Riviera Maya 2015: Independent Wedding Planner Needed At Resort ?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 
We're just getting started on our planning for an early 2015 wedding in Riviera Maya and have a few resorts that are at the top of our list. 
What was everyone's first step ? Contact the resort directly or talk to an independent wedding planner in the area ? 

I'm hoping that maybe an independent planner can help me with the contract since I've heard the resorts like to nickle and dime you for any type of customization and add fees for outside vendors. They might also be able to help out with details and communication since the resort planners can be pretty tied up with all the other weddings they're handling.

I'm a little overwhelmed sine I think we'll have close to 100 guests.

Looking forward to talking to everyone !

Hi IMchicago,

 

I would actually narrow down what resort you are considering first.  Some resorts do not allow outside coordinators.

 

If you want, tell me what resorts you are considering and I can go through the pros and cons of each or tell you how I would proceed.

Hi Tammy, 

We were thinking on the Grand Palladium Colonial Resort and Spa. I would like to use their chapel but also need to figure out if we can get legally married here and perform a " Catholic Light" ceremony in the chapel to make things easier. Also my fiance is not Catholic so we need to figure that out.

 

Another one on our list is Valentine Imperial , but they don't allow children which might be a problem.

 

Any suggestions advice you could offer would be much appreciated ! 

 

Thank you

Hi, 

I had no idea there was an expo. We live in Chicago but will be out of town on the 19th. Are local expos worth going to if I'm having a destination wedding ? 

It may give me some guidance on where to get a dress, I'm a little clueless on that part LOL. 

 

Thanks for letting me know of the expo I might try to look up their website and see if it has some good info !

I thought I'd check it out to at least get some deco ideas. Use 4 free ticket code: TKEB  from theknot.com!!
