Considering Wedding Coordinator

Recommended Posts

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 was married at the Al Cielo Hotel and i used Erica and Maria from 'Weddings in Playa,' and i would highly recommend them... i already had my resort, photographer (Matt & Sol) and videographer (Paul Schrank) booked before i hired them... and they helped me with flowers, cake, DJ, minister, transportation for my guests, etc...

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.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
