    Hmmm, this is good info. I actually assumed that the opposite would happen (most would reply electronically), probably because the only thing I mail out are boxes/packages and I do everything on the internet. And I assumed that it was a big commitment and people would put the invite aside and potentionally lose the RSVP card.

     

    Maybe I should revise my RSVP card to include the entree selection.  My fear was the the RSVP card would become to cluttered (attending or not, # of guest, 4 entree selections, 1 veg, and allergy notes) but maybe if I play arounnd with the layout I might be able to make something work.

Would it be too much to have names & entree on one side and the saying about shaking the maraca on the other side?

      I think this option might work. My only concern is if people pick up their maracas "shake for a kiss" and put them down with the entree selection face down, or two maracas end up between two plates, than the servers may momentarily question who gets what. Not a huge issue, and it should be a quick easy clarification, but just something to think about.

        Hi Guys,

        I'm trying to book online using the Wedding Request Form but it keeps asking me to put in a check-in date when there is no such field. I've done it twice now on 2 computers last night and just now.  Anyone else encounter this problem?

        Thanks!

          Hmmm, when I booked I just contacted the WC (Pilar) directly to inquire about availability weddings.nojrc@nowresorts.com

           

          Give that a shot, you should have better luck.

          Hmmm. I'm not sure. Are you trying to request a wedding date? It may be easier to email the wedding department: weddings.norjrc@nowresorts.com

          Good luck! :)

            Thank you ShannonMarie & ChocoTaco7568!  Doing it right now!  Does anyone have any suggestions for time of day for the ceremony so that we can have enough sunlight for the ceremony but not too much time between cocktail hour and reception?

                Another question! I need some clarification. The Wedding Information guide Pilar sent to me list a DJ for $1000 for 4 hours. But isn't the reception only 3 hours?

                 

                Also, the guide she sent me is from 2012. Does anyone have the 2013 wedding info guide?
