Best FIVE Ways to Get Married at Viva Las Vegas Weddings!

Outdoor Vegas wedding
Chances are you’ll find the BEST wedding for you among these suggestions!

Outdoor or indoor wedding? Daytime or evening wedding? Formal or very casual? Elvis or traditional? Not sure which wedding to choose after looking at our Viva Las Vegas Weddings website (www.vivalasvegasweddings.com) ?

Here are some suggestions for the BEST ceremonies to select from, based on the style of wedding that suits the two of YOU:

BEST BAREFOOT WEDDINGS

Always wanted to get married barefoot on the beach? In Vegas, the next best thing is our Elvis Blue Hawaii Wedding, or our Beach Party Wedding. You’ll have Elvis or a wacky tripped-out ’60s beachcomber as minister. Either choice is great for casual weddings, shoes optional, beachwear optional. Still, both of these themed weddings include your flowers, photography, round-trip limo service, music and beach mist… Sandals more your thing? Our Egyptian Themed Wedding calls for a toga party, or exotic costumes evoking the age of Anthony and Cleopatra.

Beach WEdding in Las Vegas
Our Beach Party wedding–come as you are, or as you’d be on the sands of Waikiki!

BEST EVENING WEDDINGS

Choose our Outdoor Garden or Gazebo packages by night for a romantic atmosphere, lit by twinkling white lights in the lush foliage. In our Main Chapel, our best candlelit ceremonies are our Phantom of the Opera Themed Wedding and our sultry and sophisticated James Bond Themed Wedding. Of course, you can opt for a more traditional wedding with the candles, adding our theatrical fog for a romantic flair. Just ask for any options that create the mood you’ll always remember for your wedding night.

Outdoor Evening Vegas wedding
TWO romantically lit outdoor chapels to choose from for your evening ceremony!

BEST BARGAIN WEDDINGS

Check out our Simplicity Wedding, Daytime Gazebo Wedding, or Elvis in our Doo Wop Diner packages. These start at around $300 and include all your basics. ALL of our weddings include elements that are unexpected, and settings that, while simple, are elegant and/or unique!

BEST LOCATION WEDDINGS

Hands down, getting married by Elvis at the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign can’t be beat. Choose a sunset wedding for flattering photos with the light of Las Vegas coming on in the distance! If you want a more natural landscape, our Beautiful Red Rock Canyon Wedding package includes everything, whisking you to a gorgeous spot just outside of Las Vegas to be married against a stunning backdrop. Each of these packages includes limo, flowers, photography and minister, all waiting for you at the location.

Elvis Vegas Sign wedding
The ultimate in Las Vegas outdoor weddings….and with Elvis!

BEST WEDDING SURPRISE

Our unique Elvis Pink Cadillac Wedding is also our most popular…just ’cause where else can you be driven INTO the chapel and down the aisle by Elvis in his vintage convertible? We also have fabulous sports car entrances in our James Bond 007 Wedding Package, our Pink Diamond (read: Panther) Package, and you can even ride in on a Harley!

Here’s the BEST wedding entrance you could make!

Best Las Vegas Wedding Dates for 2017!

Outdoor wedding Vegas
Spring and Fall are best for planning your outdoor Garden or Gazebo weddings with us!

Yikes, if you’re planning a Las Vegas wedding, 2017 is right around the corner! Often the date you book for your wedding here has much to do with your personal schedules, but if you are open and flexible, here are some that are sure to be popular choices!

Repeating digits (like 12-12-12 and 11-11-11) have been the most memorable, record-breaking weddings dates in the past at Las Vegas wedding chapels. This year, 1-17-17, 1-7-17 and 7-17-17 should be off the charts. Or at least, they’re as close as we get to repeating dates in the coming year. Many people think they’re lucky numbers that bode well for a happy life together. Others just find it’s easier to remember anniversaries that way!

Then of course there’s Valentine’s Day, the number one most popular wedding date in Las Vegas and all across the country. Book early! Our Main Chapel, plus our outdoor Garden and Gazebo Chapels will be filled with romance and couples tying the knot on this international day of LOVE! We usually start early in the morning and do weddings non-stop until midnight! Many February 14th weddings will be Traditional, but Elvis weddings are a close second among Valentine-marrying couples.

Elvis birthday wedding
Get married and have a mini reception in our Doo Wop Diner on Elvis’s birthday!

Elvis fans also choose Elvis’s birthday (January 8th) or Elvis and Priscilla’s wedding day (May 1st) to get married in one of our Elvis Wedding Packages. You can even tie the knot in our 1950’s era Doo Wop Diner, if you prefer!

Gothic and Graveyard Themed Weddings are big for Halloween, but October 2017 also has a Friday the 13th, a day that typically finds us setting up the ‘chapel graveyard’ and brings out Dracula and the Rocky’s Horror musical themed weddings.

St. Patrick's Day wedding in Las Vegas
By special request—A Leprechaun wedding for St. Patrick’s Day!
Gothic, Graveyard, scary weddings are the thing for Friday the 13th...We'll even do Beetlejuice!
Gothic, Graveyard, and very scary weddings are the thing for Friday the 13th…We’ll even do Beetlejuice-themed weddings!

St. Patrick’s Day has become a big day for us for fun-filled themed weddings, and of course April Fool’s finds us doing crazy wedding vow reveals and even SURPRISE weddings or renewal-of-vows ceremonies. Be creative, as long as you’re planning ahead for a wedding in 2017!

If you need help planning for your wedding in the New Year ahead, give us a call at 702-384-0771, or live chat with us on our website at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com

Our very own Viva Las Vegas Weddings General Manager, Brian–most recognized around here as Elvis, a Bluez Brother, a Beatle, a Gangster, a Pharaoh, a Starship Captain, Darth Vader, a Wizard,”Johnny Cash,” a Pirate, a Viking–has been given the tremendous honor of being named one of Las Vegas’ Top 100 Men of Success by MyVegasMagazine.com!

This happened several weeks back, but Brian’s award has been modestly buried on his desk until co-workers pried the scoop out of him. Readers of MyVegasMagazine nominated and voted on men that are making a difference in Las Vegas through service, commitment, charitable contributions and big, big hearts. According to the magazine, nominees included men who “give more than they receive.” Importantly, too, the men nominated were those who help make Las Vegas a fascinating place to live and work. And Brian truly does just that! Other nominees came from the worlds of gaming, finance, politics, entertainment, the arts and government.

Brian brings creative and unexpected touches to every ceremony, making sure your weddings and receptions are unforgettable. Somehow Brian makes it look easy, but he very seldom rests.

Which is why we’re tooting his horn a bit, too! Congratulations to Brian for this well-deserved award. We’re pretty sure he’s earned it 100 times over!

(Note: Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel owner Ron Decar made this list as well! Again, this guy is so humble that he never brought it up around us, either. Come on, you guys! Thumbs up and a pat on the back to the genius behind Viva Las Vegas Weddings! And, BTW, Ron is the second Beatle from the left…)
