OFFICIAL NOW Jade Wedding Thread

Recommended Posts

I'm hoping for not a HUGHE group as well! It gets rather pricy! I know it's $53 pp extra for dinner, but I have decided not to do extra for cocktail hour... I've hear there should be enough food/drinks... We are canceling our dessert for dinner for 2 more o'dourves since its not needed since we will have the wedding cake, I hope that helps a little. What are your thoughts? Are u adding extra? $53 pp for dinner is pricy enough! Oh, I will be adding champagne at the end of the ceremony for $4 pp. Another thing, does anyone know if the package used to offer a complimentary room for the groom the night before the wedding? I thought I saw it in the past but it may have been a Dreams resort I'm thinking of.
I meant HUGE! Lol! Trying to type on my phone. Please excuse my errors..Sorry ladies! :)

Hey Ladies,

 

I may have misunderstood a message Pilar sent to me... From what she said  I understood the ceremony, cocktail hour and 3 hour of reception was included in the divine wedding package. However it does also say over 3 hours of reception coverage it's $15per person and then below that it say the dj is $250 an hour. I am so confused!! I've asked Pilar to clarify the information... I'll keep you posted:) Sorry for the confusion.

I asked {ilar about the complimentary room for the Groom and they do not offer it frown.gif My FI will proably stay in onw of his guys rooms and I'll stay in ours.

 

We also have close to 80 guests so we saved $$ by cancelling cocktail hour and trading for extra dinners. We didn't upgrade the cake since dessert was included with dinner package. Would still like the champaign but I was thinking of doing a signature drink at reception maybe instead?

I was wondering if any past brides were still on here who could comment on their menu choices. We are looking at smoked salmon appie, lobster bisque, choice of beef/shrimp or tuna steak with Cajun, and creme brûlée. Any comments on any of those ? Please let me know. Thanks.

I know how stressfull it is to organize a group of that size! Only a few more months. We actually are not having the cocktail hour, so since we are paying for a private bar at the reception I hope they will have no problem making signature drinks for people. The ones I chose have pretty basic ingerdients so hopefully that will not be a problem..

 Hi Ladies,

After reading everyone's input regarding different pricing, I am very confused! Does anyone have an invoice you wouldn't mind sharing with me so I could get a better feel for what things actually cost and start to better plan my budget? Also, we have a few guests who do not want to stay at Now Jade. Does anyone know what the day pass fee is for the wedding day and is this the same for any other days they might want to visit the resort?

 

Thanks!

Lauren

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
