OK I finally uploaded my wedding album! http://1drv.ms/1tIAX1i

 

Make sure that you:

1) Sort by Name (Ascending)

2) Click on the Details view Icon

3) Click on first picture title (should be wbaphoto 01)

 

This way you can scroll through pics in chronological order AND get an idea of WBA's work. I did put a few pics that were taken by my friends in the mix. Hope you guys enjoy! Let me know if you have any questions!

 

NOTES:

- We had 79 adults and 9 children. We had the Divine Package.

- We were married at the fountain of the resort at 4pm. Added the $1,500 wooden walkway upgrade

- Cocktail hour was held at the Eclipse nightclub (supposed to be the garden but it rained an hour before the wedding and 

  grass was soggy. My WC Luisa actually gave us this option or the hallways of the ballroom).

- Reception was held in the ballroom. We used their centerpieces (sent them pics of what we wanted) and upgraded to tiffany chairs. 

- DJ service was DJ Mannia. We used this company's DJ/MC Service and their white wooden dance floor. The bubbles and sparklers were not ordered; they just did it!

- The tall oversized men just so "happened" to be in the hallway of the ballrooms and just stopped in to say hi! Unplanned and hilarious!

 

Best day of my life for sure!

@@duchovny0901 Your pics are amazing!! You looked absolutely stunning!! I see that you said that you got your centerpieces through the resort were they expensive. I'm not sure what I want to do as far as centerpieces, since I'm already bring so much stuff down with me already.

@@Jahanee Conner Thanks so much!!!!! I did get the centerpieces through the resort because just like you, I had too much stuff to pack and carry down there! It was a last minute decision to use their centerpieces. I'd sent my WC ideas for flower centerpieces and she quoted me as high as $285 each! Not happening. So we went with a different flower arrangement which was about half that, still on the expensive side. One option you can do which she told me is that you can rent the vases they have there and just bring the items that you want in them. For example, I saw a centerpiece on Pinterest where there was a square glass vase that had those fake limes in them, then pretty fake flowers to top it off. I think to rent the vase from the resort it was quoted as $10 each. Hope this helps!

Hello ladies. I'm definitely loving this topic as I recently got engaged and we are thinking of a July 2015 wedding. The now was recommended by a travel agent but from reviews on trip advisor I'm thinking twice about. Can you please share your experiences, advice, pics anything you can think of with me.... please this has been overwhelming and with having less than a year I need to get moving on this.

@@joacevedo15 Congrats on your engagement! This forum has been the BEST source of info in helping to plan my wedding, and I'm hoping to give back any info and advice that I can! I had a phenomenal time at Now. The service was outstanding. The food was great. The grounds are clean and well kept. Our room was amazing (my hubby and I had the Oceanfront Master Suite). I think in terms of helping make your decision, an important factor to me was considering what deal the resort could offer me and my large group for staying at their resort. My TA was able to do the work for me; contact the resorts we were interested in and they all gave us quotes and a promotion detail (like if you book 5 rooms your 6th is free). Now gave us the best rates and the wedding packages and locations at the resort were impressive.

 

At Now our guests had Deluxe Tropicalview rooms (Preferred and non-preferred) which they all enjoyed. The only thing with that is that although "Preferred" guests are supposed to get specific amenities (like certain pools and restaurants) it appeared no one was checking if you were actually perferred or not. At the preferred pool and restaurant (Castaways), our non-preferred guests walked in and hung out with us the whole time. So save the money and stick with the regular rooms since you won't be in there half the time anyway!

 

I attached a link to pics from my wedding at Now a few posts back. You can get an idea of what the grounds look like as well as decor options and WBA's work. Honestly I felt like this was my perfect wedding day and it was better than I could have imagined! Feel free to ask any questions!

@@duchovny0901 Omg love love love your pictures. It def helps to see real pictures instead of the ones the site provides. I stayed at the Now Jade in Rivera Maya last month and it was not a bad hotel but def not a place I would go back to I guess maybe that was another issue of mine in deciding on the now larimarbut your pics did sawy me towards this place. I have sooo many questions on well everything, lol. Maybe I will start with seeing if they even have the date we have planned available maybe then I can bombard you with questions. Yikes this is a lot to take in. Glad I have you ladies to get advice from. I do have a quesiton is there a place with a great view for pics I'm from Chicago so views mean a lot to me.
