Last week we at Viva Las Vegas Weddings told you about our brand new, reimagined website! And from its pages, we offered up the first eight of sixteen reasons couples choose us for their Elvis, Themed or Traditional Las Vegas Weddings. We hope that as you plan YOUR Las Vegas Wedding, you’ll find our redesigned website even easier to navigate and select from. And today, here are more ways we strive to make yours a seamless, dreamlike wedding experience from beginning to end:

9. You can include a honeymoon package in Las Vegas or Mexico with your Viva Las Vegas Wedding!
Include a stay at the luxurious Viva Suite at the Palms Resort and Casino, or an exotic honeymoon villa in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, owned and maintained by Viva Las Vegas Weddings. We’ll make all the arrangements!

10. Elvis can drive you right down the aisle in a ’64 pink Cadillac convertible!
Need we say more? You simply can’t make a more dramatic wedding entrance than this. Only at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel! This is one wedding you, and your guests, will never forget. What if Elvis is not your thing? Book a Harley Davidson wedding and drive your bike right through our doors to the altar at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel. Our doors are literally open to your ideas for a grand wedding entrance.

We offer the BEST Elvis wedding entrance EVER!

11. We have the BEST Elvis impersonators in Las Vegas!
Every one of our fantastic Elvis tribute artists has an extensive singing and performance background. Just about anyone can put on the jumpsuit, sideburns and glasses. But our Elvis’s not only look the part, our couples often tell us that they’re astounded by what GREAT singers they are! Goosebumps guaranteed!

12. Your wedding can be streamed live online, plus you can view archived video and wedding photos online.
Even though family and friends would LOVE to come to Vegas for your ceremony, sometimes not everyone can be present in person. But, in any of our chapels it’s possible for your wedding to be streamed live and online around the world! In addition, you and your guests will be able to order wedding photos online on our website for a year or more after your wedding date. Our digital technologies help make friends and family feel included in your special Las Vegas wedding. Not only that, your wedding guests are always welcome to take their own photos from their seats during your wedding ceremony here at Viva Las Vegas Weddings.

13. You’ll receive a unique (and free) Wedding Website/Wedding Invitation where you can blog, post photos, and stream your live wedding to family and friends back home.
A Viva extra! At the time of booking, you’ll get access to your very own wedding website to help you use all the social media to let everyone know about your upcoming wedding. You can customize the page however you like. Your “online wedding guests” will be able to watch your ceremony streamed live, right on that page!

14. We have our own floral shop, digital photo lab, costume and tux rental shop, limousine fleet—and three beautiful reception halls.
We are a full-service wedding chapel. Want a simple reception or a full on sit down dinner after your ceremony? We can do that, too. We are able to customize your bouquet, provide you with costumes for any of our fun themed weddings, all the while our photographers are hard at work getting your wedding pictures processed for online viewing. We have every element of your wedding organized and compartmentalized, so that we can run like a well-oiled machine. That’s what makes your ceremony feel unhurried and relaxed, despite any wedding jitters you may be feeling otherwise. We try very hard to make you feel like yours is the only wedding we’re performing all day. You’ll even receive an online wedding invitation page where you can blog, post photos, and where your loved ones can view your wedding live online.

Vegas Wedding Marquee
Only at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel do couples get a photo op like this!

15. Your names will appear in lights on the Las Vegas Strip after your ceremony!
It’s a Viva Las Vegas Weddings exclusive. After you say your vows, our photographer will take you out front of the Main Chapel, where your names will be in lights on our marquee. Your guests can take pictures along with our professional photographer. Clearly, it’s the best photo op in town! If you’re renewing your vows for a special anniversary, we’ll put that up in lights, too! It’s your day to be stars in Las Vegas!

16. The answer is always “Yes!”
At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, we consider it an honor to be included in your special day. Everyone here is eager to help you with all of your wedding dreams and plans. If you don’t see something on our website, please feel free to ask us if we can make it happen for you. Need advice on where to stay, where to dine on your wedding night, or just want us to play “your” song as you walk down the aisle? We’ll do whatever we possibly can to make your wedding day shine forever in memory.

Which Elvis Married YOU at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel?

Elvis Weddings Vegas
Chapel owner Ron Decar has been marrying couples as Elvis in Las Vegas for more than 20 years!

Not everyone gets married by Elvis at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, although most do! Our Traditional and Themed weddings are nearly as popular, although Elvis seems to be the real draw at our chapel. We thought we’d take the time to introduce you to some of our “Elvi”—If you’ve married here or renewed your vows in the last few years, one of these faces may be familiar!

Chapel owner Ron Decar (above) does a pretty mean Elvis, but he’s also a licensed minister. (He’ll appear in a very different suit when he marries traditional wedding couples.) For our themed wedding packages, you may have seen Ron as James Bond, Austin Powers, Dracula, Zombie Elvis, The Godfather, Merlin, Darth Vader,Gomez Addams…the list goes on and on. Ron has a very fun, and VERY busy life! For many years Ron appeared at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas as lead singer in the Folies Bergere, also enjoying a notable national singing career…before he was Elvis…or Reverend Ron!

Elvis wedding chapel
Roland August lends a lot of energy and warmth to his Elvis weddings here at Viva Las Vegas Chapel!

Roland August (above) might be described as our most enthusiastic Elvis. If he is/was YOUR Elvis, you’ll remember him always for making you feel comfortable and going out of his way to personalize your ceremony and make it feel special. Roland, too, had a spectacular singing career before he was bitten by the Elvis bug in Vegas! Roland sometimes makes an appearance as a “hunky dude” in our Egyptian, Western or Beach Party themed weddings.

Outdoor Elvis wedding
Michael Conti brings The King to life in our indoor AND outdoor Evlis weddings!

Michael Conti (above) hails from Texas. He was having a “normal” career as a singer when someone told him he sounded like Elvis…and kinda looked like him, too. It may come as no surprise that many Elvis’s in Vegas wound up here because they were told the very same thing. And none of them would give it up for anything. Believe us when we say, marrying folks as Elvis is the BEST job ever! Michael is also featured in our Bluez Brothers and Rock’n Roll Themed Weddings.

Mini-Elvis is not in our “regular rotation” of Elvi, but we can special order for a unique take on an Elvis Wedding in Vegas!

Mini-Elvis is not on our staff, but he can be called in to do the honors as an upgrade if you’re looking for a REALLY unique Elvis Wedding. For more information on any of our Elvis Wedding Packages, give us a call at 702-384-0771 or visit us and chat online at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com !

July 4th Weddings in Las Vegas–Traditional Fireworks or Sparkle with Elvis!

4th of July Elvis wedding
A 4th of July wedding with Elvis in Vegas is guaranteed to sizzle!

Time to book your 4th of July Wedding Special if you’re coming to Las Vegas for an Independence Day wedding! We have packages starting at $225 that include your basic flowers and photography and even Elvis as minister! You can also choose a traditional wedding ceremony. (Mmmmmm….we’ve got a large number of red white and blue sequined vests back in our costume shop….) You can be as patriotic as you like at your July 4th wedding or wedding vow renewal ceremony.

Choose from a cool indoor ceremony in our Main Chapel or in our sassy 50’s retro Doo-Wop Diner. You also can book an outdoor summer wedding with us. They are more popular than you would think, with typical Las Vegas temperatures being what they are in July! Still, our Garden and Gazebo chapels are sheltered from the sun by lush greenery and a canopy of cooling mist. They’re perfect for a nighttime wedding under the stars, too. (Or under the fireworks!)

Outdoor Vegas wedding
A Gazebo Wedding under romantic twinkling lights creates summer wedding memories!

Call us for details. Due to the gigantic fireworks displays on the Strip at 9pm, there may be some restrictions you’ll want to know about as far as transportation, parking and the like. We’ll navigate you through an exciting 4th of July wedding day, though. When you call to book, ask us about ways you can customize your 4th of July wedding—red white and blue flowers or ribbons? Special patriotic recessional music? Let us know and we’ll see what we can do!

For more information on our 4th of July wedding specials, click here or call us at 702-384-0771:


What to Expect When You Renew Your Wedding Vows with Elvis

Elvis vows in Vegas
Lee marries Lee all over again with The King!

Just a little shy of their 30th anniversary, Lee and Lee (no wonder they seemed like two peas in a pod!) renewed wedding vows with Elvis this week. What was remarkable to us, though, is that they seemed just as much in love as any couple getting married for the first time. Here’s what they had to say about their event on their Viva Las Vegas wedding website:

“Hey friends! You know we’ve always marched to our own drum and that’s often off of the beaten path. So it is with our wedding vow renewal. While we had thought about doing this on our 30th anniversary, the opportunity presented itself this year and it’s close enough to August 9th, in our opinion. Together we’ve made it this far and what better way to celebrate than to have a not real wedding in the town of not real stuff with the officiant not a real Elvis? This craziness is precisely what makes us so good together.”

Wedding chapel vow renewal
Stroll down the aisle together, have Elvis escort the bride, or let your bride make her own entrance like your first wedding!

We’d have to say, we agree. They WERE great together, dancing in a tight embrace while Elvis sang “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” The best part about a wedding vow renewal with Elvis? Come as you are! Or, wear your original wedding duds, if they still fit. When it’s your second wedding, you can do things your own way. You can even book an Elvis Blue Hawaii themed wedding and wear Hawaiian shirts and sarongs, if you like!

80's wedding vow renewal

Whether you come to the chapel, just the two of you, to renew vows with Elvis, or whether you bring along a ton of friends and family, or even if you spring a surprise wedding vow renewal on your spouse for an anniversary present, you are sure to have the most memorable fun since your first wedding! Choose from our simplest Elvis wedding package, like a ceremony in our 50’s Doo Wop Diner with Elvis singing two songs, or order up the incomparable Elvis Pink Caddy Wedding where The King drives you right down the aisle. Whatever Elvis wedding you choose, you won’t soon forget the time you said “I Do” all over again in Vegas. For more info and choices for your Las Vegas wedding vow renewal, visit us at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com !

All our best wishes go out to Lee and Lee for a wonderful anniversary. It would be okay with us if we see you again next year to do it all over for the “real” 30th! 🙂

Renewing Wedding Vows with a Whole Family of Elvises

lil and dave renew vows with elvis
Make it a family affair when renewing your wedding vows in Vegas with Elvis!

On your 10th anniversary, you want to celebrate the wonderful milestone in your marriage, and a trip to Las Vegas fills the bill! Lil and Dave from So. California celebrated their own 10th anniversary last week by renewing their vows with Elvis in our Viva Las Vegas Weddings Main Chapel. This fun-loving bunch took it a step farther, though. Dave and their six-and-seven-year-old sons dressed at Elvis, too. That’s a LOT of white jumpsuit!

The family brought a bevy of Hawaiian-shirted friends and family for their Elvis Blue Hawaii ceremony, our most popular wedding package for not only renewals, but for first weddings, too.

Zombie Elvis wedding
Our seasonal special- request Zombie Elvis brings in a lot of bride and groom zombies–and a lot of zombie guests. Kinda goes without saying.

Don’t look good in a jumpsuit? Hey, it’s October, and we’re doing a LOT of Gothic and graveyard themed weddings with Dracula, Grim Reaper all month long. But, our latest craze is the Zombie Elvis as minister, and your zombie Halloween costume can double as wedding duds at this time of year. (We’ve had some gorgeous zombie brides, believe it or not, dangling brains and all!)

Your Zombie Elvis or “regular” Elvis can perform your ceremony, indoors or out. ( October is THE most glorious weather month in Vegas for an Outdoor Gazebo or Garden wedding.) At Viva Las Vegas, we love to offer fun choices that inspire you to add your own special touches. Dress up the whole family and come celebrate your anniversary with us! Best wishes for many more years of happiness to Lil and Dave and family! See you in another 10!

A Viva Las Vegas Wedding Valentine

A Sweet Valentine...

Ms. Valentine just got married, she is now happily Mrs.Carter! You too, may have a beautiful and affordable ceremony and feel as if you went to Paris for your romantic getaway. Pictured here is my Bride of the week Mrs.Carter. This gorgeous Bride and her Groom stayed at the Paris hotel as you can see. The Paris hotel has so many stunning photo opportunities. In fact, I myself, could not resist as I arrived to chauffeur this stunning Bride to the chapel. Isn’t she beautiful?

Viva Las Vegas Weddings has many choices for you beautiful Brides to be. We offer indoor and outdoor ceremonies, and we truly are the leaders in wedding celebrations here in Las Vegas. We also provide Vow Renewals, Commitment Ceremonies and Themed Ceremonies that will knock your socks off.

Our lovely Mrs., added a “First Look”  service to her ceremony. This is where the Bride is picked up separately from her Groom. They are only reunited once the lovely Bride walks down the aisle. It is always a breathtaking moment worth choosing. To view our many ceremony packages go to www.VivaLasVegasWeddings.com or give us a call at 702-384-0771.
