Darcy,

I've heard that the process is quite detailed (particular paperwork, translation requirements, etc.) so for that reason my husband and I eloped in Hawaii and are having a big wedding in Punta Cana at the Jellyfish in April. I didnt want to risk not having something right and it not legalized in the States so we took the safe route.

For those of you that had your dance floor set up outside; Did Mayte set up a bar outside or were your guests going back inside anytime they wanted a drink? Did the outside dance floor cause any separation between your guests or was the entire group ok with being outside?

 

Thank you

 

yes, there was a bar set up outside by the dancefloor

Hey ladies!

Can anyone tell me what the maximum capacity is in the restaurant for eating and dancing? The restaurant looks small and my list is growing.

Thanks!

I'm new to this thread, however we are thinking about the Jellyfish Reception + Dreams Palm Beach Symbolic ceremony for next June 2014. Has and one split it into two places? We figure if we will be at the resort for the 10 days we should take advantage of the complementary ceremony and put more towards the open bar and dinner options. We will be hosting about 45 guests.

Been looking and looking for the perfect song to walk with my dad down the isle to marry the love of my life. I found the song. "They Fell in Love."  Here is a video of  it, I love how they both stand at the top and wait for the violins to start. It's very moving. The music gives you time to hug your dad and for my love to shake my dad's hand. Ahhhhhh.  I saw the tears in the crowd. Those violins just move me and are going to move my guest as well. I downloaded it and it sounds AMAZING vs the video.  It's that perfect moment with the perfect music. here is the youtube video

and where you can buy it.  http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/christineborgeld     I wish you all the best with finding the music for your day.  HUGS

Majestic-Vendor on site-to pay fees or not... We are staying at the Majestic Elegance for our Feb 28th -2014 wedding. We are getting married at the Jellyfish, so I have opted not to pay any outside vendor fees for makeup/photographer to come onsite. I would rather put that money towards upgarded items for the reception. I am going to use the bride room that was just completed at the Jellyfish to get ready and I have requested for Anna N. (Makup/hair) to come there. It also allows me time to check on the progress of set-up etc...to ensure it is the way I want it and I can work with Mayte in person for any last minute changes or updates...IE: weather/additonal guests etc.... I plan to arrive at the JF around 10am. I have opted not to use much time for "getting ready" photos..honestly this is my second marriage and I had 2 hrs of getting ready in my room and various shots of drinking champagne with bridal party.. for the first wedding and those photos have styed in a box since the day I recevied them..I never framed any or put any of them out. THey were really great to look at but that is about it...I preferred to have reception photos framed. I would rather use my time allotment for full reception converage thatn me in my bra getting into my dress...

I need some help with pricing. I am wondering if anyone who is staying at the Majestic Resorts has, or is planning on having, a photographer and stylist come to the resort prior to leaving for the Jellyfish and what the vendor cost is (seeing as neither of them are staying there longer than 2-3 hours and we are not getting married on their property)?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

 

Rachel

 

Forgot to "quote" you when I replied to your question..please see last page of thread regarding off site vendors at Majestic :)

I just checked with Mayte and asked if we could come to Jellyfish to start getting ready at 10. She said we couldn't come until 12 to start getting ready.

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
