  1. We booked through a travel agent that actually booked through Apple Vacations. Apple was having a deal that if you booked 5 rooms you would get the 6th room free up to 3 rooms free. Also, for every 12 people that booked air fare you would get the 13th fare free. We needed everyone to book by the beginning of December for our May wedding to get that credit though. It wasn't that big of a deal because most people book by then. Most people put down a deposit of about $250 and then they do not have to pay for the rest of the trip till 45 day prior to leaving. Once everyone pays, from my understanding you get the credit back on you credit card. I am not sure if they are still running that promotion though. I would contact someone through Apple Vacation because they own the Now Sapphire and would know what discounts they would have for a large group booking. I have heard from others that have done a block of rooms at a discounted rate through the resort still get charge for rooms that were never booked, so if you don't know how many people you will be having at your wedding I would not book a block of rooms.
  2. I was a wedding at the Now in January so here are the food options that I tried and what we ended up selecting. For apps, my friend had pizza, meat balls, and quesadilla. I think she also had sushi but it never came around to me so I did not try it. I did have the sushi from the restaurant and it was okay but my Fl and I love sushi so we are a little picky. Anyway, all the apps I tried were good. We selected different options though. We decided on mini cordon blue (read another persons post previously that said they were amazing), spring rolls, cheese and bell pepper turnovers, fried chicken taquitos. For the apps, we google some of them since the description are not helpful and that helped some in making our selections. For dinner, my friend had spinach salad with goat cheese- it was really good but we ended up selecting the ceaser salad since that is favorite for both my Fl and I. Tomato and basil soup- I am not a huge fan of tomato soup but this was actually really good, my Fl did not like it so we selected the french onion soup Beef tournedos Duo and Grilled salmon- I had the beef for dinner and it was great. Probably, one of the best meals I had while staying at the Now. We ended up selecting the same options for dinner mainly because we have people coming that do not eat meat but will eat salmon. I also read a previous review about food and they had the chicken with spicy almond sauce and said it was great too. For dessert, I can't remember what we ate but we selected the strawberry cheesecake. For cake, we went with three milk. I don't know what my friend had but read review that three milk was delicious. I will say though I tried a chocolate cake at the coffee shop and it was really dry and didn't taste the same as chocolate cake here in the states. We sent our invited out 9 months prior to the wedding because we skipped the save that dates and did pretty detailed passport book and RSVP boarding passes. Since we sent them out a while back, we did not include the foods options. I just e-mialed our guest to see what they would like, so I am not stressing too much about it.
  3. I thought that was really funny as well. I was actually at a wedding at the Now in January so here are the foods I tried...and what we ended up with selecting for our wedding. For apps, my friend had pizza, meat balls and quesadillas. I think she also has sushi but it never came around to me so I did not try it, but I did tried the sushi at the sushi restaurant and it was okay. My Fl and I are big sushi eaters so don't expect a lot from an all inclusive resort if you eat sushi a lot or are picky about it. Nothing was bad that I tried but we selected different options for our apps. We ended up selecting, mini cordon blue (read another post that recommended it), spring rolls, cheese and bell pepper turnovers, fried chicken taquitos. We wanted some veggie options and some with meat. For the dinner options, Spinach Salad with goat cheese, roasted apples and walnut confit; mustard dressing - it was a really good salad but we ended up selecting the cesar salad as our option since my Fl and I both love cesar salads Tomato and basil soup with cheese balls- I am normally not a fan of tomato soup but this was actually good, my Fl did not like it so we ended up selecting the french onion soup Beef tournedos duo; tomato and green pepper sauce- this was great probably one of the best meals I had while staying at the Now (my second favorite meal was beef tacos that were served in the buffet, they are not served everyday but I suggest checking them out when you are there) - we ended up selecting the beef and salmon- which was the other option my friend had at her wedding, we stayed with the salmon because we have people in our group that do not eat meat but will eat sea food. I also read someone else post about food selections that picked the chicken who said that was really good as well. I can't remember the dessert options that we had but we ended up selecting the strawberry cheese cake We didn't do save the dates and created a passport book with boarding pass RSVP card as out invited and sent them out 8 months prior to the wedding to give people time to plan and save money. Since we sent our invites out a while ago, we did not include the food option in the return RSVP. I have all our guest e-mail addresses, so I just e-mailed them and ask them to get back to me by a certain date. I know it is not as formal as including them in the invites but nothing I am stressing about. I also plan to communicate more with my guest as time gets closer like sending them tips on traveling internationally, what to expect when arriving in Mexico, etc.
  4. To upgrade the chair, it is $10 per chair. You can save money and transfer the chairs from the ceremony site to the reception but they charge $2 to transfer all the chairs plus you will be charge for the chairs you did not have at the ceremony i.e. for those that are in your wedding party. Or you can pay $10 per chair at the ceremony and $10 per chair at the reception. I was at a wedding that transferred the chairs and it wasn't a big deal. I don't even think the bride and groom where there to even notice them doing that because they were taking pictures. This wedding was at the pool terrace so there was a little more room compared to the tequila terrace but if you do group pictures after the ceremony you could have your guest stick around to watch the photos before sending them to the cocktail hour. It would give the resort some extra time to make sure the reception it set up and ready to go.
  5. Thanks for the response. We actually selected our foods options this weekend. Google was great help with the apps since the descriptions for some items are not helpful. I actually met with Anel back in January and she informed me you don't need a seating chart just a key for the servers to know what guest is getting what type of food just like a wedding back here in the states. For example, she just needs to know if you put a purple sticker on their name card to represent a beef option. Also, if you want to cut cost and still do the divine package you can select food options from the eternity menu and just get charged extra for the eternity menu if you are over 25 people. I think it is $94 (eternity) vs $99(divine) plus tax and service charge. Not a big difference but every penny counts when you are planning a wedding. We are still debating if we need all the extras in the divine package though since we decided on food options from the eternity menu and the $600 extra to upgrade to the divine package could help with paying for the extra food for the 44 guest that we have coming. I know if the wedding booklet under the divine package it gives a description for the wedding set up with white chair covers, etc. Dose anyone know is that set up the same for the eternity package?
  6. Can anyone give advice about how to choose dinner selections and appetizers? Anel, told me I could give my guest two choices, so I want to make sure I am picking the best options. Also, the appetizers do not have any descriptions. Previous brides what did you choose and what do you recommend or not recommend?
