@@victoriasalv - We met with Jessica the day we arrived (Wednesday) because we had plans Thursday during the day and our welcome dinner was Thursday night. Everything she had on file was right in line with everything we had discussed, but I also checked in and communicated with her frequently. Either way, she is on top of everything. We confirmed both menus and apps for cocktail hour in November and not a single thing changed. We printed out menus for the welcome dinner and reception. I had been nervous that she might come back and say that something wasn't available or had to change, but we had zero issues.

Thank you!!  Congrats to you and enjoy every second, it FLYS by!

@@Sabes44 Congratulations! My goodness you made one BEAUTIFUL bride. I absolutely adore your dress. You both look so happy! Can't wait to hear all the little details.

Ok wait now the questions are flooding in my brain @@Sabes44

 

What was the routine when you got there, do you meet with Jessica right away? Did she already have most of what you were looking for on file or is that when you gave her your final ideas on menu's etc. We're still so far out I didn't know how long they waited to lock in like the apps/food etc.

Thank you!  We met with Jessica the next day, we got in late Wednesday afternoon so we met with her on Thursday morning to go over all the details one more time and to give her the decor.  We had already decided everything and had everything confirmed, it was just going over it all in person and asking a few day of questions and minor details that we hadn't discussed prior.  You can do a lot over email, but some stuff was easier in person.  She had it all together, it was just the confirmation of everything we had discussed.  At the end it all turned out even better than I had expected!

@@Sabes44 You look absolutely amazing!! Thanks for the info on the X Lounge. I keep hearing mixed reviews about whether it is a good space. Was it conveniently located by the beach and Las Olas?

Thank you @JamieCKL!  They are all very conveniently located.  Las Olas is in the middle of the beach and X-Lounge, but all within a 2-3 min leisurely walk.  It really just depends on what you want.  Once I was told Las Olas was available I went for a very simple and "authentic" beachy wedding.  I already knew I didn't want much decor and fuss and wanted to use the scenery as the decor.  So for us those spots were perfect, you could do a lot more if you wanted, but just depends on your vision and what you want from your wedding!

@@Sabes44 I sent you a request on Shutterfly so I can view the photos. For us, we are trying to cut costs wherever possible with the wedding because we are doing a reception when we get home for all of the non-attending friends and family that is costing a ton too. Anyplace that I can feel comfortable hosting without the cost of added decor expense, I am interested in, so Las Olas seemed perfect. 

 

When you get a chance would you mind answering a few other questions?

 

I thought I read you did not have a dj. Did you use rent the sound system? 

 

Did you have a private welcome dinner? If not, where did you have it?

 

Sorry for all of the questions!

I accepted the request, so you should have access now.  I am happy to answer your questions, that was this site is for!

 

We used their sound system for the ceremony, but used our own speaker for the reception.  Since there's was $400 to rent and not worth it to me!

 

We did a family dinner at Agave (there are two restaurants that Jessica can make reservations for with a set menu) and then had an informal "welcome reception" at the Martini bar.  It was very casual, just gave everyone a chance to meet and we handed out the welcome bags.  Most people came in that day so just stopped by for a drink or two and then went on to dinner.  I didn't want to force the guests to do stuff with us everyday (but that was just my choice).

@@JenniferH114 - Thank you and congrats to you too!!! Juan was so so amazing! He remembered pictures I told him I wanted almost a year ago and I forgot about!  He was super on top of it and from what I have seen so far, the pictures will be amazing!  We also did the Cenote shoot and he was so great and had 3 other guys helping him, I was really impressed and he was totally worth the little bit extra he costed over the in house photographer.
