Las Vegas, Sin City, world renown for it's gambling, 24/7 parties & having a 'quicky' marriage. This is the most popular place on earth for celebrity weddings. Over the years there have been some of the biggest stars in show business who have chosen Las Vegas as their destination. Below are just a few of the 20th century wedding and what they wore for their weddings.
With one exception, I had to include The King of Vegas Elvis & lets be honest you can't mention Las Vegas without mentioning Elvis, can you?
Elvis & Priscilla
Although I wanted to focus on the more recent Brides & Grooms I couldn't not mention this one! Probably one of the most spoken about weddings of the 20th century, Elvis & Priscilla, the 'King of Rock & Roll' and most probably the King of Las Vegas too. This celebrity couple got married in 1967 at The Aladdin Hotel & Casino (replaced with Planet Hollywood). Elvis opted for a black paisley jacquard shawl collared dinner suit with a matching waistcoat and classic black bow tie. A look that is still popular to this day as a wedding suit. Having said that, in my opinion, maybe not the ruffled shirt. However I have seen a few recently on the red carpet.
We can recreate Elvis's wedding suit look within our full made-to-measure range. Where we can offer jacquard fabrics in black and a few other colours as well.

Shia LaBeouf & Mia Goth 10-10-16, was Las Vegas real?
Held at the 'Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel' that Shia LaBeouf and Mia Goth got married. Their wedding took place in front of just their mum's on 10th October 2016. The only problem is that according to the Clark County Marriage License Bureau that's not the case. The say that a married license was never issued for the couple therefore it was a commitment ceremony & not a wedding. LaBeouf, known for pulling many a prank, dismisses this claim. So who knows was it real?
All I do know is that Shia LaBeouf chose to wear a black slim fit lounge suit. He completed his look with a white shirt, black tie and trainers.
This look can be recreated in all of our collections. Hire, custom made and full made-to-measure suits.
