recommendation for a wedding planner

Recommended Posts

I sympathize with anyone trying to plan a destination wedding, and if you are considering the Playa del Carmen area, pat yourself on the back for having a great idea. Yes, indeed, you are brilliant!


I am posting here because I wish I had access to a resource like this when I was trying to find a planner a few years ago for my wedding. The beginning stages were rough because I didn't feel informed about how to choose a coordinator local to Playa. I even took my bridal party to a wedding conference, and connected with a couple different planners, one of whom I lost a good deal of money on because I hired her without the benefit of hearing other brides review her work. I'm sure all you brides out there know how crucial it is to pick the right person, as there is no such thing as flying down to Mexico to 'see how things are going' with your wedding or 'staying on top' of the progress. It just takes a certain amount of blind faith...


So all that being said, I want to recommend someone to you, as a bride that wishes a similar anonymous person on the internet (or friend!) had made the recommendation to me before I spiraled down the wedding vortex of panic - it would have saved me a lot anguish. When I found Leanne Rogers of Leanne Marie Weddings, I felt enormous relief. She is a bilingual (Spanish & English) American planner based in Playa, and she is the perfect choice for brides who want to stay at an all inclusive but don't trust the hotel wedding planner, as well as those that want a very bride-tailored wedding 'in town' in Playa. Whatever your vision is for your wedding, she will help you make it happen, and I think when you talk to her it's obvious that she genuinely cares about making your day special.


Guess what, she answers all her emails in a timely and professional manner, even if you are being crazy. Ha! And guess what else, she doesn't even hint that you're being crazy even when you are. Double HA! I've posted a full review of my experience with this company here on this website under 'Vendor Reviews', and this is the company website: www.leannemarieweddings.com


Best of luck, bride-to-be's, and if you have any questions feel free to reach out!

    • 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?
