Does anyone know anything about using the LED lights and should I get 12 inches or 14 inches? Natalia told me 15 paper lanterns would be enough for the pool reception but it seems like most brides have brought 20-30. Any thoughts?
    I think the number of lanterns you need depends on your preference. I wanted a lot of them. We had our reception by the adult pool, and we used 30 lanterns of varying sizes and colors. We got most of them from Paper Lantern Store and some from Hobby Lobby (b/c PLS was out of turquoise at the time). We used:
    6 12" green
    6 16" green
    8 12" white
    3 16" white
    6 16" turquoise

    We lit them with LEDs, and it was actually easier than I thought it would be. In my planning thread (which you can get to from my signature), I have links to the websites that gave instructions on how to use them. You can also see pics of our lantern setup in my planning thread and my review.

      Thanks!
      Hey JoAnn -
      I would say there is definitely more room at the relax pool for a dance floor than the dolphin pool. However, I would say that you don't really need one for the relax pool . The ground is cement/stone, and has kind of a design that divides it into squares. So, if you use the corner "square" it can look sectioned off enough for a dance floor (in my opinion). You can sort of see this in our photos (particularly one that is in my Review). Our tables were along the width and length of the pool, and the corner - in between the two areas of guest tables - was left open as the dance floor.

        Does anyone know how long in advance you have to arrive for a symbolic ceremony? Is it 3 days? Business days? I tried to search the answer, I know it has to be in this thread but I couldn't find it. I want to purchase the vacation package tonight or tomorrow. Thanks!

          There are no minimum required days for symbolic ceremonies since it is not a legal ceremony. You should probably get there a few days in advance though to meet with the WC to go over what you want and pay, etc.

                  That is plenty of time for the symbolic wedding.

                    I had to "negotiate" our arrival date with the wedding cordinator for our symbolic ceremony. She kept telling us we had to be there 3 days in advance.... because May 5 is a holiday, she wanted us there on Monday for a Friday wedding. We came to agree upon Tuesday for an arrival date. We actually emailed back and forth on this for almost 2 weeks. I still can't figure out why....

                      I've been thinking about seating arrangements for the reception. I only have about 28 guests so far. Should we do table numbers, etc? Natalia says we can set up a small table to the bride and groom and the 4 round tables.
