Your wedding was in 2006...maybe she's more experienced now? Not sure but just sharing my 2 cents :) 

 

Hello!

I have suggested Maye to other Brides that wanted to get married in Cabo and they were very happy with her too!

Perhaps as CaliGirl415 says, now she is more experienced.

 

Happy planning and good luck to all of you!

Honestly, she had quite a nasty reaction when I called her to tell her I was going with someone else, which surprised me. I had told her when I first contacted her that I was looking at several WCs, and would be making a decision in a week, so it's not like she didn't know I was checking with several people. She accused the other WCs of giving me a lower price b/c she wasn't Mexican, and therefore not paying taxes, etc. Kind of ridiculous. It made me glad I didn't choose her. Of course this doesn't mean she isn't a good WC, but...just left a bad taste in my mouth.

I am currently using Yarai at Memories and she is amazing. I started off by working with Karla Casillas and it was an awful experience! I am somewhat local as my parents live here but I do not and I feel like I know a lot of Cabo. However- Yarai has gone above and beyond to make my wedding planning incredible! I am getting married May 2014! Check her out!

I recently returned from my Cabo wedding (will post a full review soon), and used Maye as my wedding planner. Unfortunately my experience was not positive, and based on my experience I can not recommend her to other brides. It seems that the experiences with her on this forum continue to be inconsistent (some great, some not so great), similar to how they were several years ago when there was more feedback on her. 

 

In short, I found her to be disorganized, lack attention to detail, and on a couple of occasions dishonest/ manipulative. I found her to be very quick to initially respond to emails, but her follow through was very poor. I found her to be very reactive, and not a proactive and planful with our wedding process. It is true that she is probably one of the least expensive planners in Cabo, but honestly after my experience, I would have paid not to use her at all. Given my experience with her attention to detail, I probably couldn't even recommend her for day of wedding supervision. 

 

On a positive note, she was hard working, nice and does seem to mean well. Additionally, the vendors that we did use from her were reliable. Lastly, she knew I was very unhappy on several occasions and did work with me on price because of this. 

 

Working with her was one of the most stressful parts of my wedding planning process. I plan to write glowing reviews about almost everyone else we worked with in Cabo, but unfortunately this completely missed the mark for me.

 

I will write a full review and provide further details/ examples, but if you have questions in the meantime, please feel free to reach out by private message.

Thank you for this feedback. I found I had a similar experience just in the short time I spoke to her when I was interviewing coordinators. This makes me very happy with my choice in Illeana, and so far she has been great.

 

I can't wait to read your review on your wedding! I'm going for my site visit in just 4 days!

Have fun in Cabo...I want to go back!!  I see you are also from LA, so that makes the travel & site visit so much easier (we went down twice while we were planning :)) I am hoping to find the time to write up my review over the upcoming holiday weekend, but since that won't be in time for your visit, below are some of the other vendors I would recommend. Feel free to PM me if you are still looking to finalize vendors and need additional input on anyone, otherwise, I will get around to posting a full report out soon.

 

Sorry to side track your post, but wanted to get you some additional input in time for your site visit!

 

- Suzanne Morel- Hair & Make up - Pricey but good work

- Ana & Jerome Photography- LOVED them.... and have loved the couple preview photos they sent me so far. Won't be able to post a full endorsement until I see the final product, which should hopefully soon. If my pictures are half as good as the entire experience has been with them so far, I'll be reporting back good news

- Ambar productions- lighting & furniture

- Arturo Ortiz- DJ

- Sergio Farias- Flowersandeventsloscabos.com- Flowers

- Cynthia Sosa- Hola Grand Faro on-site wedding planner (now Barcelo Grand Faro)- I think you already have your venue, but Cynthia was fabulous to work with

Hi Robyn349,

Can you tell me a little more about your wedding at barcelo grand faro. We have almost decided on there and was having a great and easy time communicating with Cynthia until we started talking about group rates. Any details would be greatly appreciated

 

Thanks

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
