Hi all! I think I found the perfect venue for us. We are avid gamblers! Hollywood Casino and Races is a serious contender.
Have any bees had a wedding and/or reception here or are planning to?
Can any casino bride bees share any tips, advice, things I should consider or be aware of when it comes to a casino wedding?
We’re planning a plated dinner for about 100 with a brief vow renewal ceremony at the same place as the reception. I think I will do black tie invited.
Also, I wanted a child-free wedding and got some pushback. This helps solve that problem! The hotel is attached to the casino and reception areas and this is a late evening wedding.

*crickets* *bump* Really?! I can’t be the only bee! Maybe I am, so I’m really special! LOL
Anyhow, I called and left a message with the venue. I’m excited to see what it’s all about. Just for fun I think I’ll make updates here. Hope all goes well with everyone’s planning!

Hi Bees! I toured the casino ballroom this Saturday. I love it! I’m not 100% sure on the casino venue yet, but there’s so much about it that I love.
- The ballroom has a wall of window that overlooks the indoor stadium seating and racetrack. There will be racing during the wedding. DH LOVES horse racing (it was the theme for his 40th birthday).
- I can give away real casino chips as party favors, and the $5 chips match my colors.
- It’s perfectly desiged for a ceremony-to-instant-reception, the bar can be relocated, there’s enough room to host a cocktail hour there too, they can do plated or family style dinner service, and they have a cake/pastry chef.
- I love to gamble, and I want photos of me playing at the tables in my wedding gown. Hell yeah!
