    10 was a little crowded,but it definitely works! (You might want to consider how large your guests are!) Here's a pic from our wedding last August at the Jade. This might give you a better idea.

      I purchased the lights for the inside of the lanterns but ended up not using them. They didn't light up like I thought they would...I actually thought they looked silly with the lights. I think you are fine to not buy them!

      Hi Now Jade Brides!

      I am super happy to say that we finally have our date confirmed at Now Jade! We are getting married January 16, 2014!

      We are planning a beach ceremony and will have a dinner reception at Castaway! I am so glad to see other brides are inquiring about the Castaway restaurant because I haven't been able to find much out about it. We have it from 7pm-10pm which doesn't seem like enough time.. I send Pilar and email and hope that this can be extended. Is there a limit on how many tables/chairs will be set up? Will anything over 25 be additional charge in terms of tables and chairs? Are the chairs regular chairs or do they come with white chair covers?

       

      I will be bringing my own music and was wondering if other brides have done this? How did you find the sound system/speakers that you can rent? Did you go for the big sound system? Or the regular one? Do they have a cd player set up or should I be bringing a MP3 player docking station?

       

      Thanks!!!

      Congrats! I agree, 3 hours does seem short, especially when it includes a sit down dinner. You have an option to extend it to 11pm (an extra hour) for $15 per person. If you have the divine or eternity package it includes up to 25 people. Anything over is extra, depending on your package. Either $48 or $53 for dinner, plus extra for other options as well. All this can be found on the wedding guide on the Now Jade website, also, I'm not sure if you have read this entire thread (it's alot to read, but worth it!) but the 1st page has tons of info as well as pictures of Castaways. The chairs come with white covers and you can get colored chair ties for $5 each. You can find them online for under a dollar which is what I'll be doing.

       

      I cannot comment on the sound of the speakers but I will be using the sound system for the ceremony. I asked Pilar whether they preferred an iPod or CD and she said iPod. I'll be bringing a list of instructions on when to play each song. We will be using the resort DJ for the reception.

        Thanks Kristen! Since I gave up on finding that sash I found one on etsy that I loved and now I'm torn between the two!

          Thank you Shannon! It's hard to say at this point how many guests we will have. We are sending out quite a few invites but I know for a fact half won't be able to attend. That being said based on a head count it could be anywhere between 40-60 guests.. I am kinda hoping it will be more like 40. We went with the Eternity package which looks like will be an additional $48 per person. I don't think we are going to have the Cocktail Hour because our additional costs would be too high. Plus most of our guests will most likely go back to their room or have a few drinks on the beach or bar after the ceremony.

           

          I understood there is a club/ "disco" at the resort. Is that true? First I read somewhere about the mix and then elsewhere I read that the sports bar at the resort has a DJ come in during the late hours. Is this true? Is this only on certain days? Where can we take our late night guests that want to keep dancing? Any suggestions?

           

          So the DJ will be at the Castaway during your dinner and reception? Thaniks for recommendation looks like Ipod it is! Are you bringing a docking station or do they have that available at the resort?

            Hi Ladies!!

             

            Does anyone have any recommendations for photography?? Del Sol was WAY too expensive for my fiance and I and we have a friend who is an amazing photographer who we thought we could fly down but now due to work he may not be able to make it. Any suggestions would be helpful??

             

            Thanks!

              I liked LaLuna but they are crazy expensive also. Which photography is part of the hotel?
