NOW Jade wedding review: May 28, 2010

Recommended Posts

Hi Lauren,

I'm getting married at NOW Jade on July 8th 2011. I'm contemplating hiring a photography from NJ. However you mentioned the photographer at the hotel did a great job. Is there any way I could see the pics that he/she took so that I can make a final decision. Also, would you happen to have a pic of the cake offered in your wedding package from Now Jade? Thanks in advance.

hi you can see the hotel photographer's pictures on our wedding website:

 

www.laurenaandmichael.com (the site is temp unavailable for some reason but if it's not back up in a few days, I can send you some pictures)

 

and here's a picture of our cake. they charge per slice for each additional guest not included in the package. we ended up paying $650 for this cake! way over priced but it did taste good. maybe you can try to negotiate.

Hi Laurena,

Thanks for the prompt response, it was very helpful. The cake is lovely. Did you chose the flower arrangement on the cake, or was this the only option?

 

I still am not able to view the photos that the Now Jade photographer took, your website is still unavailable. 

 

Also, with the Divine package, there is an offer of hair and make-up. Did you use this service? If so, were you happy with the hair stylist? I'm not really concerned with the make-up, but I am having anxieties about my hair, after all it is the most important after my dress. If you used an outside vendor for your hair, can you please leave his name and number.

 

Last, did you get married on the beach, and if so, was there a plank so that you could wear shoes? I need to know if I can wear shoes during the ceremony.

 

Thanks in advance,

Chinaire

Hi Chinaire,

 

I requested the flowers for the cake...I emailed Pilar inspiration pics prior to the wedding.

 

I hired an outside vendor for my hair & makeup - Fernando Fuentes from the makeup pros (www.the-makeup-pros.com). He brings someone w/ him that does hair. They were great and I felt beautiful. My hair and make up held up through the humidity and to the end of the night!

 

I would not recommend the salon at the resort. I had requested pictures of past brides and they never sent me any. I got a manicure the day of the wedding and it was the WORST manicure ever. If they can't even do a simple manicure, I would not trust them with your wedding hair & makeup.

 

We had our ceremony on the Pergola, over looking the ocean. It's concrete so no worries about wearing your shoes.

 

Hope this helps!

Laurena

Hi Yules,

 

You can see our wedding video here: http://mediamorfosisblog.com/2010/09/now-jade-wedding-puerto-morelos-riviera-maya-laurenamichael/

 

I emailed the wedding coordinator inspiration pics for my flowers and centerpieces prior to the wedding. My bouquet and centerpieces weren't exactly what I had chosen but they turned out nice.

 

 

Best,

Laurena

Laurena, 

 

I am just making sure I have everything clear. Your flowers are from the resort florist correct? Also, do you think if I came with pictures of how I want my hair done the salon there would do alright? I don't really have the money to hire an outside person and am just hoping they do an ok job! Also, did you use the resort photographer and videographer? I am also planning on using them and your video looks great! I am hoping you used them! You looked beautiful at your wedding! I loved your dress!

 

Thanks!

 

Jessica

Hi Laurena,

 

I tried leaving a message on the-makeup-pros.com website and was unable to. I really just wanted to them to email me a list of prices, before I consider hiring them. Were there prices reasonable?

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
