    We've been quoted about $2100 all in Vancouver - Montego Bay with a stop in Toronto. Or we can book Toronto to Montego for around $1700, and find our own flights to Toronto.

     

    Jamaica as we've found is very difficult to get to from Vancouver! Not many groups fly there, so our options are limited. Especially with us wanting to go in May, it was even more difficult!

      I am getting married at the GP on May 9th, 2014 at 4 PM on the beach!  I'm so glad someone started this post for 2014 brides :)  I have been in contact with people at the GP, so I have received a lot of info from them.  If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask! 

       

      For the Ontario, Canada brides, do you mind me asking who is your travel agent?  And are there flights direct from Toronto?

      Do you have a coordinators email address? What information did you need to get a confirmation for a date and time? I've heard differing stories, some deposits, some passport information, some nothing! Each resort is different  I can't wait to get menus and start locking down decisions!

       

      I'm dealing out of Vancouver, but all our flights are Toronto - Montego Bay. We've been using Marlin Travel, a group/wedding specialist. She's amazing! A good friend of mine got married last year in Mexico and he recommended her. Great decision so far!

        They quoted me 55$ per person for the private buffet. It is a sit down. They set up tables etc on the beach, but it has to be for 50 or more guests. And it depends on the menu, the one we like is $60/person.

          Can someone please send me an email address of a coordinator who is active at the resort? I've sent 2 emails in 3 weeks and no one has responded. We've now started placing our guests deposits through the TA, and I need to make sure that I can secure my date for the ceremony! As well, I need to start looking at menus and deciding what we'd like to do for the reception.

           

          Thanks for any help you can provide!

            weddings.jamaica@palladiumhotelgroup.com is the email I've been getting replies from. The coordinator's name is Erika. She takes awhile to reply, I've been waiting a week to hear back from her since I sent her my deposit for the wedding.

              Thanks, that's the email I had tried previously. I'll try again and see what happens...

                  It's so tough waiting for coordinators to reply! I just want to confirm a date for our wedding, and I can't get an answer! I'll be so sad if our date and time gets taken....

                    Same here. I had originally asked Erika for our date and she said she put it on hold for us tentatively until we sent her a deposit, which I did 3 weeks ago, and I still haven't heard from her or had a charge put through to my credit card. I am so nervous about my date and time being taken! I wish she would reply faster, it is very frustrating.
