    Hi,

    I need some advice as to what some of you did for furniture and decorations for your coctail hour at Dreams. The reception will be at Oceana Terrace and we were thinking of having cocktails there as well, but I'm at a loss how to decorate for coacktails so that it's different from the dinner tables.

    Thanks!

      We too are at the Oceana terrace and have 3 high top tables for the cocktail hour at the same location. I am just extending the decor from the reception to those three tables. We will have the lanterns and tiki torches as well as luminaries all around the terrace, so I'm sure that will be plenty. I would just extend your decorations to the cocktail tables....keep it similar.

        Thanks for the info. Is Dreams providing the high tables?

          I don't think they'll be able to do cocktail hour and reception there with different decor.. where would your guests go during setup? Reception setup takes quite awhile with centerpieces, cake table, etc...

          As another option we had our cocktail hour right behind the ceremony site. Guests that wanted to hang on the beach were served drinks and appetizers and others chose to go to their rooms for awhile before the reception.

          I spoke to Yesica and she said that they do the set up for the cocktails and the reception before the actual time you're going to be there, so it will all be set up when your guests arrive (for both cocktails and dinner). She said its not a problem to do two different set ups in the same location and they won't charge extra for doing it. That's what we're doing as of now. We have both the dinner and the cocktail reception booked on the Oceana terrace, and we will carry the decorations into the reception so that it all ties in together.

            That makes complete sense.. I just didn't think there would be time to do a complete change. One more thing regarding Oceana Terrace. My wedding was in October and it was very warm in that area. The beach had a nice breeze (although the sun was hot) but being away from the ocean, there wasn't much breeze at Oceana Terrace and was a bit warm.. a few cocktails later and nobody noticed but I saw the fans in action when we first arrived.

              Thanks...I was thinking of having lounge furniture for cocktail hour, but don't really want the added expense...maybe I'll just go with high top tables...do you know what they looks like...does Dreams provide chairs for the high tops?
