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 purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
