Can anyone recommend a Wedding planner/coordinator in Riviera Maya?

Recommended Posts

I am working with Lissette Velez from Celebracion Cancun. I went to the Riviera Maya and was able to sit in on one of the religious ceremonies she coordinated. I sent her a deposit today!!!

 

It is hard to work on wedding planning being so far away but after seeing her and her work this weekend we have no doubts that we will be in good hands!!!

 

Let me know if you guys want her contact information.

Another good thing - she is the one who suggested the resort we are getting married at. Her company has a good relationship with the resort and if it hadn't been for her I wouldn't have seen a few of the resorts she showed me. She is very prompt and her English is really good too. I feel more comfortable using someone from the outside to help even though I am getting married at an all inclusive.

I am using weddings riviera maya and working with Gelena as well. Things seem to be going well so far. I have also been down there at met both Gelena and Louisa in person, they seem to have a ton of ideas and also always say that if you give them a picture of exactly what you want they can usually give you prices on it or help you find something in your budget.

I'm using Julieta Wedding Events,  she's so fantastic!  She has the biggest discounts of anybody, great communication, and she is setting up my ceremony, reception, and flowers, and even music.  Then my MOH contacted her and was able to set up a bachelorette club hopper night for half the price of anywhere we found on line.  She's free and then charges 10% service fee for things where she actually needs to set up (like my ceremony/rececption decor and flowers).  That's her only commission.  I can't recommend her more highly.  http://www.floresjulieta.mex.tl/

I think it depends how soon you want to start using her and how much you need her to coordinate - I think between $500 and $2000 is the norm for the RM.

Are you working with a US Based planner? They usually have strong connections with the resorts and whatnot. That way, you can work with a US planner to achieve what you want. Feel free to message me if you need more help!

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
