Amy and Scott tied the knot in their PJ’s after their ‘alien abduction.”
We’ve even done Area 51-style Alien Abduction weddings, where couples show up in their pajamas and slippers and are married in a green foggy glow by an alien “minister”… that’s a special request, one we’d never thought of before one couple requested it!
Themed Wedding packages include your flowers, photography, DVD and round-trip limo transportation from your Strip or Downtown hotel. Costumes are optional…but….most people go full-on Trekkie or Wars for these weddings!
Come as you are, or come costumed to go with your themed wedding!
For more information on getting married during the convention, or any other time of the year, you can visit us at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com and check out our Intergalactic Wedding under Themed Weddings on the drop-down menu on our home page.

Live long and prosper, wedding seekers!
If you’re getting married by Elvis in Vegas, and if pink is your favorite color…Well, the choice is obvious! Our one-of-a-kind Elvis Pink Caddy wedding entrance has you riding into the chapel in a PINK convertible driven by Elvis, in a cloud of theatrical fog and blaring lights and music. How Vegas! How pink you go is totally up to you!
Our Elvis Pink Caddy wedding is the perfect choice for any Vegas spectacular style wedding, but especially for those who go with an all-pink wedding theme. Flowers? Pink roses tied with pink ribbon! Wedding dress? Pink! Groom’s tux? Pink, or maybe just the shirt or tie…or hat band! Bridesmaids? Pink flatters everyone and can be very sweet in a pink-and-ivory combo, or the more sophisticated pink and black. Pink just ties everything together and makes for perfect photos of your unforgettable Vegas Elvis Pink Caddy wedding!
Some brides go “all pink” for their Elvis Pink Caddy wedding!
For those who maybe just like Elvis crooning at their wedding plus the wildly fun Caddy entrance…but not so much the PINK thing…that’s okay, too! It’s YOUR wedding, so pick out the wedding duds and color scheme of your choosing. For this wedding, you’ll want to add live streaming internet coverage if you have friends and family who want to watch in real time back home. Or…the Elvis Pink Caddy wedding package comes with a DVD, so you’ll have “evidence” of your dramatic wedding entrance later!
Elvis Pink Cadillac enters the chapel for a rock ‘n roll kind of marriage ceremony!
You can request a cake and (pink?) champagne reception after you tie the knot. We have several reception venues, including our adorable 1950s Doo Wop Diner. Just drinks and appetizers, or a full-blown luncheon or dinner, we can take care of your Elvis wedding reception, large or intimate. For information on the Elvis Pink Caddy wedding and our reception options, visit us at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com or call a friendly and knowledgeable wedding staffer at 702-384-0771. They’ll fill you in on all the details and customize a package at a price you can afford. We will tailor a wedding or reception with just the frills you want for your special day.
And, by the way, our onsite florist can customize a bouquet with a VARIETY of pink (or other exotic) florals, arrange for a special ribbon color or a customized look to go with your wedding theme or to reflect a personal favorite object or memento. Just let us know how we can assist you to make your wedding perfect (in pink) for YOU!
Now’s the time to book your affordable and fun outdoor wedding for the gorgeous fall wedding season in Las Vegas! Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel performs outdoor weddings year ’round, but autumn is always the absolute BEST weather for picturesque open-air ceremonies around the chapel or around the city. We offer a wide range of locations, onsite, or at amazing vistas not far from our wedding chapel. Elvis can travel to your wedding with portable sound equipment, and our off-site packages include flowers, photography and limousine transportation, too! Seen above: The Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign wedding! Of course, we can also send a “regular” minister to the site of your choosing, or any other of our fun and fabulous wedding character ministers.
Viva Las Vegas Garden Chapel, softly lit by night, lush and green by flattering, shaded daylight
Fall evenings are generally lovely in Las Vegas, perfect for weddings at sunset or later. Our outdoor Garden and Gazebo Chapels, right here on property, are lit by tiny white lights after dusk, but also offer shaded and sheltered daytime weddings, surrounded by greenery-covered trellises. It makes for a just-right wedding ceremony in the intimacy of an outdoor garden. Even better, your ceremony can be viewed live streaming online from out Gazebo and Garden chapels!
Get married at gorgeous Red Rock Canyon at sunset!
A popular choice for fall weddings is our unique Beautiful Red Rock wedding, which takes you 30 miles outside of Las Vegas in a stretch limousine, where you’ll exchange vows in front of gorgeous red desert vistas. This all-inclusive package brings you flowers, a photographer and minister. A subtle planning hint: Timing your ceremony for sunset guarantees an incredible view of the Strip as the lights are coming out on your drive back to your Las Vegas Strip hotel!
Outdoor Gazebo by night
Viva Las Vegas Weddings’ outdoor packages cater to whatever your wedding budget may be. Outdoor Gazebo packages start at under $300. Your open-air ceremony can be performed by a traditional minister, or by Elvis! Choose from various upgrades and options to customize your wedding. But all onsite outdoor packages include flowers, photography and pictures in front of the Main Chapel with your names on our one-of-a-kind marquee over the Las Vegas Strip!
Outdoor Gazebo by day

Couples who agree on a wedding like this one already show the makings of a long-term marriage!
We know. People get married by Elvis here. People get married by Beetlejuice, Tom Jones, and even Darth Vader. But, we see a lot of married folks, and a lot of couples renewing their vows after 20, 30, even 50 years of marriage. We know a good thing when we see it! Plus, we read a lot of studies and statistics to get some insight on what makes marriage strong and lasting. And so, we’ll share what the experts know, so you can estimate your chances of eternal happiness with your chosen mate. (But please note: There are exceptions to every rule, and we’ll bet you know a happily married pair that defy all the generalizations mentioned here!)
According to studies, the couples who have the longest-lasting marriages share these things in common:
1. Shared values and attitudes. Yep, while opposites may attract initially, over time the more similarly you two view the world, and the more similar your lifestyle choices, the better the odds for sustaining a fulfilling marriage. Even a marriage made in Vegas! It’s a demonstrated fact that similar IQ’s and interests make a big difference in how your bond may endure. (Two people who WANT to elope to Vegas to get hitched by Elvis, or to have a light-spirited vow exchange instead of a big church wedding, already share a “different” view on wedding tradition–something they have in common!) Furthermore, if you are friends first, then your relationship develops into something more, your marriage is likely to be even stronger. Other good indications of a foundation for a solid marriage are whether both of you are friends with your parents, too! It just makes it easier to sustain trust and friendship with a spouse, because you are not bringing family drama into the mix.
2. Closeness and intimacy. Couples who have the strongest marriages tend to tell each other everything and to consider them their number one confidant. They also tend to see each other in a more positive light than they even see themselves. They are each other’s biggest fan! Lots of praise and positive reinforcement are majorly helpful in marriage, as is learning to listen. A good thing to remember is to ask, “Do you want me to just listen, or do you want my advice?” That alone will lower the chances for misunderstandings when one of you is having problems in life.
3. Arguing with respect. Marriages can be made stronger through conflict. Some of the best secrets for a good argument include remaining calm, listening to each other one at a time, respectfully, as each expresses their point of view, being willing to compromise for the sake of the marriage. Use “I” language, rather than “you” language. For example, don’t say, “You always leave your socks on the floor.” Instead, de-escalate the situation with, “It bothers me when you leave your socks on the floor. It makes me feel like I’m your maid, not your wife.
Agreeing on a simple, romantic wedding can give young couples a strong beginning for their new life together.
4. Passion. Everybody knows that the most passionate time in any relationship happens during the first year or two. But in long-lasting marriages, the flame doesn’t die. The couples still find plenty of attraction and work to preserve their intimacy and romantic feelings. An ongoing intimate relationship is the most powerful of human experiences, and these couples with lasting marriages acknowledge that on a daily basis. You can show passion in the smallest of ways– a single flower, a note tucked in a wallet, just the right emoticon text. You know.
5. Tolerance. Always remember that your spouse is NOT you. They need to be free to be who they are, and you are not free to change them. Many problems can’t be fixed, so it’s wise to accept the other person warts and all and realize the marriage is more important than whether or not they do your bidding all the time. Important stuff can be smoothed out, but choose your battles, and try to find his or her cute habits (the ones you thought were cute AT FIRST) still cute after 20 years.
6. Commitment and equality. Successful marriages involve recognizing that marriage requires as much energy and attention as a career or parenthood. Long-lasting love means not taking the other person for granted, and always remembering to treat them as the most important person in your life. Those with the best chance for happiness are couples who believe they are equals, contributing equally to the relationship, and they recognize that trust and commitment make the marriage solid. If you both realize that you would only choose to spend your free time with your mate, that’s the best of signs. One long-term bride once said, ” Why would I want to step out on my husband? If I were with someone else, I’d just be wondering what my hubby was doing, and I’d want to be there doing it, too.”
Wishing all of our Viva Las Vegas brides and grooms a lifetime of happiness ahead. We can vouch for most of these rules, because we see the clear signs that they are at play when we do our vow renewal ceremonies! For information on all of our Elvis, Traditional, Themed, Indoor or Outdoor Weddings, visit us at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com
Our elegant Main Chapel, perfect for your Traditional or Themed wedding ceremony…But Elvis will tie the knot for you here, too!
Viva Las Vegas Weddings is a favorite of brides and grooms from all over the world because we have several picturesque and romantic settings to choose from when you book your Traditional, Themed or Elvis Wedding! Many of our Traditional Weddings, and almost ALL of our Themed Weddings are done in our Main Chapel. It’s custom designed with special theatrical lighting and fog effects, included in all of our themes. You can add smoke or fog to any traditional wedding, if you like. It’s especially dramatic if you choose to do a candle lighting ceremony or upgrade to have a live singer performing your song as you dance during the vows. The Main Chapel is the largest freestanding chapel on the Strip and seats up to 100 guests. It’s both spacious AND intimate in feel–perfect for weddings with a lot of guests OR for just the two of you.

Our Gazebo Chapel is quaintly nestled behind our Main Chapel, and is especially suited for those simple-yet-lovely outdoor Las Vegas weddings. Our Outdoor Garden and Gazebo chapels are both equipped with webcams so your ceremony can be streamed live across the country or around the world. When you book an outdoor wedding with us, you’ll be swept from your car or limo (some Outdoor Weddings at Viva Las Vegas include town car transportation or round-trip limousine service from your Strip or Downtown hotel) to a cozy indoor waiting area before the ceremony. There, you’ll meet your minister, your photographer, and then take care of all the paper work and pick up your bouquet and boutonniere!
Do it in our circa 1950’s Diner with Elvis, Marilyn, or….? Poodle skirt optional.
For a unique and kinda-kitschy wedding setting, we present our Doo Wop Diner Chapel. Elvis generally plays the role of minister, or choose from a wide range of characters and impersonators to do the honors instead. From the Diner, you can have your ceremony streamed live on the Internet, plus we’ll display your names in lights on our marquee high above the Strip afterward. Check out our website, too, for our Doo Wop Diner mini-receptions– serving up sliders, hot dogs, and root beer floats for you and your guests!

Anniversaries make the best excuses for a renewal of vows ceremony, with Elvis–or with a “regular” officiant!
Did you know that we do nearly as many wedding vow renewal ceremonies at Viva Las Vegas Weddings as we do actual WEDDINGS? And there are lots of good reasons for that! On your second honeymoon, or on your next family vacation, why not re-create your wedding to add to your fantastic memories of Vegas? Or simply just to have the wild and crazy wedding you would have liked to have, but opted for the big church wedding instead? Here are some of the wonderful ways and heartfelt reasons why couples choose to remarry their spouse in Las Vegas:
One of the most popular reasons for tying the knot again is so that your kids–who weren’t around for your FIRST wedding–can see you get married for a second time, just for them! It’s also a great time to have a fun, fantasy-themed wedding, with costumes, music and theatrical lights and fog. You can choose from options like a space theme or even a comic book hero theme, and everyone can costume-up to play along! And, if you order a full-on themed wedding package, it may be the kids’ first ride in a limo from your Strip or Downtown hotel, included in the package. They will never, ever forget your second wedding in Vegas!
Themed weddings and Elvis weddings are fun for all ages! Let your kids join in your renewal ceremony!
Musical themed weddings are all the rage for vow renewals. Singing, dancing–have it YOUR way the second time around. We can do a Grease themed wedding in our Doo Wop Diner, Phantom of the Opera wedding for romantics, or our ever-popular Rocky’s Horror Themed Wedding with Frank ‘n Furter as “minister”– from the planet Transylvania, of course.
Another day, another Time Warp at Viva Las Vegas Weddings!
Many couples choose a simple, traditional vow renewal, either in our Main Chapel, or a moonlight wedding under the stars in our Gazebo or Garden Chapels. Nothing could be more romantic. Plus, every wedding at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel is topped off with a photo under our marquee, right on the Las Vegas Strip. We’ll light up your names, and the number of years you’ve been wed!
A sweet reminder of why you married each other in the first place!
We sometimes have multiple-couple wedding vow renewals…Although you and your best friends likely don’t share an anniversary, Elvis is a VERY popular wedding vow renewal officiant when you want to share the experience with another couple, or two, or three…Check out our new Little Elvis wedding, with prices starting at $295. Additional charges may apply for extra flowers, etc., when more than one couple participates.
Casual Las Vegas Elvis Weddings in our 50s diner wedding chapel
By far the most common reason for couples renewing their vows with us is to celebrate a big anniversary…or even a small one. We have some couples come back every five years and have a different wedding renewal package every time! And, don’t forget, we can help you plan a wedding vow renewal as a SURPRISE to your spouse, or to your family, or to your parents. Be sure to let us know…we are experts at keeping a secret!
For more questions about all of our weddings, which can ALL be done as wedding vow renewal ceremonies, call us at 702-384-0771, or visit www.vivalasvegasweddings.com to look up our weddings or live chat with one of our bright and friendly staffers! See you for your NEXT wedding in Vegas!
The more the merrier when it comes to renewing your vows with Elvis in Las Vegas!
Yes, you TOO can celebrate YOUR ancestry in a custom Viking wedding–or opt for wearing kilts, say, if you’re Scottish! You can start your planning process by requesting anything from a gladiator to a “tribal lord” minister, or you can just go back in time with a Camelot Themed Wedding. We can make all the arrangements for you if you want to do an “a la carte” style wedding package, with just the elements you want for a unique wedding that says YOU!
Choose your character minister, add fog and lighting effects, add period or exotic ethnic music and costumes…and voila! Wedding magic! We will come up with appropriate vows for your costumed minister, and you can choose to add a few words of your own, a special dance mid-ceremony, or custom-designed flowers from your family crest. Our onsite costume and floral shops make it all easy, too!
This week we did an unforgettable Viking-style wedding, with fierce Scandinavian “minister,” who, naturally, visited his “stylist” before performing the ceremony. Our staff welcomes any challenge. This wedding was great fun for the bride and groom, the attendants (some in helmets and horns), and all of us here at Viva Las Vegas Weddings!
Chapel co-owner Jamie Richards “styles” Viking minister before the ceremony
You can also simply choose to swap out a “regular” minister for another character in any of our themed weddings. That way, you’ll have the included round-trip limousine service and all the frills. We’ll be happy to, for example, put ANY character minister in the wedding of your choice, to match your ancestry, or your favorite movie. Be sure to add live streaming if you want to share your fantasy wedding with friends and family back home.
See all of our existing themed weddings, traditional weddings, and Elvis weddings at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com Don’t forget, you can always ADD Elvis to ANY kind of wedding, for just a touch of Vegas…as long as you’re coming all this way to celebrate your wedding or wedding vow renewal ceremony with us!
