I do have my heart set on the beach wedding, that is the main reason I chose to have a destination wedding. I want the sand in my toes. So the photographer and WC should be able to keep the people at a reasonable distance if asked?

Once people see a wedding their general reaction is to crowd around. The WC when setting up the area will pull chairs back to a certain point, and they sometimes assign guards to usher people by at the beach by in my experience the guards just tend on holding a crowd there. During the actual wedding the WC will not ask people to step back or go away or anything because they are actively involved in the ceremony.

I can only speak for myself as a photographer but I am way too busy taking photos to ask people to step away or leave because they are unsightly.

The truth is - its a busy beach and if you choose to have it at that location there will be people watching. Some will be in swimsuits, some will be topless etc. If you have the ceremony at say 5 or 6 pm there will be less people on the beach.

Once you are there I suggest going to check out another wedding and if you don't like the amount of people they will switch it to the Gazebo for you.

This is not something that is exclusive to the Majestic, basically any beach ceremony at any resort will have the same problem.

good point. I guess i'll just go expecting it; but at the same time just ignore the people. HOpefully they will have enough common courtesy to not come to close...especially if they are topless! I'll be having my dream of getting married on the beach; and that will be the only thing that matters!

That is definitely the right attitude to have. I have had a couple brides ask me beforehand to get a shot of a guy in a speedo in the background with them in the foreground if I can. They found it funny.

Dinner I believe can start at 6:30...but not 100% sure. I know 7 definitely because that's what I am doing. 3pm is a fine time but realize the beach is very crowded still at that time. If you are 100% fine and can tune everyone out then go for it. The WC do not block people from getting close so realize video/pics could have a lot of beach goers in them. If this is not ok go for a later time because I know you said the beach is your dream wedding spot. Otherwise everything will be perfect and beautiful!

are you getting married on the beach?

 

I wanted to do a little later....4 or 5 but she told me 3 was the only time they had for that week!! I can't believe it fills up that fast! Does anyone know where on the beach you are married? Is it set off to the side a little?

    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations.
