Even if you haven’t booked a Gangster Themed Wedding at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, join us the First Friday in May at Viva Las Vegas Event Center. We’ll have a live Big Band playing all the hits from the era, swing dance lessons, and a yummy selection of food and drink.

The fun begins with professionally-taught swing dance lessons at 6pm, followed by dining and dancing until 9pm. The $25 cover charge gets you in and includes the lesson. After that, we’ll suggest some of our great drink and gourmet food selections, a la carte. Stuff yourself, or eat light, whatever makes your evening perfect. (Food and drink specials are an extra charge.)

This event will take place every First Friday through summer. So, wedding couples who plan ahead might consider combining Gangster or Elvis (or other) wedding package with a night of romance and dancing. The Event Center is right next door to the wedding chapel, so if it’s just the two of you, or just you and a few family members, the Big Band experience can double as a kind of impromtu ‘reception.’

Of course, we also host pre-planned wedding receptions of all sizes, both in our intimate reception room and in the Event Center. It all depends on the size of your wedding party and the degree of elaborateness of your wedding reception. We have almost TOO many choices. For more information on our weddings and receptions, visit us at

Take a peek at the fun at our last Big Band night at Viva Las Vegas. And we hope we’ll see you there on May 2nd!

Sisters Ellie and Amy Smith are producing the event as part of charitably-spirited fundraising for the Miss Nevada competition/scholarship program. The siblings will soon compete for the titles of Miss Nevada and Miss Nevada Outstanding Teen, respectively. At seventeen, Ellie is the reigning Miss Northeast Nevada. Sister Amy, 15, was recently crowned Miss Northwest Nevada Outstanding Teen. It goes without saying, that’s a lot of beauty and poise in one family!
