Do they offer a vegetarian option?

 

Yes!  They do offer veg option and Jessica said that they can accommodate dietary restrictions if needed.  I am not sure what the veg options are though.  I have two guests who are vegetarian but when I asked them if they wanted me to look into it they both thought that the mahi mahi and chicken entree looked like a feast and they are both going to cheat a little that night!

Jessica just confirmed that we can choose two entrées for the guests to choose from, but the rest of the menu stays the same for everyone (which is fine for us). I have not asked about whether or not I can mix up the entrée options. I don't really care for any of them "as-is." (We are doing the gold package, but I've look at both the gold and silver menus.) I'd like to do steak and shrimp (instead of scallops) and chicken (instead of pork) and fish. The veggies and potatoes are fine, too. I'm hoping she will work with us on that!

 

As it was previously mentioned, she will need a final count of the entrées one month in advance and we will need palce cards so the servers know who is getting what.

Does anyone know how many people can fit comfortably at the X Lounge? I've seen some pics with couches and chairs and wondering if it would work for our welcome party (of about 35 guests)?

 

thank you!

kristin

Is anyone doing their reception at Las Olas??  I didn't realize all the options till Jessica just sent them to me.  Since we don't think we are going to get a DJ (just go to the disco or bar after) this might be the perfect option.  Causal, on the beach, but not totally in the sand and completely unique to the destination!

@Sabes44, we are having our cocktail hour at Las Olas - and, if the Lobster House isn't available, we'll hold the reception there, too. I've heard great things about it - it's perfect for a reception! and the ocean breeze helps so much!

I agree about the breeze @upstatekj!  I wanted to go with the Lobster House, but it might not be available and I am not sure if we will end up with 35 guests.  But I think Las Olas might be a better fit.   Which package are you going with?

Yes!  I have the Lobster House!  I am so excited about that.  I cannot believe I am only a few weeks away.  I am feeling good and like everything is in order.  I asked Jessica to send me a list of all the details and the total cost and she sent back an easy to read chart of every single detail.  It totally reassured me about how organized she has been through this process.

I am having my cocktail hour at Las Olas.  I think the reception would be gorgeous there as well.  I saw pics of a reception at Las Olas and it looked so pretty in the dark with the lights strung up.
