If you haven’t chosen a date, we know already that 1/7/17, 1/17/17, 7/1/17 will certainly be popular choices. Lots of couples choose one of those memorably-digited dates to make anniversaries easier to remember. No matter what day you choose in the new year, though, our goal is to make it the most memorable day of your lives.

Best FIVE Ways to Get Married at Viva Las Vegas Weddings!

Outdoor Vegas wedding
Chances are you’ll find the BEST wedding for you among these suggestions!

Outdoor or indoor wedding? Daytime or evening wedding? Formal or very casual? Elvis or traditional? Not sure which wedding to choose after looking at our Viva Las Vegas Weddings website (www.vivalasvegasweddings.com) ?

Here are some suggestions for the BEST ceremonies to select from, based on the style of wedding that suits the two of YOU:

BEST BAREFOOT WEDDINGS

Always wanted to get married barefoot on the beach? In Vegas, the next best thing is our Elvis Blue Hawaii Wedding, or our Beach Party Wedding. You’ll have Elvis or a wacky tripped-out ’60s beachcomber as minister. Either choice is great for casual weddings, shoes optional, beachwear optional. Still, both of these themed weddings include your flowers, photography, round-trip limo service, music and beach mist… Sandals more your thing? Our Egyptian Themed Wedding calls for a toga party, or exotic costumes evoking the age of Anthony and Cleopatra.

Beach WEdding in Las Vegas
Our Beach Party wedding–come as you are, or as you’d be on the sands of Waikiki!

BEST EVENING WEDDINGS

Choose our Outdoor Garden or Gazebo packages by night for a romantic atmosphere, lit by twinkling white lights in the lush foliage. In our Main Chapel, our best candlelit ceremonies are our Phantom of the Opera Themed Wedding and our sultry and sophisticated James Bond Themed Wedding. Of course, you can opt for a more traditional wedding with the candles, adding our theatrical fog for a romantic flair. Just ask for any options that create the mood you’ll always remember for your wedding night.

Outdoor Evening Vegas wedding
TWO romantically lit outdoor chapels to choose from for your evening ceremony!

BEST BARGAIN WEDDINGS

Check out our Simplicity Wedding, Daytime Gazebo Wedding, or Elvis in our Doo Wop Diner packages. These start at around $300 and include all your basics. ALL of our weddings include elements that are unexpected, and settings that, while simple, are elegant and/or unique!

BEST LOCATION WEDDINGS

Hands down, getting married by Elvis at the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign can’t be beat. Choose a sunset wedding for flattering photos with the light of Las Vegas coming on in the distance! If you want a more natural landscape, our Beautiful Red Rock Canyon Wedding package includes everything, whisking you to a gorgeous spot just outside of Las Vegas to be married against a stunning backdrop. Each of these packages includes limo, flowers, photography and minister, all waiting for you at the location.

Elvis Vegas Sign wedding
The ultimate in Las Vegas outdoor weddings….and with Elvis!

BEST WEDDING SURPRISE

Our unique Elvis Pink Cadillac Wedding is also our most popular…just ’cause where else can you be driven INTO the chapel and down the aisle by Elvis in his vintage convertible? We also have fabulous sports car entrances in our James Bond 007 Wedding Package, our Pink Diamond (read: Panther) Package, and you can even ride in on a Harley!

In case you didn’t get to meet all of our staff members personally on your wedding day, here are a few faces to put together with names and telephone voices. We can’t picture everyone here–all the Elvi, ministers, florists, singers, dancers and tribute artists who appear in our traditional, themed and Elvis weddings. But here are some of the friendly faces that help make up Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel!
