I wouldn't worry about paying extra for a bartender. The waiters always made sure that our drinks were full and they kept them coming all night long! I highly recommend getting a DJ so you don't have to worry about making sure the music is playing all night. I also used the resort's DJ.

Your pic looks exactly how I envision mine, less the purple!  Congratulations! :)))

We went to the Valentin imperial afterword for our honeymoon. My Husband and I went their together a few years ago on vaccation and fell in love. I was originally planning to do the wedding there but the guest price was over 2000 per person which was too much for me. After seeing both I am so glad we did the Jade for the wedding! That resort is so much better for a group. The Valentin was only about 15 minutes from the Now Jade.

 

The flower medallions were put onto the cake table (I didnt ask for them to do it) but I thought it looked cute. See above picture the medallions are next to our sandframe.

 

We used the DJ and were only supposed to have him for the reception portion but he actually was there the whole time without charging for dinner. If you are using the Bamboo Room I think private bar is necessary especially if your group likes to drink. The nearest bar is the outdoor mix bar and their service might not be super fast if you have a larger group. We had 75 total.

Hi Ladies,

 

I'm looking for entertainment during the reception and wondernig if anyone has any leads or contacts. I have Mariachi for the cocktail hour, but I'd like something different like dancers for the reception.  I've heard of these drummers that play on glo light drums with water, but I can't find their contact info. anywhere in Riviera Maya.  If anyone has any leads, please let me know!  Much appreciated.

don't worry, they don't look  funny at all. Using flower medallions as centerpieces it's a perfect idea for maximize you flower decor

I was thinking the same thing khunt29!

It would be such a shame not making use of those flowers after the ceremony, but I was worried they might look silly laying down too.

The DJ just used his sounds system to play our music for the Dinner and we never had to pay anything extra for it!!!
Polar quoted a cost of $150 just to have a podium/mic in the bamboo room....did this apply to you, or had you heard anything about that?

Hey ladies,    I just returned and will try and write a complete review this weekend! Everything at the resort was beautiful and everything I had dreamed of. Pilar and Daisy work so hard to make everything flawless, so try not to stress. Just a few things that people have asked about: paper lanterns I brought about 30 with no lights or hanging supplies and was not charges to set up and they looked gorgeous! (see pic) LL we had brought down our own chairs sashes (80) and they tied them and set up for no additional charge. The flowers at the pergola were also added at no charge & they used centerpieces from the reception as decor for the isle at the cermony. After all our guests left the resort drove my HUSBAND and I to our honeymoon resort in one of their private SUV's and it was perfectly safe. For dinner we glued colored flowers on the escort cards to determine the menu choices(turquoise for beef and purple for salmon, veggie was no sticker) and I also gave Pilar a list of each guest. If you ladies have any q's please let me know but I will do a full review this weekend...
Chantal, if you are interested in selling some of your chair sashes, I'd be interested in 42 of them, or if you want to round it up to 50 or something, I'd definitely be ok with that, since 42 is an awkward # :). If so, maybe we can talk :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
