    I called and Pillar answered and then transfered me to Sandra and Sandra told me my file had been reassigned to her. I think if you asked for her you can get her. Since your wedding isn't until July I can see you being reassigned to her too!

I didn't take the extra cake per person as desert comes with dinner and there will probably be more than enough cake with the 25ppl included. For the cocktail hour I am only taking the hors d'oeuvres for 25 which is included as most of the guest will be taking pictures and they provide 5pieces per person which should cover the rest, they didn't charge for cocktails during that time. For the champagne toast right after the wedding i was told as long as you are ok with glasses pre filled and served with champagne then it's no cost. It only costs if you want the bottles opened there.
        i've got Sandra now as a coordinator and i am very happy so far. I called her about the quote and asked her to call me right back and she did and we went through line by line and she answered all my questions.

        Hope this helps. if you have any other questions feel free to ask. I'm a detail and organizational nazi lol so I will probably have the answer you need.

        Congrats!

        Thanks for the advice Lisa, that seems WAY more reasonable. I am definately going to negotiate the pricing and I will use your suggestions :) I am sure I will have MANY more questions for you too! I have Pilar as my wedding coordinator which makes me a little nervous, but hopefully it all works out. Good luck on all your planning too.

          Hi Everyone,
          Apparently the NOW Jade used to be called the NH Riviera Maya. I'm going to a wedding there in November and will let you all know how it is!

            Flowers: She said they have a contract with their onsite florist and flowers from other vendors can be delivered or accepted by them but If you want to pick them up or have them deliver them directly to you outside of the resort then you can use them for the wedding.
            ok, thank you so much for the info! Im sure I could find something more inexpensive from an outside florist- I may just even want one or two simple flowers for bridesmaids to carry...

              so it seems like I get to use their photog for the TTD session and bring in a different photog for the day of.

I also just found out that there is a wedding in the same location as me TWO HOURS before my ceremony!!
                I am getting married at the NOW on June 11, 2011 and my mom is a florist, so I asked Pilar if we could have flowers shipped there from an outside vendor so my mom could arrange them on the day of the wedding and she was fine with that. The only thing that I thought was ridiculous was that she told me even though we are bringing our own flowers, they will not discount the price of the flowers out of the package!!

                  Isn't it amazing the inconsistent information that we are given from the same resort. I am going to have to speak with Sandra again cause i was told no. Hopefully I get the answer you got cause it will be alot cheaper!!!

                  Do you know if they accept shipments ahead of time for other stuff like fans or maracas and store them for you? Might be risky to do that but just curious.

                  Thanks
