    ha, no problem!  check out these attachments she sent me- one for religious, one for non.  Looks like the main difference is an addit'l reading and a verse about marriage at the beginning?

    Ladies I am just full of questions this afternoon!

     

    1) is anyone bringing their entire ceremony script? I have one i'd like to use but I'm just not sure if they'll get it right, lol

    2) The $500 deposit we put down goes toward our package, correct?


    62 guest booked, plus Bride and Groom!

      I love the lighting in the bamboo room-- was that from the DJ package or was that something you arranged with Pilar? My reception is booked for the Bamboo room and I was hoping it would have lighting options.... mostly, I don't want it too bright!

          Hi Shannon- yes, on our invoice, she totals everything, then subtracted the $500.00 from that :)

          And I also plan on bringing a script - or at least, specifying which readings I want and the basic timeline of the order of ceremony!

            Good question, hopefully a former bride can let us know!
            When is your wedding date, srikhy?

            Ohhh, lighting would be so pretty! I was at a wedding last weekend and it was such a nice touch! I wonder if I can do lighting in Castaways. I agree with not wanting it bright!

Even our group rates are coming in at 1900+. Unfortunately changing dates isn't an option as we already sent out our STDs thinking this resort would be in our budget. Any advice on whether someone has gotten a really great price or can tell me other resorts around $1600 per person? Thanks so much, we are really in a pinch!

               I heard the same thing from my travel agent... but ultimately, what I've been finding is that the group rates for Now Jade are more expensive and less convenient than people booking on their own. The quotes I received were only valid for 30 days and the early booking bonus didn't make up for the higher price... it was literally $600 more per person than what I could find online.

                Yes, I'm hoping! The lighting makes all the difference!

                 

                We're booked for May 30 2013 so still a lot of time to plan... and fret!

                Are you talking about the special color lighting? like pink?

                If yes, then they put like 8 cans which cost $350 together and it gives a special lighting effect. You just have to tell Pilar/Deisy. We are doing pink :)
