OFFICIAL NOW Jade Wedding Thread

Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard from Pilar lately? I have emailed several times over the past 3 weeks and haven't gotten any responses. Is there someone else I should be emailing? Maybe some of you ladies and answer some of my questions!

1. Do we need to reserve the DJ now?  We would like a DJ for the bamboo reception.  Are there different DJs to chose from or does the resort only have one?
 
2. For the photography, I know the divine package does include a photographer. We do want to add on to the included package.  Do we need to contact Adventure photos ourselves to reserve them for the day? Do we contact them to book the trash the dress shoot?
 
3. For the symbolic ceremony, is there a general script that is followed or do we need to write our own? Can you please email me a copy of the script if there is one?
 
4. What time and where will our welcome cocktail be at on February 7th? (save the date promotion) And do we get to pick the appetizers?
 
6. Is there an added fee for a "signature drink" during the cocktail hour?
 
7. When is the appropriate time to book spa services? Do we go through you or through the resport?
 
8. Are we allowed to have real candles for the centerpieces at the resort?
 
9. Can we borrow hurricane vases for the centerpieces? Is there a charge?

 

 

Thanks everyone- This thread has been wonderful!

Hi.  I will answer your questions the best I can.  I am getting married in October so this is all that I know just from asking questions...

 

Pilar is out on medical leave.  However, you can e-mail Deisy, who is next in charge.  Normal exchange rate of emails is 3-4 weeks though.

 

We are using the in house DJ.  I asked Deisy to set it up and she had the DJ email me.  We set it up about 3 months before our wedding.  I just submitted our DJ planning form a few minutes ago and we are exactly 1 month from our wedding.

 

If you let Deisy know, she will set you up with Adventure Photography.  We requested Veronica since I heard she is the best.  We also upgraded to full day, which includes getting ready, ceremony, cocktail hour, and whole reception.  It was $1000 upgrade.  But there is also another upgrade that is $1600 I think and that includes trash the dress and a rehearsal dinner I believe.

 

We are doing a symbolic ceremony too and are using our own script.  My brother is officiating and he is starting it.  You can make it say whatever you want.

 

You can go over with Deisy about your Welcome Party.  I have no details on this.

 

There is no signature drink fee for either cocktail hour or reception.

 

For the spa, I booked all of mine about 2 months in advance.  There are only like 4 people that work in the spa, so I wanted to make sure that we got the times we wanted since there are about 9 of us getting hair done.  I asked Deisy and she also told the spa to email me, which they did.

 

Yes, you are allowed to have real candles in your centerpieces.  But, I would just check and make sure if they need to be in a vase or not.

 

You can borrow vases, but I have heard they run you about $25 EACH!  We are bringing 18 cylinder vases and paid $80 for all of of them online and are just wrapping them in bubble wrap and having each set of parents bring a set, plus we will bring a set to show Deisy how we want them set up in our meeting!

 

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

Hey all, I've booked the Devine wedding package which comes with the hour of live music. (Guitar or sax) If I chose to use the guitar player for the cocktail hour instead of during the ceremony, do you know if there will be speakers set up at the ceremony (im booked for the pergola) to play any music I'd like played during the entrances or is that going to be an extra fee to have speakers??

i think you will have to pay for a sound system 165 usd.  We have just upgraded to the Devine package from the moments package too.  I will have them play at the ceremony and hired a sound system to play my ipod at the reception.

Hello, 

Pilar is back working (at least partially). I received an email from her last week after waiting over 2 months. I would suggest emailing all of the wedding email addresses at the resort when you have a question so that you will get a quicker response. The emails are: weddings.nowrc@nowresorts.com (Pilar), weddings.nojrc@nowresorts.com (Pilar), weddings1.nojrc@nowresorts.com (Deisy), weddings2.nojrc@nowresorts.com (?).   1. The DJ at Now Jade is AVI. I can send you their planning form if you message me your email. Alex is the contact and his email is: Alejandro.Salmeron@avispl.com. Deisy or Pilar will book the time for you if you go through them.  

2. You can email Frederico at Adventure photos (njrcphoto@adventurephotosmexico.com). He will be able to give you more information about pricing and what services are available.

 

3. For the symbolic ceremony there is a basic script they will follow. You can customize this however you want or write your own. I have examples of the ceremony. If you want me to email them to you let me know.

 

4. We didn't get a free welcome party :( so I'm not sure about the details on this. I would contact Deisy to confirm.

 

7. You should book your spa services 1-2 months before. You can contact the spa directly at spa1.nojrc@nowresorts.com (Fredy Lugo). If you would like a price list let me know.

 

Hope this helps. If you need any more info let me know I can email you all the documents I have received from Pilar or attach them on here whichever is easier for you.

Trisha

We are moving ours to the cocktail hour as well. I think the Divine package includes the system at the ceremony as well (from what I can tell with the planning form). I am sending in my planning form in a few days so I will let you know if I am wrong about this.

To all past brides or brides-to-be who have visited Now Jade, What is the best cake flavour?

I am supposed to say which I want on the planning form but can't decide because they all sound delicious.

    • 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?
