Wedding Coordinator - Low Cost

Recommended Posts

Hello Ladies,

 

My fiance and I are planning a January 2014 wedding in Cabo at the Sunset da Mona Lisa.  Based on my communication with the venue, it looks like we are required to have a wedding coordinator.  I've contacted a few WC's and their service fees are all $1500-2500.  We don't want an elaborate reception (more like a nice dinner with 20-25 people), so we really don't need a lot of help with wedding coordination.  I'm comfortable finding our own officiant, flowers, etc (since all of you are so great with your recommendations!).  Does anyone know of a lower cost WC?  Thanks :)

Hola! 

 

That is pricey!  I truly understand how it is to be on a budget, especially for a destination wedding. Check out these two sites  http://www.CaboBeachWeddings.com  and http://www.asunsetwedding.com They are sister companies and work together, they also have their own rental company which helps to bring down costs. Two wedding coordinating companies working as one can afford a to give you a lower coordination fee as oppose a smaller wedding coordinating company msnwink.gif

 

Hope that helps and congrats on your engagement!

Hola,

 

Wow that is a lot!  I can suggest visiting http://www.CaboBeachWeddings.com and http://asunsetwedding.com  They are sister companies! And the even have their own rental company which will help cut down on some costs.

 

Going with a wedding coordinating company that has merged is going to cost less as opposed to going with a smaller wedding coordinating company. 

 

Congrats on your engagement! 

 

Cheers,

Chrisitna

I'm using Illeana Reyes from Romantic Cabo Weddings, and she originally quoted me 2k for 50 guests, but went down down significantly when I negotiated with her. I imagine she'd charge 1k or less for such a small wedding (but that's just a guess). Shes been great so far. And yes, you need a WC for a wedding at SDML. Congrats! It's such a beautiful place!!!!! It's where I wanted to get married but it was out of my budget. Good luck!!

Hi There I was considering the Sunset Mona Lisa for my wedding I'm also looking at Cabo Del Sol.  I going to have 25 guests and got quoted $1200 for a coordination fee from Elizabeth Schoell at A Sunset Wedding.  I was quoted a heck of a lot more by others....

I just got married a couple of weeks ago in Cabos. It was at an amazing villa.... Villa Cielito in Chileno Bay. In the beginning I had decided to not use a WC. However, as the big day approached ..clearly I needed some help. Then i thought maybe I just needed a coordinator for the day & I'd deal w all the vendors myself. In the end, I am so glad  I used  Maye Cortinas as a full WC. Had ~25 people for my wedding and she gave me a great rate of $1200. She was awesome. She's a local and was absolutely great & patient about everything...especially when I kept changing things on her. Although we didn't have a large wedding...there were still a lot of details to work out. She's affordable and very helpful.
