I got some great responses from Pilar by numbering my questions. Also if you ask one small uncomplicated question for each number it helps. I noticed the questions that were more complicated or that had more than one part didn't get answered as well. Hope that helps a little with the communication.

 

Also to everyone, I know the Trip Advisor reviews haven't been great lately but if you want a little reassurance the Monarc.ca (Canadian review site) reviews have still been pretty consistent (only one or two not so good). The link is here: http://www.monarc.ca/hotel-reviews/Mexico/Riviera_Maya/hotel-9267-Now_Jade_Riviera.html#.UYAqXJXqJNU

Thank you for this, I have had a look at the review and it is much better than tripadvisor of late......I have come to the conclusion that some people cant help themselves and just like to omplain about everything.

 

Either way it is too late now as we have chosen this resort and it is what you make it :-)

Hi gals,

 

Does anyone have any pics of the orange lounge besides what is on the website??

 

Thanks   :o)

 

Our cocktail hour will be in the orange lounge. I've seen a few photos of the space, but only have saved a few on my computer. The first photo I randomly found on a google images search, but am guessing it's of a cocktail hour. Guessing that they add high tables that are covered in a white cloth for everyone.

 

I believe that it overlooks the area by the fountain in one of the courtyards.

I can't figure out how to link them specifically, but on this page there's NJ videos for Kevin + Shannon and David + Kristy.

This was great! I love the videos because you can see a little bit more of what the resort is like :)

I strongly recommend Lori as well! She was very detail-oriented, had scouted out the locations of our TTD session to maximize our time and has amazing photos. I can't say enough good things about Lori! www.sweetfirephotography.com

 

We arrived home safe and sound last week, but I'm just so burnt out with wedding stuff that I haven't had the desire to write up my review yet, but I promise, it's coming!

Hi Ladies,

 

We just got back from the resort and I just wanted you to know that this orange lounge is nice and it overlooks the fountain area.  However, the downside is that is is literally right outside the coffee shop and entrance to the buffet (the only entrances to these places).  So you might find you will have a lot of people roaming through or right beside your cocktail hour.  It could be a nice place to have a welcome party though.  It's very central. I saw someone use it for a cocktail hour while we were there, and they did rope it off, but many people still have to walk by to get to the buffet and coffee shop.

Hi previous Now Jade Brides,

 

We are looking to have our family member DJ the wedding.  We will most likely rent the speakers with the microphone.  Does anyone know if it comes with one speaker or two?  Do you need 2 speakers?  Also, do you recommend renting the lighting for $350 for the Bamboo room?  Is it disco type lighting or up lighting?

 

Thanks so much!  Appreciate your time.

I'm trying to book a wedding date for February 2014 with Pilar.  How long did it take to hear back from her the first time you contacted her?  I'd like to get a date secured before it get's all booked up!!  What you wrote is frustrating but I keep hearing that everything will always workout in the end, but still frustrating!! undecided.gif

    • 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?
