so i should preface this request by saying that i am a groom trying to help my fiance gather some information for our wedding. with her graduating from college in the coming month, i've been trying to help her gather some information and opinions about as much as i can. her graduation exams and licensing boards have her stressed enough so i am trying to share some of the burden as far as wedding details goes. that has me in over my head on some things (make up and hair) but i have managed well in other areas (center pieces for a Vegas-themed reception were actually fun)
we are getting married on 9/9/16 at Caesar's Palace in the Juno Gardens. The wedding is at 8 in the evening. i have Todd at Bently & Wilson booked as our photographer. (thanks to some research here, we went with him as a lot of people had great things to say about him) Imagine Studios will also take pictures of the wedding since they are included in the package we have from CP. after the wedding we plan to take a double decker bus tour with our guests (50-60) to take photos and generally just have a fun time.
the devil is in the details though. our wedding package includes her getting her hair and make up done at Color Salon in the Forum Shops at Caesars. Has anyone heard anything about them? of course the info we got about them from CP speaks glowingly of them, but she has not been able to find a lot of information about them. does anyone have anyone in particular that they would recommend for someone that is reasonably priced and would do hair/make up for the rest of the girls in her bridal party or should she just try to get them all done at the same place. i'm a guy and admittedly clueless about if she should stick with one place to do everything.
also, we are not planning on having a "reception" per se since only a few family members are coming to the wedding and we are going to have a reception here in Kansas City when we return. the bus tour is 3 hours long (per Todd at B&W's suggestion as well as Mike at DDB) since it is a Friday night and could be busy as far as traffic slowing the tour down. so we will not return to Caesars until midnight, but we were curious if anyone has any suggestions as far as someplace on the Strip to take a group of 25-30 (the younger people mostly) that would let a group in late and hopefully offer food at a reasonable price since we plan to just have the end of the bus tour be the end of anything "official."
i should already say thanks for the help you all have unknowingly provided since i have been reading through old topics for advice and recommendations already. thank you for any suggestions you might have as well!!!
