Recommended Posts



We have the same wedding date! I'm a Jamaica bride as well on April 18, 2012!

I've been dealing with our wedding coordinator (Simone and now Loraine) since about June and they have been very helpful for the most part, although sometimes there is a bit of delay in getting responses to us (which our travel agent warned us about) Recently we selected our reception location (Blue Lagoon) and Loraine was very helpful in sending us all the info for the a la cartes, the dining options and even the music options when we asked. I'm finding the best way to deal with them is to write emails with very specific questions - Loraine was good enough to just reply right in the email directly to our inquiries.

 

I was wondering - are any of you brides staying at the resort with your guests? We are doing an all-inclusive for one week with all our guests at the GPJ, but we're wondering if anyone know if we can have the wedding at the GPLH as I know the properties are connected. I found this info really confusing...

 

Thoughts?

I just found out the Blue Lagoon is already booked the day of my wedding. Does anyone have pictures of the Poseidon or have any comments about it? Just wondering if its a nice location, i know its much more casual than the Blue Lagoon, i am so upset right now. Does anyone know if there is a dance floor at the Poseidon? thanks!

Hey - I'm sorry, I didn't even see the title of this thread. We're staying at the Iberostar Rose hall but we're having our wedding off the resort. We've booked through Tropical Weddings Jamaica.

What time and where is your wedding taking place? Are you and your guests all staying at the resort, too?

 

How have you found dealing with this resort?

Congrats and Welcome!!!  I was married at GP back in June and it was absolutely amazing!  I hope your day will be just as perfect!!

 

GPJ and GPLH are the same resort, all restaurants can be shared.  Actually, all the locations for the ceremony are on the LH side.  Only difference b/w the two are the type of rooms and LH doesn't allow kids.

 

Happy Planning!

How many guest are you expecting?  Poseidon is actually quite secluded from the resort.  Though I didn't have my wedding reception there, I believe it would be absolutely beautiful at night.  With the Poseidon, since it is open to other guest, I'm unsure if they would allow a DJ or not.  Definitely ask your WC!!  There is no actual dance floor at Poseidon, but either does the Blue Lagoon.  You make your own (move chairs/tables).

Thanks for the welcome and well wishes! We're really getting excited as the day gets closer and closer :) 

 

I emailed my resort wedding coordinator last week and she informed me of the same thing. We've booked our reception location (which we're super excited about!), now we just need to decide upon our ceremony location, but we're leaning towards the Sunset Beach :)

were also getting married at the GPLH april 14th 2012...i cant believe after all the DIY projects and phone calls to the resort..that its only 5 months away. We booked the blue lagoon for our reception...the only thing i would recommend would be if you have a smaller group you talkto the new W/C to make sure they can do it.. i had to go through this last week as we only wanted 15 ppl to come with us..lucky for us we have a great TA or id still be freaking out lol

Thank you Beachbridein11 ... I feel much better about the location. I was also able to finally find a few more pictures of what The Posiedon actually looks like (inside and out) from what you remember, was it on the smaller side? It looks like you chose the Waves of Love wedding package, which is what i picked as well. I was wondering who you worked with for your flowers/center pieces for the reception. Did you find it to be expensive? Also, are you able to add some decor to match your style at the reception (ie: white hanging paper lanterns etc.) Sorry for all the questions but you are THE most helpful person! All of your ideas and suggestions are SO helpful!
