Yep, that's the plan. I don't know if I'll have them all set up for the ceremony since it's at 2:30...instead I might have them hang a few lanterns on the light posts along the path way, and then for the gazebo reception have them put the lanterns in the gazebo and set up the luminaries along the path in the evening (I got battery powered tea lights to put in the luminaries since it might be windy). I'm also going to put the parasols in front of the chairs to add some color during the ceremony and I think I'll just bring some extra chair sashes with me to put up with the white tulle they already decorate the gazebo with. I figure during the day time, the scenery will be good enough for decorations so I don't want to add too much more, but at night I want to add some light and color. I want to have candles for the tables during the dinner too...but I'm not sure how to get them down either.
When is your big day? I haven't figured out what music I want yet. We are having a steel drum band so it makes it a little tricky, since after asking twice, I still haven't gotten any kind of playlist for them from Chandlyn. I really want to walk down to Somewhere Over The Rainbow, and maybe One Love once they pronounce us man and wife...but I'm not sure. It's on my list of things to decide lol.

I definitely want to have the tables at the reception lined with candles. Just not sure whether it is worth bringing them down or getting them from the resort. Any thoughts?
Also I had one last question: have you had any thoughts about what song you will have playing when they pronounce you husband and wife? I am still trying to pick this one.
Less than three months and we will be there!!
So sorry to hear about all of this Missy! That really stinks. I'm sure they can work something out especially since the rehearsal won't take that long. I would stress the fact that you planned the outing around this time that was previously confirmed, so they have to work around your schedule because it's your only option. And sorry, but if they are closing at 6, they can take 20 extra minutes to make sure you get your rehearsal so you are ready for your big day!

This is waaaayyyy too stressful to be happening a week and a half before our wedding!!! Our day trip is planned for that day too! We planned it according to our rehearsal time! OMG I want to scream!!
Sorry...had to vent!
