    for hors d'eourves you can either have it at the Sea and See or the Lobby bar. they don't change you for the space- u just pay for the hor d'eourves you pick. There is a bar right there so u don't have to pay for the drinks either. Hope this helps

      We had Renaud as well and he was awesome! He got such candid and intimate photos and we literally met him at the beach. It's like he knew exactly what we wanted. He did a great job photo shopping out any people in the water or on the beach so it looked like we were alone in the pictures. It was a second wedding for us so we wanted something simple but he gave us such fantastic photos to lock the memories of our special day.

        Did your WC book the photographer for you or was it something you had to do on your own?

          If you use the photographer at the resort, you can ask your wedding coordinator to assist you.  But if you use someone else (like we did), you have to do it yourself.  Just remember, the Majestic Resorts charge you $300 to use an outside photographer.

            Hi Everyone! We are just starting to plan for our May 2012 wedding and are seriously considering the ME. My only concern is that a reception isn't included with the package. Does anyone know if it is possible to have the private reception at the Wet Bar (the one that is $500/hr and includes sound system, open bar, ect.) but include a buffet for cheaper than the $55/plate? I am trying to keep costs down and we are considering doing dinner at the steakhouse but my FI and I both would prefer to do the dinner/reception at the same place.


            Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

              I'm pretty sure that $55/pp is the cheapest buffet option.  I know, their private dinner prices are just plain wrong!  That's why we opted for dinner at the Steakhouse.  Good luck planning!

                If you want to buy your own liquor bottles, you just tell your WC that you are doing that.  We got a list form her and then when we met we chose what we wanted.  The prices were not bad at all.  The mixers are included too.


                Don't do the open bar.  It's a waste of money.  Most of our guest drank beer and wine which was included.  We got bottle of Stoli, Brugal Rum (DR kind) and Jack Daniel's and it worked out well and it was under $100. 


                We had the $55 a plate buffet which was excellent and at the Wet Bar.  We only had 41 guests so it wasn't too bad on our budget.

                  Thank you for the information. I was going to do open bar but now that I see I can buy the alcohol I will do that instead. Thanks again :)
