I just returned from my vow reaffirmation ceremony and reception at the MGM Grand. I don't typically post, but I hope I can help future brides by sharing my experience since I see this topic frequently.
We had several vendors that we worked with. We had a month of coordinator, florist, outside catering, a bartender and Blackjack table for the night.
The caterer arranged in advance for the hotel to deliver 3- 8 ft tables and 24 chairs to the suite. The cost was was $75 and included linens and setup outside on the terrace as well as one table inside for the buffet.
We had no issues from the hotel and they were more than accomodating. The concierege even offered to help call around to different party rental companies to get find the best price on a Blackjack table.
I hope this will ease the mind of anyone that may be concerned about booking the terrace suites and using outside vendors.
I was dealing with a sick child so didn't take many pictures unfortunately, but I will post the pictures I have. We had the blackjack table in the corner where the sectional and TV are located and folded the tables and stacked the chairs after dinner.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
