A Harry Potter Wedding at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel!

Harry Potter Wedding at Viva Las Vegas
Marriage Wizardry at Viva Las Vegas

Dumbledore and Professor Snape somehow saw through the trickery as groom, Benjamin (dressed as Darth Vader, of course), marched down the aisle to meet his fair Regina, waiting at the altar. Dumbledore presided over the couple’s vows of warwedlock, while Snape kept the oddly-garbed Muggle-born guests at wand’s length. The whole affair was rather odd and topsy turvy. But, this sort of thing is all in a day’s work for the magical staff at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel.

Check out the wedding party, who were obviously under some sort of spell. We’re not sure if they had the better time, or we did. One thing is clear, we are all wishing Benjamin and Regina a lifetime of memories as unique and happy as their wedding day!

Viva Las Vegas Weddings: Brides Who Really Make a Grand Entrance

It’s not necessarily that these brides are weak in the knees with wedding day jitters. Some themed weddings at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapels, though, are so all-inclusive that the bride doesn’t even have to walk down the aisle on her own power. Our Fairy Tale Wedding, for example, includes a bridal entrance in a Cinderella-like carriage. Beach Party weddings, like the one below, feature the bride perched on a surfboard and carried down the aisle by a couple of buff surfer dudes.

Is sailing down the Nile more your style? In our Egyptian themed wedding, the bride is transported on Cleopatra’s throne, held aloft by two hunky slaves as her Anthony awaits. Have a look, below.

For those who like a more contemporary “ride,” there’s always the pink Cadillac entrance, the Harley-Davidson entrance, or even an entrance with James Bond in a smashingly sexy sports car. Or? If we’ve captivated your imagination, let us hear from you. If there’s something we can do to personalize and put a spotlight on your trip down the aisle, we’ll pull out all the stops to make it happen!

This weekend only, couples have the opportunity of a lifetime– to be married by “The King” himself at the fabulous Electric Daisy Carnival at the Las Vegas Speedway. Even with all the thrilling weddings and special effects we put on at The Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, we can’t compete with the fireworks, music and over-the-top creativity seen from our “chapel” at the EDC! Just check out the video!

Our mobile chapel will be set up right in the center of the action. We’ll be doing live weddings (be sure to get your license first!) as well as vow renewals and commitment ceremonies. For all the details, you’ll want to call Brian or Eileen directly at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel asap at 1-800-574-4450.

A Peek Behind the Scenes at Viva Las Vegas

Rocky Horror Wedding in Vegas
What goes on behind the scenes at Viva Las Vegas? Do you REALLY want to know?
We dug up this video retrospective from our cobweb-y Halloween wedding vault. Since holidays are always a bit hectic at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, we thought you’d find the crypt-like chaos pretty intense, as we did back in 2007! Next to Valentine’s Day, Halloween brings out the most heart-throbbing numbers of wedding spirits and their guests….Even scarier, Halloween is not just for Bridezillas anymore! Take a look at the vast array of horrifyingly creative costumes we see on a typical Halloween night at the chapel.

October 31st books well in advance of the date, so let this serve as a warning to claim your plot in our chapel “cemetery” as soon as you can. Halloween falls on a Thursday this year, so it’s likely we’ll be celebrating throughout the weekend, too. For a few suggested packages, see www.vivalasvegasweddings.com/halloween_wedding_specials, but don’t be afraid to add a few diabolical twists of your own to your package!

If you’re going to honeymoon in Las Vegas (after being wed at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel), we’d like to offer up a few suggestions for spectacular hotels, based on reviews passed on to us as locals by word of mouth. Of course, every couple is looking for something that suits their personal style, so here are a few “bests” arranged by category of experience. Prices of hotels can vary by day of the week or season, but we’ll use a dollar-sign system to give you a comparative idea.

Privacy, Luxury, and Class? You won’t do better than The Four Seasons Hotel, set upon the top floors of the Mandalay Bay. World class service and views, plus an entrance without all the hubbub of the casino. $$$$

Hip, sexy and a bit on the wild side? Try the new Cosmopolitan Hotel with its romantic balconies overlooking the Strip. Great eateries and nightlife here. $$$

Classic Romance and intimate dining part of your honeymoon plans? The all-suite Encore Hotel has it all in one spot. $$$

Great location, great pool, and bright and airy at a budget-conscious price? The newly-remodeled Tropicana Hotel is in the middle of all the action without the higher price tag. $$
