Trump International Hotel Las Vegas
We had a lovely wedding at the Trump!!! Leigh and Scott are the best!!!
We got married January 29, 2012 at the Trump Hotel in Vegas and we couldn't be happier. The wedding was perfect and the venue is just amazing. The architecture & design of the hotel plus the ceremony room at the 64 floor is different than everything else. The walls are glasses and because we got married at 5pm, the Vegas strip was part of the beautiful view we had up there. I recommend the Trump Hotel in Vegas to anybody who wants to have a chic and modern wedding.
Oh my goodness I do not have enough wonderful things to say about the Trump Plaza. From the doorman to the Wedding Planner, the service was amazing. Everyone was so nice and helpful. Everyone went above and beyond expectations. I cannot express enough how amazing everyone was. Then the hotel itself and where our wedding took place was so beautiful that really you needed minimal decorations as the location itself spoke volumes. The wedding planner was very good- it really required little on my part as they took care of everything. The morning of the wedding I was very sick and was getting my hair done, and the hair dresser and the wedding planner helped me so much- the wedding planner ran to the store to get me medicine and crackers. I cannot express my gratitude in words. It was really a great experience and could not have turned out more perfect.
Why does Trump only have 3 Stars overall? What is wrong with these people?
We rented the Empire Suite for 2 hours just for the wedding, and had them set up the chairs facing the window. It was beautiful; sunset and a wedding! All we had to do was ask and they re-arranged the chairs from there normal arrangement for us. We brought in someone to cover the chairs - they needed to be covered.
Personally, what made Trump so amazing wasn't the view, it was Carolynn. Carolynn at Trump was so amazing. She was genuine, and truly cared about all the details. She did everything to make the day perfect, and to really relax the groom (he really did all the planning - I'm so not kidding either). We didn't want to see each other before the wedding, she made that happen. She took us around Trump after the ceremony to show us and our photographer, DTyler, the best spots to take photos. She was fabulous, down right fabulous!
We had our reception on the North Deck. I liked that it was something different. The entire Trump Hotel is gorgeous and the North Deck is simply stunning. It worked really well for our group size and everyone complimented on the space and location…palm trees all around the deck with a view of Wynn & Encore. Food was amazing, everyone raved about all of it.
I had originally been working with Cynthia and closer to the wedding I started working with Carolyn. Sometimes there was a lack of communication between the 2. Cynthia said one thing, Carolyn said another. The weekend before the wedding Carolyn sent me a WEO, and everything was correct. The day before the wedding, I dropped off all of the décor & extras and met with both of them, and Carolyn even texted me later asking about the ribbon I had bought because she needed more and was going to go and pick it up for me. The day of the wedding was a bit windy and apparently Carolyn called my cell twice to get the approval to move in recpetion indoors, but I didn’t have my phone. She made the choice to leave it outside, but none of the lanterns could be hung and the candles all blew out. After the reception began Carolyn left and Scott (maybe??) took over. He was very nice and did anything I asked, but there was a lack of communication because he didn’t know about our engraved forks for the cake cutting, or that we were having a toast. As soon as I mentioned it, he took care of it thoiugh.
I am obligated to write this review because there are no reviews posted on the Trump as a ceremony venue and it would have been nice to have had something to go by. I had to change ceremony venues at the last minute (2 months before the wedding). We had already blocked off rooms at the Trump for our guests which was right across the street from our reception site so I called to inquire and the fates were on my side. They were available. We were having slightly over a hundred guests so we only had the option of an outdoor wedding (which was my preference) on the North Deck.
So, here are the pros and cons I faced.
Practically right on the strip; the hotel is classy for when guests arrive; reasonable rental rate for the ceremony venue; the area was private and no wandering or nosy hotel guests
Can be very windy and cold in the fall even though you're only on the 3rd floor; aside from the chairs and a coordinator for the day, everything else must be arranged/rented/provided by you (ie, flowers, music including sound system, officiant, arch rentals, table cloths, aisle runner, etc.) --- although they do provide an ample vendors list; if you have a large number of ceremony guests(more than 75 people), there is no indoor option in case of rain which to be fair is pretty infrequent in Vegas.
Since I didn't even see the North Deck until a few days before my wedding, I would tell future brides this ... the North Deck is really what you want to create out of it. It isn't cookie cutter standard with everything provided. It's quite the opposite ... it's what you make of it. You can spend the money and make it lavish with a string quartet and a gazebo full of flowers ... or you can save the money and make it simple with just flowers along the aisle. So, if you do have your wedding at the Trump --- take some time to envision what you want for your wedding and plan accordingly.
I was not completely pleased with the services. They were hard to contact and the service the day of my wedding was not the best. Thankfully I did not find out any of it until after I returned from the honeymoon.
Perched high above the Las Vegas Strip, our wedding banquet halls offer dazzling floor-to-ceiling views, elegant patio terraces and luxurious hotel accommodations. Exchange vows at sunset from the 64th floor, with views to the mountains beyond, "forever more" will be an integral part of the moment.
