    Now Jade
  1. Warning...please read!! We got married in April 2015 at Now Jade Riviera. Everything was fantastic and all our guests had a great time. In the last two weeks we started to get calls from our banks notifying us of suspicious activity on our debit cards Nd withdrawals and online purchases over $1000 of dollars in our credit cards. My parents as well who had used a couple different credit cards (to pay for the wedding down there) also had the same thing. This was strange since we all bank separately. At this point in two weeks it has been 6 different credit cards and 5 debit card accounts t
  2. The buffet (carnival) is whatever you want except no cut off shirt for dinner. Capers dress code is no flip flops or sleeveless shirt but we went in with flip flops. Murcure is long pants and shoes for guys. Cincin is the same thing. And spice is no sleeveless shirts but you can wear shorts and flip flops as long as they are nice flip flops. And bathing suit cover up is okay at the buffet and you have to wear one walking around the resort.
  3. My wedding coordinator showed me the alternative location for the ceremony in case it rains. If you want to message me your email I can send you a photo. I don't know how to attach photos onto this group forum thing.
  4. Well the Buffet food is...buffet Food but we went to a few of the restaurants this week and the Asian restaurant spice is actually decent, the hibachi is pretty fun and the Italian restaurant is REALLY good. It's called capers. Mercure isn't the greatest. And we haven't been to the mexican or cin cin yet or had lunch at castaways yet. I really enjoy eating at restaurants outdoors especially when you are in such a beautiful climate and the restaurants outdoor eating is very limited. So I avoided eating there because I didn't want to sit in a dark Auper air conditioned room For a few hours.
  5. I am not sure how to respond to something on here but to Nybride525, I am at now jade right now and I can take a pic of the laundry service sheet for you and email it to you. We are here for two weeks and I just finished washing a bunch of clothes In the bathtub. We have two kids and one of them in a toddler who goes through about 3 shirts a day. I just put some baby blankets in the laundry bag and contemplating whether to get them cleaned because it's kind of expensive. And not sure how old your kids are but they take our baby bottles everyday and clean them which is awesome! Email me at
  6. I am not sure how long the construction will last. I will ask for you and let you know. I am sitting on my balcony and just took a picture of it. It looks like they are almost done. We are on preferred side, and there is the same construction at the other side as well but not close to the rooms. The preferred pool is amazing (adults only). If you want to sit at the other pool you need to get there at 7am and put down a towel and a peice of clothing or sunglasses or something to keep that spot. Otherwise gooooood luck. Check in for preferred only took about 20 mins. our guests don't arrive
  7. i am still holding strong to my statement about the food. The breakfast and the lunch wasn't as terrible as the dinner. We did the mercury a la carte today and it wasn't too bad. Mainly just a warmer version of the buffet on a fancier plate. Even some guests at the pool said that its just the same stuff every night with different sauces which is totally true. We are hoping the wedding food will be better. There was a beach ceremony going on today and we hung out and watched it. It was nice, except all the drunk men in the preferred pool were so loud and obnoxious sitting there and not caring a
  8. We just arrived at now jade this afternoon. Our wedding is on April 13th. We came to a wedding a few years ago in the mayan riviera at Bahia principe tulum in June and fell in love with the ocean and the beaches. And so we decided to get married here and picked now jade because it was supposed to be a bit on the higher end then Bahia principe. To be honest, first impression I was very disapointed. I know that it's only been one day but the buffet is so gross, and seriously I eat everything. We got to it right when it opened and EVERYTHING was cold. The meat station the juat leave a giant kni
  9. Can anyone suggest a good photographer outside of the resort that is reasonably priced. We are going to use the photographer that is included in our wedding package to photograph my son's 1st birthday, which is a few days after our wedding. That way he will have a little 1st birthday booklet of photos with him and friends and family. But now I need a wedding photographer, someone that can come while we are getting ready and stay during the cocktail hour and part of the reception. Thank You if someone has pictures from their wedding with the photographer can you a few to me at kylie537@@gmail.
  10. Amarie 4713- Thanks, I was leaning more towards having the guitarist at the ceremony. I just wasn't sure if we would get the full 45mins worth. Does he play a wedding type song when everyone is walking down the aisles? I figured that there would be some sort of music playing for cocktail hour anyway at the mix bar. Tracyannhoward-were getting married on April 13th were there for a week ahead of everyone else though so we go from the 1st to the 15th. We have little kids so we wanted time to adjust to the heat and and nap schedules (upgraded to the ocean front preferred suite) since we k
  11. Anyone else getting married in April 2015? Does anyone know if we can do a photo slideshow at Castaways. My mom would like me to have one but I would probably need a small projection screen of some sort. Anyone do one or know if we can? And I know this has been asked before but anyone have a photographer come in from outside the resort. If so then please send some recommendations and approximate cost. I feel like it was a waste to pick the divine package now that I don't care to much for the stuff listed. One more thing, thinking of having the guitarist play since its in the pack
  12. We are getting married in April and we have started looking over the menu and planning extras etc... Can anyone recommend what hor d'eourves they selected from divine menu. What was good, what wasn't. We would prefer the buffet but we only have 40 guests coming. I also found it strange that the menu gives you 3 options but the one pick is the one every guest has to have for entree. It would be nice if the guests had a choice between two different entrees at least. Unless I'm understanding it wrong. Also sone ideas on signature drinks would be great:) We have two kids who will be 1 and 6 at t
  13. We are getting married at Now Jade Riviera in April 2015. When we booked I didn't put my locations since I hadn't receive a lot of photos or max-min capacity of the reception locations. So Pilar went ahead and filled those spots in for me. After receiving the information we wanted the deck terrace but now it's all booked up and she has us at Castaways. We are a small group of around 35 people and I am worried castaways is going to be too big for such a small group. We want dancing and a dj, but don't want this big open empty spaces everywhere. She has given us the option of the pool side recep
