Authentic Brands Group has papered the capital of Elvis-themed nuptials with cease-and-desist letters — which could mean it's now or never for the $2 billion wedding industry in Las Vegas.

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

Authentic Brands Group has papered the capital of Elvis-themed nuptials with cease-and-desist letters, which could mean it's now or never for Vegas' $2 billion wedding industry. But even if an Elvis lookalike doesn't hear your vows, finding that someone to love you tender may really be all that matters.

It's MORNING EDITION.
