Egyptian wedding Vegas
The next best thing to being wed along the banks of the Nile!

Egyptian weddings in Las Vegas aren’t just for Indiana Jones fans or anthropologists anymore. Our Egyptian-themed wedding package is exotic and sexy, with smoke effects, golden sarcophagi and Egyptian artifacts, and King Tut as minister. The bride is even carried down the aisle on Cleopatra’s throne by two Egyptian slave boys. Tell your guests to toga-up, too. (This Las Vegas wedding is perfect if you’re staying at Caesars Palace or the Luxor, by the way…) We DO rent costumes, or wear your own. Even traditional bridal attire works for our themed weddings, since they include the costumed characters. You’ll even have an Egyptian dancing girl as bridesmaid!

Cleopatra's throne Wedding
Here comes the bride!

The Egyptian Wedding package includes theatrical lights, fog/smoke effects, ethnic music, candlelight, photography, flowers, video coverage, and round-trip limousine service from your Las Vegas or downtown hotel. You can even ask to have your wedding streamed live online for friends and family who can’t make it to “Egypt” for your unique nuptials along the Nile. If you want to add a touch of the wacky, there’s no reason you can’t add Elvis to sing a song during the candle lighting…You can request Elvis in the gold lamé jacket to complement King Tut’s headdress!

Las Vegas weddings and our Marriage Bureau made the news last week when the 10,000th same-sex marriage license was issued in Clark County since the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals legalized same-sex marriage in the State of Nevada.The Marriage Bureau in Las Vegas began issuing licenses to same-sex couples in October of 2014.

Since the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel opened nearly 20 years ago, we’ve performed all of our Traditional, Elvis and Themed weddings as commitment ceremonies to all couples who wished to join their lives together but could not have legal documentation. Since 2014, we’ve been delighted to welcome ALL couples who wish to be legally wed in Las Vegas. (And, as always, we still do many, many wedding vow renewals and commitment ceremonies, which don’t require a license at all.)

Here’s a link to our local newspaper’s coverage of the story: https://lasvegassun.com/news/2017/jan/20/10000th-same-sex-marriage-license-issued-in-clark
