When ONE Elvis is Not Enough for YOUR Elvis Pink Cadillac Wedding in Vegas!

Two Elvis Vegas Wedding
Sometimes it takes two Elvi to get the job done!

If you’re planning to book an Elvis Pink Cadillac wedding with us at Viva Las Vegas Weddings, and if you’re torn because you also want a Little Elvis to do the ceremony, no problem! This couple just opted for two Elvises! One to drive, and both to split the duties of singing and performing the vow exchange. In Las Vegas, there’s probably no such thing as too much Elvis!

We’ve had various themed weddings, for example, that included Elvis doing a song or two, even if it happened to be an Egyptian or Intergalactic Themed Wedding! (It’s Vegas, after all. Almost nothing seems inappropriate.) We’ve had weddings where the couple and ALL the guests came dressed as Elvis. We’ve had full-sized Elvis AND Little Elvis plus full-sized Marilyn AND Mini-Marilyn impersonators, all for one incredible wedding. We not sure, but we think there are almost no limits to what we can do to accommodate your imagination for your wedding or wedding vow renewal with us! (And we even rent the Elvis and Marilyn costumes in our onsite costume shop.)

Little Elvis weddings
Double weddings or double wedding vow renewal ceremonies are twice the fun with Little Elvis and “regular” Elvis!

There are tons of things you can add to your Elvis wedding to make it even more “Vegas.” Add a showgirl bridesmaid, add Liberace or Tom Jones impersonators, or even book your wedding with Elvis right in front of the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign. See all of our Elvis packages on our website at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com and pull down the drop down menu under Wedding Packages until you find Elvis Weddings. Elvis can also marry you in our fantastic 1950s Doo Wop Diner Chapel, or in our outdoor Gazebo or Garden settings. (That is, one or MORE Elvises can marry the two of you in any location!)

Bride with Mini Elvis

You can put together an Elvis package for less than $300, adding frills and extras a la carte style, or go full-out with our Las Vegas Themed Wedding that includes limo transportation, flowers, photography, theatrical smoke and lights, a showgirl, and even live games of chance during the ceremony! The sky’s the limit on what you can do to create the Elvis Wedding of your dreams in Las Vegas. We can even arrange an Elvis Themed reception in any of our gorgeous reception halls, including an Elvis topped wedding cake. Just ask us to create a custom wedding and reception package all around YOU!

Call us anytime with your ideas and questions. Our friendly staffers will help you make your Sin City wedding wishes come true! Viva Las Vegas, baby! 702-384-0771

5 Ways to Customize Your Viva Las Vegas Wedding or Wedding Vow Renewal

Las Vegas Wedding Flowers

Getting married in Las Vegas makes EVERYTHING simple! At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, you can select your wedding package online, chat online with one of our planning representatives to hear about all your choices and details, and even arrange things with a single phone call. Most of our Viva Las Vegas wedding packages are all-inclusive, some coming with round-trip town car or limousine transportation from your hotel! All wedding packages include photography, your own personal wedding coordinator, and of course, flowers!

And at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapels, you can customize everything about your wedding, to make your ceremony personal to YOU. The easiest way, and the one that’s done most often, is customizing the bridal bouquet. You can go from the included bouquet, in the shade of roses of your choice, to a more exotic one, with particular flowers, a color palette to go with your bridesmaids’dresses, or even a themed bouquet to go with your themed wedding!

Since we have an onsite florist, you can select your flower and ribbon colors and upgrade to the most lavish bouquet imaginable, no matter how basic the wedding you choose. Add corsages, extra flowers for your attendants, matching boutonnieres for groomsmen. We can create whatever level of floral enhancements you have in mind for your Las Vegas Wedding. We’ll put you in touch with our florist, or you can have a look at our amazing floral selections at http://www.vivalasvegasweddings.com/vegas_wedding_flowers.htm

Vegas Wedding Bouquet

Not doing a traditional wedding? Whether it’s an Elvis Blue Hawaii wedding vow renewal (yes, we can arrange fresh orchid leis!) or a Gothic Wedding with vampire minister (black roses, right?), we can create flowers for your day that will awe your guests and make for incredible wedding photos, too! Viva Las Vegas Wedding Flowers!

Since Las Vegas’s stunning fall wedding weather is almost here, consider a wedding ceremony in our Outdoor Gazebo or Garden Chapel. Whether you choose a daytime ceremony in soft lighting filtered through greenery-covered trellises, or an evening ceremony with romantic, twinkling white lights, you’ll have breathtaking photos and an intimate outdoor ceremony. Customize these weddings with an upgrade to a flower-petal-strewn and candlelit pathway in the evening. Or, upgrade to add Elvis to your outdoor wedding! Remember, both of our outdoor venues have live streaming internet accessibility and enhanced sound, plus cool mists in summer and a touch of warmth for winter days and evenings. Call one of our staffers for ideas, suggestions, pricing, etc. for upgrades and unique options for a Garden/Gazebo Wedding. (702-384-0771)

Did you know that in any of our wedding packages, you can add a special song? Sung by Elvis, a classically-trained vocalist, or any of our music legend impersonators? Just let us know, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Another way to add a personal touch to your Viva Las Vegas Wedding is to add a First Dance. For many couples who choose to skip a reception altogether, this is a romantic way to include this special tradition. (There is a slight charge for this upgrade, which extends the length of your wedding and gives guests a touching memory of the two of you dancing together.) If you like, you can choose to add a Father/Daughter Dance instead. Let us know what song you’d like ahead of time, and we’ll make the arrangements to include a sentimental dance in your wedding.

Some couples have surprised even US over the years, adding amazing features to their wedding day. These include a choreographed “flash mob” before the wedding begins, guests costumed to go with a theme, and even THEMES that are not on our website! (We love the challenge. Tell us the character you want for a minister, and share your ideas, and we’ll come up with something just for you!) More often, though, the custom wedding ideas are simple, but powerful. Just last week an entire wedding party came dressed in white, guests included, and the overall look was magnificent!

Indiana Jones wedding in Vegas
We can create your favorite movie themed wedding for you by request!

We don’t technically, for example, have a wedding package with an Indiana Jones-ish minister, but we can put a little something together for you. Prices and included features will be comparable to our OTHER themed weddings. If you are on a tighter budget, you can simply choose a basic traditional wedding package, and adding a character minister and appropriate movie-themed music as a slight upgrade. Some couples customize one of our Themed Weddings by adding extra characters from OTHER movies, or even Elvis. (Yes, we have done weddings that include both Darth Vader and Elvis!)

Harry Potter themed wedding Vegas
Merlin from our Camelot themed wedding can also go full Hogwild!

Sometimes all we have to do is adjust one of our existing themed weddings with all the right touches. In the above photo, we substituted a familiar Wizard for Merlin in our Camelot Themed Wedding and added another well-known character. And, don’t forget, YOU can come dressed to suit a movie role. Recently we did a Grease (the musical) themed wedding in our 50s Doo Wop Diner. The couple came dressed and Danny and Sandy, and bridesmaids were all Pink Ladies. It was SO nifty!

Adam's Family wedding in vegas
Halloween-time weddings bring out the scary movie ministers!

At Halloween–or, year ’round really–we do Gothic Themed Weddings with any number of creepy “ministers.” Once we came up with the entire Addam’s Family! But we’ve also got Dracula, Elvira, the Grim Reaper, Edward, and even Zombie Elvis to do the honors in a foggy graveyard setting.

Call us with your thoughts, and we’ll come up with a package price just for you, with all the options that make your custom wedding or wedding vow renewal uniquely unforgettable! Viva Las Vegas! 702-384-0771

The bride (or groom) is carried down the aisle on a surfboard and into the wading pool of matrimonial bliss to begin the Beach Party wedding ceremony. Really.

Summer is in full sizzling swing at Viva Las Vegas Weddings. Couples who want to get married (or renew their vows on a special anniversary) in barefoot comfort (or in flip flops) on our indoor “beach” are choosing our very hot 1960s Beach Party Wedding Package. Our Beach Party Themed wedding lets you wear your beachwear best and comfy sandals, or come tropically dressed or wearing a wild bikini! We’ve got the beach balls and sand pails, along with surfer dudes to carry the bride down the aisle on a board. Get married to surfin’ Beach Boys tunes with a wacky beachcomber minister–stuck in a ’60s time warp. The very casual Beach Party ambiance makes for a great wedding vow renewal, and it’s popular with your guests too! Who doesn’t want to attend a wedding in flip flops and trunks?

Beach weddings

The Beach Party wedding includes beach fog and lighting effects, flowers, photography and DVD, even round-trip limo service. If you want to take your beach theme a little further, you can add any of our custom extras. Elvis singing a song during the ceremony, or add a hot dog and cake reception, or even a Pink Cadillac or bright yellow hot rod entrance for the groom and his “board.” All you have to do is show up with your beach-clad guests and we’ll make it perfect for you.

When the Bride DOESN’T Wear White

James Bond Wedding Vegas
The bride, on left, wears a slinky black gown to this James Bond 007 Themed Wedding, plus… those Diamonds are forever, too!

Brides, even in Las Vegas, still favor white for first weddings, especially of the traditional variety. White is still the most popular choice at Viva Las Vegas Weddings, whether it’s an elegant traditional wedding, an Elvis wedding, or even a themed wedding. But, since many of our brides are going the non-traditional route, we probably see a much wider palette of color choices in bridal gowns in Las Vegas! Plus, many couples in Las Vegas are renewing their vows, which usually means something more casual, or costumes or colors matching their Elvis or fun themed wedding—the most popular weddings for vow renewal ceremonies!

Red Wedding Gown Vegas
Lady in red…a stunning choice for a bridal gown–perfect for many of our themed weddings, too!

Themed weddings, from Gothic to Egyptian, bring out exotic black gowns, silvers and golds, and flaming reds. Even when the bride and groom choose not to wear a costume to go with their wedding theme, brides often pick a gown that ramps up the theme with a splash of color. Remember when making your flower selection to choose a contrasting color to your gown, ladies, so that the roses or other blooms don’t blend in. Or, you can request ribbon that pops the color of the bouquet against your gown.

Casados 25 anos!

Fun and flirty weddings, like our 1960s Austin Powers theme, Beach Party, or Elvis Blue Hawaii weddings inspire bright colored bridal dresses. If you’re getting married by a Tom Jones or Liberace impersonator, you’ll want to think about some beading and bling!

Black is definitely THE way to go if you book one of our Gothic or Graveyard Themed Weddings, for Halloween or any other day of the year. Over the years, we have seen an stunningly exotic array of lacy, satin-y gowns, rich velvets, and heavily ruffled Victorian bridal apparel–all in black. (Choose black roses for your Goth bouquet…and maybe a blood red ribbon? Or vice versa…Our onsite florist does requests!)

Gothic Vegas Wedding
Getting married by the Grim Reaper (or Dracula, or Zombie Elvis, or Elvira) means black bridal wear is never out of style…

On St. Patrick’s Day, emerald green is the hands-on favorite in gowns, and every holiday sees a more colorful variety of bridal wear. Working at Viva Las Vegas Weddings is like attending a fashion show every single day! Bring it on, ladies! We’d love to see YOUR wedding photo of your non-traditional wedding dress in a non-traditional color. Post away, all you former Viva Las Vegas brides. We’d love to be reminded of your special day with us!

Viva Las Vegas Weddings is a favorite of brides and grooms from all over the world because we have several picturesque and romantic settings to choose from when you book your Traditional, Themed or Elvis Wedding! Many of our Traditional Weddings, and almost ALL of our Themed Weddings are done in our Main Chapel. It’s custom designed with special theatrical lighting and fog effects, included in all of our themes. You can add smoke or fog to any traditional wedding, if you like. It’s especially dramatic if you choose to do a candle lighting ceremony or upgrade to have a live singer performing your song as you dance during the vows. The Main Chapel is the largest freestanding chapel on the Strip and seats up to 100 guests. It’s both spacious AND intimate in feel–perfect for weddings with a lot of guests OR for just the two of you.

When you book an outdoor wedding with us, you’ll be swept from your car or limo (some Outdoor Weddings at Viva Las Vegas include town car transportation or round-trip limousine service from your Strip or Downtown hotel) to a cozy indoor waiting area before the ceremony. There, you’ll meet your minister, your photographer, and then take care of all the paper work and pick up your bouquet and boutonniere!
