(Attn:Past Dreams Brides) Dreams Wedding Coordinator vs. Outside Wedding Coordinator
Posted 22 May 2008 - 08:39 PM
I need your help! I'm trying to decide whether to hire an outside wedding coordinator or go with the Dreams Wedding Coordinator (Yessica). My fiancÃ© and I are planning for 75 guests to attend (TBD). As such, I'm trying to get an understanding of Yessica's responsibilities when planning our wedding. Does Yessica work with outside vendors if Dreams does not provide the details we want (i.e. flowers, cake, music, and photography)?? We were thinking about going with the Dreams Ultimate Wedding Package, but I know this package is only for 20 guests, and only provides 50 some pictures with this package. So, if I did not want the standard cake and photographer that Dreams provides, would Yessica work with outside vendors to get this? Or would I need to hire an outside wedding coordinator to do this??
I need to figure out whether paying an outside wedding coordinator a $500.00 deposit, plus a coordination fee of $2800.00 is really worth it. Or would Yessica provide everything that I need or at least recommend vendors that could assist me? I'm just not sure what to do. I know planning for 75 guests is a little more on the larger scale, so that is why I was considering hiring an outside wedding coordinator. However, I want someone who will work for me and I don't want to waste $3200.00, when I could have really done a lot of this on my own.
For those past brides that were married at Dreams, and used an outside wedding coordinator please provide your thoughts. For those that used the Dreams wedding coordinator, please provide your thoughts as well. I need to make a decision by 6/1/08. I appreciate any help/advice.
Thanks so much!!

As for outside vendors the WC did tell me that they weren't allowed anymore - I know it might be disappointing but they won't use crap their reputation is too good and it could save you mega $$ which could easily spend somewhere else.
I'd save on the outside WC if I was you

I recommend reading everyones Cabo's wedding reviews, I spent a few hours reading what worked and didn't work for others. I made a list of vendors I heard good things about. We went with the free package and then added what we wanted. I have learned so much from reading everyone reviews and watching wedding videos. You can see other peoples weddings, this is very helpful. You can also PM others & get more info. I hope this helps. You can PM me and I can tell you more too!
There are a lot of Dreams Cabo brides on the forum who are super helpful! Did you go for your site vist yet? We just got back and I feel really calm now... again do what works for you Best of luck!

IMO you DO NOT need to use budgeted wedding money for an outside cordinator save that money and put it towards something else.
