The hotel claims that they haven't heard anything about this and there won't be any construction during my wedding in December.  This guy didn't sound too confident though.

My fiance were just at GP in the beginning of March.  While we were there, they showed us where they were going to be building another 700+ rooms.  It will be on the Lady Hamilton side.  It is supposed to be completed by 2013

Anyone look into planning any group excursions??

 

I really want to put together a welcome pamphlet for our guests...with some excursion info and activities and interesting facs about Jamaica.

 Not doing OOT bags though ... i've talked to a lot of people who've attended DW's and they said its a nice gesture but a complete waste of money.. and they didnt use half the stuff because they either brought it themselves or didnt need it. I like the idea of a gift though so i dont know... we might do a small/cheaper excursion instead as a way to thank everyone.

I wish i could ahve found a good deal on those mini Bubba mugs... but then thats a lot to pack. So i'm not sure yet what im going to do... not really having much luck finding a good excursion company that deals specifically with grand palladium. Most say "from montego bay" or "negril" but we're kind of right smack in the middle... so im confused! lol

Sorry I dont think u can get around the vendor fee..unless u book them as part of your group. im booking hair and makepu thru resort spa ... i couldnt justify the extra cost and hassle of using outside vendors. Maybe try adding them to your group list.. maybe they can just pay for a "day pass" instead of the ridiculous vendor fee!!!

My wedding is May 11, 2012.  I'm using an outside photographer, dj, and make-up artist.  We're having to pay the $300 vendor fee for the photographer and the dj.  For make-up/hair we're just having to pay for a day pass.

Thank you for checking queena427!  I hope the resort is big enough that even if there is some construction going on that it won't be too intrusive.

Construction Update:  My planners found out construction will be happening beside Sunset Cove (she has yet to confirm dates BangHead.gif )  but if you look at the map, you can see that its POSSIBLY not a big deal. 
 

Shaecollins:  What DJ did you hire and how much are you spending when you include that $300 vendor fee ?  Anyone know anything about the resort's referral DJ --- Damane Scott, from Irie Jamz ?  Help !~!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • 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
