Viva Las Vegas Wedding Transportation Options

Elvis Pink Caddy wedding las vegas
Getting married in Las Vegas calls for some special wheels!

At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, we’ll help get you to the chapel on time, with courtesy round-trip transportation, via luxury town car or stretch limo, included in many of our traditional, themed and Elvis wedding packages. (See each package for details on what’s included, wheels-wise, at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com )

Our Elvis Picks You Up package, a thrilling way to cruise the Strip on the way to your wedding, is unavailable in summer…bummer. (Convertibles, when temperatures top 110 degrees here in Vegas, take on the feeling of a giant blast furnace.) However, you can still make an unbelievable entrance in the Pink Caddy, right down the aisle of the chapel any time of year! (A short trip, but the most spectacular Elvis wedding entrance EVER!) Just ask about our Elvis Pink Caddy wedding, or add the Pink Cadillac entrance to any other package as an upgrade.

All of our Themed weddings include stretch limo transportation, an unforgettable way to take in the lights of Vegas on your wedding night. If your traditional package does not include the limo, you can always add-on fancy wheels or upgrade any other aspect of your traditional or Elvis wedding.

Gadzooks! We just came across this uncensored Viva Las Vegas Hangover Themed Wedding posted on YouTube. We remember most of the Hangover wedding vow renewal that took place at our chapel. But the extracurricular fun we didn’t see, captured on this video before and after the ceremony, was…interesting, to say the least!

Three of Our Most Affordable Las Vegas Wedding Packages—All Under $300

Simple Vegas Wedding Package
We offer a romantic, simple and traditional ceremony for under $250

If you want a sweet and simple wedding in Las Vegas, and if you’d rather spend the money on a fantastic honeymoon than on a big, fancy wedding, you can’t go wrong with our Simplicity wedding package. It has all the basic elements: a simple rose presentation for the bride, music, romantic chapel, basic photo package, and personal wedding coordinator. This affordable Las Vegas wedding has everything you need, but don’t forget to visit the Marriage License bureau ahead of time to obtain your license. (For details, see: www.blog.vivalasvegasweddings.com/category/marriage-license

Our affordable Las Vegas weddings don’t include the $60 minister’s fee (to make it legal). That’s something you will pay directly to him or her. But, for less than most couples spend on their wedding shoes, you’ll have an otherwise all-inclusive, romantic and intimate wedding in Vegas! Remember, you can always add just the frills you want. Bigger bouquet? Limousine ride to the chapel? Online streaming of your ceremony? We can do all of that, too.

Outdoor Vegas Weddings
Outdoor Gazebo wedding packages start at $275

If you’ve always wanted a wedding in a quaint outdoor garden setting, our Outdoor Gazebo package is perfect for you. Packages start at $275 and include simple flowers, a basic photo package, personal wedding coordinator and free wedding website. Evening outdoor ceremonies run slightly more but include romantic twinkling lights. And, if you have more than 15 guests, you’ll want to upgrade to our picturesque Garden Chapel. Each package upgrade includes more extras, but it’s all up to you how elaborately you wish to go.

Affordable Elvis wedding Las Vegas
Choose from affordable Elvis packages starting at under $260

Of course, lots of brides and grooms can’t imagine getting married in Las Vegas without Elvis. The Elvis Hound Dog Wedding package ($260) includes The King to conduct your ceremony and sing, a simple presentation of two perfect roses, plus a basic photo package. Remember you’ll also need to pay the legal minister’s $60 fee in addition to the package price. If you want to go fancier, select any upgrades you might like, a la carte, or choose from more lavish packages, some including limousine or Pink Cadillac transportation options.

A Visit With Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel Owner Ron Decar

Ron Decar Viva Las Vegas
Elvis? Dracula? Business Owner? It’s all in a day’s work for Ron!

You might not recognize him in some of his many roles as Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel owner, but if you’re getting married here in Vegas, there’s an excellent chance you’ll spot him disguised as Elvis, Merlin the Magician, The Godfather, or even James Bond.

With all the hats he wears, we’re pretty sure Ron Decar has hardly slept since opening the chapel nearly 16 years ago. Before that time, he spent almost two decades performing as a lead singer in shows on the Las Vegas Strip, including 12 years as principal singer and host of the Folies Bergere at the Tropicana Hotel.

How did Ron get the idea to open his own chapel? Well, early in his Vegas singing career, Decar realized that there was a niche for Elvis impersonators at Strip wedding chapels— vocalists who could sing iconic Elvis songs while performing wedding ceremonies for couples who were up for fun and exciting Vegas- style weddings. Ron looked the part, and, man, did he have the voice! So, he ordered a custom glitzy jumpsuit and portable sound equipment. Moonlighting as Elvis by day (driving to chapels in his vintage pink Cadillac convertible), Decar continued to work as a Las Vegas show emcee by night for several years.

When the opportunity came to invest in his very own chapel right on The Strip, it was really a no-brainer. Says Ron, “I wanted to be able to give couples the full theatrical experience. And a choice. Not just Elvis weddings, but fantastic themes, with theatrical lights, fog, sets, the works. And I wanted every couple to feel special and to have exactly what they imagined for their ceremony. After all, it’s their wedding day!”

Here’s a short video clip of Ron, proudly giving a mini-tour of his Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel:

Ron’s latest addition to the chapel is the adjacent Viva Las Vegas Event Center. Here, couples can book large and lavish wedding receptions with “the works” as far as entertainment, dining and dancing goes. And, in keeping with Ron’s wealth of experience in the entertainment field, the Event Center is also becoming a hot new venue for lounge and cabaret shows, Big Band dance nights with live musicians, dinner theater productions and everything imaginable. As if Ron didn’t already have enough to do…

There are almost unlimited options for brides and grooms at Viva Las Vegas Weddings, thanks to Ron’s inventiveness, drive and incredible work ethic. Despite all the fun and craziness, “Viva” still focuses heavily on exquisite traditional ceremonies in the Main Chapel and outdoor Garden and Gazebo Chapels. But, it’s nice to know you can still have Elvis, Austin Powers, or even James Bond make an appearance on your wedding day. See all of our fantastic traditional, Elvis and Themed wedding packages at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com

So, if you’re booking a wedding with us at Viva Las Vegas, keep your eyes peeled for Ron. He’ll probably be rushing by on his way to a costume change. But, if you greet him with a “Hi, Ron,” he’ll almost always flash you the biggest smile ever. The man is living the dream. 🙂

Sharing Elvis and Priscilla’s Las Vegas Wedding Anniversary!

Elvis chauffeur for Vegas wedding
Elvis, does Priscilla know about all the hot babes going to the chapel in your car?
Coming up May 1st will be the 47th wedding anniversary of Elvis Presley and his beautiful bride, Priscilla! They were married in Las Vegas at the former Aladdin Hotel, now Planet Hollywood. We’ve got some of the nostalgic footage, below.

We’ve been doing Elvis weddings (as well as the traditional ones) at Viva Las Vegas Weddings for over 15 years, so we know to expect a few Priscilla’s and Elvi walking down the aisle on that iconic date. (We also arrange for costumes and wigs, for those enthusiastic fans who want to dress up as E & P for their own Vegas wedding.) For those die-hard Elvis fans, sharing an anniversary with Priscilla and The King makes choosing a wedding date a no-brainer. (Elvis’s birthday is pretty big day at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, too!)

Believe it or not, our Elvis weddings are done in the most elegant traditional style. Some couples prefer a licensed minister to officiate, with Elvis singing a romantic ballad during the vows. But most fans want Elvis to perform the ceremony instead, even if the bride is in a formal gown and the groom’s wearing tails. Our newest package is called “Elvis Picks You Up.” You can be chauffeured to your wedding by The King himself in his vintage ’64 Pink Caddy!

For more information on our Elvis wedding packages, including the grand Pink Cadillac entrance down the aisle, or the “Elvis Picks You Up” package, visit our website at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com
