How is everyone booking their travel arrangements for themselves and their guests? Travel sites or travel agent?  If so what agents or sites did you use?  I'll probably need to book 15 rooms with about 27 guests including me and FI.

We used our travel agent, which as far as I know, is the only way they take reservations, besides hotwire, expedia and other travel sites.  I have read horror stories about booking through travel sites with them filling up and moving guests who booked through sites to other resorts as they try to keep people who booked together for weddings priority.

My parents booked a Miami vacation through a site and when they got to the hotel they were very unhappy with the accomidations and wanted to move, because they booked through a site there was nothing the hotel could do and they did not have a contact to reach out to at the site.  I suggest using a travel agent, there are many perks associated with it and then you also arent dealing with all your guests questions about travel etc.

 

A good travel agent is invaluable!

Thanks, decided to go with the travel agent. Switching subjects, has anyone had their semi-private dinner at the steak house? I heard the see & sea is nice but I don't really care to much for seafood, just wanted to know if the steak house was good. I think I read somewhere that the room was hot, but I could be wrong.

Have you seen a copy of the menu? I can send it to you, if not. The See & Sea is actually a surf and turf meal with lobster and beef. I've heard great things about both. Our wedding is November 9th, and we booked back in March/April, the steakhouse was already taken. Whichever you decide, be sure to let them know that and the reception spot as soon as possible. BTW, I noticed that you are from Northern Virginia, I live in Virginia Beach. :)  Good luck!!

Hello! My fiance and I will be staying at Majestic Elegance for a week in the beginning of February and having our wedding at the Jellyfish Restaurant.  We started planning a resort wedding and found that the times/dates we wanted were not available. Even though our wedding is not at the resort, we will all be staying there (approx. 35 guests) 

 

I wanted to know if anyone else was running into similar issues. I asked if we could have a semi-private dinner at one of the al a carte restaurants; Sandra (WC) informed us that they could book an area of the Flavors buffet for dinner. I know there was at least one other bride that had a rehearsal dinner at See and Sea for many more people (and had her wedding ceremony and reception at Jellyfish)

 

The other question I had for other brides is in regards to photographers. I understand the resorts motive to charge for outside photographers to come into the resort if you are having your wedding at the resort. However, I do not see the motive in charging $300 just for a photographer to come in for a couple of hours to take photos at the resort before leaving for the wedding ceremony and reception. When I talked to Phil S. he said that he stays at ME all the time so they do not charge him. I was hoping to use another photographer; however, it appears I may not have much choice. Has anyone else faced this problem and what was the resolution?  Couldnâ€t we just pay the day pass and get some shots before leaving for Jellyfish?

We will just miss each other! We arrive 1/30/12 and leave 2/6/12! I am so excited, but finding myself frustrated with the little details (such as photographer fees!) I just emailed our first pick photographer and asked if she is aware of any great beaches for pictures outside of the resort and not at the jellyfish (I don't want the seagrass in our pictures!)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
