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.

awesome, thank you! I find there are so many little questions I have.. this forum is so much better than emailing the WC every day lol.

 

would anyone possibly have a sample menu to choose our set menu from if we decide to have a non-private dinner at one of the a-la-cartes? My fiance and his dad are SUPER picky and we want to make sure there will be enough choice that everyone will be able to have something they like.

Just know that Majestic Elegance was incredible.  We loved every part of our week.  I will post all of the details and answer all of your questions soon.

Hi PuntaBride! Last year I stayed at the Riu palace and went to visit the Majestic Elegance & Colonial while in punta cana. My fiance was more impressed by the Majestic and is insisting on staying there for our wedding, however I've read many reviews on other sites about the food being terrible. Can you help share your experience? Have you stayed at other hotels that you may be able to compare it to? 

Thank you so much!

Hi There!

 

The food at the Majestic Elegance is far from terrible.  I LOVED the food.  I've stayed at several of the RIUs (DR, Jamaica, Aruba and Mexico) and the Majestic Elegance is just as good.  One thing I liked better was that there were more specialty restaurants than the RIU and you didn't need a reservation for all of them, which was a bonus.  I hated having to get up at 7:30 am at the RIU to book.  Also, if you find one you really like you can go back again ... no limit.  The only thing that is better at RIU is the buffet, but you will not eat at the buffet (only breakfast and lunch) at the ME only specialty restaurants because they are so good!

 

Another bonus is that you will have no problem finding a spot to sit at the beach or pool.  There was no reserving of chairs at the ME.  I was stunned.  You could sleep till 9 or 10 and still find a spot around the pool.  That was fabulous!  The pool is so neat too.  Don't get me wrong - I LOVE RIU.  Hence why I've been to so many.  But the ME was great!  I would go back in an instant.  My guests loved it here.

 

Let me know if you want any more details :)

Oh and I would pay the extra to go to the Elegance rather than the Colonial.  There is a big difference for not a lot extra.  So go for it!

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

 

I will be using Anna Nuet when I get married in November. Her work is very good! 

 

Here is her website: http://annanuet.wix.com/annanuethair

 

She also has a facebook.

I would not worry too much. We are getting married in a month and in January we only had 20 people.... right up until last week we had two more guests. We are now at 69!!! I can't tell you how unprepared we were to cater to so many people. Give it a little more time. Make arrangements for a small gathering but make sure you have some wiggle room in case you have a bunch of last minute people like we did.

    • 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
