hi there,

jend is right...if you are on a budget and having a wedding at a larger resort that has their own WC you may not need an outside coordinator.

lovely weddings is on the forum alot and tasha is using them.

raina used blanca and really loved her.

do NOT use Weddings in Paradise! they have had many complaints and one of our poor brides just had to fire them.

    Yes, yes, WIP sucks.. BAD. I was the soon to be bride that tried to work with them for 6 months and ended up ending the contract and loosing money because I was more stressed with them as our WC. Right now I'm trying to decide between Maye C. or Rosy with Lovely Weddings. I just came back from cabo on Friday morning and was suppose to meet with both of them, but here was a mix up and I wasn't able to meet with Rosy so I'm now trying to set something up with her to go over details over the phone before I make my finial decision.

    I agree with what everyone else said, if you plan to make your wedding legal in the states instead of Cabo, you can very easily do this on your own and save the money of a WC. That is unless you plan on having a lot of guests then I would recommend a day of coordinator.

    Please feel free to ask us questions, we have a lot of great girls on this forum who will make this process a lot easier for you.

      I have been using Baja Weddings (Emlee) and have been very happy with them thus far. They seem very knowledgeable and quick to respond to all my many questions. We are also just starting the planning process and so have not met with them in person yet. Baja Weddings: Home

          I worked with Maye and the hotel had an onsite coordinator as well. I really liked working with Maye and highly recommend her. She did a great job pre-wedding and during the wedding she supervised the vendors that she contracted.

          If your hotel has an onsite coordinator - all the better. I clearly delineated jobs for our onsite vs. what Maye was doing. The hotel coordinator was the face on the ground (coordinating the photographer with us cutting the cake with the fireworks in the background starting as we cut the cake) and Maye was behind the scenes. It really went smoothly.

            I am go temporarily hijack this thread - sorry.

            I am emailed Maye twice about doing coordination - just day of - but haven't heard back from her. I know I read she's getting busy - but really, I just want to hire her! I only have her email from her website. Does anyone have any other email address for her? Did it take her awhile to get back to others?

              Maye is coordinating my day-of activities along with a few other things. A few times I have not heard back from her & then I forward the original email again & she gets right back to me & says she didn't get my original email. So, I would definitely try her again - your emails may get filtered to her spam folder. The email I have for her is: maye@mayecortinas.com

              it can take a little while to hear back from her...also since your wedding is not until dec. 2008 she is probably taking care of the weddings she has in the early spring right now...you should hear back from her soon...if not in a by next week i will shoot her an email.

                I can't believe she's so busy doing a great job for brides who have a wedding soon that she can't drop everything and email me who has over a year to plan. Jeez! She's rude. (please read a LOT of sarcasm into that one).

                Thanks girls - I'll just keep trying.
