Thanks for the details and pictures- they are gorgeous!  Do you happen to remember what the Desires Terrace looked like?  We are looking to have our cocktail hour there and I am wondering if there is any decor already?

Desires had all kinds of cushions around the wall and its a deck area that over looks he explorer kids club. Very Nice!  But make sure you spend the money to have lighting out there, there is no lighting at all. I wouldn't worry about much decor, maybe a little in the center, because it is a big circle. Its just a really neat area. Just really needs some lighting out there.   I think that would be a great spot for a cocktail! I will post some more photos, it makes it a lot easier to plan and visualize

I only bought 40 Parasols. None of the guys would use them and my family said they didn't need one. It was more for fun and decor. I did have 130 of the fans though!

I left the basket that I put the parasols there so you guys can use it if you want! I only paid $18 bucks for it at the wicker store! I also left 17 of the beautiful handmade Table Runners there as well as the two trays that were used for the Starfish (that was for our place cards) and I also left a bunch of the bamboo fans if anybody wants them.

For those of you who were worried about the STARFISH, I had no issues with the Starfish at all!!! And I brought 225 of them with me! 65 that were like 4-5 inches and 160 that were 3-4 inches! And I also shipped stuff with no problems, I marked it all as "GIFTS".

The one thing I did do was send all the welcome bags to everyone house about three weeks before we were leave. Some I mailed and some we just put on peoples doors. It was a hug hit! I got the bags from HomeGoods, they were the decorative ones that is always at the checkout area, They were soooooo Nice. I got two for $1.50, couldnâ€t beat it! In it I had 2- 4 towels (depending on how many people were going from each family) and a Hangover Helper & Survival Package. We got Brown and Purple Party Bags from Party City and put labels on the outside of the Bag. Here are the labels that we used (got the idea from someone one on here) and the here is the bag we bought for the Hangover Help / Survival package (just the purple one) I bought them at the store.

Another thing, the two sayings we used for the bamboo fans. What we did was bought white scalloped cards, citrus colored oval labels (which we printed the sayings below on...in brown) as well as an Indian lotus stamp with a purple ink pad....we bought all these items from Paper Source. We put the labels on the card and then stamped them with the Indian lotus in a purple color and tied them to all the fans which we had on the chairs! It turned out awesome! It looked Like we Paid $5 for each one, thatâ€s how great they turned out! And it was so reasonable.... took some time to make them all but my girlfriends and I did them all on a Friday night over a couple bottles of wine, it was perfect!

Here is the other one.....attached. What we had was a pocket fold envelope with sticker of our monogram on the outside. Our guests opened it up and it had a welcome message in the center then we had the little cards in the pockets. The whole thing was a DIY and it looked awesome!!!  I will look for the welcome note, so if anyone wants to use it they can and they can just change it around

Here is the link to a sample on the website: we didn't have the extras like the website does
