    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 wedding!
