    Not sure if I am helpful but I'm from KC, MO and I'm getting married in Cabo in Dec. I originally hired a wedding coordinator, but after being on BDW, seriously, all the ladies here are a GREAT help. I since dropped my outside coordinator (she was hard to reach & was pricing too high) and now working exclusively with the on site person, Marianna. I think it comes down to where you have your wedding and how much of a hands on groom/bride you are. Most of my vendors are from the referrals from the brides on this site. You'll find very useful info.

    Good luck and happy planning!

      Hello theinquizitivegroom!

      That question you just made has so many great answers. Many people come to mind when organizing an excellent and an unforgettable wedding!

      For example, Mandy and everyone at Sunset Weddings are great to work with. Muriel and everyone at Fiestas Los Cabos are also very good. Not to say the least on Illeana & Lubba at Romantic Cabo Weddings and Adriana at Ultimate Destination Weddings.

      In fact, Adriana is a certified wedding coordinator, so she comes with all the bells and whistles.

      Please PM me directly if you need any further info, happy planning!

        My fiancee and I are torn between a destination wedding or a wedding closer to her family. So it is down to Kansas or Cabo san Lucas...... I know very tough calls both beautiful exotic, well nevermind....... anyways I have been give homework by my blushing Bride and that is to find recomendations for 3 wedding planners with experience in Cabo. and honestly who better then all you ladies and couple guys.

        I have been reading all the reviews and that has helped but if you guys could help it would be much appreciated.

        Wow!! I wish my fiance was half involved in the wedding!! I'm kinda jealous! He's just saying yes to everything I say, so hey, I'm gonna have the wedding of my dreams, jajaja.

        Ok, back to the question, I would totally recommend you to be your own WC because with some help in this forum and a little bit of will you can save that money and use it in something else. I'm having over 100 guests, the whole ceremony and party need to be bilingual (Mexican and American family, don't ask), my work and the diet and (so far) I haven't went crazy, so try it and if it gets overwhelming the hire one.
        And beware, some WC may add a little extra to the normal vendor prices to make more money than the fee they already charge, so check twice!

        Personally, I like Baja Weddings, but I chose to have lots of beautiful flowers and Juan Carlos to do my photography, so I had to cut cost!

        If you need some contact info let me know, I have a friend living in Cabo.

        Good Luck!

            I would recommend Baja Weddings (ask for Coleen, the owner), but each Resort has their own WC and it comes with the Wedding Package, so check that option too.

            Good luck and happy planning!

              I am working with Gaby at Baja Wedding. My experience with her so far has been great, she answers emails and phone calls promptly and she is very friendly, has plenty of suggestions for me when I ask for ways to cut costs.

                I would suggest however that you do not rely completely on the wedding planners' vendors. In other words do some of your own research, you may find vendors with better prices and better reviews just by asking the brides (and grooms) of the BDW forums!

                  Can anyone give me the contact info (email address?) for Amy Abbott? I tried doing the "contact" thing on their website and nobody got back to me, so I'd like to email her directly and get a price quote. Thanks!

                      Hey! I am a Cabo bride using Amy Abbott too - so far so good, although she sometimes takes a while to answer emails and then only answers part of them...
