  1. My wedding at Grand Palladium was in 2009, but I took and posted pictures of those restaurants on the board. You can visit this thread to see them: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/28568/i-m-back-and-now-a-palladium-bride-to-be-pics

Thanks-- I actually ended up going out dress shopping by myself a few months before the wedding and went with something completely different-- I was SO much happier with the choice I made without the pressure of shopping with the family/friends entourage!
  3. Thanks! I made mine with the help of my mom's friend but I saw tons of beautiful ones online for inspiration too-- hope that you found the perfect one! Thank you! Thank you-- we recently celebrated our 2-year anniversary and I loved looking at the photos to reminisce! Thank you so much! Two years down, already. Thank you! And no, my flowers were fake-- my godmother's friend made the bouquet for me! Thank you! The review was posted shortly after the wedding, 2 years ago-- hopefully all the photos and everything are still live so you can check it out! Thanks!
  4. Just peeking back in BDW after a long break and so happy to see that this thread is still up & running-- I LOVE these shots!

Phylica has told me that we have to have it private if there are more than 20 guests. Thank you, Christina I didn't know what to put on the wedding program. I guessed and kept it REALLY general- it said things like "Processional" "Exchange of Vows" "Unity Sand Ceremony" and "Recessional". I don't remember if it was at all correct, but I don't think anybody was paying any attention to it at all. lol I only remember a couple people blowing bubbles as we walked back up the aisle too! People were cheering and clapping and then dancing to the steel drum band. As for the reception-- from the first time I visited, I really wanted to have it at the Blue Lagoon, so I stuck with it. Saved money by not having the DJ, but just connected my iPod to their speaker, and renting their microphone. The other locations are also nice but I guess it just depends on what you're looking for. Good luck & happy planning!

  8. We used the steel drum band and they were awesome! They played for the ceremony and cocktail hour and was well worth the money. More details and pictures in my wedding review.

Would like to be outside or open air at least. Was thinking of Bubba's (nice and classy name haha) or Poseidon because those menus were the most appealing for us. I've seen a pic of Poseidon but none of Bubba's. So far we have 34 people so any insight would be really helpful. Thanks so much!! Bubba's isn't open-air, but Blue Lagoon and Posiedon are. Poseidon looks out over Sunset Cove beach.

Did you review with them ahead of time or they just went with the flow? Thanks! The steel drum band was great- the only song I selected in advance was the wedding march for when I came down the aisle!
  12. I've stayed at both and got married at the Palladium. Both are lovely resorts, but Riu is smaller, newer and closer to the airport. You can check my siggy for links to photos & a review. Cost for our guests was very important for us and GPJ had great deals (esp. through cheapcaribbean & bookit). Happy planning!
