    Hello, I got engaged and I am planning on getting married on November 16th, 2013. I don't have a venue yet but I am sure about a destination wedding in Cancun or Riviera Maya. I am planning a catholic wedding for 50 approx.

    I would love to hear your thoughts on wedding planners. Do you feel they are worth it? If yes, who would you recommend?

     

     

    Thanks for all your help!

    Karla

      in Hawaii, it's not uncommon to have a planner, however, it's not called a "planner" it's a coordinator. they help you do things that you can't whole being far away..

       

      my girl will help me with finding a place, getting flowers, cake, setting up, the day of the wedding & all that. but i found her because the company also does photography & is one of the best on the island!

       

       

      for places that are big DW, i'm sure they have the same thing down in the Carribbean!

      Hi Karla,

       

      I really think it depends on the type of wedding you are planning, and the location. If you're choosing an all inclusive resort, and having all of the wedding events onsite, I'm not so sure it's worth hiring an outside wedding planner. If you're hosting a rehearsal dinner offsite, wedding at a church offsite of the resort, and a reception somewhere else too, it may be worthwhile. 

       

      The resorts have dedicated wedding staff - both during the planning phases and onsite. They can generally provide you with options to help you plan the wedding of your dreams! 

       

      Good luck with the planning.

        i agree that if you do it all on a resort it might not be worth it. if you want to go to a church (therefore needing transportation and to find own vendors) off resort then it will make life a lot easier

          Hey Tiffanysblue,

           

          Congrats on your engagement and welcome to the forum.  As a wedding planner here in the Riviera Maya, I would suggest to you if you are set on having your wedding on Nov 16 2013, you need to find a location pretty fast.  As Nov is a busy month with weddings, especially if you are looking to have a catholic ceremony, dates will get booked up pretty quickly.

           

          Once you find the church/resort that offers catholic ceremony then you could then make a decision on having a coordinator or not, if you are thinking about having an off resort wedding you might consider a someone who knows the area and can get you some good deals.

           

          Hope this advice was helpful and feel free to ask us anything or email us at: weddingsinplayadelcarmen@gmail.com

           

          Happy planning!
