  1. I just returned today. I got married June 19 and we stayed on the LH side and some of my guests stayed on the LH side and others on the GP side (referred to as the Jamaica side). I didn't see any difference. They even let some of the guests change from the GP side to the LH side got be closer to us. WE loved it, all my guests were happy and we had no major complaints. There were a couple of things that were not 100% for everyone, but what place is??? My wedding was all that I could have hoped for and my wedding coordinator went out of her way to make sure we were happy. A full review is coming soon.
  2. Hello Future Palladium Brides, I just got back from Lady Hamilton Grand Palladium today and have to say my wedding was everything I could have hoped for and more! You cannot make changes to the colors of the flowers in the packages (however I did receive and upgrade for my bridal bouquet). The package prices include 8 guests and you pay an additional $20 for each additional guest. This covers their seating & champagne toast. YOu can have a private or non-private dinner. I chose to do a cocktail reception so we could play our own music and have our first dance ($15 per person). The food was EXCELLENT at the cocktail reception, much better than anything we ate at the resort, including the reception dinner. Our cocktail reception was held at the Infiniti Bar and was private and was absolutely wonderful!! I had a small wedding (18 guests, aged 4 years old to 68 years old) and ALL my guests loved the cocktail reception. The dinner was at Bubbas Grill and was o.k. Any how I could go on and on, if you have any questions let me know. I will get pics up soon and will post a complete review. Just know that the communication is slow until it gets closer to your date, but in the end all was taken care of and I have no complaints!!!
  3. Hi Mrs. Jones, We actually brought a friend who is an awesome photography, but TrueColors is the resort photographer and some of their shots come with the package. We DID NOT like the photos taken by TrueColors. If these were the only photos of my wedding I would have been upset. If you want professional editing and photography I would not use TrueColors. My husband (also a photographer) compared their work to the cheap photos taken by mall photographers.
  4. The jewelry is really easy to make. A friend and I googled how to make barefoot sandals and watched a youtube video and made some for all my bridesmaids and for me! It was the first time I had ever done anything like this, I am not crafty! It didn't take long, we actually did it during an "extended" lunch break while at work!
  5. Thanks for the link!! I was just about to order stickers!!
  6. I am getting married at the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton in June 2012, and would agree with the previous posters, response time for many of the hotels is slow so far out, they tend to focus on the brides with upcoming weddings. In speaking with other GPLH Brides, they have advised not to stress on the slow response in the beginning, a few months prior to the wedding the coordinators will take care of you. I have been in contact with someone from sales~ Angelly Arias and she has always responded much quicker than those in the wedding department.

  8. Your bags are great!! I emailed my MOH and let her know we were using your ideas as a guide!! My fiancé loved them too!
  9. My experience was AWEFUL!! I started planning my June 2012 wedding in December 2010 and chose to work with Destination Weddings in February. I am so happy I got out of this useless relationship with this company... Now they did get me a group package for my guests hotel accommodations (I had already picked the resort, so I didn't need help with that) and initially the travel agent seemed pretty helpful... Unfortunately getting rates for airlines became an issue. They wanted me to have my guests book their rooms, prior to knowing the price of the airfare and when I kept inquiring about airfare, the TA suddenly went on vacation and I never heard from her again. I waited a week after her supposed return before sending a email to their customer relations agent. Needless to say I spoke with agent after agent and was then put in contact with someone in the corporate office who said they do not even look at airfare rates until we book the rooms. Now, I thought that was ridiculous, the airfare is the bulk of the trip and it could be the deciding factor for most people as to whether or not they can afford to go, but if that was the policy, why didn't someone tell me that 3 months ago!!! I had received a group rate from American Airlines and Continental and submitted it to the original TA and she kept saying she was trying to see if DW could match it so my guests would only have to pay one company. Funny thing is, in my conversation with the corporate agent, and I quote, "I am not going to look into the prices because I don't believe you are serious about booking!" I am a highly educated individual, but she made my far less tactful side out at that point!! Really!! This is a wedding, not a vacation, of course I am serious (as of today 24 people have booked through another company without their help!! Guess they lost out on this $$)... Even after all of this I didn't ask out of the deal.... A few days later I received a call from the corporate agent stating they did not feel they could continue to help me and DW was backing out of the deal and would return my $50 deposit... I was in complete shock!! Nevertheless, I have helped my guests book by giving them a few options of TA to use and most of us have just booked online through www.cheapcaribbean.com. My advice.... do not use this company, and if you do, proceed with caution and start the relationship early enough to give yourself time to readjust if you need to.
  10. Sorry for the multiple posts! I sent the message from my phone and it kept giving me an error message!
  11. I actually ended up going with 16 oz. Stadium cups. They are reusable plastic cups, I ordered fro paperhouseonline.comm, they require a min purchase of 50, so we will have some extra. The cups (tons of colors to chose from) artwork ( we chose palm trees) and 3 lines of wording, plus shipping came out to $59.

  14. Trying to get pricing that far out was a pure HEADACHE for me!! Now I know I took on too much trying to get everything right for everybody. The hotel pricing didn't change much from when I first started looking (over a year in advance), but the airfare fluctuates as well. We told our guests to plan for according to the current rates, (around $1000 for 3 nights and 4 days) and it was pretty much the same once we started booking. I kept trying to work out the best deal, and finally gave up and gave my guests a few recommended vendors to book their travel.
  15. I am bringing everything (checking into the bottled water, my parents are heading to Jamaica a few days before us, I am going to see if they can pick up some cases... Not sure though. If they can't then bottled water is out. It weighs too much!!) but I am going to spread the love in the luggage of Bridesmaids!! We are probably going to do a lot of the assembly at the resort on Tuesday and pass them out at a welcome dinner on Wed. or Thurs.
