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. Darling Husband 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!
