In Suite Reception Jitters

Re: In Suite Reception Jitters

  • Awesome pictures, dixxievegas! 

    For anyone curious, I counted about 36 people in that first picture.
  • Holy smokes, @dixxievegas, that's the view?! Shoot, I might just have to book a scouting trip at Caesar's (just add it to the list...)

  • For what it's worth, I don't think it's easy to get a tour of the rooms. I kind of lucked into it because I knew someone who knew someone. It's also nearly impossible to get a tour on the weekends because the suites are always booked. I saw Apex & Boulevard at PH and Emperor's and Absolut at CP all on the same day and I think it was a Monday afternoon.

    Yes, that shot was taken during a toast and a few folks had red eye flights out and had to leave before the toasts. There are a few folks standing on the stairs during that shot which you can't see and 6 of us standing on the second level balcony
  • I think I let my nerves get the best of me. I have my suite for one night. I went online to also book the day before and to my surprise, some had booked it just hours before my attempt!!! I started to stress about getting into my suite on time, and sneaking the caterers in without problems. Now I'm heavily convinced that I should change venues for the reception. I'm bummed. But the guest count is also larger than I originally imagined when I decided to do in suite. We have about 70 guests at this point. Anyone else been through this?
  • Are those 70 confirmed or 70 invited?

  • Those are confirmed. Give or take a few.
  • If you are considering changing, I know the Stardust suite in the Orleans is freaking enormous. Not sure what your budget or how far off-strip you're willing to go but Red Rock Casino also has some huge ones (we would have gone with them for sure if we had a few thousand more bucks in the budget). 
  • I personally could not check into the suite the same day as my event. I would be a nervous wreck!! Take a look at the Platinum Hotel. It was AMAZING!

    I still have the suite booked (I really don't know why) but I have found an off strip hall to host the reception. I would have preferred somewhere on strip but we had already paid off the Masterpiece balance. This place will allow me to use them, so I decided it was the better option. It was very hard to find a place on the strip that would allow outside catering. Yes, I think I would be a nervous wreck as well! I get butterflies just thinking about it now!

    Have you thought about Cosmo or Mandalay Bay? Neither advertise outside catering allowed, but both are very friendly with Masterpiece according to Scott. :)

    Xoeden, are you referring to in suite or ballroom at Cosmo? Do you all think 70 is tight for in suite?

    Crap, the quantity of people slipped my mind. 70 is way too tight for Como in-suite, no matter what they claim. I second the idea of the Platinum, or if you're really wild, downtown. It's either the D or Golden Nugget that have the MASSIVE suites for really cheap (~$800) that you should be able to get 70 in with no issue.

    Most brides have no issue with Masterpiece & Caesar's though with catering, so I'd just say bring some paper plates and plastic forks and let the good times roll.

  • hmgiffor, what suggestions do you have for Platinum. I'm no longer looking for in suites.
  • I recommend BOOKING!! You will not regret it. I personally liked the Misora ballroom but it only holds 70 people. The [email protected] is very nice as well (that's where we had our meet and greet). If possible, just go with an all-inclusive package. It includes EVERYTHING you could want (videography, photography, DJ, flowers, centerpieces, officiant, food). One thing I did add was uplighting which I am VERY glad I did. I think I may still have some videos that I could send it you want. 

    Once I switched to the Platinum...a HUGE weight was lifted.

  • I just checked their website but don't see any prices or reception only options. Do you still have your price list?
  • I think I do. Message me your email and I can send you videos (if I can find them) and the info.
