    I think so. If I remember correctly, they're scheduled to be there an hour before our ceremony, too. We got the three hour package, so I figure an hour for before pictures is MORE than enough. I'd rather have more of the ceremony and after.

     

    23 days until we leave!!!!!!!!1

      0108 Bride,

       

      WOW! We are getting married the same week.  My wedding is January 5th!!!

      Finally someone really close in date. :)  

      Has Carolina been emailing you yet? I havent heard anything from her which is starting to freak me out but I've heard that she starts emailing a month before.

        Yeah!  We arrive on Jan. 4th!!  Carolina always takes awhile to email me back, but she always does!  I sent her an e-mail last week, and have not heard back from her yet.  People on this thread seem to say that once we arrive she will be very attentive, so that makes me feel better!  Where is your wedding/dinner going to be?

          Who is the next Palladium bride to get married? I can't wait to hear another brides review! Our wedding is in April 2011. I am getting nervous because a lot of people said they were coming but they haven't booked yet. Our immediate family booked, but thats it so far. We are fine with them being the only people there, but will the Palladium treat us any different since we might just be a small group?

           

          We aren't sure if we will have money for photography, but we are looking into using HDC for the TTD session since its ALOT cheaper! How soon in advance has everyone booked HDC?

           

          Sorry for all the questions! I guess thats what happens when your away for awhile! lol



           

          Jerzshortstuff,

          I'm also getting married April 2011, the 11th actually. I had the same problem with people saying they were booking and backing out or not booking. Oh well it will still be fun! I also booked HDC for our photography, they've been great so far with the booking. I would ask HDC how booked up he is on your date then you can figure out how quick you need to book. What day in April are you getting married?

            We arrive January 2nd.

            Likewise, I have sent one too but no reply. We will have a private dinner reception on the beach.

              We are getting married April 28th! I will definitely check with HDC... although since we will prolly only do the TTD session (since $ is tight), I am thinking they can book it whenever. I will be excited to hear your reviews when you come back since its so close to my date! 

               

              Is anyone getting married in 2010? I'm anxious for new reviews, tips, and photos

               

              And I know it has been mentioned on here before.... but do we know what our bouquet and dinner options are?

                Hello to all the brides on here. I'm getting married May 2001 and have a couple questions for you guys. Did anyone find deals at the Palladium if you booked a certain amount of guests? Maybe a free trip or cash back? Also, I'm trying to plan for decorations at the reception, I'm doing a private reception and I don't know where it will be yet, how did you go about coordinating colors, centerpieces, and other details?

                 

                Thanks for all the advice

                Christine

                  Mellibelli, your wedding is the day before mine!! Mine is April 12, 2011 so we'll be there at the same time! It's so cool to meet another bride on here that'll we'll probably bump into down there! Nice to meet you? How's all your planning going??

                    Hi Chooker13,

                     

                    Well, I think it's normally the travel carriers (so whoever the package/flights are booked through like Apple, Sunwing, Air Canada Vacations, etc.) that give deals if a certain number of rooms are booked. For us, we need 20 rooms booked to get the equivalent money to a free flight...we have the 20 rooms booked so we will get some sort of rebate from the carrier to put toward our wedding fee, I just don't know the exact dollar amount yet...I should probably ask my travel agent that, haha. We also got a group rate, too.

                     

                    We're doing the private reception as well since we have enough people. Our colour is turquoise. For colours, the resort has numerous colours for ribbons or sashes if that's what you mean and you just have to tell Carolina what you want...you can send her an email or just wait until you get there and meet with her.  As for centrepieces, I'm not too picky so will wait to pick something down there. I am going to bring a few things for the dinner tables with me, such as blue-green votive candles, and some sea shells as decorations.
