Elvis would be celebrating his 82nd birthday this week on January 8th. As always, The King of Rock ‘n Roll will be foremost in our thoughts as we perform our many Elvis wedding ceremonies for couples who are dedicated fans, or who just enjoy the light-hearted nostalgia surrounding the memory of the legendary performer.

Elvis birthday wedding
Don’t forget your Elvis cake and cake-topper to go!

Elvis’s birthday has always been a popular wedding day here at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel. It may be too late to book your wedding ceremony or vow renewal for Elvis’s birthday this year, but if you’re planning a spring wedding and are huge Elvis fans, May 1st will be the anniversary of Elvis and Priscilla’s wedding. What a great excuse to arrange an Elvis Pink Caddy or Elvis Blue Hawaii wedding in Las Vegas! Elvis and his bride were married at the old Aladdin Hotel (now Planet Hollywood) in Las Vegas. Many couples dress up as Elvis and Priscilla for their kitschy wedding at Viva Las Vegas’s Main Chapel, or in our fantastic 1950s Doo Wop Diner Chapel. If you don’t have your own costumes, we do rent them in our costume shop. For more casual weddings, we sell just the “shades with sideburns” and bridal veils, too. (Some brides may prefer to dress as “Marilyn.” We’ve got you covered with our wide range of themed costume choices.)

A Quirky Las Vegas Themed Wedding for Candice and Clinton!

Las Vegas Themed Wedding
Our Las Vegas Themed wedding has a bit of everything Vegas!

According to their Viva Las Vegas free wedding website, Candi and Clinton chose to get married in Las Vegas “because nothing about our life is traditional. We like to be crazy, out there, and we love to have fun, so what better place to get hitched than in Vegas with Elvis and Marilyn there to celebrate with us? 😉 …We would love to have all of our friends and family with us to celebrate– we know our wedding is short notice–which is why it will be broadcast LIVE via webcam!” These two took advantage of being able to get married in a Las Vegas ceremony that was less than traditional. While we do offer lovely traditional weddings at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, we also really love “different” weddings that show off the creative tastes of individual couples. Weddings can be meaningful, sincere, but still a lot of fun!

Candi and Clinton chose our Las Vegas Themed wedding, which includes bright lights, Elvis, a showgirl, “live gaming” during the ceremony, flowers, photography and round-trip limousine service. (The couple added our Marilyn impersonator to sing a song. We’re always happy to accommodate those special options that will make your wedding ceremony in Las Vegas perfect for YOU!

Las Vegas wedding couple
Dare to be different, and customize your Las Vegas wedding so that it is a reflection of who you are as a couple! Hats off to Candi and Clinton!

Candice looked fetching as a bride carrying red roses, and Clinton, all in black except for a red boutonniere, red high tops and bowtie (tied with difficulty, according to him) looked dashing as well. Their tiny daughter wore a red-sequined “Marilyn” outfit. Our staff were all cooing over her!

If you’d like more information on our Las Vegas Themed Wedding, or if you’d like to speak to a friendly wedding consultant about customizing your own Las Vegas wedding, populating it with legends or other features of your choice, visit us at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com where you can see all the options, chat online, or call us anytime at 702-384-0771. We are full of suggestions!

If you’re going for quirky (or even cheese-y) Vegas, add a spectacular pink Cadillac entrance into the chapel, a Tom Jones tribute artist, Marilyn impersonator, Liberace look-and-sound-alike, or even the Bluez Brothers. We’ve done customized Bonnie and Clyde themed weddings, weddings with vikings, vampires, even the Addams Family. In short, there’s not much we won’t do to make your wedding uniquely YOURS! Viva Las Vegas, and our best wishes go out to Candice and Clinton for a happy lifetime together!

Eighty Bridesmaids? At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, One Will Do the Job—Ask Marilyn!

Marilyn Bridesmaid
Marilyn’s Twin Sister? We’re almost convinced!

We were blown away by a bride in the news recently who had a grand total of 80 bridesmaids at her wedding. Don’t believe us? Check out the story from the UK, below:


For a more sensible and affordable wedding option, may we recommend ONE bridesmaid with the impact of 80? Add our fabulous Marilyn Monroe impersonator to your traditional, themed or Elvis wedding. We think it’s likely you won’t need the other 79 girlfriends (and their gowns!) to have the equivalent wow factor on your guests. At your request, she will perform a song or two, or even conduct the ceremony. www.vivalasvegasweddings.com/themed_wedding_package_starlett.htm

This week, a couple came all the way from France to have Marilyn and Elvis at their wedding vow renewal. We’ve shared a few moments at the conclusion of their ceremony here. The most fun we’ve had at one of these iconic weddings was the time ALL the wedding guests came dressed as movie stars and celebrities who have gone on to the great wedding chapel in the sky. At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, we believe in everything.
