    Hi Everyone,

    My contact person at GP Jamaica is Kimberly, and I've found her extremely helpful so far. Her responses to my queries are extremely prompt. We are also interested in the Ruby Package for $2000.00 and Kimperly told me the $20 extra cost per person (after the first 8 people) applies to the ceremony only.

    For the private reception, the charge is $45 per adult. As I will have lots of children at my wedding, I asked for the specifics regarding the charges for children. She explained the pricing is as follows:

    Children under 3: free
    Children 3 to 12: $22.50 (half the cost of an adult)
    Youths 13 - 18: $45.00 (same as adults)

    As the others have mentioned, no mention of any room rental fee. I specifically asked about this, and she said the charge is now per person.

    I've sent off my information to book my date and I'm just waiting for their reply.

    I'm so excited!!

    :)

      All of my emails are to Nina and answered by Nina. It sounds like they are dividing up the responsibilities.

        Just as an FYI - my photographer, who is a local Jamaican photographer (SunGold) told me she usually books a room at GP to alleviate any issues with the resort. Unfortunately the place is sold out the night of my wedding but she said it won't be a problem - but we will need to do the TTD session somewhere other than the hotel, which is fine with me - I'm hoping to do it at one of the Falls! So if you are worried about using a local photographer - just have them book a room - then they are a guest and they can't say anything.

          So we should book the room for the photographer?

            My photographer was booking her own room. She said that's what she does. it's just something to maybe mention if you're using a Jamaican photographer - maybe they all do that to get out of the vendor fees.

              Whew...I feel better now. All my conversations have been with Nina too but I hadn't reached out to her in over a month so I wasn't sure if things had changed again. Seems like they are well staffed now...which is great news to hear!

              Also, is anyone planning on bringing their own DJ? I plan to hire a local DJ but am not sure if they are enforcing a vendor fee on outside DJ's.

                I have not asked Nina myself about hiring an outside DJ. I read a post on this forum from a previous bride. She said that she had hired an outside DJ and was told it was not allowed. I would check with Nina.

                  OK thanks for the heads up, I will be sure to confirm the DJ policy with Nina ASAP.

                    I am interested in what they have to say about that, as my fiance runs an entertainment company and we will have a number of DJs coming down. We wanted to just rent the equipment and supply our own DJs. Their price for DJ services at the resort is proposterous.

                      I asked about the DJ equipment and the price is USD$210.00 per hour.
