@@kylie537 I'm having my reception at Castaways, and while we'll be having closer to 50 people, I feel that the way the space is broken up, it won't seem big.  I've been there in person (not sure if you have or not), so I think pictures might make it look bigger than it actually is.  I think you'll be fine!

so i just learned that to extend the reception for an extra hour (from 3 hours to 4 hours) you have to pay $15 per person plus tax and service.  Yikes!  We are planning for ceremony at 5, cocktail hour at 6 and reception from 7-10pm.  I was thinking of extending to 11pm, because 10pm just seems too early, but I'm not so sure if the extra hour is worth the extra cost.  What have other done or are planning?

Hello,

 

Has anyone been charged a $350 set up fee to have your own bar during the reception?  I received my contract today and there was this fee - I have never heard of this before, nor was it on any of my paperwork.

 

For those that have already had their reception, particularly in the Bamboo Room - did you have your own bar for the reception?  Or did you just have waiters running drinks to your guests from an outside bar?  If so, were there any complaints that people could not get drinks timely?

 

Thanks in advance!!

Instead of extending the reception we just had a longer cocktail hour then all went to the disco after.

 

As for the second bar, we just had the waiters bring us drinks. We had plenty to drink. They had our signature drink and a glass of champagne out at every spot when we got there for no extra charge.

We didn't pay for an extra bar either. We had our reception at the pool though so there was a bar right there...

Hello again - one more question.

 

On my contract - the resort is charging to physically move our chairs from the ceremony (pergola) to the reception (Bamboo) room ($40+tax).  They are also charging fees for tying on our chair bows ($40+tax) and for "decorating" our tables at the reception ($40+tax).

 

To any recent Now Jade brides - were you charged for all/any of this?

Do any brides have the most current pricing for the spa?  Trying to figure out the cost of an up-do for my bridesmaids.  I saw a post on this thread for 2013 that said it was $59 for long hair, but since their prices are ever-increasing I'm assuming it's gone up by then.

    • 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!
