NFR Rodeo Coming to Vegas! How ’bout a Country-Western Wedding or Vow Renewal?

Western Wedding Vegas
Here’s the perfect wedding for Country Western fans, rodeo fans, or fans of the sweet and simple!

Viva Las Vegas Weddings will be going COUNTRY as the National Finals Rodeo boot scoots into town in early December. Couples can book weddings or wedding vow renewals at our wedding hitchin’ post and be serenaded live by a singin’ cowboy minister! This Country-Western-style wedding in Vegas will knock your boots off and includes all the fixin’s—flowers, photography, round-trip limousine from your hotel, plus a western setting with evening mist, rustic lanterns and theatrical lights.

Check out the details on our Western Themed Wedding on our website at http://www.vivalasvegasweddings.com/las-vegas-wedding-packages/themed-weddings/western-themed-wedding From there you can choose any character minister for your ceremony–cranky coal miner, dashing cowboy, or even a Johnny Cash impersonator to do the honors and sing one of his famous hits. Just let us know what you’re hankering for in your country-style wedding ceremony.

Our Western-themed wedding package includes one country song to be performed live during the unity candle lighting. Popular choices are: “I Cross My Heart,” “I Swear,” or “Keeper of the Stars.” (Johnny Cash impersonator weddings can choose a Johnny Cash favorite instead!) There won’t be a dry eye in the chapel once the music starts. Some couples prefer to bring their own music on a CD. That’s fine, too. Please tell us ahead of time so we can have it all set up for you.

In addition, your favorite country ballad can be played as the bride strolls down the aisle. For the recessional, you consider the Electric Slide or a Boot Scootin’ Boogie with friends and family. Just like at your favorite country bar, we’ll take requests. You can have your ceremony streamed live online for the folks back home, too, in case they’re not in town for the event.

Country Vegas Wedding
Slow dancing during a romantic vow renewal ceremony—country style!

Our hitchin’ post and Western props set the stage for your wedding, so you’ll fit right in wearing your best Western duds and cowboys hats—some brides choose to don a white, veiled cowgirl hat and white boots. For more information on this or any of our themed, traditional or Elvis weddings, call us at 702-384-0771 or check our website at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com See ya back at the ranch, before you ride into the sunset as bride and groom or “podners” united in marriage.

We’ve had Flying (Cirque du Soleil-style) vampires, wicked witches, Brides of Frankenstein and even the Devil as monsters of ceremonies, tying the knot for wedding couples who dare! Most brides and grooms come in costumes, and generally the guests do, too. From noon to midnight, the chapel is a parade of eye-popping costumes every Halloween!

The Viva Las Vegas Chapel is dressed up as a cemetery each Halloween, with theatrical fog and lights, candlelight, gloomy organ music, cobwebs, tombstones, and your officiant most often emerges from a coffin…Dracula? Grim Reaper? Elvira? We’ve featured them all!

We’ll also be doing our full-on Rocky’s Horror Themed Wedding for Halloween, complete with live musical numbers and your guests joining in for the Time Warp after the vow exchange! (Available year ’round, of course!)

Frank Sinatra Impersonator Wedding in Vegas: A Smooth, Iconic Review from TripAdvisor!

Sinatra Wedding Vegas
Dance to romantic Sinatra songs during your wedding or wedding vow renewal ceremony!

We were thrilled recently when we came across this glowing review on TripAdvisor about our Frank Sinatra Impersonator Themed Wedding! (It’s a variation of our Tom Jones impersonator wedding, the Wassup Pussycat Package, see at: http://www.vivalasvegasweddings.com/las-vegas-wedding-packages/themed-weddings/wassup-pussycat-wedding )

You can actually substitute any iconic singer impersonator for this uniquely Las Vegas wedding package! The same is true for our Rock ‘n Roll Themed Weddings, where you can choose any legendary rock singer as your “minister.” Not on the website? We’ll do our best to use our Vegas entertainment connections to get your requested impersonator to perform and help you tie the knot or renew your vows.

Below we are sharing this lovely review of a couple who recently renewed their wedding vows with us for a special anniversary. We hope it will give you the best insight of all into what to expect on your own big day. We certainly hope to live up to this for ALL of our Viva Las Vegas Weddings!

Marvellous Viva Las Vegas
My Wife and I often spoke about how much fun it would be to renew our wedding vows. And what better place to do it than the wedding capitol of the world, Las Vegas. Our daughters wedding was just the push we needed to turn a dream into reality and so we booked a short break to Las Vegas to coincide with our wedding anniversary in late September. I researched the wedding chapels that are available in Las Vegas. They all look good, but didn’t offer that “pazaaz” and real Las Vegas feel I was looking for. Then I found the Viva Las Vegas wedding site, and after a few minutes looking at the options and themes available I knew that this was the place we were looking for. It offered everything we wanted. A ceremony with all the bright lights, energy and offbeat over the top service we were looking for. The people who work for the chapel have been superb throughout and arranged the ceremony we wanted, with a Frank Sinatra impersonator performing the service where he sang two classic Frank songs. Golden oldies from the great days of big band music. I can honestly say that it was a fantastic ceremony and one we will remember and cherish for ever. It truly topped a fantastic holiday in Vegas. Everything ran super smoothly from the original booking, all the way through to the ceremony itself. All the staff were superb, from the friendly limo driver to the girls on the front desk, the wedding coordinator and the photographer who took some cracking photos’ during the service that we are absolutely delighted with. We had an extra camera shoot at the iconic Vegas sign after, and cant wait to see these pictures once they come through. Of course the best of the lot was the Frank Sinatra Impersonator. He was simply fantastic. He was very friendly, a quite brilliant singer and appeared to enjoy it as much as we did. We also took up the live-streaming option so that our friends and family could watch from all over the world on their computers. We had friends in China, extended family in Australia, and our own family, friends and work colleagues at home in England who all tuned in and they all said the coverage was excellent. The pictures were crisp, colourful and the sound was spot on.
These guys at Viva Las Vegas really are superb.
Thanks “Frank” and thank you Viva Las Vegas.

Theatrical fog and lights make it your own private concert experience!

Thank YOU two for this great review. You made us blush and feel very proud– and determined to create the same experiences for everyone who marries or renews wedding vows at Viva Las Vegas Weddings. Best wishes for your continued happiness together!

FREE Showgirl “Bridesmaid” with Every Elvis Wedding on “The King’s” Birthday– 1/8/18!

1/8/18 Elvis Wedding Special
Our one-day-only 1/8/18 Elvis Wedding Special!

Planning to get married in Las Vegas in the New Year? Here’s a blog-only Elvis Wedding Special, good only on Elvis’s birthday, 1/8/18! We’re celebrating those repeating wedding date digits AND The King’s special day by upgrading any Elvis Wedding at Viva Las Vegas Weddings with a free and glamorous showgirl bridesmaid! Just mention you saw this special on the blog when you book your Elvis wedding for Monday, January 8th.

Choose an indoor Main Chapel ceremony, a Doo Wop Diner retro 1950s chapel wedding, or an Outdoor Gazebo or Garden wedding featuring Elvis. Packages begin at just under $300, and on this day only, will INCLUDE a free showgirl. The showgirl can precede the bride down the aisle, walk the groom down the aisle while Elvis escorts the bride, or simply add a bit of Vegas glitz to any Elvis Pink Cadillac wedding entrance as Elvis drives you right INTO the chapel and down the aisle. The showgirl and Elvis will make sure there’s a whole lotta shaking going on as they dance along with whatever songs you’ve included in your ceremony.

If you’re already married, now’s a great time to celebrate an anniversary with an iconic Elvis wedding vow renewal in Las Vegas. This Monday date means you’ll enjoy weekday room rates and fewer crowds in post-holidays Las Vegas!

Remember we rent costumes for the occasion in our onsite Costume Shop, so if you bring any guests along, you can all dress up as zany characters, or as extra Elvi. Or, bring your own costumes. We’ve seen lots of Marilyn’s, Priscilla’s, and a host of folks dressed up as Hollywood and music legends in our fun and fabulous Elvis weddings. Of course, traditional bridal wear is always fine, too!

For more information on this blog-only Elvis’s Birthday Special, give us a call at 702-384-0771. You’ll need to book by phone rather than online to take advantage of your free showgirl bridesmaid!

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!

Same sex weddings Vegas
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!
