Majestic Colonial or Elegance Brides Post Here

Recommended Posts

Hi brides!!

 

Has anyone heard anything good about Photo Souvenir? I'd be really grateful if anyone has any feedback, good or bad!

 

Does anyone else find the idea of hiring a local photographer a bit scary (because u cant meet them in advance)?? I just dont have the funds to pay the travel costs for a Canadian photgrapher.

 

Thanks!!

Everything I have read on here about photosouvenier has been wonderful!!! The only complaint (from others, not me) is that they have been taking a few weeks to answer emails. I have not had a problem though. When I have emailed them I have got a response witnin a day or 2 at the most.

After reading a few reviews on here, and looking at their website I was sold! I booked them for our wedding in July, 2010 and am VERY excited!!!!!

Their prices are pretty reasonable, too. They offer coverage only which I liked because I don't want to have to pay hundreds of dollars to ship albums to Canada once they are complete. The prices are not posted on the website, but when you inquire about them they will be provided. I can send you them if you like. :)

Does anyone know how far in advance you have to book the rooms?

And did you guys do a block of rooms through the hotel directly yourselves or did you have the TA work on it for you.

A friend of mine is also getting married at the Majestic Colonial. Her wedding is in Nov 2009 and was told by her TA that her guests should book by Aug 2009. I don't know the number of guests going.

 

Hope that helps.

Hi Jenn!!

Thanks for your response!! Just to clarifiy, when you said that they "offer coverage only" does this mean they send you home with the DVD? My understanding was that the Elite package (3 hours) that I was considering includes an album with 1 set of 50 pictures (or something like that). I didn't think about the shipping at all! I prefer having pictures than a DVD but then again the shipping costs for the pictures will probably be substantive as you said!!

Thanks so much for your input, Jenn!!

Exactly!

I got the 5 hour coverage package, it was $1400 US. I forget how many photos they estimated they would take during that time but it was quite a few. I want to say 400-500 maybe? They do the edits and give you a CD. I dont think the CD will be availible to us before we leave, but I have read that they are FAST!

After I have the CD I was hoping to find a photographer locally to put together a nice coffee table album or something for us. The estimate about $150 US just to ship the album which I thought was money I could easily spend elsewhere!! wink.gif

This thread is great. I too am finding it hard to get answers from the WC at the Majestic Elegance. I finally got my wedding date booked. Now I can't get a hold of her again to see if she can decorate with the colors I have chosen.

I am wondering also if anyone knows of a good but cheap photographer that may at the Majestic Elegance on Feb 4 and for hire?

I'm getting married at the Colonial on Feb 3 and Josh Brown is photographing my wedding. You could always contact him or PM me if you're interested in also using him: mail@josh-brown.com

He's shot a lot of weddings at the Colonial and the Elegance and he knows the resorts well. We're planning on doing a TTD on the morning of the 4th but I don't expect that it would take us more than a couple of hours.

YAH....I've confirmed OCT9,2010...I'm so excited.

My only real issue is Yadiliis, she seems very uninterested in what she's doing.

Getting info out of her is like pulling teeth. oyvay!!!

Does anyone have opinion on Wet bar v/s Parrot bar/ I might have over 50 guests and Parrot only accommodates for 50. Also i'm in the preliminary stages on deciding on a photagrapher but if anyone is interested in sharing Michael Weiler...let's talk.

I'll be in the DR Oct 4-11 2010

    • 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?
