Drunkard can get married in Vegas!?

When you hear the name "Las Vegas", what comes up with in your head? I just came up with the Casino because I wanted to be a dealer of casino in Vegas in my childhood.

Can you believe In Vegas, drunk people can get married!? Wow!! Vegas is famous not only its gamble but also its marriage!
This summer I watched this movie called What Happens in Vegas and amazed that they can marry even though they were very drunk. And I remembered in FRIENDS, there is a similar situation. In end of season5 and beginning of season6, Ross and Rachel get married in Vegas! Of course they were very drunk, too!!!
Next morning they get married, Monica, Phoebe, Chandler and Joey eat breakfast at hotel's restaurant. Then Ross and Rachel come there.

Chan:- Are we gonna talk about what you guys did last night?
Rach:- What do you mean "last night"? Nothing happened last night.
Ross:- Yeah.
Pheobe:- Ross invited us all to watch.
Mon: Rach, we weren't gonna miss our friends getting married.
Rach:- Oh, who got married?
Chan:- You did.
Ross:- What? Hello. We didn't get married.
Rach:- No, we didn't. That's ridi...ha (Ross and Rache are pointing each other)
Ross:- Wait, wait, wait, I remember being in a chapel.
Rach:- Oh, my god.
Ross:- They would not let us get married when we were that drunk.
Joey:- They let you get married when you drunk. Most people who get married in Vegas are drunk.
Phoebe:- Now, I'm drunk right now.
