    jmac,

         I was worried about the same thing.  I talked to a bride who had her reception in the bamboo room this past fall and she said they had NO problem getting drinks when they needed them.  This eased my mind.  Hope it helps!

    However - quick question... for anyone who has had a private reception already in the Bamboo room - I just found out that there is not a private bar included. It is an additional 350 bucks to have one in the room.

     

    Just wondering what the speed of people getting drinks was (as the waiters apparently run and grab them from the Carnival Buffet) - and if it is worth it to get the private bar vs not.

     

    Any help would be appreciated!

        I just got back from our wedding and we had our reception in the Bamboo Room with a private bar, that I did not pay extra for. Plus they have servers so if you request something that the bar doesn't have, they just run next door to the buffett to grab it.  I felt like they brought drinks pretty quick, especially shots :), but just try to remember that every thing takes longer in Mexico.  EVERYTHING.  We had a blast and Pilar was great.  Try to keep in mind that she literally has a wedding everyday in April, May and June and most of the time she has 2 weddings each of those days.  Let me know if you have questions...I'll try to post a review soon.

          Hello ladies!

           

          I guess first and foremost I will start by saying that I have booked my wedding for April 12th of next year at the Now Jade.  I feel like I am off to a great start with all the information that you can find on this site... so thanks and I am looking forward to this next step with all of you!

            First and foremost I would like to introduce myself... I am newly engaged but am also quite the planner... I have booked my wedding for Now Jade for 4/12/13 and am so excited!  I have been filtering through the site and have found a wealth of information, so thanks to all of you.  I will look forward to "working" with you all in this planning process!

              I have a question about the DJ's at Now Jade... I emailed Pilar and she informed me that they use DJ Doremix and Avi Company at the resort.  Is this something that I book through her or do I book it on my own?  I want to make sure that I not only can check it off my list, but also make sure that I reserve a great DJ.  Does anyone have any recommendations from these companies and how I go about booking?

               

              Thanks!

                I'm getting married next month and I will have a DJ for 2 hours. Pilar hasn't told me which DJ I will be having but I assume that she booked it for me. I keep forgetting to ask her so that I can get in contact with them!

                  Set to get married on may 4 th. Was wondering if anyone had any reccommendations for which resort photographerand dj to request. Any ideas that have eased the pain of trying to bring gifts for guests ?

                    I am pretty new to this... But I have heard that doremix is great and other brides have been really happy with them.

                      Not sure about the DJ or Photographer but for gifts I am bringing our favors (drink koozies) but I am also having the resort send a bottle of wine or champagne to each of our guest's room instead of doing OOT bags. I have door hangers that will be attached to each bottle.
