Majestic Elegance wedding review – January 2010

Recommended Posts

Iâ€ve been slacking off a little bit but here is my review for my wedding that took place last month at the Majestic Elegance.


Travel / Dress transportation


We were delayed 5 hours, with not much information from the airline (thank you Skyservice!!!!) but apart from that the ride was as comfortable as it can be travelling on a budget airline. I put my dress in the overhead compartment and didnâ€t have any problems with it at all. When we arrived in Punta Cana the dress was barely wrinkled.




Iâ€ve been to Punta Cana a couple of times and this was my favourite place. Itâ€s a smaller hotel and I preferred that personally. We stayed at the Elegance Club with all our guests and felt that the upgrade was worth the money. We had access to a private Club lounge that had snacks all day, 6 computers with access to the internet, lounging area with a flatscreen and lots of water/pop/champagne. At this same Club lounge there was a representative until 11pm to help you with anything you wanted (movie rental, special requests, check out). I truly felt that this was totally worth the extra money; we never had to go to the front desk since everything was dealt with at the Club lounge.


We were upgraded to an ocean view room, which we were very thankful for since another couple we met who arrived a couple of days after us did not get an upgrade at all (they were getting married too). The rooms are very modern and spacious with big beds, big bathtubs and flatscreen tv. Our room had a separate living room with flatscreen and we had a flatscreen in our bedroom. Housekeeping was spotty sometimes but from personal experience travelling down south itâ€s like that everywhere, thereâ€s always one day where they come to do your room and donâ€t leave you shampoo or body wash! Every night they left us something special (sushi plate, fruit platter, champagne) so that made us feel special and we appreciated it.

We ate at all the restaurants and they were all exceptional. We often had lunch at the Sea & See and there was always something for everyoneâ€s taste. The hotel is very well set up, you donâ€t have very far to walk to go eat or go to the beach or the pool. The Elegance Club had itâ€s own private pools and we spent a lot of time there in the insanely awesome Bali beds! Another awesome thing from this resort, room service!!! We ordered breakfast almost every day and it always came within 20 minutes. The food was always good (albeit sometimes a bit lukewarm but that didnâ€t bug me).


Wedding preparation


I personally did not have a great experience with the wedding coordinator but I wouldnâ€t hold it against the hotel. When we checked in at the hotel we had a letter from the wedding coordinator (Claudia) to meet her on Monday at 10am. She showed up at 11am, and then proceeded to tell me that the meeting was scheduled for 11am (even though I had a letter from her, signed by her, where it clearly said 10am). We went through the details with her and she listened to what we wanted. I had a surprise when it came to the flowers. She had sent me the album in advance and I had picked what I wanted but told her I would confirm when we arrived. When I told her which flowers I wanted, she told me those would not be included in the wedding package and I would have to pay extra. Funny how she never mentioned that before even though I had asked about that specific kind of flower. I was very disappointed to have to make a decision on the spot but ended up choosing another kind of flower and they were very beautiful. I paid to have bridesmaids bouquets, they were alright, the flowers were a little bit wilted when we got them. The resort steamed my dress and ironed my DHâ€s attire, this was a great service and it was delivered in the morning to our room. The flowers were also delivered to our room in advance.


Wedding day


We didnâ€t get up really early, we just relaxed, had room service for breakfast and went our own ways. Itâ€s important to note that this resort does NOT offer transportation to the wedding gazebo on the beach so itâ€s a good idea to go plot your course before the wedding day otherwise you may get lost. All the girls got ready in our room and we had a great time having a couple of drinks and eating room service (mmmmm fruit platter). I had my makeup and hair done by friends so I cannot comment on the spa for those services. We had a really good time hanging out, taking pictures of everyone getting ready. I was late leaving the room (surprise surprise!), we walked from our room to the other side of the resort where the gazebo is. The wedding coordinator was very useless when it came to the ceremony as she did not direct me where to go. I was just standing there trying to hide myself so that the groom couldnâ€t see me and she was just standing there doing nothing. Once the music started I was dancing with my dad in our little waiting area while the bridesmaids started walking down the aisle. The music was very audible, they have a good sound system! The aisle is marked with little palm leaves sticking out and they had put flowers petals all the way down the aisle. The gazebo setup is really amazing, itâ€s not just material hanging from a four post structure. The wedding was fast, 5 minutes (I love it!). The judge was very nice to us, congratulating us with hugs and kisses after the ceremony. We had a champagne toast which was really nice. We did photos with our guests, then the wedding party, then only us. Our wedding was at 3:00 and our dinner reservation was for 6:30. This gave our guests time to go relax before supper, which was great. The dinner was amazing, it was at the steakhouse Asadito. The service was amazing, the food was amazing and the cake was amazing. I had told the coordinator that I wanted something simple and thatâ€s what I got. I paid to have a couple flowers put on the cake and those turned out great. After supper there was a karaoke night at the main plaza, we hung out there and danced the night away. We had so much fun just relaxing and drinking with our guests without being stuck in a small dingy place with music thatâ€s way too loud (AKA the disco). We snuck back to our room and they had put the honeymooners sign on our door and had run a bath with flower petals. The next day we were booked for a romantic dinner for 2 at the Sea & See. The only disappointing part about the dinner is that itâ€s a set menu. We really wanted to be able to chose our own food and eat lobster! It was cute, they set up a table with flowers and champagne, it was a nice moment for new husband and wife to have dinner alone! We were also given a certificate for 2 free massages. I ended up going with a friend and the spa was amazing!


Iâ€m sure Iâ€m forgetting some stuff but if you have any questions feel free to send me a message!

Great review! I emailed the Elegance for info on their package, but no answer yet. Question: did you have to pay extra for the dinner reservations in the restaurant? If so, how much because they don't seem to offer a dinner in their package.. :/

I don't know if something changed but they used to offer a free dinner in the colonial steak or seafood restaurants and the elegance side too.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.

    • Hi, I am getting married after one year. I have tons of planning to do and very little time. Planning a wedding can be difficult especially when there is less time. I have to do a lot of things on my own and at the same time work overtime to earn more money. Recently when I was hanging out with my close friends, I noticed that my friend who had crooked teeth like mine had perfect teeth now. I was surprised to see that I asked her that what did you do for a sudden change. She said that she tried Invisalign braces and had a change with her smile within a short time. I told about this to my bf and he also told me to give a try for it. I took an appointment with a dentist in Aurora. I don't know whether there will be a  change within a short time. What can you say on this? Am I taken a good decision?
    • Hi, I'm in a relationship with a guy who is in my college. He is planning to migrate from our area and he wants to marry me before he leaves. He is well planned for our marriage. He accompanied me for all the wedding shopping and was supporting me a lot. But there was an unexpected accident and I fell down hitting the floor. I was taken to the nearby clinic for getting the emergency dental care  from a clinic in Toronto. My front canine was lost after the accident and I think I need to get dentures before my wedding. Or according to your opinion what can be done other than dentures?
