Really Upset, and Really Need Advice...(Majestic Colonial)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! My name is Brendali! I am really hoping you guys can help me out, I am completely frustrated and at wits end and ready to just go down to civil court :-(. I had my HEART set on the Majestic Colonial for May 2011. I contacted the hotel January 1, 2010 requesting May 14, 2011, and an alternate date of May 7.

 

The WC, Yadilis, emailed me telling me the judge is not taking dates for that far in advance and to contact her again in May.

 

Now please help me understand how on Friday I got an email from her informaing me that now the entire month of May is BOOKED?!!

 

I understand that they can book symbolic weddings, however, does this mean they booked an entire month of nothing BUT symbolic weddings? This doesnt seem right to me.

 

Anyone can help or offer advice on this?

Hi Brendali,

 

Sorry to hear about your situation, how frustrating! I am also hoping to book the Majestic Colonial and got a similar e-mail about booking February 2011 (she said to resubmit my request in February 2010).

 

Is it possible that there was a miscommunication? Maybe she got confused and reread the e-mail and thought it was about May 2010?

 

I don't know... this is kind of freaking me out now too!

My guess is she misread something and is saying that May 2010 is full. I am almost 100% positive that May 2011 has not even been started yet.

 

They never book more than a year in advance. I think you'll be fine. Although they speak and understand English, you still have to simplify things. Use very basic words. I don't even use ' when I send them emails. I say do not, instead of don't.

 

Just make your email like your writing to a 8 year old. Don't use extra words that aren't needed.

 

Good luck!

Yes I think the ladies above me are right. They usually dont book wedding dates more than a year in advance, so they must have mistaken the dates when they sent you the email. Dont worry you should be fine. Just send them another email and verify with them that its not for 2010 but for 2011.

Good luck!

Thank you so much for your advice ladies.

What worries me is that I speak SPANISH! I spoke to them in SPANISH on all emails as well as on the phone when I called yesterday. I spoke to a wedding coordinator yesterday via the phone, in spanish, and she was just as baffled as I was. I have not received an email yet, so I am going to call back today and see if I can straighten this out.

 

Honestly, if thats the case, I wont choose another date. If this is my first experience with them as a resort, I will just have to concede and find somewhere else :-(

Ok, that makes sense. Thanks for the update! I'm glad you can still get your date :)

That's great news and mixing up the years is something I know I've done before. I'm so happy you were able to resolve the issues.

 

Congrats and happy planning.

    • 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?
