I also tipped everyone. It is not required. They will not ask. I believe it made the world of difference. The weekly wage in Jamaica is around $50, I believe. $10 or $20 goes along way. I asked Nina many times about this and she would never give me an average tip amount. She explained that in Jamaica they might pay $150 a month for rent where we pay $1200 or more. She also said that it is not required but anything would be appreciated. I also made friends with a young waitress named Odette. I requested her for my reception and she made sure my glass was never empty. I helps if they like you. Make friends and request them.

 

Good luck! Happy Planning.

Hi! I am getting married at the Grand Palladium on April 29th. I was wondering if anyone has pictures of what their beach ceremony looks like? I've seen a couple of pictures but they look different so I'm not sure which one is the beach I am getting married on. Nina said that it is called Las Brisas beach- did anyone get married on that beach? We are going to have about 70 people and will have chairs/archway that we rented. Just want to be able to visualize the ceremony.

 

Any information that you can provide would be greatly appreciated!


Thank you so much!

Here is a picture from our ceremony on the beach. The ceremony was at 4:00. We all went barefoot. The ceremony was absolutely perfect and I felt like I was dreaming because it was so amazing.

 

You can see from the pic what the groom wore, and the groomsmen wore white linen pants and navy linen tops.

 

I will do a full review for you guys this weeken (I started back to work this week from my Maternity leave and we jsut got back from GP on Sat.)

 

Overall, I was pleased with the day, but mostly because I married my wonderful husband, surrounded by our loved ones, in paradise. There were definitely a number of issues I had with the GP and the wedding coordinators specifically which I will share in my review.

So, after over a week of no response from the resort i started to look for things.

 

I found all the menus for the restaurants.. does anyone know what i'm suppose to pick? I'm trying to finsih my menu sheets and table seatings. 

 

As well as itinery. Does everyone get married at the same beach? If so which location is that? So i can mark it in my welcome book.

 

Does someone have an example of what they used? would be great! thanks!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
