Wedding Coordinatiors VS Brides

Recommended Posts

love.gifIs it common practice for a Wedding Coordinator to get a better rate than a Bride inquiring for the SAME item?  I would like to get the Vendors input here, because if it is true than I better get myself a coordinator.  Or does this happen sometimes by mistake, I understand these things happen.  Has anyone else fallen victim to different rates depending on who was asking?

Hi Xtenna,

 

I know what you mean... however us, as a decor and planning company we give the same prices to all of our clients. Wether the direct bride contact us or the WC...

Let me know if you have any questions.

I bet they do get better rates in a lot of cases, but that makes sense.  They are frequent customers, and often can buy "in bulk" or at least promise future business.  In theory, a bride is a one time customer so a vendor may not be able to offer them the same price.  BUT since you usually need to pay a WC, think about what you'd pay them vs. what you'd save with those vendors that do offer a better price.  Something to consider!

At first I was planning to organize my DW all by myself but as I don´t live in Cancun I couldn´t do it so I got a WC and she takes a lot of work out of my back. She gets good deals for me as she buys  " in bulk" and she knows the place, the flowers for the season, ans so on. It´s me who decides but she has been really helpful. I guess if you put everything in a balance you will end up paying about the same but you will be exhausted from all the planning and on your wedding day you need someone to take care of everything while you enjoy your day!!

As somebody mentioned as a WC we get better prices because we work on a daily basis with some of our suppliers so we can offer discounted rates and in many case we combine stuff we own ( more and more!) and can play around with pricing to make it lower as posible

The biggest thing to consider here (and this directly affects pricing at times) is that MANY WC's actually may get a commission based on the vendor they are recommending and this can have an impact on the rates they are getting for certain products... 

 

I have heard from WC's (specifically our own wedding coord yazmin de lamora), that there are vendors who often supply more like "Wedding decor suggested" above in their post, so discounted rates are offered as well.

 


Good luck with your planning!

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
