    Hey Girls! I'm getting married at Now Jade March 21, its coming up so quickly! I've read all of your posts and it is so helpful.  We just booked our photographer his name is Derek Campbell and his website is PhotosInCancun.com if any of you are interested.  He seems very nice and he has been very quick to reply to all of my messages.  His prices seem reasonable as well and he has done a few wedding at Now Jade.  We went with the package for 5 hours and its 1000 dollars and you get all of the pictures he takes on a cd for the flat price.  Is anyone else getting married in March?  I'm starting to feel a little overwhelmed now because for the most part I haven't done much planning and just planned on going with the flow once we get there.  We are only having 12 guests so it will be small and we don't want to spend a lot of money on all of the extras which now reading all of your posts I'm wanting to!

      Hi Girls!  Im getting married at Now Jade on March 21, its coming up so quickly!  All of your posts have been so helpful.  We just booked our photorapher, his name is Derek Campbell and his website is Photosincancun.com if any of you are interested.  He seems very nice and has been very quick to reply to all of my messages.  His prices seem reasonable as well, we are doing the 5 hour package which is 1000 dollars and includes all of the photographs taken on a cd.  Is anyone else getting married in March? I'm starting to get a little overwhelmed now that its getting so close.  For the most part I haven't done a whole lot of planning I just plan on going with the flow once we get down there.  We are having a small wedding with 12 guests and we don't plan on paying much for all of the little extra things, but after reading all of your posts I'm wanting to!   I hope it will still turn out nicely even though were doing the extra stuff.  We just have the moments package.

        Lisa, I will see you there then! :) We have gotten the confirmation from Ana and our wedding date will be April 29th. You are welcome to spy! ;) 

         

        I am wondering what everyone has chosen as far as the cakes go? I am trying to fill out the planning form and figured since I don't have much planned the cakes would be a simple decision haha! We are going with the Eternity package so there are not a lot of options, but enough to have me confused.

         

        Also, does anyone know if it costs extra to have a signature drink?

          Hey Hanna, great news! Glad to hear you have a confirmation on the date. What day do you get there? The 27th? Is it a beach or pergola wedding and at what time?

          I haven't picked what cake I want yet, unfortunately I heard they don't do a great job from previous brides but desert is also served so hopefully that won't matter.

          They didn't tell me it cost more for a signature drink. I can't see why as long as it is a product or brand that they serve.

            I am not sure when we will get there, but guessing on the 27th. It is a Pergola wedding at 5.30PM. Our original time was 6PM in May, but I felt stressed about getting enough time for the picture taking so I moved it 30 min. What time is your wedding?

            I don't think a lot of people will be eating cake, so I'm not too worried. I would like it to look somewhat pretty though :)

             

            I have another question, do you need to fill out the whole planning form at once or can I send updates when we know more? I don't trust that the WCs will keep up with new information and such.

              My wedding is at 4pm on the pergola for the same reason as I was told you lose sunlight around 5:30 to 6pmish.

              I am just working off emails for stuff and will complete the planning form about a month out.

                    I have a few questions.....

                     

                    Since a lot of ppl are getting outside photographers, are you all going with a package, or doing a la carte? I have the divine package.

                     

                    How long are everyone's receptions???  My schedule is 6pm beach ceremony, 7pm cocktail at blue beach bar, 8-11 reception in bamboo room. I think 3 hours is short for a reception, was anyone able to get an extra hour?? 

                     

                    From brides who have been there, what location is better for a cocktail hour, the blue beach bar or the orange lounge?

                     

                    And, lastly, has anyone done a deep sea fishing excursion?? And what company did you use??

                     

                    Thanks for you advice!!! :)

                      Ok ladies, I am officially worried/stressed.  My FI packed up all the decorations and stuff that I am bringing with us and we have 2 suitcases, 2 duffel bags, 1 box of crystal curtains and 2 boxes of vases.  That is not including a suitcase each for us for our clothes.  That is 9 bags!!!!  OMG -what have I done?  I think that I am going crazy...
