Why You Should Choose a Casino Resort as Your Wedding Venue

By: Guy Renzi


If you’re planning a wedding, why not give your guests a memorable experience? Have your wedding at a casino, and no one will be at a loss for how to enjoy his or her time. Casinos have many activities, and are the perfect venue for group fun. While you’re at it, have your bachelor and bachelorette party at the casino.

Casino resorts have nightclubs, bars, and several restaurants on site for guests who want to enjoy some evening fun. These are great activities for pre and post wedding celebration.

Casinos also have a plethora of daytime activities, from golf and spas to shopping. Wedding guests won’t have to sit around all day — you can even incorporate some daytime activities into a bachelor or bachelorette celebration.  The resort group planner can step in and help you create an itinerary for a bachelor or bachelorette party. You may also benefit from special group resort discounts.

Gamblers will find both high stakes and less intimidating tables at most casinos. If you’re too scared to bet big, take a class for the table games or ask for a discount for free or match play to get started.  Many casinos like Turning Stone Resort, one of the larger New York casinos, offers weekly promotions and themed tournaments.

Casinos will often offer comps, or complementary items if you play a lot or bet big.  The way casinos keep track of your playing time is by player club cards.  Be sure to sign up for the card so you can earn points every time you play.  You can receive discounts on dining, shows, spa and even rooms.


While a wedding at a casino can be entertaining, don’t let the important details slip your mind. When you’re getting prepared for your special day, keep these planning tips in mind:

  • Choose a date early. It’s wise to have a few in mind when you call to book, in case your first choice is not available.
  • Book hotel rooms for your guests. Before you make your reservation, you will need to know how many guests will be invited. A casino’s group department can assist you, and you should always ask about a group discount.
  • Don’t forget about document logistics. You will need to get a wedding license in the state where you marry. You will need the following items to get a marriage license:

Photo ID
Proof of Age
Social Security Cards
Divorce papers when applicable
Death certificate if widowed
Any proof of health from your doctor

A casino wedding can be the time of your life! You and your guests will create memories that they will go on to talk about for years after and you might even win big money in the process.
