    The Majestic Colonial thread is so lengthy I could not find the information I was looking for.

     

    I am having a symbolic ceremony. Do I need a wedding certificate or will a valid Canadian wedding license be sufficient?

     

    Also, if you want flowers for your cake do you pay extra or is some of that decoration included?

     

    Thanks everyone!

      I brought a copy of the Record of Solemnization, and that was sufficient for the symbolic ceremony.  As for the cake, they charge about $5 per flower for the decoration.  I brought my own cake topper and they charged me $25 for my cake decoration (see below).

       

      Hope this helps!

        Thanks so much for that info!

         

        What is a record of solemnization? Is that something they give you after you sign your wedding documents?

          Oryx, are you from Ontario? I looked up "record of solemnization" and the only information out there pertains to ON. I'm wondering if perhaps it is called something different in the other provinces. I'm from Newfoundland, perhaps there is a different name on it here or something, lol.

            Yes, I'm from Ontario.  When you complete your civil ceremony here, they should give you some sort of document saying that you were married.  They call it a Record of Solemnization here -- not sure what they call it in Newfoundland!  But I think they should also give you something?

              Thanks Ladies,

              I am also considering Majestic Colonial, it is so hard to decide!!  Can I ask you what sold you in the end on this resort if you don't mind?

                Hi Hatfiehm,

                 

                Every TA I spoke with recommended this resort among their top 3 for DW's. My mother had also travelled to the resort last year, she has been to alot of resorts, and this was one of the few she said she would return to. They do so many weddings that I figured it would take alot of the stress off me for planning and that was exactly what I was looking for.

                  Thank you aaronlori!  that was exactly what I needed to know!  They are top of my list for the reasons you listed, but I am glad to hear that is the concensus from others as well!

                   

                  thanks so much!! Happy planning gals :)

                    Everyone at this hotel really goes out of their way to make you feel special.  Just tell them that you are 'la novia' and they will treat you like a princess all week!  Also, the atmosphere was great for a group -- the resort is large enough for people to have some alone time if they wanted to, but not so big that you couldn't find people.  The beach was amazing, and the rooms were large and clean.

                     

                    The staff really know what they're doing here -- don't worry, you'll be in good hands :)

                      hatfiehm-

                      I felt really overwhelmed at first too; and had decided on the Hard Rock Punta Cana, but changed my mind after looking at prices and also finding all the great reviews on here and the facebook group about the Majestic!  I don't get married until next January, but I've also read that some brides chose the resort based solely on the fact that they could book Photophil!  I jumped on the chance to book him also and can't wait!!  I hope that helps!  Good luck!!!
