Has lady luck been good to you and your partner? If you're tying the knot this year, there are several factors to consider when planning the after-party. Fortunately, establishing a theme can make any event easier to host. If you've hit the jackpot by finding the love of your life, take a gamble by throwing a Las Vegas themed reception for your wedding!
Decorate in an indulgent manner to get guests excited about celebrating your special day. Table settings should be roulette style, incorporating two wedding colors of your choosing. Mini square candles can be personalized to match your theme and will light up a darkened game style room. A Vegas-style party is able to offer several types of entertainment beyond a lively dance floor. Provide each guest with a pack of customized playing cards to keep family members and friends busy throughout the night.
Las Vegas is known for its elaborate buffet setups, so your reception dinner should be extravagant. Choose a wide variety of your favorite foods and make sure to give guests enough time to go back for seconds, or thirds! You'll also want to make sure that individuals have an opportunity to wet their whistle throughout the night. Hang a personalized pub sign to let guests know exactly where the bar is and hand out signature cocktails alongside personalized bridal napkins to mimic a unique Vegas-style saloon.
Although some aspects of this event may not be child-friendly, there are several ways to incorporate the younger crowd into your celebration. If you are expecting a large number of little ones to attend, hiring a magician to perform can be a fun way to keep kids entertained throughout the party. Additionally, card tables can be set up to inspire children and adults alike to explore their competitive sides. Hand out personalized chocolate poker chips so everyone has a fair chance at playing.
Set up a large candy bar alongside the cake table, with mini gumball slot machines that can be taken home as wedding day favors at the end of the night. Feature poker themed custom cookies and a wide variety of your favorite confectionery treats for a crowd pleasing dessert option that will delight even the most finicky appetite.
