    I am booking from Toronto to Montego Bay for our Feb 2-9, 2013 wedding. We are using Valerie from Battlefield travel in Stoney Creek and we are not going to pay near that much! We wanted our guests to pay under $1500 for a week and we're pretty sure that will happen (*crossing my fingers*) She told me prices drop about 9 months before you book, however; our prices have not dropped yet. You are getting married in prime "spring breakers" time, so it may be a bit higher then. If you can get a hold of Valerie she should be able to give you a good deal! Hope this helps.

      Hey Ladies-


      First of all, congratulations!! I am so jealous and excited for all of you Grand Palladium Brides.  We got married a month ago TODAY at the GP and LOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVEEEEDDDDDDD every second of our 8 day trip- and so did our 42 guests.  Everything about the entire week was perfect and our wedding day was more than we could have ever dreamed!!!  I know the planning is stressful and sucks but i promise it is all worth it.  The day goes by SO fast so enjoy it- the planning is worth it!!!  Just so you know, I used Damane Scott of Irie Jamz Entertainment
      (876-458-3864 - iriejamzmusic@yahoo.com - www.iriejamzjamaica.com) and thought they were fantastic!  Everything about our day was perfect, looking back I wouldn't change one thing (except maybe not having my makeup done at the spa) and wish you all the best of luck!! Feel free to email me mandycovault@gmail.com if you have any questions- I'd be happy to help.  Good luck and have fun!!

        I just looked these up and they look really cool. Such a great idea for an all-inclusive!! And very reasonable! Thanks for the idea.

            I really hope the construction is finished by 2013. We're getting married in Feb 2013 and it would be awesome to have a beautiful, quiet environment.

              Were getting married Jan 30, 2013!!!!  I chose the Waves of Love package but changed my colours to green and purple.  Were getting married on the beach @ 4pm and then reception to follow at the blue lagoon @ 6pm.  I have still yet to determine my entertainment and pictures.

                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 Meaghan, I'm getting married Feb 2013 at GPLH at 4pm on the beach. Still deciding whether we are going to have a private reception or not. What are you paying for your private reception? I have seen different prices, like $20 a head (after 8 ppl) for a place setting at our wedding packages theme and somewhere else I read about a $25/person food charge??? I can't fathom paying $45 a head for my guest to eat at an all-inclusive resort. I'd appreciate any insight. 


                I am going to make an itinerary with optional activities, a 'Carter vs.McInnis' beach volleyball game, Rick's cafe, Dunn River Fall's, etc. We are going to rent a boat for a cocktail hour after the ceremony.

                  What wedding planner are you using? How have you finalized so much so quickly? I haven't heard from Corita regarding any of my questions. I am so glad you can change your 'Waves of Love' colours! We are getting the same package and want pink and white colours, and we are also getting married at 4pm on the beach. . .one week later!!! I am excited to hear how your planning continues to evolve. How much are you paying (per person) for a private reception? We are using Lindsay A. Moleirinho as our photographer. . .her website looks awesome and her prices are very reasonable.                                ( www.photosbylam.com )

                    Hello, I'm a newbie and im looking to get married next year around May. I've been trying to reach out to the GPLH and its been horrible. The phone rings and no one picks up and i email them and do not get a reply. Do any of you ladies have a direct contact that i can reach out to?

                      Hey ladies!


                      Thanks for the replies on hair, makeup, and dj !


                      I just got back from Grand Palladium Jamaica - went for a pre-wedding visit !

                      It's a stunning property with amazing people. The food was pretty good too! I'm really happy I went... it TOTALLY put my mind at ease and now I'm even MORE excited that I picked this resort for my destination wedding! I got to see all the ceremony sites and reception areas... so happy with the choices we made after seeing them first hand.  There are so many gorgeous places on this resort !!!


                      I also met with the DJ from Irie Jams (Damane) he was awesome too - so we're definitely hiring him. Gotta decide later if I want to upgrade the package to add an MC and some up-lighting on the pillars of the Blue Lagoon.


                      I'm looking into photography now. Our Toronto photographers bailed on us unexpectedly, just before we signed the deal, so now I'm on the hunt again! While I was at the wedding office in JA, I saw a little album from TRUE COLOURS photography.  Just googled them and I think I really like their stuff. Have any of you used them?  If so, what were your honest opinions of the photos you got?


                      Also - please please please vote for my fiance and I! We only have three more days to vote daily , to help me win the wedding dress of my dreams from Kleinfeld's in NYC !!!  Thanks ladies!!
