  1. @@roamfree check out my wedding website. I have an activities section that has some off-resort options explained. www.kimandryanwed.com I'm tried to attach the welcome info packet that I included. But it won't let me because its an adobe illustrator file. I'll try again later but here's a picture of it attached to my welcome bag. I included: Name tag, Pg1) Welcome Letter Pg2) Itinerary Pg3) Wedding Party Pg4) Resort Map (but my version had the schedule of events on it)
  2. @@mam9p8 Sorry for the delayed reply! Things have been a bit hectic since getting back (always is after a vacation right)! I wish I had better pictures at this point that show everything but I haven't gotten my professional pictures back yet First, I loved Oregano's for my reception! It was the perfect location. For cocktail hour, I'd recommend the beach area outside Oreganos. I was honestly pretty disappointed in the cocktail hour at Las Olas. I expected a bar set up and an appetizer table but they didn't do any of that and it was pretty awkward. I think they came around and took drink
  3. I'm wondering all those things too! I've gotten a little frustrated with the the resort taking so long to respond to emails so I've kind of given up contacting them about layout or space (or anything else). I am nervous about space for dinner + dance floor + dj. I'm going to bring my own string lights down at the very least for ambience. Ceremony is at the beach gazebo and cocktail is at las olas. I'll try to take good notes for you on the space come January!
  4. @@roamfree when is your wedding? Mine is in January and I'm having my reception at oreganos also with approx 40-50 people. I'll have Picts for you after that but I've also been looking for Picts of the setup and can't find any!
  5. @@roamfree The beach gazebo is a permanent structure and is not extra. I don't believe the curtains are extra either. @@vanessajfelice Congratulations!! I would love to see pictures when you get the chance! How was the food and what did you choose? Also, I'm trying to work on my detailed day of schedule. Did you have one and what was the estimated timeline for everything (hair/makeup, ceremony, dinner, toast, cake cutting, etc.)?
  6. @@JaimeCKL one thing to keep in mind about Chichen Itza is that it is a very long day and very touristy. I think it's about a 3hr drive each way. I'd highly recommend Tulum and Coba instead. Tulum is right by some of the most beautiful beaches and Coba is in the jungle (I.e. shade) and the only ruins you can still hike up. You could do both in a day and also fit in a cenote visit. We used Seasons Tours for our airport transportation. The driver was very nice and knowledgable and he also recommended Tulum over Chichen.
  7. @@lynne1609 You look beautiful! I'm sorry about the rain but it looks like you got some neat pictures out of it. Those palm trees blowing in the background and the color of that sky look awesome! @@vanessajfelice for some reason, I feel like I read somewhere that there is no lighting at las Olas but I can't remember where and I may be mixing that up with the beach. I'm thinking of bringing my own string lights down because they kind of gouge you at the resort but I'm having trouble finding where to buy some. Does anyone know what the "Love Birds Spa Treatment" is? Its listed on my fin
  8. @@Tighev oh my gosh, thank you! I spent forever trying to figure that out. Kept going to my media and trying to upload PDFs in my profile...
  9. @@mam9p8 If you want to have your reception at one of the restaurants, those might not be available on a certain day. For example, I know the Lobster House is only available on Fridays. I'm having mine at Oregano's on a Saturday and welcome dinner at Agave on Friday.

  10. Past brides, I'm trying to figure out the menu. What did you guys choose for the vegetarian entree? The options my WC sent are basically a potato, veggie lasagna or a veggie casserole and none of them sound that good.

  12. @@kathryn78 congratulations!! Wow 84 people? That's a great turn out! Did you have any issues with that many people whether for the wedding day or other days around the resort? I'm expecting 50 or so guests and was wondering how easy it would be to meet up with people at the martini bar or pool. I'd love to see pictures!
  13. @@KeriT21 I've looked into it and here's my thinking: if it were me and I was pregnant, I probably wouldn't go. If they are worried about it, I probably wouldn't do any excursions or leave the resort. I think you are prob fine on the resort but I would still wear bug spray. I got a little concerned about my fiancé because they don't know how long the virus can stay in sperm so if you're trying to get pregnant very soon it's something to look into. He HATES bug spray so I told him he either has to agree to wear it all the time or we cancel the wedding . He agreed and so with those precautions/c
  14. @@Tighev I just asked about having lights hung a couple weeks ago and she confirmed its a $50 fee for them to hang your own lights. I actually think that's pretty fair. I think other resorts charge a LOT more just to put out any decorations. I just ordered a bunch of different string lights from target as they are on sale and I'm going to see which ones I like best. The key is to make sure you can string together multiple strands. Some of the cheap ones you can only string together 2 or so strands. One girl suggested bringing them down in a cooler and just checking the cooler since the sides
  15. I didn't even think of lights for the cocktail hour at las Olas. I'm getting married in January, but I assume it will be fine. Does las Olas have any lights at all? @@LouisSLB32 I think the Lobster House should have sufficient lighting because they also serve dinner at the restaurant there, but some couples like to add additional lighting for the ambience. There are a few pictures in this thread that others have posted showing the Lobster House that should give you a good idea of the lighting set up. What day is your wedding? I know the Lobster House is only available on Fridays as we trie
