Flirt: An Urban Boutique Salon
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
I wasn't 100% satisfied with the way my hair came out. It just wasn't exactly how I thought it would be. It also didn't hold up very well. Started falling down when we were taking pictures at the beach. Also there were 6 girls I made appointments for to get their hair done and they only scheduled 2 people to do hair. One which was inexperienced and asking the other stylist how to do certain up do's. I felt very rushed and so did the maids. They almost didn't have time to do my mom's hair.

I highly recommend this place to anyone in need of an engagement ring or wedding bands. This is a very small family run business located in Old Town , San Diego. The quality of their Jewelry is 100% the best and their service is Excellent. They were so pleasant and kind and are willing to work with you on price. To this day they remember our names when we stop in to say hello and they always want to make sure you are completely satisfied with your purchase by following up with you.

If you know you don't want anything fancy and you don't want to spend a ton of money on a Cake that you might not even get to enjoy this is the best way to go. We did cupcakes for our wedding and one small sized cake for my husband and I to cut. I purchased my own cake plates and tiers at Michaels and had the cupcakes arranged on the tiers and had our small 8" round cake placed on top. It was adorable. Our cucakes were yellow cake with white Buttercream Frosting and a cherry on top. Very simple but so cute. Our cake was baby blue with little white dots and Frosting made to look like Ribbon was wrapped around it. Total cost for 100 cupcakes and a small 8" Cake $100.00. Even better it tasted amazing and all of our guests were making comments all night about how much they loved it. The only reason I gave them a 9 instead of a 10 was because the Ribbon Frosting around the cake was supposed to be white and it was the same color as the cake "Blue", But it still looked great!

Coronado Bay View Park
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Perfect spot to have a wedding outdoors and some what private. It's a small Park on the bay with a Picture "esque" view of the downtown skyline and sail boats passing by. Perfect place for Formal Pictures. Is really only good for small weddings with under 100 Guests.

Very nice people to Work With. Jen my florists was right on and knew exactly what I was thinking when I described to her my ideas. She even through in a few extras such as ribbon and embelishments to my bouquets free of charge.

Our photographer is who our guests complimented us on the most. She captured every moment and I never even knew she was there. All of our pictures turned out great and she was very affordable.

Great spot to hold a reception if you are looking to having your wedding in Coronado. Brand new facility with glass windows all around that open up to the Bay. Also has a nice outdoor patio area with heat lamps and lighting for nighttime which we used for cocktail hour. They also provide any Tables you need and will set up the room for you exactly how you want. You also have the option of renting either half the room for smaller weddings or the entire room. A plus is you can bring in your own Caterer and Bartender.

Iwould not recommend this place to anyone not even for a dinner for 2. I had planned a dinner with them for 40 people 6 months in advance. I gave them a deposit check to hold the date and to go towards the bill at the end of the night. We were supposed to have a room to ourselves for 2 hours upstairs and a menu I selected and emailed over to them. When we showed up the restaurant had no clue who we were and to be expecting a party of 40 for a private dinner rehearsal. Our check was already cashed and no one had any idea. I was able to get a hold of the events coordinator who did not apologize for the huge misunderstanding on her part. She simply forgot. I was rushed over the phone to give her our menu selections which she lost. I couldn't remember everything as I had sent it to her a month earlier, so we ended up with less choices and terrible tasting food. Not to mention our dinner was not private. We were seated in a room full of people all around making it uncomfortable when we gave our speeches. When I called the next morning to get a hold of the Owner we were treated with such disrespect and were not refunded for the many items we were over charged for. We had agreed to a menu before that had lesser prices. I was basically told I was a liar and that they never received anything from me. But yet they had cashed our deposit check 3 months prior. I also had several emails of proof that I had sent them the menu selections but he didn't seem to want to admit any fault or offer any apology. I warn anyone to stay away from this place. These people have no respect to do what is right and it disgusts me how they treat their customers. The food was also terrible.

Old Town Trolley Tours

We rented the "White Wedding Trolley" to transport the Bridal Party from the Ceremony site to the Beach where we took pictures and then it took us over to the reception site to drop us off. Lots of fun, very Charming and makes for good pictures. A little pricey.

A very Beautiful Place to stay but very pricy. The Bathroom and Bedroom were large. The hotel has lots of different pools, one specifically for adults which was nice although I would have to say it seemed to be more of a family resort. Not too many young honeymooners to meet. We were a little disappointed in the beverage service at the pool. It was extremely slow. Many times we had to get up from our lounge chair to find a waitress to order drinks from . It was a little frustrating considering the amount of money we were spending there on food and the room. We still had an incredible and very memorable time. The location was also nice. Very close to lots of other fun towns to explore.
