      Anny I was thinking of doing this too but I didn't think the resort would let me do it. I'll check online for a good price. I'll post in a few minutes...

          Anny, what about having the candles outside around the pool? I only suggest this b/c my brother has a pool and we've tried floating candles on several occasions and they always tend to float and gather at the corner of the pool.

            I was thinking of that if I don't find cheap candles.. If I do I was thinking on tiying something to them with a counter weight so they won't move too much..

                we did this for the rehearsal dinner. they all floated into the filter and burnt up the plastic that covered it! they are hard to control. and the pool by the reception was too big so we put the candles around the pool. big lots has really cheap candles in glass votives.

                  Ouch! Anny all the ones I find are really expensive. I saw these
                  Luminaria Floating Candles and they were $120 for 6! I can't believe they are so expensive. But it seems like if you do cheap regular ones, they will float to the center or worse burn! Hmm maybe you should do the candles around the pool. In the meantime I will keep looking for you.
