Add an Elegant Wedding Reception Package to Your Viva Las Vegas Wedding!

Las vegas wedding receptions
We have FOUR unique reception venues on site, including the beautiful new Ron Decar’s Event Center!

Having a Traditional Wedding at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel? If you didn’t elope to Vegas, just the two of you, you might want to add a simple or even an elaborate reception to your ceremony, to make the celebration last! We offer full-on dining and dancing receptions, complete with selections from our gourmet menus, wedding cake designs and open bar. Or, for smaller or Elvis-themed packages, you can add a kitschy reception featuring sliders and sodas in our 50’s Doo Wop Diner!

Viva Las Vegas Weddings can offer incomparable entertainment options for your wedding reception. Choose a DJ, live professional singers and musicians, or even your favorite Vegas impersonators– from Elvis to MJ, to Liberace to Tom Jones! That way, couples who might shy away from an actual Elvis wedding in Vegas can still have Elvis (or whoever else!) entertaining at the reception!

Even if your wedding is NOT at our chapel, you can still book one of our fantastic receptions. Or maybe you want to get married by Elvis in the Diner, or the Event Center rather in one of our chapels. We can arrange that, too. All of our chapels and reception venues are just footsteps away from each other, so your wedding and revelry afterward with your guests flow seamlessly.

Menus range from cake, champagne and light bites to elaborate buffets featuring Italian, Mexican, or Continental menus. You’ll find price ranges that work for every wedding budget.

Get Married by Alison Arngrim of “Little House on the Prairie” at Viva Las Vegas Weddings! (And See a FABULOUS Show FREE!)

See a dinner-theater romp at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, then dine at Ron Decar's fabulous Event Center for the "reception."
See a dinner-theater romp at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, then dine at Ron Decar’s fabulous Event Center for the “reception.”

Alison Arngrim, best known as Nellie Oleson on “Little House on the Prairie,” is making a special appearance on November 13th at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel (AND Ron Decar’s Event Center, right next next door). Our Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel becomes a part of a hilarious Las Vegas production! Joni and Gina’s Wedding is a side-splitting interactive comedy dinner show, but with a twist. There are two brides, which makes the show a perfect and whimsical celebration of the legalization of same sex marriage in Nevada last month.

Troy Heard, the show’s producer explains, “Alison Arngrim played the minister for awhile during the L.A. run. She had a little time in her schedule promoting her book ‘Confessions of a Prairie Bitch,’ so she decided to grace us with her presence.” Arngrim reprises the role of Reverend Pat, the wacky officiant at Joni and Gina’s wedding. And, since she’s really a licensed officiant, Arngrim will also be available to conduct legal ceremonies on the night of November 13th. “Ever since the ban was lifted we’ve been wanting to marry a couple at the show.” Interested couples can contactTroy Heard at joniandgina@gmail.com for details. Best of all, couples being married by Arngrim will receive complementary admission to the show!

After the "wedding" at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, you'll dine next door for the reception at the gorgeous Event Center!

Joni and Gina’s Wedding plays alternating Thursdays through the end of the year at the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel and Event Center, 1201 Las Vegas Blvd. S. Check-in and cocktails begin at 6:45 p.m. and the ceremony begins promptly at 7:30. Tickets are $59.95 for General Admission, which includes the show, buffet, non-alcoholic beverage, and champagne toast; and $79.95 for VIP which includes all of the aforementioned goodies, above, premium seating, and special wedding gift. Las Vegas locals receive $10.00 off General Admission with valid I.D. Tickets can be purchased in advance at www.joniandgina.com. For more information, call 702-423-6366.

Live Dancing to Big Band Music at Viva Las Vegas!

Even if you haven’t booked a Gangster Themed Wedding at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, join us the First Friday in May at Viva Las Vegas Event Center. We’ll have a live Big Band playing all the hits from the era, swing dance lessons, and a yummy selection of food and drink.

The fun begins with professionally-taught swing dance lessons at 6pm, followed by dining and dancing until 9pm. The $25 cover charge gets you in and includes the lesson. After that, we’ll suggest some of our great drink and gourmet food selections, a la carte. Stuff yourself, or eat light, whatever makes your evening perfect. (Food and drink specials are an extra charge.)

This event will take place every First Friday through summer. So, wedding couples who plan ahead might consider combining Gangster or Elvis (or other) wedding package with a night of romance and dancing. The Event Center is right next door to the wedding chapel, so if it’s just the two of you, or just you and a few family members, the Big Band experience can double as a kind of impromtu ‘reception.’

Of course, we also host pre-planned wedding receptions of all sizes, both in our intimate reception room and in the Event Center. It all depends on the size of your wedding party and the degree of elaborateness of your wedding reception. We have almost TOO many choices. For more information on our weddings and receptions, visit us at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com

Take a peek at the fun at our last Big Band night at Viva Las Vegas. And we hope we’ll see you there on May 2nd! http://www.vivalasvegaseventcenter.com/big-band-is-back.html

Viva Las Vegas Event Center Hosts Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis Tribute Artists!

martin-and-lewis-tribute-show3

If you’re a fan of Martin and Lewis, you’ll be blown away, as we were, by tribute artists Tom Stevens (as Dean Martin) and Tony Lewis (as Jerry Lewis). They were featured recently in our regular Swingin’ Sundays at the brand new Viva Las Vegas Event Center, just around the corner from our Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel.

This amazing pair had been working successful solo acts for years, until Tony Lewis, all the way down under in Australia, spotted Stevens’ as Dean Martin on YouTube. Lewis called Stevens in Las Vegas, and the two talked about teaming up. Their uncanny performance gave us goosebumps, and brought back fond memories of two iconic Vegas legends. Have a look at a snippet of their incredible act, below:

Just next door to our Vegas chapel, we’ve got a full line-up of incredible talent just about every night of the week at Viva’s gorgeous Event Center. You can also choose to host your traditional wedding reception there, since we’ve got a full-service gourmet caterer, classic Las Vegas bar and lounge, and custom cake bakery. You can even book amazing musical and performance artists to entertain at your wedding. It’s a Vegas-style wedding reception no one will EVER stop talking about! (Yes, we also have the most fabulous menu and beverage options available anywhere!)

See our many offerings at vivalasvegaseventcenter.com. We’re looking forward to having Stevens and Lewis back again soon, and as often as possible! Check our site often for entertainment updates.
Viva Las Vegas, baby!
