OFFICIAL NOW Jade Wedding Thread

Hey Ladies,

so quick question for those of you doing a TTD session, where did you buy your makeup? I purchased mascara and eyeliner from bobby brown but it isnt very "waterproof" . I think i will return it and try something else. I read somewhere that sephora has a good eyeliner that doesnt come off but i need mascara too. Thoughts?

 

Also, whats everyone doing as far as bridal bouquets? I only like a few of the options they offer and our colors are purple and lime green . My wedding coordinator showed me a sample bouquet but i hated it! LOL it was like an ugly purple rose with light pink roses. I want something with bright purple flowers! I love orchids but i know this is way too expensive since they are imported.

Hello girls, 

 

I was wondering if anyone has feedback on the symbolic ceremony's at the Now Jade. I am nervous that the officiant will have a thick accent and that myself and the guests will not be able to understand him/her very well.

 

My thought is having a friend read the ceremony, but the one person that will do it is NOT an officiant or JOP, he is just a nice friend that said he would read it.  That could not be as smooth either, he is gets nervous.

 

Any feedback on the officiants that the Now Jade offers would be great.  Videos so I can see would be the best!

 

Thanks!!

Hey Ladies,

 

So i was quoted for the DJ $350 per hour... so I was planning on hiring the DJ for 3 hours meaning $1,050.00. But as I was looking at the NJ Wedding Guide I saw that it said DJ $1,000 for 4 hours.  Now the 4 hours seems like the better deal... could i use the DJ for the Cocktail hour, which is in the Mix Bar, and then the reception in the Bamboo Room?? Did anyone else get quoted the same?

 

Thanks girls!

Annette

So as far as waterproof make-up... I was just going to purchase anything that said "Waterproof" lol but if you did that already and they were really "waterproof" then I'll probably purchase a couple of things and let you know how it works out.

 

For bridal bouquet I decided to go with one of their options i saw... I actually have the Divine Package but I saw a sample on their guide from the Eternity package that i liked and i was going to order a couple of flowers from afloral.com and add them on. I'm actually making a couple of

boutonnieres for the groomsmen and the bridemaid bouquets using afloral.com. Check them out! :)

which bouquet did you like from the package options? I also liked some but my colors are purple and lime green and the purple option she showed me was roses and a very gloomy looking purple lol not what i expected so im very nervous. I did look at afloral.com but im nervous about them looking really fake and cheesy. What are you colors ? And are you requesting specific flowers or just what the package ones are?

I liked NOWE009 its on the guide under the NOW to Eternity Bouquets. My colors are coral and mint. My plan is to ask for them all in white and just add afloral orchids and lilies in the colors coral.   

 

 

 

And i actually found out about afloral.com on forums here- I was skeptical of how they would look since they are fake but after seeing pictures the ladies on here use them for DIY centerpieces, bouquets, etc.  I was sold; I just ordered a batch so I’ll let post how they feel and look.

My colors were originally coral and mint also, but now it's more pink and mint bc it's impossible to find anything coral on Long Island apparently. I'm having gold accents and also want NOWE009 all white but add a Few pink to accent it... Love the idea of adding fake flowers, cannot wait to see your photos!!

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
