    I wouldn't worry about paying extra for a bartender. The waiters always made sure that our drinks were full and they kept them coming all night long! I highly recommend getting a DJ so you don't have to worry about making sure the music is playing all night. I also used the resort's DJ.

      What resort did you guys choose for your honeymoon?  We are moving over to the new Paradisus La Perla, I wonder how far from the Jade it is!?

       

      The flower medallions on the pergola- can those be used as decor at the reception, or do they look funny laying down?

       

      Your pic looks exactly how I envision mine, less the purple!  Congratulations! :)))

      We went to the Valentin imperial afterword for our honeymoon. My Husband and I went their together a few years ago on vaccation and fell in love. I was originally planning to do the wedding there but the guest price was over 2000 per person which was too much for me. After seeing both I am so glad we did the Jade for the wedding! That resort is so much better for a group. The Valentin was only about 15 minutes from the Now Jade.

       

      The flower medallions were put onto the cake table (I didnt ask for them to do it) but I thought it looked cute. See above picture the medallions are next to our sandframe.

       

      We used the DJ and were only supposed to have him for the reception portion but he actually was there the whole time without charging for dinner. If you are using the Bamboo Room I think private bar is necessary especially if your group likes to drink. The nearest bar is the outdoor mix bar and their service might not be super fast if you have a larger group. We had 75 total.

          Hi Ladies,

           

          I'm looking for entertainment during the reception and wondernig if anyone has any leads or contacts. I have Mariachi for the cocktail hour, but I'd like something different like dancers for the reception.  I've heard of these drummers that play on glo light drums with water, but I can't find their contact info. anywhere in Riviera Maya.  If anyone has any leads, please let me know!  Much appreciated.

           

          Caroline

              don't worry, they don't look  funny at all. Using flower medallions as centerpieces it's a perfect idea for maximize you flower decor

              I was thinking the same thing khunt29!

              It would be such a shame not making use of those flowers after the ceremony, but I was worried they might look silly laying down too.

                The DJ just used his sounds system to play our music for the Dinner and we never had to pay anything extra for it!!!

                Polar quoted a cost of $150 just to have a podium/mic in the bamboo room....did this apply to you, or had you heard anything about that?

                  Hey ladies,    I just returned and will try and write a complete review this weekend! Everything at the resort was beautiful and everything I had dreamed of. Pilar and Daisy work so hard to make everything flawless, so try not to stress. Just a few things that people have asked about: paper lanterns I brought about 30 with no lights or hanging supplies and was not charges to set up and they looked gorgeous! (see pic) we had brought down our own chairs sashes (80) and they tied them and set up for no additional charge. The flowers at the pergola were also added at no charge & they used centerpieces from the reception as decor for the isle at the cermony. After all our guests left the resort drove my HUSBAND and I to our honeymoon resort in one of their private SUV's and it was perfectly safe. For dinner we glued colored flowers on the escort cards to determine the menu choices(turquoise for beef and purple for salmon, veggie was no sticker) and I also gave Pilar a list of each guest. If you ladies have any q's please let me know but I will do a full review this weekend...

                  Chantal, if you are interested in selling some of your chair sashes, I'd be interested in 42 of them, or if you want to round it up to 50 or something, I'd definitely be ok with that, since 42 is an awkward # :). If so, maybe we can talk :)
