Grand Lido Negril Breezes Wedding Day Review!!

Recommended Posts

Hello Ladies.

So here is a review of the Grand Lido Breezes Negril

 

For all of you that are searching the Jamaica forum to pick a wedding location I highly suggest you continue to read on. We had our wedding on October 10th, 2009. We stayed at the Grand Lido for the week arriving on a Wednesday 10/7/09 leaving the following Wednesday 10/14/09. The trip was awesome, the Grand Lido was beautiful, and the service was SPECTACULAR! I really can't say enough about how attentive everyone was. If you are looking for a resort to accomodate a larger crowd serach no further. Anything that I wanted, they made happen, any idea that I had they made sure that it could get done. Our wedding consisted of a group of 66 guests, all close friends and family that traveled and stayed at the resort with us for some point of the week to witness us get married. We happened to do things a little bit differently because we are both Roman Catholic and getting married in a church was very important to us. Through some deligent research, I found a Catholic Chruch 2.5 miles down the road from our resort!~ Mary, Gate of Heaven Catholic Church and they too were fabulous!! The church was so beautiful, perfect size, all wooden - it really was soo intimate and memorable. Everyone loved it. The day of our wedding we had reserved with Clive's Transportation (another vendor that I HIGHLY RECCOMEND) Clive himself picked us up with 2 other drivers and we got 2 larger coach buses, that were in very good condition and a private van for our personal arrivals. They gave us an excellant price as well - and they were very attentive. They were on time and waited for the church to let out to take our group back to the resort. The ceremony started at 3pm - 4pm We then had a private cocktail party on the lower pool deck of the main pool that reached out over the ocean inlet - they wrapped lights around the trees and it was gorgeous! We hired a Saxopohonist to play for the hour - and once again, to no surprise Richard was fantastic! The best I've ever heard or seen! The cocktail hour food was awesome, we had fresh sushi, seared tuna, and a bunch of other things. They set up a private bar and had servers walking around with drinks and food trays! That was from 6-7pm. We then went upstairs and inside for the private recpetion in the Banquet Hall. We hired a DJ - Paul ( I believe he was from Sound Illussions) he played everything that we asked for and even took the time to come to the resort 2 days prior to meet with us and understand our music selections. We paid him cash and he did a really great job - NOBODY stopped dancing once and everyone had a full drink and shots were flowing with the private bartenders that worked our party. The banquet room was beautiful. Purple was my theme color so they manually hung strings light on every wall then covered it with purple sheer cloth and looked great. The wedding reception lasted from 7 -11pm and then they opened the Disco Bar downstairs so we took the After party there - and again, had a blast tearing up the dancefloor!

I know I am going on and on but really this was as is I had a wedding up here in NJ and transplanted it to Jamaica - it really was Stress free and easy. Clithy Chaddenden and Kenroy Calame worked with us and answered to EVERY requests. They really went above and beyond for us, atleast that is how me felt. They really made us feel like royalty at the resort. Stacey Clarke was our photographer and she was so sweet and an awesome person, aggressive with the shots that she was trying to capture, and had so many creative ideas for our personal shoot the day after. That basically sums up our wedding day. We also did a Welcome Dinner on Thursday and cocktail hour on Friday - all of it was fabulous. Well worth every extra penny! We didn't have any quest complain, they have a nurses station on the resort (just incase) and we certainly put her to work lol. They have a great Spa/ and Salon and many people took advantage of massages and mani/pedis. The rooms were clean and big. The beach was pristine, and the water sprots a blast. All in all - It was soooo much fun I could go on and on and if you want more info - please just ask!

Hope this helps making your choice a little bit easier!

Hello All!

 

That is very exciting and promising to hear! I know it is called Breezs Grand Negril now. Had Breezes taken over already when you were there? I am curious as my fiance and I have been looking into different resorts that are affordable for all of our friends and family. Thanks!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
