OFFICIAL NOW Jade Wedding Thread

Recommended Posts

Less than 6 months to go! AHH!! Does anyone have any pics or comments on the resorts hair/makeup? I think i'm going to send them an email them for info..

 

I used the now jade spa for both hair and makeup for myself and my bridesmaids. I definately recommend bringing pictures of what you want, and if you can swing it a trial might be helpful. If not, I recommend leaving some extra time on your wedding day in case you want to make any adjustments. 

 

For my hair, she was right on with what I showed her in a few pictures. My makeup, not so much. During my trial I didnt bring pics of what I wanted and I said "just do a smokey eye". Well, their version of a smokey eye and my version are very different! Even though I'm really good at makeup, I didnt want to have to do it on my wedding day, so I decided to take my chances again. On my wedding day I brought pictures and she did exactly what I wanted  :)

 

If you're used to using higher end products (HD foundation etc) I recommend bring those as well.. Hope this helps. theres some pics of my hair in my Now Jade gallery under my profile

Has anyone had rectangular tables in the bamboo room for their reception? How many do they seat? Just thought they might look a little different and I like that!! Any thoughts?

For those who had fire dancers... Did you book that through the wedding coordinator or did you hire some off site? How much was it? Is it really worth it? I'm looking to end my wedding night with a bang so i really want something fun that people will remember.

Fireworks could be used to end your night with a bang ;)

Does anyone have a document or template with lists of things to do for their guests?  I just emailed my travel agent about the NJ schedule of activities, but it would be nice to get some ideas from brides here.

I wanted to let everyone know that new prices are out for the Eternity ($2799) and Devine ($3299) packages. They went up $300 for 2015 and 2016 weddings that haven't paid a deposit yet. We were one day too late :(

 

Oh well, what can you do.

Ahh thank you so much! Where's everyone getting there linens? I think I'm just going to do a table runner, but I'm undecided!

I saw someone post on here awhile ago an online store to be linens for a very reasonable price but I can't seem to find it. If anyone has places they have used please share. Thanks!

If you have long hair and want an updo, make sure they use elastics to hold it up if possible!!! The girl only used bobby pins on mine and within hours it was falling out and a mess. but it looked great right when it was first done! i would change that forsure if i could relive the day again.

We used round tables that seated 8-10 people and purchased our runners of ebay (seller vlovelife - we bought 10 Sheer Organza Table Runners 12" x 108")

    • 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
