Not Sure Where To Start, Please Help

Recommended Posts

We are having our wedding in Huatulco Mexico in January.  The resort's wedding coordinator does not speak the best of English and I find when I email her I can only email one question at a time or else she does not fully answer them.   She is not giving me any direction of where to start my planning, or what I need to plan.  Can anyone give me suggestion of things I need to confirm with her or question about?  I did today find out about my flowers but I am so overwhelmed with all of this I don't even know where to go from here. I did not expect this type of experience when planning a destination wedding, I thought the wedding coordinators would be more helpful.

Thank you

I would start by looking at the packages provided by the resort (if any). By looking over those you should be able to get an idea of what is and isn't offered. From there, you need to decide what kind of feel/theme you want for your wedding and see how you can incorporate that into what the resort offers.


You can definitely search around on this website and I'm sure you will get lots of ideas! Good luck!

Most resorts don't start planning anything with the bride until 3 months before the actual wedding. This could be why you're getting not the greatest responses.  I also agree with the poster above - if you chose a specific package, there should just be stuff you need to finalize.


As stressful as it is planning from a distance (and with someone who doesn't speak English as a first language), from everything I've seen on this board, EVERYTHING always comes together in the end. I don't think you should worry too much...easier said than done, I know :)

I agree with @@kellymiller


Do you have all the packages offered by your resort and the extras price list? I would start there -- read thru them all, see what packages intrigue you or if you can go a'la carte (take a basic package and add on what you want), see what you can afford and/or want to spend.  Start thinking about your theme, what you want as your vision, your favors, etc.


While most resorts don't start planning until closer to the date, with a good set of information from the resort you can basically have it all planned out yourself beforehand.  Then when you have contact with your WC you can iron out the details.


Do you have all those package and price sheets? if not, that would be my first start - either you or your TA need to contact them to get a copy of all your options!


Good luck!

1. Envision what you would like for your wedding in a high level, don't get into details yet, because this is what makes it overwhelming.

2. Get a timeline of your "must do" like resort and packages for your guests.

3. Decor, food and cake and plenty of details can be worked later as you have a clear idea of who is going and who is not.

4. If you have not sent save the dates, I would suggest to go ahead

I used to panic because I wanted to know how all was going to happened and also with so many details that I could not take care at once.

We are here to help, these boards are terrific!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
