    Hey jrod07,


    Did you ever find out what the "basic setup" includes for the wet/parrot bars? I'm also curious to find this out? Thanks for clarifying on the flat rate @ $500/hr for these bars as well. This option makes much better sense to me now. :)

      Per my WC Stephany:   The reception at the Wet Bar includes the basic white set up (chairs with covers, and table with table cloths). The Wet Bar tables are round and can fit up to 10 chairs per table (72 inches).

        Hi Mel,


        I haven't heard back from the WC yet.  Another bride stated that it includes the white chair covers and tablecloths.  Good luck with planning!

          If you are going to bring your own alcohol, I strongly suggest that you buy alcohol at the duty free shop flying into Punta Cana. And even have some guests do the same for you. We tried to buy alcohol when we got there and realoozed that the duty free was sooo much cheaper. We hosted a welcome cocktail party. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and hired a bartender to pour our alcohol. It saved us a ton of $$. And then we had the party set up at the piano bar instead of the parrot bar where we originally intended to have it. There is no charge to use the piano bar and $400 for the parrot bar.

          And then we brought the left over higher end alcohol with us to the bars that we hung out at and served it at the rehersal dinner as well. So we had a "high end" bar at all of our events. Saved us more than five hundred dollars.

                it is the parrot bar.  I think it holds about 35 people.  Make sure you book it with your wedding coordinator. Good luck.

                  Hi everyone


                  I find the elegance Extra's package so confusing. I wasn't going to have an open bar but if the bars are far from the wet bar, where I am having the dinner, I think I should. Does anyone know if I can just take open bar after the dinner or do I have to get it the whole time?

                    Hi Everyone,


                    I am getting married in about 55 days, and I am still a little confused about the wet bar rental/ bartender rental.  According to the information that I recieved from the Majestic.


                    We have 26 people


                    Wet bar rental $300 for the area


                    National bar....$15.00 per hour + 26% and the bartender rental is $15.00 per bartender 


                    Cost: $15 x 26 people =$390 dollars + 26% = $491.4 per hour + 45 dollars for bartender = $536.40


                    International bar....$25.00 per hour + 26% (there is not mention about a bartender rental)


                    Cost: $25 x 26 people = $650 dollars + 26% = $819 per hour (does that include the bartender??) = $819.00


                    We have booked DJ Mania and we are having dinner at the Steakhouse. 


                    Can anyone clarify if the International bar price includes the bartender or do you have to add $15.00 per hour like the national bar.  Also can anyone suggest a better package I should consider (e.g $500 dollar option or something better)


                    Thanks everyone

                      I was thinking the same thing, but then because I am not having a private reception, I thought it would be nice to be able to have music, maybe people can make speeches and drinks for an hr before dinner...I am still undecided because it seems crazy to pay 500. for a sound system and set up, becasue drinks are basically free anyway....
