I've been reading and searching over the threads but I still need some help. I've been reaching out to WC in PV but have only heard back from one so far-- Vallarta Wedd. Has anyone worked with them? I thought that they were Vallarta Weddings until tonight when I saw on a previous thread that the names of the coordinators didn't match up-- weird way to figure out that there are two WC's with similar company names.
Anyways, would you all be willing to give me your thoughts? Also, this may sound silly but what were some important things you felt needed to be asked before selecting someone. I want to make sure I'm completely prepared but to be honest I just feel completely confused about this whole destination wedding thing.
One more question: about how far out did you start planning and looking for a planner? My FI and I are hoping for an October 2009 wedding but I'm worried now that I'm already starting too late! I never would've thought 10 months would be too late for a destination wedding but I'm getting that feeling. Thanks so much for your help! I really appreciate it!

I am currently working with Vallarta Wedd Planners and Johanna is helping me plan my wedding. They have been great. They are pretty quick to respond. I am getting married Nov 09. I think you are ok to start planning now. At first I was not going to go with a planner but I was having such a hard time getting in contact with hotel and I was not planning on going to PV to do a site visit. I emailed a bunch of the WC and Vallarta Wedd Planners got back to me quickly and was willing to plan with me right away. Others told me I was to early and they did not have their calenders ready yet. I don't know of anyone on this site that has used them. But I have had a great experiance so far. I highly recommend them. Have you talk to them yet? let me know if there is anything I can help you with

My best advice for researching a coordinator is talking to them. I set up interviews with each of the ones I was interested and assessed how easier I thought they would be to work with and how compatible we were personality wise.
I think part of the confusion with Vallarta Weddings is there may be several coordinating companies with that name. I went with Eva and Michael from Vallarta Weddings (Vallarta weddings). They are a husband and wife pair, and the only ones that work at that company. But I do seem to remember there were some other coordinators with similar company names.
I LOVED Eva and Michael, and they are sort of the underdogs of PV Wedding coordination as they are not as well known, so you’ll have an easier time booking with them. You can check out my review here:
And a review from another bride that used them here:
I think you really can’t go wrong with this coordinator, but definitely send an email or set up a phone interview so you can get your own feel of them.
Best of luck!!

I think in deciding a coordinator, it's important to first lay out what you want them to do and what you expect. I wanted a relatively simple wedding and was really excited about contributing some DIY, so Dazzling Details wasn't a fit; we e-mailed back and forth a bit and I got the impression that because they are so detail oriented, it's best if you're a pretty hands off bride (correct me if I'm wrong?!). I also think, once you start talking to some of them, you will be able to tell pretty quick if you click with someone - you want the coordinator to reduce stress, not cause it! Just my 2cents! Good luck!
