      You could always ask, maybe they will charge you a little more to have the bar open for an extra hour, but if your willing to pay, I wouldn't see the problem.
      How many holder's are you looking for?!
      I got them at weddingstar.com 3 for $8.
      lol. I wish I could sleep late, but having 2 dogs I never have that luck! lol

      I will definitely check into it. DJ Mannia said he's done 4 hours at GP before, so I'm hoping he knows best.

      How many guests did you have sit at each table? We have about 60 people total including 8 kids. That's one part that makes table planning a little difficult. I would love to at least add them to the cake table. So maybe 6?
      Thanks much!!

        Soo how are you sleep?!?!?! I could hardly sleep a little less then a month away!!

        Sheila I promise my review will be up soon lol (i'm so horrible!!!!!!!!!)

        But......... As promised with much delay (sorry about that) I put together some pics to give you a sort of idea how the beach party looks. pls minus us (I looked like crap by then, sweated off my make-up, danced my hair back down)

        The Enterance (behind that is La Uva Restaurant)

        behind us, the yellow gazebo, is where the DJ is

        the chairs and tables are on the left hand side (the camera is hinding it) also where the bar is

        sorry this is the only pic i found of the bar lol!! it's a hut kinda thing.

        As you can see behind us there is more chairs.
        I have pics of just the tables I still have to scan those tho!

        Hope this helps a bit, sorta of get an idea. As you can see in the sand or on us there is a spot light (which is high on a tree)
        Hi Tracy!

        I'm wondering what sort of music you had played at your beach party? Did you supply CDs or an iPod you brought with you? Or did the resort DJ have his own music he played?

        Thanks!

          Oh yes, dogs... yup no sleep! lol poor you. I wanted a dog.. but not anymore LOL!!!!

          there you go,so for sure you'll be able to get 4 hours for the beach party. Hope it doesn't cost to much extra though... you'll have to keep us posted on that, pls!!

          I had 25 guest plus us 27. I wanted 3 guest tables and a head table for the party us and parents. However like i mention in my review (still not up yet!!) that Carolina only got my bags and direction 30 mins before the ceremony (and I forgot to mention at our meeting about how I wanted the tables) so instead we got 1 long table.I'll look for some pics and I'll post them!

          I'm sure you can do whatever you want for the tables and how many you want at them. JUST LET HER KNOW AT YOUR MEETING, don't pull a Tracy

          I played 50,60,70,80's and 90-until Now. It was amazing everyone had a great time (one of my guest's daughter is getting married..she wanted my entire play list lol)
          I brought both, cd's and an Ipod. He played the cd's. So i suggest mixing it the songs and put it on some cd's...I had 3 cd's. he actually started playing the first cd over again, I got someone to tell him there was more. He was all good after that!

            i'll second that you have to be very specific about the tables - she did do our tables as we wanted, but i had these frames and our table, which was the head, didn't have enough place settings as we planned to have people, and when we had the entrance with the DJ it was awkward, because we as the bride and groom didn't have somewhere to sit!

            my bouquet was a real touch bouquet from shavon's wedding silks. i'm going to use it as a table decoration for our AHR and then try to re sell on here - I got them for all of my bridesmaids and it was much cheaper than buying additional bouquets from carolina.

                our AHR will be sept 18 - i wanted a long break between the wedding, and we have a pool and wanted to enjoy the beach this summer!
                here are a few pics of the reception-

                we were at arrecife, you can somewhat see the dance area to the right of my dad, who was giving a toast

                  Beachbum. You said you did the private dinner reception and the beach reception? How many guests did you have? Arrecife looks nice too, I was thinking La Uva...??

                    We wanted, and had requested La Uva too. She told us arrecife because another bride was in La Uva. We had 41 guests.
