    Brushing/swallowing was supposed to be brushing/showering! :) sorry!

      It could be something going around in the area. Brides in the Gran Caribe forum got sick as well. You ladies seem to have been in Mexico around the same time. I believe someone's husband couldn't attend his own reception. Just my .02!

Anyway, I wanted to give you all my 2 cents on the diarrhea issue. There were a lot of people in our group who had intestinal issues at Now Jade, including me. Mine only lasted a day and was never horrible but I took immodium right away and just 2 pills the one time and was fine the rest of the trip and at our honeymoon resort (royal playa del carmen) as well. My fianc© never got sick, but probably a good half the group of 30 people were having problems. I drank the water in the restaurants unless it had the smell (you'll know when it's tap water believe me!) and brushed my teeth with the water but never swallowed any water while brushing/swallowing and my fianc© did the same as I. I swear the intestinal issue is coming from the pool bar glasses in that non sanitary bucket of grossness. Everyone who spent a great deal of time there drinking mixed drinks (i.e.) not from a can) got a little sick. It was never anything that isn't to be expected when traveling but still not fun. Germs in an resort like that can spread like wildfire and I honestly feel like that's where it came from. We mentioned it to them when we checked out so hopefully they will do something about it if enough people speak up.

         

        That sounds unpleasant! I hope that everything else happened according to your plan and that you had a wonderful, blissful wedding and honeymoon!

          For brides who got married by the Fountain area please help me! I'm getting married April 12/14 and I'm a little nervous with my choice to get marred by the fountain area. I have not been able to find any pictures or comments about this location as everyone seems to get married by the pergola. Please help and reassure my that it will be a great location. Also I was wondering if the photography package in the Eternity package will be enough or should I get more?

            If we did not book preferred, does this mean we do not get upgraded to preferred? I thought the preferred upgrade was included in the package so we did not get book preferred, but now I am confused. 

            Even if you don't get upgraded to a room on the preferred side you will still have all of the perks of being preferred. We had booked an ocean front room and when we arrived they put us in an ocean front room on the regular side but told us we had all of the perks of being preferred. Honestly, the preferred side and the perks weren't anything great in my opinion. Don't stress about it too much; they always seem to give the bride and groom the upgrade.

              Hi AshleeB

               

              Welcome to the forum...  :o)

               

              I'm also getting married at the fountain. Here are some of the pics I have of the fountain... I think it looks really nice personally... I've seen a few videos of the Pergola and the Beach and it seems quite windy so I am happy with my choice. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

                  What is everyone picking for appetizers?  I am trying to figure out what to pick but have no idea.  

                  I'm having trouble with this too. I would normally go with the seafood options, but I was just in mexico at another Now resort and the seafood (ceviche, shrimp cocktail, etc) wasn't anything like I'm used to hear in the US. I think I'll play it safe and go basic. Maybe the quesedillas, tostadas, cheese and crackers, etc.
