OFFICIAL NOW Jade Wedding Thread

Recommended Posts

Hello Brides! I've been using this thread for a few months now and I cannot tell you how much I appreciate everyone's advice and tips. It has helped out so much! I'm traveling to Now Jade this April with my wedding date on 4/19. So I have a few questions that I hope some of you can help me with :)

 

First, I have about 20-25 guest coming and I am set to have my ceremony on the pergola and the reception in the bamboo room. I'm just concerned that the Bamboo room will be too big for the number of guests I have... I don't want it to feel empty with everyone in there! Anybody who was been there have a suggestion on this location or another room?

 

Also, I am wanting to get an excursion together for our guests. We would really like to do a catamaran and snorkeling excursion. Anyone have a suggestion on local companies that they like to use for excursions?

 

Thank you ladies!

From Pilar regarding vendor fees if anyone is interested. 

 

The outside vendor fee is $350, ( florist,  band,  decoration company, live music) but this doesn't apply to photographers as they are not categorized as vendors. Your photographer(s) will be required to pay a $65 per person for a wedding day pass. We request  the name and time that  the couple  come to the resort

Megan-

 

We are also doing the Pergola and Bamboo room and think we will have 25 people. I am also curious to see what everyones thoughts are.

 

We are also thinking of doing a Catamaran. I read somewhere that it cost about 1000-1200 for 30 people. If you find anything out, I would love to know more.

 

Thanks!

 

Marta

Ours were round. One of our guests sent me this photo of what the settings looked like:

Does anyone know if there are any cool bars at the resort for after the wedding and dinner? I'm thinking we will have ~20 guests, which may not be enough to enjoy a typical dance/DJ. Looking for a good place to take the guests the night of the wedding for some dancing and good music.  

 

the moments bar is great, it overlooks the beach so you get the whole beachy vibe. The bartenders are also pretty nice and will let you play your Ipod if you ask. Def the best spot there. We stayed at the jade last fall and are getting married there in sept. Thank god ive been there, makes planning that much easier!
