That was my situation when I hired Maye. I think it was worth it. Since I hired her a lot of unexpected things have come up - like can she get us pies rather than a cake, how much are table runners to rent, etc. I think it's worth it.

Hi-

Everyone on the forum seems to like working with Maye, but what about the rest of her team? When I contacted her to see if she was available, she told me Paulina would be my designated coordinator.

(If Paulina doens't have positive reviews, any other WC suggestions would be great!)

Also, what is a reasonable price. She quoted 975 plus 10% tax for for planning, coordinating and supervising the wedding. If I'm not having an official ceremony, how much could I ask for a reduction given that I won't require paper work with the judge or minister, translation, or blood tests/certificates?

Thanks for all your input!

I would definitely let her know that you are not planning on having an "official" ceremony and see what she says. We are bringing our own officiant and she is charging me $600 (mind you I hired her about 9 months ago so most likely her rates will have gone up a bit).

 

I have not worked with any of her other coordinators.

 

However I can say that I did contact about 4 or 5 coordinators/companies in the beginning and Maye had tyhe best price. It makes sense because if someone's rate is very high then there's no reason to hire them (you can just use the hotel coordinators).

For flowers, we got ours from a florist in San Jose - Floreria Pamela. I used Suzanne Morel's spa for hair/makeup and Ixchel for trasport. I was extremely pleased with all of my vendors.

That said, if you don't want to deal with managing your vendors, then use Maye's so she will handle them, but be prepared to pay a 10% service charge on all of the vendors she books for you.
Hi Christa,

Do you have a picture of the Trio that Maye booked for you? I'm courious to see what they wore.

Thanks!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
