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.

    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to. 
    • Hello Everyone! Thank you for sharing your experience about Tom Moks. We have read it very careful before we booked. But at the end of the day we were very happy with his service. I consider myself as a difficult customer but this time everything went just smooth. We had our wedding in Sayulita, close to Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco. He came on time, he stayed with us late night.  After all we had to wait like 3weeks to receive the pictures, but we LOVED them. He sent us more pictures that he promises in the contract, and in 85% they were perfect.  The other 15% we asked him to edit once more, and he did it, without hesitation. This is his official Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tom_moks_photography/  Personally I would buy his service again, but the decision is always yours. E.
