We’d like to wish everyone a warm and wonderful Thanksgiving Day! As we’re passing the turkey and spending time with our loved ones, families and friends, we’ll be reminded of our gratitude for all the unforgettable couples who have passed through our doors. You’ve allowed us to share your most special and meaningful of days. Because of you, we’re constantly reminded of how precious our connections are with each other.

We also want to thank all of our wedding planners and coordinators, ministers, photographers, limo drivers, talented florists, singers, actors and tribute artists, and all those folks who keep the chapel running like a marrying machine! 🙂 We’ve included a few of their photos here, so you can “see” some of the friendly folks on the other end of the phone.

Dance in the ’50s Diner with Elvis at Your Viva Las Vegas Wedding!

Elvis 50s Diner Wedding Vegas
No worries, we’ll clear the floor of our Doo Wop Diner Chapel so you can dance during your wedding or wedding vow renewal ceremony!

Did you know that for around $300 you can get married in our fabulous Doo Wop Diner Chapel (it’s like a retro 1950s flashback!) with Elvis as the rockin’ out “minister?” It’s the most affordable and fun way to get married in Las Vegas, with packages that include Elvis singing and performing your ceremony, flowers, photography, your own personal wedding coordinator, and even a free wedding invitation/website. Upgrade with live streaming webcam coverage if you have friends and family back home who can’t attend in person.

Our Doo Wop Diner is the most unique Elvis wedding venue in Las Vegas for adorable but intimate ceremonies. You can even choose a themed “minister” and characters from your favorite old TV show. Many couples add a “Marilyn” or “Priscilla” impersonator for a bridesmaid. Feel free to use your imagination! If dancing is your thing, request “It’s Now or Never” for a sexy rumba, or “Can’t Help Fallin’ in Love” for a romantic slow dance as Elvis serenades the two of you.

An intimate diner-style reception with hot dogs and sliders is available as an upgrade to your package, or you can add a simple champagne toast with cake.

How we shine brighter than other chapels on the Las Vegas Strip

Have you noticed? Viva Las Vegas Weddings has a brand new, reimagined website! We hope that as you plan your Las Vegas Wedding, you’ll find it an even more user-friendly way to explore all our Traditional, Themed, and Elvis Wedding packages. It’s also designed to help you easily create a customized wedding in Vegas with just the elements you want.

If you look around our new site for wedding packages and upgrades, you won’t want to miss our “About” pages that explain all the ways we try to make ours THE Vegas wedding chapel for you. Which is why we’re sharing some of the ways “We Shine Brighter” from those pages–to give you an idea of our goals for making yours a seamless, dreamlike wedding experience from beginning to end. Here are the first eight—next week, eight more!

1. We customize your wedding so that it is uniquely YOU.
At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, our dedicated and helpful staff members understand that this is the most important day of your lives. We know you want every aspect of your ceremony to express who you are as a couple. That’s why we’re happy to work with you to create a wedding package that’s elegant or high-spirited or even a bit on the kitschy-Vegas side. Our packages range from classic traditional weddings to wild and crazy Elvis ceremonies. Plus, we offer a wide range of themed weddings. Can’t find one that’s just right for you? We’ll customize every element of your wedding, working with you to create a vow exchange that is like no one else’s. Ever.

Your wedding day is your day to shine!

3. We have the largest freestanding chapel on the Las Vegas Strip.
Our Main Chapel reflects California mission style architecture, with soaring vaulted ceilings and stunning stained glass insets. It offers a touch of rustic flair amidst an invitingly elegant décor. The ambiance will put you (and up to 100 guests) at ease from the moment you walk inside. The Main Chapel is also the place where all of our elaborate Themed Weddings are held. The chapel features state-of-the-art theatrical lighting, with incredible set pieces and smoke effects that can make your wedding look like a professional stage production. Okay, we know you want to look great in your wedding photos, and you want your guests to feel chills when the music begins and smoke billows out around the pews. Our chapel is set up to make the most of the visual and musical aspects of your wedding. As always, though, you’re free to choose your effects, your music, and all the elements that will make your ceremony have the best “look” for you.

4. We feature the widest array of choices for Traditional Wedding Packages in Las Vegas.
Even our most basic indoor and outdoor weddings include flowers, photography and everything you need for a simple, intimate wedding starting from under $300. If you want more frills, choose from our exquisite upgraded packages, all the way up to our to-die-for Fairy Tale Themed Wedding. This incomparable package includes a Fairy Tale Coach Entrance with two coachmen as attendants, costumes for bride and groom (or wedding gown and tux rental), live musician (pianist or organist) or singer, all the lavish extras you could hope for, and even a cake and champagne reception! Need something more reserved? We have everything in between, or we can customize a-la-carte style from a basic traditional package.

Vegas Wedding Receptions
You can add a reception to any Viva Las Vegas Wedding, and we offer four reception areas, elegantly lavish to casual and intimate!

5. Want a traditionally elegant wedding reception, too? We have a SPECTACULAR reception venue right next door!
Whether or not your Las Vegas wedding takes place at one of our wedding chapels, our stunning Ron DeCar’s Event Center is only footsteps away from any of them. Ron DeCar, owner of Viva Las Vegas Weddings, hosts thrilling receptions in a setting reminiscent of the nostalgia of Old Vegas. The Event Center features a vintage bar and lounge, a variety of delectable buffet or sit-down dinner options, live music, and a sizzling dance floor. So, if you want to include an exciting wedding reception with your memorable Viva Las Vegas wedding, nobody does it better, and nothing could be more convenient. Owner Ron also happily welcomes local couples who are looking for a unique venue after their more traditional church weddings elsewhere.

6. We offer a choice of FIVE gorgeous indoor and outdoor wedding chapels.
Besides our two beautifully appointed indoor chapels—our Main Chapel and our intimate Little Chapel, decorated in deep burgundy and ivory—you can choose from two picturesque outdoor venues, featuring lush landscaping and twinkling white lights for evening ceremonies. Or, how about tying the knot in an eye-popping retro (50’s-era) diner? It’s an amazing setting for weddings that include Elvis, Marilyn, or any other of our nostalgic icon “ministers.” After all, you should be able to choose the perfect setting for your vows! All of our chapels are located on one sprawling property, situated right on the Las Vegas Strip between the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino and fabulous Downtown Las Vegas.

We’ve even got flying vampires, a cult favorite Rocky’s Horror wedding, and even an Egyptian-themed wedding ceremony—plus all the bells and whistles that create the necessary atmosphere . You won’t find a more diverse selection of wedding packages anywhere on the planet. And that’s not counting the ones that some couples dream up on their own. Let us know what you’re imagining, and we’ll do everything in our power to make it happen. We’re always delighted to work with you and your ideas.

8. We do on-location and adventure weddings, too!
We can marry you in a helicopter over the iconic lights of Las Vegas, at the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign, at a breathtaking desert and red rock overlook, or even at the Grand Canyon. These packages include all the extras and necessary transportation.
