Celebrate a wedding in non-traditional fashion with a theme that will both surprise and entertain your guests. If you and your partner are gaming enthusiasts or enjoy Las Vegas, take a gamble and hold a casino-themed wedding. With everything from invitations to wedding cakes available in a variety of colours and motifs, you can customise every aspect of a casino-themed wedding.
Begin the theme months before the wedding by sending out casino-themed invitations. Invitations designed as mini-roulette wheels, as well as playing-card invitations with a queen of diamonds or ace of hearts motif, can be personalised. If you want a more traditional invitation, use a plain white card with dice or scattered poker chips in the corners.
Impress your guests with a casino-themed wedding cake at the reception. Consider a poker-chip cake, with a half-dozen round cakes decorated as poker chips, stacked on top of each other. Another idea is the roulette-themed cake, with a mini-wheel and playing board, complete with black and red chips. Traditional cakes also can be made with casino trimmings, such as the iconic red and black chips to cover a simple white two-tiered wedding cake. Small candied hearts and clubs can be placed around the edge to give any conventional wedding cake a casino-themed makeover.
Poker-themed cookies or chocolates can be given as wedding favours. Cookies can be frosted like playing cards and chocolates can come in the form of poker chips and even mini-roulette wheels. Personalise key chains by incorporating the bride and groom's photograph on a poker chip background. Even a key chain that says "Las Vegas" can be given to celebrate the theme. Wedding coordinators can assemble small red or black gift bags for each guest containing an assortment of these casino-themed goodies.
Las Vegas, the city known for its casinos and world-class entertainment, can be emulated at your wedding. Provide cover acts of singers such as Frank Sinatra, Wayne Newton or Elvis Presley. Big bands also work for a casino-themed weddings. Supply entertainment for your guests with roulette tables and card games such as blackjack or craps inside the reception venue. Gambling chips can be chocolate lookalikes or the real deal.
The groom can opt for a bow tie decorated with poker chips to fit in with the casino-themed wedding or skip the coat to wear a silk vest and tie. The bride still can wear a classic white gown if she chooses along with black or red heels to keep with the theme. Bridesmaids can wear red or black. Groomsmen can wear bow ties to match the gowns or tailor-made dealer vests, to look like casino workers.
