01.21.2012 Reviews!! LONGGGGG

Hello knotties!

Our wedding was amazing!!  I hope these reviews help!!

Mandalay Bay Room Reservations: A
We showed up the Wednesday before our wedding and checked into our regular room for the trip.  While checking in I just happened to ask if there was any chance we could get a room upgrade,,,the guy checking us in winked and said "let's see what we can do for you!"...we ended up gettting a suite,,,which was VERY nice and spacious! 
On Friday we checked into our Vista Suite,,,I went downstairs to check in and our room wasn't ready...they said to come back in an hour.  I went back and the girl was like okay we have one ready for you I asked the room number because the other girl said it was room 32... and she said no it's 18... - no view of the strip!  I was a little upset because I had specifically asked for a strip view and the girl said the room had to be checked on by maintenance so they cannot release it right away...she said if I was willing to wait 2 hours we could have it....sure why not! We got the room and it was perfect! Very spacious and nice! A few scratches on the tables etc...but overall a great room!

Francesca Lombardo: A++++++++++++++
What an amazing person!  She made me feel great!  Thursday I had my trial with Francesca...it was great! She also changed my look so when I went out with the girls it didn't look exactly like it would on the wedding day. 
Saturday Francesca showed up at 7:30am...she started with the mom's, then the BM's...then me...She helped me stay calm when it was getting closer to the time and I LOVED my hair and makeup!  Everyone loooked amazing!  She even got the moms to wear false eyelashes!! 

Mandalay Bay THEwedding Chapel:A
My WC was Jaimie...she was great to work with...very quick at returning emails,  There was a little mix up with the flowers that I was a little upset about...(the colours were wrong) but it was a little tooo late to do anything about it...and I had signed the contract...(there was a lot of issues with the flowers during the signing process so finallly when the right amount was on the contract I signed it without realizing the colours were wrong).  Our Minister was Rudy..he was AMAZING! He made it feel as though we were the only ones in the rooom and the ceremony was perfect...exactly what we wanted...short and sweet!

Cashman: A
I would give cashman A+++ except the prices were RIDICULOUS!  We loved almost every picture we saw...but I couldn't think of spending that much on the rights of my pictures. We ended up buying about 20 pictures extra that weren't included in our package...we spent a lot extra but it was well worth it! Also, the video turned out great! We had a lot of people who couldn't make it and they were all raving about the quality of the video!!

Bently & Wilson: A+++++++++++++++
Todd was amazing!  He brought along Dionne (not sure of the spelling) and they must have captured hundreds of pictures!  We haven't received them yet but I am sure they will be amazing!  He was so easy going and just letting us do whatever we wanted...it was great!


Double Decker Bus: A++++++++++++++++
Michael was great to work with during the planning of the bus tour.  We chose to go with Elvis as an impersonator (Steve Conolly).  We had the tour for two hours and it was a blast! Everyone is still talking about it!  It was great because the people who were in Vegas for only a few days and didn't have time to go to Fremont street were able to experience that on the bus.  It was a little chilly but no one wanted to sit downstairs because it was so much fun upstairs with Elvis!!

Masterpiece Cuisine: A+++++++++++++++++++
Amazing food! Scott was great to work with and the price was great too!  They delivered right on time and set everything up.  I didn't get to try everything but it loooked so delicious!

Retro Bakery:A+++++++++++++
We ordered 5dz cupcakes...chocolate fountain, cherry cheesecake, vanilla loves vanilla, cookies and cream and peanut butter cup...I was able to try peanut butter cup and cherry cheesecake and they were AMAZING!   They were gone by the next day!  Kari was great to work with and they delivered right on time!

Debi - Fit for a bride: A++++++++++++++++
Debi was great to work with!  They picked up the dresses and returned them the next day...my dress looked awesome..she stuffed it was tissue paper and it looked so cool!  An amazing lady to work with!

Matrimony Chips: A+++++
We ordered chips with our wedding date and a lcute saying on the back for our favours...everyone loved them and they were so easy to work with!

Zazzle.com: A++++++++++++++
We ordered our STDs, invitations and room number cards from zazzle and they were awesome!  Fast delivery and looked great!

Absolute Beverage: A+++++++++++++++++
Lynn was great to work with!  We wanted to get a bartender for our insuite reception so we planned with Lynn to get one.  David arrived the night of our wedding and he was great!  He even showed up with a cooler for ice for us!! (we brought two styrofoam containers but were happy to have an actual cooler).

Liquor Outlet: A+++++++++++
Jack was great to work with!  I told him our budget and what we wanted and he put it together for us.  Friday we went to pick it up and it was sitting there waiting for us...we had wayyy too much alcohol...but we didn't want to run out!!


I think that's it!!! Overall our day was amazing!

    Yay, I've been looking forward to your reviews as we are using a few of the same vendors (MB, Francesca and Todd).  I'm glad to see it all worked it so well.  Thanks for sharing and congrats on being a Mrs.

    Congratulations, MRS!  That's so fantastic :)

    I have a few questions, too, since we're sharing some vendors!

    How long was your MB ceremony?

    Was the DD bus on a different day?  Did everyone get off the bus at Fremont Street or stay on?

    TIA :)

    [QUOTE]I'm so happy everything went off without a hitch (except the flowers). Out of curiosity, what color were the flowers supposed to be, and what did you end up with? That sounds like something that would happen to me. :) I have FI read everything because contracts confuse me. ;)

    The flowers were suppose to be white....the gm's looked a lil funny cause one had white and one red....a lil noticeable....

    Awesome!  Thanks for the info :) :)  I'm having the DD bus pick everyone up about 30 minutes after the ceremony, which totally gives us enough time to FIND the bus (which I hear is the hardest part at MB!).
