Book at AI but then hire separate coordinator?

Recommended Posts

Advice: We are thinking of booking the location of our wedding at Dreams Cabo San Lucas; going with the "free" wedding package and then hiring a separate DW Coordinator to handle everything else, i.e. decorations, photography, music, makeup etc etc.

Has anyone done it this way? If so, was it worth it or a hassle?

On the other hand, if anyone did everything through the AI -- were you satisfied with the vendors they provided?

 

Also -- is it worth it to get the biggest and most expensive package? Or better to go with the "free" on and just add on?

 

Thanks!!!!!

welcome nancy...dreams has some of the best resort wedding coordinators so you may want to just start with them to see if that is sufficient and if not, hire an outside WC...there are many dreams cabo brides on here (i am one of them) and reviews so we really do have a ton of dreams cabo, vendor, pricing info on the forum..

 

my review is in my sig...other dreams cabo reviews:

Tammy offered some great advice about Dreams Wedding Planners. I have worked with Yarai, Yesica and Marianna the Dreams WP's and they are some of the best hotel WP's in Cabo. I always feel they have the clients best interest in mind. If you feel you need an 'outside' WP there are many fantastic ones doing great work here in Cabo.

I am just working with the dreams WC, and between the forum and Marianna I have had more than enough information. Def no need for an additional wedding coordinator in my opinion.

I am getting married at Dreams Cabo in just a few weeks. I have only worked with the onsite coordinatiors and they have been GREAT. I have to admit that when my wedding was several months away, emails were slower responded to, but they were always answered. As the time grew near for my wedding, the response time picked up and so did my confidence with choosing to use the onsite coordinators. I wouldn't waste the money on hiring someone to do the job that is included with the "free" package. I was able to choose the vendors that I wanted and I am confident that my wedding will be beautiful.

    • 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.
