This isn't really wedding related but I have 3 nephews that will be coming for the wedding and my sister was asking about Milk and drinks for the room. They are younger so they still have milk before bed and wasn't sure if this is something that they can request have stocked in the room. What has been everyone's experience with taking young children to the resort?

 

Thank you! :)

From what I've heard you can just let your room steward know your preferences for the fridge and they seem to accomodate quite well. A small tip early in the week and another partway through might help with special requests like this, but I don't see it being an issue.

Hi Ladies,

 

I'll be at Now Jade next week doing a site visit and I was wondering if anyone here was successful in trying to taste test any of the food options that the hotel offers from the wedding dinner menu?  

 

Also, this is going to be my first site visit --- does anyone know what I should expect, or have a list of suggested questions that I should ask about while I'm there.  I figured since there are so many brides, you ladies must be experts with questions.  I'm so nervous that I'm going to forgot to ask important questions.

 

Lastly, if anyone would like any pictures of the hotel, just let me know and I'll do my best to get pictures when I return.

I can't help you out with the taste testing but I would love to see pictures when you get back!! Also, has anyone used the DJ from the resort? It isn't included in the 2012 package but I'm not using the photographer so I was able to get a DJ for 2 hours. Was the DJ good? Were you in touch with him prior to the wedding to figure out the music that you wanted played? Thanks for the help!! :)

If you go to 5th ave in playa, I would love to know if there are flower vendors! Pics of your trip would also be awesome. Make sure you ask about pricing for a rehearsal dinner, if you are going to have one, and about substituting things from the menu, packages, etc. Also, does anyone know if the sound system you can rent includes lights? We are considering doing the iPod thing instead of a dj and I wondered about the lighting situation. Have fun with the site visit! So jealous...

Thanks, ladies!!! Great question suggestions and I will definitely be sure to check out 5th avenue for flower vendors and report back.  

 

Does anyone know if Now Jade charges a fee for bringing an outside vendor for flowers?  Do any former brides have any recommendations or referrals of flower vendors that they've worked with for weddings at Now Jade? If so, I would love to check them out while I'm there.  Thanks!

Just wondering if you have Ana or Pillar as your WC?  I too am bringing my own photographer but was told I could not substitute for anything. Did you have to do a lot of negotiating to get the DJ?

    • 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.
