Gifts for Wedding Coordinator

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! My WC at Moon Palace has been very helpful to me all this time. I want to show my appreciation by giving her a small token. Any ideas on what to give her?

I was thinking the same thing about my wedding planner. I have hired an outside planner up here in the states, and she has been super super fantastic. I was going to treat her to a spa day once we get down to Secrets Maroma Beach. I'm not sure if that would be something that you'd like to do for your coordinator. If she works there, her dicount might be better. But its an idea wink.gif

 

Im sure she'd also appreciate a letter of recommendation along with a thank you note from you and your-to-be husband thanking her for her specifics. Maybe along with a wedding picture. That is the best thing for them since they can always remember and use it for thier business as well.

The spa day idea sounds perfect, and I'm sure the letter of recommendation would be greatly appreciated as well. Too often these days people don't take the time to recognize great customer service, it's only when things go wrong you hear anything. She'd appreciate it I'm sure!

I say just give her a generous tip the day of your wedding for all her hard work. Money talks. Ask who her immediate supervisor is and send a rave review about her.

 

The spa idea is nice, but as mentioned, she probably gets a better discount or would prefer to go somewhere else anyhow since she's there all day every day.

You're lucky you get to do that. Unfortunately, I do not meet Claudia until three days prior to the wedding. I guess I will have to with a tip and a letter of recommendation.

I gave our wedding cordinator a cash tip... she earned it!! The average salary in Mexico is much less than it is here in the states. Also, I didn't feel that I knew our coordinator well enough personally to buy a gift that she would find meaninful.

 

I like the idea of the letter of recommendation. I think I may need to do that. Great idea!!

Definitely tip her with cash, but if you want to give her something more "gift-like" you could always bring her something like nice smelling lotions and candles from a bath store.

My friends and family are always asking to bring them lotion from Victorias Secret....so common here, but the only place to get it in Cancun is the duty free shop, and the selection is VERY limited...

I also LOVE the idea of writing a reccomendation letter. The hotels that I used to work for in Cancun would publish the comments that guests left on their comment cards once a month - it was so awesome to have your name in those comments for all the staff to see. if the hotel that you stay at has comment cards - try to reference the standout members of the staff by name!

I will probably give a small gift ($15-$20) with the recomendation letter AND the tip.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
