    Thanks, Melissa! It does look nice with just a little table. Perhaps I will jsut need the sand ceremony table and no arches....

    One thing you might think about doing is delineating the space with tiki torches, if your resort offers them? Maybe?

    Also, I'm pretty sure someone on here (Jenetta) made a chuppah out of PVC piping. Ahah! Just found the link: http://bestdestinati...com/forum/t1323 Might be worth it to check with her...

      My friend suggest I don't use the arches. She was going to have to pay $800 for arches & decided not to. She was really glad she didn't get them. I think her pictures look great.

      I won't have arches either. I love the look of the beach/ lagoon where the ceremony will take place. I don't want to cover any of that up. There will be a white canopy for guests to sit under.

      I have this picture. I'll look for some better ones.

          I think that when people remove a photo from wherever it's hosted (Photobucket, flickr, wherever), the photo disappears from this site. Might be worth it to PM Jenetta (JPMO) to see if she has any photos she can send you. =)

                I didn't have arches and I thought it looked beautiful. The water was the only backdrop I needed. Here are some pictures of the ceremony site.

                  I found this one. They had color through chair ties and added a little bit of greenary.

                  Instead of an arch maybe something cute along the aisle?

                  Crappy pic- but they used floral arrangements next to the table.

                  Another one using a floral arrangement.

                  Maybe these will help you brain storm another idea. I think it can still be beautiful without the arch!

                    Thank you ladies so much! I am feeling like I can ditch the arches if need be. I still don't WANT to, cuz I love that picture above. But if it comes down to it, you all have supplied me with lots of beautiful options. here is another that I found. Click the image to open in full size.
