    There is but I believe you need at least 50 guests in your group.

      Thank you for such a quick response! I don't think I'll make that cut but it's okay! Right now I have the Eternity Package, but I may upgrade to the Divine for the food choices, they just seem a little better!

      Thanks again! :)


      62 guest booked, plus Bride and Groom!

        We are hoping to get to 50 but if not we will also go with the Devine meal...I am not a fan of fish and the whole menu for Eternity is fish...Devine has a meal option!!!

          Thank you! I called Pilar after I read your post and her assistant said she would pass the message and by the next morning all the documents I needed was emailed to me. I've emailed Pilar again but I was wondering if maybe you can answer my questions.

          1. I've filed out the forms provided but my fianc©e and I don’t have our flight and arrival time yet, do we need to book our a flight and room before sending in the forms (wedding date reservation and credit card form)?

          2. I’m getting the Divine wedding package, I understand it covers the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception (dinner) but does that include the party portion ( dance floor, DJ, etc…)?

          3. Is there group rates since I will have a large group that will be staying at the hotel?

            I'll do my best to answer your questions :)

             

            I did not have our flight info yet either so I simply put TBD/unknown at this time but listed who we booked through (airline) and that was fine with Pilar.  Closer to the wedding (ie 60 days out or so) you send in more detailed information including number of guests, date of arrival etc so no worries for now.

             

            As for the reception items - those are not included in the package but you can purchase them from the additonal or ala carte services listed in the wedding package book that Pilar would have included in your email.  I have also read that some brides have been able to switch out the 45 min instrument music for DJ services...that would be something you can negotiate with Pilar directly.  The decor items included in the package (chair covers, centerpiece on judge's table etc) will be moved over to the reception area too.

             

            As for group rates -- I had my TA negotiate that as part of our 7 days AI through Air Transat so I can't speak to what the hotel can offer if you wish to book rooms directly with them. 

             

            Hope this helped!!

              Download the wedding guide off of the Now Jade website under the weddings section. It has all the prices there. The divine package only includes 25 people for cocktail/reception so each additional person you will have to pay extra for (prices are in that wedding guide). None of the packages include the DJ so that will be extra based on the amount of time you will need. Your bouquet, one centerpiece, 2 corsages and 2 boutonnieres are included in your package  but any other flowers/decor is additional. Hope this helps!

                Hey ladies!! I just got back from our wedding at Now Jade and it was fantastic. Be patient with Pilar...her and her assistants work at least 10-12 hours a day every day!!! I don't know how they do it. They have meetings all morning and then get the weddings ready for the afternoon. They have to find time in there to answer all the emails that they receive. Let me know if anyone has any questions! :)

                    I didn't have any issues with customs. I didn't take a whole bunch with me though. I had table runners, drink koozies, door hangers, some signs, and that was about it. I relied on the resort for everything else. I am still catching up at work but once I have a moment I will write my review. Overall I was pleased with everything and I was very impressed with the resort. They did lose the hanger that I bought for my dress for pictures but other than that I didn't have any issues (and that was very minor anyways!) Don't stress - everything will turn out great!
