    Many thanks MissBubbles!  It is all becoming very REAL and truly exciting quite quickly! I have another question I am hoping some of you may be able to provide some insight on.  Does anyone know if the Spa does makeup?  Or are many of you "bringing a make-up savvy friend/family member" or doing it yourselves? Thanks so much again, it truly helps A LOT!!!!!

    Welcome! The salon does hair and makeup (can do trial run also), just need to schedule with ur WC or salon directly. If u contact the Majestic they can email you a full list and prices. I have not heard the best things about the makeup (that it smudges, is cheap, too caked on etc.) As for hair, heard both good and just ok reviews. Another option is Krystie Ann, who will be down there this winter from Canad Good luck!

      I too have seen mixed reviews on hair but not many wonderful things about the make-up. I personally am trying out new makeups to see what is the best for my wedding. And maybe try tips and tricks on my own to have the best look. I also want to be able to do my own makeup so that I can make touch ups as needed throughout the big day if needed. One thing I have read about hair.... takes lots of detailed pics and they can re-create it.

       

      Also, I strongly suggest the Majestic Elegance Brides and Majestic Colonial Brides facebook groups. Tons of info, pictures, etc. :o)

          ME Brides.... HELP!!!... lol.. I haven't been able to make or comment on posts or even respond to my PMs. :'o( I have tried 3 computers and an iPad. Still no luck. Until today I found a way around it by clicking on full page editor.. then previewing... then submitting.. what a mess!.. but anywho. My fiance and I have decided that we def want to have a reception at ME. Here is my new timeline since I cannot push up the ceremony time. Fingers crossed it all works out. Ceremony - 6:00 Dinner - 7:30 (will request guests to arrive at 7:15) Reception - 9:00 until 11:00 Now the biggest concern...... Parrot Bar or Wet Bar?? Which is the best to choose. We are thinking about 30 guests, could be more, could be less. But I def want to choose the nicest of the two.. :o) Also would LOVE to see pics if anyone has any. :o)

            Hay Brit!

             

            From what I've read, there doesn't seem to be a big difference between reception spots (wetbar or parrot).  Did you check out the pics on Picasa?  I feel like I've also read somewhere that the resort will extend the reception by one hour; you may get to have it until midnight as long as they have the availability for that spot; maybe weigh that into your decision of where to have it.  The pricing is for a 3 hour reception, so I would imagine that they would be willing to work with you on that.

             

            I agree that this website might need a little maintenance.  I've had problems with seeing my posts, repeat posts, not being able to post pics on some days.  Ya never know what your gonna get, but its still been an unbelievable resource in getting this wedding planned!!!

             

            Good Luck!

             

            <3, Chrystine

                We are booked to be married June 12, 2013 at the Colonial!! We are so excited, unfortunately we have never been to this resort, however based on reviews and that it is children friendly we felt it was the best place.

                I must say I am a bit concerned about the paperwork needed... does anyone know where to get the document stating you are single and do you have to get the translation apostilled as well?

It was suggested to me and I thought a good idea since I don't want the party to get started too late??? Any suggestions or I'd love to hear if anyone has heard of anyone doing this and pulling it off....so confused and must make up my mind soon!!!

                  Thanks in advance


                  Hello!! We are getting married too on June 12th at 3pm at the Colonial... is this where you are getting married?
