  1. We had Renaud as well and he was awesome! He got such candid and intimate photos and we literally met him at the beach. It's like he knew exactly what we wanted. He did a great job photo shopping out any people in the water or on the beach so it looked like we were alone in the pictures. It was a second wedding for us so we wanted something simple but he gave us such fantastic photos to lock the memories of our special day.
  2. You can bring your own Ipod with your music loaded up....and they plug it into their sound system for free for the ceremony. I think you need to pay for the sound system if you want it for a reception.
  3. You are being married on my 1st anniversary. We got married on June 29, 2010 at Elegance on the beach at 3:00 pm. What I found is that most of your arrangements are really decided in the meeting with the WC one day before the wedding. Also, you need to be able to go with the flow.....I asked for certain flowers and different ones came, they told me a golf cart would pick me up - it didn't I had to walk across the resort to the beach, they told me photographer would come to the room he didn't, the list goes on. At first I was disappointed but our wedding was beautiful so you need to keep things in perspective as best you can and not be hung up on all the things you ask for. There are many examples of this and I was quite disappointed with the WC I had. I worked with one WC up until I arrived only to find out that she wasn't there the day of my wedding and it appeared didn't tell anyone what we talked about previously. I had my hair done at the spa and they did an awesome job but no one spoke English so have pictures with you. It stayed great in the heat - they recommended that I put it up even though my hair is shoulder length which was a great suggestion and kept it neat the whole day. We got the basic photo package at the hotel and our photographer was excellent. We didn't meet him until I arrived walking down the aisle for the ceremony at the beach but he took pictures that really captured what we wanted. Very candid shots and beautiful views (he photo shopped out all the people on the beach or swimming in the water so it looked like we were the only ones in the photos). Here's a link to my photos on Facebook if you're interested to see what I mean... http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=222524&id=612283734&l=0abdbb9df6 It was a second marriage for us and we just had a small ceremony with immediate family. We had a bunch of other issues as well because we left our papers (the Apostile, etc.) at home that we worked tirelessly to pull together. They will not marry you without the papers so don't forget them. We ended up getting married on the beach on Tuesday as planned in a symbolic ceremony by the WC and then at the Elegance concierge club in our bathing suits by the judge on Saturday. Still waiting for marriage license 4+ months later. Hit me back if you want more details....good luck...a good day to get married Kim

    Majestic Colonial Info

    We are having a civil ceremony at Majestic Elegance and struggling to understand what documents we need despite a call to the DR embassy - any experienced brides who can help would be greatly appreciated. We are both divorced so I think we need: - Birth Certificates - Divorce Decrees - Single Status certificates All are legalized at the DR embassy - do we also need all 3 in both English and Spanish? Do they need to be translated by the consulate? They told us since our divorce decrees are several pages would be really expensive - any ideas on cost? P.S. We are American! Thanks...Kim

I live in my swimsuit all day and lucky if my hair isn't a windblown mess that I didn't want to change for every meal. I know we have to dress up for dinner (a little chilly for damp swimsuits by then) so I can handle that. lol! We were on the Elegance side last year and they wouldn't let my 18 year-old into the Italian place in pants and a shirt with flip flops...told him he needed to have shoes on.

Does anyone have info. on the resort or other local photographers? I am looking for some simple photos since it is our second wedding? im

  8. Can anyone help with some details around the documents needed to be translated and whether you need to send them ahead of time or just bring them along? Also, do you have to have them translated at the consulate or can you have them translated privately and just get them "stamped or something" at the consulate. We are getting married in late June so wondering how long you need to get all this together. We are both divorced so I assume we need divorce decrees, etc...but what else? Does ME give guidance at some point on this stuff? Kim

I'm a bit peeved because we have 14 rooms booked and you need 15 to get a free wedding. I asked if they would consider a discount since we are 1 room short and that's not going to fly lol Can't you find a travel forum where people going to Majestic might post and try to get someone to say they are with you...it's a long shot but there are boards for everything these days so might have a shot at it?

Be prepared to push your stroller everywhere cause there is a lot of walking to get from one end to the other for a little one. It was pretty informal everywhere so the toddlers looked like they were having a good time but I expect you'd have the same challenges as bringing a 20 month old anywhere on vacation. They need their naps, etc. and it is always a bit difficult away from home. Good luck!! Kim
