    Hi ladies

     

    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 too am using Anna Nuet! Her work looks awesome!

I am excited to hear the feedback from the ladies who have been recently and see pictures! I'm concerned about all the extra costs for all the little things... Is anyone bringing their own decorations? Some of their fees are ridiculous when it comes to using their centrepieces and other decorations but I love the resort so much, I think we will try to bring as much as we can and also not decorate a whole lot on top of what is included.

      ALSO: I read somewhere that the free wedding package is not available when your 15 rooms are booked at group rate? has anyone else heard of this? I read it on another thread somewhere but the question was never answered...

      I had read this once too when I had started all my planning last year so I emailed the resort about it and found out that that was not true. I have never read this happening to anyone else except that one post that I think was from 2007. Not to worry it's false anyway :) BUT if you want to be reassured I suggest you email your wedding co-ordinator and get an answer in writing so that you can have it with you when you go.

       

      Happy Planning

            It has been one month since our wedding at Majestic Colonial.

            All we have to say is that it was WONDERFUL!! Everything was BEAUTIFUL! I have pictures if you want me to send you. Dayra is the BEST wedding coordinator so detail oriented and NAILED it!! Everything was perfect! 

            During our initial meeting in the lobby there was apparently an unhappy couple that decided to interrupt our meeting to inform us they (Majestic) cannot pay CD's for the ceremony and it took them hours to finally get their music to play. Well, that is because they did not purchase the correct sound system package. So be careful, you get what you pay for.... cheap is not always the best, when planning keep in mind that yes its more reasonably priced there but how much would you pay at home?? Even the most expensive at Majestic is still WAYYY cheaper then doing it at home.

            We had 18 guest and still had a private dinner and reception with a DJ at the Wet Bar. It was awesome!!! You could pick any music you wanted, he had a lap top so if it wasn't in his collection he downloaded on the spot to play it for you. Needless to say we had zero issues with music.

            The service was wonderful they pay 110% attention to you and your guests and make sure you are completely satisfied. The food was very good a large variety. I didn't eat too much I just wanted to party!!! Everyone complimented the food, so there is another plus.

            We used the resort photo and video personnel they are extremely professional and the pictures and video are beautiful! The video was unbelievable, they are truly talented and it shows. We have received so many compliments on the video and pictures. I can send you a pic or two if you would like so you can see the quality.

            We hired Pastor York- Another great choice, he was fantastic!

            The cake... OH MY GOODNESS delicious! We had vanilla with strawberry filling, ohhh the cake was so moist and was so good not overly sweet, just right. We were so upset we didn't take any back to our room!

            Now as you can see our day was perfect, everything went perfectly and I would not change a thing the journey was amazing. However... there are ALWAYS bumps in the road and how you handle them all depends on your personality.  I had my hair done at the salon, did I like it yes, did I love it no, did I care when I was walking down the isle NO. Its hot there so don't expect to look like you just stepped out of a salon its hot! The walking to the beach from the wedding gazebo..far! Did I hate the walking YES, did it ruin my day NO. Actually it was nice to walk all around and get a ton of compliments :)

            There is a few hour difference between the wedding ceremony and your reception, I thought on my god what is everyone going to do... ya know what why the heck did I worry myself over that! We are in a beautiful resort with multiple bars DON'T worry about that... they will make do. All that worrying I did was a waste of my energy.

            I cannot say enough positive things about this resort, the personnel and our experience.

            My husband and I are so pleased and all of our guest had a great time and great experience. They all said they would go back to Majestic. OH can't forget about our 5 year old daughter, she had a blast! We never used the children facility area, we stayed in the big pool all week and she had a great time.

            If anyone has any questions please feel free to contact me at kayb0123@comcast.net

            Happy planning!

              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!

              Thanks for the info! Sorry for the late response. I've been going nuts trying to get the wedding together lol. Can you tell me which photographer you used? Thanks! :)
