A lot of folks don’t know about our Viva Las Vegas Weddings costume rental shop right here on our chapel grounds. It comes in handy for our many Elvis and Themed weddings, for those brides and grooms who are more up for a fun adventure than for traditional wedding duds. Our MOST popular costumes for rental are the Elvis white jumpsuit and Marilyn Monroe’s white dress from The Seven Year Itch! We’re not exactly sure why, but “Elvis” and “Marilyn” tie the knot more frequently at Viva Las Vegas Weddings than any other couple! And, in case you’re having a multiple-couple wedding vow renewal, or in the event your guests want to dress up, too…we have a LOT of Elvis and Marilyn outfits to choose from!
The Costume Shop also has Medieval and Egyptian gear, ensembles for our 1950s, ’60s and ’70s Disco Weddings, science fiction/space-themed outfits and more–plus accessories and props galore for every era imaginable. For our traditional weddings, Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel also has a Tuxedo Rental Shop offering a host of sizes and contemporary styles. So, feel free to pack light when coming to Vegas for your Elvis, Themed or Traditional Wedding. Our rental shops and chapel are conveniently on the way to the Marriage License Bureau, too, if you want to try things on ahead of time, you can combine pre-wedding errands!
For more information about the costumes we rent, or for ideas about customizing your unique Las Vegas Wedding, give us a call at 702-384-0771.
Veteran’s Day is coming, and that means Veteran’s Day Las Vegas wedding specials–and military discounts all year long at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel. For the November holiday weekend, our all-inclusive Veteran’s Day packages in our Main Chapel or Outdoor Gazebo or Garden Chapels begin at under $300. Plus, if you are a veteran or are currently serving in the military, your minister’s fee will be waived when you show your military I. D. (A $60 value!) We proudly support our military personnel and their families as a member of Military Partners. (http://www.militarypartners.com/Links/Market_Directory/Wedding.asp) And, you don’t have to be a veteran to take advantage of the holiday package specials!
Military Partners launched in August of 1999 to reach a vast target audience of Armed Forces members worldwide. This organization offers a “Military One-Stop” website that includes a detailed market directory providing special discounts and values to the military. Companies such as AT&T, Pepsi-Cola, Volvo Military Sales and Delta Air Lines were among the first to join the partnership website. Military Partners, through the initiatives of this site and its partners, aims to ease the difficulty of lengthy deployment and/or family separation. We are pleased to be a part of this effort to give back to servicemen and servicewomen everywhere.
Check out the details for Veteran’s Day specials below, and give us a call to reserve your time slot during the popular holiday weekend! Choose from a variety of romantic, traditional ceremonies, or ask us about adding Elvis to sing a song or two. The weather in Las Vegas is generally mild and beautifully suited for our outdoor weddings, day or evening. Even if you choose a Main Chapel ceremony, you’ll enjoy one of the balmiest seasons to visit Vegas for a wedding or wedding vow renewal!

This summer, Italian travel bloggers Francesca and Roberto visited Las Vegas and took the opportunity to renew their wedding vows with Elvis at Viva Las Vegas Weddings! They told about their experiences at our wedding chapel and in Las Vegas on social media, and we’ve included their video coverage and a translation of their blog, below! The charming couple brought along their young son, then celebrated in a typically American way–at McDonald’s!–right after the ceremony! Have a look:
We are (re) married in Las Vegas today, with Elvis singing “Love me tender” and the church entrance on a Pink Cadillac. A ceremony attended by our baby, who was the most excited of everyone, and who saw us swap our promises and rings again (and then go celebrating in McDonald’s next door!). A dream born when, almost ten years ago, we swore eternal love on the top of the Empire State Building but also a circle to close. And we love the “Giotto” circles … 😉
“Welcome to the fabulous Las Vegas”. It welcomes you so, with these words written on a sign, the largest city in Nevada. And just this sign is probably one of the most photographed things in the city, an icon of a trip to Las Vegas, reproduced everywhere, on shirts, magnets and other thousands of souvenirs that of course can be purchased at The World’s Largest Gift Shop. Las Vegas, the “fabulous city”, but also a place where, in appearance, everything is possible. A “Land of Promises” that invites every year millions of visitors who choose to spend their stay there. And it does not matter if the Las Vegas holiday is in the style of unbridled luxury, sobriety or strolling on the Strip to observe what’s going on around it. There is a place for everyone in Las Vegas, a city where no one is excluded or feeling different: Strenuous players, young people in search of sballo, celibacy or bachelor party, couples in the process of crowning their dream of love or family noisy. Everyone finds a reason to go to Las Vegas and a dream to chase, for a few hours or for a few days.
We too came to town in the wake of a dream, lulled during our first trip to the United States. Las Vegas was the last stop with the home exchange before we started our Coast to Coast in the US in the camper and it was a vacation in the trip, a carefree stage to relax a bit, sure that in the morning we would have been waiting for us Usually blue sky, a swimming pool where we dive and the same hot sun over our heads. The city, incredible to say, has been relaxing for us, because visiting Las Vegas means having everything at your fingertips, at least once you get to the Strip without having to watch the clock to get around the things you see. The city never sleeps and there is time to do all that is to visit the Madame Tussauds Museum, go to the High Roller or sit at Bacchanal for a pantagruelike brunch. Because almost everything in Las Vegas is open “H 24” waiting for tourists to find the right time to go there without hesitation and stress.
Perhaps that’s why a trip to Las Vegas makes you understand what it’s like to take your time. Because if there is a city where we have been until now that embodies this popular way of telling America is just this, where everyone can feel king, at least for a day, with the world at hand (obviously in its version “in scale “) and provided you have a credit card in the wallet! 😉 “A huge Disneyland for adults,” as we defined the city on our arrival, to explain to our fifties how ever, just off the desert, there were castles like those of fairy tales. By the time we did, however, we did not go far. And now we can say, without fear of being denied, that one of the reasons why people organize a vacation in Las Vegas is just to get back kids and spend some days convinced that everything is possible, just as they did during their childhood.
Best wishes to Francesca and Roberto for much more happiness in the coming years. Come see us again one day, and thank you for sharing this special adventure with us!
For couples who share a fondness for all things disco and 1970s–or even if you just love John Travolta, here’s a unique Las Vegas wedding package that has all the right moves! Our Disco Wedding Package has smoke and theatrical lighting effects, disco sounds, and a white-suited minister with a bit of New York City ’70s swag.
Bring your retro wedding duds, or rent costumes at our onsite costume shop. And, tell your guests to do the same. After all, they’ll be wanting to get up and dance in the aisles right along with you after the vows are said. Some brides and grooms, though, choose to go traditional instead. It’s perfectly fine to just let the minister and the atmosphere create the mood. Be sure to opt for online streaming coverage so friends and family who can’t come to Vegas can still share your disco flashback wedding or wedding vow renewal–live!
Package Features Include:
Decade-appropriate Character as Minister
Theatrical Lighting and Fog
6 Rose Bouquet for the Bride
Matching Boutonniere for the Groom
Unity Candle Lighting During Ceremony
10 Candid Ceremony Prints
Names In Lights on the Marquee
Free Wedding Website and Wedding Invitation
Wedding Wish List Registry

We’re sure you’ll agree, that’s a lot of disco bang for the buck!

Put on those platforms, and come boogie the night away in Vegas after your unforgettable Disco Wedding!
We love ALL our fabulous couples at Viva Las Vegas Weddings! In fact, we go home every night with fun and sentimental stories to tell our families about the many Elvis, Themed and Traditional weddings we were able to be a part of that day. But this week, Rene and Mayleen of San Francisco blew us away–with their happy energy and thoughtfulness–in an Elvis Pink Cadillac ceremony we will long remember!
The pair are traveling across eleven states as part of their Las Vegas wedding adventure. For their ceremony, we were honored and delighted they chose Elvis as minister at our very own Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel! (Rene told us he’s watched quite a few of our themed weddings live on Earthcam ahead of time!) Mayleen and Rene really pulled out all the stops by upgrading their wedding with showgirls and Elvis singing “Live in Concert” four iconic songs during their exchange of vows. For the big finish, this lovely couple and their guests danced along a conga line as Elvis performed a lively rendition of–what else?–“Viva Las Vegas!” The bride and groom archived their live-streamed wedding online, so for the next 90 days we can also share that with you! Check out all the fun by clicking the link below:
Rene and Mayleen also shared their love story on their free wedding invitation website, included with all our Viva Las Vegas Weddings bookings. Read their story here!
Welcome to our wedding page 🙂
How We Met
Mayleen was on Alamak Chat sometime December 2002 when she met Ren. Alamak Chat was a free chat site visited by millions of people until its popularity waned. It’s a chat site for good girls looking for goofy & weird-looking men. Mayleen fell in love with Ren’s childish ways, sense of humor, and how he loves & takes care of his two adorable cats. Everytime Ren’s in the chatroom, he did nothing but flood the room with the dumbest & most immature posts (e.g. “Hey you, you stink!” There were other posts too rude to mention). Ren fell in love with Mayleen’s beautiful personality. She’s intelligent. She has a kind, caring & generous heart. Someone’s momma always said: “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know who you’re gonna end up marrying & spending your life with.”
On January 30, 2017, Ren was eating sashimi when he playfully molded a thin strip of salmon into an engagement ring. Ren showed it to Mayleen & quipped: “We’ve known each other for 15 happy years. Time flies fast. Will you marry me, honey?” And she said Yes….HOORAY!!!!!!
A Las Vegas Wedding
We love Las Vegas. So many things to do and see. The fun & happiness never run out in Vegas. We want a fun & non-traditional wedding, so we decided to have the King of Rock & Roll to marry us. The King will be accompanied by two beautiful Showgirls, and driving his fabulous Pink Cadillac for a complete Las Vegas experience!
Our heartfelt best wishes go out to Rene and Mayleen, and we hope we’ll see you again one day for an anniversary wedding vow renewal. You two absolutely made our day! 🙂
