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.

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!

Going to the Chapel in Vegas? Go HERE first!

Marriage license vegas
A trip to the Marriage Bureau is in order before Elvis (or a ‘regular minister’) can help you tie the knot!

If you’re getting legally married in Las Vegas, you’ll need to go downtown to the Marriage Bureau here to get your license beforehand.(If you’re doing a wedding vow renewal, you can skip the whole thing–easy!) The Marriage Bureau in Las Vegas is located at the northwest corner of Clark Avenue and Third Street, or 201 Clark Avenue. The Marriage Bureau accepts cash only, so be prepared. See the helpful link below to find all the details and how to get there:

how to get your marriage license in Vegas
The Marriage Bureau—no waiting period, no blood tests. And don’t forget to bring your license to the chapel so we can make it legal!

http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/Depts/clerk/Services/pages/MarriageLicenses.aspx

If you want express line service at the Marriage Bureau when you arrive to get your license, click on the Marriage Pre-Application on their website above, to be completed for both parties. Print and bring these forms with you when you go to get your license. You’ll both need ID’s and you’ll both need to be present. Check the Marriage Bureau site for details on all other requirements.

Once you have your license in hand, be sure to have it with you (and your rings, of course!) upon arrival at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel. Wedding vow renewals won’t require a license. And remember, same-sex marriages are legal and warmly welcomed at our chapel!

Elvis wedding vegas
Even if you get married by Elvis, a licensed minister will be on hand to help your though the legal stuff at the time of your ceremony!

Your minister (even if you’re getting married by Elvis, a licensed minister will pronounce you as legally wedded for the purposes of the State of Nevada) will explain how to get copies of your marriage certificate. All of our Viva Las Vegas Weddings require a $60 cash only minister’s fee, to be paid at the time of your ceremony. The minister will take care of recording your marriage, as part of his or her services to you on your wedding day. Las Vegas wedding chapel minister services are not included in your Viva Las Vegas wedding package price.

If you’re not a U.S. resident, you can still get married in Las Vegas. Many countries will require a certified copy of the marriage certificate and as apostille from the Nevada Secretary of State. Your minister will help you with questions on how to do this. You might also get in touch with your country’s Consulate in the States to confirm what you’ll need.

For more marriage license information, call (702) 671-0600. Marriage License Bureau hours are 8 a.m. to midnight seven days a week, including holidays.

For information on one of our amazing Elvis, Themed or Tradtional Wedding packages, or to ask questions about getting your marriage license in Las Vegas, give us a call at (702) 384-0771. Or you can visit us online at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com

Elvis Weddings: Top Things to Know About Las Vegas

Wedding flowers Las Vegas
Allergic to roses? On Valentine’s Day, one bride was, and she upgraded to this gorgeous bouquet of lilies!

We here at Viva Las Vegas Weddings have gotten another wild, fun and crazy onslaught of Valentine’s Day traditional and Elvis weddings! Whew! We had to bring in extra Elvi to cover all the Elvis ceremonies! Plus, our florists made up over 100 be-ribboned wedding bouquets, and we had all of our chapels running non-stop for 15 hours! One Elvis wedding featured FOUR couples re-tying the knot in a wedding vow renewal ceremony, and we had limos and Pink Cadillacs delivering brides and grooms to the chapel until nearly midnight. But we’d do it all over again in a minute. It was a total blast here!

The weather for Valentine’s Day weddings was absolute perfection—sunny, calm and in the 70’s. All the couples who married in our outdoor wedding chapels, the Garden AND the Gazebo, were thrilled! It could not have been a more beautiful day for February, or any other month for that matter. Our Valentine’s wedding couples came (mostly with lots of guests) from as far away as Australia to tie the knot on this special day.
