Majestic Colonial or Elegance Brides Post Here

Recommended Posts

Okay, here is a picture of the table set up. Sorry about the picture size - I am still new to the picture posting! We don't have too many pictures of the set up, because the photographer said that when he went to take pictures of everyone eating no one was sitting down, they were all having such a good time dancing!

Do you have any control with the hotel to make sure guests stay near each other since it's a big resort. Not a huge issue but just wondering when everyone books their room, if I can mention they are here for a wedding and maybe put them in the same area.

Who was your photographer? Did you encournter mosquitos during the reception? I've read this in previous reviews but now i'm not sure if it was Majestic Elegance or Elegance hotel. I was on a thread for the latter hotel thinking it was the Majestic Elegance. OOPS!

:)
We had 32 guests, and I didn't request that anyone be near each other, although I think that you can do that. Honestly, we didn't care! But it all worked out, and everyone ended up loving their rooms. Sandra was our WC and she was great. She put a letter in our room at arrival stating when our meeting would be, and was very prompt for the meeting. She answered all my questions and was patient. She was there for the ceremony and the beginning of the reception to make sure everything went smoothly and then she left.

We used Photosouvenir as our photographer, and we LOVED them! Renaud was our photographer and he was phenomenal. He was great to work with, really attentive - ironically I got really sick the night before the wedding and he was really attentive, getting me water and making sure I was okay to keep taking pictures. And he just had fun, blending in and taking pictures while everyone had a great time. We had our album before we left (we stayed 2 weeks) and we love our pictures. They are gorgeous.

As for mosquitoes, we did notice some during our stay - not me so much as my husband (some people got bitten more than others), but not during the reception at all, even though it rained really briefly.

A final note about the decorations - I think there is a package where you can pay to have extra decorations for the ceremony spot too (we were married at the gazebo) but I didn't do that figuring it would be nice enough, and they do use the chair sashes and that was all I needed. But it looked so beautiful anyway! There was a flower arrangement on the table, and rose petals on the ground in the gazebo! So I wouldn't worry about decorations for the ceremony as long as you have the chair sashes. I am posting a few more pictures of the Wet Bar just so you have an idea of what it looks like. I have to post a full review soon, because the wedding was so fabulous, it completely exceeded my expectations!

Hey P&B2010,

 

Just wondering if you had your meal at the wet bar? We're still undecided as to where we want our meal. What were your meal options?

Pictures are beautiful!!!

The regular package includes beer, wine, and champagne.

 

As for the decorations, we went with one of the Majestic Decoration packages (I think they have 3 packages and we went with package 2) and I would highly recommend that. I know it may seem costly, but it is totally worth it. Their decorations actually exceeded my expectations - the tables were beautiful. The package included the chair sashes, which were also on the chairs for the ceremony. There were also table runners, and it included the centerpieces. They put little stones on the tables, and had menus. I have a picture that I will attempt to post - not sure how that will turn out! :)

We did have our meal at the Wet Bar and everyone loved the food! I don't recall there being many options, I think it's a standard buffet. They set up a buffet, and it seemed to have a little bit of everything. Sandra emailed me the full menu. We saw all of the reception locations while we were there and we are so happy we picked the Wet Bar - it was perfect. I'm sure other brides would disagree, and the Majestic did a beautiful job with all the weddings so I wouldn't worry about whatever you choose! :)

Congrats P&B. It sound like you had a really great time for your wedding. I can't wait to hear a review of your wedding there. I'm getting married there in September.

I can't wait!! we just confirmed our date on the beach at the Majestic Colonial on April 21 2011 at 3pm!! So much stuff to get organized!! We just spoke to Photo Phil and we are looking for other couples around the same time to possibly split the cost? We also viewed some of the pictures from the wet bar and they look great! Anyone have any information if DJ Mania needs to be booked in advance of us arriving or if he has any contact information for a deposit? Any tips?

 

Congratulations to everyone!!
