As far as Vegas chapels go this is the one you want! – Thanks to our facebook fans !

Thank you so much to our facebook fans who took the time to write nice reviews about us on Yelp! This is greatly appreciated!

Here is another one from

Downey, CA

As far as Vegas chapels go this is the one you want! dont let the name fool you they do both traditional weddings and theme weddings! You can go up and down the strip all you want (and off the strip) and see how run down and dirty a lot of them look. NOT THIS ONE!  They are easy going and easy to work with even though my wife called what seems like a million times. I thought after awhile they would just stop excepting her calls.

We originally booked the gazebo but after viewing the pictures realized it over looks a 4 story building. and re-booked at the garden. its in the back of the parking lot and out of view from your surroundings!

In all the limo driver the minister and the wedding coordinator were very professional
and I would highly recommend this chapel to anyone looking to do a Vegas wedding!

*Sorry this is long-winded* – And another nice Yelp review Thank you so much!

My husband and I saw some Elvis weddings on the Travel Channel awhile back and always joked that we should celebrate the craziness that is being a Las Vegas local and renew our vows at a chapel.   So when the stars aligned and we found a deal for an Elvis ceremony AND found out that our friends were coming to town, we knew what we had to do.

Since we are locals, we had the advantage of going in to Viva Las Vegas ahead of time to scope the place out and talk with someone in person about the different packages they offer.  We met Olivia who was really friendly and helpful and was generous enough to show us around to a couple of the areas were they have ceremonies.  First we saw the large chapel where I think most people get married, then the outdoor gazebo, and finally the Doo-Wop Diner.  We stepped into the diner, looked at each other and said, “Well, obviously this is it.”

There is a $100 deposit to reserve your ceremony.  They are very low key and if you need to change dates, times, wedding packages, flower colors, etc. they are willing to accommodate you (within a certain time frame, of course).  We had the Doo Wop Diner Package and that covered a two rose floral arrangement for me, a boutonniere for my husband, a photographer, six free 4×6 candid photos, a live stream of the ceremony on the internet, your name on the marquee, and two songs performed by Elvis.  This package was only $300.

When we arrived for our ceremony, everyone again was very friendly and accommodating.  They took us back to the diner and gave a quick run-through of what was going to happen.  Then in came Elvis- in all his glory- in an awesome white jumpsuit covered in rhinestones.  I was so excited I was jumping up and down.  And then I realized how hysterical it was that I had an Elvis from the early ’70s hanging out in a diner set up like the 1950s.  I seriously couldn’t stop laughing for the next hour.

Elvis started off by singing “Can’t Help Falling in Love” while my husband and I danced (and while I was still laughing hysterically).  He then did a nice little ceremony that was sweet at first and then silly at the end, and cracked jokes with us throughout (like when my bracelet was stuck on my dress).  He ended with “Viva Las Vegas” and we acted like fools dancing around with our friends.

Afterwards, they set us up for several posed photos and then walked us outside where we had our names on lit up on the marque.

The Pros:
-Super, super friendly employees- from the people answering the phone to Elvis himself
-Although you are one of many having a ceremony that day, they never treat you like a number
-Having your choice of several different venues for your ceremony
-Many different packages to choice from, and something to fit anyone’s budget
-My mom got to watch the ceremony on her computer back in Pittsburgh and said it worked great and that she was laughing along with us

The Cons:
-Taking the photos can feel a little bit rushed
-The price of the photos when you go to purchase them (I think they are a bit overpriced, but I think that about most photographers)
-There isn’t a lot of parking available

What Makes Viva Different from Other Chapels:
-You get to pick which songs Elvis sings (I was happily surprised to find that out- the other chapels had the songs picked out ahead of time)
-There is a minister fee (standard everywhere) and a suggested tip for the limo driver. All other tips are at your discretion. Another chapel had forced tips for everyone involved (why not just charge more for the package?).  I tipped everyone we dealt with because they were all fantastic- but that’s the point of a tip- they went above and beyond.
-Your guests are allowed to take pictures of the ceremony as long as they stay seated (a HUGE no-no everywhere else I looked)

If you are the low-key type out to have some fun, or you want to do something that people will always remember, or if you believe that a wedding is a way to say you love someone and not an excuse to throw a giant pageant and parade in your honor- then this is definitely for you.  Yes, it can go a little quickly and no, you won’t be the only girl you see in a wedding dress- but you get to say that Elvis was at your ceremony!

I had such a great time at our renewal and I really can’t say enough good things about the employees here.  If you are having a Vegas wedding, definitely look into the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel!

Insider Info: While Olivia was giving us a tour before our renewal, I had mentioned another reviewer on Yelp.  Apparently mentioning Yelp gets you a free DVD of your ceremony!

We had a beautiful, traditional ceremony that was everything I had wanted – (Review from YELP)

My husband and I got married on March 29, 2012 and had the wedding of our dreams! Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapels is known for its crazy, outlandish themed weddings, but we had a beautiful, traditional ceremony that was everything I had wanted without all the cost and headache associated with a conventional wedding.

First, we did our homework on different chapels months ahead of time. We found that many of them have hidden costs. For example, they say that filming the wedding is part of the package but you later learn that you have to pay $60 for a copy of the DVD. Viva Las Vegas did not have hidden costs and, when asked, the people were very upfront about everything. You are expected to tip the limo driver, who picks you up from your hotel and drops you off, and you are expected to tip the officiate and the photographer — but you will find that that is standard. At Viva Las Vegas and all the other chapels, you will end up paying and arm and a leg for the professional photos, so either resign to that fact or have a plan to have photos taken before or afterward by someone else at a different location. Some chapels ban family and friends from taking any photos at all. At Viva Las Vegas, guests are allowed to take pictures during the ceremony, but have to put cameras away when the professional photographer begins taking posed shots. I think it’s fair.

Before you pick a chapel, check that they haven’t been reported to the better business bureau. That helped us cross some off the list. We found that Viva Las Vegas had not been reported to the BBB and that it had the best online reviews. It also helped that they were friendly, professional, and consistent when we communicated with them over the phone and email. I had one chapel tell me that we would have 45 minutes for the ceremony and when I called back with other questions, I talked to a different person who said that we would only get 30 minutes. I want to know that the arrangements I make with one person will come to fruition on the big day!

Also, and this was a big deal, we got the officiate that we wanted – Rev. Robb. He came in on his day off to marry us because we had requested him. We had watched videos posted online of weddings held at Viva’s different chapels to decide which one we wanted (that is also a nice feature that I will talk about shortly). We were absolutely captivated by how sincere and wonderful Rev. Robb appeared as he guided the bride and groom through the ceremony. We were not so terribly impressed with another officiate we saw who, we later learned, was scheduled to perform our ceremony. Rev. Robb came to the rescue! And some of my guests even commented how beautiful his words were!

There is not a lot of parking at the chapel, but that was not a big deal for us since most of our guests took taxis. We got married in the Garden Chapel during the day. It doesn’t look like much from the outside, a sturdy canopy structure in the parking lot. But it’s gorgeous on the inside with white columns, vines, trees, white Christmas lights, and nice chairs for the guests. The aisle is short and the space is small, which is why there is a maximum of 40 guests in that chapel. We had 32 guests and it seemed big enough.

My fiancé was five minutes late, which is bad for a Vegas chapel since they book weddings back-to-back. He said that he was really stressed out, but that the wedding coordinator calmed him down and was very friendly. He and I got the “first look package,” which cost $75 extra, but allowed us to arrive separately and give and receive instructions from the coordinator and officiate separately, so that he didn’t see me until I walked down the aisle.

Another great feature was that they do a live webcast of the wedding for those who couldn’t make it to Las Vegas. Also, for an extra charge, they will archive the video on their website. We opted to get our DVD, which was part of our package, and post it on YouTube and Facebook for free.

If we ever renew our vows, I plan to do it at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapels!
