You'll probably have heard of couples deciding upon a theme to run throughout the whole of their wedding, but these days, more and more newlyweds are choosing to theme their evening reception with music and entertainment galore!
There are a whole host of ways to theme the 'evening do' and to be honest, you are only limited by your imagination. The following ideas and suggestions should help to give you a taste of what's possible:
No longer do casinos have the dark, dingy and somewhat seedy image that they once had in the 20th century. These days, casinos are sleek, sexy and super cool. Whether it's James Bond movies, celebs having a flutter live on TV, or the glitz and glamour of Vegas, casino's are now no longer seen solely as the domain of rich gambling addicts.
Of course you'll need to request that the guests are suitable attired - tux's for the gents, ballgowns for the ladies are probably your best bet. Then of course there's the music. Something sophisticated and funky can work well - a jazz or swing band, or even a string quartet performing the James Bond movie theme classics will work wonders. Enlist the help of the venue to serve canapes and vodka martini's (shaken, not stirred of course!) or even fortune cookies with good luck messages and predictions for future wealth. Finally the pieste de resistance - the entertainment. There are a whole host of businesses these days that can supply mobile casinos. Blackjack, poker and craps tables, roulette wheels even slot machines can be set up in the venue and will really add to the atmosphere - you could even rope in Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan and Roger Moore look-a-likes to mingle among your guests!
