I’ve already spent two whole blog posts gushing over the Platinum Hotel as a wedding venue. Of course I can’t forget to mention the other Las Vegas Wedding vendors we selected to handle our cupcakes and hair and makeup!
Our Wedding Cupcakes
Choosing cupcakes for our wedding without being able to see and taste samples was a bit scary! Selecting a baker from afar was equally worrisome! After researching Las Vegas bakeries, and skimming bakery websites, we settled on the Retro Bakery. The website featured a number of fun flavors, and they reviews were stellar. Now we had to select flavors. This was tough. With flavors like “Chocolate Fountain,” “Milk and Cookies,” and “Drumstick” I would like to have had one of each. Shane and I settled on “Peanut Butter Cup,” “Hopscotch,” “Pink Lemonade” and “Cookies and Cream.” The staff came and set up our cupcakes on a cupcake tower, with our small bride and groom cake on top. The presentation was gorgeous. And the cupcakes were delicious. The flavor combinations were amazing. Luckily we ordered a “few” too many (okay…like a few dozen too many). For our remaining days in Vegas, Shane and I feasted on wedding cupcakes. Heaven. So, if you are looking for a Vegas bakery to provide cupcakes or a wedding cake (they do those too), check out the Retro Bakery. You won’t be disappointed!
Hair and Makeup
I have never had my hair and makeup professionally done for anything. This was new and exciting territory! As you can imagine, there are way too many hairstylists and makeup artists to choose from in Las Vegas. The hotel gave us a list of preferred Las Vegas Wedding vendors. I decided to go with one of the preferred hairstylist/makeup artist teams, The Glamsquad 702. The team arrived right on time, about an hour and a half before the photographer was to arrive. They started with my mom’s hair right away. Then they moved onto mine, asking to see my inspiration pictures to ensure they did exactly what I wanted. The guys made me feel like a VIP. This was certainly a first for me. Our hair and my makeup was beautiful. I would certainly recommend The Glamsquad 702 for your bridal hair and makeup.
