Viva Las Vegas’s Gothic Wedding Package– with Elvira, Mistress of the Dark!

Elvira Themed Wedding Vegas
Order up a Gothic Wedding Package and ask for Elvira as your minister! Perfect for Halloween, or any other scary wedding date! (They’re all kinda scary…in a good way!)

Yes. Viva friends, October is here, the month of Halloween Weddings AND, this year, Friday the 13th weddings! It’s not too late to book your wedding date for October, although time slots for October 31st are growing scary-scarce! Book soon! Or, not to worry, we do “Halloween” all year long at Viva Las Vegas Weddings!

Generally our Gothic Themed Wedding includes either the Grim Reaper or Dracula emerging from a coffin to perform your marriage rites. But, by special request, you can also have Elvira Mistress of the Dark as your macabre minister! (If you remember the ’80s, this one’s for you!) Zombie fans, there’s always Zombie Elvis to perform your vows and serenade you. You can choose your spooky minister character at the time of your booking.

Also, feel free to add frightful upgrades, including flying Cirque du Soleil-style vampires, circling high above the altar during your ceremony. The chapel will be filled with cemetery fog, tombstones, eerie candlelight and haunting music. (Except Elvira has you boogie down the aisle after your ceremony to strains of “The Monster Mash!”) Select charming black roses for your bouquet, or go traditional blood red with black ribbon….Or? We can customize your frightful flowers in our onsite florist shop.

Feeling sorry that you’re ALREADY married and can’t tie the knot in a graveyard? No problem! You can renew your vows with us, and bring along all of your friends in costume to help celebrate your many happy years of marriage!

Gothic Weddings in Las Vegas–Friday October 13th AND Halloween Night–GOING FAST!

Halloween Weddings Vegas
Viva Las Vegas Weddings goes all out for Halloween—indoor chapels, outdoor chapels, even the parking lot is decorated in ghoulish style!

Planning an October Wedding in Las Vegas? If you’re up for a themed wedding featuring Dracula, Zombie Elvis, the Grim Reaper, Dr. Frank-N-Furter or Elvira Mistress of the Dark as minister, don’t be scared to book early. In fact, Gothic Wedding packages in our cemetery-decked Main Chapel are already almost all booked up for Halloween! (And, only at Viva Las Vegas Weddings can you add flying vampires to soar above the chapel during your wedding. Really. Just ask us.)

If you had your heart set on Halloween night wedding in Vegas, fear not! We can also offer you our candlelit and very spooky Little Chapel as an alternate venue. Footsteps from our Main Chapel, the Little Chapel is dressed in deep burgundy and filled with cobwebs and haunting decor. An elegantly eerie and intimate setting for weddings with 35 guests or less.

If you have lots of guests and still prefer a gorgeous Main Chapel wedding, though– with all the fog and special lighting effects, and a minister stepping out of a coffin–there are still wedding time slots available on the nearly-equally-haunting Friday, October 13th! Call now to reserve your time for the frightful wedding or wedding vow renewal package of your choice—702-384-0771

Our Little Chapel, seen above and below, is mainly open only for Halloween and Valentine’s Day weddings–the two most popular wedding dates of the year. The rest of the year, it’s a cozy reception spot for couples who wish to add a small reception to any Viva Las Vegas Wedding package. (Yes, we do receptions, from simple to lavish in our four reception halls!)

Little Chapel Vegas Weddings
Our Little Chapel transforms into a cobwebby crypt for Halloween night only!

October weather is generally stunning in Vegas, and perfect for outdoor weddings in our Garden or Gazebo Chapels. On Halloween, they’re dressed to the nines in spooktacular glory with jack o’lanterns, giant spiders, cobwebs…and….other stuff…. To see all of the options for your October themed wedding, and to view our Halloween specials, go to http://www.vivalasvegasweddings.com/las-vegas-wedding-packages/holidays-special-events/halloween Don’t wait, or…you might waste away…like the bride below…

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!

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!

Dress in the customary garb of your ancestors for a unique family wedding!

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!
