IMAG1002

Whether you’re renewing your wedding vows in Las Vegas with your children in attendance or are getting married and have children already, you may want to include the kids in your special day by choosing a fun themed wedding. That way, everyone can dress up and play a part in the ceremony.

First off, you’ll want to choose your theme from the drop down menu on our homepage at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com. Once you’re decided, costume ideas and characters are a no-brainer. If you’re not quite sure what themed wedding to choose, here are some photos and ideas that have been popular at the chapel over the years. Don’t think costumed weddings are just for Halloween time! At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, we dress up every day!

Below is a family participating in one of our Intergalactic Themed Weddings, wearing the costumes of their favorite characters. For this wedding, you can choose a Darth Vader minister, or, if you’re not exactly from the universe with the Dark Side, a “Captain Quirk” or Starfleet Vulcan minister makes a great substitute. Bring your own costumes, or check with our friendly staff to see if our onsite costume rental shop has what you need!

If your family hails from Scotland, Germany, Japan, or another country with colorful national garb, consider dressing in the style of your ancestors. We can even add appropriate music to your ceremony. Don’t forget, we’re happy to customize any aspect of your wedding. The family below had a fun and memorable wedding day in their national dress! Lots of grooms wear kilts, even if it’s an Elvis Wedding!

Pirate weddings look GREAT with fancy pirate duds all around! Kids can dress as Peter Pan, Tinkerbell…let your imagination go crazy here. Put Uncle Joe in an alligator suit…OR…? Just ask, you can add Godzilla as a best man. VERY few people have Godzilla in their wedding pictures. (It HAS been done before at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel!)

Sometimes your “kids” are all adults. In that case, there are always great weddings featuring styles from past decades…Choose your favorite era…We’ve done everything from Louis XIV to Gatsby to 1950s-80s! We can arrange for the right music to set the tone, and we’ll make sure the minister matches whatever period your wedding will be set in!
