Recommended Posts

Thanks for the review.  Its always great to hear from someone that got married there.  We are thinking of doing the Jamaican Buffet since we have 51 people going. Is anyone's wedding around March 1, 2013?

We are getting married March, 8th.  We will arrive on the 5th.  You must be so excited.  Have you been contacted by the WC yet?  I can't get them to respond to me.

Dont worry happyfamily, They may not have responded to you yet because your wedding is so far away. They literally will not finalize/plan your wedding until you actually get to Jamaica. As long as your date is reserved and your dinner reservation (which restaurant) you want is in place you should be okay... everything else gets done what seems like very last minute for us... but on time for them.

I think the only other thing we reserved in advance was the dinner menu 1 month in advance and the steel drum band and zurielamaka show.. which we reserved 2 weeks before we left.

I have not heard from her in a few weeks.  I guess I'm just waiting patiently to see what comes next.  Even though I'm super excited and anxious!!!  I am getting all the small things done that I can in the mean time :)

Thank you so much for the information.   You have made me feel much better.  :)  Nothing like an anxious bride....

I booked hair and airbrush makeup through Rashel. She was booked for my day... so I booked her assistant for airbrush.. Antoinette Bailey. She was amazing. Check out my pictures in my profile.

 

The airbrush makeup was well worth it!!!

Will the airbrush last in the heat?  My wedding is at 4pm but there will be a lot of dancing at the reception and I don't want my makeup to look weird.

IMPORTANT READ: For anyone having doubts about having your wedding at GPLH, STOP DOUBTING AND JUST DO IT!! :-)  I just had my wedding here on 12/8/12 and it was wonderful.  Everytime I think about it, I start smiling.  We had over 50 guests and had SO MUCH FUN.  Our guests ranged from 3 years old to 85 years old and everyone had a great time.  So many guests have told me that this was the best vacation, let alone wedding, they had ever been to.  We would definitely return to this resort.  Excellent choice for a wedding, especially for a larger wedding party like ours.  See my review here.

What did you do for centerpieces? We are having our reception at the Poseidon because we saw the threads on here complaining about the noise from the band upstairs and my guests love to dance hence we are getting a DJ. I know they move the flowers to the reception, was that enough? We are getting the waves of love package. I figure even if someone had there reception at the blue lagoon, they may have though about centerpieces too? Thanks

YES!!!! Normal makeup will sweat off and run down your face... with airbrush you dont even feel like you're wearing anything at all.. its so lightweight and it lasted ALLLL day and ALLL night. My ceremony was at 2pm and dinner was at 6pm ... it was blistering hot and i had a heavy dress on but my makeup stayed all day and night.

 

Having said that.... my eye makeup/eyeshadow did melt off a little so i re-touched that up between the ceremony and reception with my own makeup .... and you could bring a powder ...my face did get a BIT ... llike a little bit shiny right at the end of the night..after all the dancing. Just a quick dusting of powder would help keep it matte ... but i didnt do that.

 

I literally had to scrub my face for 20 mins to get the makeup off... and I was still scrubbing it off the next morning.

I felt the same way... kind of got anxious and i didnt want to miss out on booking anything.

But as soon as you get there and see how it works youll be like ohhh its sooo not worth stressing about annnnything.

Dont worry.. they wont forget about you :)

Is it true that they guys have to wear pants to the dinner restaurants or can they wear nice dress shorts?  We are going to be there for about 2 weeks and want to try all the places I'm just trying to figure out what to all pack and don't want to be overloaded.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
