February 16, 2019
Welcome, Family and Friends! We are so excited to spend an extended weekend with you in gorgeous Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Your presence means the world to us as we have the time of our lives and pledge our love to each other in paradise.
We will be staying at the Majestic Colonial from February 13-21 and would love to be able to spend this time with our loved ones.
Sharon, of Barefoot Bridal, a destination wedding travel agency, has been amazing with helping us with all the booking details. Sharon has worked with the hotel to secure a group rate with the Majestic Colonial and to help all of our guests book their travel accommodations for our wedding on February 16, 2019.
Should you have any questions related to traveling, please contact Sharon and Barefoot Bridal. There is a chat button on the bottom right hand corner of this site, you can email email@example.com, or call 866-8-BAREFOOT.
Majestic Colonial Punta Cana is an all inclusive resort on Bavaro Beach, in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. It is approximately 30 minutes from the Punta Cana airport. Majestic Colonial is specially designed for couples, families and groups who want to relax, enjoy a privileged location, play sports (with available Aquatic Centre), relax in the Spa, enjoy the excellent gastronomy, enjoy spectacular Caribbean rhythm shows, play golf at one of several courses within the area, and go shopping.
In addition, the hotel has offers the exquisite Colonial Club, an exclusive and separate adults only area (over 18 years) for those couples or friends looking for a more intimate and exclusive service. These amenities include:
Majestic Colonial features 658 spacious rooms furnished with quality materials and equipped with all the facilities you would expect from a five star resort: king size bed or two double beds (subject to availability), European marble floors, ecological automatic light system, mini-bar restocked daily, full bath with oval tub, separate shower with 3 functions (rain, massage, soft), hairdryer, air conditioning, ceiling fan, satellite TV, sofa, telephone, Internet connection, bathrobe and slippers, independent door for room service, safe, coffee maker, desk, iron and balcony or terrace with chairs.
The Special Wedding Group Rates have been secured and rooms have been blocked off with a room block, waiting for you to book your stay! There is a 3-night minimum stay for the rates. The rates are below. In addition to these rates, we have secured discounted round trip direct transfers from PUJ private to this group for only $35 per person.
PLEASE NOTE: Not every room category has been added to the room block. If you choose a room that is not part of the room block (either because it was never part of it or because all the other rooms in the block have been booked), I will have to ask the hotel to confirm both the availability of the room and if they will honor the rates. I will let you know once that has been confirmed or ask you to choose another category if it is not available. This resort sells out fast; to guarantee the room category of your choice, book asap!

To be considered part of Jennifer & Michael's Wedding Group, you must book through the group rates and not through any other method (even directly with the hotel). We have negotiated competitive group rates and secured a room block to make this as easy as possible. To participate in all of the wedding-related activities, you must stay at the Majestic Colonial as part of the wedding group.
You do not need to know all the parties in the room, the travel dates, or the room category; book your room based on what you think you will need and any changes can be made until the balance due date.
Any changes made to your booking after December 9, 2018, will be subject to a $75 change fee. Any changes requested after the balance due date must be paid for in full upfront even before they are confirmed. All late payments will be assessed a $25 penalty per every 5 business days the payment is late.
Yes! You can structure your payments in one of 3 ways:
Any deposit or payments made towards bookings as part of wedding groups are fully refundable if requested in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 7 days in advance of December 9, 2018. If a cancellation request is not made in time, all moneys paid towards travel will be nonrefundable.
Travel Insurance is available and highly recommended. Rates are per person, depending on the length of the land-only portion of your trip. For adults: staying up to 4 nights, travel insurance is $69; staying 5 or more nights is $99. Children 2-17 are half price; infants are covered under their parent's policy when all adults in the reservation buy the coverage.
All-in-One Travel Protection Benefits include a cancel for any reason benefit; trip interruption/delay reimbursement, baggage protection, medical coverage, 24-hour worldwide emergency travel assistance provided by On Call International, and more.
Yes! A passport book is needed to fly to and from the U.S. and the D.R. - please take the time now to locate your passport and check the expiration date; make sure it is valid for 6 months after your anticipated return date. Check this site for more passport info: https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/passports.html
We have secured a discounted rate for round trip direct airport transfers from PUJ at $35 per person in addition to the hotel rates. These transfers are private for this group alone, so you will only be traveling with other people in this group arriving at the same time.
There is a $10 tourist visa fee that must be paid in cash when you arrive at the Punta Cana airport. You can purchase it online here to avoid the lines: https://www.dgii.gov.do/Tturistaweb/home
The weather in the D.R. is hot and humid with averages in the 80s year around. Humidity is lowest during Dec-Feb and increases the closer you get to August. Hurricane season starts in June and continues through November. There is a gentle breeze that comes off the ocean on most days, so make sure to pack plenty of sunscreen because the breeze makes it easy to forget just how hot and strong the sun really is!
You do not need an adapter for your electronics; the outlets in the D.R. will accept U.S. plugs.
I can assist you with booking excursions. Let us know me what kind of activities you'd like to do, how many people, and the date you'd like to go and we can get you rates.
Barefoot Bridal can assist with airfare. Please contact your TA with your travel dates, depature gateway, number of people traveling, and special requests at email@example.com with the wedding name. However BFB cannot guarantee that we have better rates than what you may find on your own.
Finding cheaper rates than the group rates online is very rare! However, if you have found cheaper rates, please take a screen shot that includes the final total price (with all taxes and fees), what the price includes (dates and room category), the website you found it on and the date and time on your computer and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will ask the hotel for a price match. It may take several business days to hear back from the groups department for the match. We have been successful in the past in reducing entire group contracts, but hotels can also reject price matches due to having a group contract in place.
