Our Top FAQ: What Exactly Does a Wedding Planner Do?

Q: What exactly does a wedding planner do? 

A: We make sure every person, vendor, flower, item, is at the right place at the right moment. We are the middlemen.  We worry about vendors setting up, centerpieces arriving on time, directing guests, and setting up everything so you don’t have to.

We always begin by getting to know you and understanding your unique values and aesthetic, whether you know just what you want or you still need inspiration. From there, we create detailed design plans, budgets, VIP photo and song lists, create timelines and act as negotiators on your behalf with venues and vendors. We manage countless meetings and tend all the logistics, paperwork and details. Our goal is for you to experience an exquisite and stress-free wedding, filled with lifelong memories.

We see the bigger picture.

When planning a wedding, it is so easy to become overwhelmed with the tiny details, that sometimes the bigger picture can get overlooked.  “OMG, I was so focused on the decorations, I forgot to order the cake!”  We are here to help you take a step back while we focus on the details AS WELL AS the bigger picture.

We are your risk mitigators. 

Every couple should be able to relax and enjoy their wedding day, and especially be able to enjoy one another.  It’s much harder to do that when you have a million people running up to you with questions and mini-disasters when all you want to do is soak up the happiness and enjoy yourselves.  Our job is to handle the questions and mini-disasters for you and make sure you have as many happy moments as possible.

We have easy access to the best vendors in the region.

You may think, “why would I hire a wedding planner to contact this vendor when I can just do it myself?”  The answer is simple.  Vendors need referrals (just like anyone else in the service industry), and some are even willing to offer you a discount for those referrals.  With the money you save on the discounted photography package or floral arrangements, or even just the time saved in calling around, comparing prices and checking availability, hiring a wedding consultant practically pays for itself!

We keep your best interests in mind.

Did the rainy weather ruin your beautiful outdoor setting?  We already had a plan to arrange it indoors. Did a bridesmaid’s hem come loose? We pin it into place. Did you forget to buy a knife and server set? We’ve got your back.

Finally, it’s important to remember that English is not the first language here in Mexico. Even in resort towns like Cabo and San Jose Del Cabo (the Los Cabos Corridor) where many resort and vendor staff speak English, there are times when having an ally who knows them all well and can negotiate on your behalf in Spanish can save costly mistakes, especially if there are last-minute changes.
