Hello my name is Deanna. Im getting married November 29th, 2009 in Lucea, Jamaica @ The Grand Palladium - Lady Hamilton Spa and Resort. My fiance and I only decided on a date a week ago (August 21, 2009) we realize that this will eliminate most of our friends and family from attending but we just needed some positive memories before the year ended. My fiance lost both his parents (mom 60 and dad 63) in the last 10 months, we cancelled our original wedding plans, and had thought we might wait a year or two but all of a sudden he wants the wedding to happen sooner than later. We are both in our 40's so the need for a large group is really not a requirement.


All that being said I have exactly 13 weeks to the wedding and 12 weeks till we depart. No panic on this end....right

Welcome and congrats! GPLH looks amazing! There's been a few reviews in recent months. Do a search and see what pops up. I havent been, but we drove by on our way to Negril in April. It's pretty impressive looking from the road and from the pics Ive seen! Good choice and happy planning!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
