Barbie + Elvis = Priscilla? Formulas for Setting the Perfect Wedding Date



They say spouses begin to look alike after a few years of marriage, but sometimes couples start out like matched bookends. Take, for example, Elvis and Priscilla. We’re commemorating the upcoming 46th wedding anniversary of Elvis and his doll-like bride by sharing this photo of Priscilla-look-alike Barbie. (Who knew, Barbie collectors.) Elvis and Priscilla were married on May 1, 1967, at the Aladdin hotel in Las Vegas. (Today it’s Planet Hollywood, for all you Vegas trivia lovers.)

Because we’ve been in the Elvis wedding business for some time now, we expect to be seeing a few Priscilla’s and Elvi walking down the aisle at Viva Las Vegas on that special date. (And, yes, we can provide costumes and wigs, if you don’t bring your own.) For die hard Elvis fans, sharing an anniversary with Priscilla and The King makes choosing a wedding date a no-brainer.

Once you’ve found your mate, how will you go about setting the date? Some folks find it romantic to marry on the anniversary of the day they first met. Traditionalists might choose parents’ or grandparents’ anniversaries to tie the knot. Holiday-themed weddings are popular with us, so you’ll want to call us early!  At Viva Las Vegas, the memorably-numbered dates book far in advance–11-12-13 and 12-13-14 will fill up fast! (Our most history-making dates have been 10-10-10 and 11-11-11, not to mention 12-12-12. We are fresh out of those perfectly-repeating digits for awhile, though.)
Give your special day a bit of special thought. Choose a date that reflects the uniqueness of you as a couple. It may be too late this year to wed on Elvis’s anniversary, but there’s always his birthday…
