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.
