I was told if you with the tropical package you must choose one entree, appetizer, etc. However, if you go with the Caribbean package, you get a choice of 3 special menus which you can mix and match up to 2 items per course as long as they know ahead of time. These are the menus that include the lobster, veal, lamb, salmon. I didn't see any type of beef on these menus, but that might be an option. Of course, if there is a guest with special diet they will accommodate. I am writing Jascythia today to verify the menu options for the carribean package because I am finally sending out the invites!! So I will let you know if this has changed........ANY VERIFICATION ON THE CHAIR COVERS?

I bet you are getting excited and stressed at the same time. Doesn't that piss you off about the steel drum band. In fact, I was originally quoted $150/hr which I have(hard copy) from their original website back in August. So in 5 months the price has increased 3-4X. This is BS. I am still working on getting the GM email address to discuss these drastic price changes but haven't had any luck. PRICE GOUGING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!
I'm sure everything will be beautiful regardless , its a matter of principle now! Do you know anything definite about the chair covers?

I have also been interested in contacting the manager of the hotel regarding these issues, and we actually talked to him once on the phone. He was going to phone us back in 10 minutes... Maybe he meant Jamaican time?
turk, if you do get in contact with him, I'd be interested in what he has to say.
How can we budget for a wedding when the price keeps changing and increasing after the fact?

Did anybody get confirmation regarding the chair covers & whether it's true that the only meal choices for the Tropical package are from the Poseidon & Pastafarian menus?

What time are you ladies getting married? We picked sunset at 5pm, but I'm hoping we still get a few pictures with the blue skies before sun sets...we might just take a bunch ourselves before the ceremony on the beach.

petals: As I'm the first one getting married out of us I will see if Jascynthia will give me some concrete information regarding chair covers and menu choices. I am going to mention to her that I will be posting on our forum and will ask if she is going to join the forum.
julie5031 - there are 3 packages, the Romance ($1200). I'm getting married at 5:00 p.m. as well and was told that the sun sets at approximately 5:45 so if the wedding starts on time pics should be good, sunset is our favourite time of day.
turk & nbro- excited OMG and stressed YES, but I'm not letting all these details get in the way of our special day. I'm extremely pissed about the steel drum pricing, prices changing in general but if we all look at the small print on their wedding packages it does say "prices subject to change without notice" so I think unless you have something in writing signed by the GM that the price is $150/hr or $300/hr you may be in the same position Sorry!
I will keep you all posted as to my finding

I am travelling to Jamaica this coming Sunday January 11 to visit a few resorts and make my final decision about where my wedding will take place. Right now I am pretty set on the Grand Palladium for a November wedding but i thought I would visit a few others as well. I will be at the GP on Jan 14 for 1 night. I believe there is a wedding there on Jan 15. Does anyone want me to take pictures of anything specific when i am down there? I will be back home on Jan 18 and should have my pictures posted by Jan 20. Let me know.

I am getting married at the Grand Palladium on July 10. Could you possibly take pictures of the Blue Lagoon and Wedding gazebo. Can you also see how many people you think could fit at the gazebo location. I have 75 people coming and from Caroline's pictures it looks a little tight up there.

I'm getting so excited I can't believe it's coming so quickly. I do have everything done on my end just wish I could get some response from Jascynthia.
I'll keep you posted
