  1. Hey, I'm not a photo person so by no means have high standards in terms of photos so due to finances we decided that the most important thing to us was that our guests had a really good time, they had all put a lot of effort travelling to Mexico from the UK so we wanted to ensure that all our money went it to making it a special day for everyone and just went with the resort photographer as outside vendors were just too much money. The photos were pretty awful nothing that my friends and family couldn't do...infact they took better pics then him! He was clueless, hadn't got an enthusiasm, no recommendations just plodded along, he was just annoying to have a round because of his lack of options. He took none of me on my own, they were all pretty much in one place and he focused more an groups then my and my husband and one point he was off taking pictures of some of my guests, like individual family shots!!! They wasn't going to be there picking the pictures and it wasn't about individual family shoots it was our wedding!!! when we went to view them we had NO problems of whittling them down from 280 to 30 they were that medioka!! Luckily I am not exactly a picture person so the ones we chose and had in the book were ok and lovely to look back on but if your priority is your photographer and you can afford to I would defiantly say go with an outside vendor Xxx
  2. Ariadna planned our wedding.......she done an amazing job with the reception it was perfect xx
  3. Here are some pics from our wedding at Now Jade on 1st Nov 2013 xx
  4. MMmmmm this site has changed slightly since November....I have posted some of the pics that the resort photgrapher took they are in my profile under resort photo's. As i said he is very medioka and is like a wet blanket with no umph!!! :-)
  5. Hi I have not been on for awhile so I have a lot of catching up to do :-) I did breifly see comments about the resort photographer......we used him because of budgets but personally I didnt think he was any good at all, infact I thought he was pretty half soaked and had no imagination, he was clueless. We did get a few nice shots but nothing that my family members couldnt have taken, none the less I am not a photo kinda girl anyway so i am happy with some of them. I will upload some shortly so that you can see for yourselves. xxxxx The drinks are higher end and you can make your own drinks :-) a very quite area. most people go to use the internet (cz the room internest sucks) and read or watch TV. Food is ok, just snacks really - mini bagels with smoked salmon, mini puff pastries, nuts, pretzals, mini rolls with cheese and ham xx
  6. It is true about the bacon im afraid.....didnt bother any1 in our group but we did witness it happen, saying that everytime my husband went up they went out the back and came back with a full plate for him and not because he tipped because he didnt ☺ I dont get it though xxxx
  7. We got married on 1st November. Il pop my song choices up xxx

I was very laid back and very sensible too because I knew only too well how how the costs would add up quite quickly. I had my colour theme, I took my favours and little personal things but kept everything within the package except for a few minimal things: I had 4 bridesmaids so i didnt add extra bouquets for them because the costs are quite pricey so i took my girls fans with hot pink personalised ribbons hanging from them, but remember if you do have bouquets use them for your centrepieces at the reception instead of ordering extra centrepieces...(i used my bouquet for one of the tables which they provided a vase at no extra cost) you cant take the bouquets home so you might aswell make good use of them. The extras were: Play system for the reception, Runners for the tables, extra boutinerre, and the cost of moving the chairs from the ceremony to the reception, petals for my flowergirl as I bought a petal basket with me. We left the whole planning of the reception to them and they done a wonderful job. we were lucky because we had exactly 25 guests so we didnt need to add anything really but if you are not careful you can carried away and the costs would rocket. The tables and the room were set up beautiful even with no real added extra touches. Good Luck x

Not really sure how this would work! Thanks They have someone operating it. all you have to do is give them a playlist of what songs to play for "bridesmaids" "mothers" "groomsmen" and "bride" and they will make sure the songs are played at the correct time. xxx

I think this is really unfair, it doesnt have to be an EXACT dollar amount but any sort of credit would be nice. I KNOW 100% i am not using the resort photographer, i dont feel like i should get nothing in return if i am not using them!! Ugh, frustrating! I asked if I could be credited for certain things if i didnt use them and the answer was catagorily NO :-( As it happens I was happy with everything except the photgrapher but they may just be because we only had the package deal which was for the ceremony only so maybe time was an issue. Luckily I had lots of friends and family taking beautiful shots and we are having a reception next week with another photographer :-)
  11. To be fair it must be really difficult to get lots of different shots in 1 hr which is all we had the photographer for (the ceremony) especially when everyone is calling him to take shots of them!!! If you are using him for the full day im sure u will get some beautiful pics the only advice i can give is make sure u have a list of shots you want. Who you want in them, certain poses, and tell him to only listen to you. He was too busy shooting my family members.....they wouldnt even be there to view and pick them so it was a complete waste of time. You will have more time so just go in prepared and you will be fine. We are partly to blame because we just expected him to tell us what to do but he just focused to long on group pictures rather than "us" so he was shooting the same shots that my friends and family was so when we went to view them i felt id already seen them on their cameras/phones. Give him list before hand for him To work to Sarah Xxx
  12. I didn't have a hair trial, I went with a picture and my extensions and I was more than happy with what she done. My mom and mother in law and bridesmaids were happy with their hair also. They are very good at what they do. Sarah
  13. Whatever is on the contract is what you pay.....everything is included. We paid by card so I am expecting a fee from the bank for international transaction fees but this is nothing to do with now jade. Xx
