Egyptian-Themed Wedding in Vegas: A Bride Costumes Her Entire Bridal Party!

Egyptian themed wedding Las Vegas
September’s most popular themed wedding at Viva Las Vegas: The Egyptian Wedding!

Roberto and Denise exchanged wedding vows this week in September’s most popular Egyptian-themed Wedding. Our Vegas-style themed wedding production includes sarcophagi set, misty smoke, theatrical lighting effects, lit candelabra, exotic music, a dancing girl, two buff Egyptian slave dudes, and a pharaoh minister. Not to mention, flowers, photography and round trip limo service!

Denise, the gorgeous bride, created all of her wedding party’s costumes herself! We were awed and amazed! Here’s one themed wedding in Vegas that truly inspires costumes. (Don’t worry, some couples opt for more traditional wedding wear, but our “cast” still wears Egyptian costumes. And, we also rent them in our costume shop!)

Here comes the bride!

Above and below, a couple of screen captures from the live streaming video of the Egyptian themed ceremony.

The bride can, optionally, be carried down the aisle on “Cleopatra’s Throne” or escorted by the pharaoh’s hunky guards. Live streaming internet coverage is also available. Most couples opt for that, because the wedding looks like a Cecil B. DeMille production when everyone is outfitted the way this wedding was!

For more information on this and our many other themed weddings, visit us at and click on Themed Weddings.

Our best wishes for happiness always to Roberto and his beautiful bride, Denise! We’ll always remember this stunning wedding!

Las Vegas Elvis Wedding Entrances—FIVE WAYS!

Diner Wedding with Elvis

On your wedding day in Vegas, especially if yours will be an Elvis wedding, you want Elvis to make a grand entrance. (And you, too, of course!) For most of our Elvis wedding packages, Elvis emerges through a door toward the back of the chapel and heads down the aisle to his “station” once your guests have been seated. But, at Viva Las Vegas Weddings, we have a few other options to make that entrance even more spectacular!

1. Stroll down the aisle WITH Elvis as he sings “Can’t Help Falling in Love”. Usually the groom is waiting up front for the bride, but you can always upgrade and add Marilyn or a showgirl to escort the groom down the aisle, too.

2. Have Elvis drive you right down the aisle of the chapel in a pink Cadillac convertible, complete with smoke and lighting effects! (That’s our Elvis Pink Caddy package, see at under Elvis weddings!)

Elvis can drive the couple right through the front doors of the chapel and down the aisle!

3. Having a traditional wedding with a traditional minister, but want a touch of Elvis, as a surprise? We can hide Elvis behind the curtain at the altar. The curtain goes up when he begins to sing the Elvis song of your choice. It makes for a big finish to your wedding ceremony! You’ll have to ask us for this special add-on, but it’s an amazing way to make sure your wedding is unforgettably fun.

4. Bridesmaids? Elvis can escort the ladies down the aisle one by one as he sings. We’ve also seen groomsmen (all dressed as Elvis) escorting them, with the “real” Elvis escorting the bride. We’ll arrange whatever you dream up!

We rent Elvis costumes, too, if you're having guests dress up, too!

5. Choose an unexpected venue for your Elvis wedding. Elvis can marry you in our Outdoor Gazebo or Garden ceremonies. If you prefer a traditional minister for your “I Do’s,” Elvis can pop in for a surprise ending. Our Doo Wop 50’s Diner also has several affordable Elvis packages in a setting that none of your guests will be expecting.

Give us a call for information or to discuss your ideas for your customized Elvis wedding in Vegas. Thank ya very much! 702-384-0771

Not an Elvis Fan? Let Our Tom Jones Tribute Artist Marry YOU!

We know. It’s hard to believe, but SOME people elope to Las Vegas and DON’T want an Elvis wedding. But we have traditional and themed weddings to suit every taste. And, if Elvis is not your guy, how about TOM JONES? Our tribute artist minister is the closest thing to the real deal. Not only in appearance, but he’s an AMAZING sound-alike, too!

The Viva Las Vegas “Wassup Pussycat?” wedding includes “Tom” as minister, theatrical light and fog effects, live singing (a virtual mini-concert just for you!), flowers, photography and round-trip limousine service from your Las Vegas hotel. You can add live streaming internet coverage, too, for friends and family who can’t be here in person.

Add an Elegant Wedding Reception Package to Your Viva Las Vegas Wedding!

Las vegas wedding receptions
We have FOUR unique reception venues on site, including the beautiful new Ron Decar’s Event Center!

Having a Traditional Wedding at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel? If you didn’t elope to Vegas, just the two of you, you might want to add a simple or even an elaborate reception to your ceremony, to make the celebration last! We offer full-on dining and dancing receptions, complete with selections from our gourmet menus, wedding cake designs and open bar. Or, for smaller or Elvis-themed packages, you can add a kitschy reception featuring sliders and sodas in our 50’s Doo Wop Diner!

Viva Las Vegas Weddings can offer incomparable entertainment options for your wedding reception. Choose a DJ, live professional singers and musicians, or even your favorite Vegas impersonators– from Elvis to MJ, to Liberace to Tom Jones! That way, couples who might shy away from an actual Elvis wedding in Vegas can still have Elvis (or whoever else!) entertaining at the reception!

Even if your wedding is NOT at our chapel, you can still book one of our fantastic receptions. Or maybe you want to get married by Elvis in the Diner, or the Event Center rather in one of our chapels. We can arrange that, too. All of our chapels and reception venues are just footsteps away from each other, so your wedding and revelry afterward with your guests flow seamlessly.

Menus range from cake, champagne and light bites to elaborate buffets featuring Italian, Mexican, or Continental menus. You’ll find price ranges that work for every wedding budget. Visit us at and click on “Receptions” to see our many and varied wedding reception options.
