        And my last question sorry to be a pain..is the one thats driving me the craziest right now, did you use a travel agent for your guests or had everyone book it themselves?
        Thank you!! The resort is gorgeous, isn't it! And the food is very good for an AI!!!

        I would totally recommend the hair people...our wedding was at Colonial, so I used that spa. I am very picky about my hair because I hate it, and I could not have been happier with the job that she did!!

        We did use a travel agent - hubby's aunt is one, so we used her. It was actually my first time using a travel agent - usually I just book things on my own - but we had some people going who had never traveled out of the country, or were older (like hubby's 87 year old grandpop that came!) and we knew that they would feel much more comfortable booking with an agent rather than trying to figure it out themselves. So that's what made us go with one! Good luck!!

        Alie - Photo souvenir is based out of Punta Cana. Their website is Punta Cana Destination wedding photography
        They rock!!!

          THhnks for the great review, we're very close to booking majestic for our wedding and this really helps.

          I have two questions, how are the rooms? Are they clean and is the bed comfortable? (There's been some bad reviews on TA lately)

          And is photosouvenir expensive? We're on a tight budget too and don't want to spend more than $1000. If you could share the price of your package that would be helpful, if you'd rather not it's ok.

            Yeah, your pics are amazing. I was actually wondering the same thing as Vallarta...what are their prices like?> I looked on the website, but they don't list anything.

              Oh Mel! I'm so sorry to hear about the problems. The weather can play a huge role in the outcome of the wedding. Everyone has a specific idea of what they want when they go away, but we don't ever take into consideration "what if it rains".

              When my friend got married, they didn't get breakfast in bed either. For their "romantic dinner on the beach" (which was set up beautifully), they were escorted down to the table, napkins placed in their laps, & wine was opened for them. They felt special. The waiter left and they ate some buns. Then a few minutes later they were told to leave because it was supposed to be a set up for someone else. Sandra was supposed to arrange everything, but it didn't happen. They were sent to Tres Cabrales (and they hate seafood), and didn't get to chose what they wanted to eat.

              I've been thinking of you and your wedding! I hope that you will be able to put the sad parts behind you and just remember the rest of the awesome week that you had there.
              Kelly & Pablo

              Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

                Here is the link to Photo Souvenir's 2010 prices:
                2010 packages
                They are so amazing - I still cannot stop looking at my pictures, I've watched my slideshow a bunch of times, and can't wait to frame the painting!!!
                The rooms are VERY clean at Majestic!!! They are just gorgeous. The beds are not the most comfortable in the world, but they get the job done! The king size beds are HUGE too, so that's nice!!!
                Thanks Kelly!!! We have definitely put the bad parts behind us, I just wanted to be as honest and specific in my review as possible!!! All in all, it was such an amazing day! You must be getting so excited for your big day - it will be here before you know it!!!
                Never thought I'd say this, but I actually miss the planning!!!

                      Hi Melwhip,

                      I am planning to book MC for my wedding next July, do you suggest picking a day with no other wedding on the same day? I can't believe what happened to you, now I'm afraid of booking the date. Maybe their not so experienced and might mess up my wedding too! Please give me your opinion if you were to do it all over again. thx
