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!

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
