      I was hoping to have a shot to show you of the Beach Bar (also called JoJo's Bar), where we went to after the reception, but all our pics have people's direct faces in them and I'm not sure how our friends and fam. would feel about having their pics posted online. It was a really cool area though and very central from Gazebo 55 and Tucanes and had swings that were great for photo's. I would definitely recommend it as a meeting place after the ceremony if you aren't doing a private cocktail reception before your reception.

          Great pics!!!! 

           

          Is your table set up the "standard" one? I noticed the gold chargers, and was curious. Did you bring the centerpieces with you, or did EDR supply them? How did the votive candles hold up in Tucanes?

           

          do you have any pics of the beach bar? either Guacamayas or the Martini bar were recommended for us for the cocktail hour, and I wasn't sure what to recommend. 

           

          Sorry for the questions!!!!!

              Allie-

               

              We had votive candles at our rehearsal dinner at Tucanes and they held up fine. I dont recall any blowing out and it was nice to  have a little extra light since the ceilings are so tall, thus their light fixtures are pretty far away.

               

              Martini bar is nice for a cocktail hour since it is in the a/c but it is located at the main lobby, so depending on where your wedding is, it might be a hike. Also, if you choose here, make sure the resort is aware of how many people you expect so they can adequately staff the bar. My cousin ended up  having her cocktail hour at Guacamayas because it was her rain location. It si the main bar for nightly entertainment so depending on how late your cocktail hour would be, it might be crowded. That being said, no one was at Guacamayas at my cousins cocktail hour and the space seemed really large adn empty with only the wedding group, and she had 55 people.

               

              If it were me, I would opt for the Martini Bar. It's elegant, cool (temperature wise and decor wise) and a good size to host cocktail hour.

              Thanks Nikki!

               

              We are doing Gazebo 55, and my 1st choice was the martini bar because of the AC factor, even though it's a hike. but it will be in Nov, so outside might be ok too. the cocktail hour should be around 5pm - do you think Guacamayas would be busy then?

               

              And I think I will bring some votives for Tucanes after all. I love candle light... and we will have the lanterns too.

                Since your reception is at Toucanes, you and your guests are still going to have to hike it from Gazebo 55 to the main area of the resort, so I say go with Martini Bar... P.S. their chocolate martini is AMAZING! Were you planning on having food at your cocktail hour?

                 

                I dont think Guacamayas would be busy then, but you would be surprised with the humidity feels like even in November. My cousins wedding was late September and we were all quite toasty.

                  Where did you find your maracas?  I was thinking about using those for our name cards for seating people at tables...Where you able to get them in specific colors?
