Hello Grand Paladium Jamaica Brides to be

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

My name is Khloe and we are getting married May 13th 2010, at the beautiful Grand Paladium and Lady Hamilton Resort and Spa. We were lucky enough to go down last May to check out the resort. If you are also getting married here and have any questions. I would be happy to help. We have been through a lot of problems with the other WC and flight info, so I would like to help other people going what we already went through. Thankfully everything is going smoothly nowsmile72.gif

Hello fellow Palladium Bride! I will be getting married there on April 20th. I was wondering if you have made any scheduled plans for after your dinner, should I try and book our dinner location ahead of time (it's supposed to be at the beach restaurant)?....are there any options for a beach party or something after dinner?...what are your plans for the evening party? I'm trying to just let most things happen once I get there, figure that's why we have chosen a destination (to avoid all the pre-planning and drama). Any suggestions of things we should definitely ask before we arrive would be greatly appreciated! Have fun planning!

Hello fellow Palladium Brides! Khloe I am getting married the day before you :)

 

luv2sun, we are having our wedding on the beach at 4:00pm. I wanted it earlier so that we could get some nice sunset pics after the wedding.

 

We are going to suggest to the guests to go to one of the bars for cocktails while we are taking pictures and we will meet them there after.

 

We have booked the Blue Lagoon from 7-10. We were going to rent the speakers and microphone until they quoted us a price of 500 to rent them....which is more than the Blue Lagoon rental(300)! We are now considering bringing a portable speaker system with us but we are just ironing out all the problems/issues that may arise with that.

 

After the Reception we are planning on going to the Infinity Lobby Bar where they have

Live music every day 9:30pm - 12:30pm.....at some point we are going to head to the Disco too :) they are open from 11:00pm – 2:00am.

We chose the 4pm time as well. The coordinator said the sun should set around 5:30 - 6 and since our ceremony will be short we should have plenty of time for pics. My photographer will have a list and be telling everyone what to do so I'm trusting we'll fit it all in. We want sunset pics too and will likely do "trashing" pics the next day anyways. I want everyone to enjoy a full day at the beach/pool before the wedding to get the most of their day. Sounds like I better get in touch with the wedding coordinator to at least confirm where we're having dinner since we paid for the beach restaurant (is that the Blue Lagoon?).

Only 78 more days, I gotta get a few details down and then relax!

Hey ladies! I was just confirming some prices ahead of time so we don't fall off our chairs when we get down there so I was a little shocked that it was $50pp for anymore than 8 people, for some reason I thought it was $15 but I think that's just for anyone over 8ppl. Is this what everyone has been quoted as well? I can't find the extra person price listed anywhere so just thought I'd do a quick poll. So far we have 27 people so it isn't actually that bad when you multiply it all out. :)

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
