Ladies- I was married at the NOW Jade last Saturday and it was more than I could have ever hoped for. 

 

Pilar is amazing and put me a complete ease.

 

We had 77 guests and it was seamless and flawless.

 

Friday we had our rehearsal on the pergola at 4:30 followed by a 2 hour private cocktail party in the lobby (they sectioned of a large area for us).  After that we all went to the buffet for dinner (they were able to seat us all in the same area together).

 

Saturday was our ceremony on the pergola, cocktail party at the Mix beach bar followed by reception at the bamboo room.

 

We used Derek and Loraina from Photos in Cancun (www.photosincancun.com) and they were great to work with.  We were sent home with around 3000 photos!

 

The resort is amazingly modern, clean and the staff is great.  They brought out balloons and masks and tequilla to kick off dancing at the reception and our guests loved it! Everyone was on the dance floor.

 

I will post more later on the reviews page but if you have specific questions, please let me know!

I am having a really small wedding (about 25-30 people) and I am debating whether I should hire a DJ or if I should just have an IPOD playing for the reception. My concern is that the DJ is quite expensive and I am not sure how good of a dance party you can have with 25-30 people?  Any advice?

I am only having about 25 people and i was able to get a dj for 2 hours by swapping out the band that is included in the 2012 package. I think you can still have a good party with only 25!

there is a band included in the 2012 package ? Eternity or divine ?

I am getting married on January 18th and never heard of that ?

 

We are having a DJ because we don't want to ask any of our friend to be in charged of the ipod and sincerly we don't have time to do it all !!

Hi ladies,

Our wedding video DVD arrived in the mail yesterday! We used the videographer included with the resort and paid for an extra hour on top of the one that was include with our package. The DVD really is wonderful, he did a great job. The Videographer was Alex Gonzalez with cancunweddingvideo.com.

 

I can't figure out how to get this thing loaded up online yet but once I do I will share the link so you can see the quality of the work. We are so happy to have the video, it's great to be able to watch the ceremony again!

It is for the divine package. They took out the 2 hours of a DJ and had one hour (I think?) of a band. I was able to swap that and get the DJ for 2 hours instead. My wedding is in May so maybe you booked yours before they changed the package?

 

I have to figure out what I am doing for music for the ceremony...I guess just use an iPod.

Hi ladies!!

 

A question for all the brides that have already been married at Now Jade : what sort of tipping did you do? We figure we should tip Pilar... just not sure how much. Does $100-$200 seem reasonable? Also, did you tip the servers at the reception, photographer, dj etc?

Thanks for any insight you can give!

The resort is all about tipping. Everywhere you turn there are people working there expecting a tip.

 

I tipped Pilar $50USD and the photographer and DJ $10USD.

 

We probably spent a total of $200USD in tips for the whole week.

I never felt that people were looking for tips but we did so anyways because everyone there works so hard.

 

We tipped Pilar $100, the DJ $50, the waitstaff at our reception $100 and the photographers $100. This doesnt include the tipping we did throughout the week to the bartenders.

 

Everyone is very appreciative of the tips so we were happy to do so.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
