Signature at MGM Grand
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
Staying here was nice enough, but it didn't come off as a 4 or 5 star hotel. Housekeeping, valet and their room service departments were all very slow. I stay in a lot of hotels for work and I have to say that this didn't really impress me. The rooms were nice, though, and we liked the pool.

Tabu Ultra Lounge at the MGM Grand
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
The staff is really good here, but they aren't used to doing wedding or social events. Instead, everything is based on their corporate packages. That basically means they are charging us way to much for stuff. Even more than wedding prices! (haha) They did a good job bending in some places, but there were others where they wouldn't budge: like the cost of the cake.

The artist, Hadley, is remarkably talented. We went to his shop and thought we would look around and then see some photos. Instead, he started to mock ups for us right there on the spot. How he could just see what would look good together was really cool. I was like a kid in a candy store! Once we started talking about the budget Hadley didn't get snippy or anything. Instead, he made suggestions as to different types of flowers that we could use to stay with the same look at a number that we could live with. I thought that was a really cool move. I didn't feel like he was trying to 'sell' me on anything. He's a great vendor!

Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino, a Sheraton Resort
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We rented an Apex suite so that we could have an after party that did *not* require a lofty catering bill for any in-room parties. Planet Hollywood was fantastic to work with and they even let us bring in our own food and drinks. How great that they weren't trying to nickel and dime us!

IKEA
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I wanted TONS of candles in all different sizes for the reception and the after party, and Ikea had prices that no one could beat. Everything looked great!

( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I still can't believe it when I hear my friends telling me they are having a hard time with their invitations. Mine were so easy! The American Wedding website made the process simple, and I just don't think you could beat the price. This was a flawless experience.

JLM Couture Flagship Salon
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
One thing all of my bridesmaids could agree on was that they loved Jim Hjelm design! The quality of the fabric and the integrity of the clothing is superior to all the cheesy bridesmaid dresses from years past.

Las Vegas Gift Shop
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
This is one of the outlets that sells actual casino playing cards that were used on the tables. We wanted some of these for our save the dates and their quality was terrific.

Old School Seals
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I love the look of wax seals but I didn't actually want to be melting wax for all of our invites. Old School Seals sells the stick on kind and they were perfect for what we were looking for! They also have a great eye for designing your monogram. This was a great find!

My fantastic wedding coordinator, Stephanie, recommended me to James and the Glamsquad team long before I even though about it. That was so smart because they book up early! Because we booked so many services (and because of Stephanie, I'm sure!) he actually gave me a complimentary trial. How nice was that!?!?! James is even better than what you're reading about from all of us.

CHELSEA IS BRILLIANT! We were so excited that she was available for our wedding day. I'm guessing that a few years from now I wouldn't be able to afford her because I'm positive she's going to be HUGE. She's just so incredibly talented! We really enjoyed having her with us on our wedding day.
