Majestic Elegance---Summer 2011

Recommended Posts

I'm panicking too.  The reviews of this resort, especially recently, have been awful.  My brother in law keeps telling me that he psyched himself out before he went (Colonial side in January) thinking it was going to be a horrible trip, but he said it wasnt bad at all. 

I feel like I'm getting more and more upset thinking about it!  God forbid someone gets terribly ill, or has money stolen, or they try to rip my guests off...I will forever feel guilty.  I have been to Mexico twice, Jamaica once...all all-inclusives, and of course things weren't horrible...but it's a different thing when you're having 50 people with you!

Hi wife2B and jamie0820 - it's all going to be ok. 

 

Just go with the flow - and have a great time.  I know my wedding is still 4 months away but from every review I've read, it will work out.  Everyone is different when it comes to levels of service, and the resorts will not be able to please all people at all times.  I've read just as many good reveiws as bad reviews on the trip sites, the best you can do is plan to deal with things if they pop up.

 

So pack extra immodium or pepto for upset stomachs, tell your guests to use their safes and not bring too much cash.  You can always cancel credit cards if they get stolen.

 

Also - everyone going is an adult, they decided to come and spend this week with all of us, it's not our duty to make sure they have a good time, but to thank them for coming to spend this special day with us. 

 

Please though, write back and tell me about your bouquets - did you get to pick them before you get there?  Just wondering, I am at the planning stage you both were 4 months ago hahaha  :)

I haven't picked my bouquet yet!  I have an idea of what I would like by looking at the pictures on picasaweb.  We pick everything when we get there apparently!

Hi There,

First of all, just wanted to say congratulations to all of the brides on here! We've booked our wedding for February 1 2012 at the Majestic Elegance at 6pm(it was the only time they had left in February when we booked last April!). I just had a few questions for you guys that have already gotten married there...We are getting married at the gazebo at 6, has anyone has problems getting photos at that time? Did you use the photographer from the hotel or arrange for someone else down there to take photos? how long do you have the photographer for? We're worried there's not going to be enough time for photos since the sun sets around 630 in february...We have booked our  dinner at the steakhouse at 8pm...does that give us enough time for photos? what did everyone do about the first dance? We currently have not rented a private area for the reception but were thinking about it...We have 28 guests though so not too sure how much that'll cost. Any help with answers to my questions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!

Hiya---

I'll be happy to answer questions, just be patient with me :)  It has only been two weeks and it feels like a blur!

 

I got married at 4 on the beach---actually it was more like 415 or 420 cause the golfcart was late picking me up.  From there we had pictures on the beach (which took longer than expected because people in their swimsuits wouldnt get the hell out of the way).  After that we went back up to the main lobby etc and got pictures all around until 6:30 which is when our reception started.  I think maybe two times my photog pulled me out of the reception for night shots, and then we shot afterwards too. 

We brought our own photographer/friend along with us.

What else?  :)
