Amie! That is soooo exciting! I can't wait till my countdown is less than 200 lol

Thanks, Lisa! It was fun to make and it really got our guests excited for the wedding!

 

I can't remember if I have asked this yet, but her goes..

Have any of your brides, or are any you brides going the Ipod route? I am trying to decide on leaving it up to a dj or saving money and keeping control (which I'm really liking lol) and using my ipod.

Thanks for any suggestions :)

Robin

I am using the ipod for the ceremony and the cocktail hour but using a dj for the reception. Didn't want to have to worry about making sure the music played all night with no hiccups or having to change it if the guest weren't dancing. I didn't want any dead air hence the DJ! This helped save me costs as I didn't get any soloist or pianist or anything like that for the ceremony and no mariachi or trio(which cost and arm and a leg at our resort btw). To have a little control over the reception music I am preparing a list of songs to play and the dj can wing it from there!

Hi,

 

We're getting married at the Now Jade in December, 2011. I'm wondering if anyone else mailed their deposit/credit card authorization forms instead emailing them? We chose to mail (registered through USPS)  them just because of how insecure email is, but it's taking longer than we thought to get there. Has anyone else mailed something to the resort? If so, how long did it take?

I am also doing the same thing as Lisa. The ipod route.

 

AlexJH, I providedl my credit card authorization over email. Remember, credit card companies alway cover you, becasuse they could charge back to vendor.

Robin,

 

They first quoted me $5 per sparkler! The sparklers they provide are those 3 foot long ones. So since we didn't want that, we just asked our coordinator what our other oprions were. Sandra offered to go into the Cancun market and price the small metal ones we were looking for. Those were $3 a box and I think they had 6/box. Then she even went back to the market to purchse them for us! Maybe Anna or Pillar would be willin to do this?

Any of you had any experience with 'Sparklers' at the Now Jade resort?!?! I know I can not bring them with me or transport any into Mexico, but was curious if any of you had found some in Mexico or coordinated them with your WC? Interested in what you might have paid.

THANKS!

Robin

Lisa, great idea to use your own music.  I was planning on using my own song for the ceremony but really hadn't thought about the cocktail party...I guess I could use my own music during the dinner part of the reception too and then I would really only have to use the DJ for 2 hrs that comes with the package.  Are you bringing your own Ipod speakers or are you renting their sound system for $150?  I wonder how big the sound system is and if it could be moved from cocktail hour to the reception without a big hassle.  hmmmm....another questions to Pilar I think.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
