    Thanks! Correct, I just assigned each person or couple to a table. Yes, they took their bottles to their tables.  Only a few were left behind.

    Does anyone know if you can bring your own bottles of alcohol for the reception?

    I am not sure the answer to this but I do know that unlimited alcohol is already included at the reception

      Thanks!

      If the buffett is open that night you might have people watching but I think that you would have that no matter what time you get married. It probably will be a little dark for pictures but I'm sure a good photographer won't have a problem with that.

       

      Regarding the day pass fee for the photographer and assistants. It's good to ask Pilar but I will say that once I got there she didn't charge me for my photographer. Stupid me even said something to her about the extra fee and she told me not to worry about it. I wasn't charged for a lot of things that I was supposed to be charged for (things that she said I would be charged for in emails.) Not sure if that happens a lot but I was surprised how easy everything was regarding the fees once I was there.

        Hello ladies,

        I am having such a hard time deciding if i am going to go with the resort photographer or someone else. Has anyone used the resports photographer? If so who was it and what did you think? Any info is appreciated, and a link to photos if you have them..... Thanks

        I wanted to make some sort of sign that says something along the lines of "Today we become one family so choose a seat, not a side" I'm just having trouble on which type of sign to bring. I found some yard sign type things on vistaprint but you  need to like stick them in the grass or sand and we will be at the Pergola. Does anyone have any idea how we could display a sign like that? I am soo un-creative.

          You could get a wood sign and have it leaning against something...or have a chalkboard and write it. The resort might have an easal that you can use but I would check with Pilar about that.

              To brides that have already been married at the resort:

               

              So I sent my Save the Dates and it looks like I will have about 10-12 guests that will not be staying at the resort. Has anyone had the same situation. I know Pilar said that an all day pass is $110 but there is also a 1/2 day pass. Did they allow your guests to come for the ceremony and reception? Did your guest pay the pass when they arrived at the resort? Did you pay it? How did it work? Any good/bad experiences?

               

              Thank you! Just worried about it...

              I don't have the answers to your question-sorry! But I'm just wondering where your guest are staying? I haven't been to the resort yet but from my understanding, the Jade is kinda located in a secluded area.
