Gave me different flowers than we'd agreed upon for the bridesmaid bouquets, gave me just white lilies in a vase for our centerpiece, and then told us we only had the pool bar for an hour when I'd been communicating with Sandra for months and had agreed upon 4 hours. She also showed up late for the wedding so everything started late. Didn't see her at all during all the wedding stuff. We had to do everything ourselves. She's very very young, and there's alot of miscommunications with her. Very disappointed I wasn't assigned the WC I'd been emailing with the entire time!
  2. Thanks so much for all the info! I'm booking the cruise and can't wait!

    weather in dr?

    Does anyone know how the summer months are? I'm getting married at the beginning of August and am hoping it's not unbearably hot!
  4. Hey Josh - Is the Steakhouse terrace the same at the Elegance? Please let me know when you have photos up! A bride on a facebook group mentioned that they allowed her to do the option of the free dinner and then just rent the terrace of the restaurant for dancing, cake cutting, etc. Have you seen this there?
  5. Erin - how did you pay the rest of the balance? Did you have to do the same thing? I just thought it was a little weird in this day and age of credit cards.
  6. Kandy - thanks so much for the positive review - I just received the wording from him and it's beautiful! I look forward to using him for our wedding!
  7. Did anyone do the wire transfer they require? I've never done that before and honestly a little nervous about it...

    Has anyone gone directly to the embassy in NYC to get theirs legalized? How much did all the translation, etc. come out to be total? I also heard it takes up to 2 months to get back your marriage certificate from the resort... has anyone run into this?
  9. The pics look beautiful---thanks so much for sharing!
  10. Hi lrfriendly, how much does your cruise cost per person? I'm looking into doing a sunset cruise for our wedding party the day before...

    Reception- Majestic Colonial

    Hi Christina! If you join the Facebook group, Majestic Colonial Brides, there is TONS of pics and info on there. I've read that many people have had the "included" dinner at one of the restaurants and it's felt private because they sectioned off the table with some plants. I've also seen pictures of how they've decorated it, and it's very pretty, and included! For the "private" dinner for the group at one of the bars, beach, pool etc. it came out to be close to $70 with the tax per person. I couldn't justify spending all this money on the same food you could get in the restaurants (plus it's all-inclusive!). What we're doing after dinner though, is renting the Parrot Bar, which is outside, for $300 for setup plus $150 for the sound system. There we will do our cake cutting, and hook up our ipod to dance! There's an open bar option, but there's a bar within a few feet our TA said, so we'll just have people walk to get drinks since teh open bar was fairly expensive.

    Majestic elegance brides nervous?

    I've been working with their wedding planner, Sandra for the past few months. She's very nice and helpful, and says the Elegance will be a step above the Colonial. The Colonial already has a stellar reputation, so I'm hoping the same will go for the Elegance. There's a photographer who is going to be taking photos of the property towards the end of the month, so I can let you know once I get those!
