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.

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.

Get Married by the Mob in Our Gangster Themed Wedding!

Gangster Wedding vegas
We’ve even done Gangster Themed Weddings on Halloween night—that mobster stuff can be scary!

If you’re having a shotgun wedding (or…NOT), why not get “married by the mob” in Vegas with our Gangster Themed Wedding ceremony? While this kind of kitsch isn’t for everyone, it makes an unforgettable wedding vow renewal, or a great setting for a Gatsby-themed, 1920s-style wedding. We can customize it for you with period music, candlelight and a misty, romantic atmosphere.

Our Vegas chapel is all decked out as an Italian restaurant with red and white checked tablecloths, candles, wine bottles and grapes. Opt for a godfather-style minister, and add an Italian waiter to seat your guests. You can even request an Italian song for a romantic dance during your vows. By special request, you also can tie the knot with Bonnie and Clyde. The two outlaws run into the chapel under machine gun fire to perform the ceremony, then make a quick getaway. At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, you can pretty much have the mobster/outlaw of your choice running the show.

Zoot suit and flapper gear optional for our Gangster Themed Wedding package!
Whether the two of you are fans of The Godfather movies, The Sopranos TV series, Bonnie and Clyde, or even if you’re just Italian, our Gangster Themed Wedding package could mean a bloody fun wedding day for you!

Check out Las Vegas’s new Mob Museum downtown when you go to get your marriage license. How about an Italian-themed reception at our Ron Decar’s Event Center right next door after your ceremony? We’ll continue the mood with authentic Italian cuisine and Mama Millie’s homespun hospitality in a gorgeous vintage Vegas venue. See at www.rondecarseventcenter.com

When it comes to mob-style weddings, we’ve got you covered! For more information visit us at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com or call us at 702-384-0771

Star Trek Conventions in Las Vegas Mean Intergalactic Romance Here at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel!

Star Trek wedding vegas
Get married aboard the vessel of your choice in our Intergalactic Wedding ceremony!

Every August the annual Star Trek Convention comes to town, and along with Trek fans invading the city (happily), wedding couples often visit us at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel to tie the knot in our space-themed Intergalactic Wedding. Whether you’re Original Series fans, or Next Generation, suit up in your uniforms (or rent ours) and be wed in impeccable Starfleet style. (We even do this wedding with a Darth Vader-esque minister, for you “other” couples!)

Space themed wedding vegas
Costumes optional…but it’s extra fun to dress up–even your guests can space out!

Intergalactic Wedding Packages include your choice of sci-fi ministers, photography and video, flowers, special effects and appropriate themed music, plus round trip limousine transportation from your Las Vegas Strip or Downtown hotel. You can also choose to customize your ceremony with any of our many options, including floral upgrades, adding a simple or even elaborate reception package, or adding the services of a hair and makeup artist. We even have an onsite costume rental shop at your disposal! Don’t forget, you can also add characters to your wedding production. It’s not unheard of to see Elvis performing Viva Las Vegas during an Intergalactic wedding–we’ve done that, too! There’s nothing quite like a captain in uniform groovin’ to The King…..

Check out (above) a truly wacky space-themed wedding ceremony where “anything goes” was the rule for the wedding couple and their attendants. Although all the guests wore wildly imaginative, non-space-themed costumes, and although the Romulans attacked during the ceremony (everyone careened across the chapel or fell to the floor), everyone was in tears when the couple read the vows they had written to each other. It was a uniquely fun and endearing wedding! You’re welcome to add any special touches you can dream up. Remember, you also can upgrade to include live streaming to your package so friends and family back home can watch if they can’t be there in person.
