    As far as I know, those are the only private outdoor locations. Otherwise you have the ballroom indoors. 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!

    Thank you,

        Hi Rfinger, I suggest  you pick a signature drink that match your wedding colors , also if you include the recipe in the wedding planning form they may make an small tasting when you are there.It is nice touch to offer your guests that drink right after ceremony ...I also recommend something frozen  and refreshing!!

          Wow, that is really nice Sandy.

          Here is a dumb question.  If I bring my own paper luminaries that I am making, do I need to supply tealights, or will the resort give me some?  Are they free, or would that be another charge?

           

          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 the idea of putting it in the planning form. I am trying to come up with some purple drinks now (of course not the easiest!)

              Let me know what you come up with maybe I will copy ;-)  Our colors are like an aqua blue and purple..

               

              Even though it is not our color I was thinking about doing the Olive Garden Strawberry Fresco but just having it called the Finger Fresco

                  After looking at the planning info it states this:

                   

                  We offer during the cocktail hour OPEN BAR and everybody can order anything they want  for drinks , however sometimes the bride and groom would like have special drink(wedding signature drink) , Do you have  a signature  drink? , If you do what is it? What are the ingredients?

                   

                  With the word However, it makes me wonder do they still get open bar and can order everything they want, or would then they just serve the wedding sigature drink?

                   

                  I think because of our colors we might use the Blue Valva as our signature drink since's its an aqua blue color.  This drink is gin, vodka, blue coraco, mixed and then served over sprite and ice.

                    Dear Rfinger: Your guests will get the signature drink and the open bar , the signature drink is optional ...and by the way Blue Valva sounds great...

                      Dear Heather : You can bring the luminaries with you but make sure bring tealights with you sometimes they dont have in stock ,Iam sure Ramon or Anel  will be happy to assist you with that , about the chairs  you may bring your own ribbons  , you can pay them for put it in the chairs  I think is $1 usd per chair , that money is paid to the staff to put it on the chairs...
