Hello Past and Present Brides!
I am currently in the early stages of planning a destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas for 2016. The wedding size will range from 40-60 guests. I am feeling slightly overwhelmed with the process and have decided to look into wedding planners. I never thought I would be the type of person to need a wedding planner since I am typically well organized and like planning events however; working full time and trying to set key milestones is becoming a challenge.
Brides that used or are using a wedding planner: What are you thoughts on benefits vs. costs? Are you getting what you expected? What is the typically cost and payment structure for a wedding planner? How did you decide on who to work with? Are they getting you better prices on wedding costs?
Brides that have decided against it: What are your thoughts on benefits vs. costs? Are you wishing you had one during particular parts in the planning? If so, what? Have you had any instances in negotiating where you think a wedding planner could have gotten you better deals or vendors?
I am interested in hearing from everyone especially Cabo brides!
