This May 1st will be the 50th (GOLDEN!) wedding anniversary of Elvis Presley and his one-time bride, the lovely Priscilla! They were married in an intimate eight-minute ceremony in Las Vegas at the former Aladdin Hotel, now Planet Hollywood. If you’re huge fans of THE KING, why not share an anniversary with Elvis and Priscilla at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel? If you’re planning to get married in Las Vegas in the near future, that is!
We’ve been doing Elvis weddings (as well as the traditional ones) at Viva Las Vegas Weddings for nearly 20 years now, so we already know we’ll see a few “Priscillas” and “Elvi” standing at the altar on that iconic date. (We do rent the costumes and wigs, if you want to dress up! Or, bring your own!) For die-hard Elvis fans, sharing an anniversary with Priscilla and The King makes choosing a wedding date pretty easy. The day falls on a Monday this year, and while it may be hard for guests to make it to Vegas on a weekday, we DO have live streaming internet service so they can watch back home….even from work! Plus, you’ll find honeymoon hotel rooms at bargain rates since it’s not a weekend.
If you’re wearing traditional wedding clothes, consider adding a “Priscilla” impersonator as matron of honor. It’s also a fun and wacky way to celebrate for a wedding vow renewal, if the two of YOU have an anniversary coming up. Be sure to request golden ribbon on your bouquet and boutonniere to signify the 50th anniversary! (Let us know when you’re choosing your flowers, included in every wedding package.)
Our Elvis weddings can be performed in either an elegant traditional style with a licensed minister to officiate, with Elvis singing a romantic ballad during the vows, or with Elvis performing the ceremony himself. See all of our various packages on our website or customize your own version! Our most popular Elvis weddings are the Elvis Blue Hawaii—with theatrical fog, a hula dancer and three unforgettable songs–and the Elvis Pink Caddy where Elvis drives your right down the aisle and into the chapel in his vintage convertible.
