I am so glad I found your post. I am going to be booking at the Majestic (hopefully) in a short time. I am also from NYC and of Russian background so most of my guests will be as well.
I would love to see if you have any suggestions (although you gave a great recap in your description). What would you do differently, how was the decor, who did you work with!! I tend to have big taste on a small budget so I am really concerned about what we would really be getting in terms of decor and all that. Did you have live music... what are the high lights of the experience....etc... What did you bring with you?? Did you lug it all there? How are the DJ's and how did photos come out! I would love love love to pick your brain!!
Funny enough, Didi is doing my sisters hair and make up for her November wedding but we are on a semi-tight budget so I don't think I can fly him out all the way to DR!
Please search me out on face book if it is more convenient to chat there!!
I look forward to your response.

I am also curious how you get things to the DR. From my understanding shipping is pricey, so it is recommended to bring things on the plane.... However, I was curious if you had any trouble getting the water bottles into the DR?!?!?! I also liked the idea of bringing a margarita mix for the OOT bags, but thought I wouldnt be able to bring food into another country....
Also, anyone know how the music works for the ceremony? Do we bring a CD or does the resort supply the music? Does the wedding coordinator handle playing it, etc?!?!?
Also since you did a 3.5 hour dinner reception with a DJ, did they keep the beer and wine flowing? Or did they stop after the dinner and when it was just dancing?
You mentioned the Elegance Club manager arranged dinner on the beach. Was this something you had to purchase or was it free?
Did you stay in the oceanfront room with indoor/outdoor jacuzzi or the swim-up garden view with indoor outdoor jacuzzi? How did the 2 balconies work exactly?

Also, what decorations from your pictures were provided and what did you have to pay for? How much was the package you chose?

Who are you using as your photographer, I am shopping around at the moment and want to see what other brides are going with. This is the most important aspect for me!!

I am using Phil Steingard... He quated me $2600 for the entire day of coverage and a trash the dress session. I know he is looking for other brides during that time period since there are only 2 of us. My wedding is 3/3/11 and the other brides is 3/5/11. I hope that helps. You can also find him on facebook.
