The Event Center at Rivers Casino Philadelphia believes wedding planning should be fun and exciting. That’s why our wedding coordinators have taken the time to compile this handy guide of wedding planning tips to ensure a stress-free wedding. By following these tips, you can thoroughly enjoy the wedding planning process and bring your vision to life.

Wedding Reception Venue Phialdelphia

Choose a Venue That Does It All

It can be overwhelming to host a wedding at a venue that expects you to do everything on your own. The Event Center offers a variety of all-inclusive wedding packages so that you can sit back, relax, and let us take care of planning and executing your special day.

Lighting and Decorations

Set a Budget

Although it may seem obvious, some couples skip the step of setting a budget for their wedding. If you set a budget and make a list of all of your wants and needs, you’ll be able to alleviate a lot of the financial stress that may arise while planning a wedding.

Outdoor Wedding Venue

Make it a Team Effort

You and your significant other are a team, making it important for you to plan your wedding together. Don’t be afraid to ask your fiancé to take care of some wedding-related tasks and encourage them to come with you while you’re shopping for a venue, trying a wedding cake, choosing a band, and more.

Wedding Reception Cards

Number Your RSVPs

There will always be a guest or two or three that forget to write their name on the RSVP card you sent them. By placing a small number on the back of each RSVP card that corresponds with each guest, you can avoid confusion and easily determine who each unmarked RSVP is from.

Take a Break

At some point during your wedding planning, be sure to book a weekend getaway or vacation or simply go out on the town to take a break and make happy memories with your significant other. A break from wedding planning can leave you both feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Wedding Bride Groom

Remember Why You’re Getting Married

It can be easy to stress about the small things like if it will rain or how your guests will like your food. However, remember that you are getting married to spend the rest of your life with someone who makes you smile. At the end of the day, the small things don’t matter and your main focus should be about your future marriage. 

Our wedding coordinators are dedicated to taking the hassle out of wedding planning and pledge to help you host the most perfect day. Call us at (844)-538-3098 for more information.
