An opportunity to be glamourous and playful

Casino-themed weddings require a great deal of balance. It can get over-complicated and at times tacky but in comparison, casinos really embody extravagance and fun. This out-of-the-box way of tying the knot is an opportunity to be refreshing and playful on this significant event. Wedding resource, Beau-Coup points out. “A casino theme may signify leaving a bachelor or bachelorette's life, a last hurrah, or just an excitement filled evening ahead.”

A Source of Many Colourful Ideas
Casinos are expected to be colourful and exuberant but that doesn’t mean you only look at these establishments for wedding ideas. The fun of having this type of motif is the many ideas it can give you to make your special day really unique. You have Las Vegas, the obvious inspiration. You can take on movies that are either casino-themed, like 007’s Casino Royale, or movies that have casino scenes, like Silent Running.

Taking Elements that are Close to Heart
Who would’ve thought that even casino games are great sources of inspiration? “Using these games provide a ready context in which to develop or represent certain characteristics, lighten or darken the mood, and/or create tension and suspense while telling stories,” BetFair Casino blog writer Short-Stacked Stamus shares in his article describing how certain games inspire movies. Given that argument, it would always be wise to observe two rules. One is to be open-minded, and the second is to avoid being overwhelmed. Whether you would like to consider a specific casino-game, or take on a certain Las Vegas resort atmosphere, what matters most is that it will symbolize what you really want to have in your wedding.

Embodying and Describing the Couple
“A casino theme should provide sense of excitement, a touch of glamour, and a dramatic flair,” the wedding resource site Beau-Coup generalizes. That said, having a casino theme would mean that you and your partner-to-be are generally fun-loving, and endlessly crave the glitz and glamour. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t achieve a classy or elegant feel to your wedding. As mentioned earlier, take only elements of what inspires you (casinos or anything else), put them together, see if they fit together seamlessly, and work on them.

Whether it’s a full-on casino theme or just casino elements, it’s important that you and your partner remember the day as one of the best and the first of many great days in a life full of abundant joys. So plan ahead, get inspired by so many sources out there, and pick out only those that really speak to both your hearts. And don’t forget to have fun.
