My fiance and I are having a civil ceremony @ Majestic Elegance on June 29, 2011. (SUPER EXCITED!) My WC is Stephany and she is amazing. I email her at least once a day with all my questions and she is sooo good about getting back to me and making me relaxed. We are having our ceremony @ the gazebo ( I heard the beach ceremonies tend to draw a large- uninvited- crowd). We are doing the included dinner at Asadito. The semi-private dinner can only be held at one of 2 restaurants (Asadito- steak, or the Sea & See). I can email you the set menu's for Asadito and the Sea & See for the included dinners. I'm not using a travel agent. I've found that for group deals everyone would have to be on the exact same flights and booked for the same days at the hotel. I don't want to force travel arrangements on anyone, so I've suggested they look at Apple/Expedia ect for the best deal. The extra's seem soo expensive. I'm not sure what your budget is, so I would just weigh what I want with what I can afford. We are not paying that much money for food and drinks @ an all inclusive. I believe I will add the ceremony decoration package for $348. It includes chair sashes, isle runner, and vases with flowers to line the isle (then they move these to the dinner tables). What I'm working on right now is getting our passports. You have to have a lot of paperwork (single status affidavit) and it all has to be sent to the Dominican to be translated ($125 for bride, $125 for groom). The website www.wedo.com.do will help you with the paperwork. If you have the money, check out PhotoPhil for your photography. He lives in Canada and charges $1,000 plus travel arrangements. I could never afford this, but his website is AMAZING! The resort has a photographer/videographer that they exclusively use. They charge $300 to bring in an outside vendor. My cousin is a photographer for Hot Topic in LA and she will be taking our photos (undercover of course b/c I'm not paying $300 for my cousing to take our pics). We will probably use their videographer (charges $350 for the ceremony only). The symbolic ceremony is $500 cheaper than the legal ceremony (but you have to present your marraige certificate to do the symbolic) so you could save some money to splurge on extras! I hope you're having as much fun planning this as I am! Also check out http://picasaweb.goo...majesticresorts for some wedding pics! Happy Planning and feel free to contact me anytime!
