RECEPTION SET UP: 9/10
We kept it very simple. All our guests on one long table. I provided a seating plan which got muddled up so when we got there I had to move people around which caused a few problems with the food service. For some reason Natalia was convinced that we had sat in the wrong seats and that the way she had laid it out was correct!
I brought homemade wine glass luminaries one at each setting, silver heart shaped spoon favours for the ladies and playing cards in metal cases for the men. The place settings were the 2nd personalised maraca so that along with the one they received in the chapel each guest had a pair. I also printed everyone an individual menu with there choices on it which proved invaluable due to the seating plan issue!
I provided a photo of how this was to be set up and it was perfect.
When we viewed the site we expressed concerns about the light so Natalia had organised for an extra set to be put up, they were flood lights but what they lacked in ambience they made up for in power!!!
We had the flower arrangement included in the package which was tiny and really not worth having. It was number CP-001 in the flower brochure. This isnâ€™t an area I was fussy about but the tiny arrangement in the centre of the table looked pathetic.
If you want your tables to have wow factor expect to have to pay extra.
I also brought luminaries from home to be set out in a circle on the sand to mark out the dance floor, these looked cute but due to the wind blew in on themselves and extinguished the candle or burned the bag. During our stay several times we saw the plain paper ones the hotel provides and they were much better. In hindsight I would pay for these at the hotel or do more research at home.http://i913.photobuc....ges/MD2857.jpg
There was another small wedding by the Dolphin pool the same night which is not too far away from our set up but we never heard or saw them, not sure if they can say the same for us! Ha ha
