    Hey irishdonna!

     

    I've ask for swapping but they said no ? I am too bringing my own photographer and I've asked if I could have something instead... they said no !

    Your wedding is coming close !

      I wasn't pleased with the flowers in the wedding book either..but Ana said I could send her a picture of what I wanted and she'd try to copy it...i'm hoping that works out!! We're getting married in less than 2 months!

      I am now a Now Jade bride too ! We were supposed to go at the Dreams Riviera Cancun but we were dealing with Sunwing (flying from Ottawa, Canada) but they "forgot" us and only have 6 rooms left at the Dreams. And it's coming pretty soon, January 18th, 2012.

      So, we were lucky enough to have space available at the Jade on the 18th.

      Any advice would be appreciated, since I made all my planning around the Dreams...

      Ceremony will be at the Pergola

      Cocktail, probably blue bar but I would prefer Orange bar so I am working on it

      Reception : On the Carnival terrace (I would love to hear your comments or pictures on this, because I am really not too sure about that one!)

       

      What about DJ on site ?

      Ana is my WC, she sent me flowers options which I am not really pleased by...anybody has advice on that ?

       

      Thanks girls :)

          Hi hilla...

          Your wedding was beautiful!! I was just wondering..did they charge you extra for those chairs...i like it like yours without the covers...i just saw from somewhere it costs extra to have plain chairs???

            Hi everyone!
             

            I am new to the forum and was looking into the Jade Riviera for our wedding - we are trying to plan for April/May - yikes!

             

            What package did you all use and do you know what the total cost of the wedding came to? We are planning on around 30-40 guests, so wanted to get an idea of what we would be spending. We want to do a ceremony overlooking the ocean (at the Jade it would be that wooden gazebo I think?) and a cocktail hour and private reception.  Do you all know who the resort photographer and DJ are, and would you recommend them?

             

            Any tips and info you could give would be great- I am getting anxious to finally choose a place! :)

              Hi smspringer13!

              Welcome!!!

              If you want to over look the ocean but not be on the beach the location would be the pergola. From what i have read the best place for a cocktail hour is at the blue beach bar. And for a private reception it really depends... you can spend the extra and rent out a resturant, but i dont believe you can have a dj and dancing? If you wanted to go out side Castaways seems to be popular... and inside would be the bamboo ballroom.. Hope that helps. If you go on the now jade website you can download the wedding book and it gives you all your options:) Good luck!!!

                Regarding the flowers, Ana told me the same thing, I could send her something and they will try to reproduce it... BUT of course everything has a price tag...and it's coming quite expensive !

                I've have asked for 2 quotes from local florist in Cancun... i'll see how I can have more for my money...

                  Hi fellow brides!

                  I'm getting married there Jan 26th and initially chose the eternity package but am thinking of switching to the divine. I haven't asked too much about swapping yet but am hoping to with a few things. When I was initially thinking about booking Pilar told me that there was no swapping allowed but that's clearly not the situation... Are most of you dealing with Ana or Pilar?

                  I'm not having a DJ, i decided to swap him for an extra hour of dancing. I'm bringing my friend as my photographer so swapped the photog service for an extra hr of video. We get private transfer one way incl in our wedding package but decided on swapping that for a free hair and makeup trial. i"ve swapped a lot but i like the fact that i don't have to pay extra for anything. I'll be there on nov 27th for my dec 2nd wedding and i feel like they know nothing on what i want, but i'm just going to wing it and hope it all turns out hehe. Congrats on your upcoming wedding

                    At first, I was dealing with Pilar, I don't know if she's gone are anything but I am not dealing with Ana.

                    She has been very good and fast on communications.

                      I am also bringing my own photographer. Instead of using the resorts for the wedding I am using my time the night before so my guests can come down and take family/couple pictures on the beach. I am then gifting them the photos with my 50 free prints. I was told when I booked that you could only swap out things by using them for the same thing. Like if you didnt 'want to use their bouquet you could get a centerpiece flower instead.
