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. :)

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
