    I'm having a hard time finding pictures of a beach setup for the dance portion of our wedding. We have the option of renting the disco at our resort, but I really like the idea dancing in the sand.

    Has anyone done this? If so, could you post pictures of your setup? I'm trying to give our WC an idea of what we want to do.

    Thanks so much!!

      I'd like to see some set-up options too. I'd love a beach reception but am curious about what type of dance floor options there are b/c we will be shakin' our booty!

      Can you set up a reception at the Gran Bahia anywhere other than the restaurants and the disco? I didn't know this was an option! Did you get prices?

      Also, dancing in the sand would be VERY difficult (I have trouble walking!) so you'd need a dance floor on a level surface. What about by one of the pools?

        You want to actually dance in the sand?? My first thought is how difficult that'd be. I mean, just imagine when you're walking in sand it can be challenging sometimes... now think about trying to keep your rhythm in the sand!!

          Thanks ladies... I never really thought about how hard it would be to actually dance in the sand. A dance floor or by the pool would be good options.

          Does anyone have pics of by the pool?? Or a dance floor?

          I just emailed Jazmin at the Bahia for prices... but I wanted to send her a pic of what I mean (as we've had a few minimal problems with the language). I'll be sure to post on the Bahia thread when she gets back to me.

            Dancing in the sand would be difficult, dancing in the sand while drinking, now that could be funny! Our resort has a beach Terrace that we have rented out for the dance portion of the evening, so we will get the beach atmosphere, but still be able to dance. Is there anything like that at your resort?

                  Alright, I do not have any pictures, but I am doing my dinner and dancing on the beach. They have never done this before at my resort, but are building a dance floor for me to put on the beach. Its so cheap that I could not say no. I can send you pics in November when we are back and I have my pictures, but I have nothing by ideas in my head for the set up right now.

                  They are setting a DJ up and everything on the beach. I can't wait.

                    Julie, do you mind me asking what they are charging you to build a dance floor? Do you have to pay extra for the DJ??
