I haven't really thought this far!  haha

 

What about you???  Any ideas?

 

Did you book the DJ through the resort?

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!

[Maria Alejandra Says:] Our actual Djs are not MC, they can stay at the reception, playing music but they are not able to entertain or talk as much English with the group. The Djs here can have the style you would like to have, we can talk to them to play only the type of music you like. During the reception, of course you will have time for speeches. We can incorporate an MC that can announce some kind of things like your entrance and the bridal party, the first dance, the dances of the couple with their parents, the bouquet toss and the garter toss, and things like that (simply things), unfortunately they are not able to do games of things require to talk English very much.

 

 

Puntabride did you book your DJ outside the resort because that's the answer I got ? Not sure who she is referring to that can be incorporated as an MC?

 

DJ mannia is booked outside the resort.  He is very well known in Punta Cana and does a ton of weddings at the Majestic Resorts.  He came highly recommended by other brides on here and on the majestic facebook group.  Their company also exists in mexico I believe.

No, DJ mannia is a company off the resort.  Very reputable.

All true!

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 ‘Majesicâ€Â â€“ The resortâ€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 donâ€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 wonâ€t give you more drinks than can fit in the fridge, so empty it as much as you want it refilled. *donâ€t brush your teeth with the tap water, and keep your mouth closed in the shower – donâ€t be a hero. *Snack Bar Food (burgers, fries, nachos, wings, calamari, pizza, etc.) are served at La Bodeguita Del Majestic on the ‘Caribbean Streetâ€Â 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. *Cocoâ€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 ‘Gourmetâ€Â (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. [/quote All true! Have fun:)

Hi! Thank you:) I brought my own photographer from Ottawa, but those are my family pictures! I did not upgrade anything from the resort as we were going to the kukua for the reception, so that is all basic and it was beautiful....kukua is only 10 mins away from majestic. PM me if you'd like more info on here or Facebook!

    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
