Anniversary Vow Renewal in Las Vegas? Bring the Kids!

Darth Vader minister wedding
Themed weddings–like this Intergalactic ceremony– are fun for all ages!

Viva Las Vegas Weddings’ Elvis and Themed Weddings make loving and light-hearted wedding vow renewals, so it’s no surprise that couples celebrating 10, 15 or 20 years of marriage include the kids on their special day! Young ones love wearing costumes as part of a themed vow renewal, and even if the ceremony you choose is more traditional, they feel very grown up dressing in fancy duds for the occasion as they take part in the proceedings.

We see a lot of tiny Elvi going down the chapel’s aisle (see below), but our Superhero, Blue Hawaii, and Intergalactic weddings also bring out some junior-sized luau wear and character costumes. Ring bearers and flower girls strut their stuff as gangsters, wizards, space princesses, and mini-zombies. For kids who are less outgoing, though, themed and Elvis ceremonies are casual enough that shorts and t-shirts are fine, too. Some just add a tropical lei, or Elvis sunglasses, available here in our gift shop.

At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, we encourage creativity. We still remember an entire family who came dressed as Vikings, and another where all the male family members wore kilts. Other families and their guests have arrived dressed as space aliens of every ilk. Needless to say, we don’t have many boring days here at the the chapel! While Themed and Elvis Weddings are not for everyone for their first weddings, vow renewals bring out a whole different side–and a lot of imagination–in couples.

Consider adding-on a casual Doo Wop Diner reception if your wedding is a family affair. We’ll serve up sliders, hot dogs, sundaes/soda fountain fare in our retro 1950s setting. We take requests for all weddings, vow renewals, and receptions. Just give us a call with your ideas and special needs, and we’ll do all we can to make it happen for you! 702-384-0771

Our Most Popular Viva Las Vegas Wedding Package? Elvis Blue Hawaii!

Blue Hawaii Vegas Wedding
Palm trees, theatrical lighting, and beach mist make you feel like you’re on the beach in Hawaii!

Wedding couples often ask which is our most popular Elvis wedding. The Elvis Blue Hawaii wedding package, of course! You’ll feel like you’re in a tropical paradise with the “ocean mist” (created by our theatrical fog machines) rolling in, a hula girl swaying, and Elvis crooning “The Hawaiian Wedding Song” as you cuddle or slow dance at the altar. Many couples opt to add our fantastic pink Cadillac entrance down the aisle! It’s Vegas, baby! So feel free to go all-out with the optional extras!

We’ll share some highlights from Stan and Cynthia’s Elvis Blue Hawaii wedding. Check out a minute or two of their fun-filled vow exchange!

This all-inclusive package includes Elvis singing “Viva Las Vegas!” and two other songs performed live, flowers, photography and video, plus round-trip limo service from your Strip or Downtown hotel. You’ll have your names in lights on our marquee for a fabulous photo-op after your ceremony, too! We probably don’t even need to mention that the Elvis Blue Hawaii is also our most popular wedding vow renewal package! It has a special elegance, and yet the ceremony is very casual, so we encourage sarongs, Hawaiian shirts, beachwear and sandals. Getting married barefoot works, too!

Please call us with any of your questions about our unique Blue Hawaii wedding package. Our staff can suggest upgrades like exotic orchid leis or a wedding cake packaged to-go. This is one wedding you might want to stream live online to friends and family back home–they will be sorry to miss being here in person!

How to Exchange Rings at Your Viva Las Vegas Wedding

What you need to know about the “ring part” of your Viva Las Vegas ceremony

One of the last things on wedding couples’ minds is their ACTUAL wedding ceremony at Viva Las Vegas. Most remember to BRING the rings to the chapel, but hardly anyone gives much thought to how things work during the vow exchange itself. Here are a few answers to commonly-asked questions, to smoothly get you through that part of your wedding. We’ve also included a couple of cool suggestions, for those who want to customize their ring exchanges.

1. If the bride is wearing her engagement ring to the chapel, she should remove it and place it on the ring finger of her right hand before the wedding. That way, the wedding band will go on the left hand during the vows, closest to her heart. (In Roman times, it was said that the blood vessel leading to the heart ran through that finger, thus, the ring was symbolically closer to the heart, too.) Once the excitement of the wedding has died down, the bride can place her hunky rock of an engagement ring on top. If the two of you are exchanging simple wedding bands, you can skip this part altogether.

2. Be sure to give the rings to your attendants or appointed “ring person” before you arrive at the chapel. Or…WHEN you arrive is even better. You want to be very sure the rings get here…If the worst happens and the rings are left in your hotel room, or–back in Milwaukee–we can still perform your wedding and just “fake” the ring part. It’s been done…And then you’ll have a story to tell! If it’s just the two of you, wear your soulmate’s ring on your thumb or pinkie until that part of the ceremony.

3. No rings? Some couples prefer not to exchange rings at all. Or, in some countries, one ring is the norm. That’s fine. Your wedding coordinator will ask first, and your minister (or Elvis or wacky impersonator “minister”) will know just what to do.

Wedding ring exchange tips
Make sure your ring hand is ready for a close-up! Lotion works, and helps with getting rings on and off, too!

4. If you are renewing vows, you can re-exchange your original rings–if they still come off—or, your wedding officiant will have you just clasp your hand over the ring. (Hint: Some grooms, when renewing vows on a big anniversary, will replace the original ring with a NEW one, as a surprise. This is one of the most touching tributes we see at the chapel!)

5. For some fun weddings or vow renewals, we have seen lollipop rings, or some couples have chosen to tattoo rings on the third finger. It is becoming more common for couples to do what suits them, beginning their own wedding tradition.

As always, if you have questions about any aspect of your upcoming wedding ceremony, give us a call anytime at 702-384-0771 or chat online with a helpful staff member at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com

Our 50s diner has an aisle for the bride to make her entrance…between the soda counter and the camp decor! Sliders and ice cream soda reception optional….
Our Doo Wop diner is full of 50’s memorabilia, and many couples arrive dressed reminiscent of the era. (Break out those saddle oxfords and poodle skirts!) We arrange all the stools, chairs and tables so that guests have a great view as the bride strolls down the aisle between soda counter and authentic decor. Add “Marilyn” or “Priscilla” (or come dressed that way yourself), or request extra songs or music to customize your nuptials. There is a small up-charge for each extra, just ask for a quote. An intimate diner-style reception is available as an upgrade to your package, or you can add a simple champagne toast with cake, if you like.

Check out this Doo Wop Diner ceremony/vow renewal in the video clip below. If it’s just the two of you, it’s a quirky yet intimate way to do it up!
