Shark Reef wedding next year.

Recommended Posts

Hello All,


I stumbled upon this site, and I think it is wonderful!! Maybe all of you could help me with some of my worries...


First I am getting married at The Mandalay Bay Shark Reef, and if anyone is familiar with that ceremony they know how early it starts... Ceremony at 9 AM and the bride has to be there by 8:20 am... well having a morning wedding is perfect for me... but I have noticed that none of the Hair Salon's are open at 6:30--7AM, so that is my dilemma.. Where can I get my hair done in the wee hours of the morning for my 9AM Ceremony???


Second off... this may seem very silly (sorry in advance) How do I get my wedding dress from Michigan to Las Vegas without it becoming wrinkled? If I have to pack it in a separate suitcase that is totally fine with me... I was just curious...


Thanks for all your help..

Hi Lindsay! Welcome to BDW :)


Mandalay is my fave casino and place to stay in Vegas. A shark reef wedding sounds so awesome. I would ask your wedding coordinator (WC) to see what they recommend for hair and makeup. Or search the forum for some independant artists that could come to your room that morning.


Also, there are a ton of threads about carrying your dress on planes. Overall you put it in it's bag and carry it with you. Most airplanes don't have closets anymore so you just lay it on top of the overhead baggage. Check with your airline for their policies on carry-ons because they are all different.


Searches on the forum will be your best friend for most of your questions. Happy planning!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
