    When did you have to let Pilar know what meal they were choosing?

    Thanks!!

    I haven't been there yet but I am pretty sure the bamboo room has round tables which seat 6-8 people. I may be wrong but I believe I read that somewhere.

    Pilar sent me a wedding planning form which has all our options including cocktail hors d’ouvres, appitizers & dinner entrees. She stated that the form should be returned 45 days before the wedding.

      As Shannonmarie said 45 days prior to the wedding is when those details are due to Pilar regarding food choices.  I do know that Pilar said during the webinair in March that for an additional fee your guests can decide on the spot which entree they would like...I don't know exactly how much extra that is though since I plan on organizing food choices ahead of time!

        Great, thanks!! 

         

        Do you know how it works for drinks at cocktail hour and the reception? Is it still unlimitted?

        I do believe it is unlimited drinks. For the reception I believe they get your drinks from the nearest bar. You can rent your own private bar set-up inside your reception for $250 I think. I am debating whether or not I want to do this. I kinda like the idea of having it right there but not exactly sure if it's worth the extra money.

        Hey Nikkole,

        You should check out the Official Now Jade thread. There's tons of information throughout the whole thread!

          I honestly wouldn't spend the extra money. We were supposed to have our reception on the terrace but due to possible rain we were switched to Castaways Restaurant. I never noticed any issue with getting drinks. Honestly they are really good at keeping the drinks and shots coming. I would either save or spend the $250 on something else. Just my opinion though! There is no limit on drinks during the cocktail hour or reception! Darius is the bartender at the beach bar and he is absolutely fantastic!!

            I had 45 people in the bamboo room. I sat the whole bridal party at a long table facing all of the guests (10 people).

             

            You can sit up to 10 people at a round table.  I had 1 long table for bridal party and 4 round tables. It was perfect and had a nice space for dancing in the middle.

            Oh great! Thank you for the advice! Our reception is also at Castaways. I will take your word for it & save the money! So do you just keep ordering drinks from the waiter/waitresses?
