Meet Monica…And Let Her Help You with YOUR Viva Las Vegas Wedding!

Las Vegas Wedding Planner
Here’s Monica, hard at work scheduling weddings and helping with all those wedding details!

Chances are good that when you call Viva Las Vegas Weddings to book or plan your wedding day in Vegas, you’ll speak to Monica, one of our friendliest and most helpful wedding staffers! (She’ll even chat with you online on our website at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com Monica is a HUGE asset to our chapel, since she’s among the rare few NATIVE Las Vegans. (It seems that almost all of our residents came from somewhere else and have migrated to Vegas because of its climate and great career opportunities.) Because Monica grew up here, she knows the city very well and is a good source of advice not only on wedding ideas, but also on great things to see and do while you’re honeymooning in Vegas!

On her days off, Monica loves hiking at nearby Red Rock Canyon (check out our Beautiful Red Rock Wedding Package and the stunning scenery on our website!) or walking along the Las Vegas Strip, checking out all the casino and resort happenings. (You can ask her about her favorites when you call!)

Asked about the best part of her job, Monica says, ” My favorite part of working at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel is meeting people from all over the world and seeing how in love and happy couples are.” When asked what the hardest part of her job is, she replies “Nothing really! Viva Las Vegas is a very well organized company and well-maintained.” (We will ask her again on Valentine’s Day or Halloween, when we’re doing up to 100 weddings in a single day!)

We also asked Monica about the sweetest, funniest or most memorable event she has witnessed at the chapel. “Something I will always remember is (when) one of the wedding guests surprised his girlfriend. He asked her to marry him at the chapel, when she thought they were only here to see his dad renewing his wedding vows. The girl had no idea she was about to receive a marriage proposal!”

From the planning to the kiss, our wedding staffers aim to make your Las Vegas wedding experience seamless and memorable!

Sometimes the best stories our wedding staffers have to share are about the funny things that can go wrong during a wedding. For Monica, this was when a beautiful bride tripped on her dress as she was walking down the aisle. If you ask our wedding planners for advice, they’ll nearly always tell brides to practice walking in their wedding dress and shoes before the ceremony. Make sure the dress isn’t too long, and make sure to practice walking on carpet in heels! (Of course, this doesn’t apply to brides who opt for barefoot for the Elvis Blue Hawaii or Beach Party Themed Weddings!)

Offering up further advice for couples planning their weddings, Monica adds, “Always ask for help and plan ahead of time. Don’t assume something is a certain way–actually spend time doing research and asking experts on the process of getting married.” When you book a wedding at Viva Las Vegas Weddings, you’ll receive an online packet with instructions for every aspect of your wedding day. Reading it and asking questions ahead of time will make sure that your day is exactly what you dream it to be, and that all goes as perfectly as possible!

Say “hello” to Monica if you call or see her at the front counter on your wedding day!

Viva Las Vegas Weddings–Your Reviews on Facebook! (Our faces are red!)

Beatles Wedding Vegas
Don’t see a Beatles themed wedding on our website? Not a problem…Just ask and we’ll do our best to make a custom impersonator wedding just for the two of you!

Every once in awhile, staff members at Viva Las Vegas Chapel check out our reviews on the social media sites, just to see how we’re doing. It’s one way to feel good about what we do each day, and it’s also a good way to see if there are ways we can improve. We’re constantly trying to find out how we can communicate better with our customers and their guests, to help couples know what to expect of their Las Vegas Wedding. Most of all, it’s an important means of seeing things from the perspective of the couples who pass through our big doors each day, in a pink Cadillac, or the regular way!

We thought we’d share some of our recent Facebook reviews with you, in case you’re trying to decide on a chapel to get married in Las Vegas, or to renew your wedding vows. Most Las Vegas chapels offer both Traditional and Elvis Wedding packages, but we try to stand out with our quality of service, variety of chapel settings, and our spectacular Themed and Custom Themed Weddings. Here are a few reviews that made our day!

We traveled from Australia to renew our vows and celebrate my 50th birthday on the 23rd of February, it was everything and more than I expected. Shout out to Blaze who was charming,funny and made it very easy, Elvis was awesome, my husband and friends had the best day, cannot recommend this venue highly enough.

So glad to see this place is still open. We got married here 10 years ago, it was so much fun! I don’t know if they have reopened the themed hotel but that was closed back then. We were married by Elvis in the gothic graveyard chapel… way spooky and weird and perfect for us! The package included limo service to and from our hotel, and professional photos/vhs copy. Great memories!

I wanted the most unique wedding with a friendly budget and after searching venue after venue, I found Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel. We went the very non-traditional route and threw a Halloween wedding. We had aerial dancers, was driven down the aisle by Elvis and a Las Vegas Showgirl and exchanged vows with the Grim Reaper by our side. The sound system and effects are spectacular. We wanted theatrics and we sure got it!

March 23
It’s been almost a year, April 1, 2016 was our wedding day. The chapel was perfect, the atmosphere was exactly what we wanted for our day. I came down with shingles shortly before our wedding day, so I was in so much pain, but the staff at the chapel did their best to make me comfortable and everything turned out beautiful. We are returning to vegas next week to celebrate our first anniversary and to have a mini honeymoon. We’ll come back again to this chapel someday to renew our vows as well.
Thanks viva las vegas for making our wedding a day to remember!

Me and my partner Brian got married on the 15th May and honestly we could not recommend enough. They where there the whole way through planning and answered any questions we had. They treated us with love and respect on the day of the wedding and we found every single member of staff to be friendly and welcoming. We could not have asked for a better wedding. Thank you to every one of you. You made our special day that little bit extra special. If you plan on getting married, I urge you to choose viva Las Vegas weddings!!

We at Viva Las Vegas Weddings thank you for your kind input, and we vow to try to live up to your expectations. Let us know how we can make YOUR day, and we’ll always try our hardest to surpass your expectations! Our deepest thanks from Viva Las Vegas Weddings!

Wedding Karaoke in Vegas! Sing During Your Viva Las Vegas Wedding!

Vegas Wedding Karaoke
We’ve got all the right stuff to make you sound as good as…possible….

Recently a Viva Las Vegas Weddings couple renewed their wedding vows for an anniversary and treated their chapel full of guests to a karaoke duet at the end of their fabulous Elvis wedding ceremony! Our ears are still stinging, but it was both hilarious and touching and oh-so-special! Everyone present LOVED it!

At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, we’re happy to customize your ceremony with the unique elements that make your wedding or wedding vow renewal package completely YOU. If you want to sing, bring your karaoke CD, or request for us to set this up for you. Want to dance to “your song” at the end of the wedding or during the vows? We can arrange that, too. We’ve got fantastic sound equipment and can even provide a live vocalist or musician if you want to go all out.

Although we have a wide range of Traditional. Themed and Elvis wedding packages, we’re likely the only chapel on earth that will be delighted to help out should you want to COMBINE themes or create one that’s not among the wide range of wedding packages listed on our website at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com.

Theatrically lit Vegas wedding
Our theatrical lighting makes you look good while you tie the knot…or sing…or dance!

Our weddings include flattering theatrical lighting, too, plus dramatic fog effects if you choose a themed package or add fog as an upgrade. It’s your wedding day, so you want to shine– and we’ll do our best to make that happen. If you have friends and family who can’t come to your Las Vegas wedding in person, add live streaming coverage so they can watch your “production” online!

Even if you’re having a traditional wedding, consider an unexpected touch to make your day unforgettable. If you’re fans of a particular vocal group or singer, we can bring in an impersonator, either to conduct the vows and sing, or to just make a brief appearance to sing the song of your choice during the otherwise “normal” traditional ceremony. Often you can save money on our packages by requesting just the elements that are important to you.

We’re hoping it won’t be long before we hear another custom karaoke wedding here at the chapel. Call us with any requests or questions you may have, and we hope you’ll make our day and come sing and dance at our Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel! 702-384-0771
