So after searching for destinations ALL OVER the Caribbean we decided on Playa del Carmen after we saw pictures of Kool Beach Club and some TTD in a cenote. However, now that we're putting all the costs together and everything it's becoming overwhelming and scary, since we're not planning on traveling down before the wedding. Has anybody had their reception at Kool Beach Club and used Maria Tripaldi (from weddingsinplaya.com) as their wedding planner?? If so could you tell me your opinions with her and how it turned out. Also anybody have pictures of their wedding done by Maria?? After talking to a couple of planners we think we narrowed it down to her but would like some reassurance.
Also, if you had your wedding/reception in Kool... did you use the place the whole time? Did you have an open bar the whole night? We found the drinks to be the most costly and we would like to see if there's any way to cut the price down without having to shorten the party just because of the cost of the drinks.
GREATLY appreciate all you help!! Thanks!!
