Celebrate National Extraterrestrial Abduction Day with an Area 51-Themed Wedding in Vegas!3

Alien Wedding Las Vegas
Amy and Scott tied the knot in their pj’s after their ‘alien abduction.”

Who knew? March 20th will be National Alien Abduction Day, so what better time to elope to Vegas and do a honeymoon tour of nearby Area 51? Amy and Scott were the first to do this, wearing their pajamas and slippers to their one-of-a-species Las Vegas wedding ceremony. Like UFO’s, the wedding is not on our website “radar” but we’re happy to customize our Intergalactic Wedding with a space alien minister, green lights and fog, and all the other frills. We can even provide a strange metallic wedding bouquet…just let us know what YOU want!

Amy and Scott eloped to Vegas awhile back, just the two of them, and were wed amidst candlelight, smoke, and space-y music. Their alien minister had to use the universal translator to be understood during the vow exchange. This female creature from space had to watch the time, though, since she was due back at Area 51 to catch her ship on its way out of the galaxy. We can’t remember when we’ve ever had so much fun, or when we saw two people so very much in love. WE loved every minute and still have fond memories of this unique wedding!

Lighting the “candles of burning passion” before the mating dance of Zabevief 5

Scott and Amy exchanged lighted lollipop rings and joined in on an alien celebration dance, a ritual on the planet Zabevief 5. Hey, thank goodness the Intergalactic Wedding package includes photos and video coverage, for evidence later that it really took place!

Check out all of our themed and traditional or Elvis weddings at If you don’t find a wedding that’s quite right for you, do what Scott and Amy did, and invent your own. We’d be delighted to help.

Wishing Amy and Scott all the best wishes in the universe for a lifetime of fun and love ahead!

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.

Star Wars Characters of the 501st Legion — Guests at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel!

Star Wars-ish wedding in Vegas
Our Intergalactic Themed Wedding with Darth Vader Minister, and 501st Legion Guests!

Our popular Intergalactic Themed wedding lets brides and grooms choose from their favorite sci-fi characters, captains, or creatures. They can select a “minister” from among their favorites, too. Populate the particular universe you want for your wedding day by letting us know what movie or TV series you’re going for. Recently, Jennifer and John got married in Vegas in an incredible Intergalactic Themed Wedding attended by costumed guests, all decked out as Star Wars figures.

The wedding party consisted of members of the 501st Legion, an international fan-based organization that constructs and wears exact replicas of stormtrooper, bounty hunter, Sith Lord, and other characters and villains from Star Wars films. They are all-volunteer and the 501st boasts over 8,000 members around the world. They own over 11,000 costumes as a group, all approved for appearances at charitable events and hospitals, often at the request of Lucasfilm’s Events Department. When a pair of their own got married, our Intergalactic Wedding was clearly the way to go.

Back to the Future Wedding with DeLorean Time Machine!

Marty drives into the wedding chapel in the DeLorean Time Machine!

An incredible Back to the Future Themed Wedding was DEFINITELY the highlight of 10/21/15 here at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel! Vanessa and Nicholas tied the knot with “Doc Brown” in an unbelievable wedding ceremony that featured a gorgeous gull-wing DeLorean being driven down the aisle by “Marty McFly” in a cloud of smoke and flashing light.

This was one of our amazing custom weddings, tricked out to the last detail at the request of the couple. We’re not really sure whether we had more fun or they did! The local news media were on hand to film and interview Vanessa and Nicholas after the ceremony, too, it being such a monumental day in film history. Although the Chicago Cubs are no longer contenders for the World Series title, we still couldn’t have had a better day!

Nicholas, Vanessa and Doc Brown as minister!

Nicholas and Vanessa describe themselves as “geeky fans of Back to the Future.” They planned the wedding far in advance while on a camping trip. When the subject of a significant wedding date came up, the time traveling date from the movie happened to be be, relatively, right around the corner…Brilliant idea and perfect timing, you two!

Vanessa and Nicholas also said they wanted a low stress wedding, and this seemed like it would be fun to do, especially since many of their married friends have said to them, “We should have gotten married in Vegas.” They also said they wanted to do “something nobody else was doing.” And Viva Las Vegas Weddings seems to be the place for that!
