I just returned from my fairytale wedding at the Majestic Colonial...it was perfect!!!  We used the spa's services for hair and they can truly do it all - brides, don't even worry about this.  They have millions of modern pics. 

 

Ceremony and wedding planners there are soooo great!!!  No need to worry about anything-they do it so often that it is stress-free and things went off without a hitch!

 

We did our reception at Kukua Beach Club - AMAZING!!  So beautiful, delicious, amazing service.

 

Florian from Video Punta Cana is a dream to work with and his work is breathtaking...had me in tears just looking at the video cover.

 

I will post full reviews on everything but for those on a time constraint, don't hesitate to PM me!

      congrats punta bride!

      hey ladies, i got this resort info from another brides. i have no idea if this information is updated or not. can anybody confirm? 

       

       

       

       

      *MammaJuana  - The drink they are known for in Punta Cana. There is something different in it every time, but a shot on its own or in a coke makes for a very fun night, or afternoon, or morning… whatever kind of crazy you feel like getting.

      *The â€˜Majesic’ â€“ The resort’s signature drink. It is creamsicle flavor, and tastes more like a dreamsicle

      *Beer = Presidente

      *If you leave a couple of bucks with a list of what you want re-stocked in your room everyday, it goes a long way (i.e., 6 water, 6 beer).

      *If you don’t drink the beers/water from your fridge before the next re-stocking, hide them in your bedside table so you have an abundance of beer/water when you really want it! ;) They won’t give you more drinks than can fit in the fridge, so empty it as much as you want it refilled.

      *don’t brush your teeth with the tap water, and keep your mouth closed in the shower â€“ don’t be a hero.

      *Snack Bar Food (burgers, fries, nachos, wings, calamari, pizza, etc.) are served at La Bodeguita Del Majestic on the â€˜Caribbean Street’ boardwalk.

      *It is open from 11pm -6am. Delightful after a long evening of indulgent cocktails.

      *There is NO food available from 6-6:30pm and 6-7am. Please see snacks in goodie bag if in a panic.

      *There is a Sports Bar with TVs to watch any events, it also has pool tables.

      *There is a small Casino with slots machines and 3 or 4 tables to play at.

      *Coco’s Niteclub (aka The Disco) is open from 11pm-6am.

      *There is an outdoor pool table/ping pong/giant chess area.

      *The Garden/Plaza Bar has different entertainment each night ranging from karaoke to a decades themed night to live music to dancing.

      *There are shows every night in the theatre.

      *There are basketball courts, tennis courts, and a baseball diamond that you can arrange tournaments at.

      *Daily entertainment at the Wet Bar and on the beach including salsa lessons, Spanish lessons, arm wrestling, beer races, yoga, etc. (see the full guide in the book)

      *Non-motorized water sports (kayaking, windsurfing, snorkeling, etc.) are all included.

      *Reservations are only needed at the â€˜Gourmet’ (French restaurant) and Teppanyaki table only (the Japanese restaurant alone does not need a reservation).

      *Dress Code for the restaurants is long pants and closed toed shoes for guys. HOWEVER, this was not really enforced when we stayed here and many people wore nice shorts and sandals. The French restaurant is the most strict with the dress code.

      *There are 9 bars on the resort.

        I'm using Pastor York for my ceremony. His fee is $350. Does anyone know if we have to pay an entrance fee for him? I booked directly through him, not through Majestic. I suppose I will just let my WC know??

        Not sure how it works for pastor York but Inl had read some crazy vendor fees to have photographers on the property. What are people doing during the reception who is going to be your MC? I found out the DJ doesn't talk at all. My WC said she could announce first dance etc but that's it?

          The day pass for him is $90. Just let your WC know that you will be using him. :)

            Hi Brides!

             

            I'm wanting to do signature drinks at some point during the wedding day (preference being the reception) ... Something Old, Something New, Something Blue, and Something Borrowed.  I've made a sign that I want to display with the four drinks.  If anyone has any advice on this.  

             

            I'm trying to decide what drink package to choose for the private reception.  I'm just beside myself on the cost of adding this.  I can't believe they charge extra when we already at an all inclusive.  If I choose the National Bar will they mix cocktails that don't require any liqueur ... just the basics?  If I can't work it into the reception do you think I would be able to do it at our cocktail hour if I just put the sign on the bar and guests order the drinks themselves?  Decisions ... decisions ....

            PuntaBride what are you doing for your reception do you have a DJ ? Who is going to be the MC? Do you have games planned? First dance, cake cutting, speaches etc?

             

            If you can share how your planning to do yours would be great!

            @Clau81 I think the spa is about 20 minutes from the resort.
