Majestic Colonial or Elegance Brides Post Here

Recommended Posts

I know, I can't wait! Does anyone know anything about the DJ at the Majestic? I have read great things about DJ Mannia and am thinking about booking them, but Sandra told me there may be an extra charge because it is an outside vendor using the resort facilities. I just want to make sure I have a really good DJ, but I haven't heard anything about the DJ at the Majestic. Any help would be much appreciated!

Ladies don't forget to check out the group Majestic Colonial Brides on Facebook. It's an active group with LOTS of feedback. I've worked with Phil Steingard and had his nephew Michael do my photo's last week. Phil will always answer your questions even if you don't hire him.

Thank you! Do you know how much each bride pays for his travel costs on average?? I couldn't find any specifics on his website but will keep looking. I have tried reaching out to him but haven't heard back yet. I hope he is not booked already. His work looks amazing!!!

Any additional information you have on his prices/work please let me know!

Thanks!!

Hey Jessica,

 

I was just thinking the same thing last night. It looks like we'll end up with close to 50 guests ourselves and I would really like to have the BBQ buffet dinner but it would need to be at a reduced price... the other option is to have the dinner at the steakhouse restaurant and then rent out the parrot bar for dancing and cake cutting to save some cash, but I don't know how I feel about moving people from one spot to the next....

 

I guess there's no harm in asking right? When's your wedding?

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!
That really is a bummer. Here's a thought though. I have read you can get the section of the steakhouse or seafood that is portioned off and faces the beach, for a small fee. Probably a lot less than a private reception. then couldn't you do a "cocktail party" for your party portion? I know I saw they offer that somewhere too. I'm not sure where, but it wold be worth checking into.

Also, I know they do a beach party for the entire resort every week, with the exact same set up as the wedding reception. (decorations food, and they have entertainment too) Our wedding happens to fall the day after this beach party, so I ended up switching our reception to Wet Bar, with the night before being at the beach, our reception might seem a bit anticlimactic if it was on the beach as well. At least the Wet Bar will be something new for our guests. Plus, you could reserve tables together at the resorts beach party, still a beach party with your guests. That is our new plan. FYI, the beach reception option is why I chose this resort in the first place, so I get it. hope it works out for you.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
