    Haha no one has booked yet with us either but guests don't feel the urgency I don't think!! I agree --- for an all inclusive , we aren't going to do the private reception either, it's soo much $$$ considering we all just want to go eat and party after anyways. I just hate I'll be missing a few traditional things like our first dance etc- my only concern of Not having a reception ... but I'm still excited and can't wait, Jamaica is beautiful! One more question, did u wire money to their Miami bank?

     

    I did not have to wire anything. Our travel agent is taking care of getting the down payment to them.  I am sure you could request a song to be played at the Infiniti Bar that night!  :)

      Thank you Kelly

       

      I've been put in touch with an American agent atm.

       

      She has been amazing so far and once she starts work I will review her too.

        Hi All,

         

        I am ordering my dress this week and I am getting very excited.  I will be married at GPLH on April 18, 2013 at 4:00 p.m. at the Gazebo.  Reception to follow at the blue lagoon.  I am trying to decide on a cocktail hour after the ceremony - we have children attending and I am worried that people may need a snack before 6 pm dinner - especially if the dinner is running late.  Are they very on time there?  Or is everyone on "Jamaican time"?

          Hey ladies, 

          Does anyone know the cost of bringing in an outside vendor the day of the wedding? What about having a guest that is not staying at the resort; obviously we will have to pay for their dinner and spot at the reception but is there an additional cost as well? We have 3 ppl attending our wedding that will not be staying with us on the resort. at this point we are paying $65 each for them already...really hoping it is not more!

              This thread has been SO helpful!

               

              I read all 81 posts and didn't see anyone ask this, so I thought I would try:

              How far in advance are you sending out STDs and invites? What kind of information are you including in your invites?

                    Congrats Seirra! You look stunning. I am getting married Nov 24 at 2 pm and having a private reception at the Poseidon. Who was your co-coordinator? Mine is Nikesha and she has been great so far. How did you find the resort and the beach(es) over all? Thanks!

                      Hi! I have a few guests coming for the day and I was told it is $75 USD for an event pass. That gives them access for the duration of the event.
