Big 80’s hair, hippie duds or poodle skirts….We’ll marry you in the decade of your choice!

Whether you want a traditional marriage ceremony centered around elements that remind you of your favorite era, or whether you want a wild and wooly themed wedding set in the 50’s, 50’s, 70’s or 80’s with a wacky character “minister,” Viva Las Vegas Weddings has got you covered! These decade-themed weddings are great for anniversary wedding vow renewals, too. Wear your original wedding finery, and have your guests dress in the fashions of the time. Groovy, man!

Choose the “minister” that’s just right for the period…Liberace, Tom Jones, Austin Powers, James Bond, Alice Cooper, Lucy and Ricky Ricardo… We have impersonators and tribute artists galore. They may sing and/or play instruments, plus do the honors for your vows, of course. It’s all in a day’s work at our wedding chapel! We’ll bring out the disco lights, smoke effects, and whatever is needed to accompany your wedding tunes from the Top 40 of the day.

Your guests will love dressing up for your 60’s or 70’s wedding, too!

If you and your guests wear clothing reminiscent of the decade, the zanier the better. We even rent costumes! This is especially fun if friends and family back home are going to be watching your ceremony live and streaming on the Internet. Don’t forget the crazy wigs!

We even offer a retro 1950’s Doo Wop Diner Chapel if the 50’s is your thing. The Diner Chapel is also equipped with webcam for Internet viewing of your nifty ceremony. Want a reception afterward? Viva Las Vegas has Doo Wop Diner casual reception packages featuring hot dogs, sliders, and ice cream treats!

Most of our era- themed weddings take place in our Main Chapel, the largest freestanding wedding chapel in Las Vegas. It’s the only chapel in Las Vegas equipped with theatrical lights and sound, smoke effects, and all the sets and props necessary to create the perfect ambiance.

Weddings in Vegas: What Happens After the Kiss!

Once the vows are said at a Viva Las Vegas wedding, most couples will glide right back down the aisle in all their married glory. If the ceremony involves Elvis or a glitzy themed impersonator, bride and groom also cut a rug while being serenaded in the height of Vegas style. A few especially exuberant couples, however, burst into a dance number from their favorite musical. No matter how under-rehearsed, this is a sure-fire way to get the party started, or at least to dumbfound friends and family watching on the Internet.

Just give us a little advance warning, and we’ll cue your music after you’ve sealed your vows with a kiss. (You bring the choreography and dancing guests. Or? We may be able to accommodate you with a few willing participants on our staff.) At Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, we’re here to make your wedding day YOURS alone, even if that means you’re doing the singing and dancing and Elvis is playing back-up.
