Egyptian Themed Wedding in Las Vegas—Get Married by the Pharaoh!

Egyptian wedding in Vegas
Break out your togas, royal Egyptian duds and serpent-y headpieces, then walk down the N’aisle to be married by our minister/Pharaoh!

Egyptian weddings in Las Vegas aren’t just for Indiana Jones fans or anthropologists anymore. Our Egyptian-themed wedding package is exotic and sexy, with smoke effects, golden sarcophagi and Egyptian artifacts, and King Tut as minister. The bride is even carried down the aisle on Cleopatra’s throne by two Egyptian slave boys. Tell your guests to toga-up, too. (This Las Vegas wedding is perfect if you’re staying at Caesars Palace, by the way…) Or…Indiana Jones wardrobe works, too. This wedding package allows you to use your imagination. We’ve even had couples request Elvis to do a song with the pharaoh…whatever…We can’t say no.

You’ll have ethnic music, candlelight, photos, flowers, video coverage, and round-trip limousine service from your Las Vegas or downtown hotel. You can even ask to have your wedding streamed live online for friends and family who can’t make it to “Egypt” for your unique nuptials along the Nile. No costumes? We have rentals.

Hunky Egyptian guys and an exotic dancing girl--all included in your Egyptian wedding package!

Alison Arngrim, best known as Nellie Oleson on “Little House on the Prairie,” is making a special appearance on November 13th at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel (AND Ron Decar’s Event Center, right next next door). Our Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel becomes a part of a hilarious Las Vegas production! Joni and Gina’s Wedding is a side-splitting interactive comedy dinner show, but with a twist. There are two brides, which makes the show a perfect and whimsical celebration of the legalization of same sex marriage in Nevada last month.

Troy Heard, the show’s producer explains, “Alison Arngrim played the minister for awhile during the L.A. run. She had a little time in her schedule promoting her book ‘Confessions of a Prairie Bitch,’ so she decided to grace us with her presence.” Arngrim reprises the role of Reverend Pat, the wacky officiant at Joni and Gina’s wedding. And, since she’s really a licensed officiant, Arngrim will also be available to conduct legal ceremonies on the night of November 13th. “Ever since the ban was lifted we’ve been wanting to marry a couple at the show.” Interested couples can contactTroy Heard at joniandgina@gmail.com for details. Best of all, couples being married by Arngrim will receive complementary admission to the show!

After the "wedding" at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, you'll dine next door for the reception at the gorgeous Event Center!

Check-in and cocktails begin at 6:45 p.m. and the ceremony begins promptly at 7:30. Tickets are $59.95 for General Admission, which includes the show, buffet, non-alcoholic beverage, and champagne toast; and $79.95 for VIP which includes all of the aforementioned goodies, above, premium seating, and special wedding gift. Las Vegas locals receive $10.00 off General Admission with valid I.D. Tickets can be purchased in advance at www.joniandgina.com. For more information, call 702-423-6366.

Winter Wedding Ideas at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel

Winter Las Vegas Weddings
Red dress and white lilies, or white dress and cascading red roses, December and January weddings are classic and gorgeous!

Planning a winter wedding in Las Vegas? In December and January, hotel rates are way down (except for New Year’s Eve, of course!) and temperatures are generally mild–perfect for a winter wedding. Traditional brides know their wedding photos will be stunning with winter colors of red and white. Our Main Chapel is generally decorated in red poinsettias for the season, too. Sunny, mild afternoons often allow for outdoor gazebo or garden weddings in winter months, and these venues are fairly well sheltered from the elements.

Classic red, white and black make perfect winter wedding colors!
