Does anyone have any pictures of how the table/area is set up for Las Olas reception?  I'm just deciding on what decoration to take but I'm not sure what is already provided.

I would love to know that also!  We just today confirmed Las Olas as the spot for our reception!  Getting really excited!  If only these next 8 months flew by!  Ha!

@vanessajfelice awww you get married 2 1/2 weeks after me.  Congratulations.  I've just goggled some images to give me an idea of the area but as there are only 4 of us it's no major drama but I would like to see how the reception is dressed.

I have a couple of pictures of the tables in my gallery (close-ups), but just know that we brought everything with the exception of the tablecloths and place settings. We brought the burlap runners, maracas, custom coasters, mini sand jars, centerpieces (except we rented the vases themselves from ERC), starfish, etc. We loved how everything turned out!

    I saw the set up of a wedding at Las Olas when I went in November. I think it's your option if you want round tables or long rectangular. I have a couple pictures.Attached File  image.jpeg   107.47KB   3 downloads

    @JenniferH114 thanks for sharing these pics, you looked gorgeous.  Did they put the lights up around the posts for you?

    @lynne1609, that is a great question about the lights!

    @JenniferH114, is there any sort of lights at the top of las olas?  This way we know if we need to bring something!

      Hey! I have been following this thread for the last week. Thank you so much for all of the great tips and info! We are planning our wedding at ERC November 11th. Sadly the 5pm slot was taken and so we are going to be having the ceremony at 3. I'm wondering a few things.

       

      1. Can I book our stay with an outside booking site like hotels.com? I was worried if I do this, they will not consider the reservation number valid to hold my wedding date.

      2. Did you guys choose to have a group contract or are you letting guests book their own stay? I don't feel like the group concessions were worth it considering I am finding the hotel for at least $50 cheaper/night at other sites.

      3. Did any of you brides get rain? Im not sure I would mind it but want to come prepared for the possible last minute changes.

       

      I'm sure I will have more questions to come! I am super excited for the day to come. The resort looks perfect in every way
