Wedding website Vegas
George and Evelyn write about finding love before their Viva Las Vegas wedding!

When you book any wedding at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, you’ll receive a free web page. It’s where your wedding can be seen live-streaming, if you choose, and it doubles as an invitation to friends and family. You can post photos and write a little something about your life together. Personalize your page however you like!

We love reading the stories couples post on their pages, and looking at photos from times they’ve shared before their wedding (or wedding vow renewal) day!

Recently, George and Evelyn tied the knot with us. Their words and photos made us smile, and we thought they’d serve as a wonderful example of how to create a lovely, personal web page for your upcoming wedding.

Tell the story of how you met each other:
After months of emailing each other and finding out how much we shared in common we then agreed to finally meet. We did not describe our looks or share any photos although George kept joking that he had orange and white striped hair. George and Evelyn agreed to meet outside The West Goshen Shopping Center Acme Market in West Chester PA. Evelyn was dressed in a black choir robe with a rubber chicken on her head to be sure that George would know exactly who she was when he drove up to the bench outside the Acme. When George drove up to the bench he immediately knew it was Evelyn but Evelyn was expecting to see George with orange and white striped hair …but… George had no hair on his head at all!!! George and Evelyn laughed alot about that. George and Evelyn spent the rest of the day exploring beautiful Jim Thorpe PA and have been together ever since.

The Proposal:
After 15 years of being together George asked Evelyn to celebrate their 15 anniversary of being together at Virginia Beach VA. George booked a hotel room with a beautiful ocean view right on the beach. While traveling to Virginia Beach a storm came up which turned out to be a Nor Easter. George had a challenge driving across the 17 1/2 miles Bay Bridge Tunnel to Virginia beach due to rain and high winds but made it across. The weather only worsened after checking into the hotel and from the Ocean View window the Waves were wild and sand began blowing into the room from the beach from the high winds. The sound of the wind blowing through the hotel was quite eerie. George arranged to eat dinner at an Italian restaurant across the street and George and Evelyn had to run across the street in heavy rain and wind. Due to the severe weather conditions there was hardly any one in the restaurant except the staff. Evelyn and George had their choice of tables to choose from. After the waitress took the order George handed Evelyn a read glass heart encased in another porcelain ceramic heart that Evelyn had given George on their first Valentines Day in 2001 together. George stated that he was giving this to back to Evelyn as a symbol to remind him of his love for Evelyn and stated to Evelyn ‘Well this isn’t exactly how I wanted to do this.. I wanted to have you out on the beach in the moonlight to say this to you but I am just going to say this. Will you marry me? I really think we should get married.” Evelyn looked at George in pleasant shock and almost fell off of her chair since it had been 15 years together it really caught Evelyn off guard and when Evelyn re-composed herself she said to George “Of course I will marry you – you idiot” I love you!” The waitress came back to our table and she took a picture of us on this happy occasion and dessert was on the house!

Thanks to George and Evelyn for your amazing story. You made us want to share it! Best wishes to the two of you for happiness always in your future life together!

Best Money-Saving Tips for Your 2017 Viva Las Vegas Wedding!

Canyon wedding Las Vegas
Springtime wedding? Consider one of our outdoor chapels, or the Beautiful Red Rock Wedding!

If you’re planning to get engaged over the holidays, or already have plans to get married in Las Vegas in the New Year, have we got a few pointers for YOU! Whether you’re looking to save a little by comparing wedding packages, or to save A LOT in the long run by booking one of our all-inclusive indoor or outdoor Themed Weddings, we’re pretty sure you’ll find something just right for you and your wedding budget!

A few tips to share with you:

Traditional brides should know that wedding dresses go on sale nationwide in December! You can save up to 70% on your DRESS at this time of year, just because bridal shops are clearing out inventory to make room for the next year’s bridal fashions. (We know, you’re spending lots of money on the holidays already….But…just sayin’…)

Outdoor Vegas Wedding
Daytime outdoor weddings in our Garden and Gazebo Chapels are less expensive than the evening versions.

In spring and fall, our Outdoor Gazebo, Garden and Beautiful Red Rock weddings are very popular. Booking our outdoor weddings during daytime hours will save you some money over the evening packages, and you’ll benefit from the flattering natural light under the lush foliage that surrounds you during the ceremony. While our Red Rock Canyon wedding is more expensive, it includes EVERYTHING couples most want, with a fantastic limo ride into a spectacular desert setting just outside Las Vegas. It’s a LOT of bang for the wedding buck!

Next up, if you’re also looking to save money, schedule your Viva Las Vegas Wedding on a weekday. You will likely save money on Las Vegas room rates. Be sure to ask us about our weekday wedding specials like Traditional Tuesdays and Phantom (as in “of the Opera”) Fridays! You might also create your own bargain by selecting one of our simpler packages and adding only the upgrades and features that you really want! Our staff will be happy to steer you to customize your wedding and make it practical and economical to boot! (Give us a call, 702-384-0771.)

Another money saver? Consider booking a room downtown rather than on the Strip. Room rates tend to be lower, and there are several completely renovated hotels that are absolute stunners. Check out, for example, the Downtown Grand, the Golden Nugget, and the newly-refurbished Plaza. Your ride to our chapel is just minutes away, too, and you’ll be walking distance to the Marriage Bureau besides!

Simple Vegas wedding
Simple weddings are almost always the best!

While we DO offer elaborate Traditional Weddings with all the frills, and some fun, wild and crazy Elvis and Themed Weddings, bear in mind that keeping things simple is often not only less expensive, but sometimes even more memorable. No reception? We can send you back to your room with a little wedding cake just for the two of you, and maybe enough to share with a handful of guests. (Ask us about our wedding cake to-go.) Intimate and small weddings take on a lot of meaning, and you’ll find there’s more money for the fun honeymoon in Vegas to follow! Best wishes on your engagement, and we’ll see you for your 2017 wedding at Viva Las Vegas Weddings! www.vivalasvegasweddings.com

A Beautiful Remembrance of Lost Loved Ones at a Viva Las Vegas Wedding

Today we were moved almost to tears by an endearing addition to an Elvis Blue Hawaii wedding ceremony. Hal and Marianne of Austin, Texas found a beautiful way to include departed family members in their special day. Marianne came down the aisle (escorted by Elvis singing “Can’t Help Falling in Love”), then placed floral leis on life-sized photographs of her father and son, standing near the altar. The bride also placed a third lei on a framed portrait of her mother. The cheerfulness of the colorful, lighted leis and smiling guests all around made it seem like a gesture of great happiness and love.

Hal and Marianne

The couple brought along 30-plus guests from Texas, Chicago, and even Las Vegas, all dressed in their tropical best for the occasion. After the ceremony, everyone enjoyed cake and champagne before leaving Viva Las Vegas Chapel–and apparently they had a full evening of wine-ing and dining ahead of them on the fabulous Las Vegas Strip!

We were grateful to Hal and Marianne for letting us share their very touching idea with others. We’re pretty sure many folks out there might want to do something similar for their weddings or wedding vow renewals, and we are happy to work with you to make it happen. We’ve rarely seen such a heartfelt way to express the joy and love of family.

Best wishes for Hal and Marianne for a happy lifetime together! We felt honored to be a part of your day.
