OFFICIAL NOW Jade Wedding Thread

Recommended Posts

We had our reception on the terrace on 2/2/13 (my review is awaiting moderation). We had 53 people at the reception - four rectangular tables. The dancing was definitely tight, but it didn't stop us from having a great time, and I would say almost every one of our guests was dancing at some point. The only real problem is that there is a slight step in the area where we were dancing. Knowing this now, I would still have it in the same spot, or maybe at Castaways, if that's an option.

 

If you don't mind being inside, I thought the Bamboo room was beautiful. I didn't look into any of the other locations because we really wanted to be outside.

Our ceremony is at 5pm and I'm wondering what time to schedule our appointments. I don't want to do it too early b/c I don't want my hair to fall out, but I also don't want to be pressed for time. I'd rather have more time to lounge around and sip on mimoas then to rush around getting ready :)

Our ceremony was at 5:00, and I got my hair and makeup done at 12:30 and then hung out with my bridesmaids while they got theirs done. So, I basically ended up with a half hour to spare before they came to my room at 4:00 to help with my dress. My hair did not fall out, and I was out until 2:00 AM, and it was a slightly windy day. Hope this helps!

Perfect thank you for the info! I keep thinking we should switch our reception location but I was so excited about being outdoors.... I haven't looked into the other locations so I think I should start doing that.

I strongly reccomend getting more photos on CD. With the full 1 day coverage ($999) we had over 900 pictures and it took my husband and I 4 hours to try and narrow down to 250 pictures. We had 100 included and had to pay $1/photo extra that we wanted. It may be a better option to try and get more pictures ahead of time because the last thing you want to do on vaccation is spend 4 hours looking at pics. Also the divine package counts at $300 credit towards adventure photos. The included photo book can only have 80 pictures....

Thanks for the info. That's really good to know that this basically counts as $300 credit because we have the Divine. After seeing the sample videos Federico sent me, I know I don't want to upgrade videography anymore, so now I have to tell him that. Yuck. Not looking forward to that.

I agree! I didn't know that having the divine package counts as $300 towards photos! That's great news. I'm pretty sure I'll be upgrading our photography to either full day ($999) or 3 hours ($799).... Although, I'm not looking forward to narrowing down 900+ photos!

Are the videos of poor quality?

You should look into Castaways. I believe it's half indoor/half outdoor.. Don't quote me. That's where I'm having mine but I'm not exactly sure of the set up :)
