So, I completed my final worksheets recently and sent them off to the wedding planner I have at Mandalay Bay. On the floral section, I left blank and did not fill out as we have booked The Palette for our flowers. I know the policy states that there are no outside fresh flowers permitted at The Wedding Chapel. As with a lot of other things, I thought this was one of those things that you don't tell your wedding coordinator but quite often people do anyway. Well, I received an email this morning at work and she was questioning me on what we are doing for the flowers and reminded me of the policy and told me there would be a hefty outside vendor fee if I brought in my own. Ahh!!!!
I called her and played dumb and said that my bridesmaid was going to make all of the flower bouquets as a gift to us and didn't think it would be a big deal. Also, lied and said I thought the policy applied only to the chapel and maybe not Valley of the Falls. Anyway, she said I will have a $250 outside vendor charge if I do that.
Damn it, now it looks like I have to cancel The Palette and go with the Mandalay Bay florist. Their flowers suck in comparison!
Anyone have any photos to share of bouquets made by Mandalay Bay. I am talking about the standard ones included with package, medium size. And I need 5 petite bridesmaid bouquets as well. Not those fancy ones that come with an extra $150-200 up charge.
Thanks for listening.
