Majestic Colonial or Elegance Brides Post Here

Hi Everyone,

 

I'm wondering if any of you can give me a heads up as to what I need to arrange next in my wedding planning with the resort. I'm not really clear on what needs to be booked with the coordinators in advance, and what you're supposed to wait to book until you're down there. I know the coordinators are busy, so I don't want to send them unnecessary emails.

 

So far, I have confirmed my date with the coordinators only. I'm not sure what I need to be bugging them about next though. Do I need to book my photographer (I'm using the resort photog.), hair/makeup, kinds of flowers, cake appearance, colour of the canopy, etc now? And would I do all of this through the coordinator (or would I contact the spa/photog. separately)?

 

Also, we only have 10 guests, so we're just going to use an a-la-carte as some of you suggested. Since they separate us a little bit from the rest of the restaurant, do we book that before our trip through the coordinator, or do we just book it when we get there like we would any other night we use an a-la-carte restaurant?

 

Any help/suggestions you can give me would be great!!!

Thanks in advance!

After I booked, I told them my ceremony location, dinner location, reception location, and whether or not I needed the sound system/DJ/photographer.

Don't book the restaurant yourself. Let the co-ordinator do it for you. It is part of your wedding package and you get a fancy decorated table. If you book it yourself, you may not get the same service.

The canopy is always white so if you want a different colour, I believe you have to bring it yourself.

You can get the email address of the spa, however it seems common that they don't actually book you in anyway. I've heard from many people that they went to the spa the day they arrived to confirm, and it turned out it wasn't booked.

Destination Weddings are so easy and carefree. Especially when you have a nice inimate group of 10 or so. I wouldn't worry about anything else until you get there. Remember, they do weddings almost everyday, sometimes a couple in the same day. They are experts and you don't have to worry :)

Congrats on your wedding!

Hi all! I am getting married at the Majestic Colonial on April 19, 2010. I will be there from April 17th to April 24th. I have emailed the wedding coordinator Sandra directly. You can get a free wedding if you have 15 rooms. So, basically if you have 15 couples coming to be with you on your wedding day you can get your wedding for free. Sandra informed me that it would be everything that is included in the package Iscilley quoted in the first post.

Hi Alli,

I was told it was 15 rooms but that each room had to be booked for 7 nights. You might want to get clarification on this because I was just there the end of May and that's what the brochure said too but I asked anyway. Let me know if you definitely hear something different because I have 15 rooms but not all of them are 7 nights.

It does have to be for 7 nights and I believe it has to be full regular price rooms with no discounts or children. But again, look into it. I could be wrong.

thanks Khomac! I did check into it again and it's on their website also. You must book 15 rooms each at 7 nights stay with no other discounts. What people don't realize and i didn't....when you book through a TA you get a discount. For example, my group and I got the early booking special so for 7 nights it was $735 a person (only $105/night)....this is super low so it's discounted below what the normal cost is because we booked early which means no free wedding anyway. Not a big deal to me but I don't know of anyone who could get a free wedding unless booking through the hotel directly.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
