Don’t Be the Last Jedi to Get Married in Vegas!

Sci Fi Weddings Vegas
You never know who will show up at our Intergalactic Themed Weddings—or from what science fiction galaxy far far away…

The holiday season has brought a flurry of box-office-busting feature films, and a flurry of science fiction movie themed weddings at Viva Las Vegas Chapel! Whatever your favorite movie universe, Viva Las Vegas Weddings has an Intergalactic Themed Wedding to match! Get out your “Wars” or “Trek” gear/uniforms for the wedding ceremony that parallels your favorite space fantasy.

Our Intergalactic Wedding includes theatrical lights and fog, themed music, alien character minister of your choice, flowers, photography and video, plus round-trip limousine transportation from your Strip or Downtown hotel. (For more details, visit our website at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com and choose “Intergalactic” from our Themed Weddings drop-down menu.)

This “minister” won’t force you to do anything you’re uncomfortable with as you say your vows!

We think our space-themed ceremonies are enhanced when they’re scheduled to be held after dark, when our theatrical mood lighting and fog is most effective. (Plus, you get that fabulous limo ride back to your hotel, taking in the lights of the Las Vegas Strip!) But, we’ll get you hitched any time you please! We’ve even done fusion-style Intergalactic Weddings where couples add a touch of Vegas, or any other light-hearted craziness. Elvis has serenaded aboard a “starship”–or you can upgrade your package with any iconic impersonator you like! Tom Jones in space? Liberace at the helm? Your guests watching back home (should you choose to stream live for family friends in other parts of the galaxy) won’t believe their eyes! Just speak to one of our helpful wedding planners to add all the unique touches you want in your out-of-this-world Vegas wedding! (Call us at 702-384-0771.)

For more of an idea what to expect, we thought we’d share a review of one Intergalactic Wedding we found on TripAdvisor. If you have even more questions, you can chat with us by phone or online on our wedbiste at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com

“Our Star Trek Themed Wedding!”

Reviewed September 27, 2016 via mobile
Just got married there 9/21/16. This chapel was excellent! We had a Star Trek themed wedding and everything went off without a hitch. Our online and day of wedding coordinator, Olivia, was FANTASTIC! She communicated with me promptly throughout the planning stages, wedding and post-wedding requests. All our guests commented on how well this venue did. They were really impressed with everything. The impersonators were fantastic. I initially thought the 30 minute ceremony would seem rushed but it wasn’t in the least. They are so organized everything moves along smoothly. My husband and I couldn’t be more pleased with our wedding there. Thank you Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel! We will recommend you to others.

Planning a holiday time wedding in Las Vegas? Don’t have a Blue Christmas–have an Elvis Blue Hawaii holiday wedding or wedding vow renewal! Just before Christmas, things are quieter in Las Vegas, room rates are low, and the fabulous shops in all the mega-resorts are primed for holiday shopping! Perfect for when you want to combine your special day with a fun holiday-themed honeymoon in Vegas.

Our most popular Elvis Blue Hawaii wedding is relaxed and spirited–but did you know you can add Santa Claus (with or without Mrs. Claus) to your wedding? Add our unique Pink Cadillac entrance, with Elvis driving the two of you down the aisle into the chapel with Santa in the passenger seat, jingling his bells! At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, YOU can tell US what you want to include in your unique wedding package.The Elvis Blue Hawaii wedding comes with flowers, photography and video, beach fog and theatrical lights, Elvis singing three songs with a hula girl by his side…Even round-trip limousine service is included!

If you’re doing an Elvis wedding on a budget, we have several less elaborate packages (see the drop-down menu under Elvis Weddings at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com), but we can upgrade with any special holiday features you wish. Add a holiday song for a First Dance, add Santa to pass out small gifts or candy to your guests, add custom holiday-themed flowers…We take requests! Mrs. Claus can be your matron of honor, or, request an elf, angels, or…? as attendants.

Please give us a call with questions and ideas for your December wedding to remember! 702-384-0771

Staff Spotlight: Meet Viva Las Vegas Wedding Planner, Blaze!

Vegas Wedding Planner
Blaze makes sure you feel at ease and takes care of all your wedding day details!

Here’s the first in a series of interviews with the friendly and talented crew at Viva Las Vegas Weddings. We thought you’d like to get to know our wedding staffers a bit better as we highlight their stories here on the blog. And please feel free to ask questions in the comments section, if you’d like to learn more about the wide range of services each staff member can provide for your upcoming wedding!

“I LOVE just about everything about my work at Viva Las Vegas Weddings,” exclaims professional wedding planner/wedding coordinator Blaze. Blaze is a rarity in the Wedding Capital of the World–he’s a native Las Vegan, and he’s been with us at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel for nearly two years. Blaze has become an amiable, familiar face to many couples who’ve recently passed through our doors to be married. “My favorite part of the job is assembling the sets and props for the various themed weddings. People don’t realize that we can completely change the look of the chapel from a Gothic graveyard setting to an Old West scene for our Western weddings. And it all takes place in the blink of an eye!”

Blaze is also the guy who coordinates many of the more traditional weddings here. Every day he walks couples through their paces before their guests are seated, making sure the bride has her bouquet and the groom’s boutonniere is pinned on correctly. Blaze has an amazing knack for putting nervous couples at ease, “talking them down” and soothing any anxiety about the ceremony.

Blaze brings to the chapel his background as a makeup artist, too. His skills with a cosmetic brush plus his innate flair for the theatrical come in really handy for the chapel’s Halloween weddings. “Everyone on staff gets into costume and character on that night. I’m always here to give a helping hand for Zombie Elvis, Dracula, Frankenstein–even a classic glamour makeup is sometimes required!”

When asked about his least favorite part of the job, Blaze admits, “Sometimes the in-laws can be a little too involved, often making brides and grooms unnecessarily anxious, or upsetting the couple because the advice they’re getting is NOT what they had in mind.” He explains that being tactful with in-laws-to-be is not always easy, and sometimes getting a message across may not go perfectly. “We try to explain that the wedding day belongs to the brides and grooms. To us, they come first.”

We asked Blaze about the funniest thing he’s seen at a wedding, since a chapel with dozens of Elvis, themed and even traditional weddings can attest to a unique story to tell about each and every ceremony. “Once on a really busy weekend, the chapel owner Ron Decar was making a quick change from a tailored minister’s suit to a bustier, lipstick and pearls to play Dr. Frank-N-Furter in one of our Rocky’s Horror themed weddings. Well, Ron was throwing on his costume pieces as fast as he could, and with big, frantic eyes, he called out, ‘It’s SHOW-bizzy!”

Blaze describes the WORST thing he’s seen happen–NOT very funny at the time, but somehow hilarious in retrospect: “On a really hot summer day, we were getting ready to do an Elvis wedding with a pink Cadillac entrance. Just before the doors of the chapel were thrown open so Elvis could drive the couple down the aisle, we heard a HUGE explosion from outside. When we opened the doors, there was ‘Elvis” in a big cloud of black smoke standing by the backfiring car. It was a real mess!” Somehow, everything turned out fine in the end…

Just as in ANY wedding, the little disasters often make the wedding more memorable, and generally it IS funny, AFTER the fact! More than 99% of the time, though, things go off without a hitch.

What’s Blaze’s best advice for Las Vegas brides and grooms? “Make sure your wedding is all about YOU. It’s easy to try to please family members and make compromises, but ultimately you want the wedding that expresses who YOU are. And that’s something we’re here to help with.”

If you’re planning to elope or even to have a big, elegant wedding here at one of Viva Las Vegas’s chapels, look for Blaze and say “hello!” He’ll have lots of stories to tell, and he’ll certainly want to hear yours!
