Majestic Cocktail Party question..help

Recommended Posts

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!!!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
