If you’re going to Mexico, a lot of the resorts are all-inclusive and come with an on-site coordinator/planner. Most have customizable wedding packages so there are a lot of things already done for you~

You don’t really need anything more than that.

I only used a travel agent (Beach Bum Vacations) and they are free.  That in conjunction with the coordintaor at the resort was all I needed.  TBH the travel agent was a TOTAL lifesaver for me, totally DID NOT need a wedding planner at all~

Hope that helps!

Hey! I live in Canada and I used a travel agent who is a destination wedding planner. Because she specialized in these type of weddings I felt more confortable in her doing the organizing rather than me especially because she had to converse with people overseas and she knew the best way of going about it. I didnt have to pay her to do the wedding I just had to have over a number of people to book and if I got that then her services were free. The best part is that my guests didnt have to pay fo the whole trip upfront..they just had to pay $250 upfront to secure there spot and have to pay in full 60 days before we leave for the wedding 🙂

@MrsWheaton:  Depends on what youre looking for! if you want a resort wedding then you wont need one as they will handle everything. If you want something a little bit different then they can be very helpful. There are pros and cons to both kinds of weddings

Im getting married near playa del carmen so if you want to know any non-resort info send me a PM. The wedding planner im using is costing 1500 dollars (which is standard). I did a ton of research before booking her so i actually found my venue by myself but i feel a lot less stressed having her work out the details!
