HELP Grand Palladium Brides!!!!

Recommended Posts

JerseyKitten, I just opened up the link to look at it again (I'm luvin it) and I noticed the photograher is sungold who I know are some amazing photgraphers in JA. Do you know if theyu have officially opened up to outside Jamaican photgraphers or do you still have to act like there family and wedding guests?[/quote

 

I have booked one of Sungold's associates for my wedding in October at the Grand Palladium. How Paula explained it to me was that if the photographer has a room booked they are considered guests of the hotel and therefore it will not be a problem. I have not read anywhere in the information sent to me from the Palladium that specified no use of outside photographers (nor have I signed anything agreeing to that) so I can't see it being a problem on the day. I have booked our photographer a room for the night of the wedding and we are splitting our photography time between the day of the wedding and the day after. Hope that helps!

Paula told me she's never had any issues getting into the Grand Palladium - never had to pay for a day pass or anything. I don't think they're that strict - I don't even plan on telling them that they're coming - they know how to come in on they're own.

Day Pass (9am - 6pm) $55 US For Adults, $28 US For kids (3-12)
Night Pass (6pm - 2am) $65 US Adults, $32 US For Kids

Keep in mind the per person charge for anyone above 8, thats extra..

I am not planning on telling them that I am using an outside photographer either.

Jerseykitten-are you still planning to use the hotel photographer for the pictures that are included in the wedding package? I think I am going to ask for those pictures to be taken the night before at our rehersal dinner.

Hi,

At GP for our rehersal dinner they just gave us a private section of one of the a la carte restaurants and it didn't cost anything extra!

Hi,

The food at the GP was AMAZING! I am a pretty picky eater but i love it all. There is sooo much to choose from with so many restaurants! The food was always hot, cooked well and had tons of flavor. My fav restaurants were the italian, indian and Jamaican! The sports bar had these wicked sandwiches and the chicken nuggets tasted like the ones from McDonalds!!

Hope that helps!

I hadn't even thought about it - that's a great idea!

HELP!!!! I am trying to figure out my photography situation. I am getting married June 3, 2010 at the Grand Palladium Jamaica. Do you have to use True Colors Photography? That is the only information Jascynthia sent me. Has anyone used True Colors? If so, were you happy with your photos?

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
