Grand Palladium Jamaica Reception Setup (Blue Lagoon) & Questions

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies!!

 

 I've been sneaking around these boards for a while now and I finally have some solid questions for those who have gotten married at GP Jamaica or plan on it. I'll be there for our wedding November 12-19 (wedding is Nov. 15 on the beach at 4pm). Does anyone have any ideas for the table setup at the Blue Lagoon? I have 50 guests and I want the dance floor to be incorporated into the whole flow not just off to the side. Did you have much trouble getting what you wanted setup? Any pictures would be a huge help!!

 

 

Did any of you successfully negotiate prices with the resort in terms of reception and ceremony? I have 50 guests so for the ceremony they charge 20$ extra per person which equals approx. 2350$ for my ceremony alone. Seems a little silly. Does anyone else feel like considering the amount of revenue we are bringing to the resort these charges should be negotiable or lowered? I mean 20$ per person to set up an extra chair and a piece of cake? Just been weighing on my mind a bit.

 

 

Thanks for your help!

Kim

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
