    I did hear that it's a bit windy- on page 338 of the forum, jmb0902 has a picture where she had to put a plate over her hurricane glass because the wind kept blowing out the candle.

    So I'm still thinking of ideas for lighting... this website has pretty cheap LED lights, I may need to buy them and figure something out- Cheap LED Party 'Floralytes' $1.34 Wholesale LED Submersible Lights

    I can picture the day I get married there is no wind... and I purchased these things for nothing lol. I guess better safe than sorry right?
    AchiCAp0547 - the relaxed pool is quite exposed since there is nothing really surrounding it only a few trees. The children/activity/dolphin pool is a little more protected since there is a wall of columns surrounding it.

      When you went for your site visit, could you possibly tell me some information on what the "relaxed pool" looks like? I've read some things on this site, but still do not have a good feel for what/where that pool is. Our reception is going to be at the relaxed pool, so I want to make sure there is going to be enough lighting for a 6p-9p reception. And is it terribly far from the Bar? At our receptions, how do we get our drinks? Are there waiters that go to the bar for us?
      Hey Achica -
      I haven't been on in awhile. I just read your question on relax pool receptions. I did have my reception (for 42 people) there. You can see pics in my review and planning thread. It IS dark, but we made it work. I believe we had tiki torches, luminaries in paper bags on the ground, candles and light-up table numbers on the tables, and paper lanterns. Also, the resort had the fog lights on. I still would have liked to have more (and softer) lighting (the fog lights are a bit harsh). Looking back, I wish I would have asked them to string white christmas lights on the cords they hung our lanterns. Not sure if they have them, but it might be worth checking into. With that extra lighting, I think it would have been fine. Let me know if you have other questions about it!

      The relax pool is fairly close to the Sugar Reef bar. But, we definitely had our own waiters to bring our guests drinks.

        2) what kind/brand of products do the make-up artists use? I'm still on the fence about having my face done in the salon vs. doing my own makeup.

        3) does anyone know if the makeup artists will do a false eylash application?

        thanks all :)

        The aisle sand is soft. At our wedding (late June) it was warm, but not too hot. My wedding was a cloudy day, though, so another bride should confirm that it'll be ok.

        Not sure on the makeup product brand - I didn't look too closely. But, it did look like a professional line.

            Hi

            Just to let you know, members can get banned for requesting points donations and for donating points! You have to participate to get points to be able to download the documents. So start chatting on the forums, there are a ton of threads with really useful topics. Tell people about your plans and ideas, share your photos of stuff you've made / bought, etc. The points will start adding up.

            Also, I don't think you've posted your wedding date, if you let me know I'll add you to the list. You can also add it to your profile (on the left) by accessing the user control panel menu under Quick Links at the top right of the screen.

              Hi Starlitk, thanks so much for the info. I looked through your wedding pages NUMEROUS times lol!! (btw, it was gorgeous and I would love love love for my wedding to look like yours! So I am stealing SOME ideas ;-) but not all!) I will bring down some white Christmas lights... I should have bought them when they went on sale in December, errr, I hope I can find them now.
              xoxo

                  All the rooms have AC (I was concerned about this too!)

                  I was just reading on Orbitz for you and I see that all the rooms that have the word "preferred" say "comtemporary decoration" and all the others that don't have preferred say "hacienda" so I think you should go by that, i.e. sounds like the "preferred" are the new rooms (Dreams) and that the other ones are the old rooms.

                  Keep in mind that with the old rooms, there are all the categories (garden view, ocean view, and honeymoon suite. If you look at the map you can see that some of them are near the beach near the 2nd wedding gazebo) and with the new rooms too.
                  Thanks sunbride!

                      We brought our own (put them in 4X6 picture frames). I'm not sure if they have table numbers or not.
