I am curious if any of you paid a deposit or signed a contract to hold your wedding date? I am a little nervous about not providing them with anything other than my name, the date, and time. Will they contact me as it gets closer to the date? Or is everything figured out once you arrive? Thanks!!!

Andrea, very good question. i hope someone will be able to provide some insight as I'm trailing slowly behind. btw congrats!

 

You know, I was a bit surprised by the colonial's pricing per person for a private party...does anyone feel it was over-priced? This morning my sister made a good point. She figured the price per person should depend on their high or low season. Has anyone attempted to negotiate the per person price? If so, how did that go?

 

Also, those of you who have been contemplating on the open bar. I'm working with Annemarie and she has been wonderful so far in responding to my emails. She provided me with the private gala menu which states house wine (red and white), beer, juice, soda and bottle water is automatically included. With that being said, it's not worth paying the for the add'l open bar. Save your money, enjoy what's included!

I asked about that too, but I guess they dont take deposits...so that being said, if you have an email with "confirmation of your date" make sure to print it out and bring it with you.

Hello,

 

I was there in May for a site visit and asked some of these questions and saw both resorts.

 

1.) They don't take contracts/deposits...do what Ali said and print every email out and take with you. You may need this at some point!

 

2.) Difference between the hotels...nothing major! The elegant side is more elegant but the colonial is beautiful. I chose the colonial because it isn't brand new and has all the small growing pains worked out. The elegance is brand new which makes it completely beautiful but I decided for my guests the colonial was a better fit because it seemed to cater more to families...the elegance allows kids but I felt it had a more adult atmosphere. I actually booked the colonial side for my wedding, but my fiance and I are staying 2 weeks total so we are doing 7 nights colonial and 7 nights at the elegance club adult only section for our honeymoon.

 

3.) I do think the private dinner prices are ridiculous! We are doing the free dinner and renting the parrot bar for cake/dancing/speeches. The open bar is even silly but its alot less than what I'd have to pay for a private dinner. Some people don't even do a private reception and go to the disco so they bypass all the extra costs.

 

4.) I went through Liberty Travel in Whitehall, PA. My TA has done all of my trips and my family has used her for atleast 5 years. We booked in July for our May 18, 2010 wedding so we got the early booking price. If you are contemplating booking I would do it soon before this early booking price is gone. I would imagine October would be even better prices than what I booked at because it's low season (even tho May is too).

 

5.) Someone asked about the gazebo...I absolutely loved it when I saw it! It's beautiful and def private! I don't mind people watching which they can do at the gazebo, but they can't crowd you since there is water surrounding the one side and only one way to walk towards it! They have pics on their website too if interested.

 

Congrats to all you Majestic brides! I love this site!

Hi Lauren, I love the song on your wedding website!!! Perfect destination wedding song =) Thank you so much for all the info. Do I need to make arrangements for my "reception" before I go? They answer my e-mails quickly but rather vaguely... Congrats, and thanks again for the information!!

I would email the WC if you have an idea of where you want your "reception". I emailed her about the Pres. Suite then changed my mind to the Parrot Bar. Nothing is sent in stone per say, so if you get down there and like a different spot you can possibly switch if it's available. But if another bride has booked it, then you may not get your 1st choice.

I am finding it difficult just to get my date that they can marry us. We are booking the Majestic Elegance providing the wedding planner ever gets back to us with an available day. We are hoping for any day during the week of our stay which is Feb 2-9, 2010.

Are you dealing through a travel agent? I found that when I tried to contact the hotel wedding coordinator directly they would take forever to answer but once I had my travel agent it didn't take as long to get a reply. I hope for you that they have dates left because I just tried to change my date and they didn't have much available for January.

I agree...using a travel agent does help! Mine has been very helpful....but Maritee my WC does answer emails pretty quickly. Dates fill up quickly so maybe you should call there? I did once and spoke to WC immediately. Good luck!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
