Congrats to all the brides-to-be! I'm currently in the process of still choosing a resort to get married at and Majestic Elegance is one of them. I saw that someone posted that the buffet is the only option for a private dinner? There isn't any way to get a plated option? Also does anyone have a price listing for reserving the different reception areas (restaurants, ballrooms, parrot bar)? Thanks for your help and good luck planning!

    duchovny, as far as I know, that's the only option for a private dinner. we're doing the semi private which is plated then the private reception after.

      Thanks Mrs Smith for the info! I got the info from Majestic and I see the buffet option. So since noire doing semi private does that mean noire going with the option to have a reserved space in a restaurant for your group? Which restaurant did u choose?

        Yes, we chose the See & Sea (or Sea & See, I can never remember...lol)  then the Parrot Bar after for the reception.  I keep going back and forth b/c the buffet seems like it would satisfy more people as far as taste & options, but i'm not a fan of eating outside.  Also, at $70/pp + alcohol vs. the fee for renting the parrot bar is something we're trying to figure out.  We have 22 people booked so far, so I'm thinking we'll do a price comparison & see what the better option is

            Does anyone know if there's lighting for a beach reception? Or do we have to purchase it?

              I'll chime in here...  We are getting married at Majestic Elegance on April 1, 2014. I let him pick the date...  life is certainly going to be interesting...  April Fools!  

               

              We are having our ceremony at the gazebo at 4pm.  Private dinner at the Wet Bar at 7.  Luckily managed to make it down there last March to check it out.  I preferred the Parrot Bar as it was a bit more secluded, but had to pick the Wet Bar since our guest list is wobbling between 30 and 55...  Better safe than sorry since Parrot Bar can only accommodate 50.  

               

              Invites went out in May.  We did an airplane ticket.  Replies were sent in through our wedding wire website.  I hated the idea of no communication between RSVP and wedding so I made some passports with information about the resort.  As people replied, I sent them out.  Everyone loves them.  I put in all the bar and restaurant locations/hours, kids area info, simple spanish phrases, etc.  They turned out great!  Oh and a page for them to write down room numbers when we get there since those are also likely the phone numbers between rooms.  Easy for arranging things.  

               

              Colors are a bit of a mish mash.  I love all colors so we're having a table of each color.  Picked the decoration package with the Tiffany chairs so they'll provide me with a runner of my color choice and flowers for the tables.  We're pretty laid back so decorations aren't my biggest concern.  Doing OOT bags as my favors.  Bringing my own bouquet (Plumeria Bouquets by Sandy - which are amazing).  My sister in law had destination wedding with teal as her color...  their idea of making her "free" bouquet teal, was to spray paint it...  which got ALL OVER HER DRESS!  ugh.  I'm not taking that risk.  

               

              Having photo souvenir as our photographers.  Super excited about that.  They have been an amazing help in organizing everything.  Doing the wild trash the dress with them as well the following day.  What else...  got my dress, just have to get alterations done.  :)  I feel like I'm pretty prepared.

                Hi Everyone,

                 

                I was just wondering what the total was per couple to come to this resort. I do not want my guest to have to spend a lot of money, but I love this resort! Did you get many group discounts etc?

                  Hi everyone,

                   

                  I was just wondering what it cost each of your guests to stay here for 7 days. What was the couples rate? I love this resort but do not want it to be too much for guests..
