I am considering getting married at the Secrets Maroma Beach Resort in Mexico next year.
I dont know whether i should hire an extrenal Wedding Planner in Mexico to help cordinate the whole affair. Any suggestions?
They have a planner in site but i havent heard great reviews about the on-site planners.
I am currently in contact with Valerie.
Are any of you Maroma Beach brides using an extrnal oplanner? if so who?
Any past Maroma beach brides please help!

@SoontobeBrantley: i would look at best destination weddings website and find the secrets thread to find lots of brides specific to that hotel. http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com its what im using for my sandos playacar wedding to get the ins and outs of everything!
ive heard great things about the hotel though if it helps!!
depending on their outside vendor policy you might want to find an outside vendor for hair/makeup and maybe photography but the BDW website will help with that too
normally i would say for resort weddings you dont need an external wedding planner unless youre doing events offsite. im using kristee from fresa weddings who is chargign me 1500 dollars. have also heard of yasmin de la mora who i think charges around 2000. most wedding co-ordinators wont charge less that that so depends on your finances and if you think would be worth it

We got married at Secrets Wild Orchid in Jamaica and their wedding team was fabulous. Granted we had a very small wedding so there wasn’t a crazy amount of details and planning involved for us. They were super easy to work with and replied to my emails in a timely manner – usually with 24 hours…I have had a few friends/family stay at Maroma and they have loved it there – I cant imagine anything less from the wedding team there. Best of luck to you!!

I got married at Secrets Maroma. We used the on site wedding coordinator. IMO they(and myself) planned the best wedding I could have ever imagined. I think it will depend on you as a person. How demanding will you be, how patient are you, what you expectations are, etc. I actually was rarely stressed with the planning when it came to the resort. I mostly stresses about my guests rsvping, etc.
The coordinators are slow to respond, but they know exactly what they are doing and they do a great job.
