elvis-weddingElvis Presley has been gone for over 30 years but his legacy lives on and couples around the world want The King to help them celebrate their marriage.

Do you want to emulate Elvis and Priscilla and get married in Las Vegas, the wedding capital of the world? Would it be a dream come true to have “Elvis” perform at your wedding and bless your marriage?

An Elvis-themed wedding can be as crazy or as classy as you wish, depending on your personality and your budget.

Your very own “Elvis”

“Elvis” can officiate at your marriage ceremony, walk you down the aisle, bless and serenade you once you are married, or perform at your wedding reception. There are Elvis impersonators all over the world, not just in Vegas!

Elvis had many different looks throughout his career, and you can choose from these different styles for your Elvis impersonator, depending on your personalities and tastes: Blue Hawaii, cowboy, rhinestone-encrusted jumpsuit, GI, rock-n-roller…

Two things that you mustn’t miss at your Las Vegas wedding are the tradition of having Elvis bless your hands as he serenades you with a song that touches your heart, and walking down the aisle to Elvis singing “Viva Las Vegas”. 

Many wedding chapels offer live Internet broadcast of your wedding and the chance for guests to be “present” via Skype. Ceremonies can often be held in other languages such as Spanish, French or German. Chapels may offer extras such as Hawaii hula dancers, theatrical effects and a “Priscilla” matron of honor.

Elvis’ own wedding to Priscilla

Elvis himself married Priscilla at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas in 1967 when he was 32 and she was 21. The couple have got to be the coolest newlyweds of all times! The wedding was the epitome of Sixties glamour and star quality.


Elvis wore a shiny black brocade silk tuxedo with a white carnation in his buttonhole and cowboy boots. Priscilla wore a floor length pure white silk chiffon gown with a sheer beaded yolk neckline and sleeves twinkling with seed pearls; she had designed the dress herself. The look was topped with a three foot long cloudlike tulle veil secured to her thick black locks by a rhinestone crown. Their only daughter Lisa Marie was born exactly nine months later.
