       We rented lounge decor for our cocktail hour and I loved the way it looked plus I didn't want all my guests just standing around for a hour.  It was going to be available for the whole evening so guests could use it during the reception as well, but it started to rain, alot, and they had to take it back to storage.  I should have some pictures soon!

        Was the lounge furniture expensive?

          This is a great question- I've been wondering the same. I wonder also if you rent from an outside company, if the resort charges for you to bring it in for the night. Hope some ladies have answers

              Yikes that's expensive for 8 people! But I guess that's how these countries get you when you want a DW haha!

              We thought it was such a money saver doing a DW, which it definitely is but all the extra fees and decor rentals & item prices are INSANE! Too bad we can't bring furniture with us ;)

                Our lounge furniture cost about $500 and that was for seating for 16 plus delivery and set up fees.  Sadly the only pictures of the furniture I have are in a video so I can't post them but they were white couch type things that had pillows in orange and pink to match my colors.  We also had coffee tables done in white with clear glass like tops and small round tables in orange and pink.  Here's a pic with one of the tall orange tables.

                  I can help Janette (we got married at the same resort!)...

                   

                  We ordered two sets of seating for 8 at 2,500 pesos per set plus a flat rate of 1000 pesos for delivery to the resort and set up (6,000 pesos total or around $430 USD converted today).  We were so glad we did...the resort had a nice area to place them and otherwise I guess our guests would have been up on their feet from 3:30 - 6:30...the chairs used for the ceremony went into the palapa for the reception.  My Dad made a comment that he wished the resort had put more of the lounge furniture out...he didn't realize we had to pay for those!!!  We probably could have used one more set for our group of 32.

                    Glad we didnt rent the lounge furniture in the end. I assure you, no one was sitting around! Money saved in our pocket!

                      If I still have money leftover in the budget I may consider it. It's a nice touch during the cocktail hour.
