All-Inclusive Resort Wc Vs Wedding Planner

Recommended Posts

Hi all! I'm starting to plan my wedding and we're considering the Grand Velas in Puerto Vallarta. The property looks amazing and the wedding coordinator that I've worked with so far has been fairly responsive. One of the things that I'm wondering about is whether it would be worth it to hire a third-party wedding planner to work alongside the WC coordinator at the resort. Has anyone ever done this?

 

I have a couple reasons for this, but the main one being that I want to be able to customize my wedding with details and small touches that I'm not sure the resort could provide. I also feel like having a wedding planner is having someone "on my side", e.g. working towards my vision of my wedding vs working for the resort.

 

Is this a crazy idea?

Hello B2b2015

 

This very normal in our are the Riviera Maya, we get it a lot where we have couples choosing to get our service plus still have the wedding planner at the hotel.  

 

Happy Planning

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
