    I am trying to decide whether it is worth having tiki lights and votive candles. From all the beautiful pictures I have seen, the lighting seems perfect for an outdoor reception. Any suggestions Tiki lights or no tiki lights...votives or no votives on the tables. I am all about the less is more concept. But I am literally a few weeks away and I am starting to over think EVERYTHING!

      I used both tiki torches (I think we had 10 total) and votives on the tables. The votives were part of our centerpieces - we just did candles & shells, very simple. I liked the look with candles & tikis (we also used luminaries). Dreams will add an extra spotlight for you at the reception site and the tree lights will be on so you don't have to use votives or tikis, but I think it's a nice extra touch. Where is your reception - Cascade or Oceana?

        While there was adequate lighting at Dreams, I still had votives. There is a certain ambiance that the pillar candles and votives created. I did forgo the tiki torches but think that they included then during the welcome dinner. While I wouldn't pay Dreams the outrageous fee for votives but do feel like they make a difference.

              I forgot to mention that I also did the luminarie bags. I didn't have time to personalize but I brought them with me.

              100 white paper lunch bags
              100 tea lights

              This is a must!!!! Trust you won't be dissappointed. It looks great in photos and at night to have your pathways lit is really cool.

              I also got married and had my reception at Cascade Terrace. It's awesome!!!!!!!
