This is Vegas, baby. Nothing is boring or ordinary. If you’re coming to Vegas to get married, or if you’re here and happen to be in the mood, then why go for something you could get anywhere? We’re the city of Elvis, of mobsters, and medical cannabis! Pick your theme. Paint the town whatever shade you like. And make your wedding exceptional with these Vegas theme wedding ideas.
If it was good enough for the King himself, it’s great for all of us. When Elvis and Priscilla tied the knot at the old Aladdin in 1967, they set the stage for decades of Elvis themed weddings. Now that the Aladdin is Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, it’s no surprise the hotel has its Elvis package ready and waiting. At Planet Hollywood, and all across Las Vegas, you can get hitched and serenaded, by any number or style of Evli.
Las Vegas is the Elvis impersonators’ natural habitat. And for the most part we let them roam free. But the ones that perform weddings are a special breed. Some pick up the happy couples in limos. A few have been known to roll in on four-seater bicycles. But whichever you choose, it’s a safe bet that you’ll get to hear Elvis’ signature songs.
For a tropical affair, the Viva Las Vegas Chapel has a wedding dedicated to the King and covered in memorabilia, sets, and props from Elvis’ iconic Hawaiian adventures. They’ve even got a Priscilla impersonator.
And the A Las Vegas Wedding Chapel offers an “Aloha Las Vegas” package where Elvis and hula girls sing and dance four songs. You can even get an hour’s performance from Elvis at your reception.
Get married or renew your vows at Cupid’s Wedding Chapel. An Elvis impersonator will perform the ceremony, entertain you with three songs and pose for photographs.
Ever pretended you’re a long lost kid of the King? We dream of that all the time. At the Silver Bell Wedding Chapel, you can indulge in the fantasy by having Elvis walk you down the aisle. He’ll even leave you with a satin scarf and songs you won’t soon forget.
Not to shatter the illusion, but it would be pretty hard to get married by the real Elvis. We believe in Vegas magic, but that might be a little much. So impersonators like Jesse Garon of Elvis Las Vegas are the next best thing to a séance. Garon has been marrying couples in various chapels since 1992. He’s appeared on “The Tonight Show,” “Regis and Kelly,” “HBO,” “E!,” and more. He sings and dances for wedding parties. And he’s even been known to take visitors for rides down the Strip in his pink Cadillac.
And, of course, there’s the Graceland Chapel. They started it all 25 years ago as the first chapel to specialize in Elvis themed weddings. Have an impersonator entertain you at your wedding or perform renewal ceremonies by signing up for the appropriately, or inappropriately, named King’s Package.
Those who blaze together, stay together.
The Cannabis Chapel, at 827 Las Vegas Boulevard South, performs cannabis-themed “weedings” for the herbally inclined. The chapel celebrated its soft opening with their first wedding ceremony on April 20 gearing up for a grand opening mid-June.
“[The concept] goes with the changing tide with legal cannabis and the industry in general,”Cannabis Chapel founder Drew Gennuso says.
The chapel doubles as a resource center for those interested learning about marijuana.
“A lot of people found relief through medical cannabis use, and a lot of them like talking about it. We want this to become an open forum,” says Gennuso.
For now, the use of medical marijuana is not allowed on the premises. This is something both Gennuso and Fortune hope will change after the November 8 election, with recreational legalization on the ballot.Officiant Locq Fortune conducts the matrimonial ceremony in a flashy weed plant jacket and tie. The bride walks down the aisle to a reggae version of “Wedding March” before meeting her betrothed at the altar. Then Fortune commences with the stoner-pun-filled nuptials.
In the meantime, Cannabis Chapel offers packages from nearby dispensaries for couples who want to partake after they’ve been hitched. For the first wedding, Essence Cannabis Dispensary picked up the bride and groom and provided cake pop edibles for people with medical cards then drove them back to their rooms.
Wedding packages start at $104.20 and comes with the service, the use of the facility, and a silk pot plant bouquet and boutonniere. In the future, they are hoping to have live plants, hemp dresses and tuxes, hemp rings, and other pot-related accouterments. It will also provide pretend ceremonies for those who like the novelty of the concept.

We can think of a few reasons you might want a drive-thru wedding. Some are sweet, passionate and romantic, and others are a little naughty. But the drive-thru wedding craze actually began as a way for disabled people to get married at the Little White Wedding Chapel without having to get out of their cars. Since the ’90s, it’s turned into one of those uniquely Vegas endeavors that allows anyone to roll through the Tunnel of Love Drive-Thru and take the plunge in the comfort of their own vehicle. Bouquets, boutonnieres, photos and DVDs of the ceremony are available. And for an added fee, you can drive a bright pink Cadillac and have an Elvis waiting at the chapel window.
Your wedding is an excuse to “Shout it Out Loud”! So think guitar picks instead of rose petals, smoke effects instead of candlelight, and a Gene Simmons impersonator instead of a priest. Your KISS wedding is guaranteed to be “Hotter Than Hell.”
O sole mio… sta ‘nfronte a te! What’s more romantic than a gondola ride down the Venetian canals? And what’s more Vegas than making all the Grand Canal Shops customers jealous as you clutch your bouquet and pose for a picture, all while being serenaded by your gondolier? The Cerimonia Sul’Aqua weddings take place in an authentic Italian gondola large enough for the bride, groom, witness and minister. Perfetto!
