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.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
