      JessnNeil - Ana is my WC as well and she said that Now Jade no longer allows swaps.  If you don't want to use the flowers in the package, then you could do a la carte.  I know that there were brides that were able to switch some services for others, but apparently, they don't break the packages apart anymore.  I tried too, but got shot down multiple times :(

          Hello!

           

          My girls are carrying parasols instead of flowers - I have seen quite a few pics of this and LOVE how it looks.  It's very affordable which is even better!!  If you go to lunabazaar.com they have a lot of inexpensive options!!

If we didn't want to do the first dances and stuff I would just to it in a restaurant instead. Now I can't afford my outside photographer and that bums me out!!


              By reading this thread I just realized that the $53 pp for the dinner does not include the apps, toast, drinks, etc that the rest of the package includes.  I thought $53 pp was expensive just to include all of that because the resort is afterall, all-inclusive.  hmmmmm.  I have been reading about how people were able to substitute items within the package or work out a deal on the pricing.  I would be interested in any tips on saving money.

               

              I received info from Pilar which states that bows and flowers on the chairs cost $5 per chair.  I asked her if we could bring our own bows (no flowers) for the chairs and she told me that they would charge $1 per chair for set-up and ironing.  I found a site that offers chairs sashes for $5.99 per 10.  even with the extra $1 charge from the resort, that still saves me over $100.  I am also thinking of bring my own table runners aslo.

                  I haven't heard back from Ana in weeks and I'm getting pretty upset about it...anyone else having this problem again lately? I'm only a month out and I still haven't gotten my requested quote of how much $$$ we're looking at so far...definitely getting nervous

                    I just had my wedding at Now Jade on 12-2-10.  It was beautiful.  I did the fountain for the wedding and I did the bamboo room for the reception.  It was awesome.  The bamboo room has two walls of windows that overlook the courtyard and the ocean.... it was perfect.  After seeing the resort, I think it is the best choice for dinner and reception.

                     

                    I brought my chair bows and table runners.  I did not get charged the extra charge for ironing.... but I let Pilar keep the bows and table runners.  I got them so cheap and didnt want to haul them back home with me.

                      I did travel mugs as well.  I brought an extra suitcase with all my gifts and additional things for the wedding.  However....I did get questioned at customs in the airport about why I had all the mugs and if i was planning on selling them.
