I'm hoping for not a HUGHE group as well! It gets rather pricy! I know it's $53 pp extra for dinner, but I have decided not to do extra for cocktail hour... I've hear there should be enough food/drinks... We are canceling our dessert for dinner for 2 more o'dourves since its not needed since we will have the wedding cake, I hope that helps a little. What are your thoughts? Are u adding extra? $53 pp for dinner is pricy enough! Oh, I will be adding champagne at the end of the ceremony for $4 pp. Another thing, does anyone know if the package used to offer a complimentary room for the groom the night before the wedding? I thought I saw it in the past but it may have been a Dreams resort I'm thinking of.

I meant HUGE! Lol! Trying to type on my phone. Please excuse my errors..Sorry ladies! :)

62 guest booked, plus Bride and Groom!

    Hey Ladies,

     

    I may have misunderstood a message Pilar sent to me... From what she said  I understood the ceremony, cocktail hour and 3 hour of reception was included in the divine wedding package. However it does also say over 3 hours of reception coverage it's $15per person and then below that it say the dj is $250 an hour. I am so confused!! I've asked Pilar to clarify the information... I'll keep you posted:) Sorry for the confusion.

      I asked {ilar about the complimentary room for the Groom and they do not offer it  My FI will proably stay in onw of his guys rooms and I'll stay in ours.

       

      We also have close to 80 guests so we saved $$ by cancelling cocktail hour and trading for extra dinners. We didn't upgrade the cake since dessert was included with dinner package. Would still like the champaign but I was thinking of doing a signature drink at reception maybe instead?

        I was wondering if any past brides were still on here who could comment on their menu choices. We are looking at smoked salmon appie, lobster bisque, choice of beef/shrimp or tuna steak with Cajun, and creme br»l©e. Any comments on any of those ? Please let me know. Thanks.

            They offer a signature drink for both the cocktail hr and ceremony. 80 ppl??? Wow. We have 45 and I am stressing :)

              I know how stressfull it is to organize a group of that size! Only a few more months. We actually are not having the cocktail hour, so since we are paying for a private bar at the reception I hope they will have no problem making signature drinks for people. The ones I chose have pretty basic ingerdients so hopefully that will not be a problem..

                 Hi Ladies,

                After reading everyone's input regarding different pricing, I am very confused! Does anyone have an invoice you wouldn't mind sharing with me so I could get a better feel for what things actually cost and start to better plan my budget? Also, we have a few guests who do not want to stay at Now Jade. Does anyone know what the day pass fee is for the wedding day and is this the same for any other days they might want to visit the resort?

                 

                Thanks!

                Lauren
