        We used Concepto Rosa - Emma and Mayalen over there are truly amazing. Our wedding was featured on the wedding channel and they did such a great job with picture and little details. The bouquets, tables, chuppah were gorgeous. They were accessible for meetings on skype, sending us photos as often as we requested.


        They were really really great, I could not recommend them enough!

          We used Concepto Rosa. They were awesome. I couldnt access the review section for them - but they have great style and taste and were very responsive. I had a LOT of skype meeting with them and they seemed more than happy to put in all the extra time and energy. They had great, unique ideas and an incredible, positive attitude. They were a dream to work with.

            Hi Liz,

             

            We met with two wedding coordinators when we went to scout locations in July, Denise Courtney of Euforia and Joss Morales, owner of Unique Cancun Weddings. We didn't mean to double-time our coordinators, but it just so happened that we arrived in Cancun a little disorganized, so the hotel concierge staff was helping us to find a coordinator.  Due to a mixup/miscommunication between us, we ended up with two appointments with two different people. Although accidental, it turned out to be a good strategy (although we felt really bad about it!!); we got to see two very different styles and personalities, and they each showed us two very different types of places and ranges of possibilities. We decided early on that if we didn't have an overwhelming reason to go with one or the other, we would pick whoever showed us the venue we liked the best as a tie-breaker.

             

            Reflecting back on it now, I know Denise would've brought her own strong qualities to bear for us. She's a very hard worker, knows a lot of people in the Riviera Maya, and seems to be an expert contract negotiator. Euforia is very well established. But it all worked out for the best, because my FI and I both just adore Joss and feel that she really "gets" us as a couple and was more sensitive to and in-touch with our budget. No right or wrong answer, but I would advise you to consider personality as well as how big or established the company is. There's no substitute for someone that you just click with!

             

            If nothing else, you might try our approach of testing out two different coordinators ;-)

             

            Good luck!

             

            Lydia

              My husband and I worked with them for our July wedding.  We were amazed and thankful we choose them to work with.  Everything was exactly how we wanted it.  Perfection!!  :)

                Happy to hear Euphoria Events worked out so well for you! We were looking into them. Did you use them for wedding coordination or for flowers and rentals? Many of the reviews I have seen have been great but were only for flowers.

                    Just had our wedding in cancun & had Denise from euphoria as our wedding coordinator. Wish I could say all the good things everyone else did on the reviews of euphoria, however, our experience was quite different. We initially meet with Denise about 9 months prior to our wedding. We picked her based on all the great reviews she got here & after email correspondences with several other planners. We were not able to have our wedding at our first resort option because they did not allow outside planners. We decided that using an outside planner would be to our benefit since she would be working for us and not the resort. On our first meeting in cancun, we were able to pick our Rehearsal & wedding location & some decor details. We made a second visit 3 months before the wedding. A month prior to our visit, we had a phone conference with Denise to discuss details & what we expected to see when we visited. She promised we would be able to see a complete mock up of our tablescape - arrangement, linens, etc. When we actually visited, she had no samples to show us. We met with dj, photographer, caterer, etc. When meeting with the vendors, anytime my husband asked about cost, they were unable to give us pricing & merely advised us to ask Denise. I was clearly nervous after our trip & kept asking Denise to send me photos of what the linens would look like, flowers, etc. I felt I was being annoying since I had to keep asking. Now I wish I would've asked more. Fast forward to the wedding, since, I never saw photos of the items that were actually going to be used, I was quite disappointed with how cheap some of the selections looked. My sister got married 4 years ago & her planner was very detailed & was on top of everything. Her planners was had a checklist & was constantly asking her for selections. If you decide to use denise as your planner, I suggest you are very detailed with your expectations. Denise negotiated a rate for all of our guests at the resort where we had our wedding & when our guests were looking to book, they found rates much cheaper on Expedia. We had to complain several times before they finally decided to change the rates. & they didn't give us better rates, they just slightly raised their rates on Expedia. On my actual wedding day, I saw Denise for a total of 2 minutes only until the ceremony. I expected her to be more involved. My sister had to go look for her to make sure she picked up items we had for her to use at the reception. Our reception was indoors & when our guests arrived, the room was soo hot since they had just turned on the air. You would think they would know to turn it on hours before so it could be cool. I can go on & on but I feel this could get really long. My advice, definitely do research on your own before choosing any vendors. Meet with photographers, dj, bands, caterers, florist, etc. so you can get pricing. I wish we would've done that so we could then compare & be able to negotiate better. By using Denise as our planner, we never really got to see what the vendors were actually charging. Be very specific & expect to have to do a lot on your own. Having spent as much money as we did, I definitely expected more. I hope this helps make things a little easier for someone else so they don't have to go through what we went through.
