The Wackiest Weddings in Vegas


If you dream of getting married in a long white dress, then let’s be honest; Las Vegas probably isn’t for you. However, if your dream wedding involves transvestites, klingons or Elvis then you’ve come to exactly the right place. The city is an adult wonderland and some of the best hotels in Las Vegas are also home to some of the quirkiest wedding chapels. We’ve listed some of the wackiest weddings that you can book while in Vegas, but if you can’t find a theme to suit you and your beloved then take solace in the fact that almost anything can be arranged in Vegas:

Vampire Themed Wedding

One thing that you wouldn’t expect to see at one of the best hotels in Las Vegas is a dark shadowy figure lurking in the rafters of the chapel. No, we’re not talking about a vengeful ex, but rather a flying vampire ready to light the unity candle to symbolise you and your betrothed’s eternal life together. Since the blockbuster film Twilight was released, vampire weddings in Vegas have gone more mainstream; but at the Bright Light City, the venue and the church haven’t changed since the days vampiric weddings started being offered. The church is decorated with tombstones and atmospheric fog, with the wrought iron gates reminiscent of a grave yard. For an extra charge, ghouls can be brought in to scare your guests. Just a word of advice though, make sure you book in advance if you’re planning a Halloween wedding – after all you don’t want your wedding to suck; or do you?

Elvis Weddings

It seems that Las Vegas is known for two things – Elvis and Weddings. So why not combine them both and have an Elvis Presley themed wedding? There are Elvis impersonators everywhere you go in Vegas; so much so that the locals even have a name for them – Elvi, as in an Elvi of Elvises. Whether you want an Elvi of Elvises, or just the one all-singing, jumpsuit-wearing Elvis then you’ll be pleased to know that many of the best hotels in Las Vegas have their own take on the Elvis themed wedding. Or, for something different you can head to the Aladdin Chapel where Elvis married Priscilla Presley back in 1967. Elvis fans can even have Elvis walk them down the aisle, or even book a special Aloha Las Vegas package complete with hula girls and Hawaiian themed backdrops.

Pirate Themed Wedding

At some of the best hotels in Las Vegas you can get married in beautiful surroundings and then return to the luxury of your honeymoon suite, where a rose-petal strewn bed is waiting for you. However, there are some people who aren’t interested in the best hotels in Las Vegas, and the luxury of a honeymoon suite is wasted on them. These are the kind of salty seadogs that prefer a swashbuckling life on the high seas, where life is all “yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum”. Of course, when the time comes for these pirates to marry, there’s really only one place in Vegas that will do –the Treasure Island Pirate ship. For the right amount of gold a pair of rogue pirates can act as witnesses, and you might catch a pirate swinging down from the crow’s nest to deliver the rings.
