  1. I just had my wedding June 30th and me and all my bridesmaids loved our hair and make up done at the resort salon. We all showed them pictures and they did them exactly as the picture showed. Here is a picture of all of us. I had hair and make up done. They all had their hair done.

    June 30th 2014 wedding

    We had 52 guests. We really liked the resort photographer. I didn't want to pay any extra on an outside vendor either. To me, the scenery is so beautiful it's hard to mess up a picture. We are in love with all of them. We had Gasper and he had ideas and told us what to do. I can you pictures if you want?
  4. Hey all! I just got married last Monday June 30. I just wrote a review. I am all over the place so please ask any questions and I can email pics. We had ceremony on pergola. Cocktail hour at mix beach bar. Reception at carnival terrace. And had the divine package.
  5. We sent out invites without even knowing what package or dinner we were going to do. When the time came to send in the wedding form 45 days in advance I just texted, emailed or fb messaged the 2 choices to everyone that's coming to our wedding. I got all responses within a day or two. So you could still give choices if you wanted to! I'm a month away today--June 30th!
  6. Would you be able to send me pics through email as well? Stace129@aol.com my wedding is next month at the same locations as you. Would love to see it!
  7. I can't believe I am reading more and more of them overbooking. I am going next month with 52 guests and am so nervous people aren't going to get what they paid for.
  8. Hey guys! I am trying to make my wedding program, but don't exactly know the order for the ceremony. We are doing a Symbolic ceremony. Do they have just a basic format for that?
  9. Oh awesome, thanks! Congratulations and I look forward to hearing how everything went.
  10. I see that some people have done welcome cocktails in the lobby and they rope off a section for your group. Is this free?
  11. I am wondering the same thing. It says that guests get the same choice, but they can make exceptions and I have seen many people saying they are offering more than one option. Also, for the ceremony do you have to pay per chair after 25 and how much per chair? I am just doing the standard chairs that come with the package (not tiffany).

    NOW Jade Riviera Cancun

    June 30th 2014 wedding

    Pros: Great weddings, beautiful scenery on terrace
    Cons: Busy resort
    Ceremony: pergola at 5
    Cocktail hour: mix beach bar 6-7
    Reception: carnival terrace 7-10

    We just had our wedding last week and it was amazing. We arrived 2 days before our symbolic wedding and met with Ariadna right away. We were antsy to get to the pool so we kept it as short as possible. Ariadna went the tough our wedding form and narrowed in on all the details. I have her the few decorations I had and explained what I wanted. She wrote everything down. She also took my dress and my husbands clothes right away. They delivered them to our rooms the day of the wedding. My only piece of advice is to not worry at all. You'll get it how you want it. We didn't even do a rehearsal and it was perfect.

    Ok so Saturday night we had welcome cocktails in the lobby from 8-9. They blocked off part of the lobby and marked it with our names. This was free.

    Sunday the nigh before the wedding we had a rehearsal dinner at the buffet for our wedding party, their dates and our parents. This was 28 people. This was also free. We really enjoyed having the traditional rehearsal dinner even though we didn't have a rehearsal.

    Monday the day of the wedding. We weren't nervous at all. We went to the pool in the morning. 4 girls had appointments at the spa for hair at 1230 and the other 4 including me at 2. We were able to get 2 bottles of champagne and orange juice from the lobby for free to bring to the spa for mimosas. All the girls had pictures and were beyond happy with the results. They even said it was the best they've ever had. I had hair and make up done and same thing for me..I loved it!

    The girls got ready in my parents room and the boys got ready in me and hubby's room. The photographer (went with the resort photog) got to the guys room right on time to take getting ready pics then came to my parents room to get us girls. He was very good. He was creative and had ideas of what he wanted. I was also able to suggest things and he was all for it.

    Ariadna called up and told us all to come down. We came down waited about 5 minutes then were off to the ceremony at the pergola. It was about 20 minutes. Then came down to the mix bar for cocktail hour and Darius the bartender had champagne for all 52 of us. We did NOT pay extra for champagne. The entire group went to the beach for some group shots. Got a heart pic which was awesome! Then bridal party and finally me and the hubs. Our colors were peach so we picked peach margaritas as our signature drink and Darius had tons made up with my striped straws I brought in them. We did not buy extra appetizers. No one complained.

    Ariadna came and got us to come look at the reception set up to see if we wanted to change anything. It was prefect. We did not pay for a dj. I had my brother in law mc and father in law had all the music (which just ran). The waiters kept bringing out shots for everyone and did a great job keeping everyone happy.

    The only bad thing was our cake wasn't the right kind. We wanted buttercream frosting and we got whipped cream. We wanted lemon and strawberry and had almond! We didn't order extra and had a lot leftover. No one even eats the cake anyway so we we didn't care.

    After the reception we all went to the dance club at the resort. It was wonderful. It was the best wedding I've ever been to!

    I feel like I'm all over the place so please feel free to ask any questions and I have all my pictures from the photographer so I can email anything you want. We got the emerald package for pictures so we had half day-getting ready, ceremony, cocktail hour, reception and cake cutting. We got 200 pics plus the 24 in our package. We were able to pick those out and take the disc home with us! Also got our photo book before we left.

    It's a busy resort but they know how to throw a good wedding.
