Wedding Planner/Coordinator Budget ?

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

What are you all paying for your WC/WP? It looks like a lot of you are going with Maye. I've seen some pricing in the $1k - $2k price range; is this accurate and, if so, what type of services are you receiving--full planning (ie, finding and coordinating rehearsal, helping with more than day of) or day of only. Just curioius to find out if the services you're receiving compare to my WP whose fee is $2,750. Thanks!! Lisa

Maye's prices vary from approx $675-$975+ depending on the type of ceremony. There is extra paperwork involved if you have a religious/civic ceremony vs. a symbolic one.

 

You also pay a premium for her vendors. I think it's 10%.

 

I will say she's GREAT to work with. You'll find allot of cabo vendors take FOREVER to get back you to or there are some that are spanish speaking only which may prove difficult. Maye gets back same day or next in most cases and is willing to work within your budget.

We are working with Maye. Since we are bringing our own Officiant, etc. we are paying $600 plus there is the 10% "tax" on all her vendors. This includes the rehearsal, our ceremony, reception and welcome dinner.

 

Whether you decide to use her or someone else, I would highly warn against Weddings in Paradise - Tammy had an awful experience with them. Also I started working with Bella Brides and they are totally overpriced.

Yes, to add on with what Kash said "DON'T" use Wedding in Paradise. Trust me, I ended up releasing them from their contract, lost my deposit money but TOTALLY worth it IMO because they suck.

Hey Angela and Kashmira...

 

I am working with maye too now and she quoted me the $975. I asked her what th judge and doctor fee were and she said $300. I assumed it was in addition to the 975?? Is it part of the 975?

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
