    Thanks! I'm still deciding if i want my lanterns to be on a string together or separate - not sure where they'll be able to hang them all
    I've heard that 1 LED isn't enough to light up a 14" lantern so thats a dilemma too.
    Thanks for the info

    We are having lots of guests...15 tables, so we need enough decor for the space.

      POOLSIDE COCKTAIL (2).JPGSo again I was sent another bad picture! It looks like the floating LEDs would be a good in the pool. I just can't tell where the lanterns would go. I was asking her about centerpiece glass (so I wouldn't have to travel with that stuff) to buy from the flower shop they are $20 a vase!!!

        The lanterns that I bought come folded in the package...each one is flat and packaged in plastic.

        I have been to the resort twice- so I know what the space/area looks like... I don't have pictures for you...

        It is a large pool- so the area on one side of it has palapas around (lounge chairs are placed under them during the day); there is the White Sands Bar, the ground is concrete....there are bathrooms beyond the bar. The sand, and beach is beyond (behind the pool)/separated by trees/shrubs.

                  Hello - I am getting married January 18th at the Gran Bahia Principe but have noticed most pictures and comments are for Tulum, I am getting married at Akumal.  Does anyone have any pictures of their reception?  I was given the choice of either Dolce Vita or Frutos del Mar but there are no pictures available, has anyone had experience with either restaurant?  I tried to get the Brazillian restaurant in Tulum but it is fully booked...Also, once your dinner has wrapped up, where is the best spot to move the party?  Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!  Muchos Gracias!  (sorry if I posted this message in the wrong spot - brand new to this site and stressed so trying to post anywhere!) haha
