    Hi Everyone! :)



    I'm really happy to have found this forum! I've been feeling so overwhelmed trying to plan my destination wedding for Sept 2016.


    I've gotten really good group rates for both Azul Fives and Now Jade. My fiance and I had the chance to visit both these resorts and are having such a hard time deciding between the two!! Azul Fives is more extravagant and is the most beautiful resort I've ever seen. I'm hesitating booking it though mostly because of the reviews about Lomas, their decorating vendor. Dealing with them sounds like a nightmare and I'm nervous the wedding will be completely over our budget of $10,000! We are expecting about 30 guests, maybe a little more. We want a DJ and a decent photographer. Can anyone please tell me honestly if it's possible to have a wedding this size at Azul for $10,000 or less?


    Azul brides, can you please tell me how much your weddings cost?? You can email me dominika.bankowska@gmail.com


    Our group rate at Now Jade is slightly more expensive per person but figuring out an approx total cost for the wedding seems easier with Now Jade. Their pricing is more straight forward and it's all done through the resort coordinator, who is very responsive! Azul Fives hasn't responded to me yet. The practical side of me says to book Now Jade. It doesn't have a sky deck but it's still beautiful and the fees aren't as inflated as Lomas. The coordinator there has been so nice and helpful, his service alone makes me want to book Jade... but then I think of that AMAZING Sky Deck at Azul!


    Brides who have had their weddings and at either of these two resorts, please help! I really appreciate any advice I can get :)



    Thank you in advance!

        Hello Ika!

        i don't have anything bad to say of any of them. But I can say that getting married in Now Jade seems to be a little more easier. Both are great, but if you want to access external vendors Now Jade will be cheaper and more accesible for you. Beaches, services, acomodations are great in both.


        Good luck in your planning!

          hey there! I, myself, am a Karisma bride, getting married in August of 2016.

          Personally, I thought the wedding packages at the Karisma resorts were too amazing to pass up.

          They include a lot and have been so easy to work with!
