Good Wedding Planner in Playa del Carmen

Recommended Posts



I know I'm a bit late on this post... but I think this a very relevant topic : )I emailed about 5 or 6 planners when we first started looking in Playa del Carmen. We we knew that we did not want an AI wedding at a huge resort, but that's about it. Most of the planners that got back to us just sent over there contract info and deposit requirements. I was very turned off by this so all of those planners were immediately taken out of the running. In the end we are going with Luisa at Weddings Riviera Maya.




I also included a questionnaire that I filled out to give the planners an idea of what we were looking for:


What time on would you like the ceremony?

How many guests will be attending?

So where do you want to get married? on the beach or in a catholic church?

The flowered arch colorful and full of flowers,simple or canopy?

Any music for the ceremony like mariachis or a Mexican Caribbean Trio?

Photographer? For ceremony, 4 hours, 6 hours or 8 hours?

Video? Ceremony only? Or the reception as well?

Make up for you? Any extra make ups?

Hairdresser for you? Any extra ones?

Wedding cake?

A cocktail hour after the ceremony?

How about the reception? Do you need one?

Buffet or seat down dinner?

A location on the beach or on 5 th avenue? Formal or informal?

Open bar or you would pay for drinks at the end of the evening?

Would you like a reception place with a dance floor?

Music for the reception: would you like a DJ, or a Caribbean trio or mariachis, a live band or classical music?


I hope this helps!

We used Mari Tripaldi - loved her!


We got married on the public beach, on calle 10 by the light house. Although Mari and Erica cleared most of the sunbathers, you cannot avoid the onlookers who stayed to watch the entire ceremony.

    • 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!!!
