    Hey ladies,

    Thank you so much for your help even though you may not know that you have been helping me with the decision process since October 2008 :-)

    We have finally decided and booked Majestic Colonial for May 13, 2010!!!

    My question is.....We wanted to pay for a cocktail hour immediately following the ceremony. I have emailed the WC a million times and haven't gotten an answer back. I see how much it is for the open bar option but how much for the hors'derves??

    We just wanted that hour to do the cake, do dances (mother/father & first) and then head to the free dinner option. The only time available is 2pm so it sort of put a wrench in the whole time flow....What did anyone else do??

    Did anyone else just do the semi-private free dinner and just decorate the table so sort of set it apart??

    THANKS IN ADVANCE EVERYONE!!!

      Hi Nicole,

      We are getting married May 18, 2010 but are arriving May 14 and leaving May 28 so maybe I'll see you! But we are getting married at 3pm in the Gazebo then taking pics with the guests and doing our beach pics (we are doing pics before the ceremony too). Our photographer Phil Steingard recommended doing pics before and after since the best time for beach pics is at 6pm. At 7ish we are doing the free dinner. We then booked the parrot bar after dinner for cake, dances, speeches and partying. We felt that if we had to pay open bar it was better utilized here and would give us privacy. Have you thought about this? How many people do you have?

        Thanks for your thoughts :-)

        Our guest list is so up in the air right now. We have invited 95, 12 are booked and we are estimating maybe 30....lol

        I was thinking about doing the "party" at one of the bars and just set up our bose iPod docking thing. Yeeeeah I think you are right. That is the best way. Did you already book and tell the WC?? Should I do that now or wait till we get there??

        Is there anyway to fast forward to May?? lol

        Thanks again!!!
