Coordinator/Vendor Recommendations?

Recommended Posts

Hey All! New to the forums and recently engaged... still in the initial stages of planning and it's becoming super overwhelming, from choosing a location, venue, etc. I am considering a wedding in Cabo San Lucas and was hoping to get some advice based on your own experiences. The two venues I was considering are the Sunset Mona Lisa and Esperanza Resort. Since the Mona Lisa is a restaurant, I would have to hire my own coordinator or work with the vendors myself. Does anyone have a good coordinator they would recommend? Or, if I end up doing the planning myself, does any one have vendor recommendations for flowers, photog/videographer, etc? Also, does anyone have any experience working with the in house planner at the Esperanza? Sorry for all the questions and thanks in advance for any advice!!

 

Much appreciated,

Joyce

Hi Joyce,

 

I am planning my wedding in Cabo at the Sunset Da Mona Lisa in April of 2012.  I chose the SDML because of how beautiful the venue is and for its views, I'm a total view girl.  I contemplated not hiring a wedding coordinator, but I don't want to be running around like a chicken the day before and the day of the wedding.  I want to enjoy this time.  I choose Tammy Wolff as my wedding coordinator.  She is very sweet and so far right on the ball with every thing.  Her prices seem very reasonable also.  They way I figured it, I don't live in Cabo, so I don't know who the best floraist are, or the best photographers, Tammy does and helps steer me in the right direction by giving me a list of possible vendors to look at, this is a lot easier than researching 50 on my own.

 

I don't know much about the Esperanza, so I can't help you there!

 

Good luck!  Choosing the venue is the hardest!

Hi Joyce,

 

I'm a photographer based in San Diego and I photographed a wedding in Cabo and the couple used One Happenings. They were amazing! Leslie and Adriana are so nice and easy to work with and the details were awesome. Check them out and let them know, I sent you.

 

Happy planning!

Hello - I don't know if you have already made your decisions about your wedding. As a frequent traveller to Cabo and also a professional wedding planner, I just wanted to say that you might want to consider Cabo Azul. It is truly gorgeous, huge rooms, the chapel is outstanding and unique and I really think it is a very special resort and the price is so reasonable. As for vendors, not sure where you are from, there are some terrific local vendors. (However, personally, I would prefer to bring in your own photographer if possible as you can research someone locally and I do think it's important to meet with and have a good connection with the person who will be shooting your wedding. There are loads of other amazing places in cabo, you can message me and I'll give you more info. I am new to the site, was a destination bride last summer.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
