    Smart!  I'm not sure where you are having the reception, but we had ours on the South Sky Terrace, and the area alone doesn't require much decoration at all, but we did bring some things, not necessarily to save money but just so we could have it be what we wanted. 

     

    We just used the free ivory table cloths provided by the resort, and then we brought larger squares of burlap to go on top of the table cloth.  We rented glass vases from the decor company through the resort, and we asked them to fill them up with sand.  We made and brought table numbers, mustaches and lips on sticks, so they put those in the sand-filled vases.  The only other thing we had that provided a big pop of color was we brought larger wooden maracas that we used as seating cards.  So whether you bring something or have a florist bring it in, I wouldn't worry about it at all!  It'll look great!

      I am not sure about where to have the reception since I don't really know my options at this point. I am thinking not to really bring too much for the decoration piece. Probably just bring my own chair sashes since I found an awesome price from an ebay seller. They can then use it at the reception in a different manner...maybe placing it differently on the chairs? And then have a couple of lanterns on the tables that have a silhouette or a poem or something of that sort to go along with the theme. Maybe some seashells around it with sand? I'm not sure as yet. But keep it simple and low key as possible. I am sure that simple is better. I don't want to stress about cost or how I'm going to bring it over and all that. I'm sure the view will be spectacular enough. Might bring some sparklers for like our first dance or something and then I am going to bring some items to do a make-shift photobooth where people can put their pictures in an album. I dunno.... I guess I am just not too fussy about stuff like flowers and all that...as long as it looks pretty lol!

        I love the burlap for the tables idea. I was thinking of something along those lines. I was going to order LED candles and have those set around flowers. 

         

        You did assigned seating? How did you feel about that? I have some bickering parents on my FI side, so I'd like to but we're doing a buffet so I don't know if it would be too restrictive. Ugh, I can't decide!!!

          We did assigned tables (people could choose whatever seat they wanted at that table) with a buffet, and I'm SO glad we did!!  We had a few friends who didn't really know anyone else, so it was nice to be able to make sure they were at a table with other people they would have fun with.  Also, we had four sets of parents, and while they all get along fine, we thought it would be more enjoyable for them to each have their own table. 

           

          The tables could fit 10, so we just assigned eight people per table, and then we saved two spots at each table for us.  Then we got a chance to actually sit with everyone throughout the night, and none of the parents could complain about being at a worse table than the other.  It went a long way to preserve my sanity.  : )

              Saving a spot for you and the groom at each table is sooooo clever!  I've never heard of that before.  One of the reasons I love this site so much!

                    Any recent Beach Palace wedding? I'm torn between the romantic red vs. pure packages. Part of me says I should be budget savvy and stick with the free packages.  please post your ceremony pics:)
