Elvis weddings could soon be banned from Las Vegas
There are fears the Elvis ban could 'destroy' part of the city's wedding industry
Elvis impersonators could be banned from wedding ceremonies in Las Vegas after the company that controls the rock and roll legend's name and license sent cease-and-desist letters to chapels.
Authentic Brands Group (ABG) is demanding that chapels in the city no longer use Elvis' likeness when marrying couples in a move that some fear could devastate Sin City's wedding industry, which generates $2bn a year.
Elvis-themed weddings represent a significant number of ceremonies performed in the city.
"We are a family-run business, and now we're hanging with the big dogs," said Kayla Collins, who operates the Little Chapel of Hearts and LasVegasElvisWeddingChapel.com with her husband.
