Overall, I thought they did a nice job and worked well with our outside photographer.

I could see the video no problem! It's actually nicer that I thought it would be, thanks for sharing! Looks like a beautiful day!

 

Our fiancés will totally going to look the same - grey pants/vest, white shirt, purple tie!

My fiancé is a pain about his wardrobe!! He tells me he doesn't care what he wears, but then I suggest something he has a complaint or doesn't want to wear it. We're not having bridal party and he thinks that is a good reason for him to not wear a linen suit or even a vest. And he wants to wear shorts! No. Lol

I know I should stay off of tripadvisor, but the most recent reviews have me terrified about having my wedding at Now Jade. Some of the pictures that have been posted make the resort look flithy! Dishes in the hallway rummaged by raccoons, moldy bedding on chairs by the pool, filty bathrooms. For the price that Apple Vacations is quoting to my guests, I will be mortified if it is truly this way. The pictures are really hard to dispute though.

 

The most recent review said the bride and grooms ceiling and balcony collapsed????

 

I have read nothing but positive things on this forum, but like I said, hard to deny the pictures. 

Any honest feedback would be great! 

Thanks,


Marta (Panicked Bride)


We got back from our wedding trip a week ago and I can ensure you that there is nothing to worry about.  There might be little things but in the big picture they are nothing.  We had no bad experiences at all.  Just go there with an open mind and have fun!

We got back from our wedding trip a week ago.  We traveled to the resort from 11/17/13 to 11/24/13.  Our wedding was on Friday 11/22/13.  All we can say is that everything was just perfect.  Isela (our wedding planner) was on top of everything and the entire trip and wedding could not have gone any better.  We were in contact with her early and often and that made it so easy once we arrived.  The resort is amazing and the grounds are beautiful.  We did the Eternity package because we wanted to customize things.  The other packages did not seem to allow that as much plus the costs could have added up quickly if we were paying for each extra person over 25.  We ended up with 32 total guests (counting us).  Our ceremony was at the Pergola at 11AM.  We then took tons of photos, grabbed a quick lunch, then even hit up the pool for a little, were most of our guests cooled off in the afternoon.  We then had cocktails/appetizers in the Lobby from 4:30-5:30.  Next we went to Capers for dinner (6pm-8pm).  They gave us 2 large tables of 16 people each.  It worked out very well.  We wrapped up dinner and cake a little before 8pm.  We then were supposed to head to the Carnival Terrace for our party/reception but due to a little afternoon rain Isela suggested/asked if we would move the party/reception to Castaways (she asked this during the cocktail hour).  We said that was fine because we did not want to get wet if it rained anymore, which it did.  Castaways was nice because it was a lot more private and it is a big space.  We hired the resort DJ and we were happy with them.  They played most of the songs we sent them ahead of time.  We had to tell them when we want "things" to happen like the bouquet toss and garter toss, but it was no big deal.  The DJ played great music overall.  The party/reception was very important to us and our guests and everyone had a blast.  We then had 3 hours of solid dancing (8pm-11pm).  It was very hot in castaways, but since it was a last minute switch into this area, we did not have the option to get fans brought in.  The space was nice though, especially because of the large bar in castaways. 

 

Here are a few pics from our day.  We were lucky enough to have a family member along that did all of the photography for us.  He did an amazing job.

@AdamShannon Your pictures look great! So adorable!

 

We're getting married November 21, 2014, so we'll be there around the same time that you were. :)  We are also doing the eternity Package, but I wonder, did you bring alot of your own decorations and things down?

We did not do any formal decorations.  We did not want to have to worry about traveling with them and such.  We already had one extra suitcase with out OOT bags, program fans and stuff and lots other wedding stuff in our carry-on's.  To be honest you will not know if the decorations are even there or not.  Since the location and atmosphere are so great, the decorations can get lost in the environment.  In looking back, I'm glad we didn't waste the money on decorations.  Also, since the tables and place settings are so decorative at all of the restaurants, there doesn't seem to be the need to add more, in my opinion.  The only decoration type item that we paid for was bows on the chairs at the ceremony and the white wrap on the pergola and white chair covers.  The colored bows added a lot, which we liked.

 

Let us know if you have any more questions.

Has anyone done the "Hydrotherapy Circuit" at NJ? What's it like?
I stayed at the Jade last September, and am getting married there next September! We did the Hydrotherapy and it's definately worth it. I've never done the HT before, but it was the sauna, steamroom and whirlpool.. It's was definately relaxing and nice that the spa wasn't packed with people..

@@AdamShannon that is good to know. I think we're going to bring down our own chair sashes, possible a few table runners and minimal decoration. We'll also be flying with our 18 month old though, so depending on how full luggage starts to get we might have to readjust! We'll only have 25 at the most and I'm just concerned it will look empty if we don't do something a little extra. I go back and forth. I haven't been in touch with anyone from the resort though so I'm not 100% sure what the rooms look like or their sizes.

    • 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?
