    Hi!  I'm planning our wedding at the NOW-Jade for Feb 2013 (waiting for confirmation of the receipt of the contract...so hopefully this is happening on Feb 23, 2013 to be exact)!!!  Quick questions:

     

    @Dana Mendez - - Re:  DJ - - Did they give you a few to choose from or was there someone specific they only allow?

     

    And to all...does it seem like they are still allowing you to bring in some of your own decor?

     

    THANK YOU!!!

    There are a few DJ's to choose from, but I'm not sure that they let you know that information.  From what I have heard, request Dorremix.

          Hi ladies! I am getting married here on May 17th! Only 2 months to go! We are having about 20 people with us so it will be farely small. I have been able to switch some things around in our package. We have the divine wedding package but I am not using the photographer so I was able to get a dj for 2 hours instead. Since we do not need a private transfer from the airport I was able to get my trial for hair or makeup free...I think I will have to pay for one of them but I don't remember off hand. We are just doing a symbolic ceremony and getting married here in the states prior to going down. Our family will not know this so the ceremony will apparently look as legit as possible! I think I have everything figured out regarding food and I am doing some upgrades (such as different chairs.) We are having the ceremony on the beach, cocktail hour at the blue beach bar, and the reception on the terrace. This site has been so helpful for me in the planning process!

            Kitkat,

             

            I think I saw you on the other board but I am getting married a day before you!  Also, my fiance is from Pittsburgh and I am originally from Philly.  So come look for us :)   Our wedding is small maybe 20 people.  We are getting marrried on the Pergola at 3:30, then doing a 3 hr cocktail reception at the Orange Lounge and then dinner at Tamarindo.  We got the Eternity Package and Pilar has been awesome to deal with.  I can't believe it's only 2 months away!!!! I feel like there is so much I still need to do :)

                Kerri - I can't believe that we only have 2 months!!!! I think I am on top of everything but who knows!! What all do you still need to do? What are you bring with you to the resort? I am sure that we will run in to each other while we are down there...at least I hope we do! That is awesome that you guys are from PA! We are hoping that Penguins will be playing the playoffs and we can have some hockey parties while we are there. I read on their facebook page that they will be showing the games. It's nice to see someone else having a small wedding too!  I think that we have about 16 or 17 people with us. When do you guys arrive and how long are you staying? We are arriving on the 14th and leave the 21st. I wanted 10 days but my fiance wasn't too in to that idea.

                  KitKat,

                   

                  Oh my fiance (and his entire family) love the Penguins... so if they are playing I am sure we will run into each other!!!

                  We are arriving May 11th and staying through the 18th and then we've booked another resort closer to Cancun for our honeymoon and we'll be there for another 7 days.  It was tough to convince my guy to take off of work for two weeks....but its totally worth it.  Most of our friends and family are arriving on the 14th (some flying from Pittsburgh) so you may run into some of them on the plane or in the airport!!!

                   

                  I am *trying* not to bring too much.  :)  Some basic stuff like chair bows, favors, a table runner...stuff thats light weight and can travel easily!  We were thinking of taking a taxi into Playa del Carmen to check out the Walmart and see if we can find anymore decorations/flowers, etc.  What are you bringing down? 

                   

                  I still feel like there is so much to do but I figure once we get down to the resort we can really plan everything.  Still trying to wrap up a few things from here like scheduling a TTD session.  Are you doing one?  We were looking for ideas of places to go.  Didnt really want more pictures at the resort and wasn't thrilled with the cenote idea.  Still looking!   One of the last things Im trying to put together is the ceremony script.  Have you been in contact with your officiant at all?  I am hoping I can just give them the script when we get down there and not have to worry about it again!

                    KitKat,

                           Great to hear that you were able to negotiate your package.  Who is your wedding coordinator?
