  • You will have so much fun!  Do you know what hotel you are staying at?  I went this past summer and we stayed at the Flamingo. The location was great - right in the middle of the strip.  If you're looking for a nightclub to go to, go to the ghost bar at the palms (you'll need to take a shuttle, it's way too far to walk).  Also, if you're looking for someting different, there's a bar called Minus 5 in Monte Carlo that has everything made out of ice (glasses, chairs, tables, etc.).  You also get to wear big fur coats and boots...It's definitely worth checking out.
  • I love Vegas! I went when I was 16, 22 (my birthday), and 23 (for my mom's 50th).  I'm getting the itch to go again so we are planning on going for our first anniversary since it's not a place we'd want to take kids so we are getting it out of the way before that happens.  My parents go 2-3 times/year.

  • Yay!!! When do you go? I have never been either, and I never even thought about having a Vegas B-Party, but my sister (MOH) and her boyfriend are planning a joint Bachelor/Bachelorette Party weekend in Vegas for us! I'm super excited. I can't wait.

  • I am going over Easter weekend. Leaving April 4th and coming home April 8th.

    I heard the ice bar is amazing. I can't wait to go there. We are staying at The Hotel in Mandalay Bay. Its the all suite tower.

  • My parents are leaving the day after my shower, April 2nd to go there.  My suggestion is to use the monorail.  It's much better than walking and stops at various places on the strip and you can walk from there.
  • That would be awesome!  Congrats and have fun.

  • I'll be there the weekend before you for mine! I love TheHotel- it's gorgeous. If you have the time/cash, you should check out the cabanas at the Mandalay Bay's pool. We did a cabana day there last time I went and it was a blast.
  • Have a good time! My advice is to bring only as much money as you are willing to lose and no more. Try and see a Cirque show. I saw Ka a while ago and loved it, but maybe Zumanity is more appropriate...
  • Yay! I'm going too for my bachelorette party.  We havent figured out where to stay yet.  Flights are super expensive right now :(
    Anniversary
  • Dear Brides,
    My name is Lorena Smoakes and ONE OF many Brides who was duped over $8,OOO.00 in wedding venue payments to Griffin Mansion, about $2,000 in airfare for a food tasting that never happen, and $1,500 in a wedding dress that I will probably never wear because Griffin Events Inc STOLED one my childhood dream to become a bride. I entered contract with griffin events Oct. 3 2011, to have a wedding Oct 8th 2012 on my birthday, paid all my payments on time, did everything they asked me to do only to be totally disappointed.  On Mother’s day 5/13/12,  I was scheduled to have a food tasting at Griffin Mansion with my 2 Children, my husband, and  my in laws only to be called half an hour prior to food tasting appt. And be told that the food tasting will not occur because the chief fell sick, my heart skipped a beat, my hand and feet, were immediately cold, and my head started spinning. Mrs. Velez, I live in New York City, my two children are Autistic and a portion of the money used to pay griffin mansion was my retirement money. I begged and pleated with griffin mansion to make this right and they have never called me or offer any realistic compensation for their staffing error. On the contrary griffin mansion made it seems as if I was in the wrong for deciding to cancel my wedding after unanswered email or phone calls, to date I have not received a phone call from Griffin Mansion. Please help me expose this venue and stop them for doing this any other Bride. My whole family is distraught, I am inconsolable. How can a human bean wake in the morning do such a thing? Please assist me in helping other brides find closure in know that this company and these people will no longer do this to anyone.  I have tons of email/correspondence from griffin events that may be able to assist in the prosecution in this fraud and the people behind this. Pls feel free to contact me for full detail @ [email protected]
