Hey Ladies, while doing some resort research I came across the Now Riviera Cancun. The resort is about 1 year old. It also seems very reasonable in price. Has anyone heard of this resort or had a wedding here? I am going for a site visit next month so I can let everyone know what I find!

Hi Carly, we just got engaged at the NOW Riviera in February- we liked it so much, we decided to get married there this November! It's beautiful, the food is amazing, and the staff is INCREDIBLE!

Hi Carly!

 

I am also considering having my wedding at the NOW. We went there in October and it was very nice. Trip Advisor has mixed reviews but we really enjoyed it. We have stayed at the Dreams Tulum before too and it was comprable to that. The only thing I didn't like about the NOW was that their room service menu wasn't the greatest but that really isn't a big deal. Let me know if you want me to send you some pics of the resort! My email is brownwedding2011@gmail.com

Hi Ladies!

After consideration of many resorts in the Riviera Maya area, I have put a reservation on May 7, 2011 at Now Jade Riviera Cancun. It does get excellent reviews on tripadvisor, expedia, etc. There have been some minor complaints, such as waiting long at restaurants, some say weak drinks, some say not enough nightlife. But, hey, every place is going to have some complaints. The main reason I chose it was because it is a good value for the guests, the place has a modern decor and appears to have been recently updated, and the venues for the wedding ceremony and reception look great. I have been working with Jill from Sand and Sun Vacations, whom I found here, and she has been great. I can't wait to hear what you guys think after your site visits. I think we'll be making one in August.

I just found Now in my research this week and i loved how affordable it seems for all the amenities it seems to have. I am working with Jill too, and we were also looking for a late april/early may 2011 wedding. Keep me updated when you start finding out more about the wedding packages at the Now.

Hi,

I know that the Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun used to be the Paradisus Rivieria Cancun (they bought the hotel on May first) so if you are looking for information about that one you can go over to the Paradisus Thread (although we are all sort of in the dark with the hotel changing over a lot of things are changing). Not sure if this helped, but I thought I'd try.

Thanks ktchi, that does help. I'll check that out. I can't even find a website for them...just reading reviews on tripadvisor and expedia. Im relying on my TA to hopefully provide the info I need.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
