Majestic Colonial or Elegance Brides Post Here

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me how quickly I should expect a response from a Majestic wedding coordinator via email? I'm trying to find out if my wedding date is available and since it's fairly soon, I'm getting a little anxious.

Hi Lori

 

I seems to depend entirely on who you are assigned as your wedding coordinator.

Many of the brides who I have spoken to seem to wait for sometimes a week or more to hear back.

I have been fortunate enough to be dealing with Maritee Garces and she typically gets back to me within 24 hours. Her email address is weddings@majestic-resorts.com

 

Hopefully you hear something soon!!

Hi Korie,

 

I might be able to help you answer a few questions....

I'm not entirely sure on this but I don't believe that there is a bar close to the beach that is open during the evening. However, I may be wrong.

Have you considered holding your reception at the Parrot Bar? This is what we intend to do as we had the same feelings towards the open bar prices, especially considering it is an all-inclusive resort! There is a public bar that is within a few strides of the Parrot Bar!

You are free to bring your own photographer, and if they are staying there as part of your group then you won't even have to worry about getting a day pass for them! As for other entertainment, you would have to double check with the wedding coordinator.

We are having our dinner at the Seafood restaurant! I asked Maritee about the difference and she said that they have the same menu available for both restaurants (surf and turf). The restaurants even share the same building. So I believe the only difference is the decor.

From what I have heard, they should have a blast!

 

Hope this helps :)

I have my wedding set for 12/31/09 at the Colonial at 1pm. Now I just have to wait for the pricing to come out, they are still saying April-ish time frame.

 

Is 1pm too early for the ceremony? I am not sure what the weather is like to determine.

I have heard that 2 or 3pm is a good time for your ceremony in Nov/Dec. Mine is at 3pm in Nov. Ask Josh Brown he may know what time is better for that month.

Thanks! I finally actually emailed all three of the coordinators listed on the site yesterday, including Maritee, so maybe I'll hear back soon.

Hey Ladies,

I am not going to be married on Dec 29 at the Majestic, I was sad to cancel it but it's just tooo expensive to go there at Christmas/New Years. I can't ask people to pay almost $3K to go for a week. Now, I feel like I am back to square one! smile35.gif

 

I still want to consider the Majestic, but since I am having it in May or June 2010 now I am thinking prices at other places will also be more competitive...I got a quote from a TA who said it will be 1800 pp plus taxes in May 2010 to the Majestic...still seems a little high to me, if we were going this year it would be about 300-400 cheaper than that...so, I am not sure what to do!! I have contacted another TA to get a quote, so we'll see how that turns out...

Just thought I would update you guys since I am not longer a Dec 29 bride!

    • 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. 
    • 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?
