@fargetswed- unfortunately I don't know the distance between the gazebo and the trees...but it's not that close. So I am not even sure that it would be an option.

As for the length of lights required to wrap the poles. A 25ft light cord should be plenty (and for the bride who bought 18ft)...it will just perhaps mean the lights are wrapped a few times less around the pole. But it would still work.

Not the best photos to see...but the trees are really not that close to the gazebo.

Yes. I used the LED throwies. This forum has the instructions: http://www.bestdesti...paper-lanterns/

    @murmel @LaurenR @farsgetswed

     

    are you girls referring to something like this? I would love to have my wedding decorated that way but someone told me that the blue lights wrapped on the trees and the DJ lighting would be enough.

    I think I will use 8 and 12 for the size of the paper lanterns for a total of 30 (including inside)...what sizes are you using and how many?

     

     

    Also I read somewhere the following:

     

    "I have a question about some decorating ideas. We have had to change where we are having our private dinner reception b/c we have more people coming thatn we initially thought. So we have moved it to Plaza Zavas...which I think is absolutely gorgeous in pics! So I wanted to get some feedback on decoration ideas for this space. We are bringing our own centrepieces down but need everything else.

     

    - paper lanterns: I love how these look in photos. I am assuming past brides have brought them down with them? Approx how many do you think you would need to fill the space nicely? And I notice some light up, are these the LED throwies I have been reading about? Any good websites you can reccommend for cheap, decent quality lanterns?
    Paper lanterns really do make that space sparkle. We used about 20-25 lanterns in varying sizes. I ordered mine from asianideas.com (mostly due to the fact that they would ship to Canada) This will do the edge of the gazebo. I know a few girls also wanted lanterns hanging inside the gazebo-if you choose to do that I would suggest planning for about 35 lanterns. We made the LED throwies to put inside the lanterns to light them up. The lights that you might be referring to are actually part of the resort on the palm trees, as well there is some neat lighting by the adult bar which is sort of in the background."

    hello brides!

     

    I didn't plan a cocktail hour after my ceremony since I didn't think it made sense to pay for another private event when guests can just walk over to any of the bars and drink for free while my Fiance and I get our photos taken. Has anyone done this or planned on doing this?

     

    Thanks!

    Raquel

    I think many do this. It may be a nice touch to choose a specific bar (zocalo terrace bar for example) and say in your program "informal cocktails at Zocolo terrace immediately following ceremony... This allows those that want to freshen up to sneak away, but provides a destination for others who want to mingle and have a bevy before the reception.

    Thank you. That's a great idea!

    Is Zocalo closer than Mojito? Do you think one would be better than the other?

      @raqpena my package included the free cocktail ceremony  but I was/am planning to use it another day and have the staff announcing the reception location and hour...also printed in the program fans
