HELP Grand Palladium Brides!!!!

Recommended Posts

Ladies,

 

Are you planning to host any other events (on-site) besides the wedding reception. Like a group dinner or cocktails at the bar? Curious to know what others are doing leading up to the wedding. I was thinking of a group dinner in a buffet resturant and/or meeting up at the Infinity Bar for drinks.

I am thinking of Welcome meet and greet on my guests arrival date (thursday) at the infinity bar and then a rehearsal type dinner at the beach BBQ the friday before our saturday wedding for the immediate family and wedding party. On sunday I was thinking of maybe some beach volleyball game or scavenger hunt.

Hi!

They finally wrote back. They didn't have my ceremony time, location and reception location reserved! I had selected all these things months ago. It's all arranged now though, thankfully. The new wedding coordinator seems really nice. I have the Blue Lagoon reserved for 6pm.

I was considering the Steel drum band. What about you? What are you doing for music?

 

Thanks!

Julie

I chose
Appetizer:
CRAB AND CHEESE BREAD
Soup:
ARTICHOKES AND TOMATO TANDEM SOUP Served with bread croutons
Entrees:
GRILLED GARLIC SHRIMPS SERVED WITH SEASONAL VEGETABLES AND RICE
or
CHICKEN BREAST GRILLED SERVED WITH POTATOES, VEGETABLES AND WHITE WINE GRAVY

Phylicia said she needs to know who wants what, which I hate to do, I'm going to ask her if there's any way to let my guests choose when they get there.

I'm going to have a dinner the night before - right now I'm at 20 people -I think we can manage at one of the buffet restaurants and just pull tables together. Most people are coming Thursday, a few on Friday.

Wow - I'm glad you got that straightened out! I'm just using an IPOD for music - I'd love to do the Steel Drum band but it seems like a lot of $ for a short time.

Hi Jenn,

All my correspondance has been via e-mail. I prefer that because at least I have a paper trail. I have asked to confirm all my reservations and they did. They have not discussed menus with me yet...
She sent me a list of things to confirm including music and flowers.

I suggest you let them know how frustrated you are and ask for everything in writting. They have been very responsive since I did that. I can e-mail you my correspondance with them if it helps.

Let me know how it goes.
Julie

The beach BBQ dinner sounds nice, do they offer this every Friday? Is seating right outside on the beach? Do you know if they can reserve seating for guests at the BBQ?

The scavenger hunt would be great on a resort the size of the Grand Palladium! The challange will be for you to remember where you hid everything!

    • 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? 
    • Hello Everyone, Share your favorite wedding venues. And also give me a Solution. I choose Wedding Venues in mobile al the Anne-marie cottage.
    • Hello Jania! are you bringing any external vendor for your wedding?
    • Looking forward to seeing your cruise wedding photos!!!
