Graceland Wedding Chapel
The Graceland Chapel has been a part of the Las Vegas Strip for over 50 years and is one of the most prominent chapels for a wedding in Las Vegas. A Las Vegas wedding is one of the most appealing wedding ideas to celebrities too. Jon Bon Jovi was married here and in 2001, actually held a concert in the parking lot with 75 couples who renewed their vows with him! Other musicians such as Billy Ray Cyrus, Aaron Neville and members of popular groups such as Def Lepard, KISS, Deep Purple and The Thompson Twins have all tied the knot here as well. Last year Jay Leno even stopped by with plenty of entourage to check out the chapel. It’s been featured in films such as “When Fools Rush In” with Selma Hayek and Matthew Parry; “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas”, starring Johnny Depp and several television shows such as the CBS Early Show, MTV, VH1, Good Morning America and The Tonight Show.
Pirate Boat at Treasure Island
TI Hotel and Casino
Okay, you’re going to get married in Vegas. That part is decided. You just don’t know if you want to play Samson and Delilah, Elvis and Priscilla, bungee off the whole thing or do it in the car. No coin can solve this one. So why not try the Strip’s idea of a wedding, ala the HMS Royal Britannia at Treasure Island. As pirates swoop and fires swell, marrying couples shudder in their Skechers. First you take the wedding walk to your spot on the ship, then you walk the plank. This is pirate’s tongue for taking the plunge, hitting the fish, getting clipped, you know what I mean. The captain delivers your wedding vows and a host of pirates and sailors roosting on the nets serve as witnesses. For the asking, a pirate swings down at the appropriate moment and bears rings, all for a hefty ransom of about $3,000. Hey it’s Vegas, baby. For a couple of grand more a deal with the buffet manager is set and you got yourself a party.
