Should I get my own wedding planner??

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I'm planning a DW in Aruba for the summer of 2010. I understand that each resort has it's own Wedding Coordinator that assists with the event. I am also considering hiring a Wedding Planner in the U.S. who shares her business with an Aruban planner. I like this idea because I would be able to meet with her and she would be easily accessible. She would also assist with my guest travel plans.


Does it make sense or should I just use the resort WC and find a travel agent to help my guests with their travel plans??


Thank you!

Sounds like that could be a really convenient partnership.

I have a wedding planner, and she comes with the package, lover her so far. All is done by email, easy enough for us.


My aunt is taking care of guests travel, as she works for Carnival, who we are cruising with.


If it makes you feel more at ease to have an extra link, then go for it. There is a lot of planning involved and lot's of details to oversee.

Good luck!

I say if it's in your budget -- go for it!

Having a local person will probably relieve a lot of stress closer to the day -- and in planning out the details along the way smile29.gif


if I'd had that option -- beleive me, I would have done it:-)


Good luck!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
