Wedding Planner Yes Or No?

Recommended Posts

Ok I am so overwhelmed and it has only been a few days.  This site is awesome.. 

 

My FI and I are going to do site visits of some resorts we would like to see in person.  Originally in February but changing it to next month we have the time to take from work.

 

If you had a wedding planner I would love to hear your experience.  Will they setup the site visits, meet us while in Mexico?  Maybe offer suggestions of resorts based on criteria we are looking at??

 

Can you recommend your planning company?

 

Lastly if you did not have one do you wish you did?

 

 

Looking at Dreams Tulum, HRH MR, Finest Playa Mujers (new resort), Azul Beach or Azul Fives.. But just read the beach is not that private at Beach so maybe Sensotori.. last one Paradisus la Esmalda...

 

Now you see why we are overwhelmed.  LOL

I don't think you need a separate wedding planner. If you work with a TA that specializes in destination weddings and work with them to narrow down your options and pin point what's truly important to create the wedding of your dreams I think you will find the stress subside. Choosing your resort is the hardest part, but once you are there- the planning can easily be done between your resort coordinator and using this board!

 

It gets easier... Promise!

Also, in addition to choosing a helpful TA, once you decide on the resort you will be mainly planning your wedding with the wedding coordinator.  Keep in mind that planning Destination WEdding is different than a hometown wedding.  You will not get responses from your wedding coordinator as quickly as  you would prob prefer...this doesn't mean that they won't be getting things done..it just means that they have other weddings that they are dealing with that are happening right now. We have been slowly planning our wedding but I haven't found that a wedding planner is needed.  You will prob be able gage that once you start communicating with your WC and actually once you decide on your resort too.

Update:  So I paid for Destination Weddings.com and so far I have a terrific person that I am dealing with.  Answers my emails right away.  Is setting up all my site visits.  Set up my transportation etc.  So far so good and I feel like a big weight lifted off of me.

    • 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.
