    Glad to know others are in the same boat and I'm not the only one. I'm definitely going to do the list emails. Thanks!

      Hello Dolce,
      wow, you picked a very nice hotel, love the entrance hall and the architecture in general. Thanks also for the input into your wedding day, it always helps to know a little of what goes on in the minds of brides. As a photographer you don't always know the small nuances that WC get, I guess. We just shoot our hearts away
      Just to chime in here, this was my biggest concern too. Sometimes I would be waiting 1-3 days for a response. And since a lot of the time this is to negotiate things like prices I would get stressed out (since I wanted to make a decision on flowers but wanted to know all the differences of roses vs. lilies and prices for centerpieces, etc).

      However, I arrived a couple of days before my wedding and the WC was wonderful. Most of the things like location (beach, ballroom, outdoors) could be changed if we didn't like the setup, as could linens and lighting--we even were able to go over the music once we got there. And everything went flawlessly the day of. In fact our WC, Eva, was there until late until the night. When our flight was delayed because of a layover, she stayed around at the hotel until almost 9pm to greet us and go over the details when we got in. The customer service was amazing.

      So even though it may be frustrating, don't worry about emails taking a long time. I was so stressed everything would go badly, but it ended up being the most beautiful weddings and so many of my guests even commented on how fun and seamless it all seemed to be :)

        Hi Shorty,

        Here's my take because I'm like you and am eager to get quick responses. This is your wedding and your WC is being hired to make your life easier. I think one business day turnaround on email is reasonable, but if she's taking a couple days for her to get back to you and it's stressing you out, you should go with a different WC. Some brides are totally fine with waiting 3 days, but if that doesn't work for you, you shouldn't have to. As someone mentioned, the standard response time in Cabo is slower than in the US. But that said, there are WC's who respond faster than others and maybe you need one of those people if it's stressing you out to wait. I interviewed a few WC's and immediately ruled out the ones who did not respond promptly because I knew they wouldn't be a good fit for me. Nothing wrong with going with someone who's a better fit for your personality and needs. Good luck!

          Ya, 1 day turnaround time for e-mails doesn't sound all that bad, maybe two if the weekend gets "in the way". Good comment, liked it.
