Tropical Maui Weddings vs. Precious Maui Weddings
Posted 17 July 2010 - 04:21 AM
I've read so many great reviews about Deanne at PMW, but haven't gotten the chance to speak with her yet. However, Lori at TMW I have spoken to and she seems fantastic so far, and their prices do seem reasonable as well...at least so far. However, I've heard the same thing about Deanne as well. What exactly is considered "reasonable" for WC fees?
Do any of you have any advice on either of these coordinators? I'd really like to know about hidden costs, fees, outcomes, etc. Any information would be great! Thanks!

But I will say, I was frustrated many times during the planning process. If you want someone to be super organized and communicate often, I don't think you'll find that with Lori. That's kind of what I was looking for so I was disappointed in those regards. She also seems to communicate much better by phone..that just wasn't advantageous for me being all the way in VA, working rotating shifts.

I'm a bit of an organizer myself- but she let me have my hands in everything. However, she was there when I needed help or suggestions or didn't want to deal with something. I can't say enough WONDERFUL things about her!!
Her website is outdated and doesn't reflect the kind of work she does- so please don't let that scare you (it did with me at first). But give her a call and talk to her. It's important that you get along with your coordinator and are on the same wave length. Here is her website. Seriously- Cherise is AMAZING!!! The Perfect Wedding A Beautiful Maui Experience

msjulie5475: That is some great advice. I'll start compiling my list now!
Tovaqt: Thanks for the recommendation! It sounds like you had a really great experience with her. I hadn't come across their website yet..I'll give her a call too! Thanks!

Also when we booked our flights and are now arriving into Maui a few days earlier she changed my appointment to get our marriage license so we could do it before our guests show up.
