I had the same thing happen to me! I was planning my reception at the dolphin pool, but turns out another bride had chosen it before me. I'm having my reception at the relax pool now too. I'm not too worried about the lighting situation. I hear there is a big spot light, and I'm planning on bringing paper lanterns and luminaries with me to help light it up a bit. You could also get the under table lighting which would be really nice. I figure you would have the same lighting issues at the relax pool as you would for a beach reception.
starlitK was a DT bride who had her reception at the relax pool and it looked great. http://www.bestdesti...planning-thread
I'm planning on doing 2 long rectangle tables for my reception, instead of a bunch of round tables. I think the relax pool will look really nice with long tables because of the long pool deck!

Also, I'm getting married on a tuesday and someone told me that they have a festival on tuesdays that is close to the relaxation pool. I'm pretty concerned, does anyone have any advice?
