Wedding Reviews-Las Vegas Vendors

Overall everyone was fantastic, marketing will never beat word of mouth, I chose all these vendors due to recommendations from other Knotties. We planned the wedding in 4 months while we were still in Iraq so that should tell you something for how responsive and helpful they all were. I love them all

Planet Hollywood Resort: A

Check-in was uneventful, due to the group reservation we were able to check in at the Diamond registration desk which avoided the long lines. We were also upgraded to a strip suite once I told them about the wedding.

Yolo’s (Welcome Dinner): C

Communication was poor.  I received a call from the event manager the day before the dinner and told me I hadn’t given him the final details with menu selections. Obviously he never read the email I had sent him over a month prior. The day of I got a call 30 minutes prior to dinner time stating the table was ready, we rushed down to the restaurant were they proceeded to rush the rest of the dinner. They also didn’t give us an option on what type of meat our guests wanted. The fact that there was no private or semi-private area made the dinner even more impersonal as I could tell they were waiting for us to move out. 4 of our guests didn’t make it to the dinner they didn’t even offer the extra plates or offered to box them for us to take home. It would’ve been a nice gesture as I had already paid for them.

Planet Hollywood-The Chapel: A+

The wedding consultant at the the chapel was always responsive and they gave us a military discount. We paid an outside vendor fee for the photographer and he took all the pictures of the day. They allowed me to use flowers from an outside vendor and walk down the aisle with them, their attitude was: “it’s my wedding so I can do whatever I want”. I would highly recommend them!!!

Lawry’s The Prime Rib (Reception Dinner): A+

The service was phenomenal, from the sales manager to the hostess we had. The room looked beautiful and they set it up to my instructions, they even allowed me to have my own cake and flower vendor without paying any fees or having any restrictions. The food was wonderful and everyone raved about it.

Todd Wilson (Photographer): A+

Todd was great, he took pictures from the moment he walked in to the moment he left, we even invited him to have dinner with us. He along with the limo driver managed the time for the photo strip tour very well, we made 4 stops in 2.5 hrs. Can’t wait for pictures! Update: Pictures are in, 11 day after the wedding! He took an impressive 1700 pictures and edited and printed close to 200 for me. He was very personable and even stayed for dinner with us after we insisted.

Francesca @ Bobby Pin Beauty (Hair/Make-Up): A+

She was great, communication was excellent and she patiently waited for my mother after she was late. My make up lasted all night in fact I was worried that it wouldn’t come off, I had to wash my face 4 times to get it all off. My husband couldn’t stop telling me how beautiful I Iooked all night.

Mon Ami Gabi (Morning After Brunch): A++

My Total Experiences contact made the reservation for us, they had the table ready in a beautiful private room with views to the Bellagio fountains, the food was to die for, I think it was my favorite meal in Vegas!! Prices were reasonable in fact we ended up paying the tab even though it was originally a no-host brunch. Highly Recommend

Presidential Limo: A+
 We had the limo bus for the strip tour between the ceremony and reception. We were greeted with roses (the women) and champagne on the bus. Mr. E thought we had a very cordial driver who made sure all the ladies were helped on and off the bus. The driver along with Todd made sure we hit all the spots we wanted for pictures with plenty of time to make it to the reception.

Bells Trans: A

They provided a bus for the return trip from the reception area to Planet Hollywood, we asked them to make another stop for one of our guests and they were happy to do so.

The Palette (Flowers): A+

Pam was very helpful and great at suggesting ways to cut costs on flowers, they looked great and were delivered on time. See pictures!

Debi at Fit for a Bride: A+

A lifesaver!!!! Not sure what I would’ve done without her, she received and delivered our dress and uniform and picked it up after the wedding for cleaning and shipment back home. She also held it since we were going on our honeymoon right after.

Aracelli Zea (Cake): A++

She called me a couple of days before to make sure I approved of the flower placements, I ordered one but she had 2 on the cake. I was so looking forward to cake but I as so full from dinner. There was plenty of cake for all, the portions were huge and we still had left over in fact we had the top tier cut at brunch for everyone. Loved the flavor and must say that the fondant was not bad tasting, it was fresh and sweet. I would seriously order another cake from her next year for our anniversary since we couldn’t save ours. Highly recommend!!!
