Second Wedding in Las Vegas? Bring the Kids!

Obvious hair envy!

Coming to Las Vegas to marry for the second time ’round often means a larger wedding party for YOU! What with the kids and all…grown or otherwise! Yes, we do many, many Traditional-style wedding vow renewals, and also lots of simply elegant second weddings, but we think it’s a fantastic chance to have some fun with the family–if an Elvis or Themed Wedding is more your thing these days! At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, you can choose from our dozens of wedding package offerings, or make up one of your own.

Here are a few snapshots of little wedding attendants over the last few years!

She bop she bop, poodle skirts in the diner!

At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, you’re not limited at to one venue, either! We have the warm, traditional Main Chapel that converts into a theatrical stage for themed weddings. We also have our 1950s Doo Wop Diner Chapel for more casual and quirky Elvis, The Fonz, Grease, or whatever retro themed minister/’50s TV show theme character you have in mind. We also have two lovely and picturesque outdoor chapels, a sleek and sophisticated Little Chapel, and others!

So, dress up the kids as your wedding attendants for a second wedding spectacular in Vegas! While we do rent adult costumes in our costume shop (many people just bring their own, though!), we don’t generally have child sizes, so you’ll be on your own. But our helpful staff can give you advice on costuming, or we can recommend a GREAT costume shop just a mile or so from the Strip. Sometimes couples keep it as simple as funny hats or wigs. And sometimes EVERYONE is dressed as Elvis!

Questions! Just call us up at 702-384-0771. Second weddings don’t require a marriage license, and all of our ceremonies can be performed as renewal-of-vows ceremonies. Be sure to ask about streaming your fun family wedding live online for the folks back home. Viva Las Vegas! www.vivalasvegasweddings.com

Dancing During Your Viva Las Vegas Wedding

Las Vegas Wedding Marquee Lights
Taking a dip beneath our marquee, where your names will be up in lights on the Strip after your wedding ceremony!

So maybe you’re coming to Las Vegas to elope, to renew wedding vows, or to have a full-on Traditional Wedding that’s both affordable and unforgettable. In any case, you may want to dance during your ceremony, to make it truly your own, and truly romantic. (And, if you’re not having a reception afterward, you’ll still get to do your “First Dance!) For couples who want to add a reception with us, you can dance there, too, with dance floor and DJ!

If you’re having an Elvis wedding, you have the opportunity to slow dance to whatever songs are included in your package. This may be “Love Me Tender” or “Can’t Help Fallin’ in Love” and/or “It’s Now or Never.” Many couples simply sway in each others arms as Elvis serenades them. (Don’t worry, if you don’t want to dance, just hold each other’s hands and enjoy the performance!) But if you’d like to spice things up a bit and wow your guests (either the in-person ones, or those who may be watching the ceremony streamed live online), consider learning a couple of impressive but simple moves! See the GREAT instructional video, below:

After a few minutes of practice, you’ll be set for the big day!

If you’re having a Traditional Wedding–no Elvis–you can still choose to do a “First Dance” during your ceremony, and you can even select your own music. Just let our staffers know what you have in mind when you call to book your wedding, and they’ll explain all the details. They may ask you to bring your own CD, or they can arrange to have our crew cue it up for you via iTunes.

Did you know you can add a LIVE singer to perform your wedding song? We have several professional vocalists on hand–that is, besides Elvis, Tom Jones, Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Prince, Jim Morrison…–who can sing just for you. Choose a lovely soprano or handsome baritone or tenor to perform in stunning formal wear as you say your vows and move as one. Upgrade prices begin at $150, which is a bargain when you consider how perfectly it customizes your wedding and amazes your guests. Imagine the two of you slow-dancing by candlelight to your favorite romantic ballad. You can even add theatrical fog! We will customize your dance and pull out all the stops, at your request.

For more information on adding a wedding dance or a song of your choice, call our friendly wedding planners at 702-384-0771, or chat with us online at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com

Gazebo Wedding Vegas
Dance during your wedding ceremony either in our Main Chapel or our Outdoor Gazebo or Garden Chapels!

Free Kisses with Your Elvis Wedding in our ’50s Diner Chapel!

Vegas 50s Diner Wedding
Grab a kiss on the cheek (no charge!) at your Elvis Doo Wop Diner wedding or vow renewal!

Did you know you can choose to have your Elvis Wedding in Vegas (or your Elvis wedding vow renewal!) in our 1950’s era Doo Wop Diner Chapel? It’s just outside our Main Chapel, and for a quirky Elvis wedding in Vegas, it makes your special day all the more memorable. We still have live streaming of your ceremony available, and you can even host a simple, soda-shop-style reception right in the diner afterwards!

Best of all, kisses from Elvis are free! (Or, we should say, Elvis prefers kisses on the cheek, no extra charge!)

Renew Vows with Elvis
Unforgettable fun for a wedding with Elvis, or a special anniversary vow renewal!

We offer several different Doo Wop Diner packages with varying degrees of frills added. You can even substitute Tom Jones or Marilyn or any other tribute artist to play the role of “minister” at your one-of-a-kind wedding! Speak to one of our friendly wedding staffers when you call to book a wedding, or just to ask questions about customizing your unique wedding with us. 702-384-0771. Here are the details from our website of one of our most popular packages. See more by clicking on Elvis Weddings on our homepage at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com

Happy Birthday to Elvis, the King of Rock ‘n Roll!

Born on January 8, 1935, Elvis would be celebrating his 83rd birthday today. We’ll be thinking of Elvis all this week as our amazing impersonators perform Elvis wedding ceremonies. Some of our brides and grooms are dedicated fans, but most couples who celebrate their marriage with an Elvis wedding in Vegas are either renewing their vows or getting married by Elvis because it’s THE way to get hitched when in Vegas! But today especially we’ll honor the memory of the legendary performer with our respectful-yet-lighthearted Elvis weddings.

Elvis wedding Las Vegas
Not the real deal, but we come as close as we can for your unforgettable Elvis wedding ceremony!

January 8th, Elvis’s birthday, is often a busy wedding day here at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel. For those Elvis fans who are planning a spring wedding in Vegas, May 1st, the anniversary of Elvis and Priscilla’s wedding, is a great day to book your Elvis Pink Caddy or Elvis Blue Hawaii wedding package. The two were married at the old Aladdin Hotel (now Planet Hollywood) in Las Vegas. Lots of folks like to dress up as Elvis and Priscilla for a fun and unforgettable wedding or wedding vow renewal ceremony. We even rent costumes—or, bring your own! (Sometimes it’s just the shades and sideburns, and the veil!)

Elvis and Priscilla Wedding
Upgrade and add Priscilla for your May 1st wedding–here, an Elvis Blue Hawaii with Priscilla as matron of honor dancing the hula to the Hawaiian Wedding Song!

Coming to Las Vegas with friends? We also do a lot of wild and crazy Elvis wedding vow renewal ceremonies, with two or more couples tying the knot for a second time with The King. Renewing vows, either with Elvis or with one of our romantic Traditional or unique Themed weddings is a popular way to celebrate a special anniversary or to surprise your spouse for a big birthday.

And, speaking of birthdays, we will be thinking of Elvis today on his birthday, even more fondly than we think of him EVERY day at Viva Las Vegas Weddings. In this year, Elvis will have been gone for as long as he was alive, a thought that brings a tear to all who are still missing him.
