    the bride and groom get the room for their wedding night but the party must shut down at 11pm. I was there in May and toured this option. It's beautiful but my fiance and I didn't want to spend all the extra money. We wanted to do the free dinner and you can still do that with the presidential suite but it seemed like such a waste of time having guests trek back and forth to this spot.

      Is there anywhere to go after 11pm? Or is the presidential suite big enough for a quiet-ish after party?

      Thanks for all the info everyone, you are the best!!

        After 11pm the disco is open. The presidential suite has a living room, dining room, kitchen, 2 bathrooms, bedroom. It's huge...but you still have to be quite because people are around and below. You could still hang out though and have a fun time. I would recommend it if you are going to pay for a private dinner, if you aren't I would think about it. It can be hard to round everyone up to go to dinner and get them over to the suite. Also you would have to consider drinks also. Doing open bar makes the most sense.

          Thanks for the info, I think I should prob just convince my FI that we should do a site visit for a few days...that would be amazing since theres 2 ft of snow on the ground in DC! haha.

          Anyway, I think we will do an open bar (regardless if its pres. suite or not..I'm not running around in my dress waiting for drinks! haha) But is it possible to buy bottles of beer or liquor for cheap anywhere? In case we wanted to do something back in our rms after the wedding since I'm assuming running back and forth to an open bar would be a little ridiculous.

          Thanks!! Ahhh I love this forum!!! :)

            Just letting you know that I called the resort today and they said CLAUDIA is no longer there... For those of you like me who have been working with her and havent received an email in a couple of days. I spoke to Wardez. The reason I called is because there was a post on Facebook indicating that brides can not bring in an outside DJ. This is only true for new brides who have yet to book. Wardez indicated that all brides who have booked would be ok with the DJ they have already contracted with. I did express my frustration with now having to work with another wedding coordinator. I know this is not their fault but can be a bit stressful when you feel as though you have to re-communciate your details to someone new.

              You don't have to be in the DR for any specific amount of time before marrying. I am also getting married on a Friday and we are flying in on Wednesday. I think you will have plenty of time to plan and not a lot of time to be nervous :). Then, you have LOTS of time to chill and celebrate after your big day!
              Thank you for the assurance! :)

                Our ceremony is scheduled at 2pm at the gazebo and dinner is not until 6:30 so we are planning on doing our "first dances" in the gazebo immediately following the ceremony. And then getting appetizers to have with the champagne toast next to the gazebo.

                Has anyone done this before?? I feel like it's silly to rent an area for only 15 guests and 3 special dances.

                The WC has ok'd it but I'm always fearful that she is just okay-ing me and then when we get down there she will be like....you can't do that. lol

                Thanks,
                Nicole
                Hi Nicole! You are a day before me! I'm on the 14th, also at the gazebo. (are you at Colonial or Elegance?) What a fantastic idea for the post ceremony. I was going to forego "first dance" since we are having the dinner at the steak restaurant...

                  Has anyone done "first dance" at one of the restaurants during the free dinner reception? Is it possible?

                    Has anyone had experience with the fire dancers or cigar rollers at the Majestic?
                    FH and I would love to incorporate both of these into our day.... just not sure if worth the money.
                    Thanks for any input!

                      Does anyone know anything about the "live bands" there? I don't have a big crowd, and I know they won't really be into dancing, so I wanted to have a band...something carribean sounding!
