COVID UPDATE: Chapel of the Flowers Safe and Clean Program
As of late April 2020, Las Vegas has been slowly reopening local businesses amid the coronavirus pandemic. Chapel of the Flowers has created the “Safe and Clean Program” as a response to perform ceremonies safely and do its part to combat the virus. This program pairs the company’s COVID safety procedures with a robust cleaning routine that reflects the standard precautions outlined by the CDC using EPA/ FDA approved cleaning supplies that kill the coronavirus, personal protective equipment (PPE), and safety equipment. Our iconic Las Vegas wedding chapel is dedicated to giving couples a memorable celebration with the peace of mind that the Chapel is doing their part to keep customers and employees safe.
Safe and Clean Program
Since 1960, Chapel of the Flowers has been devoted to providing exceptional services for couples that desire ceremonies & receptions in Las Vegas. With the current situation of the coronavirus outbreak, the Chapel has enhanced its cleaning procedures for couples and employees to ensure a safe environment while on property.

* Please Note: safety precautions are subject to change at any time, as the CDC guidelines are continually changing. Chapel of the Flowers is committed to following the most current guidelines outlined by the CDC.
To prevent the spread of COVID-19, Chapel of the Flowers has kicked its normal cleaning routine into high gear. Using the latest cleaning technology, the Chapel is using top-of-the-line cleaning materials approved by the FDA and EPA to ensure we are staying clean.
- All highly trafficked areas and surfaces on the Chapel’s property and limousines are being treated with an antimicrobial protectant spray to prevent the spread of viruses and germs. The Bio-Spear Antimicrobial Spray is non-toxic, and will not damage clothing or irritate the skin.
What is Antimicrobial Protectant Spray?

Antimicrobial cleaning materials have been around for years and heavily used in the Airline industry to prevent the spread of viruses on soft & hard surfaces. When the antimicrobial spray adheres to a surface, it creates a germ and virus killing barrier that will prevent these microorganisms from infecting any treated surface. The disinfecting qualities of these sprays can last anywhere from a couple of weeks to a couple of months.
Chapel of the Flowers uses an Electrostatic Sprayer to apply the antimicrobial solution to the surfaces around the chapel. The electrostatic mist efficiently coats the surface — including the sides, underside, and backside. By using this tool and the antimicrobial protectant, the Chapel’s surfaces will continuously protect against germs and viruses. Even though the product fights viruses and germs for up to 30 days, Chapel of the Flowers applies a fresh application every few weeks.
- In addition to using the antimicrobial spray, all chapels and limos are adequately wiped down and sanitized after each couple.
- Hand sanitizer stations with 4-hour persistent, nonalcohol-based hand sanitizer are located in high-traffic and employee areas. This is in addition to the alcohol-based hand sanitizer that is also available throughout the property.
- Highly-touched areas are wiped down multiple times daily.
- Each employee has been given Antimicrobial Cleaning Products to use in their home & cars to keep them safe and clean outside of work.
Safety Precautions for Weddings and Guests
The CDC and Nevada’s Government has mandated rules regarding social distancing, gatherings of large groups, and face masks. With these guidelines in mind, Chapel of the Flowers is doing the following to keep couples and wedding guests as safe as possible during these uncertain times.
- Face mask requirements have recently changed. New CDC and Nevada State guidance stated as of May 13, 2021, fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a mask in most indoor and outdoor settings. Fully vaccinated means, that you have received your second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine or single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, and it has been least 2-weeks from the time of last dose. If you are not fully vaccinated, we ask that you wear a face mask to protect yourself and others around you.
Where you should wear a mask if you are not fully vaccinated while visiting Chapel of the Flowers:
- Couples and guests should wear a Face Mask during limousine transports. The limo driver will provide face masks to anyone that needs one.
- Guests should wear a mask when entering and exiting any indoor location.
- Guests or couples who state they have a mental or physical disability that prevents them from wearing a mask do not have to wear a mask while on property.
- Touchless temperature checks are available for couples and guests attending a wedding.
- Starting on June 1, 2021, all chapels are available to book at full capacity. Social distancing is not required for businesses, but in encouraged for couples and guests not fully vaccinated. For couples that would like to maintain social distancing, we suggest holding their ceremony in our outdoor Gazebo and larger chapels (Glass Gardens and La Capella Chapel) to allow for social distancing. Victorian and Magnolia Chapels are also available for smaller weddings (micro weddings).
