    These policies exist to deal with the extremes, not with the gray areas of "I snuck one person up to my room" or "I brought a couple bottles of wine up." Don't overthink it.

    I've checked in multiple times while chugging from an open bottle of champagne at the front desk...:haha:...nobody cares.

    I was there in August, and elevator security was out every time I went to my room. Room cards had to be flashed unless they were tapped on the scanner (or whatever it's called on the wall). I didn't see any problems with groups of 2...but did see them stop groups of 4 adults with only 1 key. Last year I saw them prevent 2 people from coming up with a couple going into the tower suites as they weren't registered. While I believe they've had their policy for awhile, I didn't see security at the elevators until after that big fight broke out over at Encore. Personally, I like the enhanced security and it makes me feel comfortable staying there.

    Just stayed at Wynn and hubby and I going to room only had to scan one card and a live security guard always on duty. I don’t see any reason why the FOB/MOB couldn’t accompany the daughter to her room. (We did see security stop a group of four or five and pulled them aside, not sure of the outcome).

    At the Mirage, on suite floors, your room key is required to key you to your specific floor, so no key, no entry.

    Carry a grocery/tote bag or back pack with your ‘stuff’, no reason they would prevent or even question that. It’s the coolers and party trays that are out of bounds.

    I was just at encore to go to the spa and there was a security guard before the elevators to ensure you were a guest before going up. Worst case. Say you’re going to the spa. But it really won’t be a problem if the parents get a key from the daughter and they will be able to go up without any issues. As far as outside food/drinks, you’ll be fine if you’re bringing whatever you want snd out it in suitcase or bag. Even if not covered, if it’s for your own consumption, you should be fine…

    Just another personal anecdote -- I've gone to hang out with others staying somewhere that I'm not, and have never had a problem (at Wynn, or otherwise) with just having them give me a key that'll scan. There's no checking on the name or anything, they just are looking for a valid room key. And, as noted, may places are shifting toward requiring a key scan to access the elevator (Aria, for example, used to just do a visual check of room keys, but has since installed scanners in the elevators).

    If the wedding is there, you (He?) got a huge out, you'll be fine,
    and not that I know but as mentioned that's like giant rolly cooler boilerplate,
    soft side coolers for say a few bottles of wine or six pack won't get a second look.
    or as mentioned, a nice bottle in a paper bag-
    He plays the father of the bride card and what they gonna do?

    and yeah, like @44inarow says, just have her get two extra keys and give him one.

    I always get an extra key just to increase the odds it's in the pocket I think it is in.

    I like how you just said "increase the odds" rather than "ensure". The only thing I lose faster than room keys is Mlife cards.

    I think all LV hotels have about the same guidelines for bringing in F&B. How they follow those rules varies. As long as you're not blatant, ther shouldn't be a problem. I think the only way to have a room visitor would be to have them accompanied to the room by the occupant. This is pretty standard.

    So, first hand knowledge here..
    I got married at the Wynn!
    Unfortunately or fortunately I was Divorced in LA though lol..
    Mine was a 8 page document at the time with rules and regulations.

    There will be no issue at all with getting up to the rooms and suites a long as you are with a hotel guest or have an extra key.
    Outside food and beverage? I brought in 6 cases of Veuve and many were carrying around their own bottle without an issue but they weren't overly flaunting it. No were they stumbling drunk at all.
    Yes, they will lock the chapel as soon as it starts but there will be people there to let stragglers in. Security will be there too.
    Enjoy your time and may their marriage last longer than mine!!

    I'd prefer a Hilton timeshare over a room at the Wynn any day...I haven't stayed in a Vegas hotel in years now..I like having the full kitchen and not having to walk miles to get to your room...I have never stayed at Wynn but I expect that the rooms at Trump are as nice or nicer than Wynn. While you'd never know it if you went to Trump (there are no signs anywhere that say Hilton Grand Vacations Club), Hilton bought a number of floors at Trump and Trump is one of the Las Vegas HGVC locations. The kitchens are very nice there and the master bathroom in a one-bedroom unit is HUGE. There is also a full bathroom off of the living room (typical size bathroom). Do the suites at Wynn have a full kitchen?

    I would have booked our wedding group at HGVC Trump but the one thing I don't like about the resort is that they only have valet parking, no self park. I prefer to not have valets in & out of my car during Covid...

    Huge difference in both standards and expectations. If you like timeshares then you like timeshares. Most people who go to Vegas aren't interested in a kitchen, and if you're not concerned about that Wynn/Encore are widely accepted as having the nicest standard hotel rooms in Las Vegas. Timeshares are effectivley like a condo rental where longer stays are more normal and some in room cooking etc is expected. Staying there is a different type of Vegas vacation.

    I don't know of many rooms in vegas with full kitchens as that's counterintuitive to what they are trying to accomplish. Even a fairway villa doesn't have a kitchen and that, I believe is their biggest suite.

    As to the boilerplate policies, cooler rules have been at pretty much every place I have ever stayed ever that is an actual hotel (not a timeshare). And in many cases when I was younger and cheap we brought them anyway. Never had an issue, but it gives them some leeway if there is a problem in the room (loud party) to have multiple rule violations if they have to kick you out. Just because people don't read the super fine print when reserving, doesn't mean it's not there. All that matters is when and how it's enforced.

    As to the bringing people up to a room, same thing. Can the father of the bride go up to see the bride in her room, yes, but he will need a guest to take him up. Can the bride take 10 people to party in their suite for the night, probably not. How specific they want to get is up to each property, but saying you have to be a guest to go up is again another layer of protection if there is a problem. Again this is a standard rule at every property in las vegas that isn't a timeshare, but is only enforced if it needs to be.

    I recall pre-covid a VMB meetup hosted in a Cosmo suite where they were "sneaking" people up, but since nothing got out of hand nobody seemed to care.

    The only ones I can think of that come close are places like Vdara that double as condos; they don't always have ovens, but they have the other stuff like cooktop, fridge, etc. The Mansion rooms do have a range and I think an oven, but that's in the butler kitchen and not really a room amenity.
    Yeah, that's the biggest thing, in my experience. Too many people in a room, plus alcohol, generally leads to people forgetting to use their inside voices, which in turn bothers the other guests.
