Wedding Reviews from 5/28

We had an amazing time in Vegas. Would not have changed a thing. I have the link to the photos. If you would like to see them feel free to PM me and I'll send you the info to log on!


Wynn Wedding Salon   A++++++++++
Amazing, Amazing, Amazing. They had everything taken care of. Our wedding coordinator was Cabriole and she was AMAZING.  The preparations she took care of and everything went very smooth. The decorations were PERFECT and everyone loved the ceremony. I was very nervous!

Wynn/Encore Catering Department for our Reception A+++++++++++
We had our reception in the ballroom at Encore and it couldn't have gone more smooth. Chantay was the catering manager for our event. It was a wierd feeling seeing everything I had planned for the past year on the computer, in person. For the first half hour my hubby said stop looking around at everything and enjoy yourself.  The night went very fast. The cake they designed with just ideas I had given them and it came out exactly the way I want. I am not sure which bakery designed the cake.

Wynn Resort A++++++++
Rooms were amazing, pool was fun but crowded. Have to go early to get a chair.

Cashman Photos A+
We had Joe the photographer from Cashman who was GREAT! He was so nice and had the best personality. He knew exactly what to shoot and they came out amazing. They had the photos ready for viewing 2 days after the wedding.  We purchased a photography upgrade which provided us with all photos he took (678) 2 days later. I was worried about Cashman but Joe was the BEST. I have his e-mail I would highly recommend.

Planet Hollywood A-
We stayed at Planet Hollywood for 3 days starting 2 days after our wedding. At first the room we was given first "Hollywood Hip Room" smelled and had no view and the window shutters were ripped off. It wasn't that bad but it didn't have a romantic honeymoon feel so we went to the lobby and told them we had just gotten married and wanted a honeymoon feel. They upgraded us to the suite looking over the strip for a discounted price.  We loved it.  The casino itself was so much fun.  More of a young crowd that we fit in with.

Gallery at Planet Hollywood A+
One of the BEST clubs I have ever been to ever. There is one room in the club called the Pussycat Dolls Burlesque Saloon and the Pussycat Dolls perform. It was so much fun. Unreal club.

Pure at Cesears A-
The only problem with Pure it was so crowded an no where to stand. Upstairs there is an upper part of the club that looks over the strip. It was gorgeous. Just not that much room.

Tryst @ Wynn A+
Amazing view. We saw about 10 celebrities there, mostly athletes. I was able to take some pictures with them, most were very nice. I told them I was getting married and most of them were then nice. (Nicest was Reggie Bush-and HOTTEST too :)  )

Chateau at Paris A-
Chateau was good, but not the most fun.  It was super nice. Ladies drank free champagne. We left after about and hour. Paris casino was packed.


What I noticed most about Vegas is...
IF you go out, there is no where to stand at the clubs unless you buy a table which is outrageous prices. The best thing is to go early and then once you can't move you leave!! Usually ladies drink free until midnight.

It is such a great feeling planning over the computer and then seeing it in person. People don't understand how much work we all put in to planning over the phone/computer!

Alcohol is outrageous in prices. $9 a beer? WOW!

The entire night FLIES by! Why why why!!!! Please enjoy every moment, it flies!

Any other questions feel free to ask. We ate a bunch of places everywhere but can't think of them at the moment. We loved the miracle mile mall connected to Planet Hollywood. Aria was HUGE but nice.  The Cosmopolitan was soooo nice, classy, and young crowd. The chandelier bar was unreal. 

We are at the airport on our way home and miss our doggie!

Good luck planning and Vegas is the way to goooooooooooo!!!!!!!!! You all will have so much fun!!!

    Might want to edit the part about the photographer going out on his own in two months since I assume that means he was telling you about his own future business plans that would be competing with the company he currently works for; if I was his boss and read your post I'd be having a talk with him right about now.

    Glad things went so well for you though, congrats!

    I want to hear about the place with free champagne. Was that for a special night or with the bachelorette party?

    For the weeks we were there, there was free champagne for ladies at Chateau on Tuesdays until midnight and at Blush at Wynn on Tuesdays, for ALL ladies. Free well drinks for ladies on Wednesdays at LAX but I think it was from 11-12. Also free champagne at PURE on Thursdays for all ladies, and Crown nightclub.
    I had heard free champagne for ladies on Thursdays but we never checked out Crown.

    The lines for Blush and XS on Saturdays was the craziest thing I've ever seen. XS on Saturdays must have had 1,000 people waiting for hours in line. I guess that's Vegas!
