Good for you! You decided to get married in a chapel in Vegas. While many couples spend months planning their special day, other couples simply jump on a plane and arrive at the chapel ready to go. If you are silly, spontaneous, and are all about the non-traditional things in life; you should definitely consider going all out, Vegas style; and having “Elvis” marry you.
Read on to learn about the top 5 reasons why!
1. It Makes for Great Pictures
Look through your friend’s wedding photo albums. You’re sure to see the officiator standing stiffly between them during their ceremony, holding a book; mouth open speaking about what marriage means. Now, imagine your wedding photo album. Between you and your partner is “The King!” He’s tall, dressed to the nines, and has hair a mile high and a big smile on his face. You certainly don’t see that every day!
2. It Says Something About Your Personality
If you have Elvis marry you, you make a big statement about yourself and your partnership. You obviously don’t take life too seriously, which is the key to success in most marriages. You have to have the ability to just laugh, go with the flow, and think outside of the box sometimes; especially when life throws you a curve ball.
3. You Can Get Serenaded As You Walk Down the Aisle
Many Elvis officiates/impersonators do it all. Not only can they marry you, but they are sure to be talented singers as well. Ask your chapel if “Elvis” can sing you your favorite Elvis song as you stroll down the aisle as a newly married couple. You can never get that from a church ceremony!
4. It Will Make You Less Nervous
Let’s face it. All you’ll be able to do is laugh and smile as you stand with your partner in front of Elvis. No further explanation is needed!
5. It Screams Classic Vegas
For many couples, they want the full Vegas wedding experience; and Elvis as the officiator has always been stereotypically a part of that. After all, go big or go home!
