I just found out they can't accomodate me any time within the 3 week window (July 2010) that I provided them. I'm pretty bummed right now...

Back to the drawing board I go....
Did you try the Elegance as well?

Its very frustrating, all i want is a date so I could move forward with ANY planning. Has anybody had a Catholic or is planning to have a Catholic wedding there? I appreciate any info or feedback! Thanks!
I also haven't heard anything back from Sandra for an email I sent about 2 week ago, so I don't have any tips in that regard. Now that I've sent her an email about availabilities I'm afraid I won't hear back for a while! Someone suggested that, if you're capable, send an email in Spanish! I passed that task over to the FI who said he "took care of it". Who knows what he wrote...?


As for the Catholic wedding, I haven't seen any feedback other than the fact that LaRomana has a lovely little church. Let's just hope there are more priests in DR than judges for your sake! I think they now have 3 and that's 2 more then they had last year!

Best of luck!!

Hi :)

 

With regards to a catholic ceremony there is a cute Catholic church in Punta Cana, or the one in la Romana as you mention, but this is at least 1.5 hours travelling time each way. The Majestic also has a little chapel on site, so in theory you should be able to use that.

 

The preists will only perform the cermeony in a location which is chapel - like: i,e a gazebo etc. as long as its not near people sunbathing in bikinis, they wont do the ceremony near half naked people!!

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?

I saw it for the first time at the Colonial and it turned out really well. It would be the same at the Elegance but it is not the steakhouse. It is at the beach restaurant called the Sea and C (or C and C) I don't know how it is spelled. The only potential difference might be the menu.

Here are three photos of the setup at the Majestic Colonial steakhouse terrace for dinner and dancing. The blue that you see on the top is a tarp that they put up in case it rained.

 

Similar to the beach reception option this may not work out during some of the winter months when the wind is extremely strong. You are outside of the wind screens (which are not shown in the photos).

 

This setup was for I believe 33 people. For music a Bose iPod dock/speaker set was used and was definitely loud enough.

 

The bar is not even a minutes walk away and is open until 11pm

Thanks Josh!

Thats awesome. The pics give me a better idea of the space since its gotten vague in my memory from when I went down there. Question though, what's with all the chairs lined up against the wall?

Hi Everyone, I just got back from my wedding at the Majestic Elegance. It was absolutely AMAZING!!! I could not have asked for a better day. A have a few peices of advice for the upcoming brides

- if you want to have decorations on your cake bring your own. They may provide a ribbon but that is it. The cake is super yummy though and you get to pick the flavors (banana filling with chocolate cake was our favorite!).

- If you have specific flowers in mind I would bring you own, just to be on the safe side (fake flowers I mean). They confirmed over email that I could have bright pink and white lillies but when I got there they were not available. If you are not too picky then they will make a beautiful bouqet for you. Mine turned out fabulous!

- It seems that things you confirm over email are not written in stone. We asked for a videographer over email and when we got there one was not available. Kind of a bummer. We had a great photographer though so hopefully the pictures will capture the whole experience.

- If you do not want to pay to rent out a seperate area for the reception (Wet Bar, Parrot Bar,ect) it is possible to do some dancing at the Jazz bar before the Disco opens. This is what we did and it worked out fabulous. My husbands father asked the band to play a slow song for us and we did our first dance here ("Hopelessly Devoted", origionally sang by Olivia Newton John). Keep in mind that the music is in Spanish (half of our first dance song was in English) and if it rains this may not be an option. There is also a nice area by the bar in the front lobby that would be nice to hang out in before the disco opens- it is right beside a bar anyways). We planned on heading up here but ended up taking extra pictures by the pool and doing the bouquet toss off the bridge (a fun idea that came up at the time).

 

I will put up a reveiw really soon will all of the details with pictures. If you would like a sneak preview of our wedding pics here you go:

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
