Hi Meg, sorry for the delay - I'm not on the forum much anymore!!
I should have a few more pics of the Thai Club, I will try to send you some if you can send me your email addy. It's kind of like little private cabanas, so there is a lot of room but also a lot of private areas too...So I think you get to use it all, I only did the semi-private so I'm not totally sure on how the who private function goes. It's all open to the outside but with thatched roofs, very very beautiful. There is a lot of places to dance at the Thai, but again, you might have to message someone who did the private because I'm not sure how they set it up - the whole restaurant is like an open beach house with really nice wood floors then it leads right to the sand.
The cocktails after the ceremony were done by the "beach waitress" she took everyone's orders, and seemed to keep people happy. I was torn between having the cocktail hour too, I think the difference is that you would have your little area set up and have glasses as opposed to the beach plastic cups.
The centerpieces were done by the resort, the tables looked beautiful - you could put candles, I think there were some but I can't honestly remember - I'll have to check the pics!I
Hope this helps a bit!

Do you have any more pics of the actual Thai Beach Club? maybe of the inside? I talked to Sandra and she said that I could bring my own music so I was wondering what the inside looked like -maybe make a make-shift dance area.
Also, you mentioned that some of the waiters came out to provide cocktails after the wedding and before dinner. My fiancee and I have been going back and forth about purchasing a cocktail hour between the ceremony and the dinner. I don't want to waste my money but I also like the idea of having cocktails on the beach before sitting down for dinner. what are your thoughts?
My last question was about centerpieces for the tables. Did the resort offer you glass vases to use? are candles allowed?
I look forward to hearing from you,
