I'm getting Married on May 8th,2012 at the Now Jade! Super excited, but ALREADY frustrated with Pilar, and all of the extra costs! Can anybody give me an idea of their experience with their wedding, as well as a rough idea of how much you ended up paying! ...or ideas on how I can make all of the a la carte prices stop adding up! I think its outrageous the price per person for the extra drink for the cocktail hour when everyone has already paid to have it all-inclusive!
New Bride at Now Jade!!

Hello Dawnliana! I am also getting married at the Now Jade, in November 2012! I have just started the process, so unfortunately i dont have any answers for you, but would be interested in hearing what others have to say!!! Eek i dont like hearing that there is alot of extra costs! I did know ahead of time of the additional costs per person, and i agree its alot for an all inclusive... but they will get you anyway they can:) Is there anywhere else you are finding hidden costs? Cant wait to hear what other Now Jade brides have to say!!!

Hi brides! I'm getting married April 2012 and was wondering the same thing about A LA CART vs. package.. We purchased the DIVINE package and that only is for up to 25 guests - we most likely have 40-50 guests...... The extra costs per person I think is crazy too!
Please let me know if you found anything out -
I'm also looking into bringing in an outside vendor for flowers, DJ and photographer -
Any suggestions/input on someone that had their wedding there about the same size as ours would be really nice!! PLEASE : )

Sarella727.. As our wedding is in Nov 2012 we have not really started with the details yet... but i hope to start tslking with the WC soon to see what it will all cost... I am thinking about outside vendors as well, and have heard mixed things about what the cost is to bring them onto the resort. so we'll see:) Have you decided on your locations?
Posted 15 September 2011 - 09:31 AM
Yes, I believe we have made our decision on locations:
Ceremony: Pergola (I would've picked the beach, but I want to wear shoes so I picked this spot and it's beautiful)
Cocktail Hour: Blue Bar (outside)
Reception: Oceanview Terrace
Still trying to see what time we should start our ceremony, because I looked it up and the sun usually sets @ 7pm in April.... I reserved 3pm which might be too early... I want to have sparklers after the ceremony or at some point and they won't look as cool if it's light out : )
I will update on any other info - and please do the same : ) thanks!

We are also getting married (I hope) at NOW Jade, May 2013. We haven't booked yet since it's a bit early yet,but we just lovewhat we have seen about the resort, and all the options! We are also likely getting the Divine pkg (25ppl) but will have at least 40, probably closer to 60. Hopefully some other brides can share their experiences, it's awkward asking about others' money, but since we're all virtual strangers, hopefully someone won't mind dishing out the details!! As far as the flowers, I did see this on another thread:
10 boutenierres, 3 wrist corsages, 4 bridesmaid bouquets, 1 bridal bouquet and 2 centerpieces and the rental of 9 vases and a basket for only $200 USD!! NOW Jade wanted $65 for one bridesmaid bouquet?! In the end we saved close to $800 using Juliana and the flowers were so beautiful, my bridesmaids are still talking about them!! NOW Jade's florist did not like that we ventured out to get our own florist, but there is no clause saying you can't. Also, when I told Pilar the price she said "I don't blame you". Perhaps now, NOW Jade will re-evaluate their prices for flowers. Highly recommend Juliana: email@example.com
Worth a shot anyway, no?

@Sarella we are thinking 4:00 ceremony, cocktails from 4:30-6, dinner at 6:30ish? Although I dont know- does the sun set earlier or later, depending on the time of year?
