Anyone hire a wedding planner????

Recommended Posts

Hey girlies!

 

I was just wondering if anyone has hired a wedding planner in addition to the WC at the resorts?

We are getting married in Puerto Rico on April 25, 2009 and decided to hire a wedding planner (already paid her lots of $$$) the problem is that I'm confused as to WHAT she is suppose to be doing?!

-And when I email her it takes days for her to reply & when she does she's not answering my questions! Her email is about a totally different subject?doh.gif

I'm now thinking, what's the frickin pointhuh.gifhuh.gif

I hired her so that she would take AWAY the stress!!!!!!

 

Or is it because we still are almost 9 months away?

Am I crazy? What do you think?

The Wedding planner I'm using in Bermuda, she is handling the minister, taxis, marriage license, hotel venue (since we're taking a cruise there), photographer, flowers (if I hadn't hired AA), Anything special like my cake and champagne through the hotel. She works in direct contact with the hotel venue I choose and plays liason between myself and the hotels WC.

 

Lately I emailed her and haven't heard anything back. Although it is peak wedding season, also alot going on in Bermuda this week. So I've chalked it up to that. Normally she's been good with getting back to me. My wedding isn't until May 09, so I'm sure I'm just being impatient with some things, just cause I'm OCD.

 

I'm sure most wedding planners are the same. If you're unsure, just call her and ask her straight out. YOU paid her a deposit or some sort of hold, so she's at liberty to you, and to answer YOUR questions. If you don't think there's something she's doing properly for you, call her out on it. The worse she could say is, thats not in her contract to handle.

 

Hope this helps. Good Luck!! hug2.gif

Thanks for your response! I thought maybe I was the only one! The funny thing is that I just heard from her- because she needs the deposit for our "rooms contract"!!!!!!!!!!!!!drum.gif
That's just perfect,more money!

Well, we have a WC here in CO. and then the one at the resort. My fabulous coordinator actually booked my hotel in person while she was in Mexico. She has taken care of all the booking, always answers my emails the same day, has done all the emailing to the WC in Mexico, and is a pleasure to work with. We didn't have to pay her anything, she just asked that we book through her. I am going to email the WC in Mexico (I haven't personally contacted her yet) and send her a copy of the ceremony, hair pic, cake pic, make-up pic, flowers. (We pick out the location when we arrive in Mexico a few days before the wedding) Basically to answer your question, you shouldn't have to worry about booking or any of that stuff, that's the WC's job, ESPECIALLY if you have paid her $$$. It will all work out:)

I first had a WC from the hotel but she also did not respond my e-mails, or very late just like you. So, I told her that I would switch because I don't need all the stress. You also should have a good connection with her, she must know what your style is etc. The weddingplanner I know have is great!! She does the following services like:

 

- meet and great at the hotel

- providing pre-screened vendors

- assisting with wedding color and theme

- advising etc and inlimited calls and e-mails

 

She also helps with the civil wedding planning, wedding etiquette, time table and the coordination of the wedding day. Actually she does everything, replies my e-mail the same day.

 

If you have a weddingplanner you shouldn't have the stress!! Ask her why she doesn't respond you questions and if you didn't pay her, switch to another one. A professional one will have a contract with her services and other information. Good luck and happy planning!!!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
