    Has anyone else been told that they don't do weddings (not even symbolic ones) on Sundays? I was not aware of that since my TA told me May 8 was an option when I first started checking for dates, but when I spoke to Ana today she said they don't do any weddings on Sundays??!

     

    Hi Kristie! :)

      She is right Sunday is not an option. I read up on a lot of the resorts in Mexico before selecting NOW Jade they all said Sunday is not an option. I then realized that any wedding I've been has been on a Friday or Saturday never Sunday back home, guess Mexico is the same way! I'm getting married on a Wend.

        Thanks for checking for me SKING!  I feel like more people would be upset about it if they were charging everyone $15/person/hour.  I think $15/person is reasonable at an all-inclusive, but not per hour!!!!  We are actually having a fairly late ceremony on the beach (6:30 I think) and then a cocktail hour 7-8, and then I think just a 3 hour reception, so I would definitely love to know what she did and didn't charge you for.

         

        It's not like not all of the guests can drink if the bar is open during cocktail hour (even if you don't pay for the extras), right? I was under the impression that its just an open bar :)

          You pay $53 per person for the divine package plus taxes and service fee. Works out to about 67$ per person i think!


          Thanks for the info Lisadias!  I appreciate it.  Hopefully I can work out something like this too.

            Thanks for confirming that for me Kara! I probably read that somewhere in my early research, but when my TA gave me May 8 as an option I figured they did Sunday weddings. I can't decide on the date, the dates I like during the week don't have later ceremony times and the other way around. I might just take a pen, close my eyes and see where it lands :S

              Does anyone know which florist company does Now Jade resort used? I am not a big fan of any for the flower options available with the package. I am thinking of hiring an outside florist within the area. Is anyone else getting flower from a florist near by?

                Hi T&A

                 

                I was told they have a floral shop onsight. I am trying to find a florist in the area but I am having a hard time finding one. If you locate one that is reasonable please let me know. They all seem to be as expensive if not more expensive then the resort.

                 

                Thanks

                  You're welcome! I hear ya on the date. We decided to get married here before hand and not deal will the legal requirements down there. We are going to arrive on a Monday and marry on Wend.

                   

                  Something I found helpful was to leave on a Monday instead of Saturday. Taht way you won't wait as long to get married since they don't count Sat/Sun and it was about $40 cheaper per couple.

                    I'm ordering Real Touch flowers online and making my own. You can also order them online through companies who will put them together for you. Here are two websites I found, if interested.
