The Darker Side of Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel: The Gothic Wedding Package!

Viva Las Vegas Dracula Weddings
Count your blessings as you say your vows with Dracula and become forever one! (RIP Bill Sewers, aka “Drac”–you are missed in the Gothic mists…)

May the Fourth Weddings in Vegas are almost upon us, and our “Wars” character impersonator ministers will be marrying and renewing vows for fans of the “Dark Side” who want to tie the intergalactic knot on that iconic date. But we also do “darker-side” weddings all year long. Our Intergalactic Themed Weddings are a hit with couples in every season, and the same is true for our VERY popular Gothic Themed Wedding. The package includes flowers (black, of course), haunting music and fog in a tombstone-bedecked cemetery, photography and video, plus round-trip limousine transportation. Dracula, the Grim Reaper, Elvira or Zombie Elvis marry you in a chilling ceremony that’s to die for! The sinister minister of your choice will step out of a coffin to perform your wedding ceremony by eerie candlelight. Add online streaming for those who can’t come to the graveyard in person…

Gothic Wedding Vegas
Gothic Weddings feature a Grim Reaper minister, but you can substitute Dracula, Zombie Elvis, Elvira, or…? to marry you in Goth style!

Don’t forget that costumes are practically de-rigueur for these dark-sided affairs…or at least consider a black bridal gown and veil. If you want to go full-on theatrical, fans of Rocky Horror might check out our “Rocky’s Horror” Themed Wedding, complete with live (mostly) musical production numbers. We’ll customize any of our packages to suit your particular tastes, too. To see all of our themed wedding packages, dark or otherwise, visit us at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com

Halloween is just six months away, and many folks who have a bit of the “Goth” in them plan a wedding for that night. Book early! It’s our busiest and darkest wedding night of the year! To view all of our Halloween 2017 Specials, visit: http://www.vivalasvegasweddings.com/las-vegas-wedding-packages/holidays-special-events/halloween
Be forewarned Goth grooms–grab your ghoul, and plan your dark and deeply meaningful wedding night…before it’s too late! We’ve attached a video sample of one of our frightful Halloween-style weddings. Hope to see YOU on the darkest night of the year. Or, whenever!

Dia de los Muertos Weddings at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel

Elvis weddings in Spanish
Halloween and Dia de los Muertos weddings–even our Little Chapel is dressed up for both occasions!

After a thrilling, haunted Halloween weekend at Viva Las Vegas Weddings, today we celebrate Dia de los Muertos with continuing, frightfully-fun weddings! We’re happy to have an excuse to keep the decorations up an extra day or two.

Did you know our Elvis’s (also known as “Elvi” around here) all can perform your Elvis or Zombie Elvis wedding in Spanish? When you book your wedding, simply request a Spanish ceremony, either by Elvis or one of our “regular” ministers. In fact, almost any of our Themed weddings can be performed in Spanish. Just let us know. With notice, we are able to provide ministers for French or German ceremonies as well. Other languages? We’ll do our best to accommodate your needs.

Here comes the Bride of Frankenstein! Monstrously fun weddings continue into November for Dia de los Muertos!

While the rest of the year we have a more traditional decor in our several indoor and outdoor chapels, we’ll still bring out the tombstones, fog, and cemetery gates for a Gothic or Graveyard Wedding with the Grim Reaper or Dracula any time of year! Yep, even Valentine’s Day… Viva Las Vegas!

Best Costume Ideas for Family-Style Themed Weddings

IMAG1002

Whether you’re renewing your wedding vows in Las Vegas with your children in attendance or are getting married and have children already, you may want to include the kids in your special day by choosing a fun themed wedding. That way, everyone can dress up and play a part in the ceremony.

First off, you’ll want to choose your theme from the drop down menu on our homepage at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com. Once you’re decided, costume ideas and characters are a no-brainer. If you’re not quite sure what themed wedding to choose, here are some photos and ideas that have been popular at the chapel over the years. Don’t think costumed weddings are just for Halloween time! At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, we dress up every day!

Below is a family participating in one of our Intergalactic Themed Weddings, wearing the costumes of their favorite characters. For this wedding, you can choose a Darth Vader minister, or, if you’re not exactly from the universe with the Dark Side, a “Captain Quirk” or Starfleet Vulcan minister makes a great substitute. Bring your own costumes, or check with our friendly staff to see if our onsite costume rental shop has what you need!

Come as you are, or come costumed to go with your themed wedding!

If your family hails from Scotland, Germany, Japan, or another country with colorful national garb, consider dressing in the style of your ancestors. We can even add appropriate music to your ceremony. Don’t forget, we’re happy to customize any aspect of your wedding. The family below had a fun and memorable wedding day in their national dress! Lots of grooms wear kilts, even if it’s an Elvis Wedding!

Swiss/German Wedding in Vegas
Dress in the customary garb of your ancestors for a unique family wedding!

For our scary Gothic or Graveyard weddings, dress as a family of vampires, zombies, or THE Addams Family. For these ceremonies, you can choose to be wed by Dracula, Zombie Elvis, Elvira, or the Grim Reaper. Or…? We’re up for anything. Your family and guests will love dressing up for this haunting wedding ceremony, complete with candlelight, fog, and creepy cemetery set and music.

Pirate weddings look GREAT with fancy pirate duds all around! Kids can dress as Peter Pan, Tinkerbell…let your imagination go crazy here. Put Uncle Joe in an alligator suit…OR…? Just ask, you can add Godzilla as a best man. VERY few people have Godzilla in their wedding pictures. (It HAS been done before at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel!)

Sometimes your “kids” are all adults. In that case, there are always great weddings featuring styles from past decades…Choose your favorite era…We’ve done everything from Louis XIV to Gatsby to 1950s-80s! We can arrange for the right music to set the tone, and we’ll make sure the minister matches whatever period your wedding will be set in!

Hippie wedding Las Vegas
Your guests will love dressing up for your 60’s or 70’s wedding, too!

Halloween Weekend Wedding Planning at Viva Las Vegas Weddings!

Addams Family Wedding Vegas
Get married by Gomez Addams, or BE Gomez Addams at your Viva Las Vegas Wedding!

Halloween weddings in Las Vegas this year will be stretched out over a full weekend! Halloween night falls on a Monday, so we’ll also be doing Halloween-themed weddings the whole weekend before!

To get your preferred time and package, now’s the time to book ahead!

Our Main Chapel will be decked out like a cemetery and filled with fog and candlelight. The Garden and Gazebo outdoor chapels will be decorated in scary fashion, as well as our blood-red-and-black Little Chapel for intimate weddings in the shadow of a cobweb-laden coffin. Check out all of our Gothic and Graveyard wedding packages on the scroll-down Themed Weddings menu at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com Some favorites are featured here. And…like the Morticia and Gomez wedding above, if it’s not on our menu, don’t be scared to ask us! We do custom weddings, too!

Zombie Elvis Wedding
Zombie Elvis emerges from a coffin and marries the two of you…and sings a few songs….

Zombie Elvis can marry you in any of our chapels, including the outdoor ones! We’ve also got Dracula, Elvira, the Grim Reaper, and Edward of Twilight fame as horrifyingly fun “ministers.” You and your guests will want to dress up, too, to complete your gruesome theme. It IS, after all, Halloween! (Traveling light? We rent costumes!)

Grim Reaper Wedding
Choose from Dracula OR the Grim Reaper for your Gothic or Graveyard Wedding Package!

Our Gothic packages include limo transportation, flowers (we CAN do black roses!), photography and videography, and full-service wedding coordination. You can have your frightening vow exchange streamed live to all corners of the planet, if friends and family are stuck back home trick-or-treating…

Rocky Horror wedding
Your Rocky’s Horror musical wedding features songs performed LIVE!

Our most elaborate spoof, the Rocky’s Horror Wedding, includes a full cast of singing and Time-Warping characters. It’s a full-on production with live performances and a sweet transvestite minister, from Transylvania, of course. Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel is the only place you can upgrade your wedding with Cirque du Soleil-style flying vampires to perform high above you in the chapel’s rafters. Give us a call at 702-384-0771 to customize your Halloween/October wedding or wedding vow renewal. We guarantee it will be a ceremony you and your guests will never forget!
