I think there is plenty of light. We saw a wedding the night before ours and they had at least 5 poles of hanging lanterns with at least 4 lanterns on each pole and their dance floor had the techno lights. I thought it was too bright as it was a full moon when we were there and there is lighting from the resort that reflects down on the beach.
Fatima told us that we didn't need any extra lighting and for some reason our dance floor didn't have any lights. I don't know why we didn't get any. The only reason I could think of is if there is any chance of rain, they don't risk putting lights and electricity out there. She didn't tell me this though and our dance floor looked like a little stage with nothing. I was the only one that noticed though and once it got dark, we got lucky because there was a fireworks show from another party. It was amazing. I agree that white lights would look better than the colored lighting on the floor. I think it looked a little cheesy. I think maybe 2 lanterns would be nice. More of an intimate setting. Also remember the sun doesn't set until at least 845-9 depending on when your wedding is.
I didn't see the lounge chairs so I can't comment on that.
One more strange thing..we had an ipod and there was a "dj" that was there to work the ipod. I didn't pay for that but he let me play what I wanted but at some point he did play celebration. That's funny because I hate that song and why he played that I have no idea...

Our reception is 4 hours long (we're paying for the extra hour) as we wanted to have it as long as possible. We are just getting 2 sets of lounge furniture, each set seats 7 people (3 mini couches, one chair and a table), each set costs $165, plus we are getting some coloured pillows to go with it ($4-7 each). I am hoping this is not a waste of money for the lounge sets on the beach - any other girls out there use them? If you could do it over would you have cut them?
Also- what's the lighting like on the beach- we are getting 4 hanging lights like the one's below. Plus our DJ has lighting. Do you think this will be enough light?
