    @SusanMarie13 such a sweet pic! FYI I have a friend getting married in July at the Azul Sensatori. He's been before and loved it! We both work in high end dining and he loved the food, so if you have any foodies rest assured they will be happy and its set up as a family resort. You should check the board

      @hapykat 

      We were looking at Azul Sensatori or Azul Beach/ Dreams Tulum but honestly all the nickel and dime prices for everything is just freaking me out.  Looking for budget planner sheets I have Dreams so I can compare all of them with Finest.  I think Finest is more in our budget range...

       

      Thanks its our family christmas photo :)

      @Sabes44 and @hapykat
       
      I did have assigned seating for my long table.  I was required to b/c I had two entree choices.  
       
      My entrees were:
       
      #1 Grilled Pork Loin with fine herb encrusted sea bass with pasilla sauce, roasted garlic herb potatoes and fresh vegetables
       
      #2 Pecan crusted mahi mahi fillet combined with a spinach, mushroom, ricotta cheese and seafood stuffed chicken breast, served with a lobster sauce, grilled vegetables and roasted garlic mashed potatoes
       
      I made Jessica a seating chart that outlined who was sitting where and the meal they chose.  As you can see from the choices the meals are more like a feast so I think we would have been ok with only 1 entree choice.  I think it would have helped the food come out a little smoother from the kitchen if we only had one entree.  The kitchen in the Lobster House is very small.  
       
      The great think about a seating chart though is that I go to have fun escort cards!  I had a shot of tequila at each seat with a lime on top.  There was a flag sticking out of each lime with the guests name.  It was a fun was to kick off the reception!

       

      The food was very good.  I would recommend the ceasar salad and the avocado soup.  They were both soo good!  And the Tres Leches cake was amazing!

       

      The extra decor in the Gold Package allows you to have both rose petals down and the star fish down the also aisle.  It includes an extra centerpiece.  I opted to not have a centerpiece at the ceremony (it really is not needed if on the beach) so that Jessica could do the centerpieces I wanted at reception for no extra cost.

      @HNeal Tequila in the shot glasses awesome! Did you provide her with any photos since your centrepieces were small? Also did you happen to have candles? If so did the wind blow them out?

      Honestly one reason I thought about doing a seating chart, was just to be able to have those cute tequila shot place holders!

      I loved the shot glasses and so did the guests!  Here are a couple pics of them...

       

      Reception Table
       
      Shot glasses
       
      I did provide Jessica with photos of what I liked but with the centerpieces it was difficult b/c I could not find a pic of exactly what I wanted.  I did a lot of detailed explaining of what I wanted and Jessica made it happen.  I provided the candles b/c I wanted a lot of them all over the table.  The wind did not blow them out but the fan did.  Not all of them just few.  Jessica provided mason jars for the flowers and the shot glasses.  In addition to the candles I brought a table runner and the name tags for the table.

      So cute!  I might have to steal that idea.  Still trying to figure out my centerpieces and decor, but luckily I have a little down time over the holidays so I will have time to spend on it.

      cheers to 2015! Has anyone ever done a rehearsal dinner on the beach? I'd like to do something a little special for the bridal party - something that feels different than what we are doing at the reception. Ideas?

       

      Anyone thinking about doing or execute a photo booth?? I'd like to bring the supplies to have one but not sure where the backdrop would go, if we have the reception at the Lobster House. @HNeal - would you recommend doing one based on your experience?
