Not a Fan of “Here Comes the Bride?” Songs for Walking Down the Aisle at Your Viva Las Vegas Wedding

Vegas Wedding Chapel
You can choose how you go down the aisle at Viva Las Vegas Weddings!

If you’ve chosen a more traditional (non-Elvis) wedding at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, you can still choose simple elements to customize your elegant yet-affordable wedding or wedding vow renewal. For example, not every bride wants to walk down the aisle–even in a more traditional wedding–to “Here Comes the Bride.” That’s no problem with us! Whether you get married in our enchanting Main Chapel or in one of our romantic outdoor chapels, you can substitute the music for something that is more “you.” Just let us know your preference for a particular song when you book your wedding. You can bring the CD with you, or make arrangements with us on the phone.

There are very good reasons you might want a special song choice for a wedding entrance: Some couples like to come down the aisle hand-in-hand. (So, naturally, “Here Comes the Bride” doesn’t really feel quite right, when the groom is coming, too!) For others, they have “their song” and it makes the ceremony all the more special to include it. You can even add an EXTRA song to dance to DURING the ceremony, or simply the full-length version of your “down the aisle” music. (Please let us know if you wish to have this upgrade. Many couples want to add it to make their wedding vows last a bit longer and to add to the romance factor!)

We can even arrange for you to “secretly” swap out “Here Comes the Bride” so it will be a surprise for the bride or groom. Let us know that, too, at the time of booking, so we can help guard the secret.

Las Vegas Weddings
Make your traditional Las Vegas wedding a bit more personal by selecting your own favorite music to be played!

If you want something truly unique, you can also upgrade and have “your song” sung live by one of our classically trained solo singers, male or female. If you have an instrumental tune in mind, we can provide a professional pianist or organist to play for you. (Additional charges may apply if not already included in your package.) Your guests’ eyes may fill with tears as you are lighting a unity candle during a performance of an emotionally touching song. Ask our friendly wedding planners about how to make this happen for you.

Five Ways to Make Your Las Vegas Wedding a Real Tear-Jerker

Your Forevermore Wedding Package includes a live singer, pianist or organist!

Sometimes tears are a good thing, like happy tears at weddings. That’s why at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel we’ve got kleenex hidden in the flowers and plants. Weepy brides and grooms, we’ve got you covered! While most of our Elvis and themed ceremonies are likely to bring laughter instead, there are sometimes tears during the “serious part”— even at Elvis weddings.

It’s the traditional ceremonies, though, that tend to be emotional throughout. That’s where we go through the most tissue, anyway. Because of our many years of experience in planning and arranging weddings, we have a pretty good idea about when we’re going to need to re-stock our kleenex stash. Here are the cues we go by:

1. When the bride and groom bring us a CD with their own special song for the bride’s entrance. (We can’t even say how much music affects the entire feeling of your ceremony. It may be the single most important choice you can make for your wedding day. By the way, tell us ahead of time that you’ll be bringing your own music.)

2. When there’s a live singer involved. Our Forevermore Wedding Package includes a professional singer, with the couple’s choice of song. If it’s “Ave Maria” or “Unchained Melody” as the bride and groom light of the unity candle, there’s usually not a dry eye in the chapel. There are many other really stirring song choices, and, given two or more weeks’ advance booking, we can perform your song.

Don’t overlook the music, the one detail that makes your wedding unique to you.

3. When the bride and groom have written brief vows to say to each other during the ceremony. These are often so heartfelt that staff members start to tear up, and we don’t even know the couple very well!

4. When the couple includes family in a part of the ceremony. These are usually special requests that surprise even us. For example, at Forevermore weddings, brides sometimes order single roses to pass out to family members during the song and unity candle lighting. It’s a really stirring and unforgettable moment.

5. When the couple adds a “First Dance” to their wedding ceremony package. Again, there is something about “your song” and the meaning it has for you. Sharing an intimate dance mid-ceremony to a special piece of music usually gets everyone else choked up, too. We say, do it!
