    I'm sure this has been in one of the previous 300+ pages, but I can't find it. Does anyone know off the top of their head how many paper lanterns would be good to bring to help decorate Castaways? Would 30 be enough?

     

    Do the lanterns in Castaways just get hung around the perimeter of the room?

      I'm also newly engaged and considering having my wedding here in July 2014. We're still looking into Cabo or Cancun, but I'm really liking Now Jade. I want to decide soon so I can get the whole process started for our guests so they know to save etc.

        Also what happens for meals for babies? Kids too young to not get anything, but also not old enough to probably have a cheeseburger or spaghetti and fries? Is there something the resort does for kids that are around 1 yr old? Is there a cost?

        Does anyone know if I can bring back my flower bouquet to the states?

          That is a great question?  I don't believe that stuff like that can be brought back!

            I don't believe flowers (anything living) can go through customs.  I know we're not able to ship that stuff down there...

              For past brides who brought lots of extra stuff down with them in their suitcase (OOT bags, OOT bag contents, decor, etc) what did you say you had in tow when you went through customs??? With most of my travel experiences, I've realized that the less you say the better, but I'd hate to get searched and have to pay taxes and/or fines on these contents if I don't declare them!! If a bride is bringing down a large amount of anything, should we be declaring it at customs and how much (in value) are we allowed to bring into the country?? I'd say I'm bringing less than the average Jade bride, however things add up $$ quickly. I've read about brides splitting the content between all suitcases and getting the bridal party to help out too,but how much can each person bring and be safe?? Also are receipts needs for any of the bulk purchases?? Any info would help :) Heather

              Also, did you pack your OOT bags before going or once getting there? I'm concerning about not having receipts for things that require receipts....

                To past brides, how long did the courses take at dinner (about 60 people to serve)? I'm trying to come up with a schedule for my emcee.

                Thanks,

                Trisha
