    He charges $350. We're trying to decide what to do because I feel like it's steep for a 10-minute symbolic ceremony.  But not sure I want a friend to do it.. hard to decide!

    Wow! He's making a killing out there. Lol. I might have to reconsider my career and location . :0)-

        Yes, there's still only a 2014 price list.  Someone posted on the FB page that they had a 2014 price list but wanted to check with Mayte before sharing. I asked her directly and she said "That´s not true, I have not 2014 list, because i don´t change the prices until that happends, if is not change?? I preferd to wait for the increase, but I let you know all of you on time."

        Just wondering if you could put a link to this FB page. Apparently there are a few on FB but it seems like the one you are on is the one that Mayte posts on.

                We just had our wedding reception at Jellyfish Restaurant and LOVED IT!!  Just wanted to do a review on what we did...

                 

                A few days before the wedding we went to Jellyfish to finalise everything.  We were welcomed with a big hug from Mayte.  So great to meet her after only exchanging emails.  We had a food testing of everything being served (we didn't ask for) and everything tasted amazing.  We asked Mayte if she recommended any other d'oeuvre and she suggested one with tomatoes, bocchini cheese and bread.  It was to die for!  The bacon wrapped shrimp were also great.  Go hungry!!  There was so much food we couldn't eat all of it.  We also tried several drinks to pick a welcome drink and cocktail drink.  All were very good as well.  We discussed the look of the reception and Mayte said what we was thinking based off pictures I've sent her over the last few months.  For the wedding she made all those pictures come to life!  Mayte took a bit from every single picture (even one I hand drew) and made the restaurant look amazing.  Also at the testing we asked Mayte if she had a picture frame to put a picture of my husband's mom in it.  She passed away 3 years ago and we wanted her to have some presence at the wedding without talking about it and getting upset.  Mayte let us take a picture frame with us so we could use it for the ceremony at the resort and at the reception at the restaurant.  The reception had the picture and a little msg in a picture frame.  It was perfect. 

                 

                We did the ceremony at Majestic Colonial gazebo that is far from the beach.  There isn't much of a breeze there, but the one on the beach is surrounded by people on the beach suntanning and picking their weggies so I am glad we didn't do it there.  It is much cooler at the beach though.  The gazebo closer to the main building is much more private and fit all 50 guests perfectly and it was beautiful.  We brought the cake that Majestic Colonial made to Jellyfish (which was actually really good) and Mayte had the cake decorated more by adding real purple roses to add to the colour theme.  If we didn't get a free ceremony at the resort I would have done the ceremony at Jellyfish as well.  We didn't get anything else from the resort for bringing 50 people over so at least we got a free ceremony.  We liked Majestic Colonial, but I'd rate it 7/10.  The service wasn't great and many of our guests got ill during the week.

                 

                Jellyfish was so beautiful inside and out.  It was exactly what we wanted.  Mayte also wore a Canadian t-shirt that we had brought her on the food testing day.  She is adorable!  Everyone loved the restaurant itself.  It was great to get off the resort for a change of scenery, and go somewhere more private for the reception.  First we went over with the wedding party and our parents to take some pictures with the photographer.  We went with Blue Lagoon (and used Manuel from there - he was amazing) because the prices were great and the pictures were as well.  I'd recommend not going over with everyone at first so you can get pictures done with that group first.  We did that for an hour then the rest of the group go there and we greeted everyone at the door.  They only saw inside the restaurant at first and loved it.  They grabbed their drink at the door as well and headed out the back to the lounge area and beach.  The weather was good when we got there but a hurricane was supposed to be rolling in later that night for the next 2 days.  Luckily it ONLY rained for our first dance and that was it.  It was so breezy on the beach from the storm approaching that it was actually really nice outside while we all danced.  But i should mention it was also quite breezy when we were a few days before for the food sampling. The hurricane ended up missing us which was a relief!  

                 

                The dj was really good.  Not sure what his name was but it was the default that Mayte usually uses.  He took all requests and played a great mix of music.  Friends said they would make a request and that would be the next song played.  The music during dinner was also very nice and relaxing.  We were scared it was going to be island music but it was perfect.

                 

                We had 2 buses bring people into Jellyfish from Majestic Colonial.  One for the wedding party and one for the rest of the group.  There were guys with guns in the drive way (and I think on the very sides of the beach).  Don't be scared, they are purely there to ensure the group is okay.  Most people didn't even notice them unless they were pointed out.  On the way back we had 3 buses, but originally only going to have 1. A few people were ill from food at the resort or too much sun earlier in the week and needed to go back early.  Without it being an issue, the 1 bus turned into 3.  All had air conditioning and were comfy rides.

                 

                My husband and I both said it was the best day of our lives and wouldn't have changed a thing.  Mayte is amazing and I'd 100% recommend doing you wedding there.  All the best with your planning!!!
