2013 Grande Palladium Resort Jamaica Brides

Recommended Posts

I am planning on getting married at GP in June 2013. I was wondering what everyone did for save the dates? I would also love to hear about the construction...I haven't contacted the WC yet but will be doing that real soon. I am glad to have found some other 2013 brides to compare notes with.

We did post cards from wedding paper diva's and added a magnet that we made of an old jamaica map.  We had the magnets printed by Vista print.  We are doing boarding passes for our invites

Hey ladies!

 

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!!

PS.... the wedding planners there are swamped right now. But if you wait till June (rainy season begins) they should have more time on their hands. Good luck!

 

PPS.... as for construction, I dont think this is gonna be a big deal whenever they begin. The resort is MASSIVE. So I doubt the construction will be noticable at all.

We are getting married May 2 2013! We are doing a 4pm beach wedding and so far everything else is up in the air. Does anyone know what the Poseidon looks like? Anyone doing their reception there? We are contemplating the 2 venues but have no clue about the Poseidon.

Its soo private on sunset cove beach and has amazing sunset views! Can't wait! the resort sent me some photos I can pass along if you like! maybe DM your email?

Hello ladies!

 

I'm considering Grande Palladium for our wedding location... just got engaged but I'm super excited to start planning.

 

I have one big question...

 

In these packages, is the reception included??  I'm a rookie... help!  Or is it an extra fee?

Congrats!!! I'm excited about our big day there and ive found the planning to be fun!

There is an extra fee! We are paying $45 per person for the reception, and then there is the cost of an ipod stand or DJ and entertainment! what ever you decide to do!

Courtbestbride-if you could pass on photos of the Poseidon that would be awesome! angebernard@hotmail.com

I have already booked the Blue Lagoon but may be able to change it if I change my mind I suppose? 

I heard the Poseidon had amazing sunsets, but thats all I heard. I do love the look of the Blue Lagoon. 

Are you bringing any extra decorations with you? Or just going with what the resort does? When is your date? 

Thanks so much!

hi ladies! From my perspective as a photographer (and having planned my own destination wedding and hiring 3 photographers lol) I would certainly agree photos are the most important and if you must resort to a hotel photographer, to do your research.. :-/ And don't worry about paying for an outside photographer with additional expenses on top of it all, since some like myself, will include all of that in your package. Also, since I am always a paying a guest at whatever resort my couples choose, they have not had to deal with paying additional outside vendor fees (they are making more money by having me as a guest anyway!) 

 

My most recent destination wedding from last month in Punta Cana just made it up on Style Me Pretty, so check it out :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
