      Thanks so much Josh for all of that information. I guess I will wait till you get back with photos :) I am still so unsure of what to do!

        Hi Everyone!
        I just back back this past Saturday from having our wedding at the ELEGANCE on Wednesday July 29. It was such a great time and we loved it! We were in the upgraded Adults Only section and it was completely worth it! Our butler Angel was the BEST! Maritee was our coordinator and she was great.

        We had a beach ceremony and Angel and other resort employees stopped people from walking by on the beach. There were a lot of people who stopped and watched! I think it was best to use a CD for music, I brought a CD and my ipod just in case. I'm not sure if is one beach location for the majestic and for the colonial, but the one we had didn't look AS good as the colonial's. They do provide you with a microphone and a sound system on the beach since it is really hard to hear with the waves.

        We were told that we could have 50 people in the Steakhouse but then later we were told that was too many so we ended up getting the rented conference room for free! We had dancing in their as well b/c we just rented a sound system and used our ipods. Ended up being a great idea! It was hot even though there was AC. Then on Wednesday nights (I'm assuming every week is the same) they had a beach party for both resorts that we went to, and then headed to the disco. So we didn't go to sleep until 3am! too much fun!

        There are definitely things you have to think about that I didn't realize.
        1. Communication is really hard! No one's phones worked and it is sort of a big resort so there as a lot of walking to find people.

        2. Luckily Maritee our wedding coordinator carries around her cellphone with her so we could get in touch with her if we called the front desk.

        3. Time was hard to keep track of. We would try to meet up places for events we planned like a game night and it was hard to spread the word sometimes! we did have about 50 guests though.

        4. Flowers you pick from a book so you really can't be picky about what you want. They are kinda not worth it, at least to me they weren't. 6 bridesmaids and mine came out to be $400!! luckily we used them as centerpieces too.

        5. Any decorations or extra touches you want, you have to bring them with you!! We made gift bags for everyone and it was a lot to bring down. We gave our guests a newsletter I wrote up (sorta all the info that would be in a program for the ceremony, schedule of events, about the resort, stuff like that) aloe, immoduim, pepto, wet wipes (everyone LOVED them), chocolates, sun screen, gum, purell... stuff like that. I also made menus and place cards for the reception.

        So ask my any questions you'd like I'm sure i'm forgetting a lot to mention! I am a graphic designer so I did all of the additions myself, so if you'd like to see let me know. It's hard to post a lot of pics on here. Or if you'd like to render my services i'd be glad to!

        email me if you'd like pictures!! I'll try to put some on here.

          I think you can go to this link. I selected a few pics. The first ones with the orange fabric (which they can take down) is of the nicer looking Colonial beach gazebo. The ones of my actual wedding are of the Elegance beach gazebo.

          Oh yeah and if you want fabric on the chairs or anything other than white around it you have to bring it I think. I think they did have a red carpet that they can roll out for you if you want it more formal and wear heels on the beach. A wedding after mine had that.

              Does anyone who's been married at the Majestic recently (or Josh) know if they provide vases for centerpieces? I'm assuming that they do if you're buying your centerpieces from them, I just wanted to double check and make sure that I don't have to bring anything myself (I was thinking Blumeboxes as a backup plan).

                Melissa, I'm not 100% sure, I just sent a couple emails to past brides and I'll let you know once they get back to me.

                  Can anybody give me examples of the differences between national, international, and premium open bar?
                  I assume the national is local brands but what about the other two.
                  We are having trouble deciding of which one to get.

                    Hi Mel-
                    I'm not married yet..but I will be at the Elegance on Oct 24.
                    From the information I received from Sandra-my coordinator the centerpieces start at $50 + 16%-thats for the simplest of centerpieces, they can go up to $150 + 16% per centerpiece. Depending on the flowers. I know with orchids its $150-it's crazy. They provide the vases for the centerpieces however they don't have much of a selection. So if your flexible you should be good..if you have something specific in mind you may have to bring your own.

                    Jillest81-national bar is local rum, beer etc. International-is all types of liquor from everywhere not just local and premium is what you would call top shelf liquor here .

                    Hope I helped! =)

                    PS-I have 12 brand new cylinder vases for sale-$20 plus shipping Size is 7 3/4" height!

                      Hi ladies,

                      I am curious if any of you paid a deposit or signed a contract to hold your wedding date? I am a little nervous about not providing them with anything other than my name, the date, and time. Will they contact me as it gets closer to the date? Or is everything figured out once you arrive? Thanks!!!
                      Andrea
