2016 Lucky Leap Day Weddings in Las Vegas: Coming February 29, 2016!

Leap Year Wedding Vegas 2016
Leap with joy after your Leap Year 2016 wedding in our Doo Wop Diner!

For 2016, the absolute BEST day to get married in Vegas is coming up next month! February 29th, the day that only comes around every four years, is the BEST day for your Las Vegas Wedding! A Leap Year wedding makes your special day all the more unique!

Even though your ‘real’ anniversary will only come around every four years thereafter, think of it this way: Either you won’t have to plan a big anniversary celebration as often (if you’re a party pooper)—OR—it means you can celebrate TWO anniversaries each year, February 28th AND March 1st! Make it a two-day bash!

(Remember ladies, if you’re not yet engaged, Leap Day is the one day–traditionally, anyway– that it’s perfectly fine for a girl to propose to her guy.)

Betty Boop Wedding in Las Vegas? Or Get Married by YOUR Favorite Character!

Betty Boop wedding in VEgas
Our newest and sassiest wedding package with Betty Boop performing your ceremony!

Here’s our newest Viva Las Vegas Wedding package–featuring Betty Boop, singing and doing the honors as the two of you are booped into holy matrimony. It’s a variation on our Hollywood Starlet wedding, but with the adorable Betty Boop officiating your ceremony instead of our stunning Marilyn Monroe impersonator/minister. At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, we can pretty much accommodate your wildest wedding fantasies. Most of our staff have extensive backgrounds in Las Vegas (and even worldwide!) entertainment, so we’re very resourceful at providing you with talented actors and singers to do your bidding. In fact, we LOVE the challenges you present to us with your creative wedding ideas.

Viva talented Las Vegas staff
Our talented crew have a blast dressing up for themed weddings. Bring your own costumes/bridal gear and join us. We also rent wedding duds and costumes, if you don’t want to pack!

Our Betty Boop impersonator has years of experience portraying this popular cartoon character in theaters and theme parks. She’s coy and sexy, and very soothing to the worst wedding nerves. Betty will put a smile on your faces, your guests’ faces, and on all the faces of folks back home as you tie the knot streaming live online with Betty Boop-Oop-a-Doop.

Betty Boop fans, just ask for the Hollywood Starlet wedding, and tell our wedding planner to hold the Starlet. Ask for Betty Boop instead! Unless of course you’d like the original package with a “Marilyn” minister. Or, maybe you’d like to add Betty Boop AND Marilyn to any Elvis wedding. Have twice the star power! After all, in Las Vegas, NOTHING is over-the-top! Call us and let us know just what you’re looking for in your customized wedding package: 1-702-384-0771.

Other weddings we’ve done by special request include Bonnie and Clyde weddings, Addam’s Family weddings, even Harry Potter themed weddings. Those are just some of the many that we don’t already have on our website. Call to talk to one of our creative wedding coordinators if you have ideas that you don’t see at We’ll be happy to work out a package just for you.

Be the first couple to Boop-Oop-a-Doop down the aisle at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel!

Get Married in Vegas by an Iconic Hollywood Blonde Starlet!

Marilyn wedding vegas

If you’re big on Elvis, but even bigger on the blonde Hollywood bombshell Marilyn Monroe, consider being married in Vegas by a fantastic singing tribute artist. You won’t believe your eyes. Or, ADD Elvis to our Hollywood Starlet Wedding Package for twice the fun and twice the songs. Our fabulous Marilyn Monroe impersonator can perform your traditional, themed or Elvis wedding.

This wedding can take place either in our Main Chapel or in our retro 1950s Doo Wop Diner, if you want something a bit more quirky and casual. This ceremony is also GREAT for fun wedding vow renewals. Renewing vows on your birthday? By special request, “Marilyn” can serenade you with her breathy rendition of the birthday song.

Have a look at our Marilyn and Elvis impersonators concluding a wedding ceremony… ALL the wedding guests came dressed as movie stars and celebrities who have gone on to the great wedding chapel in the sky. At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, we believe in everything.

Shotgun Wedding in Vegas? Get a Load of Our Gangster Themed Wedding!

Bring the breadsticks! Getting married at our Gangster Themed wedding by “The Boss!”

Since Vegas is known for its colorful history (and even boasts its own Mob Museum) some Viva Las Vegas brides and grooms have chosen to get married by the mob in Las Vegas. Or the next best thing– in our Gangster Themed Wedding!

For our Gangster wedding, the chapel is decked out like an Italian restaurant, with your guests seated at tables with red and white checkered cloths, grapes and bottles of Chianti. Our “godfather” minister does the honors, thick accent and all, as music plays in the background and an Italian waiter attends to the wedding party.

The Gangster Themed Wedding package includes theatrical lighting and smoke effects, flowers, photography, music and courtesy round-trip stretch limousine service from your hotel. You can even upgrade your package to include live Internet coverage of your ceremony for family and friends who can’t be present in Las Vegas. How cool is that?

Many couples dress up in Zoot suits and fringed flapper dresses, reminiscent of the age. If you don’t want to pack all that gear, we also rent costumes right here on the premises. Give us a call or chat with us online on our website for further information on this and other creative weddings at Viva Las Vegas. (We also offer reception packages, one featuring a sumptuous Italian meal, right next door at Ron Decar’s Event Center, if you’re pulling out all the stops!) Here’s the number to speak to one of our friendly wedding staffers about weddings and/or receptions: 702-384-0771

Don’t forget, when you’re “married by the mob” in Vegas, everybody takes your marriage seriously! 😉

Elvis Wedding at the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” Sign!

Beautiful and balmy weather is just ahead in Las Vegas, and Viva Las Vegas Weddings is busily scheduling Elvis weddings at the iconic Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign. Your package includes limo service to and from the sign (where there is also parking for your guests, right on a verdant island median), flowers, photography, videography, Elvis/minister and even live music with Elvis serenading you. If you like, you can time your wedding to take place at sunset, when the rosy outdoor lighting makes for the most amazing photos.

Best of all, friends and family who can’t make the trip to Vegas can watch the whole thing (providing you tell them the time of your ceremony) via Earthcam! Have a look at what’s going on at this very moment, below:

Elvis at the Welcome to Vegas Sign
Elvis will meet you at the sign to perform your ceremony and a few tunes

Your luxury stretch limo will pick you up at your hotel and whisk you away to the “Welcome” sign, where Elvis and his entourage will await you. We take care of all the details, so all you have to do is call to schedule, or book online at Well, that, and get your marriage license downtown at the Marriage Bureau–details on our website.

The historic sign was designed in 1959 by Betty Willis, a pioneer in commercial design. It’s now one of the few remnants of Old Vegas, but remains a symbol of Sin City. Combine your wedding trip to Vegas with a visit to the Neon Museum near downtown Las Vegas.(Not far from the Marriage Bureau, if you’re going there anyway!) Here you can see the original signs from the long-gone hotels and businesses that made Las Vegas great. Fascinating tours are offered daily.

For more information on your wedding at the Las Vegas sign, or any aspect of planning your trip to Las Vegas, give one of our friendly staffers a call, 702-384-0771. They’ll be happy to chat about this or any of our other unique outdoor location weddings.

Spectacular Outdoor Wedding in Red Rock Canyon Outside Las Vegas

Get married at gorgeous Red Rock Canyon at sunset!

Spring is practically here, a time when the weather is typically breathtaking in Las Vegas. If it’s just the two of you, or if you have only a limo-full of guests, we think one of the most romantic weddings we offer at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel takes place just outside the city, and at sunset.

You’ll be whisked away from your hotel in one of our limousines, taken 20 miles west of Las Vegas into the gorgeous Red Rock Canyon. Your bouquet, minister, photographer and videographer will all be there to meet you. Your ceremony and your photo session will take place before some of the most stunning scenery in Southern Nevada.

Viva Las Vegas Weddings limo

On your way back to Las Vegas in your stretch limo (if you do marry at sundown) you’ll enjoy an exciting panoramic view of the lights of Las Vegas just as they are coming on. Plus, you can have gourmet candlelit dining reservations waiting back at your hotel. Perfect!

Visit to check out this unique traditional wedding package. And feel free to call us with any questions. We’ll be happy to take care of every detail for you to make this your dream wedding in the glorious desert sunset! 702-384-0771
