Love in a Limo–Transportation for YOUR Viva Las Vegas Wedding

Vegas Wedding Limos
Wedding packages that include limo service are a memorable way to celebrate your special day!

You may not know that all of our Themed Weddings– and many of our other Viva Las Vegas Wedding Packages– include round-trip limousine transportation from your Strip or Downtown Hotel. It’s a wonderful way to enjoy the dazzling lights of Las Vegas either coming or going, if you schedule an evening wedding with us. In the daytime, you’ll be able to “scout out” the hotels and attractions along the way that you might want to take in during your honeymoon stay. Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel is located between Sahara Avenue, at the north end of the Strip’s mega-resort corridor, and fabulous Downtown Las Vegas. (Note: If your wedding package includes limo service, you’ll want to remember to tip your driver. The suggested gratuity for this is $30, likely less than cab fare, which is not nearly as luxurious. After all, it’s your wedding day!) 🙂

We also offer off-property weddings that include limousine service. Our Beautiful Red Rock Wedding takes you out into the gorgeous red canyons a short drive from the city. You’ll have a view of all of Las Vegas as you return! For more information on this spectacularly scenic wedding, click here: http://www.vivalasvegasweddings.com/las-vegas-wedding-packages/destination-weddings/the-red-rock-wedding

And, our helicopter weddings will also include limo service to the helipad! More details on our scenic helicopter weddings over the lights of Las Vegas can be found under “Destination Weddings” on our website at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com

Couples who want to add a Photo Tour of Las Vegas as an upgrade to their wedding package will enjoy limo transportation to multiple picturesque sites along with one of our friendly professional photographers. We can even arrange for you to marry IN the limo or at a special site along the way.

We also offer weddings with Elvis AT the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign. Elvis meets your limo there, along with your photographer, who will take still pictures and video and bring your wedding flowers in tow. Learn more about this unique wedding package here: www.vivalasvegasweddings.com/las-vegas-wedding-packages/destination-weddings/las-vegas-sign-wedding-destination

Vegas Wedding Transportation
Just the two of you, or up to six members of your wedding party can ride along!

Give us a call to make arrangements for the wedding of your dreams, including luxury limo service! Lots of guests? You can even add a limo or two to get you all to the chapel on time. Viva Las Vegas Weddings, 702-384-0771

Scenic Outdoor Weddings Near Las Vegas –Perfect in Fall!

Red Rock Canyon Wedding Vegas
Get married against a gorgeous Red Rock Canyon backdrop!

Fall is in the air, and that means outdoor Las Vegas weddings are picking up, big time! Temperatures are gradually becoming ideal for daytime weddings in picturesque wedding landscapes surrounding Vegas. At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, you can book a unique outdoor wedding just minutes outside Las Vegas in the stunning Red Rock Canyon. You’ll travel there by limousine from your Las Vegas hotel, meeting your minister, photographer/videographer, and receiving your flowers and all the extras right at the site.

Get Married at Vegas Sign
The iconic Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign and the picturesque Strip serve as background for your Viva Las Vegas wedding!

You won’t travel far, though, to be married in front of the classic “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign, another of our destination wedding options. The sign is set on a landscaped median right on the Las Vegas Strip. Elvis marries you right on the spot, and your photographer arrives with flowers to meet your limousine, parked right there. Best of all, the glamorous hotels on Las Vegas Boulevard are right behind you, too, which can be even more striking at night when the neon lights come on! Not big on Elvis? Our Las Vegas Sign Wedding can be performed by a traditional minister, too.

Even more spectacular by night, Elvis marries you with the Strip’s neon landscape in the background!

Christmas Wedding in July? No, But Now’s the Time to Book Your Holiday Wedding in Las Vegas!

Santa and Elvis Wedding in Vegas
Choose Elvis as your “minister” or have Santa himself perform your wedding or wedding vow renewal ceremony!

We don’t really do Christmas in July here at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, but it IS time to start planning your holiday wedding, if December suits your matrimonial schedule. Did you know that New Year’s Eve is second only to Valentine’s Day for a romantic Vegas wedding? Holiday time in general–especially Christmas Eve–makes for stunning traditional weddings that often feature red and white gowns, bouquets, bowties– accented with silver and gold, of course!

If you’re up for a more fun-filled holiday wedding, choose any of our Elvis Wedding Packages and add Santa and Mrs. Claus as backup dancers! They’ll appear in a cloud of fog behind our gold curtain as Elvis sings, “Santa Bring My Baby Back to Me.” The whole effect makes an awesome holiday surprise for your guests, especially anyone back home watching your ceremony streamed live online!

Christmas Santa Wedding Vegas
Surprise your friends and family with Santa and the Mrs. at your holiday time Elvis wedding in Vegas!

Not Elvis fans? You can opt to have Santa Claus himself perform your ceremony with holiday music in the background. (Maybe “Christmas Bride.” Perfect!) Just choose any of our Traditional Wedding packages and ask your friendly Viva Las Vegas wedding planner to substitute Santa as minister. Santa (and Mrs. Claus, too) can be added to any of our other Themed Weddings, too. Really adventurous couples will get a thrill out of mixing Darth Vader and Santa, the Bluez Brothers and Santa, or even Liberace and Santa. We can customize any aspect of your wedding you can imagine!

If you’re celebrating an anniversary in December and are planning a trip to Vegas, this is the lighthearted wedding vow renewal ceremony for you. Best of all, room rates in Las Vegas are at their lowest in December. Up until New Year’s, the crowds are a lot lighter in Las Vegas, too. Give us a call with questions and any assistance you may need in planning and booking a Viva Las Vegas Wedding for the holidays! 702-384-0771 Or visit us online at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com We’ll keep the mistletoe in the cooler until then!

So You Want to Elope to Las Vegas? Pointers for a Non-Traditionally Traditional Wedding

Traditional Wedding in vegas
Even if it’s just the two of you, you can have the traditional wedding of your dreams!

Believe it or not, nearly half of our Viva Las Vegas Weddings ceremonies are full-on, traditional style weddings with most of the lovely bells and whistles of a church wedding back home. Some are very intimate affairs with just the couple, whether they’re eloping in secret or just wanting something personal. But–in case YOUR cozy wedding-for-two turns into a big one once everyone finds out you’re tying the knot in Vegas–our Main Chapel can comfortably seat nearly 100 guests. (It’s amazing how many friends and family members don’t mind a trip to Las Vegas for your wedding day!)

Whether you’re eloping to Vegas or it’s simply your wedding destination of choice, here are a few traditions you may (or may not) want to keep for your Viva Las Vegas Wedding. First–the ring! Did you know that about 70% of brides wear a traditional diamond ring on their left hand? Others opt for a sapphire, representing a happy and harmonious union, or an aquamarine stone that bodes for a long and prosperous union. We’ve also seen tattoos in place of precious metal rings, and even lollipop rings– when couples choose not to exchange “real” rings at all. (Your “traditional” style wedding can include only the elements that have meaning for YOU.) Your personal wedding coordinator will ask ahead of time if you’ll be exchanging rings. If not, the minister will work around this seamlessly.

A bit of Las Vegas trivia here! Priscilla Presley’s engagement ring was 3 1/2 carats! Your rings–and the size or presence of their stones– are a very personal choice, but just be sure to bring them to the chapel! (One bride lost her ring and the ceremony had to be performed without it. On the way back to her hotel in the limousine, the bride discovered the ring had gone down the front of her dress and lodged in her bra!)

Next–the dress! Wondering what to wear to your traditional Vegas wedding? Many brides still choose to wear white, a trend said to have been started by Queen Victoria in the mid-19th century. But in Las Vegas, that white is often in the form of a summery off-the-shoulder dress, or something a bit sassier. (We’ve even seen white bikinis for our clearly non-traditional Beach Party Themed Wedding!) But, in Las Vegas, where many weddings are distinctly different, brides wear almost any style or color down the aisle–even jeans, for a casual yet still “traditional” wedding.

Even in the most kicked-back of Viva Las Vegas Weddings, where jeans and even shorts are worn, brides often keep the veil, a traditional started in ancient Greece and believe to have protected brides from evil spirits.(You wouldn’t want that!) Brides in jeans (or bikinis) look fun and fabulous in a veil, and we even rent them here at the chapel. For more formal weddings, we also rent tuxes right on the premises!

At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, you also have the option of adding a traditional reception afterward, from a simple cake and champagne toast to elegant dining and dancing with live music at our adjacent Ron Decar’s Event Center. If you’re eloping and just want wedding cake for two to take back to your hotel, we do that, too, and we’ll pack it to-go!

Our Elvis and Themed Weddings can include theatrical lights, smoke, powerful themed music, sets, costumes, and practically all the magic of a Hollywood production!

(We also do stately and romantic Traditional Weddings, but if you want smoke and special effects, you can always add them on!)

Last week we did a custom “Game of Thrones” style wedding, seen here. Lyndsay and Chris tied the knot amidst fog and dark pageantry–with a lot of laughter thrown in for good measure. If you don’t see a wedding package of your big screen dreams on our website (www.vivalasvegasweddings.com) feel free to let us know what you have in mind. We’ve done hundreds of customized weddings based on Hollywood movies, favorite TV shows, and even on fictional book characters.

Lyndsay and Chris with… “Tyrion Lannister?”

Examples of weddings we have done in the past based on the silver or the small screen include: The Princess Bride, Harry Potter, Back to the Future (complete with DeLorean entrance!), The Addams Family, Bonnie and Clyde, The Great Gatsby, Grease, The Wizard of Oz, Austin Powers, Stars Trek and Wars, The Pink Panther (we call it the “Pink Diamond” Wedding), and many, many others.

Plus…we do Elvis Weddings! (And we’ve seen our share of Elvis appearances when “Darth Vader” is the minister, too. Fusion weddings are “a thing” now!)

Your movie-themed wedding will include themed music, lights and smoke, set and props, character minister, flowers, photography and video, plus round trip limousine service from your Strip or Downtown hotel. Upgrade with live streaming internet coverage so friends and family back home can make popcorn and watch from the couch!
