          Kristi, maybe instead you could go to Akumal and swim with the turtles or go snorkling in the cove?  It's supposed to be amazing and there are some amazing bars and restaurants on that cove too.

            This picture is one my friend took and it is kinda bad, but the lantern/candle is in the bottle left corner of the photo. I will see I can find a better one. I am not a hundred percent sure on the rececption tables/chairs. Mention it in an email just in case, but I am almost positive that I never asked IF, I just asked how many tables there would be for my centerpieces.


            Lyzzie33:

            Thanks for the photo!  I was wondering if I needed to bring candles, etc. for centrepieces, so it's nice to see that they have them!  I still plan to bring rose petals and sea shells to scatter around the candles.  What did the candle centrepieces look like? I'm hoping for glass vases with pillar candles in them or something along those lines.  Even if the dinner happens in one of the restaurants, do they automatically provide the tables and chairs for the dancing reception or do you have to ask for them?

              Hi Kristi11-

               

              We just got back on December 4, 2011 (our wedding was November 30, 2011) and we decided as a gift for our guest to get them a catamaran trip.  We ued Paradise Catamaran www.paradisecatamarans.com and they were AMAZING (we even got to swim with some wild turttles).  If you tell them it's for your wedding they add some special touches.  Good luck and have fun!
