I just got married two weeks ago.  We had 40 people and had the semi-private dinner at the See and Sea (AMAZING).  We were suppose to have private reception on the beach afterwards, but they were calling for rain so we had to make alternate arrangements (didn't end up raining).  We ended up staying at the See and Sea all night and got to use our DJ for the whole thing - super awesome.  It ended up working out way better than what I had planned.  

 

If had to do things on a smaller scale I would just do the dinner then go watch the show at the theatre (or sometimes the show is outside in the plaza ... you can gather a great big table and move your party there).  Then at 11 go to the disco for your dancing.  I saw some brides do this while we were there.

Hi ladies

 

Would any MC/ME give us future brides some pointers on what to do, what not to do, what worked for you and what didnt. Also, who did your makeup and hair? 

 

Thank you

My wedding isn't until January 2015, but it's hard to find up to date threads on the Majestic Colonial. My fiance and I have already fallen in love with this resort and have decided on it for our wedding :D I know that I am planning so far in advance, but I love things to be organized lol. I am excited to hear the feedback from the ladies who have been recently and see pictures! I'm concerned about all the extra costs for all the little things... Is anyone bringing their own decorations? Some of their fees are ridiculous when it comes to using their centrepieces and other decorations but I love the resort so much, I think we will try to bring as much as we can and also not decorate a whole lot on top of what is included.

ALSO: I read somewhere that the free wedding package is not available when your 15 rooms are booked at group rate? has anyone else heard of this? I read it on another thread somewhere but the question was never answered...

Tonia hope this helps...this is what I asked my WC. Can you tell me how it works for the free wedding, is it me who sends you the amount of rooms we have booked with our wedding group or this will be done through the travel agent? On the wedding package it says 15 rooms or 105 nights can yout tell me if someone books for 2 weeks does that go towards the 105 nights?[Maria Alejandra Says:] you have to have 15 rooms per 7 nights or 105 night (no matter how many nights you have in each room), yes, if thereâ€s rooms that will be more that 7 nights that will count for the free wedding package.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
