1. Since I have never been at the resort before, its hard for me to envision where the dancing would take place. I understand it is on the concrete landing, but is this tied to the SSG deck where the tables are set up for the reception?
Every time I ask tiara to send me pictures of diff. angles of the deck, she always sends me close up of tables on the deck which doesnt help at all.
If you have any pics which show both the SSG deck and the dancing area you used, that would be great. My e-mail address is:
2. My wedding is in September so the sun sets earlier; did you think that there was enough light at night on the deck for the reception? Did you hang any lanterns and if so; how? If you have pics of this; I would totally appreciate it!!!
1. The place that we used as our Dancing Area is outside. It is part of the SSG. It' is "connected" to the SSG Deck in that you can walk from the concrete area, down the stairs, and be standing on the SSG Deck. There is a change in elevation from the landing to the SSG deck. I know it's probably hard for you to imagine, but it really was a great place to have dancing. IF you need your guests to be able to see you at all while they're sitting at their seats on the SSG Deck, i do NOT think they'd be able to see you up at the concrete landing. (We did our 1st dance after dinner.)
Unfortunately, I don't have any pics of the overall view of the deck, but since you aren't getting married until September, I would be more than happy to share the pics from my photographer once I get the rest.
2. By the time we were eating, the sun had set. There was enough light. I will say that I bought a bunch of Pillar candles to be scattered on all the tables. It was too windy at first to light them but half way through dinner the wind died down and the Staff was able to light them. That was nice b/c it gave everything a serene glow. Even without the candles though, there was enough light, although it was a little on the dark side.
Some paper lanterns were hanging from the trees immediately in front of the SSG. They didn't have any lights in them. None of our lanterns had lights in them. The Staff hung them for us. Again, no pics yet. But when we get our photographers' pics back I will def share!
