Visit Our New “Mini Bar” at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel!

Vegas Chapel Bar
Little Elvis shows off our new “mini bar” in the lobby of our Main Chapel.

What’s the latest addition to the lobby of our world-famous Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel? We now offer a wide selection of light beverages, including beer and wine. Your guests can enjoy a sip or two while waiting for the couple to have their brief “rehearsal” in the chapel. It’s also a “spirited” way for couples to celebrate and take the edge off any pre-wedding jitters. For brides and grooms who are eloping, you can choose to toast your future before the vows are said in our Main Chapel or in our Garden or Gazebo Chapels, just outside.

"Little Sinatra" Wedding Reception
Little Sinatra can host your wedding reception in any of our fabulous reception halls, right onsite!

We also offer a hosted bar either before or after your ceremony. You and your guests can share drinks and mingle in a more private setting, either in one of our intimate reception rooms or at our spacious and spectacular Event Center bar. For a truly unique and fun celebration, add a themed character to your hosted bar! You can choose a Mini Elvis Impersonator, a Mini Bar “Man”, Little Sinatra, or “Tyrion Lanister” as your bartender. Contact a wedding planner to discuss how to make your wedding day unforgettable and full of surprises.

Dancing During Your Viva Las Vegas Wedding

Las Vegas Wedding Marquee Lights
Taking a dip beneath our marquee, where your names will be up in lights on the Strip after your wedding ceremony!

So maybe you’re coming to Las Vegas to elope, to renew wedding vows, or to have a full-on Traditional Wedding that’s both affordable and unforgettable. In any case, you may want to dance during your ceremony, to make it truly your own, and truly romantic. (And, if you’re not having a reception afterward, you’ll still get to do your “First Dance!) For couples who want to add a reception with us, you can dance there, too, with dance floor and DJ!

If you’re having an Elvis wedding, you have the opportunity to slow dance to whatever songs are included in your package. This may be “Love Me Tender” or “Can’t Help Fallin’ in Love” and/or “It’s Now or Never.” Many couples simply sway in each others arms as Elvis serenades them. (Don’t worry, if you don’t want to dance, just hold each other’s hands and enjoy the performance!) But if you’d like to spice things up a bit and wow your guests (either the in-person ones, or those who may be watching the ceremony streamed live online), consider learning a couple of impressive but simple moves! See the GREAT instructional video, below:

After a few minutes of practice, you’ll be set for the big day!

If you’re having a Traditional Wedding–no Elvis–you can still choose to do a “First Dance” during your ceremony, and you can even select your own music. Just let our staffers know what you have in mind when you call to book your wedding, and they’ll explain all the details. They may ask you to bring your own CD, or they can arrange to have our crew cue it up for you via iTunes.

Did you know you can add a LIVE singer to perform your wedding song? We have several professional vocalists on hand–that is, besides Elvis, Tom Jones, Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Prince, Jim Morrison…–who can sing just for you. Choose a lovely soprano or handsome baritone or tenor to perform in stunning formal wear as you say your vows and move as one. Upgrade prices begin at $150, which is a bargain when you consider how perfectly it customizes your wedding and amazes your guests. Imagine the two of you slow-dancing by candlelight to your favorite romantic ballad. You can even add theatrical fog! We will customize your dance and pull out all the stops, at your request.

For more information on adding a wedding dance or a song of your choice, call our friendly wedding planners at 702-384-0771, or chat with us online at

Gazebo Wedding Vegas
Dance during your wedding ceremony either in our Main Chapel or our Outdoor Gazebo or Garden Chapels!

Show Us Your Viva Las Vegas Wedding Shoes!

Las Vegas Wedding Shoes

If you’re getting married in Las Vegas, there are no holds barred on what’s acceptable for footwear at your wedding—especially one with Elvis. And, our 1950s Doo Wop Diner Chapel is the perfect place to show off your most outrageous Rockabilly-style shoes. In our lavish Main Chapel, we’ve even seen a few traditional brides in full length white gowns sporting a few surprises when it comes to wedding kicks! We thought we’d share a few great bridal shoe fashions from past Viva Las Vegas Weddings here on our blog.

White Wedding in Vegas

For a wedding in white, these fancy shoes fit the bill. They’re stylish, yet still peep-toe traditional. If you’re having an elegant, stately ceremony with us, we’d like to share a bit of wedding day advice about shoes. Be sure to practice walking in your wedding heels on plush carpet BEFORE THE BIG DAY. If you’ll be wearing stilettos or high platforms, be aware that they tend to stick a bit on carpet, and we’ve seen a bride or two stumble…SO…practice taking small deliberate steps, daintily picking up your feet.

50s Diner Wedding Shoes

These turquoise shoes, above, looked perfect in our Doo Wop Diner Chapel, with its turquoise, white and black color pallet. We’re not sure if the bride planned it that way, but what stunning photos they had! We’ve never seen a better color-coordinated wedding!

Unique Wedding Shoes

Elvis weddings and themed weddings almost scream for unique footwear that goes with the whimsical theme. Consider going all-out on the stockings, too. For Elvis weddings, and our 60s-era weddings, fishnets are the thing! Having Marilyn pop in to sing and do the honors of your vows? Seamed hosiery, still widely available online, make for that fab and flawless touch.

Vegas Wedding Bride Shoes

These blooming pumps, above, are feminine and filled with that sense of romance…just right for an outdoor wedding in our Gazebo or Garden Chapel. Even better? Ask to upgrade your ceremony with a rose-petal-filled, candlelit pathway down the aisle!

Vegas Wedding Couple Shoes

These his-and-hers wedding shoes are our favorites. Comfortable, and they say it all! If you have a close-up shot of YOUR fabulous Las Vegas wedding shoes, please post in the comments section so we can all share and drool. Or, see more incredible wedding shoes in the photos section of our Facebook page! See us on Facebook at: The Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, and maybe give us a like while you’re visiting! ­čÖé
