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!

Here is a link to some of my beach pictures.

i wore flat sandals and my hubby wore shoes.

I'm also putting the link to my Oot Bag pictures, which has the card I gave out to my guests that had a map of the resort on one side and an itinerary on the other.

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
