Casinos are designed to offer the ultimate in luxury services, so when you choose casino wedding receptions for your big day, you get the staff and surroundings you need to pamper yourself and your guests in true sophistication.
The Big Benefits of Casino Wedding Receptions
Casinos for weddings make the ideal choice for many reasons:
Casinos have the space and ambience for a perfect wedding. If you are looking for a great wedding venue, of course you want ambience, class, sophistication and enough space to create the perfect wedding. Casinos often have several venues – including ballrooms – where you can host your special event. Whether you want a smaller room for a more intimate wedding or a large space for a huge wedding, a casino can work with you to create the exact look and feel you want. Casinos pay a lot of attention to detail, so you can be sure that your event will create the true aura of luxury you deserve. From beautiful table linens to luxurious rooms, casinos have already created the perfect retreat for guests.
Casinos have all the services you need under one roof. Casinos have rooms for getting ready, spas to make you look amazing on your big day and premier food services to feed your guests. A sudden, last-minute need for an iron or a safety pin? At a casino, concierge and front desk services are only a phone call away. Need food for your reception? Casino chefs are at your beck and call to create the perfect menu for your special day. From greeting your guests to making sure the flowers are perfect, casinos have the entertainment, accommodations, spa services and everything else you need in one spot, making your wedding go more smoothly.
Even if you need that last-minute special touch, casinos have boutiques to help you find everything from earrings to a special garter belt. With all these services at your fingertips, you will be absolutely pampered on your big day.
Casinos can handle all the details for you so that you can focus on your own love story. One of the big advantages of casino wedding receptions is that casinos are used to handling large events so they have the resources to take care of everything. On your big day, you want to be able to focus on friends, family and the love of your life. You do not want to have to fret about every small detail.
This is where casinos really shine. They have the discreet, professional staff and the services to handle all the details. They can get your event catered, help you with flowers and make sure guests are comfortable – leaving you to focus on your big day with the peace of mind that comes with knowing that everything is handled. Let casinos take care of every luxurious detail so that you can enjoy having the wedding of your dreams.
Casinos make it easy to have a huge multiday party or a small, intimate wedding. About 47 percent of couples choose to have a wedding event that lasts three days or more. Even shorter weddings can include an after-wedding brunch, rehearsal dinner and more. Getting everyone in one place and offering accommodations can be a challenge – but casinos are specifically designed to handle huge amounts of guests seamlessly.
If your wedding will take a few days, casinos provide the premier accommodations needed to keep guests comfortable at your wedding destination overnight. Since casinos are usually open 24 hours, there is always something for your guests to do and attentive staff on hand to help – even if some of your wedding events run late.
Casinos make it easy to accommodate all your guests. Whether you have 50 guests or more than 200, casinos can find seating, accommodations and services for everyone. Casinos specialize in offering quality services to millionaire guests, large groups and business professionals. They can offer the sophisticated services you need to as many guests as you invite. Even if everyone has different tastes, casinos have the staff and amenities to please virtually everyone.
Casinos have the entertainment you need. While you are taking care of your wedding plans and events, who will make sure your guests are having a wonderful time? At a casino, it is a question you never have to ask. Casinos have restaurants, gaming, live harness racing, live acts and everything else needed to keep everyone happy and building memories of their own. For even the most refined tastes, there are boutiques, live events, and spa experiences to sample.
Casinos have the level of service you need. On your wedding day, you deserve to be treated like royalty. Casinos are staffed by hospitality professionals who are especially trained to offer a high caliber of service. Staff at casinos are well-versed in assisting business professionals, wedding guests, high rollers, millionaires and more. They are dedicated to providing the best possible experience to everyone, ensuring that you and all your guests get treated like stars. From discreet concierge services to wait staff who are uniformed, professional and always on call, you can expect a high caliber of service that will make your event even more memorable.
How to Make Your Casino Wedding Unique
Having your wedding at a casino can already help create a unique atmosphere, but there are other ways to make your wedding one-of-a-kind:
Choose a theme wedding. Building your wedding around a theme can help you add unique touches. For example, if you are basing your wedding around “The Great Gatsby,” you can have your guests dress up in 1920s fashions and meet at gaming or poker tables to play the night away like molls from the Roaring ‘20s.
Personalize. Personalizing your wedding with hand-written notes to guests or with custom, monogrammed touches makes your wedding your own. When you hold your wedding at a casino, casino staff can help you with the unique additions that can help you make your special day memorable.
Create a scavenger hunt. A scavenger hunt for your guests can help keep them occupied and can help create memories. Ask guests to create specific photo collages or ask them to find specific hotel and casino events.
Surprise your guests and wedding party. Surprise luxury gifts left in the rooms of your wedding guests or gifts that can be picked up in casino gift shops help you treat your friends and family like royalty and help create a unique event.
Help guests with get-to-know-you activities. Ice-breakers can be a great way to make sure that your wedding really creates a family and lets everyone get to know each other. Casinos can make it easy – guests can get together for gaming or can take part in special events to get acquainted.
