    Do you think the service fee is like gratuity?  Im wondering if I have to tip the servers at the reception after those crazy high fees?

          It is customary to tip a DJ, or weddingcoordinator here in the States,so if they do an exceptional job, I would say to tip them. We visitd the Now on a site inspection last weekend and it is absolutely gorgeous. We did not choose it due to the pricing for a larger group and we hope to have a larger group. Otherwise, it would have been a shoe in based on location, service, beach, food quality, amazing rooms, etc. Also the coordinator we met there was the most responsive, helpful coordinator we met with.

            So when I first started my planning back in July I was working with Pilar.  Then in August or September, she sent me an email and told me Ana was going to be handling my wedding.  Then last week Pilar started emailing me again and sent me the final form to fill out with all of my guests and everything.  And she said I should ask for her for our meeting on Tuesday.  But anyway we emailed a few times last week and she was very responsive, but then she sent me an updated budget sheet over the weekend and asked me to sign off on it.  Well the entire thing was wrong.  She had the wrong number of guests and had things included that I didnt want so it kind of worried me a little.  So i emailed her Sunday to let her know...no response.  Then i emailed her again Tuesday and no response to that one either.  I even said in the email that its ok if she's too busy to discuss it now, but just let me know she got the email and we can figure everything out when I meet with her Tuesday.  I know all the other brides who recently got married said don't worry about anything, but i've been planning this with them for 9 months and i really dont want to start all over again when I get down there.  Ahh i think it's just nerves now too!

              Hi Erin,

              No worries, I was in the same shoes as you. My wedding is a few days before you. I think Pillar is having problems with her email account, because she keep saying she responsed to my email but I never received her emails. 

               

              The same thing happened to me with my contract. I just email Pillar back with the marked up changes right on the pdf file. This way she knows exactly the changes on the contract.

               If you still haven't her back from her in a few days give her at call 011 58 998 872 8888 ext 4006 and review the contract together on the phone. I find it much easier and she send me revised contract instantly while I am on the phone with her.

              Hope this helps,

               

              Amy

                Which resort did you end up going with? And what do you think is a good price to tip everyone?

                I'm glad to hear Now jade is as nice in person as it is online =)

                  Hi Girls,

                  I am getting married at the new NOW Larimar in Punta Cana in April 2012.  They are previously NHReal of Punta Cana.  They are having their grand opening on Sunday, since it is under new management it has been hard for us over the the NOW Larimar thread to get a lot of info regarding wedding packages.  We have been sent the information regarding the different packages in general as well as the menu options. 

                  What we are looking for, if NOW even provides this, is more detail on things like pictures of flowers that are included, pictures of decorations that are included, pictures of cakes that are included.  I have searched this thread but can't seem to find anything.  Do they have a "wedding book" like some other resorts do? If so can someone please PM me? Thanks so much, this thread has been a huge help in making the decision to go with NOW. Thanks!

                  A

                    I stayed at NH Real Arean in Punta Cana in Feb. Is that the place you are talking about getting married at? Let me know if you any info or feedback if it is.

                     

                    I'm getting married at NOW Jade June 22nd.
