The Best Bridal Suites in Las Vegas
The Best Bridal Suites in Las Vegas
The bridal suite is not just a hotel room, it’s a sanctuary. It’s the room where your mother and your bridal party first see you as a full-blown bride—dress, veil, makeup and hair done, ready to walk down the aisle. It’s the place where you attach your something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. It’s your final stop on the journey to becoming a Mrs. and it needs to be beautiful. We’ve compiled the most gorgeous Las Vegas bridal suites and tips for making that important part of your big day run smoothly.
Between conventions, special events, and holidays, Vegas gets booked up quickly and early. To maximize your options and minimize the cost, you need to plan at least three months in advance.
Pro tip: Get to the ceremony in style by renting a vintage car. Legends Car Rentals has a 1967 Ford Mustang GT Convertible, a Porsche Speedster Convertible Tribute 356, and more classics that will make for incredible photos.
CHOOSE A BEAUTIFUL BRIDAL SUITE
Your bridal suite may be all yours, but on your wedding day, you’ll have to share it with makeup artists, hair stylists, your bridal party, and your family—at a minimum! You don’t want to be cramped as you juggle hosting and getting ready. Book a connecting suite to ensure your loved ones have all the space they need while you primp in the next room. Ask your bridesmaids to help you set up a mimosa or bloody mary bar so guests can serve themselves drinks and put out some snacks for them to nosh on. Don’t forget to eat yourself as it’s going to be a long (and joyous) day.
You could host your entire party in the bathroom of the Siena Suite at The Palazzo Resort Hotel & Casino. In addition to its massive Italian marble bathroom with twin sinks, this suite boasts a plush vanity with a magnifying makeup mirror that lights up and helps you see every angle. Combine the Siena Suite with the spacious Bella Suite for nearly 2,000 square feet for you and your bridesmaids to stretch out in.
The Delano Las Vegas’ white-on-white, beach-chic aesthetic sets the mood for a tranquil wedding day. Set up drinks at two wet bars in the Delano King Suite + Delano Queen Suite, which also has two living rooms and two powder rooms for guests to enjoy. Have one of the master bathrooms all to yourself (and your glam team) and make time to relax in one of the deep soaking tubs before the chaos begins.
Escape any wedding worries in the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ Lanai Suite, a two-story loft with crisp, island-inspired white-and-blue contemporary decor. Take a dip in the suite’s private jacuzzi before your guests arrive and then head upstairs to get ready in the master bathroom’s double vanity. For some of the best photo ops in Vegas, go for one of the Cosmopolitan’s balcony rooms. Take in panoramic views of Las Vegas from two private terraces, including one wraparound terrace, in the Wraparound Terrace Suite + Terrace One Bedroom. Ideal for entertaining, this connecting suite boasts four sofas, a dining table for four, and three bathrooms.
Sleep in a suite fit for a queen in Paris Las Vegas’ Louis XV Suite. This Versailles-inspired, mini-palace charms with ornate chandeliers, a baby grand piano, and incredible views of the Eiffel Tower. Five bathrooms ensure your entire wedding party will have plenty of space to get ready.
Pro tip: A bridal suite is the perfect setting for a pre-wedding photoshoot. Capture the details of your dress, veil, bouquet, jewelry, and shoes and include some shots of your bridal party helping you get dressed. Scope out spots in the suite with diffused natural light, which will yield the best images.
BRING THE SALON TO YOU
Treasure every minute of your wedding day, and save time by having your glam team come to your hotel room. While your hotel may offer such amenities at a cost, new on-demand apps make it easy and affordable to have beauty professionals provide your wedding hair, makeup, and nails. TheGlamApp features stylists at four levels, from recent beauty school grads to VIPs with five years of experience or more. Browse through trendy styles, from tousled hair to updos, so you know exactly what you’re getting before the stylist arrives. BeGlammed caters to groups and weddings with options for both the bride and her bridesmaids and makes a guarantee that its artists have all undergone background checks. The bridal menu includes airbrush makeup, faux lashes, and touch-ups.
Pro tip: Cash tips are not accepted, so be sure to tip on the app.
DON’T FORGET THE EMERGENCY KIT
Murphy’s law—“anything that can go wrong will go wrong”—still applies on your wedding day. But you won’t sweat it because you’ll be prepared! Ask your mom or maid of honor to prep an emergency kit for the big day, which you should bring with you to the ceremony. We recommend packing a sewing kit with sewing needles, a pair of scissors, hem tape, and thread that matches the bride’s gown, bridemaids’ dresses, and groom’s suit; clear nail polish, super glue, and nail file (to fix a broken nail); a makeup touch up kit; bobby pins, hair ties, hair spray, and a brush; band-aids in case anyone gets a blister; toothbrush, floss, and mints; deodorant; tampons and sanitary napkins; Advil, Tylenol, or a pain reliever of your choice; and tissues, of course, lots and lots of tissues.
Pro tip: A makeup kit should not only contain lipstick, mascara, and concealer, but also a drinking straw, so the bride can hydrate without smudging her lipstick.
