OFFICIAL NOW Jade Wedding Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi NOW Jade brides! I am attempting to finalize all the details my July 2014 wedding (divine package). I have heard of brides of brides swapping things out. For instance, photography for additional flowers, etc.. Pilar is stating that exchanging things is NOT doable. Anyone else run into this? 

 

They really don't swap out things anymore... in the past years they have

What is everyone picking for their Meals? Having a hard time choosing

 

We chose the capresse salad, the ravioli, steak and shrimp, chicken, and the chocolate souffle.

 

Everything was delicious except for the dessert. If i had to choose again i would pick the creme brule... man that was good!

 

Cakes are not their specialty in mexico.

Hello Ladies!

    I just returned on friday from 12 days in mexico. I was married on friday may 16th at the pergola of now jade then went on to Dreams for my honeymoon . I did not have the same issues as the past 2 brides who were married in may but there were a few little things.. The resort itself is very nice, the food was excellent in the restaurants and the buffet was ehhh just a buffet. For an all inclusive resort i thought the food was very good.

 I had 44 guests and probably 15 of them had some stomach issues. Nothing so bad that they couldnt enjoy themselves completely or anything but had to go to the bathroom quite a few times :unsure:  I honestly would say its due to sooo much fruity drinks you have all day long but obviously i could be wrong. I drank just as much as anyone else there and ate all the food and neither my husband (that sounds weird to say) or myself got sick :)

I didnt have any problems with my room, I paid for an ocean front and got an ocean front. My travel agent told me they upgrade you upon availability and she also explained to me the room block is just to make sure your guests will have an available room, not have you in the same building. I wasnt put in the preferred side of the resort which is way far from the regular building but they did give me the perferred perks which isnt really anything special. I didnt make a big deal to have my room switched to the other side because nobody from our group was on that side so it was just easier for us to all stay close together.

 I requested for my grandparents to be in the same building and as close as possible to my parents and they did have them close together so no complaints there.

We had our ceremony at the pergola, cocktail hr at the mix bar, and reception at the terrace. Everyone said everthing was amazing and beautiful and had a great time! We hired gonzalo nunez for the wedding day and TTD and he was amazing. I will write a full detailed review with pics soon!

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
