Help!!

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any advice about choosing AI vs wedding coordinator? We plan about having about 100 guests oct14... AI sounds easiest, but I'm not sure now... I think I'm on overload at this point lol

Most resorts have a Wedding Coordinator built into to whatever wedding package you purchase and they help you with the planning, even at AI places. That's been my experience at least! Which resorts are you looking at?

I have been looking at Hacienda Encantada, I've contacted Edith and she has been very responsive so far. But I found Bahia in Cabo, which is not AI, and I LOVE it! I feel stuck now. I was thinking AI would be less expensive, but I'm not sure now.

Funny, my FI and I went through the same thing...in AI, your party basically pays for most of the booze and food at your wedding. Non AI (or European plans) you will end up paying more. We ultimately decided on the European plan b/c we didn't want to get married at a HUGE resort with a million people around, and we the AI plans at the smaller places were too expensive to think it was worth it, especially when we are planning to host a welcome dinner, bachelor/bachelorette party 2 nights before the wedding, and the wedding...so that's 3 nights we weren't planning on staying at the hotel to eat or drink. We also liked the idea of being close to DT Los Cabos, so we are planning to walk and hanging out there as well.

 

Have you looked at Bahia on oyster.com? They indicate that the photos online is MUCH nicer than in person, but it's great bang for your buck if you stay there. But maybe not for a wedding. The upgrades are not done throughout the entire hotel. I am actually getting married across the street at Casa Dorada and having Bahia as an option for guests who cannot afford to stay at CD.

 

IMO, AI is only worth it if your friends/family drink A LOT, b/c it brings the open bar price WAY down, or if the AI option is only a hundred dollars more a day, or less. I think you should just look at the resort and see if you want to get married there. That's the most important. And you will never be able to make everybody happy.
