We are interested in having a Private Receptions and are expecting approximately 60 people to join in on our Celebration.
I've read on here that it is approximately $50 dollars per guest - does anyone have any insight on this?
Also are most peoples plans to get officially married before then a ceremony in Punta?? We prefer to get married officially in Punta and deal with the extra costs of transferring documents when were home but really have no idea!
Any opions or insign is appreciated!
Yes, all of us have heard nothing but fabulous things about the Majestic.
You are correct with your estimation. There are other fees though. They charge for everything ... destination weddings are not as cheap as they once were.
There is a fee to book your venue on top of the price per person. If you want alcoholic drinks there are bar packages (paid per person). Any decor you want to have during your reception also comes at a price. The dinner is usually 2.5-3 hours. If you want longer you have to pay extra. If you want your reception to go to 11 and include dancing then there are fees for things like stereo rental, microphone, lights, or DJ as well.
