Majestic Colonial/Elegance Brides 2012-2013

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies! welcome.gif I thought I would start a new fresh thread for all the 2012 and 2013 brides as there has been so many updated changes what is allowed and in pricing, rules and additionals.. 

This way all information we read is new and were not following advice from the old threads that is no longer allowed for the resort and all info is up to date and useful :)

 

Should we start with a roll call?  Dates, Times & Locations? 

I'm January 23, 2013  2PM @ The Gazebo :)

 

Looking forward to sharing planning details, questions and everything Majestic with you all :)

 

Cheers!!  cheers.gif

Hi my name is Nicole. I just commented on the old thread but then I seen this one. The Colonial is on my "short list" of resorts. We are getting married in February or March 2013. What made you choose the Colonial? I emailed my TA to tell her we wanted a DW and she sent me back one in Jamaica, one in Mexico and one in the DR (the Colonial). 

 

I'm confident we should go to Punta Cana but what made you pick THIS resort?

Hi Nicole!  For myself it was an easy choice..  My brother was married at the Elegance back in 2009 

( Colonials sister resort) and I vacationed at the Colonial back in 2008..  ( I actually met my fiance the day I returned home!  lol )

 

My choice wasn't hard.  I looked at what was most important to me.  My choice had to be a child friendly resort.

(my son will be 3 and a half and my nephew 2 at the time of our travel) 

 I viewed all the information on the kids activities, areas and reviews and I was sold. 

 

I didn't want to invite +60 guests anywhere that I have never been before not being confident of service & food. 

 With my past experience,  my brothers wedding being absolutely perfect in every way and knowing my parents have also vacationed there themselves a few other times I am confident in my choice;

 

When I was there the food was really good and the service was outstanding! The resort itself is beautiful!  There are really funny entertainment shows they do ( I saw a michael jackson one that I found pretty neat ) and a variety of things to do...  I figured having over 5 different vacations at the resort throughout my family with all good feedback was a good sign :)  There are so many reviews that confirmed this was a right choice for me. 

The wedding planners I have already been in contact with so far are awesome, very helpful & full of information. 

I guess my best advice would be to look into the resorts/wedding packages and see which one fits youand your vision best :)  Good Luck!

i was just married at the Elegance yesterday, it was a nice calm wedding, but the best decision I made was having my reception at La Barcaza! It was amazing! If I could have only paid for 2 more hours..it was sooooo much fun!

 

Don't worry future brides! My guests loved it here, very relaxing. A few HATED...not disliked...HATED all the food here except for the steak restaurant....just to forewarn you.  I felt the same....but its a all inclusive resort...I made due :)

 

The cowboy ribeye at the steakhouse is the BEST! I highly recommend it!

 I'm so glad you enjoyed it!  Are you going to write a review or share some pictures!  What wedding package did you pick?  Did you do any special add ons.  Do you have any tips?

 

I just got my pricing from my TA and I am deciding between the ME and the Gran Bahia Esmeralda!  It's going to be a tough decision.

Soo glad I was following Punta Bride and found this thread... lol...   :o)

 

We was planning to get married at Atlantis/cloister in the Bahamas but now We are looking at getting married at Majestic Elegance on May 29th, 2013 @ the Gazebo.. Thinking maybe a 4:00 ceremony.. Wasn't sure of a good time but I don't want a big gap between the ceremony and dinner.

 

We just got our group rates from our TA the other night and ME sent my TA 9 attachments if anyone wants them. (I can post or email)  But they seem to be the same info as Heidi aka "Tink" and Cindy from here had sent me. These ladies just had a little bit more info purtaining to reception dinners.

I've stocked you and subscribed to a few threads you were on too haha

 

I want a late afternoon ceremony as well.  No earlier than 4:00.  I think this is a good time for a few reasons ...

 

-Not as hot

-Not as many people gawking (a lot are gone back to their rooms by this time)

-Less time between ceremony and reception

-None of your guests need to miss the morning/afternoon by the beach/pool

 

What is your group rate?  I got mine and it was $1521 (Leaving Sun May 5th - Sun May 11th).

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
