Yes I saw the Tortuga Bay in my reseach but as you said, it's really expensive! It's not even an all included. I don't want to do that to my guests. But yes it looks amazing!

I was surprised at how expensive the Majestic is, I had initially wanted to get married there but I really didn't want people to spend that much, but it depends on your guests I suppose (my bridesmaids/groomsmen and friends are all students still and I knew they couldn't afford that much money). It is a really great resort from what I can tell, and you can't cater to everyone, so if you really want this then I would say go for it - people who really want to come will probably not let a difference of $200 stop them.
I guess I am easily swayed by guilt from others, so when I found out how much it was going to be to go to my top choices in DR I decided to switch to Cuba (I don't have any really strong ties to DR, and this resort came highly recommended by several TAs) - and found a great resort which is very affordable ($1000 plus tax for the week, all inclusive). So, just shop around - are you 100% set on DR? And how many of your guests will be out if you decide to go with the Majestic or something similar? Good luck deciding, I can definitely sympathize because I have been there too.
Congrats by the way!!

I'm getting married in Puerto Plata at the Bahia Principe San Juan...we lucked out, there was a great deal on this resort with Noli Tours back in March, for 979.00 taxes in, for adults, and one child stays and flies free...we have kids coming so that was a bonus too. This promo only lasted about a week or so, booked up quick, and then jumped back up to 1400.00-1600.00/week for adults. Having a travel agent work for you is important as they can see these deals and advise you when they come up...

I know for a fact price usualy does get cheaper closer to the date,however you never know for how long the price will last, or when it goes down. It's something you have to check everyday.
Have you decided on your resort yet? I ended up choosing Grand Palladium because there are 3 resorts all together 1 royal. and right now for April it's 1278$ Might want to keep looking if you can!
