Local wedding chapels are found in many communities all over the country, and not just in Las Vegas where they were popularized. They play an important role in the wedding culture, by providing a facility that is perfectly tailored to the needs of the special day. Local wedding chapels are specifically designed for weddings, from the architecture, to the size of the facility, to the furnishings, video equipment, lighting, and sound equipment. Many couples are choosing to have their ceremony at local wedding chapels for these reasons, rather than opting to use a multi-use room or facility. In addition, using local wedding chapels is attractive to many because weddings are all that the facility does, and their staff has got the process down to perfection. First of all, the building is often architecturally designed for weddings. The auditorium is usually rectangular, longer front to back than side to side. Any bride knows the reason for this; her walk down the aisle is one of her life's greatest highlights, and a nice, long aisle will give her and her guests a greater opportunity to cherish the moment. It will also give the photographer the chance to get some good pictures then get out of the way! Local wedding chapels are usually designed to provide an intimate setting for the ceremony, so they will seat an appropriate number of guests, and the chapel will be full.
