    As for invitations, we opted out of sending actual paper invites and our Travel Agent actually set up a website (like an e-invite) with an online booking form/resort info/travel details for guests. I either invited people beforehand via Facebook or by phone. So far we have 35 people booked and are expecting about 10 more. We are only sending invites to family/relatives for the formality sake.

    For those getting married at Majestic...are you doing a private reception? If so, which location? I was thinking about doing it at the Parrot Bar.
    i am doing a private reception either at the Parrot Bar of the Wet Bar depending on how many people we have.

    wow, you already have 35 people booked? you are on the ball! i don't even have my invites out (they will be out by the beginning of May)..

    i am getting married a few weeks after you, but good luck getting phil. i am sure there are lots of brides who would love to share him :)

      Thanks Pam...but it was stressful making sure everyone put their deposits in on time. I'm just glad that part is over and now the fun part of planning begins. I'm trying to give myself a deadline of May 1 to have my dress picked out and ordered (not an easy task)!

      How many people are you expecting?

        in all honesty, i don't know!

        we didn't do save the dates, but the word spread quickly to those who are close to us (good old facebook!)..

        we will invite probably about 120 and expect maybe 50?

        i have a heap of weight to lose and don't want to try on dresses until i am down a bit, so i will be cutting it close for dress ordering...i hope to have it done by the end of july. eeek, the stress!

              It really is a beautiful resort! And the staff were wonderful when I was there for my visit. Fiance & I were also impressed with the quality of people who were vacationing there. (unlike those staying at the cheaper resort we stayed at for a few nights...ugh some people just have no respect for others)

                Pam, I wouldn't wait too long to order a dress- some designers can take 6-9 months to get in, plus you want enough time for alterations too. I'm sure it'll all work out though. You'll have so much fun shopping for your dress!

                MediPea- Do you think the Parrot bar or the Wet bar would be better for a private reception? I'm so glad you enjoyed your visit, can't wait to see it for myself!

                  i am thinking of getting a knockoff from asia, and they take only about 45 days...so that is why i am waiting a bit. risky - i know!!

                  ...as for the Wet Bar/Parrot Bar, i think it is just a matter of how many people you will have. they usually suggest the Parrot for under 40 people, and Wet Bar for 40+ guests

                      have you seen the Majestic Picasa page? this could help you:

                      Picasa Web Albums - Weddingbymajestic...

                      there are tons of different photos there.

                      i have also gone through about 3000 pics of the Majestic Colonial on the facebook page and posted a few to my personal blog to help me make up my own mind. you can check it out at:

                      barefoot wedding: Reception - Parrot Bar?
                      barefoot wedding: Reception - Wet Bar?

                      they look similar. hope that helps!!
