Your Viva Las Vegas Themed Wedding INCLUDES Special Effects!

Elvis Pink Cadillac Wedding
Theatrical fog, lights, Elvis and a spectacular pink Cadillac entrance down the aisle!

When you book any themed wedding at Viva Las Vegas Weddings, you’ll get all the bells and whistles in your all-inclusive wedding package, plus theatrical fog and lighting! We want to make your wedding an EVENT, and there’s nothing like billowing fog surrounding you as you glide down the aisle accompanied by spine-tingling themed music! You’ll only find these kinds of special effects at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel. You can bet that none of your guests will be expecting this kind of full-scale Hollywood-style production value!

If you choose our Elvis Pink Caddy wedding, Elvis drives you right down the aisle with high-beams piercing through the fog. Our Graveyard and Gothic weddings wouldn’t be the same without the cemetery tombstones, coffin for the minister (Dracula or Grim Reaper or Elvira or Zombie Elvis), and, of course, the cemetery fog! Rock ‘N Roll Themed Weddings with any music icon impersonator sizzle with our state-of-the-art lighting effects cutting through the chapel fog.

Michael Jackson impersonator wedding
Musical impersonator weddings are what we do best…fog makes it magical!

Our special fog effect becomes more like an ocean mist for our Elvis Blue Hawaii themed wedding or our Beach Party weddings. There’s also a heavy mist along the “river Nile” for our exotic Egyptian-Themed wedding in which the bride is carried down the aisle on Cleopatra’s Throne by two Egyptian manservants. If you decide on a more traditional wedding, or a simpler package at a more competitive price, you can always add theatrical fog as an upgrade, a la carte style.

Gothic graveyard wedding
Our Graveyard and Gothic Wedding ceremonies are always shrouded in fog!

How to Legally Change Your Name After Your Viva Las Vegas Wedding

Vegas Wedding Marquee
First names on our marquee…but how to change the last name(s) after the wedding?

Once you get married legally in Las Vegas, sometimes brides, grooms or both want to make a name change. Contrary to what some couples believe, this isn’t automatic with the marriage license! You may need to do a little more paperwork after the honeymoon. Here we’ve made things easier for you with this to-do list that makes the whole operation a piece of (wedding) cake. Below you’ll find all the steps to follow–and do them in order–when you are planning to change one or both of your last names. (If you need instructions on how to get your marriage license in Las Vegas before the wedding, go to: http://blog.vivalasvegasweddings.com/2017/03/how-to-get-your-marriage-license-in-las-vegas/

1. Change your name on your social security card. Be sure to do this first, because you’ll need this to make other name changes elsewhere.
Visit the Social Security Administration’s website and fill out the application for a new social security card. That’s all you need to do. Your social security number remains the same–only the name will be different. It takes only a few days to get your new card.

2. Change the name on your driver’s license at your local DMV.
You may need to visit your Department of Motor Vehicles office in person to get a new license. Bring your old license, your certified marriage license and your new social security card.

3. Change your bank accounts to your new name.
Go to your nearest branch in person and bring along your new driver’s license and your marriage license. You’ll want to order new checks and debit and credit cards while you’re at it. If you’ve grown tired of a bank that’s been subjecting you to a lot of extra fees, this might be a good time to open a brand new account in another bank that doesn’t charge fees!

4. Other name changes to think about:
Once you have your new social security card and driver’s license in your married name, all you need to do is figure out what other accounts–utility companies and the like– need updating. Some changes can be made by a phone call, although some companies may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Most of the changes can be made over time as bills arrive in the mail. The bill itself will serve as a reminder to make name changes. Most important of all, be sure to tell your employer so your new name will appear on their payroll!

If this sounds too complicated or time consuming, you also can pay a small fee to companies you’ll find online (type in “Name Change Kit”) and you can do it all with only one form to fill out.

Best wishes to all our newly married and newly-named couples from Viva Las Vegas Weddings!

Your FREE Wedding Website at Viva Las Vegas Weddings!

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.

Action shot captured from the live streaming action during George and Evelyn’s Elvis Pink Cadillac wedding ceremony!

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!
