    Thanks Ally! Im still waiting on prices quotes from my TA :S  Ive seen on here that a few ppl flying out of toronto (which is where we will be flying from) got rates around $1300 per person so Im hoping to get the same...then I can start the planning! Im starting to feel really behind!

      You're welcome Missjade. I just came up with it. I never hear of it before. But I knew I needed to come up with something before I started sending out the invites.

        Hi,  I'm getting prices from my travel agent for Ocean BLue in Jan 2013, does anyone have the website where I can get in contact with the Ocean BLue wedding coordinator for prices and packages?

        This forum is a very helpful tool, because I am completely clueless in which steps to do first! lol

        Thanks!!

              Good luck!  What kind of rate did you get, if you don't mind my asking?

                Hi Girls!  I've confirmed my date 1/19/13 with Grand Palladium but now considering Ocean Blue.  Has anyone compared the two?  Any advice would be GREAT!

                Hi Akimrey!

                 

                I have been to both resorts and consisdered both for the wedding. They are both great but so so different so it really depends on what you are looking for!

                 

                Palladium is HUGE and OB is smaller; both have beautiful beaches, great people, and lots of food varieties. Personally, I liked the beach and the gazebo near the beach better at Palladium but liked the food and smaller atmosphere for the wedding better at OB.

                 

                The ultimate decision for me wedding wise was just that Palladium's packages and add-ons and such just confused me. I was getting different information from different people and couldn't get a clear idea of cost. OB's packages were straightforward and the wedding coordinators responded to me almost immediately.

                 

                I don't think you can go wrong either way!

                 

                Good luck in your decisions and planning! If you have any specific questions about either resort I'm happy to help.

                  Thank you jlb392!

                   

                  My rates are super high... $1620 total per person... hoping enough people book to help reduce the rates in the end.

                    Hey Ladies,

                    I am no longer an Ocean Blue bride and am now a Melia Caribe bride.  Found out the Ocean blue will have half the resort closed in Jan, Feb & March because they will be renovating.  I was so looking forward to ocean blue too :(

                     

                    took my name off the list below:
