    Hi there, here is their website:

     

    http://www.floresriv...ng/weddings.php

     

    They are so great to work with! They get back to you pretty quick and they are soo much cheaper than what the resort quoted me!!

     

    Good luck!! :)

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!

        Hi Lauren, the wedding day guest pass is $55, but keep in mind that 80% of your guests need to stay at the Resort. Regarding your budget, your best bet is it get an itemized list and send it to Pilar for pricing.  If you want to know the total cost you're going to incur then this is the only way to do it.  Unfortunately the cost for every item/option hasn't been published by the resort and while this forum is a great place to get a rough idea, you will not be able to hold the resort accountable based on pricing you see in these threads.  There are many set-up fees and concessions that have been waived or swaped at the discretion of the resort. I'm sure there are many variables that play into this that we may not have insight on.  If Pilar quotes you a higher rate than what you have seen based on posts in this thread, then i would take it at face value and be pleasantly surprised if the cost don't show up or get discounted on your final invoice.

          Hi Ladies!

           

          So, I do feel like there is some inconsistency with the prices from Pilar. I see that some brides are saying they got 2 hours of DJ time included in the Divine package which is the same package I have. I asked Pilar if it was included and if I swap our the live music could I get DJ time. She said I would only get 1 hr and it will be $350 an hr after that plus $115 tax so that is basically $465 an hr for the DJ!! Has anyone received the same info???

          has anyone used or is planning on using DJ Doremixx for their DJ? or heard anything about him?

          Do you know if we have to pay an outside vendor fee?

              To the past brides, 

               

              Is it necessary to rent the sound system for your iPod for the cocktail hour? Our cocktail hour is at the Mix Bar and I'm just wondering if I should even bother preparing the music on my iPod and renting the sound system? Will it be weird without music? I was at a wedding last week and there was no music for the cocktail hour and I didn't even think twice about it. Then I thought more about it and I don't recall ever hearing music at anybody's cocktail hour. What's everyone's thoughts?


              62 guest booked, plus Bride and Groom!

                I'm not having music for my cocktail hour.  People will be chatting and mingling, there doesn't seem to be a need for it.  I look at it as a matter of preference.   Now that I think about it, I don't recall being at any weddings where there was music during the cocktail hour either.

                  We are not having music at the cocktail hour either.we are having our own song choices for ceremony(walk in and out). Then the mariachi band for dinner hour.I guess it is up to you really,but I agree ,I have never seen music at the cocktail hour at other weddings,but then I have never been to a destination wedding in Mexico before either,lol.
