Grand Solmar Wedding Construction Help!

Recommended Posts

I'm reaching out in desperate help for our upcoming wedding at Grand Solmar Land's End this April. Are there any other recent Grand Solmar Brides or upcoming brides out there?


The wedding coordinator just send us photos of the gazebo/VIP/wedding area and it's completely under construction! We were originally told the pool had minor filtration issues, but were promised the damage was minimal (in November) and that the area would be perfectly fine by April. Fast forward to this week, we were shocked to see all of the cranes, huge construction walls (this would be the "isle" I walk down), and new, unplanned buildings that are now being built in the wedding area. The wedding coordinator is now telling us the area won't be complete until late July, yet they want to move forward with our wedding in April....area as is


I feel very mislead of not only the damage, but the timelines promised to us months ago so we wouldn't change our venue, and the lack of communication about entirely new construction occurring outside of what was damaged in the hurricane to the wedding area.


I just wanted to see if anyone else is dealing with this or if anyone has any suggestions. It's been incredible stressful for us and we are out of ideas of what to do. Thanks in advance!!

Have you contacted your travel agent to help you out with this? That would be your best first point of contact. If there any possibility of changing your venue? I would definitely say it's misrepresentation, but things work so differently in Mexico. Do you have the communication assuring you that everything would be ready in time for your wedding?


Sorry you're going through all of this. Weddings are stressful enough without having extras like this added to the mix.


Good luck!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
