  1. Hi Jf Brides, Happy planning to you all. Our wedding day is coming up FAST (May 25, 2013) and we are heading to the DR this Monday. WOW, I can't believe our wedding day is already here. Any who, I've contacted Mayte a ton of times regarding the wedding total and NOTHING. I called her twice and she keeps saying "today". I'm get a little uneasy, since we have no clue to what the total is. Did anyone else have this issue? And can we pay with card card or cash only? Thank you for your help.
  2. Yes, thank you for asking. If anyone needs information about documents needed to get married in a catholic church, let me know
  3. Hi JF brides, I have a question for anyone who will have or had a catholic ceremony in the DR. We have reserved the church Capilla de Nuestra senora Del Pillar, but am having issues trying to get information on what documents are required and what my groom (who is not catholic) will need. HELP!!! lol. Happy planning gals!!! p.s. I love this sight! you guys are amazing!
  4. Thank you AquaCait! I will DEF call them. Not a bad idea!
  5. You are great!! Thank you for everything and taking the time to share all this information with me. We are on the East Coast as well, so hopefully she will be able to help us as much as she' helped you. Priceline: Yes, there is a place where you can select the # of people traveling, but only if you chose the vacation packages. Once you select the package you prefer and move forward with the reservation is only asks for one persons name under hotel information, and that kind of freaks me out. You are so right about booking a room for 2 and needing it for more.... Last thing I want is someone having to pay for 2 rooms. ugh. So frustration. haha. I'm sure it will all work out, but for now- I'm stressed!
  6. Thank thank you for all the information! Would you mind sharing what travel agency you are working with? And did you find a better deal through the travel agency in comparison to priceline and websites like that?? From one DR bride to the other- THANKS A MILLION!
  7. Hello hello ME brides!! My fiance and I got engaged two an a half months ago, and decided on having our wedding in the DR. YAY! We have reserved our date, ceremony (church) and Jellyfish for reception for next year. We picked Majestic Elegance as the hotel our family, friends and us will stay at- it look GORGEOUS! Planning has been a breeze (to goo to be true), until I hit a wall. haha. Hope someone can help me with this. I've been in contact with Janet (ME) who handles group reservations, she is very sweet and has given me lots of information, but, I have a MAJOR problem and question she can't seem to understand or answer. If anyone can help me, I would appreciate it. Okay here is my problem: Many of us are planning on booking our trip through priceline.com, because so far they have the BEST deals on hotels/flights/vacation packages. The only down side is that it doesn't give you an option to put the number of guests staying at the hotel, so how will they get an all inclusive wrist band during their stay? Is there a fee once we arrive and how much? For some reason she wasn't sure how it would work or who priceline was. HELP. lol
  8. So I think I finally hit the stressing part of planning a wedding in the DR. grrrr. We will be staying at the Majestic Elegance and I've been in contact with Janet who handles group reservations. She is very sweet and has given me lots of information, but, I have a MAJOR problem and question she can't seem to understand or answer. If anyone can help me, I would appreciate it.

  9. Cnd29, Thank you for responding to my post. I'm glad to hear you had a great experience with them, it makes me feel much better. I will be checking out your pictures as well Thanks again!!!
  10. JF Brides. I need feedback on Caribbean Emotions Photography. Good or not so good?? I've googled Punta Cana wedding photographers, but have only come up with a hand full, and of course the one I LOVED is booked. Thank you!!!!! Happy planning girls
  11. Hi april4884, haha. Glad you were able to provide an answer for me. I know planning a destination wedding you find yourself asking more questions than answering them- life of the bride I guess. Thank you for the great information, I will be looking into it and seeing if it benefits me. After finding out how DR hotels block rooms, it made me want to give up as well. It's so frustrating! So far, my guests have been doing their own research on flights and hotels, which has been easy on me. I was so stressed at first about getting some time of a package deal and blocking rooms, but after a while.. I said forget it! hahaha. Glad everything is working out for you and good luck with all the planning. Hopefully I will be able to answer one of your questions some time. ha.
  12. Hi Lala32. Thank you for your response and information. I, like you have decided to allow my guests to search their own travel arrangements, which takes the stress off of me. Everyday I price out flights and hotels, and surprisingly I have found priceline.com to be the cheapest out of every travel site, including travel agencies. Check out the vacation packages, great deals! Good luck.
  13. Hello JF brides and brides-to-be!!! Can anyone help me regarding blocking rooms at Majestic Elegance?? My fiance and I have decided on Majestic Elegance as the hotel we will be staying at, and would love our family and friends to say at as well. The problem is: I called Majestic and spoke with the woman in charge of group reservations, and she said the ONLY way of blocking rooms is for everyone to reserve their room on their own and give one individual the money FOR ALL THE RESERVATION, so it could paid at as one payment upon arrival. Um. That sounds like a problem. I don't think anyone wants to be responsible for someone else's money. What did you girls do about travel arrangements (hotel and flights)? Thanks for your help
  14. Hi Jennifer, Sorry I haven't responded to your message, I haven't logged onto here in a while. Do you still need the pricing brochure?
