Get Married in Las Vegas on 1/8/18–Elvis’s Birthday!!!!

Elvis birthday wedding
Best Elvis wedding date EVER! 1/8/18–easy to remember, and the birthday of THE KING!

If you’re planning to get married in Las Vegas in the next few months, a new year is right around the corner! If you’re like many couples getting married in Vegas in 2018, you’ll want to consider the best date, based on many personal factors, also taking into consideration a memorable anniversary date!

The most popular date in the coming year will be 1/8/18, which falls on a Monday. AND, if you’re here to get married in Vegas by Elvis—it’s his birthday! (Elvis would have been 83 years old this January.) Weekdays aren’t always right for everyone when it comes to a wedding, though. But you will find great room rates during the week for your honeymoon stay, and lighter post-holiday crowds to boot! Another busy wedding day will be 1/18/18. Pretty much the eighteenth of ANY month makes an unforgettable, repeating-digit choice for your Las Vegas wedding memories. We’re guessing 8/18/18 will be a sell-out, just because it happens to fall on a Saturday, the most booked day of the week for weddings!

You can choose a traditional wedding and a traditionally memorable wedding date in 2018 when you plan ahead!

If you’re planning a Gothic Themed Wedding for 2018, April and July offer up Friday the 13th’s, and, of course, there’s Halloween! Our Gothic and Graveyard weddings include theatrical fog, candlelight and series music, plus your choice of Grim Reaper, Dracula or Zombie Elvis as minister.

St. Patrick's Day wedding in Las Vegas

Valentine’s Day, the single most popular wedding day of the year, will fall on a Wednesday this year. All of our romantic indoor and outdoor chapels will be filled with love and especially meaningful knot-tying, even though it’s midweek. If you really want to book a Saturday wedding, though, St. Patrick’s Day is the date for you in 2018! We’ll be doing tons of “green” weddings. Book early and you can upgrade to a lucky leprechaun minister! (For details, give us a call at 702-384-0771—you’ll want to book a leprechaun officiant early!)

Outdoor Vegas weddings
Our picturesque outdoor weddings –day or evening–are popular romantic ceremonies, with or without Elvis!

For more information on booking any of our Traditional, Elvis or Themed Weddings, visit us at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com or call a friendly wedding planner at 702-384-0771.

Elvis and Marilyn Weddings
Our most popular costume rentals here at Viva Las Vegas Weddings? Elvis and Marilyn!

A lot of folks don’t know about our Viva Las Vegas Weddings costume rental shop right here on our chapel grounds. It comes in handy for our many Elvis and Themed weddings, for those brides and grooms who are more up for a fun adventure than for traditional wedding duds. Our MOST popular costumes for rental are the Elvis white jumpsuit and Marilyn Monroe’s white dress from The Seven Year Itch! We’re not exactly sure why, but “Elvis” and “Marilyn” tie the knot more frequently at Viva Las Vegas Weddings than any other couple! And, in case you’re having a multiple-couple wedding vow renewal, or in the event your guests want to dress up, too…we have a LOT of Elvis and Marilyn outfits to choose from!

Italian Couple Renews Wedding Vows in Our Elvis Pink Cadillac Ceremony

Elvis Pink Caddy Wedding
The BEST way to renew your wedding vows after a lucky seven years of marriage!

This summer, Italian travel bloggers Francesca and Roberto visited Las Vegas and took the opportunity to renew their wedding vows with Elvis at Viva Las Vegas Weddings! They told about their experiences at our wedding chapel and in Las Vegas on social media, and we’ve included their video coverage and a translation of their blog, below! The charming couple brought along their young son, then celebrated in a typically American way–at McDonald’s!–right after the ceremony! Have a look:

“>

And, from Francesca and Roberto’s blog:

We are (re) married in Las Vegas today, with Elvis singing “Love me tender” and the church entrance on a Pink Cadillac. A ceremony attended by our baby, who was the most excited of everyone, and who saw us swap our promises and rings again (and then go celebrating in McDonald’s next door!). A dream born when, almost ten years ago, we swore eternal love on the top of the Empire State Building but also a circle to close. And we love the “Giotto” circles … 😉

“Welcome to the fabulous Las Vegas”. It welcomes you so, with these words written on a sign, the largest city in Nevada. And just this sign is probably one of the most photographed things in the city, an icon of a trip to Las Vegas, reproduced everywhere, on shirts, magnets and other thousands of souvenirs that of course can be purchased at The World’s Largest Gift Shop. Las Vegas, the “fabulous city”, but also a place where, in appearance, everything is possible. A “Land of Promises” that invites every year millions of visitors who choose to spend their stay there. And it does not matter if the Las Vegas holiday is in the style of unbridled luxury, sobriety or strolling on the Strip to observe what’s going on around it. There is a place for everyone in Las Vegas, a city where no one is excluded or feeling different: Strenuous players, young people in search of sballo, celibacy or bachelor party, couples in the process of crowning their dream of love or family noisy. Everyone finds a reason to go to Las Vegas and a dream to chase, for a few hours or for a few days.

We too came to town in the wake of a dream, lulled during our first trip to the United States. Las Vegas was the last stop with the home exchange before we started our Coast to Coast in the US in the camper and it was a vacation in the trip, a carefree stage to relax a bit, sure that in the morning we would have been waiting for us Usually blue sky, a swimming pool where we dive and the same hot sun over our heads. The city, incredible to say, has been relaxing for us, because visiting Las Vegas means having everything at your fingertips, at least once you get to the Strip without having to watch the clock to get around the things you see. The city never sleeps and there is time to do all that is to visit the Madame Tussauds Museum, go to the High Roller or sit at Bacchanal for a pantagruelike brunch. Because almost everything in Las Vegas is open “H 24” waiting for tourists to find the right time to go there without hesitation and stress.

Perhaps that’s why a trip to Las Vegas makes you understand what it’s like to take your time. Because if there is a city where we have been until now that embodies this popular way of telling America is just this, where everyone can feel king, at least for a day, with the world at hand (obviously in its version “in scale “) and provided you have a credit card in the wallet! 😉 “A huge Disneyland for adults,” as we defined the city on our arrival, to explain to our fifties how ever, just off the desert, there were castles like those of fairy tales. By the time we did, however, we did not go far. And now we can say, without fear of being denied, that one of the reasons why people organize a vacation in Las Vegas is just to get back kids and spend some days convinced that everything is possible, just as they did during their childhood.

Vegas wedding for Italians
Italian social media writers Francesca and Roberto post their experience with us on Instagram!

Best wishes to Francesca and Roberto for much more happiness in the coming years. Come see us again one day, and thank you for sharing this special adventure with us!

Saturday Night Disco Themed Wedding in Las Vegas!

Disco wedding Vegas
Boogie down the aisle with your Disco-themed wedding or vow renewal ceremony!

For couples who share a fondness for all things disco and 1970s–or even if you just love John Travolta, here’s a unique Las Vegas wedding package that has all the right moves! Our Disco Wedding Package has smoke and theatrical lighting effects, disco sounds, and a white-suited minister with a bit of New York City ’70s swag.

Bring your retro wedding duds, or rent costumes at our onsite costume shop. And, tell your guests to do the same. After all, they’ll be wanting to get up and dance in the aisles right along with you after the vows are said. Some brides and grooms, though, choose to go traditional instead. It’s perfectly fine to just let the minister and the atmosphere create the mood. Be sure to opt for online streaming coverage so friends and family who can’t come to Vegas can still share your disco flashback wedding or wedding vow renewal–live!

Break out your sparkly wedding duds for a Saturday Night fever-pitched wedding!
