 so did a lot of you ladies do the webinar? I did and i was the one asking all about the bonfire and fire dancers lol i still dont understand since isela kept saying different things! In her presentation it said bonfires, then when i asked about pricing for it she said the goverment doesnt allow them. Then she said from may-october they dont allow activities on the on the beach after 9pm due to turtles? So i asked if i hire the fire dancers for my wedding night and my reception is on the terrace where do they perform? She said on the beach! i dont get it lol can we go on the beach with fire dancers or not! If we can then why cant we have the fire pit? Geez lol

Hey! I paid for the fire dancers for my wedding. I had them perform after my reception ended on the terrace - at 10:00 pm (I added an extra hour onto my reception). They performed from 10:00-10:25pm in the large grassy mall area, and they designated this the garden fountain area. However, my wedding was in February. This was the latest it could go because of the noise ordinance that the events outside need to end by 10:30pm.

 

I think what she probably meant is you cannot have a fire pit on the beach - I don't know if that is allowed on any of the resort owned beaches in Mexico.

 

FYI - I paid for the fire dancers for after the wedding, but half of the resort showed up as they performed; it is not private. The resort also had them scheduled during their weekly night activities for free (I think it was around 8:30pm).

 

Cost: 35 minutes - $950 + tax ; 45 minutes - $1250? + tax AND the price changed 3 times, it was first $850, then $900, and I paid $950.

I attended the webinar also! What Isela meant is that bonfires are NOT allowed at the resort.. Obviously the presentation was old and should've been updated prior to the webinar..But the resorts used to allow bonfires/firepits. The Jade is on a Nature Preserve, they have turtles, and rare birds, etc on the resort so anything that could harm them is prohibited. Also it's their mating season I believe between May and October.. It's confusing, yes. I only know this because I've stayed at the Jade before. Other than the miscommunication about the bonfires, did you find the webinar helpful? I'm glad I was able to attend, I made a whole new list of questions I have to send Isela! Btw, I'm so thankful she's SO organized.. And I'm glad we decided against the Saphire, I sensed that Ramon was all over the place the other day! It was horrible!

The Fire dancers usually perform once a week there, you could ask Isela for an itinerary of daily activities... But I wouldn't recommend adding the firedancers. They're a nice touch but after 15 minutes, it's kind of played out. And I think id rather spend the money on something else, especially if it's not private..

    • Hey guys. New to the forum. I have a question. Need some advice. I booked my wedding through destinationweddings.. booked grand Bahia principe san juan in Puerto plata. Deposited and all that .. hired a photographer who is also a friend who is coming with my group along with his wife as guests.  I tell the resort because I wanted to clarify I dont really need the photographer that is included in my package I'm paying for.. They are now charging me 500 dollars for my photogrphaer / friend to take pictures on my wedding day even though him and his wife are both guests of the hotel for the whole 7 days. Has anyone heard of this before? Any advice how to get out of it I have fought with the resort wedding planner and the travel planner but i havent got anywhere so far.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm already spending 1500$ in extras, 1700 on package and bringing 24 guests for 7 days and me and hubby staying 10 days. I feel like they should not be charging me for this
    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
