Wedding in Playa del Carmen (Kool Beach? WP: Maria Tripaldi? HELP!)

Recommended Posts

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!!   ;)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
