Silly Vista Suite question

So what does the hallway outside the room look like?  Since we're doing both the ceremony and reception in-suite, we're doing the family formals outside while the bar and buffet open up inside.  I'm just worried that it won't look nice enough within earshot of the room (so we can call out people as necessary, and let them party when we don't need them) for pictures, and that I might need to bring something to dress it up a bit.
This is a neglected planning bio.

Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284

    Can you take the group with you and take shots down in the Casino? I think there is a very pretty stair case that is near the entrance of the Four Seasons section of MB. I am just thinking the pic's would be very plain....IMO. But this is still a good question because I would be fun to get a pic before entering the Suite...

    Our guest list is only WP and immediate family, so literally just about every guest will have to be in at least one formal shot (except for a couple of dates).  That's why we think it's easiest to have them as close to the reception as possible, so people aren't just twiddling their thumbs while waiting their turn.  Then we could go back into the room and be announced to formally kick off the party...

    It sounds good on paper, I'm just worried it won't look quite right in practice.

    Humm.....The food and stuff is going to getting set up during this time right? So would it be so bad to make a group trip out of it? I am having a hard time envisioning the hall wall being enough of a back drop?.....Well.....I am planning on making a trip next weekend so maybe I can snap a pic of the halls for you? Hey...maybe even see if one of us actually can see the Suite!! lol

    The food is going to be set up pre-ceremony, so guests will be able to dive in as soon as we're out the door.   There's not a great deal of wiggle room in the timeline; we've only alloted about 20 minutes for formals because I don't want to spend my entire two hour reception wrangling people for the photographer, which is a dangerous possibility if we try to relocate everyone at once.  I'm a producer, company moves are death.

    So we're pretty locked into this plan.  I'm willing to bring something to dress up the area a bit if necessary, but I don't want to go to the effort if I don't have to.  I know the hallway just outside the Terrace Suite at MGM had a couple of nice setpieces, so I'm hoping Mandalay Bay has the same.
