It's official! Grand Palladium Lucea...

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies!!

 

I just joined this board yesterday so I am kinda new to this. But I was just in Jamaica a few days ago and I had an opportunity to speak with Charmane and she took me and my fiance on a tour of the property, and it is sooo huge!!! The rooms were all quite nice, even the basic room was beautiful. She showed me the four designated wedding areas on the property and for those of you who are looking at the gazebo as a location, there are currently in the process of moving that to a new location. It will be in a garden type setting but it overlooks the ocean, so you are getting the best of both worlds. From what I saw, when it is complete it will be quite breathtaking. She also mentioned that although they have designated areas, if you see another place on the property that you would much rather have then they would try their best to accommodate.

 

Everything else I saw everything was absolutely amazing. Because they just opened a little over a month ago there is still quite a bit of finishing touches going on... There were a few people still out landscaping and painting, the casino hasn't been completed, and I believe one of the buffet restaurants has yet to open. The beaches are still being worked on, and since they were all manmade they are trying to remove some of the rocks that are closer to the sand areas. They are also planning a second phase to the property which will add about 1000 more rooms, and make the property even more spectacular. I hope this helps :)

And from me, too! Thank you so much for letting us know how it went. Knowing that they are 'accomodating' to a degree makes me feel a whole lot better.

 

I've not been worrying TOO much, but it has always been in the back of my head that it is a new resort... and is somewhat of a gamble in the long run.

 

I know that all is going to be just perfect!

 

Did you get any pictures, by chance?

Hi Caroline - I am so happy to hear that you booked your site! cheer2.gif That is great. I hate to bother, but could you also send me the package information that you've sent other DW brides from GP? I too am looking at the GP (actually, it's at the top of my list) and would appreciate any information that you have regarding the property. I won't be getting married until next year (May OR June...I think!) so I really look forward to hearing how everything works out for you in a few months. I'm sure it will be wonderful & beautiful. My email is: virtuous_one98@hotmail.com

Caroline,

 

I do have a few pics from the GP but not as many as I would like because I gave my camera to my future brother-in-law so that I could pay full attention to Charmane while she showed us around... and unfortunately he didn't get pics of everything we saw. I have been kinda busy and haven't uploaded my pics but as soon as I do I will try to post them on here for you to see!!! And don't worry I'm sure everything will turn out to be just perfect. Take care!!

Hi,

Thanks so much for posting those pictures!! It looks gorgeous. I just booked Grand Palladium Jamaica for our wedding on July 10, 2009! Those pictures definately eased any worries I had.

 

How was the Blue Lagoon restaurant? It looks pretty in the picture...Charmaine told me this was the only option for a 4 hour reception. Have you heard of any other places for longer reception dinners?

 

did she say when the gazebo was going to be ready??

 

Thanks so much!!!

You're welcome! I'm glad I could help. cheesy.gif

The Blue Lagoon is the only place available for a reception longer than 2 hours. It's only open for buffet breakfast & lunch -- I only had breakfast there & it was great. Overall I thought the food was pretty good. You can have your reception there for the $300 site fee.

Poseidon is the included restaurant for the Caribbean Package but you can't have music (band, DJ, etc.) there and you only get it for 2 hours.

She said the gazebo should be there in the next few weeks. When I was there, they were clearing out the leaves and whatnot and she said they'd be clearing out a few of the trees but still leaving enough to give a garden feel.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
