Looking to make a splash in the crowded Las Vegas wedding industry, the Imperial Palace’s recently remodeled Silver Sky Chapel is using showgirls, celebrity impersonators and tattoo artists to help couples create a one-of-a-kind memory.
The new chapel is designed to provide a comfortable, open feel and is draped in sheer voile curtains with custom-color backlighting that allows couples to choose the right mood lighting for their wedding.
Providing couples numerous options to customize their wedding for any budget sets Silver Sky apart, chapel Manager Kris Labuda said.
“One reason we decided to renovate was because we feel we have something new to offer that isn’t in other venues,” she said. “We want our brides to be able to personalize the décor so it has that independent spirit Nevada is known for.”
Packages range from $169 to $3,635; the pricier package includes show tickets, limousine service, a salon party for the bridal party, a couples massage and a professional pianist for the ceremony.
Quirkier offers include having showgirls or celebrity impersonators attend the ceremony and the opportunity for couples to commemorate the day with matching tattoos.
The Silver Sky Chapel has two ceremony rooms; one seats up to 80 people, while the other seats about 20.
“The first thing that comes to mind is that the chapel is very elegant,” Labuda said. “There’s a lot of open space, and it makes for a really nice gathering space.”
