    All i have to say is that Mayte is AMAZING!!!!! She is so super busy making everyones day special! i just don't know how she does it. She exceded all of my expectations on every detail i sent her. we had 30ppl at our wedding and it was perfect. We had pastor york, photophil as our photographer and dj mannia. AquaCait, we were there on your wedding day for our meeting, everything looked so beautiful, congrats! We opted to do al carte, which was perfect! Mayte, reprinted a menu for us. I asked her to remove any appetizers and  any dish over $30 per plate. everyone was so pleased to have so many options. if you have any questions, just let me know.

            I LOVE your set up and colors -- also very similar to ours.  You look beautiful!  Congratulations!!  I'm happy to hear that the food at the Majestic Elegance is good, too...I was worried.

              Sunshine your wedding was beautiful! Quick question on the menu. I want to do the same thing as you, does the meals include any sides or should I budget for that as well? Also your pictures are amazing. Do you have contact information for Photo Phil for me?

                Sunshine, your wedding looked amazing! I'm so glad you had such a great time! You look stunning and so happy in that photo. :)

                 

                Did you end up renting out the restaurant exclusively? We also asked Mayte about doing an a la carte menu but she said that it really slows down if you have more than 20 people. Did you find the food slow to come out, or was it not bad because you had the set items under $30 on the menu?

                  Hi laurenann,

                   

                  I had a small ceasar salad for everyone for starters for dinner, then everyone had the option to pick from the revised jellyfish menus that Mayte made for us. Now keep in mind that the menu was altered to just a dinner menu everything $30 and under (which was pretty much everything on the menu minus lobster dishes and so on), and also minus any appetizers as well. For the cocktail hour on the beach i had them pass around buttery shrimp (bacon wrapped) wrapped in bacon, chicken strips and hot pockets (spinach and ricotta cheese) all delicious!!! Some of my guest ordered the filet mignon and jellyfish steak and said it was amazing... as well as the fish entrees. For 30 guests just dinner al la carte alone came to around $960 (ceasar salad included), which was less than i was hoping for. Our ceremony stared at 6:00p.m. so we did our welcome drink, wine and beer for the cocktail hour and dinner as well. Then from 9:00-11:00 open bar (no one really drinks hard liquor during dinner anyways). Their set menu 1 would have put us over alone. In my opinion this is definitely the way to go. You can reach photophil at www.steingardstudios.com. Not sure if he will still be down in D.R. around July since he's from Canada tho. Any more questions please just ask! :)

                    Hi cinnagirl,

                     

                    Thank you!! I was also considering to rent the jellyfish exclusively. Iam happy i didn't, since i didn't feel like it was worth the extra money personally. Mayte told me it really wasn't worth it and she was sooo right. She told me anyone eating upstairs (which i didn't even  notice) would be escorted right out. Actually, it was Mayte who suggested we do a la carte instead. We only had 30ppl. So much better this way since it wasn't so many people. Everything came out in a orderly fashion except those who ordered the filet mignon, maybe 4 guests in total, but that was only a 5 minute delay. This gave our guest so many options and they were so pleased not to have a set menu! Any other questions please just ask ;)
