Recommended Posts

Hello Ladies!

I have read alot of reviews and received alot of imformation on BDW, and decided it was finally time to join and get some help!! I have just started the process of booking my Novemeber 2012 wedding at the Now Jade resort!! We love it and definately think it was the right pick for us... however i am having a hard time choosing the reception/dinner location as i have not actually been to this resort and from the pictures it is hard to tell what you are getting.. We will have around 50 people and i would like something private... I would soo appreciate any feedback from previous Now Jade brides to help make this decision easier.... Thanks

Congratulations and welcome to the forums!

I recently shot a wedding at NOW Jade... great resort! We did a beach wedding but it was located right in front of the pool area so not so private. They do have a wonderful garden area and gazebo that would probably give you the most privacy!

Here is a link to my last wedding there: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150238144924487.334265.18683524486&type=1

 

And this was the ceremony site:

Congratulations and welcome to the forum!!  Recently I photographed a wedding at Now Jade and it was very private and beautiful, the ceremony was on the beach.  The reception was located on the terrace of a restaurant that was not used by anyone else.  It was off to the side and very private.  As you said it may not be easy to see from the pictures what your getting but I hope these can help

Welcome!  I just booked my wedding for April 2012 and I've been searching for advice and tips also.  I think you'll find this site very helpful.  We are having our ceremony on the Pergola, cocktail party at the orange lounge, and reception at the bamboo room.  I requested the cocktail party at the Blue Bar since everyone says its so close to the pergola but it wasn't available so we went the Orange lounge route.  I also wanted a private space with room for dancing and someone suggested the Bamboo room.  After looking at pics I finally made a decision!  Hope that helps a little :)

Hi Ladies. I looks like I am also going to go with Now Jade for our Feb 2013 wedding. I know it seems like I am planning early, but I just want to be way ahead of the game so I dont stress too much! I would appreciate any tips and advice as well. I am also a little confused by the pricing. We are going to have about 50 people as well, and I cant figure out at least even a ball park figure of how much it is going to cost. I see the package prices but that doesnt tell me how much it will be for the extra people. OR maybe I am just not reading it right. So if anyone has any info on pricing that would be great.

 

Happy planning ladies!

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
