This past year has been an emotional rollercoaster. We put a deposit down for Royalton for October but now with the CAD dollar being so crappy we may have to completely change. We are being suggested Jewel as its comparable (as per our agent) but my heart is broken that I may not get my dream wedding :(

I was looking to get married in Jamaica and I had a pretty tight budget. I did manage to find the Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort and Spa to be pretty affordable. It is about 30 minutes from Montego Bay in Lucea. On cheapcaribbean.com I found flight = hotel for 5 nights for $1887 (it has gone up slightly since). And another thing I found EXTREMELY helpful was the facebook group of ladies that have gotten married at the GP Jamaica! They answered so many more of my questions than the WC at the resort ever did! The facebook name of the group was Grand Palladium Jamaica Destination Wedding. If you choose to become part of the group the Admin will send you a message to make sure you are not a spammer and most likely it will go to your "other" folder in facebook messages (so you wont get a notification). Her name is Liana and I found her sooooo helpful! 


Good luck!!!!!!

Just wanted to keep this forum going and update everyone on my progress thus far. I decided to go with the Iberostar Grand due to the one wedding per day. I read horror stories of weddings being rushed due to rain and or multiple weddings overlapping at Sandals. You only get one wedding day so why take the risk. So much to do so little time.


What have you completed so far? If you've already had your wedding please share your pros and cons, I would love to hear all about it and see pictures if you have any of course!

Jamaica has some wonderful venues but just be aware of the ramped marijuana use - if there are children attending it may be a problem - read the reviews on trip advisor/monarc to see what other have to say
