@smilenstacy should have some grand terrace pics to share as she just got married and had her reception there! Both are nice locations but the grand terrace does not cost extra but the view from the caribbean terrace is gorgeous!

 

 

Hello!

I haven't been on here in a very long time as I have put the wedding planning on hold. I am now starting to continue planning and am realizing that I am not set on anything!

We have already reserved the Caribbean Terrace (rooftop) for the reception, but now I am beginning to contemplate moving the reception to the Grand Terrace (by the pool) so that I can decorate the pool with floating candles and Chinese lanterns. I am looking for your opinions and advice on this. It would be greatly appreciated! Also, if you can share photos that would be great.

Thank you in advance!!!

    Thanks for the reply! Here is the thing though, we are getting married after sundown (ceremony begins at 5 and reception at 5:30), therefore I'm afraid that the beautiful view from the Caribbean terrace will not show. Can anyone advise on this?

    Thanks!

      What time of the year is your wedding? I had my 8:00 pm reception at the restuarant downstairs from the terrace and had our photos there two weeks ago. The light was great up until 8:30 or so.

        My wedding is in December. When was yours? We were told that it gets dark by 5pm then. Do you know if this is true?

        Thanks!

        My wedding is December 19th and sunset is around 5:15pm! So you are right, the view might not be there after it goes down. Maybe ask yourself what overall vibe you want. you can still put candles and lanterns at the Caribbean terrace, but they will be placed differently. Try googling images of each reception place to see which you like best.

         

        I'm getting married at Beach Palace in an area with a private pool, and I know they let brides put candles into the pool and string lanterns over. I think I've looked at every wedding reception in the space to get ideas haha (hours googling!)

        Yes it will be dark- our wedding was at the end of November and our ceremony was at 4, cocktail and 5 and reception at 6 and it was dark by the time our reception started.

          @shawn0487 where did you have your reception? What are your thoughts on having it on the Caribbean Terrace when it is dark? Is it still worth it? Would anything show? 

           

          Confused bride over here =(

           

          Tia!

            When have other people heard from their on site coordinators? I have 20 days till my wedding and still haven't heard from our on site coordinator. My off site coordinator, Brenda, only responds to my emails about once a week and never answers all the question and requests I have. I'm getting nervous and frustrated about the whole thing.

            I did not have my wedding at Moon- my wedding was at Sun.

             

            But my rehearsal dinner was at Moon and it was on the verando terrace.

             

            The view isn't as spectacular at night at the Caribbean terrace but it is still cool with the pretty bar and sort of seclusion. (they keep half of the terrace open to resort guests.)  Personally I don't think it's worth the extra cost per person to have the reception up there.

            You should have been contacted at 30 days.  I would give the wedding dept a call!!
