Rum Jungle at Mandalay Bay
Rum Jungle did a good job with our private party for over 60 guests. The food was very good and we all liked the cool atmosphere they had going on. The service was very good and we got VIP access to the night club as the evening went on. This was a fun location for our rehearsal dinner.

Raffles Cafe at Mandalay Bay
I love the Southern tradition of doing a bridesmaids luncheon as a thank you to the girls that are standing up for you. So I made plans to have one for my girls the day before the wedding at Raffles. The prices were reasonable at less than $25 a person and it just had a great casual chic vibe going.

wedding alterations by Mahtab
A friend who just got married referred me to Mahtab for my alterations, and I'm so glad she did! The process was so much easier and done in less than 1 week. Plus, she was nice, friendly and even nourturing. This was a completely different experience than going to Alfred Angelo's alterations department.

Cake Designs LV (aka Cakes by Ruth)
After calling around for wedding cakes it was refreshing to speak with Cakes by Ruth. They were so nice on the phone and excited talking to me about the cake instead of just trying to get my credit card number. I ordered a 3 tier dream cake that matched on the cakes on their website. The flavor was amazing and all of my friends were gushing about how good it was. Plus, Cake Designs LV was so much less expensive than the other places we talked to. Great value and quality!

After giving the hotel my proposed flower order I had complete sticker shock at how much their florists wanted to charge. I had gone to local florists to see what their rates would be and Vegas prices were nearly double. So I went through the web! 2G delivered more than just roses - I had mini calla lilies and gardenias, too. Everything looked great and was such a good price! I would tell future brides not to be afraid to order from this site because their quality was exceptional.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Mandalay Bay! The rooms were much larger than I thought they would be and very comfortable beds. Plus, I loved the drama of having floor to ceiling windows to take in the views. Since we had our wedding here, too, I got the pleasure of working with Angela in the wedding department. She did a great job and really stayed on top of everything for us. It was great not having to worry about things. Once I told her something I knew that she'd have it taken care of and I wouldn't have to bother following up on it again. She's just that good!

Rentals For Your Party
I loved having everything customized for the wedding day, and Everything For Your Party made it easy. I uploaded our custom designs and they took care of everything from water bottle labels to foil seals. Very cool! The prices were reasonable and the shipping was quick. Great vendors.

After all of the great reviews I've heard about James I was worried that he couldn't live up to my expectations. But he was even better than I hoped! He is a very talented makeup artist and his assistant was amazing with my fine hair. Even through the tears my makeup looked great and I really enjoyed his presence on my wedding day. Everything you've read is true!

As with all MB packages, Cashman is the exclusive ceremony photographer. We were pretty happy with the photos, but it was weird to me that they didn't take the time to get any photos of just the two of us on the MB property. Not the best photographic style and their photos had a lot of weird angles. I'm glad we hired our own photographer for the reception portion. I would have been very disappointed if their photos were all we had of the wedding day.

There are not adequate words to explain Ashley's great eye and her lovely nature while she is capturing your wedding. You hardly notice she's there, but then when you think "I'd like a photo of this!", there she is with her camera! She is so polite and easy to work with, and from the work I've seen, she's incredibly talented. She is worth every penny of package prices... and maybe even more!
