That's a good deal. By transfers do you mean transportation from the airport to the resort?

Yup - I know jade includes transfers for the bride and groom but this way we all get to go to the resort together (and guests don't have another detail to worry about).

A lot of my guests are thinking that it's too early for deposits but I really want to secure the rooms. It makes me feel better to know that other brides were that early too. I just don't want to wait too long and risk the rooms being fully booked. 

We had the divine package and the flower medallions were free, and the ceremony table just had one of the centerpieces from the reception so that wasn't additional cost either.

I contacted a few external vendors and decided to go with Marvin.   I sent them a picture of what I had in mind and they each quoted me their prices. Since they were higher than I anticipated, they worked with me to adjust the types of flowers (using less expensive ones) to help meet my budget.  Marvin was the most competitive as far as pricing and I just fell in love with the centerpiece that he arranged for my wedding.   Great customer service! Feel free to contact any of them.

Its through the airline (Air Transat) but my TA said it will likely be Nolitours (which is a subsidiary of Air Transat). We didn't book it - our TA took care of everything in our package price.  Sorry that probably isn't very helpful :)

Thank you, I got a few quotes from Alina & Vanessa already. I will try Marvin and see what he quotes me. Have a lot of past brides used him? There aren't a lot of reviews in the vendor reviews sextion for flowers.

That's good news! I had no idea that the medallions were included in the divine package. That saves me a ton. Thanks for the FYI!

I am pretty sure that is the case. My Travel Agent who has a long standing relationship with Pilar and NOW jade told me that it is 3 days for symbolic and 4 days otherwise. However, if you have everything covered with Pilar, then I'm sure she would tell you if there was an issue.
