All the sand ceremony really entails is the pouring of the sand from two vases into one. The minister talks about how it is a symbolic joining of two lives as the sand is now entwined and can never be separated just as your lives together now :) It's like 2-3 minutes long.

 

Uhhh sorry I really have no idea how many windows there were and I'm a bad judge at estimating height lol. Your better off asking Pilar or Ana.

Two questions for you; I am familiar with the pouring of the sand but what else does a "sand ceremony" entail?  and my second question is about the two walls of windows in the bamboo room.  I was thinking of hanging beaded curtains but I am not sure how many windows there are or how tall the windows are...can you estimate for me?

Michelle thanks so much for the review!  How did you get all of the decorations down there?  Did you bring them all in suitcases?  We have OOT bags and goodies for 50+ guests, string lights, sand ceremony vases and sand and our own centerpieces and i am so worried about how im going to get it all down.  I want to get chair bows too but i think im being unrealistic about space in our bags.

Question about gifts from guests. How is everyone handling this issue. I know that even if you tell people not to bring a gift or monetary gift with card they still will. Europeans always give cash and I am worried about how to accept the gifts down there and also where to store anything received. What are all you guys doing? Anyone having a card box at their reception?

Lisa, I'm wondering about the same issue.  I'm putting on our website to please not bring gifts, but there will always be a few who will.  I feel like a card box might be too much, but I also know some of my guests will expect it.  I might just collect them as they come and put them aside and *hope* I don't lose them...but that might not be wise either!

Most resorts have either a safe in the room or one you can request to have delivered. I asked my sister (who also had a DW) and she said she did not recieve any gifts during the trip. All 75 guests waited until her AHR. Here's hoping for her luck :)

This may have already been discussed, but how does the alcohol situation work at the reception?  Do they set a bar up and do they charge per person for hour or is it included?

I was stressing about the same thing right before we went down. We ended up packing everything in 2 large suitcases and a carry on. We were fortunate to have friends and family who took down the extra bags and we just gave them $ for the extra baggage fee.

 

The chair bows won't take up much space at all and definately worth bringing your own to save $. The ones I bought came in a flat package and they could easily fit in with your clothes.

Hi Hilla,

I believe there is a $250 one time set-up fee if you want to have a private bar right at your event. That includes a bartender. No per hour or per person charge. Otherwise, the waiters will get the drinks people order from the bars or restaurants nearby.  That's what my notes say at least!

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



Hey Robin, 

Did the resort say that you could have your sparklers shipped to them for your wedding because this website  http://www.sayanythingceramics.com/sparklers.php  allows you to ship their sparklers outside the U.S.  That's what I was hoping to do for my wedding but I hadn't talked to Pilar about it.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
