Um Yeah! I would love that, seriously that sounds like a blast! You get the best of both worlds because you have the reception time to spend with your guests, then all of you pack in a go to a casino for the party! Plus think about all the cute pics you will have of you in your wedding dress at the casino! LOVE IT!!!!!!!!

sounds fun – you’ll let the guests know ahead of time, I assume, so those who choose to go won’t be unnecessarily disappointed?

No one with gambling problems on the guest list, I hope…

I think that sounds like a fun idea! Just make it clear to guests what the plan is.

im not a casino person so dont be offended if people say goodnight at the restaurant as you head off

otherwise, if it makes you and your FI happy – then do it

That sounds like SO much fun! What a great party! You might even be able to host your own gambling room if you really wanted to play with it!

I’m not a casino person so I can’t say I’m personally on board with this but you know your guests best.  I guess those that aren’t into the casino could leave after dinner but personally, for me I would feel slightly “jipped” out of celebrating the new marriage with the newlyweds.  For me and I think a lot of other people, the real marriage celebration is not the dinner but the dancing and partying that takes place at the reception.  People see dancing as a way to celebrate with their friends and family.  So yeah, I would personally be bummed that I didn’t get this opportunity.

It could be fun but also keep in mind the size of the casino. You might quickly “lose” people if there is more than one room. If everyone splits up it won’t feel as much like “your” reception. Maybe you can work with a casino to rope off one room for just your guests?

Sounds great! But the casino the guest pay for out of their pocket, right? Or will you give them each like a $10 voucher or something?
