      StarlitK Congratulations. Thanks so much for posting, your pictures are stunning I love them all. So much love and energy. You must be thrilled with them and the memories of your wonderful day.

      Just wondering if I could get your input... We are getting married on the same night the firedancers are performing. What time approx do they start? For how long do they perform? Do you think it would be possible to move our wedding celebration after our meal to watch the fire dance performance. There will only be 13 of us in total, we have planned a private meal on the beach and then just dancing in the sand to our ipod.

      Would love to hear everyones opinions of how or if you think this would work in terms of timing, logistics and ambience. Both as a bride and if you were the guest.

      Many thanks
      Michelle X

        Hey Michelle, the firedancers started around 9 PM and were GREAT! I think they performed for about 45 minutes. Definitely worth seeing. By the time they started, there were more seats available since the families with younger children had left, so I don't think it would be difficult for your group of 13 to find place to sit and watch.
        Hope this helps!

            Thanks! I totally am thrilled with the pics!

            As for the fire dancers, I agree with Chanti - I think that you could move the celebration over to watch them and there would be seats. There were also a lot of people standing around to watch them too, which could work if worse came to worse.

            The fire dancers performed at the Caribbean party on Friday while we were there, but I'm not totally sure if that is always the case. We had originally requested to have the fire dancers at our wedding. Then, in the month or so before the wedding, the WC told us that they were scheduled to perform at the resort on our night, and that if we wanted them to, they would have performed their regularly scheduled show at the other end of the relax pool so that our party could see them (but we would not have to pay, as they would already be performing for the other resort guests, who would have also been by the relax pool, then). In the end, I told her that we didn't want to (b/c she had said it was an hour long show, and I was afraid it would have taken up our entire reception b/c we were getting a late start). Then, when we got to the resort, she said they moved the show to Friday since we didn't want them.

            I'm not sure if this was only an option b/c we were a larger party, but it is something to keep in mind and talk to the WC about.

              Chanti and Starlitk, thanks so much for your input. If its usually 9pm the timing fits cos our reception starts at 6pm. Good idea about locating our reception so we can see the performance anyway without actually moving.

              Still cant decide how the guests would find this, either having to move location or our reception location being over-run with people coming to see the show.
              Any opinions on this welcome.

              Another major headache Im having is set up fee's for a private reception. The new wedding guide now states $750 set up fee inside or out. I knew this always applied to the seaside grill but are they really going to charge me $750 to set up a table for 13 on the beach or by the pool.

              Please help me out with your recent costs, experiences or W.C feedback on this cos at the minute it looks like we are going to lose our photographer...
