    My only thoughts are on the first item; I'd rent the glassware.  You only get married once, ideally :-), I'd prefer to remember it with real glasses.

    Glassware: Not sure about the kitchen/ bartending space but depending on how many people you're having that could be very messy with used glasses and the bar keep having to constantly be washing if you have heavy drinkers. I think the disposable ones are a great option.

    Chairs: wondered this myself so no help here.

    Candles: Floating are generally cheaper than large pillars. Do you have a Old Time Pottery in you area? Dollar tree is a good place as well as the usual suspects Michaels etc.

    Glassware:  We went plastic and used over 400 cups.  There was no where we could have kept 400 real glasses clean or dirty in the suite.

    Chairs - We had a really hard time getting Planet Hollywood to give us a table, that was supposed to be in the room.  I'm not sure Mandalay would give you anything, but might rent them to you through their catering, room service or convention center.  I would also check out RVSP Rentals, past Knotties have rented different kinds of items from them in the past without issue.link

    Candles - Votives tend to be less mess, since the only place the candle is melting into is the cup.  As far as where to get candle holders, I purchased very inexpensive ones from Ikea in our wedding colors.  And I second the dollar store, I have purchased many candle holders for company parties there.

    I'm also curious if MB will give you any extra chairs.  Let me know what they say.  I was told by my wedding coordinator that they cannot provide extra chairs because of Nevada State fire codes or something along those lines.  Each suite is  only allowed a certain # of chairs.

    In the course of the night we had 130 people, we started at 7pm and wound down around 1am.

    I second IKEA for candles.  I bought 250 small votives (in little tins) for a party once.  They did burn out within 2 hours, but they have lots of other inexpensive options.

    Re: disposable glasses, I'm partial to http://www.smartyhadaparty.com/Category333-Category_-_Cocktail_Glasses.aspx. At least they aren't all the same.

    I bought 200 10 oz disposable cups from smartyhadaparty. Very pleased with them. I also got 100 shot glasses. With all this talk, I may order some disposable wine glasses/champagne flutes. We expect to only have 60 at most,  and I bought more than Culinary Pros suggested for my guest count.

    I was just deciding on this myself.  For our 50-60 guest count I think we are going to do plastic glasses for mixed drinks, beer and champagne, but for wine I think I want those to be glass so we'll get about 30 wine glasses. 

    We are going to rent extra folding chairs just in case they are needed.  Our suite has 29 seating spaces, so we're going to rent about 15 chairs from the rental co.

    We're also going to rent about 5 high top tables.

    They reccommended  300 10 oz tumblers for 100 people. They also suggest 300 cocktail napkins.

    OP - You mentioned using the hospitality suite? I think in that case you could extra chairs from Mandalay as that suite is intended to be used that way. You could also probably get extra glasses. We were in the Vista Suite and just called down and had them bring us like 10 wine glasses. I can't remember if they charged us.

    [QUOTE]Sara - I like the high boy idea.  Are you using RSVP?  I might not even bother with MB for extra chairs, because I don't want any fuss with them.  Magic - Thanks for sharing your numbers.  I'll definitely be getting napkins and swizzle sticks.

    Not sure who we are using yet, I'm waiting for a vendor to get me back on their prices.  So far RSVP and Rebel Party Rental (who Aegrish used), are both the exact same prices for the stuff we'd need, so hoping this 3rd one may come out cheaper.  I can keep you posted.  That was my thought too on not wanting to fuss with MB.

    We have the hospitality suite too and I like the idea of plastic cups. Less mess to clean up!

    We're planning for 100 people, but Im not to worried about the chairs. This suite is just for cake, drinks, and music. We're having lunch in the MB buffet after our ceremony.

    And I'm still undecided about the candles...but I may get some aroma candles for the bathrooms Laughing

    Thanks for this post! Perfect timing too, I need to order my cups this week! And I love the smarty website!! Thanks ladies!

    [QUOTE]Justine, I think a bunch of brides ship to the nearest UPS store or directly to their reception venue if they are using a restaurant.  I've heard you can ship directly to your hotel, but theirs an additional fee for them to hold your boxes for you.
