Thank you for the breakdown on costs. It has all been confusing and I didn't want to go down there with no clue what to expect. I was just going to do the lanterns for extra lighting, but knowing that they have spotlights, I think I will save the money and spend it on the table set-up. Thanks again!

Here is a picture of my beach set up its blurry as it was taking from our room deck but at least in the pic u can see the spot lights and see if its enough lighting for u
Cool! Thank you so much for posting this pic! I think it will be enough lighting especially with candles on the table. You have provided so much great information - thank you, thank you, thank you!

I know that my DJ brought his own lighting without me even saying anything. I'm sure you can email yours to ask. He's going to need to plug his equipement in somewhere I would guess. so maybe if he doesn't have lights, you could bring a string of lights for his table?? In the week I was at the resort, there were 9 weddings (including mine). I think I saw 3 beach receptions and they were beautiful and pretty well lit.
As for candles, I had my reception at the Seaside Grill and I would have loved to bring real candles but was told by the wedding coordinator to bring battery operated ones because of the wind near the ocean. I followed her suggestion but I think I may have been able to get away with real ones. Anyway, my point is that I would definitely recommend the battery operated ones for a beach-side or even poolside reception because those locations are less sheltered.

Don't really think they are necessary because there is no real dinner option... But FI thinks they would be nice and would bring our accent color to the table more.
Initially I was just going to put 1 large double-sided menu card in the middle of my 6 guest tables just so the guests had an idea of what kind of food to expect. My husband (also) actually wanted inidividual ones to bring the accent colour out more on the tables since we had all white linens and plates. I didn't have napkin holders or anything with a punch of colour so that's what we did. Plus we had the luggage tag favours at each setting with each guest's name on it. Anyway, it's totally up to you. It'll look pretty either way. If you decide to have menus, I think I still have my menu template and would be happy to attach it or email it to you.
