    Yip, totally agree with you, outside coordinators are always a better and wiser choice and most likely more keen and familiar with coordinating a wedding....and, believe me, there are sooo many things to do in "coordinating", I have great admiration for them. The things they get are so exquisite, specially those really elaborate bouquets, really beautiful.
    Hope the best for your planning!

I got a response right away when I emailed one more time. And since then, we've talked on the phone several times. Just recently she sent an email to me which I didn't get so she followed up by calling to ask if I got it. I didn't receive it, so I was glad she did call.

        I'm also paying $3000 for her but I feel it's well worth it. We go out to visit in October, and she's going to set up the tastings, meeting with florist and set up a visit at the reception site (we're renting a villa near the Sheraton) and driving us around. I personally like not having to contact vendors and negotiate. I really believe she's doing the best to meet my budget because she knows all the vendors, their costs and the quality of their work. I've just collected images of what I'd like to see at my wedding and sent them to Amy to help me achieve what I want. She'll be there for the rehearsal and wedding day, coordinating the ceremony and reception set up, so again, I feel like the extra money is worth the peace of mind.

        Another thing is, since she's American, I never feel like things are lost in translation. I'm always confident that what I've communicated is fully understood. Hope that helps!

        I just wanted to share with you ladies a video made for FLC (Fiestas Los Cabos) at Villa Cortez, here's the link:

        I hope this helps!

          I thought the pictures of Sueno looked charming but then today I found some more photos on tripadvisor that made the place look like a dump! eek!

          Reassure me: is Sueno nice?
          If it is the Casa Sueno by Zippers in the Costa Azul area on the Corridor, then I would find something else, I've seen it in person...the pool/beach area is ok, but the house is very outdated and not really workable...but that's just my opinion.

            Thanks for the info! I really just didn't feel right about Sueno. I just got a bad vibe so I found a totally different place through SunCabo, Casa Del Costa Tranquilo. It's also known as Buzzard's Villa and it has a third name as well. It seems fannnnnnnnntastic. Have you ever heard of it or seen it in person?
            I am excited about it!

              I am a hairstylist and make-up artist living in Cabo and have worked with my fair share of Wedding Planners. I would try Rachael at Weddings In Paradise in Cabo. So far I have found that she is the best!

                I am also using Amy Abbott from FLC. I meet with her about a month ago for a site visit, and she was absolutely wonderful! She spent 2 full days with us and could not have been nicer!
                She is well worth the money!

                  Hello, I'm sure you'll find several options, just stick with the one you feel most comfortable with and answers your questions promptly. Here in cabo there are really, really pro coordinators, probably the best in Mexico. The market here is quite sophisticated and used to tending to special clients and requests
                  Thanks, I guess I should also note my fiancee wants outside wedding planners from a resort because she feels they then would work for us not the resort
