Renewing Wedding Vows with a Whole Family of Elvises

Make it a family affair when renewing your wedding vows in Vegas with Elvis!

On your 10th anniversary, you want to celebrate the wonderful milestone in your marriage, and a trip to Las Vegas fills the bill! Lil and Dave from So. California celebrated their own 10th anniversary last week by renewing their vows with Elvis in our Viva Las Vegas Weddings Main Chapel. This fun-loving bunch took it a step farther, though. Dave and their six-and-seven-year-old sons dressed at Elvis, too. That’s a LOT of white jumpsuit!

The family brought a bevy of Hawaiian-shirted friends and family for their Elvis Blue Hawaii ceremony, our most popular wedding package for not only renewals, but for first weddings, too.

Zombie Elvis wedding
Our seasonal special- request Zombie Elvis brings in a lot of bride and groom zombies–and a lot of zombie guests. Kinda goes without saying.

Don’t look good in a jumpsuit? Hey, it’s October, and we’re doing a LOT of Gothic and graveyard themed weddings with Dracula, Grim Reaper all month long. But, our latest craze is the Zombie Elvis as minister, and your zombie Halloween costume can double as wedding duds at this time of year. (We’ve had some gorgeous zombie brides, believe it or not, dangling brains and all!)

Your Zombie Elvis or “regular” Elvis can perform your ceremony, indoors or out. ( October is THE most glorious weather month in Vegas for an Outdoor Gazebo or Garden wedding.) At Viva Las Vegas, we love to offer fun choices that inspire you to add your own special touches. Dress up the whole family and come celebrate your anniversary with us! Best wishes for many more years of happiness to Lil and Dave and family! See you in another 10!

Halloween is right up there with Valentine’s Day for our unforgettable Viva Las Vegas Weddings. All of our chapels are decked out with frightening cemetery- themed decor, and the staff are all dressed up for the occasion, including our usually-sedate ministers. Even our Outdoor Gazebo and Garden chapels get a makeover for Halloween night. Your Halloween wedding will be the most fun you’ve had since trick-or-treating as a kid. We promise.

THE Most Expensive Wedding in Las Vegas (Sorry, NOT at Viva Las Vegas Weddings)

We do host elegant weddings at Viva Las Vegas, but they are affordable—and fun!

At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, we take pride in offering some of the most elegant, creative and affordable weddings in Las Vegas. Even our most elaborate wedding ceremonies–traditional, Elvis, or themed– won’t break your budget. That’s just one of many reasons for getting married in Las Vegas. Recently, though, we heard about a new wedding package at the Wynn resort hotel that will set you back $500,000! (How can we ever compete?) Holy cow! For about 1/1,000 of that price, we can offer you a gorgeous all-inclusive wedding package, and you can spend the savings on a couple of houses and a car…

Las Vegas is known for the over-the-top everything, and the Wynn’s amazingly pricey ceremony includes the wedding rings, a five-day party, and likely just about every kind of pampering they can dish out at one of Las Vegas’ most incredibly classy hotels. Well, we can’t compete. But, seriously, we probably won’t have to…

Don’t believe us? Check out this report on the Wynn’s new wedding extravaganza:

If you’re looking for a lavish Las Vegas wedding, there are many options at all the Strips mega-resorts. But we kinda like our options. For far less than their simplest weddings, you can upgrade any of our packages with JUST those features you want. You can even add a honeymoon suite at the Palms Resort and Casino to any of our wedding packages. You can add limo service (if it’s not already included in the package you pick out), or you can add a reception dinner with a choice of delectable gourmet menus. You can add live entertainment and dancing. You can add multiple Elvises! No matter what you include in your Viva Las Vegas Wedding, you’ll be saving a bundle, comparatively anyway.

Because we take pride in making all of our weddings beautiful and exceptional, from the most romantic to the most fun and quirky, we don’t want to say we’re “cheap.” But, well… Let’s just say affordable. Call us anytime to discuss. Or gossip. 🙂 1-702-384-0771
