        Hi,
        I just called and was told that because I have 20-30 guests, I could book either the blue lagoon on the poseidon for my dinner. I would have a set menu. Does anyone know which one is nicer to have the reception in? I'm not planning on making it private.

        Also, I should be getting the menus in my e-mail soon. I'll post them once I receive them!

          Try reading old posts from Petals, she did a planning thread and included pictures of both locations. From the pictures it appears the Poseidon is a lot smaller but that could just be the angle of the picture.

          Also when you spoke to someone today, did they quote you any prices for the reception? I am still trying to understand the reception costs. If anyone can help here, I would appreciate it.

            Here is all the restaurant menus. If you have a larger group (mine is 20-30), then you have to pick a set menu. You can choose items all from 1 restaurant's menu. You get 1 appetizer, 1 soup, 2 entrees and a dessert. You don't have to be seated in that restaurant to get that particular restaurant's menu.

              Here is the new 2010 Grand Palladium Wedding Guide.

              Basically, the "Just Married Package" is really skimpy. You don't get any flowers or decorations for the ceremony.

              The "Tropical Package" is in my view the best deal for the money. You get flowers and decorations for the ceremony, plus cake and sparkling wine for toasting after the ceremony. All the packages beyond that one provide benefits for the bride and groom and not for the guests, so I don't think they're worth the money.

                My ceremony is at 12:00 (not by choice, they were completely booked up for the rest of the day. Does anyone know if you can have a lunchtime reception?

                Also, can anyone recommend a reputable catamaran company that I could charter?


                What does everyone think of this plan?

                    I definitely would say the Blue Lagoon is nicer.... It overlooks the pool and had a great oceanview. the Poseidon was a lot smaller and didn't really have a view as it was all blocked by trees.

                    If you don't want to go private, you can do your reception at any of the specialty restaurants, also. But I definitely think the additional $300 for the Blue Lagoon was worth it.

                      Zuzelh,
                      Since I have lost all contact with Nina and Lori again can I ask you some more questions:

                      1) Did your reception at the Blue Lagoon include an open bar or is that an additional fee?

                      2) How were your tables deocorated, did every table include a flower centerpiece? Did you pay extra for that?

                      3) I provided my credit card information to Nina and I see they charged my cc but will I be getting an actual "contract" to sign and return?

                      Any help will be much appreciated.

                      Thanks
                      Tiffany
