If Cara Delevingne is doing it, then whatever it is must be cool.
But, then, getting married in Las Vegas has never gone out of fashion.
The 26 year-old supermodel is said to have tied the knot with her Pretty Little Liars actress girlfriend Ashley Benson, 29, in a £245 Elvis-themed ceremony at city’s Little White Chapel in Las Vegas Boulevard, with A-list pals Charlize Theron, Sophie Turner and The Jonas Brothers in attendance.
The wedding belles are believed to have worn black and continued to keep things low-key as they headed back to their hotel room following the ceremony.
Michael Kelly, who owns the chapel, said: “They were clearly devoted to each other and they had the biggest smiles on their faces.
"You could see that they were serious about what they were doing but having the most fun. They wanted it simple, quiet and easy.”
They’re far from the first famous names to marry in Vegas – but when the stars do it Vegas style, is it ever Viva Forever?
Elvis Presley and Priscilla Anne Bealieu
Perhaps the most iconic Vegas wedding of all time, Elvis married Priscilla at Milton Prell’s Aladdin Hotel in 1967.
They decided to wed in secret so as to avoid the press and only 14 people were present at the service.
Priscilla said: “My wedding was very unusual. It was the people closest to us, and private, and that’s how we wanted it. We didn’t want a fan club. We didn’t want a circus.”
Elvis himself is now synonymous with Vegas weddings and impersonators can be found at many chapels.
Length of marriage: Six years

Mia Farrow and Frank Sinatra
Ol’ Blue Eyes married his third wife, actress, Mia Farrow at the Sands Hotel in 1966 – where the singer was living at the time. The two met when Farrow was 19 year old and Sinatra was aged 48 and Frank’s fellow Rat Pack member, Dean Martin, famously said: “Marry Mia Farrow? I’ve got scotch older than her”.
The actual ceremony only lasted four minutes and no members of Sinatra’s family attended.

Corrie star Katherine, 39, married Ryan Clark in a secret ceremony at the Little Church of the West, in 2013 – the same place that Jack and Vera Duckworth went to renew their vows in a 1997 special of the soap. The actress didn’t even tell her family about her wedding plans. She said: “It was awesome. I’ll never forget that moment for the rest of my life. If we had done a traditional wedding we would have been doing it for everyone else, but this was for us.”
