Now Jade Bride on a budget

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am new to the forum!! My wedding is October 17th, 2011 at the Now Jade. So far we have about 40 people confirmed and a whole bunch of "maybes." We are having our ceremony on the beach, cocktail hour at Blue Beach bar and reception at Las Olas. We have the divine wedding package. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on was to save money. I was thinking of bringing my own chair sashes and some decor for the tables but I still have to chose flowers, photographer and videographer. Most people say it's cheaper to not go with the resorts but I was wondering if this was chose. Any advice would be great.

Hi Angel,

 

Congratulations! I know just the person photo/videographer who has 15+ years of experience and charges only for the travel expenses to the destination. My BFF found him perfect for her budget wedding. Well, his idea is to get a vacation once a while and click great photos while he is at it. I'm sure this combo will work great for you. Visit the link to get more idea about his work.

 

Good luck!!

Congratulations on your wedding.   Let me know how it goes since I am getting married in Now Jade in april 14 2012.   I am trying to find the best prices and ways to save money.   I Just talk to this guy Ricardo as a possible dj for my wedding.  His website is www.discomovilcancun.com and his prices seem very reazonable but I am trying to find more reviews about him.

i've heard that some resorts charge an extra fee for bringing outside vendors..i've read some charge $300 extra..so you might want to check in and see if NOW jade does that and if it will still be cheaper for you to go with someone outside of the resort..

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
