Wedding Coordinator or just use forum notes and suggestions (& day of coordinator)?

Recommended Posts

I think it depends on where you are getting married if your wedding is at Dreams I dont think you need a wedding co-ordinator as they have fantastic ones, I am nearly finished organising everything and have not found it hard at all, even from Australia!

I just had my wedding with Vallarta Wedd Planners and they did an amazing job I cant wait to show all my pictures the girls where on top of everything is a team of 3 girls I recommend this girls I had nothing to worry about and they went beyond their job.

Can you give me Rachel Hansens information? I'm getting married in Cabo San Lucas Barcelo Deluxe Palace and I'm thinking of using a coordinator in addition to the hotel wedding planner.

Hi Anna,


I almost posted the exact same thread! ...until I met the right coordinator. :) My wedding is going to be pretty simple and relatively "non-traditional" (no flowers, cake, etc), so I figured I could do it all myself. In contacting a vendor, I was referred to Tammy Wolff, a wedding coordinator. I've actually engaged many coordinators, but have only received one response and I believe it's because of my budget (under $10K). Tammy and I spoke and she actually thought of several ways to save me money! She had great suggestions and because she's lived and worked in Cabo for around 20 years (She's originally from California), she seems to have a lot of contacts. I thought her prices were reasonable (I compared a package deal from Casa Dorada to what she and I could work up together and I was saving $700 including her fee). She doesn't do day of coordination, and the fee sheet she sent me was very reasonable (for my wedding of 35, we're around the $1500 mark--she charges by the guest number).

Good luck!

I would lvoe to save money on the coordinator but of course don't want to create too much work or have stuff left out. I just feel like the hotels coordinator might be enough. my wedding is going to be about 50 or 60 people... 

would love your thoughts and to hear your experiences!

also, how much is the typical wedding coordinator fee??

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
