- Wedding: April 2015
Good morning Bees! I have a bit of a tricky question that I’m hoping some of you can assist me with. I am having a destination wedding and my fiancee and I are trying to decide whether we want to hire a wedding coordinator. The wedding will be held in Rio de Janeiro and while my Fiance speaks Spanish, neither of us speak Portuguese and I want everything to go as smoothly as possible. We are getting married May of 2014 and will send out the invitations later this week to give folks enough time to purchase their plane tickets as it can be pretty pricey.
I have been in contact with a wedding planner who is friends with our photographer and thus far she seems pretty awesome and price seems reasonable I think ($1100USD).
My questions are:
For a destination wedding, what is to be expected of the wedding planner?
Do I need to have a list of things I need her help with or will she already know?
What are the normal duties of a wedding planner/coordinator?
