Can anyone recommend a travel agent that has worked with Now Resorts in the past? I was thinking about getting a few quotes here shortly. Thanks! :D

Hi all! I'm getting married at Jade on July 10th! I am SO behind on planning and trying not to stress! Is there anyone else who will be there around that time??

We are getting married July 11th. I honestly haven't done much planning either! We have our photographer booked and about to book DJ. Other than that we are still waiting for 90% of our RSVPs to come back. We have a return date of April 30th. I probably won't plan anything until mid April. I have emailed with Isela and Pilar and there really isn't much to do. Although, we are most likely going to use the resort for table settings etc...

I attended the webinar also! What Isela meant is that bonfires are NOT allowed at the resort.. Obviously the presentation was old and should've been updated prior to the webinar..But the resorts used to allow bonfires/firepits. The Jade is on a Nature Preserve, they have turtles, and rare birds, etc on the resort so anything that could harm them is prohibited. Also it's their mating season I believe between May and October.. It's confusing, yes. I only know this because I've stayed at the Jade before. Other than the miscommunication about the bonfires, did you find the webinar helpful? I'm glad I was able to attend, I made a whole new list of questions I have to send Isela! Btw, I'm so thankful she's SO organized.. And I'm glad we decided against the Saphire, I sensed that Ramon was all over the place the other day! It was horrible!

 

The Fire dancers usually perform once a week there, you could ask Isela for an itinerary of daily activities... But I wouldn't recommend adding the firedancers. They're a nice touch but after 15 minutes, it's kind of played out. And I think id rather spend the money on something else, especially if it's not private..

 I thought the webinar was pretty good. I wanted to hire the fire dancers as a way to end our reception and i thought it was pretty cool. i saw them at someones wedding when i visited jade last may but i dont want to pay for them if my guests might already see them one evening .. Does anyone know of some other type of fun way we could end the night? With some sort of performance? I know they offer cigar rolling and such but that is more for cocktail hour i think. I want something as a surprise to end the night! Also, What type of other questions do you have for isela?

Is there any replay of the webinar available to watch?

I wanted to attend it but I was out of town this past weekend.

How many days prior to your wedding did you arrive?  

 

We are having a symbolic wedding so we shouldn't have to be there 3-4 days before the wedding right?  I was thinking we could arrive one day before our guest...two max.

I am getting married offsite but staying at the Now Jade. I really wanted to have the fire dancers at my wedding, but they are pretty much banned at the beach clubs--so I've had to come up with other options. If you feel like spending the money, you can opt for a Brazilian batucada (which is supposed to be really cool!) or water drums.  If the NJ doesn't offer the services, you might have to pay an outside vendor fee, but both of those options are pretty fun, IMHO!

From my understanding, there is not a requirement on how many days you need to be there before a symbolic ceremony. We were there two days prior which I though was just right. It gave us time to meet with the WC and also have my hair and makeup trial.

Thanks!

 

Now if only the wedding coordinator would respond to confirm she received our deposit I would be ready to continue planning. It's been a week and still no charge on our account.

    • Hello I am planning to get married at Jade Mountain in 2020 any new updates on weddings there or other St Lucia hotels and vendors appreciated 
    • Thanks for your good list.  I also love Marry Me and I'm Yours. 
    • I haven’t seen any recent info on wedding at the Now Amber PV. Has anyone had their wedding there recently? Any feedback etc. My daughter booked her wedding for 5/15/20 so any info would be greatly appreciated. 
    • Good list! I bet it got folks moving!
    • Hey fellow wedding planners. When me and my wife planned our wedding I started making playlists both for the reception and for the dance floor.  I wanted it to be more towards indie and alternative music and since I started sharing the playlists on Facebook and other social media I got so much appreciation I wanted to make them available to others planning their wedding. For the reception Will you marry me? Let's play this at our wedding - INDIE / FOLK / ALTERNATIVE For the dance floor I Bet You Look Good On The Dance Floor - Indie Party Anthems I also have a few other playlists that might be of interest for playing at a wedding It's all about JAZZ Fabulous Fingerpicking Folk (Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkle, Bright Eyes, Iron & Wine, Beatles etc) 88 Keys Of Magic - Contemporary Piano - Jazz / Neo Classical and More Fingers, Wood, Nylon and Steel - Contemporary Acoustic Guitar Instrumental Chill Out Gems Hope it can be of help or maybe just inspiration for your own wedding playlist! Let me know what you think!   Flag  Quote  Agree  Like
