The $26,360.00 Wedding Coordinator...WTH?!!

Recommended Posts

Wow that definitely sounds steep! 26K might be your final total cost but it really should include everything- NO additional hidden costs. I would definitely look around for someone else- or like someone else suggested- depending on where you chose to have the wedding a WC might be provided.

Uh, I'd just like to point out that the original post in this thread was from almost two years ago, and the member has since been banned. :)

Hey Jess!!! I've been around. I keep up with the Playa Fiesta thread in order to help out the new brides there. I can't believe your wedding is almost here! Just one more month to go. I'll definitely be here to see your pics and hear all about it. :)

Like the others, I have to add my two cents -- and much praise -- for Dazzling Details. Understandably different couples have different expectations for the cost of destination weddings, and while I think the original post estimate is extreme (and I do not think that was DD anyway), I think DD is worth every penny, even if that means more pennies than most. Their professionalism alone is invaluable. I've read of WC horror stories on this forum, where brides don't hear from their WCs for 2-3 weeks... and even with the insane schedule that DD keeps, I have never waited more than 24 hours for a response (which includes the 7 month email and in-person correspondence that we had without a contract in place). So for the bride who does not have the time (or energy!) to plan every detail that goes into a wedding, but who still wants a cohesive and elegant look, DD takes care of everything so that you can relax and enjoy the day. To me, you can't really put a price on that!!

    • 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.
