We opted to not cover the ceremony beach chairs because we liked the beachy look of the white wooden chairs, and didnt want to spend the money on covering the chairs for a 20 minute long ceremony.
We are having our rehearsal dinner at Tucanes and are having colored paper lanterns hung at different heights attached to the palapas roof. My WC said we would need about 25 lanterns and the resort charges a hanging fee of $100. At first, I was annoyed there was such a steep fee to hang the lanterns, but she made the point that the ceiling/roof is quite high and that for safety reasons, we were not permitted to hang them ourselves, which definitely makes sense to me.
We were thinking of floating candles as well, but I was going to look online for some because I thought that the candles offered by Lomas were expensive and sorta ugly, as they are not free floating, they are strung in lines across the pool i.e. they look like swim lane markers!
Tucanes is surrounded by beautiful landscaping so you probably wont need that much additional decor!

I'm thinking about the bridesmaids going with pink....has anyone looked into the chair covers and the cost, I was going to skip them to save money but I'm not sure at this point now.
Angi, can I get the floating candles through Lomas??? As I think the only ones I saw on the website were like $100 each and I'm guessing I would need alot. Any other tips for decorating the Tucanes would be helpful as I have no idea what it really looks like, lol.T
This forum is making me feel a little better as we are all in the same boat
