What do you want to know from us Married Gals?

Recommended Posts

Maye is a wedding coordinator in Cabo that a lot of the girls on the forum have used. Natasha, (and all the other girls who used Maye C.) how far in advance did you book Maye? Do you think it's best to book most things on your own and then just use her for what you need or do you think you get better price quotes by using her?

Hi Glenda,

 

We booked Maye before anything (7 months before the wedding) during our first site visit when we were picking the site.

 

No - I would not book things on my own. Maye always came in at a reasonable price or better than I could get on my own (early on I checked her prices vs. things on the boards and/or calls I made on my own) and if I needed her to come down on something, she worked with me to descope (say, flowers) to get to the price I was looking for. You will waste hours just trying to get vendors to respond. I had SO few hassles because I paid Maye $800. If I added the value of my time, just dealing with flowers she paid for herself.

 

Margaret, if you are looking to do a legal ceremony in another portion of Mexico, you need to find out the local customs/requirements. They vary.

Just to add...

 

I hired Maye for full coordination. Sort of. Before I committed to use her I had already booked the photographer, the resort, the videographer, and the DJ. The DJ I booked was the same she uses and the rate was the same as through her.

Because of this I got her to give me a discount on her full services. I am using her for the Mariachi, Fire Dancers, and Flowers.

Ok I have more questions:

 

1. How much do salsa dancers cost?

2. How much do fire dancers cost?

3. For the girls who got married/are getting married at Dreams how long is the reception?

4. This question is specifically for Rebecca. I noticed that at your ceremony you had pretty vines and flowers around the gazebo. How much did that cost you if you don't mind my asking? Also, how much did the flower petals that your flower girl had cost you?

5. Did you guys tip people at the end and if so who?

 

Whooo had to get all those questions off my chest. Thanks for the help guys.

I have a question!

Did you end up tipping or giving a gift to your WC after the wedding? I am trying to think of something thoughtful to bring for her - but I can't seem to think of anything....should we just give her a tip - and if so, how much?

We were quoted this (we chose the cuban couple)

Option A: Mexican Salsa Instructors / One Class

 

One Dancer $180.00

Couple $260.00

 

Option B: Cubans Salsa Instructors / One Class

 

One Dancer $220.00

Couple $380.00

 

2. How much do fire dancers cost?

 

We paid $675

We checked with Maye and she said she recommends tipping her people who do setup and the florist. We gave her money to cover 15% for both. We also provided drinks for the musicians, DJ, and photographer. We offered food for the photographer but he declined (he never took a break). The tip for the hotel (food and beverage) was included in their fee.
