I don't really have any better pictures of the reception set up, no. Because it was dark, photography was hard. Those are the best I have of the table set up and decorations.

    Wow. I cannot even believe how helpful this forum would have been for me! I was married at Now Jade last year, and had no clue this site existed. I just came here to review my photographer. For the record, Now Jade is a lovely place for a wedding, we were very happy! Good luck future brides!

    You can choose pretty much any appetizer, soup, main course, dessert combination you would like. You can have 2 different main courses, they will just have to know your exact numbers at your planning meeting, we had both beef and chicken. I sent in pictures of flowers I liked and they customized them and added ribbon, etc and for my choice there was no fee. We saw so many different wedding setups and flower arrangements while we were there, I think you can do almost anything. As for a signature drink, we went to the Mix Bar the second night we were there and Darius made us all sorts to sample which was really nice. I found that nothing was set in stone when you send in your planning form in advance, we changed things and added extras once we got there and had seen a few other weddings to see what we liked. I know lots of people on here had mentioned how it truly is so easy once you get there and i couldn't believe it either until I saw them in action, but it really is true :)
    quote name="kylie537" post="1881730" timestamp="1420395386"]We are getting married in April and we have started looking over the menu and planning extras etc... Can anyone recommend what hor d'eourves they selected from divine menu. What was good, what wasn't. We would prefer the buffet but we only have 40 guests coming. I also found it strange that the menu gives you 3 options but the one pick is the one every guest has to have for entree. It would be nice if the guests had a choice between two different entrees at least. Unless I'm understanding it wrong.
    Also sone ideas on signature drinks would be great:)
    We have two kids who will be 1 and 6 at the time of the wedding and my whole wedding party has kids ranging from 8 months to 6 yrs old. How was the pool area and beach areas for shade? Are their cabanas to use and how early do we need to get up to claim one. We're nervous about hearing reviews about the cups not being washed great and people getting Sick. Any advice for people that travelled with little kids to the resort?
    We went with the divine package but I don't like any of the flowers on the list. Did they charge you a crazy amount to customize flowers or is it worth going outside the resort. We want to have a mexican decor type,wedding so we were thinking of getting a bunch of Pom flowers and banners and decor while we were down there to incorporate in. Anyone had suggestions?
    We have 40 guests and are having our receptions at castaways. It's huge from what I have heard but divided into sections. We would like to keep all the tables in one section and then have dance floor and DJ in a different section. How many tables approx could fit In one of the sections? We need about 5 or 6 tables with 7 people approx.
    Sorry about all the random all over the place questions. Life's too busy to plan this wedding so I a, really hoping that I can get this thing all figured out in a day and then worry about the rest once I am there.[/quote]

    Wedding was absolutely PERFECT and the easiest thing in the world, I am on honeymoon so I don't want to spend much time online but will happily post and review in a few weeks. The coordinators are absolute pros, they all work together because often your "designated" coordinator will be busy in other meetings or events once you arrive but they all know EXACTLY what is going on and are all involved in your day. They will all know and greet you by name each time you walk in the office and each and every last minute request is possible. When I lost an e-ticket for my son, the hotel wanted me to go back to my room and email them the document to print out, and although this still would have been very easy, Pilar overheard this and just told me to go to her office and use her own personal laptop. We did the Pergola, Mix Bar, And Terrace for locations with Del Sol Photography and Disco Movil so I will be more than happy to answer any questions in the future. I am so excited for you all to get married here!

    Are makeup artist classified as a vendor? I hope not. I can't justify paying $350 vendor fee in addition to the cost for the service (~200).

    From all I've seen on the boards and with my hotel itself, any services require the vendor fee if they are coming from off the resort. Hair and makeup would apply! :(

    I had to pay 150 a person for my photographers, I would imagine that hair and make-up would fall under this price range.

    Those that used Discomovil did they send you a form for songs before the wedding?

    Yes they will send you a form for music, announcements, must play songs, etc. I thought they were incredible!
