HELP Grand Palladium Brides!!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi fellow GP Brides!!

 

I just returned from Jamaica:)  I'm not getting married until May of next year, but my fiance and I were attending a friend's wedding in Negril at a different resort, so we made an appointment to do a site visit of GP.

 

The tour did not start off so great - I've been dealing with Kimberley, and as it turns out, the day of our tour was her final day at the resort :(  At first, they asked if we could re-schedule, but we had just taken a cab from Negril ($40 each way), so rescheduling would have really put a crimp in our plans AND it's expensive!  Nina (the manager) came out to meet us. She apologized for the mix-up and spent the next 2 hours with us showing us all of the ceremony sites and possible venues for the reception and answering all of my many questions. She is absolutely lovely. By the time I left, I was so excited, I hugged her :)  

 

I have my heart set on the gazebo for the ceremony, but one thing I have to share with you is that all of the ceremony sites are quite beautiful. We saw the beach site first, and as it is near the end of the resort (on the Lady Hamilton side), it is fairly private, given the fact that it's on a beach.  I think there will be less issues with people walking through the pictures than I have seen at other resorts. Nina told me they are looking into getting a nicer archway for the beach site.  Not sure when that would happen.

 

The gazebo site is just as beautiful as imagined it would be. It's quite a large gazebo compared to others I have seen and it is in a very private location, which I love. The only issue with the gazebo site is that it cannot seat a lot of people if it rains, as the site would get a bit muddy in that situation.

 

I have to say the "back-up" location (the spa) is also very beautiful.  Nina said they use that location for very large weddings.  I can honestly say that if it rains on my wedding day, I won't be that upset, because the backup location is fabulous as well.

 

When I arrived at the resort, I was pretty convinced that I wanted the Blue Lagoon for my reception.  And I really loved the Blue Lagoon. Until I saw the Poseidon. Because we are estimating about 40 to 50 people at our wedding, I think the Poseidon is actually the perfect size for our reception. And the restaurant is white and turquoise (my wedding colours are turquoise, white and green).  I still have to discuss it in more detail with my fiance, but I think we're going to go with the Poseidon instead!  I also like that it is quite separate from the rest of the resort. That may be a drawback for some people, but for me it is a bonus!

 

I was so excited at the end of my tour. Honestly, when you choose to do a DW, you are giving up some control. Normally, people see the wedding/reception location where they are getting married before they book. We didn't have that option.  I am thrilled with this resort. It is HUGE and absolutely beautiful :)

 

Let me know if you have any questions!

The town that is near the resort is called Lucea.  I drove through there a few times, but did not see any flower shops.  The resort recommends Tai Floral.  I am bringing down real touch bouquets and making my own centrepieces out of fake flowers.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
