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 We’ll keep the mistletoe in the cooler until then!

Las Vegas Wedding Dates
Pick the most memorable day of the year for your 2016 Viva Las Vegas Wedding!

Viva Las Vegas Weddings will soon be celebrating the last weddings of 2015, with an eye to a bright New Year of fantastic weddings ahead! If you’re planning to elope to Vegas, renew your vows in a unique way, or even to have an exquisitely simple traditional wedding ceremony, now’s the time to choose the most memorable wedding date for you.

A New Year’s Eve wedding is a wonderful way to start 2016, of course, and this holiday is hands-down the most romantic evening for weddings EVER. Who gets to view fireworks high above The Strip after their wedding vows are exchanged? But then, here are some other great suggestions to consider, if you need a little more time to plan ahead:

1. How about 1/6/16? Gotta love those repeating digits! It falls midweek, but that’s when you can take great advantage of fewer crowds and great deals on luxury rooms in Las Vegas’s swankiest hotels.

2. Then there’s 1/16/16, a Saturday! Book early, this day will go quickly on our Viva Las Vegas Wedding schedule because it falls on a weekend.

3. 6/16/16 makes a wonderful date for June brides! Or 6/1/16 is a cleverly bookend-ish June wedding day for your traditional or Elvis wedding. Either way you go.

4. Valentine’s Day, our most popular day for Las Vegas weddings, falls on a Sunday. But we’re sure the Saturday before will be very busy, too, with incredible Vegas honeymoon plans in the works for the day of love to follow!

5. Okay, if you want to celebrate fewer anniversaries, you COULD go for Leap Day, February 29th… But to put a positive spin on it, that’s a truly UNIQUE wedding day, falling on a Monday. (Some couples prefer the weekday weddings. Sometimes they prefer the idea of guests watching the live streaming feed of the ceremony from all over the country, rather than in person.) Die-hard friends and family will show up in Las Vegas any day of the week!

Best wishes to all of our happy couples wed here in 2015! We are looking forward to more fun, joyful tears, and glorious Viva Las Vegas weddings in 2016! To book yours, visit us at:

New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day weddings in Las Vegas are THE most exciting way to get married.

It’s the most sexy and romantic night of the year in Vegas, and the best way to start a new year and a new life together.

Elvis New Year's weddings
Get married by Elvis on New Year’s at Viva Las Vegas Wedding chapels!

Our Elvis and traditional New Year’s Eve wedding specials start at just $225, including all the basics. You can add-on whatever extras will make your day perfect, or opt for an all-inclusive package or themed wedding with limousine transportation to and from your hotel. (Ask our knowledgeable staff about Strip closures and how to get to the chapel on side streets to avoid traffic if you’re driving here on your own. Limo service may be limited during evening hours.) Favorite themed weddings for New Year’s Eve are the James Bond themed wedding, Gangster themed wedding, or one of our Rock ‘n Roll superstar impersonator weddings. That way, you and your guests can dress to the nines and go straight into clubbing and New Year’s revelry.

Outdoor Garden or Gazebo weddings are popular on New Year’s, for their twinkling white lights and aura of magic by night, and their nostalgic romance by day. You can also choose our 50’s Doo Wop Diner chapel, or our gorgeous Main Chapel for any Elvis, traditional or themed wedding package.

Winter Wedding Ideas at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel

Winter Las Vegas Weddings
Red dress and white lilies, or white dress and cascading red roses, December and January weddings are classic and gorgeous!

Planning a winter wedding in Las Vegas? In December and January, hotel rates are way down (except for New Year’s Eve, of course!) and temperatures are generally mild–perfect for a winter wedding. Traditional brides know their wedding photos will be stunning with winter colors of red and white. Our Main Chapel is generally decorated in red poinsettias for the season, too. Sunny, mild afternoons often allow for outdoor gazebo or garden weddings in winter months, and these venues are fairly well sheltered from the elements.

Classic red, white and black make perfect winter wedding colors!

Proposing on New Year’s Eve? Don’t Let This Happen To You!

New Year's Wedding in Las Vegas
The last night of the year can be the most exciting time to marry or propose.

At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, we always look forward to our exciting New Year’s Eve wedding ceremonies. The Strip is closed down just after dark, so the entire boulevard can fill up with revelers awaiting the spectacular midnight fireworks show. This plays havoc with our limo service, so couples marrying in the evening have to make it to our chapel on their own. It’s well worth it, though. Nothing beats the excitement of a wedding on the last night of the year, and it’s an incredible way to begin a new year as man and wife!

New Year’s Eve is also a thrilling time to stage a marriage proposal. However, things can get a little out of control if the unsuspecting bride has already been into the bubbly before her man gets down on his knee at midnight. Check out one example, below. The happy lady ends up doing a happy dance on the couch. Don’t expect her to contain her feelings once she’s had a few pre-midnight toasts!

Wishing everyone love and much happiness in the year ahead… And don’t pop too many corks before popping the question, guys. 🙂
