In room elopement at Majestic?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I've been lurking here for a bit & yall are so incredibly informative that I've now made my mind up to def have a symbolic ceremony in Punta Cana :)


We're thinking of just having a symbolic elopemenet sorta speak with just the two us, or a very small wedding party. We don't want anything elaborate and I'm not picky about details. However, we want to get a great photographer but really don't want to spend the extra $$$ on the $1750 Majestic wedding package that we really don't want or need.


Does anyone think it would be possible to just book a suite and hire our own pastor and photographer, and have the ceremony in our suite then take pictures around the resort? I know in Vegas people do this all the time, but I'm just not sure if the Majestic would permit us to have our own vendors there and then take pics around the property. Any help would be *greatly* apprecited!!!


Thanks so much!

We just got back from the Majestic, and it seems as though you could do that. We were upgraded to the Presidential Suite - gorgeous! - and if you have a room like that I don't see why you couldn't have a private ceremony there since our room actually had the same terrace as the Presidential Suite that they rent out for weddings. I didn't see the other rooms, but I would imagine that any one with a larger terrace would be fine. You can have your own vendors, but they charge a $300 fee for outside photographers now so even though they say it is a fee that the photographer has to pay, I'm sure the photographers add that into their price now. However, we used Photosouvenir and I cannot recommend them highly enough. They will model your package however you want, so I would email them if one of their traditional packages doesn't fit what you are looking for. I hope this all makes sense - I am still adjusting to real life after spending two weeks at the Majestic!

Thanks for the response! It's so hard to decide with the planning...especially when you can't really customize the packages for things you don't want or need.


I hope you had a wonderful Majestic wink.gif wedding!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
