Hello Ladies!

I loved Vanessa Jaimes' website but am having a lot of trouble contacting her. I've sent her a message on her website as well as through email. Has anyone else had trouble reaching her? How were her prices? She does such beautiful work!

I met with Vanessa Jaimes and Marvin Ku Kinil during my May 2009 site inspection. Vanessa met me at the car rental company, shortly after I arrived in Cancun. I respect Vanessa's artist design, but I ended up choosing Marvin Ku Kinil since he went out of his way to impress me with a half dozen designs he created for me during our first meeting. I did not want to pay a minimum of $2,000 for flowers, so I chose Marvin as he has no minimum.

 

Here is a link to his website.

Thank you so much for the advice Marie!

I did finally hear back from Vanessa and was shocked to hear her minimum charge! Hopefully Marvin will be as helpful to me as he was to you!

Thanks again!

I'd like to recommend Robb Hiner. He works with John Gray of John Gray's Place (a restaurant) in Playa del Carmen. I had emailed him a couple of inspiration photos, and he put together the bouquet and table centerpieces beautifully. I'm attaching a couple photos of the bouquet.

 

Overall, he charged me $400 for 6 table centerpieces and a bouquet, all generously sized and beautifully done.

 

Here's his contact info:

Vanessa is very hit and miss with getting ahold of her - she responds quickly sometimes but takes her time other times!!! Very frustrating!! She actually lowered her minimum to $1500 which is better but still seems high

 

thanks for the other contacts I will try them out!

Has anyone used Julieta for other general decor? I am just curious how she might compare to some of the larger production companies.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • 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!!!
