      Thank you!!!

      Can I ask you if Luis prepared your tasting? or was it just his staff? We are getting the tables from Banquetes Margarita which are the suppliers of Grand Coral!. My wedding is in a month, so if you need info about how it went or recommendations please let me know!!! If I can be of any help I will!!!

        Luis did and I think his staff, they were all so helpful!! Let me know if you want to know the food we tried. I would love any info and especially feedback that you have after your wedding. A month!!! You must be so excited!!!! Can I ask how much the tables and chairs were? Also what are you doing for your set up? Are you using the same chairs for the ceremony? So happy to talk to another Beach Club bride! Best of Luck!

          Yzzel,

           

          Just had my wedding there on Friday, November 2nd. We flew in on Monday and did the tasting Wednesday. I was so incredibly nervous about the food, especially since I did the tasting 2 days before the wedding! I had given my planner some suggestions and she gave them to Luis. Luis blew us away during the tasting!!!! He went above and beyond our expectations. Im very picky about food and I was pleased with EVERYTHING he made for us. Our guests were equally pleased with their meals during the wedding. Luis is great at what he does! He is creative and open to suggestions! I know exactly how you feel about being nervous with the wedding being so close, but you're in good hands with Luis and his incredible staff!!
           

          About where guests stayed- Our guests stayed in various places in Playa and we arranged for vans to pick them up at their hotels.

           

          If you ladies have any questions, feel free to PM!

            Dear Melig,

             

            Thank you for your answer! Im so happy you hear that! Last time I spoke with Luis he told me that he's open to any suggestion I made for the menu but still I wasn't sure if it was good food!. My FI and I are very picky on food and obviously would like to have a delicious dinner! Can I ask you another thing? Did you went with the DJ Diego Alvarado? He is the option of Grand Coral but I haven't heard much from him!

             

            Dear Sophia,

            I haven't received the final quote on the tables but they will send it to me within the next few days. As soon as I get them I'll post it for you!. I'm using the same tiffany chairs for the ceremony in the reception. And I'm thinking of having small round tables of 8pax. I'm getting really excited but also a little bit nervous as I dont really know some of the vendors!.

             

            I'll keep you posted!

            Thanx,

            Yzzel

                Yzzel, I used the DJ my planner recommended, Orlando Paz (Orly Mixer). I was happy with him. He gave me 3 sheets to fill out to get an idea of what kind of music my husband and I wanted. He was very detailed. He did a good job of feeling out the crowd and took suggestions. Danay, I did use their deck as my dance floor and it worked out wonderfully! I'm not sure how many guests you're having, but for us the size if the area was great. We had a small wedding (33 people) so we had some free space. Are you ladies using a planner/coordinator? Are you using Grand Coral as both a ceremony and reception site? Who have you ladies picked for your photographer? Anything else I can help with, please let me know!! Melissa

                  Melig015- I hope you had a wonderful wedding last weekend!  

                   

                  I am about to sign a contract for a venue on Isla Mujeres, and stumbled across Grand Coral.  Oh my gosh- gorgeous.  Can someone please share wedding costs, etc with me?  trudy_9@hotmail.com.   I would appreciate it.  

                   

                  Thank you

                    Thanks for your input on hotels ladies. We're looking into getting a group rate from Mahekal hotel right now, it looks lovely.

                     

                    Melig-I am using Kristee@ Fresa Weddings as my planner. My wedding isn't until August of next year but so far she's been great. We're having both the ceremony and reception at Grand Coral. 

                     

                    I would love to hear everyones suggestions on photographers as well. I wanted to use del sol but they're a bit too pricey for us. At the moment I'm leaning towards Ivan Luckie but haven't officialy booked him yet. I also won't be able to do a tasting until the week of our wedding so any recommendations you ladies have on the food let me know. Thanks!!

                      Yes we are having  our ceremony and reception there. We are arranging a pick up at our hotel. My wedding planner is Maria Tripladi from weddingsinplaya.com. She has been awesome!

                       

                      I met Ivan when we did our site inspection he was great!!!
