WHERE: Hilton Garden Inn in Issaquah

WHAT: The whole wedding entourage—friends, family, and the lucky couple—are invited to a night of casino games, drinks, desert-tasting, raffle prizes, and a little rolling of the dice with local wedding vendors.

Designed to get everyone involved in the planning of the big day, this Monte Carlo of the Northwest is a pretty safe bet when it comes to preparing for your nuptials. Vendors will be on hand to talk shop, but the casino atmosphere keeps it light and entertaining (plus, a blackjack table isn't a bad place to park your less-than-interested groom). 

WHEN: Thursday, October 11 from 6 to 8:30; RSVP at the event website.
