    Tulle Garland - to determine the amount of material needed for the garland; measure the item that you are going to decorate (in this case - the gazebo) Allow extra for draping. Multiply this measurement x 1.5 to determine length of tulle. Example: if the arch frame is 16', take that times 1.5 for a total of 24' or 8 yards.

    The side poles on the gazebo are 3 meters (per Jacy) (which is 9.5'). if you multiply each one times 1.5 - the result is 14.25' (which is 4.75 or approx 5 yds) per pole. If you multiply that by the number of poles (6 side + 2 cross poles front & back); the total is approx. 40 yds. This allows for draping.

              Great photos! My favorite part of the decorations was the tulle twisted in the back of the gazebo. I love how it framed the bride and groom. Also, I noticed a bell in the top of the gazebo. I was at a wedding were the bride and groom and all the guest rang the bell at the end of the ceremony. It was a great way to celebrate. I wonder if we can ring the bell? At least once...

              Carribean trio question: I want steel drums playing Bob Marley songs as I walk down the island. Does Carribean trio mean steel drums? Any ideas?

                Thanks Bianca and Rory S. for getting those pictures for us! It really put my mind at ease after seeing the earlier pictures! I liked the tulle wrapped around the posts and the interesting aisle - like a red carpet? Pretty neat.

                Also, it looks like maybe some one was ringing the bell during the ceramony. I saw a really long cord running from the top of the gazebo to the bottom and in some of the pictures it looks like someone was maybe pulling it. Maybe I am just making that up though!

                  RoryS, I noticed you mentioned a certain centerpiece. Have you seen pictures the centerpieces that the resorts offer? Thanks

                    Thank you guys for getting pics up. I think that I'm going to try to look for some chair sashes and bring some extra tulle if i can fit it in my luggage. I'm not sure what else exactly I'm going to do but I think I'm up next (4/9) and I'll make sure to post my pictures up as well. This certainly looks alot better than what I've previously seen!
