After being engaged and deciding to do a destination wedding in Playa del Carmen, we were stuck on how to go about planning our wedding since we live in Texas. I researched some wedding planning sites but did not feel comfortable trusting just anyone. Then something special happened that reassured us about our decision to commit to a destination wedding.
Roxanna was introduced to us remotely by my sister who had known her from work in the States. My now husband and I called her and we discussed basic things and asked her opinion on some things that worried us about being so far away from the planning. I remember hanging up with her and feeling 100% confident with the destination wedding and with choosing her as our wedding planner.
There were many things we really liked about Roxanna. First off my sister knew and trusted her. Secondly, she lived in Playa del Carmen and lastly she had her own wedding in Playa! I knew that along with her professional help she had first-hand experience as a bride and she would be able to incorporate her personal experience in making our wedding great.
After she was hired the planning began immediately. We started with a questionnaire pertaining to what we wanted for our wedding. We gave her our vision and she made it come true! She made sure we stayed in budget. She would introduce multiple options to us to find us the best fit for what we were looking for. We made several changes along the way but she was always open-minded to what we wanted and she worked with us patiently throughout the whole process.
Our favorite thing about Roxanna is that she always kept us on track, she didn’t rush us but she did create urgency when we needed it. Given that my husband and I are procrastinators this was a big plus for us.
After all the planning, we arrived to Playa del Carmen a few days before the wedding and she took us out to see the venue, our church and to do our cake tasting before the big day. She was even kind enough to pick us up and drop us off at our hotel. The day of our wedding came and she kept everything under control. I can sincerely say that throughout our wedding day and throughout our planning I never felt overly stressed or frustrated. A few things changed the day of our wedding because we were outdoors and it rained, but Roxanna had everything under control and she moved the reception indoors which turned out great! We still have guest telling us that it was perfect and that was thanks to Roxanna! I can’t promise that your day will be exactly as planned but I can tell you that Roxanna will make sure to be ready with a plan B should anything out of your control come up.
Roxanna is professional, helpful and was always available to us. We could always call, text, and e-mail if we needed anything. She was amazing at responding immediately even if she didn’t have the answer right away. Roxanna was the biggest blessing to us! Our wedding was more amazing than I could have imagined. I still smile from ear to ear because of how happy we were with the whole experience. You will not make a mistake by choosing Roxanna as your planner, and I say that will full confidence!
Happy wedding planning!
