Recommended Posts

Hi everyone -

Need to book dinner reservation for the group and I was wondering...those of you who have been to the Elegance, would you prefer Asadito or See & Sea? Any opinions?

Thank you for the help!

Thanks, Caribe! I was leaning towards Sea and Sea at first (only b/c it was noted as beach front), then I got the set menu...Sea and Sea was either lobster or pasta; but Asadito offered Beef, Chicken or Pasta. Now I'm leaning towards Asadito since there's one more option for the guests. Seems like that might be a better option? Have you seen wedding groups at either places? Which one offers better ambiance/atmosphere/more room?

Hi Everyone! We just set our date for May 19, 2010 at 5 pm for the Majestic Elegance. I am so excited!! Does anyone have their photographer picked out yet? I am debating whether we should look into flying someone in or hire someone local. Obviously flying someone in would be much pricier so hopefully we can find a great photographer in the area. I tried doing a google search but was only able to find destination wedding photographers. Any thoughts/suggestions please let me know on what you have decided to do!! Or if anyone who is getting married close to our date wants to split flying in a local photographer I am up to discussing that option as well!!! In the meantime I will search this forum for ideas!

Thanks!

So much to learn and digest...
I was wondering...it appears to me most of the ladies got married or will get married on the Colonial side; and a handful have chosen the Elegance side...
I will be on the Elegance on May 14, 2010.
I noted the following ladies are at the Elegance, any one else?

Ladies above, would you mind sharing your pictures? Did anyone choose to get married at the Gazebo? or the Chapel?

Please feel free to PM me or contact me at carolineandchuck@gmail.com

Hope to hear from you! :)

Hi CnC,

I will be at the Elegance on May 19, 2010! Feel free to pass on any information you get regarding the Elegance from former brides (crystalmhowe@hotmail.com). I have found that most brides on here have chosen the Colonial side as well. Hopefully I made the right decision... it just felt more my style. Did you do a site visit? Have you decided on a photographer? So many things to do and think about!!!!

Haven't heard from anyone other than what was responded here. I agree, I liked Elegance a bit more though they both looked fantastic. We are actually staying at the Elegance Club. More bar options! :) I haven't booked a photog yet...that's on my next to-do list. :) K.I.T.

Uggh! So I have hit a major snag in my planning - 6 weeks before we fly out! I have now learned some things the hard way, so for those of you who haven't booked yet, here are some things to consider and be aware of....

 

Although others in the past have been able to write their own ceremony script, apparently they don't allow that anymore. I am having a symbolic ceremony, and was under the impression for the last year of my planning that my fiance and I could write our own ceremony script, however our wedding planner just advised us that although they used to allow this, they don't any longer. Since the script that they do read, at least the one posted somewhere on this site, is completely impersonal and short, and since I've been writing up a storm creating our own personal script, I am more than disappointed. We already did the short, impersonal legal ceremony and have been working hard to make an emotional, memorable, and personal ceremony at the resort. She did indicate, however, that she'll let us say our own vows if we wish to. Now I'm going to see if I can book Pastor York (assuming they still allow him to do the ceremony at the resort), however since my wedding is in 6 weeks, who knows if he'll still be available!

 

Also, our reception plan is a disaster! We tried to book for a beach reception as this is what we have planned all along. I have read every page of this thread, but if what I learned today was somewhere within this thread, I certainly didn't see it.... Today Maritee informed me that you cannot book any of the private reception options unless you have 20 people or more at your wedding. So since we are only a group of 11, it looks like we're stuck with the free dinner option. Not the end of the world, but since I have had it in my head that we would do a beach reception even before we booked the resort last year, I am totally upset! I know we're a small group, but I still want a special evening! I have purchased all sorts of stuff and had planned out music for dinner, etc, and now that was all wasted time!

 

Maritee had sent me an extra's list that indicated that with the beach reception option, there were "more options on request" available. When I asked her what the "more options" for the beach reception were, she stated that sometimes they have couples that request a violinist for their CEREMONY or a fire dancer’s show for the reception or a rock band. I WANTED a violinist for the ceremony, but nowhere on any of the information she sent me (which wasn't much information) indicated that this was an option, so I never inquired about it because I just figured I'd have to hire someone from outside the resort if I wanted it that badly. Also, on this Extra's list, it gives the reception options and nowhere on this list does it mention a minimum guest number.... very frustrating.

 

So just a warning for all Brides in the process of planning.... make sure you confirm everything as soon as possible with the resort, and don't assume ANYTHING just because you saw it on this site/the internet (or apparently the resort for that matter)... And make sure you ask lots and lots of questions because they don't just "offer" you information. 6 weeks to go and I should be worrying about which bathing suits to pack, but I'm basically having to start back at the beginning because I didn't want to "bother" the resort with too many emails. How disappointing...

oh, Tara, that sucks! I'm so sorry. Definately check out pastor york. I advised maritee of that and she didnt say he was not allowed, so check him for sure. Another suggestion since you ceremony is symbolic is to see if they will allow one of your friends or family members to officiate. I know of a bride that did that before...unless that falls under the new rules.

I had NO idea of the 20 person limit, thank you for posting this. We were planning on over 20 but its possible it may be less. That is good to know. I am 90% sure that I am actually moving my ceremony and reception to the Jellyfish Restaurant off site. The wedding co ordinator is amazing and they can make your wedding really special. Check out their website and see if it's something you're into. Then you can use all your special touches and say your own vows.

 

I hope everything works out for you...hugs.
