HELP Grand Palladium Brides!!!!

Recommended Posts

wow thats amazing! ill check her site out.




Another Q - Most of my guest will be Jamaican's living abroad and may stay with family instead of at the resort. Jacynthia had mentioned an event permit and said it would be cheaper than paying the addition per person charge plus the off site visitor pass but she's hasn't gotten back to me on how much this event permit would be...has anyone else heard of this?

Thanks for all the info Jen! Your pics are great!


I had asked Jascynthia to email me the standard ceremony (b/c I also want a civil cermony with minimal references to God). She sent it to me and there are a lot of references and bible quotations so I have rewritten the whole ceremony myself (well, I put together stuff I found on the internet). I emailed it to Jascynthia and she said it won’t be a problem to use the one I have written (they just have to made sure all the necessary components are there to make the ceremony legal). Hope that helps!

One complaint is that we asked for a Civil ceremony and we had some God references in the readings but we let it go. Make sure you tell Jascynthia which one you want and make sure she lets the judge/Minister know.


Did you specifically tell them that you didn't want any mention of God? Or do you think we'd just need to really hammer it in when we have the civil ceremony that we really don't want any mention of that at our wedding.


We said Civil and ya i said it was really important to not mention God in any of it and i guess the message didn't get across, apparently my guests told me she was holding a sign halfway through that said Civil so the minister could see it but maybe he just ignored her? Just be VERY clear to her and hopefully it will be fine. He only said it maybe 3 times to it wasn't the end of the world.



The music was played through our ipod and was very good sound and they use a microphone so all the guests could here no problem.


We did not get the DJ, we had 2 MCâ€s and our IPOD and they gave us a wireless mic and speaker, very easy to use and sound was great. The dance floor was in the hub to the left of us were we danced till 10pm and then went to party with the reggae band upstairs which were AMAZING!


How did it work to have the IPOD for the ceremony - did someone just hit play and just went from there?


The DJ was there and he controlled it and for the lag time he played music and had music while we were doing the signing as well.


All in all the day was great, yes our wedding was delayed 45min,


Did you have enough filler music for your delayed ceremony or did you not have music during the delay?


As above the DJ was there and took care of it and that is included in your package for him to be there its no extra.


Just make sure when Jascynthia sets your meeting that its actually with her, b/c the first time I met I got her assistant who was useless and I had a total melt down and met with Jascynthia the next day. She managed to get most things right but she isnâ€t the nicest of people. We think they really need to hire someone with a little more passion for weddings!




Also, and I guess this is for everyone - is the resort very crowded? Are the buffets super crowded and hard to get to the food and the pools very full?


When we were there it was at 52% capcity so we never had to wait in line for a la carte, buffets and had chairs for everyone by the beach and pool. It was great!


If u need anything else just let me know!


Jen :)

So did you gave J your place cards for everyone's seating and she just placed them at the tables (according to your seating chart?)

The reason I was asking is cuz I was thinking of using sand dollars as the place cards with table numbers on them (Sand dollars Personalized, hand written Sanddollar Escort Cards, seating place cards Gulf sand dollar, Florida Keyhole sand dollar, Arrowhead sand dollar, shells). But I would have to put them in a basket because they won't stand on their own. So I'm guessing this idea wouldn't work out if you end up giving your place cards to J and she sets them up on the actual table.... .

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
