I was wondering if you did this? I am getting married on the Mandalay beach in less then a month; with the suite reception.
This route was cheaper then at home, but we are spending about $200/guest (40 guests). I have had a few concerns along the way, so wanted to inquire about the experience.

We are thinking about doing this too! How was your experience and would you recommend it?

We had a wonderful wedding!!!
Michelle was our wedding coordinator, and she was amazing. The beach was spotted, decorated well, and felt very intimate & private. Mandalay Bay can accommodate most requests (make up & hair, etc...) and a picture is all that is needed for special requests (flowers, cake, etc....) The pool at Mandalay is truly a great setting for a night time wedding.
The Spa suite is offered to Brides & Grooms at a great rate and is a large spacious room. (We stayed the entire week, and everyone used our room as a 'meeting' point because of the space to accommodate)
I would recommend doing the In-Suite reception (Includes liquor & champagne toast, food, and beautiful wedding cake). ( L-Suite is beautiful) Service is provided (Bartender and Meat Carver) and the room is then the couple's for the night. The suite was large enough for all the girls & mothers to get ready in prior to the wedding. The room is also 'piped' for sound, so our guest danced the night away to an I-pod mix.
Things to be aware of:
All reservations OTHER than the day of the wedding are your responsibility - no one from the Wedding Chapel will make these for you. (Example: Our rehearsal dinner - it was up to us to call different restaurants in the hotel and work out separate arrangements and contracts.) This does make planning events in a different state/city a little more difficult.
If you want to bring your own photographer - there are restrictions applied by Mandalay Bay's Vendors. (We had to purchase separate pics of the ceremony from Mandalay Bay - our photographer was not allowed to shoot any pics on the beach)
The 'service' at Mandalay Bay was a little disappointing. As a couple, we spent quite a bit of money (Wedding, reception, dinners, events) and brought 40 additional guest who all spent money; yet were somewhat treated like we had used a free coupon for the weekend....lol.
I hope this helps!!!! Overall - this wedding is well worth the costs & is truly unique.
