@mj12102016 I'm sure it will be great! The Zuniga stuff we rented was perfect. No issues with that vendor whatsoever! We only ordered a few things though (votive LED candles, under the table white lights, and 4 column with 2 sets of string lanterns).

I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

@acw271011 - Thank you! I will definitely be posting a wedding review in the near future. The wedding was a total dream...I want to do it again and again! I miss Cancun...
@jj575757 - We chose the Italian buffet for the reception dinner. It was pretty decent. My (SUPER PICKY) husband liked the lasagna, and our guests liked the chicken and fish. The desserts were underwhelming. For the wedding day, we had the BBQ buffet. The BBQ chicken was GREAT, the shrimp kebabs were pretty good, the pork ribs were okay, and the fruit salad was lovely. I definitely liked the BBQ buffet better than the Italian. I wouldn't recommend doing a Mexican buffet. Your guests will be having enough Mexican-themed food during their stay. One thing I wish I'd considered looking into is having the rehearsal off-resort. There is a "mall" called the Flamingo mall about a 3-5 walk away. There is an Outback Steakhouse, a Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville, and a Bubba-Gump Shrimp. I wondered if they had private rooms there - it might have been nice to go off resort for dinner one night.
Our cake was a round chocolate cake with vanilla chantilly frosting - and it was seriously the best wedding cake I've ever had. I normally don't even like cake that much. When you get married there please cut off a few pieces and refrigerated-mail them to me .

His mom also is the one on me about making decisions. She asks me things every weekend. Lot of things I haven't considered yet because they're not that important to me or because it's to early to decide.
Best of luck!

- @stephygurl Thanks so much for the feedback! I actually think we are going to choose the French menu.I am not sure if I missed it, but where did you have your rehearsal dinner? What location? I am thinking about having one but I am not sure the cost. Is it the same ( $55/PP) as the reception dinner? Thanks!!

@jj575757 - French menu sounds good! We had our rehearsal dinner on the Infinity Terrace. Not my favorite spot. It's RIGHT by the pool and the showers where people wash off sand after coming up from the beach. There is basically a big row of chaise lounges and umbrellas there during the day that they clear out for the event at night. If you HAVE to do your rehearsal dinner there, try to do it NO EARLIER than 7pm...because people were typically still in the pool until it got dark out. We made the resort take down the pool volleyball net and basketball net so that people wouldn't be hitting us with balls during the dinner! The spot I'd recommend is probably the Sky Bar South - it's more private. We weren't able to get that spot because there was another event going on that night...and we didn't want the Palenque Terrace since we wanted that to be special for our wedding reception.
Overall the rehearsal dinner on the Infinity Terrace worked out great - it just could have been a bit more private. No real complaints though - it still ended up being a lovely event with a beautiful view! It could be cool to do an event on the beach, too, but I think they charge more per person to bring the food out there.
Our cost was $55/person!

thank you @stephygirl. Did you have a vendor setup tables or did beach palace do that for you?? If so, can you please send me some pictures! I am so torn. I really want to have a dinner to thank our guest but If I go with latinasia for setup its going to cost around another $1k.

@jj575757 - For the rehearsal dinner, BP set up the tables with white tablecloths. If I recall correctly our WC (Zaray) gave us the option of different table napkin colors, but we just went with the standard white. I'm sorry to say we don't have any pictures of the tables from the rehearsal dinner.
For our wedding reception, we ordered the "Metallic Sands" decoration package. BP set everything up on our behalf and we did NOTHING other than drop off our favors (we had multiple favors) and guest book with the WC. We also emailed our WC telling her how and where we wanted everything set up. She did it all perfectly. See some pictures below! I have a lot more pictures but am having a hard time figuring out which ones to post!
This is also the first time I've ever posted pictures so I hope it works - but here was our reception!
