  1. We got the ones from IKEA and just wrapped them around the poles at each corner. We had lanterns with lights in them that we hung also, and we ended up turning on the lights that are in las olas in each corner. So I would bring a decent amount. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. We had our reception at las olas and brought our own lights down. It was $50 for them to hang the lights! Hope that helps!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. We just used maracas Mexico also for our wedding in September and it was $200 for 20 maracas. It was like $5.50 each and there was a shipping cost. They were so responsive and I was a bit nervous at first because they had me send the money through western union but they were perfect!! Very easy to work with. I contacted them originally in feb, but fell out of communication until the beginning of august.
  4. Thank you so much! We actually rented the LOVE sign from Alquima- the vendor that does the extra decor. It was $400 including tax. We thought it would be a cool sign to give some light and to take pictures around! So, for the pictures, we thought the 2 hours was more than enough time. We did a first look from 4:30-4:50. Then we had the ceremony from 5-5:30, the cocktail hour from 5:30-6:30 and sat down for dinner after that. I think we actually probably did not even use her the full 2 hours we paid for. So, for the ceremony, they "give" 20 minutes for that in addition to what you rent them for. We did not want any of the getting ready or reception pics. Our big thing was our first look, the ceremony and pics after of us on the beach. So, we thought it was perfect! It really all depends on what you are looking for from your pictures. We did bring the lanterns and lights. We paid $50 for them to hang them. We brought 30 lanterns with little LED lights and the 4 sets of lights around the poles. We did not want the Las Olas lights on at all, but it turns out they only had enough time to hang 15 of them with only 1 of our LED lights in each, so we needed the las olas lights they have in the corner. Even with all of that, it was not too bright and we were happy with it. Our ceremony was at 5 and we probably turned on the lights around 7:30.
  5. Hello there! So I finally got our professional pictures uploaded on google photos. We just used beach wedding studios through the hotel for 2 hours and they were amazing! I believe they are called seasons wedding studio now. https://goo.gl/photos/bJf6TAdU16mhTmXF6 The gazebo is permanent and with the wedding packages, they will put the drapes around the poles and also the carpet runner and the starfish and shells along it. The food was amazing. We did the scallop with mixed greens for an app, seafood bisque for soup and then the filet and scallops app. We did the chocolate agavero cake for dessert and it was really rich. Then for our wedding cake we had 2 different flavors- one being tres leches which was SO GOOD. I only have a time line for our spa day and hair/makeup appts and then our photographer timeline for first look and ceremony. Once we sat down for the reception part, we just did it however we wanted since there was only 18 of us. I'm happy to answer anything else that anyone needs though! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. We just got back yesterday from Excellence! Our wedding was on Thursday and it was perfect. I have photos I can post the link to later tonight once I get them off the CD. So any questions, feel free to ask! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Good luck Jamie! We arrive on your wedding day, so I will peek around that evening to see if I can sneak a peek! It's all going to be perfect and if it isn't, we are still in Mexico, so that is awesome on its own! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hey ladies! So we are down to just over a month until our wedding! It came so fast! Does anyone know if there is lighting in las Olas? We purchased 30 Chinese lanterns that they are going to hang for us so we can put the lights in there and hope that is enough, or get some string lights also. I was hoping to have the Chinese lanterns hung more randomly than following the pattern of lights, but I also want my guests to be able to see their dinner! We are not doing a DJ, so we won't have the extra lighting from that. Thank you so much! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hello! We are working with funjet for our wedding and travel accommodations and they just recommended Maroma Adventures for excursions. Full disclosure- I have not had a chance to look at the website yet! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I just ordered 2 dz white ones from favor warehouse for $32 with shipping. I'm not sure they had your color, but it's an option! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Sent! Hopefully it gets to you! Oh my gosh, so you are the 17th then? We arrive on that day! Are you getting so excited? I cannot believe it is only 2 months away! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I do! I can email it to you if you would like? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Thank you! We actually decided not to do the gold, we are doing the excellence love one (the middle one), then we took the extra money and am doing a welcome cocktail reception. I will totally take a look though!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Yes, I definitely do not have it. If you can attach it, that would be great. Or, you can email me if that is easier? Felicejohnsonwedding@@gmail.com Thank you so much! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. So I know with the wedding package we get w "natural floral centerpiece", does anyone know what that consisted of? Like what size is it? Just trying to plan our table Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
