    Anyone having less than 30-35 people?  What are your plans?  I am hesitant about having a private reception.

      I'm hoping to have around 30. I have already booked a private reception as it was really important to me. It really depends on your preference and what is important to you. One of the reasons we chose the grand palladium was because we could have a private reception and there wasn't a minimum.

        I was expecting 45-50.  So now Im thinking if its worth it.  And wonder if it will be boring.

          I definitely don't think it will be boring!  It's your wedding!!  What type of entertainment are you having for the reception?

            We had 32 people at our reception. It was the best reception I have ever been to! All of the guests raved about it. Steel drum first hour. Fire show second hour. Dj for the rest of the reception. If you have entrainment, the private reception is worth it. If you are just having dinner, I would not spend the extra money for the private reception. Remember, you are only doing this once. Make it great!!!

                  first off congrats and I am planing on having my wedding at the GP also I'm just having a problem getting all the pricing right. I am also looking to have around about the same amount of guest as you are, and was wondering what package are you going to go with and did you get the pricing on the reception if you are going to have one? Also can you let me know any more helpful info you have found out through contacting with them? Please Help

                    Not exactly sure who you were asking, but here's what I'm doing...

                     

                    We will be having b/w 40-50 people.  We decided on the Waves of Love Package and I'm so excited about it!  The price on the website includes everything listed for 8 people.  Additional is $20/pp (includes the extra setup, champagne, cake, etc.).  If you want a private receptions it's $45/pp (4 course meal w/full bar).

                     

                    Best way to contact is through email.  They take a couple days to respond, mostly due to when your wedding is.  The closer it is, the quicker response.  Island time mon!

                      Hi everyone. Thanks for all the great information. I have always wanted a destination wedding and when I got engage two years ago we started planning one. However, my mother through a fit and I of course gave in and decided to have the traditional wedding here in NJ.  Well, now that I'm 8 months away from my wedding, my FI and I have decided to cancel our "traditional" wedding here and are doing our dream wedding in Jamaica. We are paying for our wedding and feel that it should be about our wants and not anyone elses. My mothers not speaking to me, but thats a whole other story I'm not going to get into here...So, booked my wedding at GPJ on 11/4/11. Our original wedding date was 11/11/11 but seeing as we're booking so late we cant get that.  The only availabe times they had on 11/4/11 were 10am and 12pm. We booked the 12pm. Does anyone have any experience with an afternoon wedding?? Besides it being unbearably hot, will it be weird to have a cocktail hour afterwards at 1??? And then the reception to follow? I just feel like it will be a lunch reception.  I guess we can always go out to the disco afterwards...any thoughts?? thanks so much!!
