When Your Elvis Wedding in Vegas Costs Less Than Your Dress!

Affordable Elvis Wedding
A unique Elvis wedding or wedding vow renewal may be the smallest expense in your honeymoon/elopement budget!

Most engaged couples coming to Vegas to get married by Elvis are surprised at the wide range of packages we offer, with prices to fit ANY budget. If you’re getting hitched on a shoestring, for example, our Elvis Hound Dog package includes flowers, photography, Elvis as minister and even a keepsake stuffed hound dog, all for under $300. Brides sometimes tell us they spent more on their dress or plane ticket!

For just a bit more, you can find Elvis wedding packages that include more songs, limo transportation, and a choice of settings, including Elvis in our 1950s Doo Wop Diner Chapel, or in our romantic outdoor Gazebo or Garden Chapels. At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, you always have the choice of selecting just the options and upgrades you prefer—things like a custom bouquet, live streaming video coverage, or a fabulous entrance into the chapel driven by Elvis in a vintage pink Cadillac! To see all of our Elvis packages, visit our website at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com and look on the top of the page for our Elvis Weddings drop-down menu.

Outdoor Elvis wedding
Elvis can marry you outdoors in our Gazebo or Garden Chapel, too!(Don’t forget those blue suede shoes!)

For those celebrating a special anniversary with a wedding vow renewal in Las Vegas, an Elvis wedding package is just the thing—whether simple and affordable, or whether you go all out with an Elvis Blue Hawaii themed wedding with Pink Cadillac entrance added as an upgrade! We even do surprise vow renewals, either as a surprise to the bride, or as a surprise to the couple from all the children and grandchildren.

Check out what’s included in our most affordable Elvis package, below. You can also visit our website or give us a call at 702-384-0771 for details on how to customize and upgrade for just the right amount of Elvis for YOU!

How to Add Pizazz to a Camelot Themed Wedding in Vegas? Invite ELVIS!

Camelot Wedding Vegas
Merlin performs the ceremony at the Camelot Themed Wedding, as Knights of the Round Table stand in waiting.

Only at Viva Las Vegas Weddings can you choose to marry in a setting reminiscent of Camelot and the days of King Arthur! Merlin the Magician will be your minister, or, another option is to request King Arthur or Lady Guinevere to perform the ceremony for you. Regal music, smoke, costumes and pageantry surround you as you say your vows of holy wedlock. Period dress is always optional, but can be super fun–especially if your guests dress up, too.

This week, one dashing couple surprised onlookers with a surprise appearance of Elvis at the end of their “I Do-eth’s! (As they say, only in Vegas!) This was THE KING no one had been expecting. And imagine how folks watching online reacted to this happy ending to the celebration of the wedding of Matthew and Micah!

A still from our live streaming action—Elvis joins Merlin for a round of “Viva Las Vegas!”

This wasn’t the first time we’ve customized a Camelot Themed Wedding, either. With a little Hollywood-style magic, Merlin can magically turn himself into Dumbledore for a Harry Potter-ish wedding. Below, Merlin is seen with a Snape impersonator, presiding over the vows of Benjamin (dressed as Darth Vader, of course) and his fair Regina. “Dumbledore”oversaw the rites of (holy-smokes) warwedlock, while Snape kept the oddly-garbed Muggle-born guests at wand’s length. The whole affair was rather odd and topsy-turvy. This sort of thing is all in a day’s work (and wizardry) for the staff at Viva Las Vegas Weddings.

The wedding guests were obviously under some sort of spell for the occasion. We’re not sure if they had the better time, or we did. Attendees came dressed as different movie franchise characters, as you can see in the video clip below. Mixing and matching fantasies at your wedding can be half the fun. We’ll customize any of our themed wedding packages to include whatever zaniness you have in mind!

Assorted Muggles Surround Bride Regina and Groom Benjamin

Fans of Game of Thrones? Within our Camelot-style set, choose a famous or infamous character to act as “minister” and we’ll do our best to create your custom wedding. Tears of laughter may be shed, but, no blood, thank goodness. (Unless you book for Halloween, naturally. And…gulp…there will likely be an upcharge for special effects and clean up! 😉 )

Dance in the ’50s Diner with Elvis at Your Viva Las Vegas Wedding!

Elvis 50s Diner Wedding Vegas
No worries, we’ll clear the floor of our Doo Wop Diner Chapel so you can dance during your wedding or wedding vow renewal ceremony!

Did you know that for around $300 you can get married in our fabulous Doo Wop Diner Chapel (it’s like a retro 1950s flashback!) with Elvis as the rockin’ out “minister?” It’s the most affordable and fun way to get married in Las Vegas, with packages that include Elvis singing and performing your ceremony, flowers, photography, your own personal wedding coordinator, and even a free wedding invitation/website. Upgrade with live streaming webcam coverage if you have friends and family back home who can’t attend in person. For a little more, you can easily add extras and customize your package to create the wedding or wedding vow renewal ceremony that really says YOU.

Our Doo Wop Diner is the most unique Elvis wedding venue in Las Vegas for adorable but intimate ceremonies. You can even choose a themed “minister” and characters from your favorite old TV show. Many couples add a “Marilyn” or “Priscilla” impersonator for a bridesmaid. Feel free to use your imagination! If dancing is your thing, request “It’s Now or Never” for a sexy rumba, or “Can’t Help Fallin’ in Love” for a romantic slow dance as Elvis serenades the two of you.

Diner Wedding Chapel Vegas

The Doo Wop diner is filled with ’50s memorabilia, so break out those saddle oxfords and poodle skirts! Want to add a small reception afterward? We do that too! An intimate diner-style reception with hot dogs and sliders is available as an upgrade to your package, or you can add a simple champagne toast with cake.

Check out one of our Doo Wop Diner ceremonies in the video clip below:

A Day in the Life of the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel

On a recent Saturday, the local newspaper, the Las Vegas Review-Journal, hung out with us to document a typical day at Viva Las Vegas Weddings. While we had several elegantly traditional weddings going on that day, it’s easy to see why our wild and wacky Themed Weddings got the photographer’s attention most of the time! It’s pretty amazing just to be a guest witnessing ONE of our themed ceremonies, but a whole day of them–with all the costume and set changes involved– can mean sensory overload for those who aren’t used to it!

Here’s a link to the full article, if you’d like to read the RJ’s take on things and see all the great photos they shot while visiting the chapel: https://www.reviewjournal.com/life/las-vegas-chapel-does-rocky-horror-star-trek-elvis-weddings-video/

If you’d like just a taste of some lesser-known facts included in the story on our chapel, here’s an excerpt from the article, below:

(Ron) DeCar opened the chapel in 1999 after 14 years as lead singer and emcee in “Folies Bergere” at the Tropicana. He says the chapel typically hosts about 300 weddings a month. Its record is 550 in a month. On 7/7/07, 150 couples got hitched, and 230 on 11/11/11.
Just over half of all weddings at Viva Las Vegas are traditional. And the theme weddings? “I think it’s people who are, obviously, more lighthearted and want to do something crazy and don’t want to have a mundane, normal thing,” DeCar says.
But the day isn’t all about fog machines, flashing lights and costumed characters. There are also couples such as Lee McCulloch and Stuart Dootson, who came to Las Vegas from England to get married. They’ve been together 17 years, and while nobody is there to see them marry, the chapel live-streams each ceremony for far-off family and friends.
At 4 p.m. comes an Elvis-themed wedding. And while an Elvis wedding probably never can be devoid of cheesiness — vows include promises “every day of my life to be a hunka hunka burning love” and that “I will never have suspicious minds” — watching the couple end the ceremony by dancing to “It’s Now or Never” is sort of adorable.
With his entertainment industry know-how and hefty contact list, DeCar can concoct just about any sort of ceremony. He once put on a Liberace ceremony that included a song by a Cher impersonator, and another time crafted a ceremony that included Mr. Spock from “Star Trek” teleporting into a Camelot theme.
With lights, music, smoke effects, actors and, most of all, the sense of showmanship that go into every ceremony, “every half hour is a performance,” DeCar says.

Many of the folks who come to us for one of our creative wedding themes are renewing their vows for an anniversary, so don’t be shy about calling to do this, too, if you’re already married! For more information, visit our website or call us at 702-384-0771. www.vivalasvegasweddings.com

Biggest Las Vegas Adventure Yet! Kelly and Ron Get Married by Elvis!

Elvis Wedding Story
They did it! Kelly and Ron tied the knot with The King of Rock ‘n Roll in Las Vegas last night!

On their tenth visit to fabulous Las Vegas, Kelly and Ron of New Hampshire pulled out all the stops and exchanged wedding vows with Elvis! Their 25 enthusiastic guests flew in from several states for this memorably fun occasion, plus an audience of family and friends were watching the live stream back home. Everyone went wild as the couple burst into the chapel in a pink Cadillac driven right down the aisle by The King himself. THAT’S how you get married in Vegas!

Our chapel staff members LOVED seeing Kelly and Ron’s personal story of how they’d decided on a Vegas wedding, posted on their Viva Las Vegas Weddings wedding website page. Once we read it, we were thrilled to be able to share their greatest Vegas adventure yet–The Elvis Pink Caddy Wedding! (By the way, a customizable Viva wedding website page is included in all of our wedding packages, and it’s where couples can post photos, the story of their romance and proposal, plus it doubles as an online invitation and the place the wedding video can be archived for all to see.) Ron and Kelly’s story was especially delightful–it was almost like an ad for all the fantastic things you can do in Las Vegas! Below, we’ve decided to share their story, and, for awhile anyway, the archived video of their absolutely amazing wedding ceremony with Elvis!

Here’s the link to watch all the fun:

And below, in Ron and Kelly’s own words, how they decided to get married by Elvis in Las Vegas:

“You may ask why Vegas? April of 2010, our friends Ed and Sharron invited us to join them for a week at their time share. Neither of us had ever been to Vegas and we gladly accepted. We didn’t know what to expect. It was gaudy, loud, crowded, can be expensive, and just walking down the street can be an adventure. At the time, there were a lot of “card snappers” to contend with (look it up). Guess what? We loved it!!
Since then, we have been back 8 times. Not that gambling can’t be fun (when you win) and there are excellent high end bars and restaurants, but we discovered there is a lot more to do than gamble on the strip. Over the years, we visited the Neon Museum (a well-kept “junk yard” of all the old Neon Signs from early Vegas), The Mob Museum, Zip Lining in Boot Leg Canyon (and Fremont Street), Hoover Dam, Red Rock Canyon, Driving a Jeep through some amazing terrain, Xscream ride on top of the Stratosphere (and I jumped off), Container Park, The Atomic Testing Museum, The High Roller, numerous shows, Ditch Friday (pool party with Robin Thicke), Madame Tussauds and the creme da la crème, a helicopter tour to the Grand Canyon where we landed on a ledge and got out to have lunch.
When we decided to get married (it had been suggested on previous trips), Vegas was the obvious choice, as was being married by Elvis at Viva Las Vegas.”

Wishing Kelly and Ron a lifetime of adventure and happiness ahead! Keep returning to Las Vegas to make more memories, and we hope one day we’ll meet again for a renewal of vows ceremony… We loved sharing your special day. And enjoy every minute of your honeymoon stay in Fabulous Las Vegas!

The happy couple!
