OFFICIAL NOW Jade Wedding Thread

Recommended Posts

My wedding is on 26th May 15 so still lots of time to decide. I'm working on a few quotes from an outside photographer so will see how it goes, so expensive!! I'm getting lots if answers here but it creates more questions!! Ha ha ha Dress picking is the next thing on the agenda!

We are using Moments that Matter. I think he was pretty reasonable and his works looks amazing. I had to beg my fiancé to agree I let us hire someone outside. But I know we won't regret it!

We are using M&J Photography.  My fiances' aunt knows them and recommended them.  When I first looked at their prices I thought they were really high, but after shopping around it turns out they are pretty reasonable.  http://www.mandjphoto.com/

What do past brides suggest for menu selections? I won't have time to do a tasting before the wedding so I'm hoping to get some suggestions from you ladies!

 

I have the divine package.

I have the divine package.

I was wondering about this as well. Most the options look like things I would not normally eat!

OMG! I just sent in the final documents today! We are 50 days away today and I agonized the most over the menu. I was only going to have 1 menu choice for everyone and then it dawned on me.....geez, people may have a seafood allergy or hate it. Since we are paying a premium for the menus I want to make sure everyone has a great meal they will like.

 

When all was said and done I have a Seafood and Non Seafood menu.

 

Seafood:

1st course- Mixed Salad from the Vegetarian menu

2nd Course- Lobster Bisque From Devine

Main- Beef Filet with Shrimp in a red wine sauce and mashed potatos - Devine

Dessert- Chocolate Souflette in a baileys sauce

 

Non Seafood

Course 1 the same as above

2nd- Spinach Ravioli in a Basil Cream Sauce

3rd- Beef Filet same as above without Shrimp

Dessert- Same as above.

 

I tried to keep them as streamlined as possible because the more complicated the longer dinner service will be cutting into the party party!

 

I really hope everyone enjoys dinner, I love wine and food and the whole reason we chose this resort was for the private dinner option with great menus.

Thanks for the recommendations for the photography, these are a couple of companies I havent looked at so I will check them out.  We dont do "Trash the Dress" in Scotland, I dont think I have the heart to trash my dress, think I'll get it cleaned and give it to charity!  I can always make use of the resort photographer some other way.

 

Oh Im looking for all the menus including veg & gluten free, would someone mind passing them on?  I was under the impression that we could only choose one starter etc?

 

Can anyone help with this one, does anyone know for sure if the flowers on the pergola included with the Devine Package?  Ive read a few places that they are then they arent, can anyone clarify?

 

Thanks again!

Leigh

Hi Brides!

 

I know this topic has probably been beat to death, but is there anyone who's used the resort photographers semi-recently and can share photos?  I'm having a hard time justifying an additional $2000-$3000 for an outside photographer when one comes with the Divine package.

 

Also, does anyone know how many hours of photography the Divine package entails?  I know on the sheet it says "Photo Package (24 full color photographs) and Wedding Album ( only ceremony)"--does that really mean they only take pictures before the ceremony/immediately after (no reception or getting ready?) Sorry if I'm being obtuse, I'm just hoping I'm reading it wrong!  :wacko:

I'm under the impression that the included package only includes the ceremony and pictures on the beach afterwards. Approx. 1 hour and only 24 photos.

 

I also have the Divine package and do not think this is enough. I can't justify spending $3000 for an outside photographer either so I have added on the Number 2 package (3 hours of photography) for about $1000 to my package, this will include getting ready, ceremony, pictures on beach, and cocktail hour. Then I'm using my included package in the divine for a trash the dress session.

@@leggi, the trash the dress thing was new to me too, but it seemed like such a unique experience to add since we were getting married in mexico.  anyways - not trying to convince you to do it, but just wanted to let you know that from what I've read it really doesn't trash the dress.  Alot of people say it actually cleans it because it gets dirty from walking around and dancing during the reception.  they say if you hang it to dry afterwards and then get it professional cleaned the dress is fine.  my mom was initially freaked out i was going to do it, but when she read that she was more ok with it.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?
