    Is anyone working with an outside (of your resort) Wedding Coordinator for your event?
    If so can you pass on their info please -
    There are things I want to purchase for guests when I get there and I want to get a little guidance.

    Thank you :)

            I am using an outside coordinator but I am still not sure if I would recommend her. She has awesome reviews from tons of brides on her website but I had a few bad run ins with her. It may just have been misunderstandings from having to communicate through emails. I will know for sure when my day comes. Her name is Irene...in case you do want it. She works for caribbean blue weddings.

              Hi,
              I am working with Federica from Micas De Miralls and she is AMAZING. She is well worth every penny and I love her! I went down to Playa last weekend and she helped me so much and drove us to all these places and still hasn't been paid. She is amazing and I would be shocked if our wedding didn't go well. Let me know if you want her information!

                I would like an outside coordinator just for the wedding day. Does anyone know if this is possible? I'm getting married at Dreams Tulum and have read that although the WC are extremely nice they aren't always on top of things and sometimes slow. I want to make sure someone is there to keep the ball rolling. Also, does anyone know how much an outside WC costs?!?!?

                  First of all thanks everyone for the helpful wedding coordinator suggestions - I did reach out to Marie and she is EXTREMEMLY helpful. For the day of wedding coordinating I'm actually using 2 family friends that are going to be at the wedding. And they were so happy to help, their not charging me anything. Did you think of asking one of your guests?

                    I've thought about asking a dear friend but at the same time I want her to ENJOY her vacation as opposed to chasing after my WC. Soo, don't know. After reading several reviews I think I am going to be on tequila therapy until after the wedding!!!!

                      monicaswave;
                      What run-ins did you have with Irene? I have just booked with her on the basis of the great reviews on the CBW weddings website.......now I'm a little concerned.
