The review of my wedding!!! Resort, wedding and reception (Majestic Colonial)

Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies,

Here is my review of my wedding at Majestic Colonial. I got married on November 24, 2009. Seems like only yesterday, even though few months already passed :)

 

Resort

We loved the resort! The grounds are beautiful and were made having weddings in mind. Everywhere you can take really good pictures. Everything is green and clean, freshly painted. The resort is very well up kept, the food is great, staff is really friendly and accommodating. Entertainment is funny and tasteful. A la carta restaurants are very good and flexible, willing to accommodate large groups :)

The only the only thing I did not like about a la carte restaurants is they do not let children in sad.gif I cannot blame them, nobody wants children running around when you are having romantic dinner, but, when you are in a group that can be hassle!!! In their defence, they did let us in with our baby (after significant tip :) ) Overall, we got tons of compliments from our friends, who traveled quite a bit around Caribbean, about the resort! Majestic Colonial was a perfect choice!!!

Service

When we arrived at the resort our room did not make us happy! We hated it! So we went to ask for another one, and they refused to change it. They told us that the resort was full. But we REALLY insisted, and they did find us a room half an hour later. Word of advice, if you want something be firm about it or nothing will be done!!!

Wedding

Mirasel ( I am not sure how to spell her name) was our wedding coordinator. I was surprised to find that out since I was talking to Sandra via email for months. At the beginning she seemed really on the ball. Took all our stuff and promised that everything will be fine. At the day of the wedding everything was going ok. The dress came on time, but the flowers were late, I had to send one of my friends to find Mirasel and flowers. When my friend came back she told me that the ceremony will be at the gazebo and that my reception will be moved to Wet Bar, since it was raining. Gazebo was nicely decorated and flowers were just like I wanted. The ceremony was lovely up to the point when we were suppose to sign the papers, that when I discovered that Mirasel forgot to bring my pen that I brought and our wedding toasting flutes. So we have it on the video when she is running to her office and back (it got cut out from the final version :) )

My hair and make up were done at the spa. They did terrific job, I brought all my own make up, the picture of how I want it to be done, all my own hair pins and Spanish speaking person, who explained everything. My bridesmaids and my mother in law also did their hair and make up, and were very happy about it!

Reception

We had private reception. The food was very good, the service was exceptional and cake was exactly like the picture I brought. We brought our own booze. Worked out great! We asked people to buy at Duty Free what they would like to drink and bring it with them to the resort, after we just paid them back. That was way cheaper than open bar!!! They decorated tables and arranged party favours just like we asked. We brought a lot of stuff with us, vases, silk flowers for centerpieces, little star fishes and sea shells. My parents ordered Fire Dancers for us. They made our day, really worth their money. They were exceptional, our guests loved them! We also brought bengal lights and my friends danced salsa and belly danced for us (I am lucky to have talented friends) :) My parents also ordered Fire Dancers for us. They were exceptional, really worth their money! Guests raved about them for weeks after the wedding, they really made our night!!!

 

After reception we came back to our room and it was not decorated (you know how housekeeping puts out flowers and “Just Married†sign on the door) I was tiny upset about that. In the morning my mom mentioned that to Mirasel, and when we came back from the beach next day, the room was decorated :) well, better late than never!!! :)

 

I hope my review will be helpful to other brides, I remember I read tons when I was planning my wedding. To future brides, Majestic is great place for a wedding, it all depends on you to make it unforgettable! If you have any questions please message me, I will be happy to help.

 

p.s. My pictures are in photographer review post :)

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
