Happy Tuesday all,
I just wanted to report that I followed the advice of this thread (http://forums.theknot.com/discussion/915240/need-help-from-past-brides-who-took-pictures-at-cosmopolitan
) regarding contacting the PR dept at Cosmo to get the appropriate paperwork to have photos taken inside the hotel. The response I received was:
appreciate your interest in The Cosmopolitan, unfortunately, we must
politely decline this request. Per resort policy, professional
photography/videography for personal use, anywhere in the resort, is not
permitted. The only time
an exception is made is when the actual wedding occurs on property,
however, it is supervised by our Celebrations Team and photography is
coordinated through their official vendor only.
So future brides: if you're not actually getting married at Cosmo, I'd just go ahead and wing it and try not to get kicked out. You're probably better off trying to take pictures on the second floor.
Next question re: Wicked Spoon. We are getting the private room and will be closing it off. I would like to have some toasts. Do you think we need a microphone or anything like that if we have 50 guests in this closed off space? I don't imagine so, but I also want people to be able to hear.
Last question. I want to order a cake just so we can cut the cake and keep some for an anniversary. There are going to be so many fabulous desserts on the line that I'm not sure everyone will want cake, but I want to make sure to have enough that those who want "cake to have cake" can have some. I've read that the serving sizes for the cakes at WS are HUGE, so I'm thinking the 10" cake that "serves 16" will be plenty for our group of 50. Thoughts?
