I am not worried about how it looks just want to make sure they have somewhere to sit while waiting for entry into the Palapa.
My guests were from 3 to 80 years of age and we were so glad we rented the white furniture and tables for them. The cabochon chairs that were sitting on the beach for the ceremony were moved into the palapa space shortly after we left the group to take photos. It would have been a long three+ hours for our guests had that white furniture not been there - plus it was a great area to dance and listen to the mariachi trio while staff were doing last minute prep up in the palapa. We rented two sets for our 32 guests and my Dad said he "wished they would have put more of the white furniture out"...but he didn't realize how much we had paid just for the two sets!
Did anyone rent an extra golf cart? We are considering it but weren't sure if it was necessary. We have approx 32 guests. Any info on this would be great!
We didn't...but then I'm not sure if perhaps one was included with our Presidential package...we were swept away in the cart after the ceremony for pics and the cart and driver stayed with us the whole time to drive us and the photographers around. The guests all stayed on the beach and visited while we were off getting pictures. We had no issues with rides before the ceremony for our guests or at the end of the night.
I am looking at the bride's bouquet and bridesmaids bouquets.. does anyone have an info or pictures on these? I was thinking of getting the small size for the girls and the medium sized for myself. The brochure that i was sent only has photos of the medium and large sizes.
I just took a couple of photos of bouquets I really loved and they sent them on to the florist to price out when we arrived. I paid extra for mine because of the orchids in it...the shape was what I had requested, but flower-wise it looked quite different with the chartreuse colour added to it. But I loved it nevertheless!
Also, we really want to have paper lanterns hanging in the Palapa. Has anyone rented the ones the have at the resort? If so does the cost of renting them include the set up fee?
Sorry, can't help with this...
