    Also in the information section of this thread (under photography) it says:

    You can possibly buy the CD with all the pictures (unedited?) for an additional $350   (I'm assuming this is based on what a previous bride was able to do.)

      Totally agree with you Kerri! I recently got married at the now jade and went with my own photographer and it was so worth it!

        To all recent Brides or those who have inquired: Are the Bride and Groom included in the 25 guest list count? Shannonmarie asked this question a week or two ago and I’ve been really curious as to what the accurate answer is. I would ask Pilar, but since we’re in the midst of peak wedding season, I just assumed that I would probably get a quicker response here on BDW. Thanks

                  Thanks for taking the time to write such a thorough review. Your photos are phenomal and congrats to you and your groom! I do have a couple of questions whenever you get a moment: Did you have the resorts officiant marry you? if so what did you and your guest think of his/her accent, was it thick and hard to understand? What are your suggestions/tips for safely traveling with glass vases and avoiding items from breaking i.e. bubble wrap, hardcase luggage...? Thanks

                      Your welcome! Yes, the resort picked the officiant.  I don't remember her name but she was really good. I was also worried about not being able to understand her but she spoke pretty well even with her accent she was very clear.  She did a good job and said really nice words. She read some kind of poem as well it was kind of giving advice. Not sure if they all have a different way of doing things.

                       

                      I didn't want to risk putting the vases under the plane because I know how much they get tossed so I made each person bring on a carry on.  I didn't really need to wrap them up because they didn't leave my sight and we were just careful handling them.  Everything else I wasn't too worried about but I had collected bubble wrap and packaging materials for a while and wrapped some things with them.  Everything ended up making it there safe except on little message in a bottle.
