Suggested Attire + Elvis Costume Contest
Elvis will be marrying couples and renewing vows at our little white chapel! So come in wedding attire – tacky bridesmaid dresses, velour suits or whatever says Vegas wedding to you! We also encourage people to come dressed as their favorite Elvis (Hillbilly Cat, leathers, or, of course, bejeweled jumpsuit), and join in the Elvis look-alike competition on our main stage!
All our wedding spots are now filled but pictures with Elvis in our “little white chapel” are still available the night of the event.
Elvis Presley bought and owned many Cadillacs in his short lifetime – up to 200 by some estimates. America’s Car Museum’s exhibit, Cadillac – The Standard of the World, tells the story of the brand’s inception and vaunted reputation for designing and building some of the finest, and most desirable automobiles in the world in our Showcase Gallery.
