Hi Brides!

 

We are planning on Jade for May 2013, and while it's far away, we're starting to really think about what we'd like...I am very confused by the website's info about the meal- hopefully someone can help me out!

 

We would like the pergola for the ceremony, Blue Bar for cocktail hour.   Dinner is what really confuses me!  So, ok the Divine pkg covers 25 people's meals.  I anticipate approx 50-60 ppl at our wedding, so how does it work? I saw the $20USD/pp set up fee, but is that if we want to rent out a restaurant?  We like the Bamboo Room, so how would that work?  I guess I just don't know if we have the dinner at a restaurant or in the bamboo room, are these different?  what is the cost difference?    Hopefully someone on this forum has held a wedding with approx the same # of guests & wouldnt mind sharing the cost details with me!    As I read the website you can EITHER have a restaurant for your reception (for a private, there is an added cost) OR you can use one of the other areas,the ballroom, bamboo, etc.   Is that right? 

THANKS LADIES!

Well, the sun set about 5:11 while we were there, and by 5:30 it was pitch black.

I have been wondering the same things!! My fiance and I plan on getting married April 2013, have you been able to lock in a date with the resort yet? I was told by a TA that you need to wait until about a year before to try and book group rates and flights but I really wanna get my date set in stone so that I can atleast send out STD's.

We have not locked in a date yet- the reservation form she sent me is asking for our flight/travel details and we don't have those yet, our travel agent said airlines don't release flight info until 12mths out as well.  So, not sure what to put on the form?  For us, we really don't have a specific date in mind, we just want May, preferably the 1st or 3rd week, to not overlap family members anniversaries LOL!  I am thinking I might email Pilar back and ask her what to do.  We are really wanting to send out our STDs in the new year as well, and being a little Type A, I don't like not having anything confirmed yet!  I will email her & post what I get back!

Thanks so much! I'll be there in a week for my wedding and i'm hoping i can change the ceremony time. All in all, were you happy with the festival terrace? How many guests did you have?

Thanks

Yea, I feel the same way! Hopefully we can reserve the date some way, I'm sure other brides have booked more than a year in advance. Let me know what you hear!!

OMG girls ! Only 2 months for us before we get wed at the Now Jade (January 18th) and I just found out I am pregnant...for our second child....

Anybody here got wed while pregnant ? My dress was a bit too large so I should be ok for the dress at least for the wedding in Mexico. (probably not for the AHR)

 

Any advice would be great !!

This message is for anyone who has recently been married at Now Jade - Pilar sent me home with the wrong chair sashes. I know because I had extras at home and they do not match these ones. If you ended up with the wrong light blue chair sashes and would like yours back, please let me know! I don't know how many of them there are, but it seems like a lot =)

I just got confirmation from Pilar that our wedding date is available! April 12, 2013!! I know it seems pretty far away but I was just wondering what everyone would suggest as far as ceremony time for an April wedding. We don't want to be sweating to death during the ceremony so we want it a little later in the day just not when it is dark out! Also any suggestions for reception location with only 20 guests? Unfortunately we will not be able to do a site visit but from everything that I have seen on here I feel confident that everything will work out smoothly. Thanks girls!

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
