Past brides - did you just send your wedding script to your coordinator? I realized I haven't sent that to anyone yet and it's a rather important part of the wedding!  :blink:

does anyone have a bigger selection of bouquet options? I am not crazy about the options in the Now Jade book. I need more ideas! Is there a more comprehensive guide?

I'm getting married at Now Sapphire, so it might not be the same at Jade. I sent my WC "inspiration" photos and explained what I wanted. He was able to get me a quote to provide that. In some cases, there was no extra charge. It depended on the flowers I wanted (some are more expensive than what's included in the package). Might be worth asking your WC what other options might be available.

 

Also, before I asked about completely different options, he did tell me I could specify the colors I wanted. Not sure how that works exactly, as not all flowers come in all colors. I guess they would just substitute some of the flowers in the selected bouquet to get the right colors.

I also sent my coordinator pictures of bouquets that I did like and she sent me back some quotes. Many were crazy expensive so I ended up going with the color palette I liked in flowers that were included. They will work with you in them, just send pictures!

Excellent! Thank you for the feedback on flowers. I will find some pictures online. I have sent a few pictures and the prices that came back were shocking. The roses and lilies are beautiful.

 

One more questions. Did anyone use DJ Movil? What was the vendor fee? They prices seem really good but I dont want to be blind sided by the hotel wanting a crazy amount for us to use them. We understand the fee is 350. Is that correct?

I'm baaaaaaack from the Now Jade!

 

Just as so many brides before me have said...everything was PERFECT!

 

Seriously, stop worrying right now - these people know what they're doing!I

 

I have a million things I want to write about and review that I don't have time for this second, but here are my biggest pieces of advice for now:'

 

1) Don't obsess and stress over the tiny detailed decorations - for me, everyone was having too much fun to even notice (including me). Invest in your dress, DJ, and photographer, and the rest are minor details.

2) Wear your hair up or back in some way.  It's breezy, hot, and sticky, and down loose hair seems to me like it would be a disaster, especially for pictures.

3) Hire Photos in Cancun for your photographers.  I'm going to write a whole separate post about them since we had the most amazing experience, but for now you can go to my Facebook for our pictures (they give you every. single. picture. they take right at the end of the night, and these ones aren't even edited yet).  To summarize how amazing they were, with 60 guests who all wanted so many pictures with us after the wedding, we ended up only having 10 minutes for bride and groom pictures, so they picked us up another day at a different resort, drove us to 3 different locations, spent 4 hours taking pictures of us, and then bought us a drink afterwards....for FREE, just to make sure we got the best experience possible. Seriously - if you haven't found a photographer yet, stop looking and hire them.

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
