Recommended Posts

Hi all! Thanks for all the great pics and wedding info at the Majestic Elegance! It has been very helpful! Has anyone received the 2010 price list? It was suppose to be available this month but they have not replied to my email yet.

 

Happy planning everyone!

Hey chicas!! I got the 2010 prices!!!!!!

I finally heard back from Maritee after calling and having to resend the email I sent them in March because they said they did not receive it and now 2 days after resending the email I got the pricing list for 2010.

 

Note** They said they have been having problems with their emails because many people have already complained about not getting responses. So make sure they get your emails, call if you must.

 

Anyways, the pricing is not that much different. Everything is the same price except for two things. The wedding package for a civil ceremony is $1750 BUT it DOES NOT include live SAXO music. On the original post it was $1500 and $1750 with saxo. She said they are not offering the saxo at this time. Symbolic is still $1250. The other difference, which is not that much of a difference but its better, the DJ, its $600 for 3 hours and $225 each additional hour. I believe the original posting just said $225 per hour, so in actuality you'd be saving $75 for the first 3 hours.

 

Another added bonus I just noticed is that instead of getting 10% off Spa treatment for the couple, now its complimentary and you get the use of the humid area (as if its not humid enough down there cheesy.gif) I guess that means the sauna?? But no mention on the horseback riding discount.

 

And like I said, everything else is exactly the same. I literally just got it like 5 minutes ago and quickly compared the prices to this posting so if I find anything else I'll be sure to let you all know.

 

Hope this helps.

 

I will be going to the DR next month and staying at Majestic for a couple of nights for the purpose of checking the place out and meeting the coordinators and determining if I want my wedding at the Colonial or the Elegance. They won't set an appointment for that meeting until one or two weeks before I get there for some reason but if there's anything else anyone wants me to ask or check out let me know. I will take pictures and post.

 

Happy planning!!!

 

Anna

Hi Everyone! I am newly engaged and loving this site!!

 

Thank you so much for the fantasic post! Lost of information I have been trying to find on the website but haven't been able to. :-) I am currently in the process of booking our wedding at the Majestic Colonial for this December and am so excited, though a bit confused about some things....

 

If this is an all inclusive 24 hour resort, how can they charge for an open bar? Aren't drinks all included? It seems to me that having a privtae reception with dinner and drinks at this resort will cost just as much as it would to do it at home.

 

Can anyone shed anymore light on the pricing?

 

Than you so much in advance. :-)

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
