  1. Im surprised to hear your experience. We had our wedding at Grand Coral (you can read my review of Fresa). We tried to do everything ourselves online and then decided to get a planner...right off the start Kristee saved us thousands of dollars on the food and drink by negotiating with Grand Coral. We were so pleased with the efforts and attention to detail that we felt she was worth double her fee for what she did for us and told her as much. It seems that you wanted to do everything yourself...why did you hire a planner at all in the first place. It looks like she quit because you and your fiancé were so well organized and good at negotiating that you did not need her services after all.

    A Godsend!

    This is a review of:

    Fresa Weddings Mexico

    A Godsend!

    Pros: Enthusiastic, professional and work in the bride's best interest!
    Cons: None
    I can't say enough good things about Kristen and Erin and their team at Fresa Weddings Mexico!  They were the third wedding co-ordinators that we tried and they are miles ahead of the competition!  They really are on top of their game!  They make you feel like your day is special and they too care about every little detail and show it with enthusiasm.  They are professional and made us feel like they were in our corner 'arm-wrestling' the best deals for us mindful of our budget at all times.  They totally 'get' our vision. We wanted a private, glamourous non cookie-cutter wedding off the resort.  We were not kept in suspense waiting on emails but were given prompt replies or emailed simply to "touch base" and were offered skype and phone meetings frequently.  Our wedding is coming up soon and NOT ONCE did we feel like they were not 'on it'. We have been constantly reassured that "don't worry, everything is under control and it'll come together beautifully"! My fiance and I live in Canada and I can't imagine what I would've done without this amazing team!  I am a hands-on, A type personality but I have full confidence in the co-ordinating and trouble-shooting (if need be) skills of their team.  If you are planning to get married in Mexico look no further.  As far as I'm concerned they are the best and go above and beyond to make your day happen according to your vision.  I am a stress-free bride and I am looking forward to enjoying every minute of my wedding day because Fresa Weddings Mexico are "on it"!   Update: Hi everyone! Just got married last week on May 24th!  The only word I can think of is "Magical"!  Fresa Weddings was "on it" from beginning til end.  Kristee and her team took care of all the little details and kept us running on schedule.  Me and my groom were stress free!  We were relaxed and enjoyed our wedding with our guests and didn't worry about anything.  Everything went off without a hitch; the fireshow on the beach, the mariachi band, the surprise flash mob choir at the ceremony, even the lanterns as a grand finale were beatiful!  I had fun at my own wedding because I handed over the reins to a very competent team with Fresa Weddings! I had total faith in them and I would highly recommend them to anyone considering getting married in the Mayan riviera! They know what will 'work' and what won't and whether mother nature will be for or against us but IF IT'S IN THEIR POWER, "No" is not a word in their vocabulary!  These guys are THE wedding planners in Mexico!! They will make your day magic!
