How can we confirm your services for OUR Wedding?
- After our “non-strings” Consulting Call you will receive a Wedding Planning Service Proposal, once is approved; we move forward with our Agreement and Retainer for our services.
- Wedding Vendors will require a deposit to secure the date. Each location has its own policies. We can assist you to handle the payments and contracts. However, the vendor´s contracts will be available for you to review.
Do you require a deposit for your services?
- Once a wedding service is confirmed we require a Retainer specify in the Wedding Planning Proposal you got.
When is the balance due? What payment methods do you use?
- After Retainer is done, the remaining balance is due 1 month prior to your wedding date.
- Most Wedding Vendors will apply the same policy than us, to avoid being paid during the event. Can you imagine a photographer or us missing an important moment because are getting paid?
How much time would we need to reserve OUR wedding day in advance?
- We suggest starting a booking within 1 year in advance; because specific dates and best suppliers gests booked quickly. However, booking 6 months in advance is still a good timeframe.
What if we want to reserve on short notice?
- You should contact us at [email protected] we will do all in our hands to help you with a short notice event.
- There are different types of ceremonies. Our first suggestion would be to ask yourself, what type of Wedding Ceremony should you have? Mexico has the option for either a local judge for a Civil Wedding or Non-denominational Minister, Chaman for a Mayan Ceremony or a Priest for Catholic ceremonies, Rabbi for a Jewish knot-tie or a Sikh Offiante for a SouthAsian Ceremony.
Do we need to send any documentation prior to arrival?
- In case documentation is required in advance; we will let you know. This will be based on the type of ceremony selected.
What wedding couple typically for a destination wedding?
- Brides usually wear a beautiful white gown, while grooms usually prefer khakis and a white dress shirt. Most couples also prefer bare feet on the beach, of course.
