Our honeymoon, for 8-days at PPR was WAY less than that - and we stayed in Royal Service. Is this a rack rate from online or a special rate through a travel agent? If its not a TA rate, I would recommend looking into one. We saved a LOT of money that way and got some freebies thrown in.
We got married at Paradisus Punta Cana and while some guests stayed for a week, most stayed 4-nights (although they wish they had stayed more) and it was more like $379pp for 3 nights, plus $179pp per night extra, plus airfare.
There isn't much need for spending money, other than tipping and souvenirs. Everything else should be included..
I am very interested to see where your $4000 per person is coming from. It's a little outlandish for Punta Cana - which is overall a very affordable place to go for DW's.
And if you are in eastern Canada - I know most airfares are exceptionally reasonable...

If you are close to a border, have you looked at flying out from the US?
I know where you are coming from though, we looked at the Majestic when we first started planning. Regular and group rates came back too high for our guests as well. They only wanted to spend $1500 taxes in. We ended up going with the Melia which has the option of regular rooms and upgraded Royal Service rooms. My wedding was just as beautiful as I imagined even though we didn't get our first choice for resort.
Have you looked at the RIU's or another complex type resort or is your heart set on the Majestic? Complexes give guests options pricewise. If you go that route, make sure though you aren't paying extra fee's or have to rules that you have to have the wedding in a specific location (e.g. Riu's have a rule, wedding is where 80% of guests are staying).
It's tough when you have a DW, because you know some people can't make it regardless of how much they want to go.
