The Wedding Theme – Viva Las Vegas

We had bridal dresses inspired by the Hollywood golden era yesterday so in keeping with the glamour of old school movie stars and such how about a Vegas themed wedding? I’m talking glamour, style, Elvis, The Rat Pack, movie stars all properly ‘60’s and 70’s.

You could do modern Vegas without a doubt but wouldn’t it be nice to mix it up a bit and go old school? I’m thinking embrace the whole theme and have the men in Rat Pack inspired suits and the ladies in cocktail dresses.

Alfred Sung dress

I’m not usually into ‘proper’ bridemaids dresses but I love this Alfred Sung dress on Dessy’s website. Can you imagine your bridesmaids in these? They are such a cute style and would be so comfortable throughout the day, plus I love this bold pop of colour.


For the wedding breakfast and reception, which is where most themes really take hold, you could have cocktails being served as arrival drinks and cheeseburgers and steak instead of the traditional three-course meal with a jukebox playing in the background.


Neon Sign

And how about your own neon sign? How cool would that look! Also it’s something that you would get to have a keepsake afterwards.


Elvis and Vegas go hand in hand so why not name each table after an Elvis song? Here are some examples:

  • Viva Las Vegas (you would have to have this song!)
  • The Wonder of You
  • Burning Love
  • Can’t Help Falling in Love
  • Stuck on You
  • A Big Hunk o’ Love
  • Love Me Tender
  • Shake, Rattle and Roll
  • All Shook Up
  • (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear
  • Have I Told You Lately That I Love You
  • Loving You

Finally why not have blackjack tables to entertain the guests during the evening? There are plenty of companies that provide these along with fake money for you guests to play with. It would be a great way to get guests interacting as they arrive and at the beginning of the evening.

So that’s another theme off the list for this week, if any of you have had or are thinking of having this theme I would love to hear about it, just head over to our Facebook page and leave a comment!
