Yes I think she credits you less if you bring an outside photographer, which is what I was asking for. She said she would only credit me $150, otherwise I could use their photographer for a trash the dress or rehearsal dinner. I opted to just keep him since my outside photographer will be leaving half way through the reception. I'll probably instruct their photographer to get more photos of the family & friends during cocktail hour and reception since mine will be focusing on FI and I.

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.

THank you soo much for the info!!! DO you have any pics of the set up so I can have an idea of what it looks like. There aren't very many pictures of the terrace set up. We are only having 32 people so I am hoping it isnt took squishy. How many people did you have at each table?? What did you do for your centerpieces? I am having a hard time figuring out tables.... Will they do round instead of rectangle? Do you happen to know how big the rectangle tables are? Sorry for so many questions!

Hi.  This is our first post to this forum.  It has been a great resource so far for us in planning our Now Jade Wedding.

 

To start out, we have booked our wedding date at the Now Jade after a lot of research and thought.  We are on a semi-limited budget but we still wanted to do a destination wedding. It is just important to us to have a great time with our great friends and family in paradise.  We know will make it a good time no matter what. With that being the case we have chosen the Now Jade for our November 2013 wedding with the "Your Moments" wedding package.  Because we are realistically expecting about 50 guests, the Eternity & Devine packages do not seem to be a good fit for us since we would have to pay a lot more to add the additional 25 people (since only 25 are included).  With this being the case, we are going with the "Your Moments" package.  This does not include a formal dinner.

 

We are wondering if anyone has had their wedding at the Now Jade resort but just went with the "Your Moments" wedding package?   We are looking for feedback from people that have also chosen this package and to see if they added any type of dinner or reception or cocktails or dancing, etc.?  We want to offer something to our guests and are looking for some ideas that we maybe are not thinking of.  Currently we are thinking of doing hors d'oeuvres the night before the wedding in the lobby bar area, then the ceremony the next day.  For dinner that night we are going to do a reserved area in the buffet so that our guests have options on food choices.  We are a variety of tastes in our group.  Then we are looking into having dancing on one of the terraces with a DJ.

 

Any tips, input, suggestions, or ideas would be appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Congratulations! :)   I am getting married 11/16/2013.  Happy planning! :)

 

My fiance and I went with the Divine package since we are only expecting 30-40 people, so I can't be of much help there.

Has anyone inquired about bringing an outside DJ or florist? Pilar just emailed me & she said there would be a $350 fee for each to bring them in! Why so much more than the photographer fee? And I also asked her about fake rose petals for the pergola & she said this is fine, does not have to be freeze-dried petals as was mentioned in a previous post.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
