    I have not heard much about the restaurants but at our resort last year only a select few required reservations... Sorry that's not much help. Happy planning to all of you can't wait to see pictures of those of you getting married before me!

      I was at GPLH last May for a wedding and we got in fine for the restaurants. Although upon registering for our room I requested to get in right away for the list. In addition at that time when you are part of the wedding party you can get VIP which got us in to the restaurants first. Best advice is to ask when you get there, and be reaaaal nice to the front desk.

       

      This hotel is lovely and you will all have a great time. We did not choose this one as our friend just got married there.

            Hi Meaghan!

             

            Our wedding is booked for May 10, 2012... ceremony at 2pm in the garden gazebo and our reception is at the Blue Lagoon (private).
             

            I'm planning on making very basic programs for the wedding day ... i know i take comfort in knowing what the plan is when i go to a wedding.

             

            I'm also hoping to plan a few fun activities throughout the week .. like reserve the volleyball nets one day for a group game and hopefully plan a couple of excursions for some local sightseeing.

            What about you ladies? Dates, plans, ideas?

             

            Are you making programs for the wedding day or itinerary's for the entire trip including optional golf tournaments etc? Any tips!

              Hey JLCB,

               

              I'm getting married in May too!!!!!!!!!!!!!! May 10 to be exact... it's too bad we will just miss each other. We are travelling May 6-12 ...so getting married towards the end of the trip.

               

              What made you book the photo/video package??? We have 3 guests who do semi-professional photos so we were hoping that would be enough.. but im really worried they will miss certain shots and i hate to ask them to sacrifice their whole day like that...

              I just cant justify the over $2000 cost for professional photographers to come on the resort for ONE day.... its just sooooooo expensive....

                Hi everyone!  I'm a 2012 Palladium Bride!  We're getting married on May 11th at 4:00.  I CANNOT WAIT!  We actually stayed at this resort in May of 2011 and loved it.  While we were there we kept talking about what a beautiful place it would be to get married.  We were engaged in June and there was never any question as to where our wedding would be!  I've just recently started the 'planning' process.  My biggest complaint so far is the lack of responsiveness from the Wedding Coordinators at the resort!  I have to keep reminding myself that it's a slower, more laid back way of life there.  One of the things I LOVED about Jamaica!

                  Alysia85- WE decided to do the wedding/video package because I didnt want to have to worry about any of the guests missing anything, or not being able to actually watch the wedding because they were focusing on pictures. I myself do professional pictures so I am quite picky!!!! lol. I also know someone who had her friend take her wedding pictures and they got ruined and thats just not a good situation. But if you have 3 people coming im sure at least one of them will get every part of your special day! Ours is only so expensive because we are doing pictures day of then we are having a photoshoot the day after in the ocean on horseback so that made our package kind of pricey then my soon to be mother in law offered to pay for the video so that everyone who cant come can see it. I know that with true colors photography there was packages as low in price as like 1200 if you are really worried. They have a website and a blog where judine posts their weddings they are doing and i love following it. Makes me excited to get married there!!!!

                   

                  What made you choose the grand palladium? and how many guests do you have coming? We are not arriving till the 15th so we will miss each other!!!!! all of our guests are arriving the 12th. I am very excited as it gets closer. you said you chose the garden gazebo? It looks gorgeous. I wouldnt worry about the whole photo thing to much not good to stress and as they say in jamaica "its no problem mon" lol if you are worried email them and ask about the smaller photo packages!!!

                   

                  What wedding packages did everyone choose? I did the island Pearl. Beach location.
