Grand Palladium Jamaica/Lady Hamilton - 2011 Brides!

Recommended Posts

Hi and Welcome Canadiangirl!  I have a question... have you already put a deposit down on your photographer?  If not, please search the forum for digitalmemories and read the reviews.  I'm unsure how important pictures are to you, but if they are... cheaper is not always the way to go.  I just wanted to give you a heads up from an experience of another bride.

 

I too am a Waves of Love Bride!  35 days for me!!  Yea!!!

You asked hd about adding color to the wedding cake.  You can always add flowers.  I would send your assigned WC that question.

 

Congrats and Happy Planning!

The reason I ask, is that my FI and I found a lady who is in Jamaica and she has great photo's and is cheeper for what you get than the resort.

 

do you know....can you add things to the wedding cake? my FI wants more color lol (and Im the girl lol)

lets keep in touch and maybe we can share info and ideas....hope your wedding is beautiful

Hi CanadianGirl,

 

I am going with the resort photographer, and I am actually very excited about using them!  They have been extremely responsive and helpful, and Judine has called me several times instead of emailing back.  She has even helped me with things involving wedding planning support with the resort.  I know they have gotten a couple of bad reviews on this site, but so has the Grand Palladium.  True Colours (resort photographer) has added new/ recent photos (from Grand Palladium weddings) to their website and blog, and I love them!  I like the idea that they work at the resort on a regular basis, so I they know the staff well and are accustomed to working together.  Also, I like that they will know where all the best spots for pictures are and the best lighting, etc.  They have also thrown in a few freebies in addition to the Island Deluxe package we decided to go with.  Check out their blog and website pictures:

As far as the cake, I am pretty sure that the cake they provide has flowers on it, but you can definitely pay extra for more flowers.  Or, you can even bring something from home to have added to your cake.  In one of the albums on the True Colours site (James & Jamie I believe) they had brought cake toppers from home. 

 

Hope this information helps!

hello brides and brides to be. i just got married here in jamaica last night at the GP. I want to post this and let you know one thing and one thing only. YOUR WEDDING IS GOING TO BE AWESOME. Dont stress or worry about anything. Everthing is going to be taken care of and sorted out perfectly. If you selected Jamaica as your country of choice know what you are visiting a country full of happy, laid back and generous people. The wait staff here is amazing. They are so very helpful and will ensure that your wedding not only runs smooth but that your and your fiance are treated like a prince and princess for the day.  I wont write a full review but I just wanted to jump online and tell you guys not to worry. I know I came on here a week or so ago a little stressed and worried that simone our wedding coordinator may not be on top of her "A" game. That couldnt be further from the truth. Simone is perfect and will be make sure everything runs smooth. if anyone has any questions email me! ojhendrix@gmail.com. Ill be back in the states in a few days!

Okay Help my fellow GP Brides!!  Who has a copy of the Flower Brochure?!  I thought I was set on my choices, so I deleted it and now I'm upgrading my bouquet and would like to see options! 

 

I emailed my WC, but I was hoping to get this figured out over the weekend and we all know how their response time works! :)

 

Thank you!!!

    • 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.
