Dear Heather: the charge for put the bows is $2 usd per chair ...I said $1 usd before  but they just told me the correct price sorry for mistake

With the colored ties for the chairs, if I would bring that (instead of them charging me $5 per chair, would the resort put them on the chairs for me, or would I have to have a friend or someone do that for me? 

 

Thanks!

Heather

Thanks Sandy for all of your input! 

 

RFinger, your drink sounds good. I was thinking of doing a version of Purple Rain - so vodka, blue curaçao and cranberry juice. Or else we are having very small splashes of yellow in the wedding so I was thinking a lemon margarita. Basically I don't want anything too sweet.

Hi Sandy,

 

Thank you for the information.  It is nice having you on the board so that we get our answers a little sooner.

 

Thank you,

I messed up on the drink name last night was doing too many things at once... Its actually called an Aqua Velva lol I believe the drink was used in a movie. 

 

The Aqua is the colors of the Groomsman shirts and the purple is the bridesmaids dresses.  I attached  color shot.

While there are a couple other outdoor locations for a reception, the Beach and Tequila Terrace seem to be the primary ones. We saw a couple other wedding receptions on a deck outside a restaurant. They did what they could to put up linens to kind of block it off and make it more private.

 

We did the Beach Terrace, and it was a perfect location for our group! The one drawback I would say is you're a little bit further from the restrooms -- have to either go in the lobby or go in the restaurants. We went to the lobby one because there was a wedding on the Tequila Terrace at the same time as mine, and I didn't want to walk through their party as a short-cut to the bathrooms! Really wasn't a big deal.

 

As for the privacy -- the Tequila Terrace is right outside the buffet (separated by glass windows only), so there will likely be people watching from the inside. Other brides have said it didn't bother them, and they hardly even noticed. The Beach Terrace is nearer to the main pool, but it was more private due to the fact that after 5 pm when the pool bar closes, most people head back to their rooms to get ready for dinner and evening activities, so there aren't really people around. We did have some observers of the ceremony since our start time was 4 pm (early sunset with it being November). At first I thought it would bother me, but honestly I didn't even notice them -- little more focused on our own thing!! :)

 

And lastly, the Beach Terrace was an awesome place to dance!! No one had to worry about heels or falling in the slats, and lots went barefoot without having to worry about splinters as they would on the wood deck of the Tequila Terrace.

 

I assume it all depends on if there's another wedding booked for the same day/time as yours, but if you get there and another reception location seems like a better fit once you see the options, I'm sure they let you change. Really, both spots are fine -- it's more about you, your spouse-to-be and all your guests having a great time!

Thank you,

We are doing the tequila terrace, which I think is more popular, based on what it looks like and that I have read people didn't notice other people. I think neither of them are perfect for privacy because the beach terrace I thought was right beside the pool? So there will still be people around. The beach terrace is better if the ladies want to wear heels (tequila has wooden slats, no good) and might be larger, although I am not sure about that. Hope that helps somewhat!

Thanks for popping back in 82turtles. I find this thread is slower than some of the others, so there's not as much feedback from past brides (or grooms). Have you done a review or posted pics?

Dear 82turtles and Rfinger :  

 

Both locations are great,some people like the idea of the roof by the Tequila Terrace but not very good for dancing  at leat not in high heels ....

The beach terrace  give you more privacy  because  it is apart from the Restaurants  area...the inly little issue  is that restrooms are not close... check picture below , this wedding was at the beach terrace  with buffet service  and private bar.102_3290.JPG
