    I've seen people put out paint brushes with ribbon around them to brush off the sand.  A few towels might work better.  I'm curious about this too.  I hadn't really thought of it yet, since we just switched to the beach.

        okay one last final stress.... I called the airline (Jet Blue) and they say no closets and I cannot hang it.  It needs to go in the overhead bin.  They recommended we get a shirt box for the dress.  I just don't know.  put it in a carryon or box?  What are you ladies doing????

          On page 137 of this thread Cri posted pictures of her beach ceremony setup.  AnnieWeds posted the link to her wedding pics (beach ceremony) on the same page.

           

          If you're doing maracas at the ceremony I think most people have one placed on each chair.  If you're putting them out at the reception they're typically set out at each place setting. It adds a nice pop of color each way.  We're doing maracas too and we're giving them out at the reception, one at each place setting.

            There are foot showers for the guests to rinse their feet. The sand should not be an issue unless people are wearing socks or something.

            Nicc-the resort will set up the maracas for you. They will be tucked neatly into the chair in front or the person. For the last row, they will be in the chair. The resort will make your wedding look wonderful and will be very well put together. You don't have to worry about the small details like the maracas. Just take them down there and Cecilia will ask you what you have brought. She will take care of everything.

              I would get a white dress bag. Once the overhead bin is full, neatly lay it across the top of the bags.

                Thanks for answering the question about the sand!  I hadn't thought about some of these things when we were having the ceremony at the Gazebo!

The hotel set it up for us. I wanted my bridal party with me, and did not feel comfortable asking them to set up our stuff for us. We had 20 guests, and 3 tables set up, plus 35ish sashes total. The cost was minimal and well worth it. If you bring your own sashes, be sure to bring enough for the ceremony and the reception. They won't have time to rush to move them and I would imagine you are more likely to get a deal on the cost if you make it easier on them.

                   

                  I have heard conflicting advice on the chair sashes, and been stressing over it. I am expecting between 50 and 75 guests, and am bringing my own sashes, table overlays, etc. However, I was fairly confident that  we only needed one set of chair sashes because I was told they move the ceremony chairs to the recetpion area (I have an hour and a half window between ceremony and reception for photos and cocktail hour).  CAN ANYONE ELSE PLEASE INPUT THIS! My local wedding decorator and I finallly came up with my perfect vision and if I have to bring double the amount to accomodate both ceremony and reception now is making my head SPIN!!!! LOL, please former brides please communicate your experiences! Thanks!

                    Where is your ceremony being held, and where is your reception being held? If it's the same place, then they will use the same chairs. Mine was from the beach to barracuda terrace and the chairs were not moved from location to location. I had 1.5 hours between as well, and they still did not move the chairs.
