Recommended Posts

I just heard back from Lisa at Majestic Elegance and my date of August 5, 2013 has been held for me! Super excited. We are just waiting for confirmation from the Judge and Priest which will be this April. Only then will I feel as though its OFFICIAL OFFICIAL!

Nothing new on this thread where is everyone? All done planning LOLZ!! Well I will let you guys know I am having a bit of a difficult time getting good pricing for the resort the Majestic quoted me $143pp, per night for 7 nights then my TA quoted me $200 pp, per night for 7 nights with Airport transfer BUT I saw on cheapcaribbean.com $1575 for 7 nights AND AIR (they didn't have the exact dates but it's an estimate I contacted someone directly to give me exact pricing. On the Majestic colonial FB page a girl told me she got this:  Our rates were $199 for single occupancy, $137 for a double and $99 for a triple occupancy   - so I am reaching out to her TA. What prices are you  gals NOT in canada getting for your rates? What TA are you using? 

 

We are flying out of San Francisco thus airfare is going to be very pricey so I NEED to make sure we get a good resort rate especially since I'm a BIG TIME bargain hunter and the lower the price the more likely people are going to be able to come =)

We leave tomorrow, but for our guests our rates were $150 a night with airport transfers.  My family is flying out from SFO and their flights were $500. So $597 for the hotel and $500 (appx) for the flight.

I just wanted to stop by and say hi...we are thinking about the Colonial in February or March 2013. Well it's on our short list anyway. Anyway, my name is Nicole and I live in New Brunswick Canada.

Hi Nicole...trust me when I say, choosing your resort is probably one of the hardest parts of a destination wedding...we are getting married at the Elegance, and I have heard that both the Elegance and Colonial do amazing work (they share co-ordinators...).  A friend of mine just came back from her cousin's wedding and it looked beautiful. 
 

 

It took us forever to choose resorts, but we couldn't be happier with our decision.

 

Good luck and don't be afraid to post any questions that you may have, we are all here to help each other!!

So I'm about 95%  sure we are gonna go with the MC. Wow this is a tough decision, lol! So now I have a dumb question....what do I do now? Do I contact the resort to hold my date? does my TA? 

 

Also,

 

How did you pick your date? I'm thinking early March 2013 but other then that I couldn't care less when it is...does your date hold any significance to you?

Hey there. I'm having my wedding at the Majestic Colonial next Saturday (Feb 18th), so basically the same time of year as yours, just a year earlier. I booked all the travel for my guests because I am a part-time travel agent and can get pretty good group rates. My guests are paying about $115/nt double occupancy... and I recently got quotes for a wedding at the Elegance in May, and those rates were $116/nt dbl.  So if you want me to check for your wedding to, send me a private message with your email, dates, which resort, etc and I can check for you. What I did for my wedding was book a block of rooms, and then each of my guests paid a $50 deposit to hold their spot, and then the balance was due 2 months before travel.  You also get perks for booking groups such as every 16th passenger free.  I'm actually flying to Punta Cana for my wedding tomorrow morning, so I may be a little slower than usual responding to emails for the next week.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
