Babybird, Did you pay for the DJ to play music during the dinner hour or did he just do it?  I am also wondering if they play music at the Blue Bar and if so, what was is it like?
 

btw brides, I will post pics of the vases this week (I am in the middle of decorating them and will post once I am done)

I am getting married at the NOW Jade Dec 2011.  A few questions for anyone who knows the following:

 

1) Do they use a sound system / microphone for beach weddings?  I am nervous my guests wont hear our vows.

 

2) What are the length of the rectangular tables used for Bamboo room reception?  I would like to bring my own table runners.

 

3)  Has anyone used the Mariachi band?  Reviews?

 

4) I am looking for recommendations for an outside photographer, any suggestions?

 

5) Has anyone brought gift bags for their guests?  Did you have the front desk distribute them?

 

6) Do they have a larger selection of flowers than what is featured in their wedding book?

 

7) Pilar said the reception included in the Divine package is only for 3 hours and then we would have to pay an extra $15 per person per hour... is this true? 

 

Thanks!

 

KRachelB

Hi everyone! I am in the process of setting up my wedding at Now Jade for November but I'm having a hard time picking a reception location. I want it somewhere that allows music & dancing, but not on the beach. Any suggestions? we are having about 25-30 guests. Also I'm pretty sure we are having the ceremony at the pergola, is there a nice place close to that for the cocktail hour?

Thanks!!

hammy, 

the dj just played during the dinner and I was not expecting that.  It was nice relaxing music for the most part and when dinner was over, he played for two hours for the reception.  There wasn't music played during the cocktail hour at the blue bar but I know that you can bring in an IPOD and play.  We were actually busy taking pictures the entire time but my guest loved sitting and talking.  Plus they were able to see us taking pictures =)  Octavio Montes did an amazing job.  The pictures were beautiful!

We are May 2, 2011.. small event- we are being re-married on our 25th anniversary.  The costs are starting to add up...we are taking our children and flying some family as well. AND PAYING FOR COLLEGE, yikes   Ally, on this site posted some great tips... and I will read more postings and learn more as well.

I sent an email to Pilar Saturday and got a response today.    I asked about the aisle runner...she said they only have red, if I want white....it's a $100 extra.

On my tour, she showed me where the bar would be set up...  today I learned to have a private bar is $400.    Also, ally suggested a florists which she says did an awesome job- $200 for everything.   Today Pilar replied if I wanted to use any outside verndors, there would be a $350 charge.

Also, if I wanted my bags distributed to guests...it would be $3 per bag.   I thought Ally said they charged her $2...

They want an extra $110 for my son and his girlfriend to ride from the airport to the resort with us....    Is this the same that you all have received

with your bookings?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
