        We arrived at the Now Jade yesterday and so far I have been impressed at the level of service from all the staff. We meet Pilar today to discuss the wedding and hopefully get some clarity on their policies of swapping out services for others. Will keep you posted! Chris

          We didn't use the photographer (included in Divine package) for the wedding day since we booked an external one -- SweetFire Photography from Playa del Carmen, AMAZING work -- but we did use the photography for a TTD two days later so I can give you an idea of what is included. 

           

          We had the photog for approx. 2 hrs (our shoot was around the resort - ocean, pools etc).  Only 1 photographer.

          The upgraded package means you get a hardcover photo book with 24 photos. You select them out of the photos they took, you can add more if you want for a fee ($15 per picture).  There is a discount if you decide to purchase all of the images.

          You get a DVD with the 24 images you selected (hi-res) and a slideshow they put together with all the images.

           

          I love my TTD pictures but I will say I am so happy we opted for an external photographer because the resort photographers simply don't have the same creative spirit or attention to detail a professional does.  For example in a few of my TTD photos you can see the ribbon that you hang the dress by poking out the side of my strapless dress - the photographer didn't notice to say anything, nor was it edited away during touch ups.  In general there seems to be very little photo editing done by resort photographers (probably due to time constraints). 

           

          Here is a link to the TTD photo slideshow they put together for us http://11-02-13graha...rephotos.com.mx

            Awesome review, thank you! It's always reassuring to hear how well the weddings go. I'm glad you really liked the food too, and those were good tips for the sports lounge and kids.

             

            Our reception is scheduled from 6-9, I think we'll extend it by an hour, but still ending it at 10 seems kind of early! I guess the adults could all go to the sports bar afterwards though?

              wow that sucks! I wonder if you pay a charge theyll let the guests just pick once they arrive.. How do you include that on your invite?  I guess maybe on the RSVP card you add that information?

                so exciting!!!! Good luck with everything! Quick question .. is there much nightlife at the resort or you need to go off the resort for nightly fun (bars/partying)? I know cancun has a bunch of places to go but not to sure how far now jade is from the cancun strip. thanks! and keep us posted!

                  Hi EmmA1025,

                   

                  At the beginning of this forum it states the following:

                   

                  There are divine and eternity dinner options (4 entree choices in total) and your guests can choose their entree in advance for free, or on the spot for an extra $30 per person, or you can choose for them for free.

                   

                  It is really up to you but most people are used to choosing their meals months beforehand.  I just went to a wedding where everyone was so excited to try what they selected when they RSVP'd.  When you make your invites, the RSVP card can list beef, fish, vege or be more specific.  Your stationary store can help you with that.  Hope that helps!
