    I just came back from Now Jade this Monday. The wedding was beautiful and touching. Everyone loved it.

     

    I didn't bring any extra things over there. Pilar did a great job. Relax, your wedding will be beautiful.

      Could anyone provide more details about the actual ceremony and reception and what is included in  the Divine package?

       

      I am trying to limit my budget and am not a girl who cares a ton about flowers and centerpieces, etc. I think the beach and location provide a great decor but I also don't want it to look empty.

       

      What about a DJ?  I imagine having about 20-30 people, but not really a dancing crowd.  How much does a DJ cost?  Are they set up in the same area as dinner?

       

      Thanks.

        I had my reception in the Bamboo room and the room itself is quite nice! I didn't bring anything decorations...but I did pay for that starfish and sand center piece..which was quite expensive. But Ana did had some clear/shiny beads onto the table which were nice..and of course there were candles. I thought it was still beautiful.

          Hi,

           

          I am probably going to have around the same number of people as you...25-30. The DJ is $1000 for 4 hrs but I was told the reception was only 3 hrs so I am going to ask how that works??  The DJ is set up in the same area as the reception. I am leaning towards getting one even though it costs a lot but I don't want the reception to fall flat if its a small group and there is no good music to dance.

           

          As far as decor goes its sounds like they don't provide much other than white linens and 1 centre piece. Anything else you pay extra. I am in the process of deciding what to bring b/c I really don't want to buy much and have to carry it all down there....the less the better for me.

              Hi,I live in Alberta too,and we are getting married at the Now Jade ,we had a justice of the peace come to our house,she did the marriage license so it is all done before we go,but the wedding will be there.so much easier then my friend who had to have all papers and transfer them into spanish,then english at a cost both times,as well as blood work there,and you have to be careful when you book your flights that you are there with the minimun 48 hours prior.....Just to  much for us.It cost us $150,and for us it is just a formallity to make our destination wedding so much easier and the ceremony will still be the same as far as any of our guests know,we didn't even tell family so it is the same for them.

                    Can you let me know who you used for the Justice of the peace? Im trying to find one to do exactly what you described below and am not sure where to look (Im in Calgary).

                     

                    Thanks!
