Back from MB Married & with Reviews!!!

Southwest Airlines.. A... It was a really pleasant experience, no delays & they let me carry my dress on w/o any problems!Mandalay Bay.. B... The place is beautiful! From the rooms, to the pools to the lobby & casino. The bellhops are super friendly and accommodating and from my guests experiences, everything was perfect. However, from my end there were some issues. First, when we got there at 10pm our room was not ready, we checked into a dirty room. They tried moving us to a room one floor down- but it was a smoking floor (and boy was it smokey!!). We had to wait about 2 hours for them to clean our room.. and it was the middle of the night after an 8 hour flight. We were NOT HAPPY! They gave us free access to the Spa, which really did nothing for us. Second, the following morning we needed to make arrangements to get DH tux & our marriage license, the concierge lady was useless.. her best advice was get a cab. Not knowing how long each stop would take, or that we'd be able to get another taxi, our only option would've been having cab wait for us. She could've at least suggested a bus, or a car service, or something. Thirdly, nothing was charged to my parents credit card as I had asked. We intended on having them pay for the bar package, and we'd pay for the Vista Suite.. turns out we got charged for everything when we went to check out, even though I had signed & faxed back an authorization for my mom to pay for it months ago! It took about an hour to straighten that out. Lastly, everything was REALLY expensive. I kind of expected it, but they really do get you for every penny. Bella Brides- A+  Michelle was excellent! She arrived right on time and was very professional and friendly. She did three of us in about 2 hours and we all looked great! My hair came out amazing.. even better than I expected. The only negative thing I can say is that she used all powder make up.. and for some reason it did sort of wash my mom out a little bit, but I'm sure it photographed great! Anyway, I would highly recommend!Todd Wilson- A+++ What can I say that hasn't already been said about this man? He's awesome! He arrived right on time and starting snapping pictures the minute I met him. He kept me company in the chapel dressing room after my mom and friend left to take their seats.. and he was just very professional. The photo tour of the strip was excellent, even DH had a good time! In the end, he took about 1200 pictures and stayed probably half hour longer than we paid him for.ESPN Zone- A+++ I  can't even tell you how awesome my experience was with them! Sandy was so easy to work with and responded to every single email up to the wedding immediately. She hooked us up with super cheap game cards for all my guests (practically free!), and the Bristol Suite looked amazing. She provided black linens for us, which was completely unexpected (she originally said they don't provide them). Every single guest commented on how excellent the food was, my mom said it was the best she's ever eaten! The steak was melt in your mouth, the wings were delicious and the mashed potatoes were excellent! They also special made 2 food dishes for our Vegan friends. My only regret was that we weren't there longer :(Rosey Posey Floral Designs A++ Again, even better than I expected.  The floral arrangements were beautiful and BIGGER than I imagined. They looked awesome! And it was a decent price!LV Cake Designs- A+ The cake was fantastic! It was moist & delicious and looked amazing! My only complaint was that I mailed out a cake platter (which they ended up buying from me), but it wasn't used. My guess is that the cake ended up being too big, but would've been nice to get a heads up on that. But, other than that .. Dawn was a doll to work with and I highly recommend!I want to give a great big thanks to all you LV knotties for your inspiration and support. My mother-in-law said she didn't know how I pulled it off... I giggled and thought.. TheKnot! Anyway, congrats to everyone and good luck planning all you future knotties!
