Halloween Weddings in Las Vegas Have ALREADY Begun!

Halloween Wedding with Frankenstein
Sid and Sabrina tie the knot with Frankenstein minister at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel!

It’s still early October, but at Viva Las Vegas Weddings, Halloween weddings set in our chapel dressed as a graveyard are already a happening’ thing! Halloween makes the most awesome wedding day–and anniversary! But since we specialize in the spookiest of Gothic and Graveyard themed weddings, we celebrate the whole month of October!

This week, Sabrina and Sid requested to be married by the Frankenstein monster, who stepped out of a coffin to perform their really creepy rites, amidst smoke, candlelight and eerie music. The couple stood among tombstones and cobwebs, and requested that all their guests wear black.

Special requests? Even though not on our website, we’ve done Addam’s Family weddings (with Gomez as minister), and you can request a Lady Vampire minister or even vampires who fly high above the chapel (silk artists!) during your ceremony!

How about an outdoor wedding in a haunted gazebo filled with twinkling lights and cobwebs? You’ll find Halloween themed weddings with your choice of frightful ministers in our Garden and Gazebo chapels, too. See photos and details on our website, link above.

Gothic Wedding Gone Wild!

Halloween weddings las vegas
Time to book those spooky Gothic Weddings. Halloween’s only three months away!

It’s that time of year when our popular Halloween Wedding time slots begin filling up at Viva Las Vegas Weddings. We recently watched one of our Gothic Themed Weddings on YouTube to reminisce, and it really gave us a start… And the giggles! As scary as it was, the bride had her hands full corralling her young attendants—and she missed the Grim Reaper’s grand entrance altogether.

So, check out this video clip if you think a Gothic Wedding with Grim Reaper or Dracula minister might make your perfect October wedding. See Johnny and Niki’s wedding, below. (Note: The video camera doesn’t focus well until the cemetery fog clears, so give it a minute, and enjoy!)

“>“>”>
For your Halloween-themed wedding, we provide all the atmosphere, special effects and horrifying “minister,” while you provide your own costumed selves…Or rent costumes from our costume shop! Do reserve early, if you can.Halloween is a VERY busy date for weddings at Viva Las Vegas. Our tombstone-bedecked Main Chapel, haunted Outdoor Gazebo and Garden chapels, and tomb-like Little Chapel are all booked until midnight, so you’ll need to plan this far in advance if you have your sights set on a Halloween Wedding in Vegas. Fair warning!

Check out our wide range of Halloween-themed wedding packages by visiting us at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com Then, from the drop-down menu, select “Themed Weddings” at the top of the page. After that, simply click on our Gothic, Graveyard, Dracula’s Tomb, Rocky’s Horror, Zombie, Thriller, Phantom, or When Vampire’s Fly wedding packages! There’s a Halloween wedding for everyone, or we’ll customize one for YOU! See you in October! (But, hey, we’ll perform any of these Gothic weddings any day of the year, if you want to be “different”…..)

Meet Olivia, Viva Las Vegas Wedding Planner Extraordinaire!

Oliva the Las Vegas Wedding Planner
Olivia, ready to coordinate your Halloween wedding, dressed up and posing with …Dead Elvis?

If you’ve called our chapel with questions about your upcoming Viva Las Vegas Wedding, chances are good you’ve spoken with perky staff member Olivia. You’ll know because you can hear her smiling right over the phone! Olivia’s been with us nearly three years, and she explains, “I do a bit of everything. I book weddings, coordinate them, assist customers with problems, check them in–I do everything but drive limos!” In fact, Olivia was once called upon to be a female Elvis…(We more or less expect this sort of thing at our themed wedding chapel. Nothing surprises Olivia…so far!)

Asked what is the hardest part of her job, Olivia answers, “That’s a tough one. I would say it’s hardest when we get so busy that we can’t talk to couples as long as we’d like to, to get to know them better.” But, the best part, according to Olivia, is the creativity. “We’re not a regular chapel. It’s really nice being able to make couples’ dreams come true. We have fun here, and that’s what weddings are all about!”

Olivia continues about her crazy-fun job: “My favorite holiday at Viva is definitely Halloween! Halloween is actually Ron Decar’s (the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel owner) favorite holiday. We decorate everything, and even the employees get to dress up! We even have costume contests and have Gothic/Cemetery Weddings all day long, inside and out in the Garden and Gazebo.”

What’s her most outrageous wedding request to date? “There was a wedding I booked LAST MINUTE. The groom told me he wanted the most unique EVER. This made me think that I really needed to get creative. The wedding ended up including a Pink Caddy Entrance with Elvis driving into the chapel and Darth Vader standing at the altar. Elvis and Darth started doing battle, then Michael Jackson broke out dancing, all the while Cirque du Soleil acrobats were flying overhead! Let’s just say the couple was very pleased.”

What’s Olivia’s best advice for couples in regard to their wedding? “Don’t get so stressed out and overwhelmed that you don’t enjoy your special day. I see so many brides come in
with a mad or sad face because they are so worried about everything coming out perfectly. They don’t really take in their special moment. Of course it is a stressful day, but do everything in advance so you can enjoy it. It’s okay and natural to BE nervous. But a good, excited type of nervous. ”

How did Olivia wind up with such a fantastic one-of-a-kind career? Olivia was born in Havana, Cuba and came to the U.S. after winning a lottery at the age of seven. She lived in Miami, New York,and Pennsylvania before settling in Las Vegas. Says Olivia, “I am SO glad we settled here!” Las Vegas is the capital of the universe for jobs that combine the uniqueness, glamour and fun. All of which Olivia has down in spades. Olivia has been on a winning streak her whole life, it seems. And we at the chapel are SO glad she settled here, too!
