Venue Selection

When it comes to your ceremony, there are many options to choose from. Some prefer a simple symbolic ceremony, while others choose to have religious and/or legal ceremonies.

Not Only Service, Value Too

As you probably know (or are realizing), planning a wedding requires a great deal of time, coordination, organization, and communication. Destination weddings, in particular, require additional resources and planning to ensure a great outcome and positive, memorable experiences.

Some of the most important qualities in a wedding planner/coordinator are organization, communication, and responsiveness. These are not only qualities we possess, but things we live by. We guarantee our clients a very organized process, clear and concise communication, and quick response times to questions and/or concerns you might have. We know this will ultimately be an added value to you.

Our Approach to Wedding Planning & Coordination

Because no two weddings are identical, we approach each one with an open mind and evaluate the requirements you have of us in order to custom tailor a package that's right for your wedding.

Typically, after speaking with our brides and grooms and determining their specific needs, we establish a base coordination fee. Our base coordination fee is fixed and includes all of our standard wedding services, listed below. Out of scope services that require additional time and coordination are handled on a case-by-case basis. You can rest assured, however, that we will do everything we can to work within your budget.

Base Coordination Fee

Our base coordination fee ranges from $2,800 USD to $5,000+ USD, depending on several factors — such as the wedding date, total number of guests, number of wedding events (welcome party, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, etc.), and whether or not we'll be assisting your guests with planning activities and/or coordinating accommodations.

Our base fee includes planning and coordination of the following:

Once we evaluate your specific needs and establish our coordination fee, we require a 50% deposit in order to get started and the remainder two weeks prior to your wedding date. We accept payments in the form of credit card (+fee), cash, check, and PayPal.

À la Carte Services

As an added convenience for you, we offer several à la carte services in addition to what's included in our base coordination package. We'll be happy to work with you on whatever you need — if we can't do it, we'll find someone who will!

Prices for à la carte services are determined on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us for more information.


Playa Bliss Weddings in Sayulita and San Pancho, MexicoGreat wedding coordination service start to finish!

Playa Bliss was excellent to work with from start to finish! They were entirely dedicated in making our wedding events a success and they certainly were! Through endless emails and skype communication they made me feel comfortable in planning a destination wedding from afar. They recommended excellent vendors and were able to be the sole communicator with each vendor. I am happy with all of the services they recommended! They were organized, thorough, hardworking and genuine in making my wedding dreams a reality! Thanks Playa Bliss for making our day more special than I had ever imagined!!

Playa Bliss Weddings in Sayulita and San Pancho, MexicoGreat Service! Stress Free Wedding Day!!

We decided to have our wedding in Sayulita after visiting several times. We came across Playa Bliss through the recommendation of a local restaurant owner. We loved their energy right away and decided to hire them as our coordinators. Katy and Nicole were very thorough and organized throughout the planning process. They have relationships with so many vendors and it was nice to have countless options when it came to food, location, music and extras. Planning a wedding in another country can seem like a daunting task because you lack the ability to be hands on but these girls make it easy. You can expect a detailed spreadsheet with timelines and payment balances that make you comfortable knowing you are not missing anything. The day of the wedding everything was setup just the way we wanted. The girls were very prepared and super comfortable with the flow of a wedding day. I didn't read reviews on the other companies and didn't even bother to consider one but I couldn't be happier with Playa Bliss.

Playa Bliss Weddings in Sayulita and San Pancho, MexicoWedding of Our Dreams

The staff at Playa Bliss Weddings has all the best vendors on their side, waiting and ready to create the wedding of your dreams. Our expectations we're well above exceeded thanks to the organized gals at Playa Bliss. There wasn't one thing forgotten the day of the wedding! They used their expertise to also plan a weekend full of great events, each one of them unique and amazing. We decided San Pancho was the better location for what we wanted: quiet beach with beautiful villas all walking distance from each other. Honestly, I don't see how any other wedding planner could top what they did! Simply amazing. Thanks Katy and Nicole!

Playa Bliss Weddings in Sayulita and San Pancho, MexicoSayulita Stole Our Hearts! Thank you, Playa Bliss!

My husband and I chose to get married in Sayulita, even though we had never visited or even heard of this dreamy little pueblo until stumbling across a few photos online. (Our parents thought we were half-crazy for booking a venue site unseen, but we were 100% excited.) Luckily, we connected some dots through a mutual friend (see Molly's recommendation below) and got the critical recommendation for Katy and Nicole. I have to admit that my husband and I are both "planners" who speak a moderate amount of Spanish, so before chatting with them on the phone, we thought mmmmmmaybe just mmmaybe we could get by without using a planner. Thank goodness Playa Bliss came into our lives and helped us avoid that mistake! Katy and Nicole reflect the charming, loving and laid-back style of Sayulita. They were helpful and knowledgeable without being pushy; they were flexible and open-minded, while still being honest and keeping us on track. They are detailed professionals who are calm yet very confident. They also know how to expertly blend American and Mexican cultures and styles, because they have the benefit of living in both. When planning a 5-day wedding event for 100 people from around the world in a tiny town over New Year's Eve, all of this experience and insight proves invaluable. We simply couldn't have done it without them! From their details about booking houses ("this house is on a steep hill, so you probably won't want your 90-year-old grandfather to stay there"); to tasting reception food for us (how are you supposed to do that from Chicago?); to negotiating with our vendors (did you know that many of them require cash to be transferred into their Mexican bank accounts? good luck doing that from the States!); to arranging morning yoga classes, cigar rollers, hair, makeup, flowers, the best mariachi band in the world, and a donkey that stepped in as a bridesmaid; buying shot glasses at the market so we didn't have to carry them in our suitcase; to tracking down highly-specialized DJ equipment in Puerto Vallarta; to making extra beer/wine runs during our events......everything was seamlessly and beautifully managed by the ladies. The best part of our wedding was that we got to spend time - lots of time - with each and every guest that had traveled thousands of miles to be with us. My husband and I felt like guests are our own wedding, seriously! So much excellent planning and communication had happened beforehand, that we arrived and stepped into a true vacation that turned out to be the BEST WEEK EVER >>> this coming from a gal who had rain on her wedding day, and yet it STILL surpassed by expectations a hundred times over :) I HIGHLY recommend Playa Bliss, and we just loved working with Katy and Nicole - truly wonderful women who allowed two lovebirds and all of our closest friends and family to discover one of the world's best kept secrets in Sayulita. THANK YOU!

Playa Bliss Weddings in Sayulita and San Pancho, MexicoFantastic Wedding Planners!

Deciding to gather all of our loved ones in Sayulita to celebrate our wedding was the best decision we ever made and deciding to hire Playa Bliss Weddings to help us plan and execute our vision was critical in making this the best experience of our lives! Katy and Nicole are absolutely wonderful at what they do and working with them was delightful. We simply couldn't be happier with the quality of their work. Their attention to detail, expertise, and the laid back ease with which they work made the wedding planning process enjoyable and seamless. There was honestly not one snafu and the high level of communication and professionalism allowed us to relax throughout the entire planning process. In the days leading up to the wedding, knowing that they were on top of every detail, we were fully able to enjoy being with our loved ones in beautiful Sayulita. We are beyond thankful that we found Katy and Nicole and can't recommend them highly enough. They are simply amazing!!!!!

Playa Bliss Weddings in Sayulita and San Pancho, MexicoCreated a 7 Star Unique Wedding at a Low Cost

Katy and Nicole were incredible. We did not want a cookie cutter wedding and we had a lot of requests that previously hadn't been done before in Sayulita or the area. We expected some of them could not be delivered but like a miracle this team got it done - everything. - an ice luge in hot Mexico (this was a hit by the way!) - a donkey processional from the ceremony to reception with our nephews on the donkey and wedding party coming down - all white fireworks display - 10 piece mariachi band wearing the colors of our wedding - a churros stand that had the cutest signage - signs for our nieces and nephews - a white vintage car for pics These were just a few of the above and beyond things that Katy and Nicole made happen. Our guests who are tough customers (most are New Yorkers who have been to their share of destination weddings) unanimously said it was the most fun and most beautiful wedding they had ever been to.

Playa Bliss Weddings in Sayulita and San Pancho, MexicoKaty & Nicole: The Dream Team

Katy and Nicole were such an incredible asset in achieving our dream wedding. From the very beginning stages, they went above and beyond their calls of duty by helping some of our family members and friends find housing in Sayulita and answering hundreds of questions patiently. We had a few unique requests (a donkey to lead the processional, a marimba band for the ceremony) that we weren't sure were going to come to fruition, but Katy and Nicole made it all happen for us. Working with them was practically effortless- we fired emails back and forth constantly and there was no language-barrier to hold any of us back. The fact that they were down there and could knock on vendors doors for answers was invaluable and I'm so glad we chose them over a planner from the States or a since I can imagine it would have otherwise been a nightmare getting things done and ensuring everything went smoothly. We flew down to Sayulita to meet them in person and get a bunch of errands and planning done a couple months before our big day. They drove us all around Puerto Vallarta in search of the perfect photo booth props, fabrics to make custom pillows, and materials for our huppa...all in 106' heat with smiles on their faces! Our rehearsal dinner was held at Don Pedro's restaurant and Katy and Nicole set up a bonfire on the beach following the dinner. They did such a beautiful job creating a magical beach party to welcome our guests- it looked like a scene from a movie. On our wedding day, we arrived to Playa de los Muertos for our ceremony and the set-up was just as we'd imagined (they hand-crafted our turquoise fabric-wrapped huppa!) and after the ceremony our adorable donkey was waiting to lead the procession up to the Palapa and we were serenaded by incredible Mariachi players that they had found for us. Up at the Palapa for our reception, I had to take a few minutes to take it all in - all of the little details we had agonized over were perfectly in place and I was overwhelmed with happiness. The reception went off without a hitch and flowed seamlessly between the events of the night. Our guests were in awe of how incredible the wedding was and everyone stated that it was hands-down the best wedding they had ever attended. We've also been asked to get married every year so they can experience this again! We are so grateful and appreciative of the amazing work and effort Katy and Nicole put into our wedding, and without hesitation we would recommend them to anyone considering a wedding in the Sayulita area...they are the best!!!

Playa Bliss Weddings in Sayulita and San Pancho, MexicoBest Day Ever!

My experience in working with Katy and Nicole was phenomenal. Our families thought we were nuts when trying to plan our wedding in Mexico from Colorado. Katy and Nichole were always available, kind, and creative. Everything they recommended to us was perfect. From the welcome party, paddle board trip, rehearsal dinner, wedding flowers, food, bridesmaids luncheon, wedding cake, to the band it was absolutely the best. As the bride, I felt calm and loved that I was able to kick back on the beach and enjoy my time with all of the friends and family that came. We had 140 guests to our wedding and I have heard over and over that it was the best wedding they have ever been too. Playa Bliss weddings was unique in settings and designs. Katy directed me to maracas mexico that were a huge it and also a company that makes custom paper wedding flags. Not only were our decorations beautiful, but the beach and view from Brisa Mar Palapa were unreal. Katy and Nichole were very organized and ensured that all of our deposits and money transactions were going to the right places. These ladies are super fun, friendly, and worked very hard to make sure we had the best day/week of our lives. I highly recommend them to help you get started on your wedding day adventures.

Alex | Sayulita, Mexico | Rating: 5 out of 5

Playa Bliss Weddings in Sayulita and San Pancho, MexicoBest decision we ever made was hiring Katy and Nicole!

The best thing about Katie and Nicole is their eye for style; planning a Sayulita wedding from California required us to cede some design aesthetics to our wedding planners that we would have had more control over with a local wedding. We loved all the choices they made on our behalf - of course, they consulted with us to the extent possible via Skype/email etc., but there were some things we had to leave up to them and they really came through. Katy and Nicole are also extremely flexible and easy to work with; my wife and I are extremely busy and they always accommodated our schedules; all our emails received a prompt response; we laughed a lot while working together. Another thing Katy and Nicole came delivered on was putting us in contact with vendors (caterers, restaurants, etc.) that met or exceeded our expectations. They listened to our needs, asked questions, and then made recommendations based on our conversations. We went with their suggestions and were pleased with the results. I have many more positive things to say about Katy and Nicole but will not take up more space here. Feel free to email me at markballer@yahoo.com if you have any questions about our wedding or our outstanding wedding planners!

Playa Bliss Weddings in Sayulita and San Pancho, MexicoA Perfect Wedding Week

Katy and Nicole are absolutely amazing at what they do. Our wedding went perfectly without one hiccup or having to scamble to get anything done last minute. We had 140 guests come to Sayulita for our wedding and Katy and Nicole coordinated everything flawlessly for a perfect wedding experience. They provided us options, every one of which were probably great and the ones we chose were exactly what we envisioned for a big couple of days. Many of our family and friends said it was the best wedding they have ever attended, from start to finish. Katy and Nicole took a very systematic approach to getting things done for our wedding. Over time, we simply went down a checklist of gettings things done and ONE MONTH before the wedding we were left with nothing more to do but relax and stroll on in to Sayulita and have a great time. They were always available to speak and they did everything they said they would do. Something that made me even more comfortable was that Katy recently got married herself in Sayulita so she was able to pull from her own wedding expierence as well as her planning. Everything was completely seemless and I would strongly recommend Play Bliss Weddings to anyone looking for a wedding planner.

Playa Bliss Weddings in Sayulita and San Pancho, MexicoFabulous team! Wedding of my dreams!!

My husband and I got engaged in San Pancho and immediately knew we wanted to plan our wedding there. Katy and Nicole from Playa Bliss Weddings came highly recommended to us and after meeting them we knew exactly why: professional service, fun attitudes, and creative minds! They were there for me through every step of planning a wedding from afar. They were just an email or Skype call away and always responded in a timely manner. When our families joined us for a "planning" trip to San Pancho, they navigated the often stressful situations that come with the territory gracefully. The week of the wedding included 40 guests and 3 big events. My wedding planners were on top of everything and our guests had a fabulous time. Everything went pretty much according to the plan and we had the time of our lives--thanks to Katy and Nicole!

If you want to feel confident that everything will go perfectly on the biggest day of your life then put Katy and Nicole from Playa Bliss Weddings in charge! We had our wedding in San Pancho without ever even visiting that town before and never did I feel stressed or unsure of it turning out exactly how I wanted it to be. Katy and Nicole are 100% organized, professional, friendly and full of great ideas. What a great feeling it is to have a team like them around you on your wedding day to keep you at ease and make things happen, almost as if it was magic! They knew exactly what to do and what needed to happen every step of the way and just took care of it, before I ever even had to ask. This must be what it feels like to be a Queen :) I highly recommend Playa Bliss Weddings!

Playa Bliss Weddings in Sayulita and San Pancho, MexicoBest Day Ever!

Planning a wedding is stressful - at least that's what all my friends told me when I decided to get married in San Pancho, Mexico and avoid the easier all-inclusive route. It's true that there is a lot to do - many details and decisions, currency & payments challenges, language is at times a barrier etc. but I avoided all of that by booking Playa Bliss Weddings to coordinate my favourite day (so far!). They expertly managed a massive to do list by breaking it down into small steps and decisions along the way so I never felt overwhelmed. Skype, email and document sharing meant that when I had a late night "oh my gosh I forgot the..." moment, I could send it their way knowing it would be taken care of. They do not work with sub-par vendors and that was evident in every quality detail from our cake to our handcrafted arch, right though to our photo booth. Our wedding was amazing, it reflected who we are as a couple and most importantly we were calmly able to enjoy every moment. Thank you Playa Bliss Weddings!

Playa Bliss Weddings in Sayulita and San Pancho, MexicoThe wedding went perfect.

We had a small wedding in San Pancho Mexico near Sayulita and hired Playa Bliss to help us with it. Our wedding was so small (under 30 guests) that we almost did not hire a wedding planner... but we're sure glad we did! And we're also glad we decided to go with Playa Bliss Weddings. There are a lot things you just can't organize if you are not in Mexico during the planning process. If you live outside Mexico like we do and you are planning a destination wedding, I strongly encourage you to hire Playa Bliss to help you. Almost all of the stress was lifted once we hired them as they took over the burden of organizing our wedding. We told them what we wanted, they supplied us with choices, and then they booked everything we needed. Simple, easy, and our wedding was perfect. What more can you ask for from a wedding planner? Playa Bliss also knows the owners of San Pancho Rentals, which we highly recommend using if any of your guests wish to stay in San Pancho (just a few minutes from Sayulita). Between these two businesses, you can easily plan your dream destination wedding all from your computer or phone. You really can't go wrong, we're so glad we decided to get married in San Pancho and hiring Katy and Nichole from Playa Bliss was an even better decision.

Playa Bliss Weddings in Sayulita and San Pancho, MexicoA different point of view

I am in my sixties and have never been to a destination wedding. Never could understand the concept, justify the travel or cost. I just didn't get it. Well I guess you are never too old to learn. Between Katy, Nichole and Justin I now have an unbelievable memory that will last me the rest of my life. From the time we landed in Mexico, till the time we left (six days later) I didn't have to worry about anything. No worries regarding menu, catering, transportation, florist, pictures, housing, rehearsal dinner, locations, wedding ceremony, reception, preparation or clean up. It was absolutely the easiest week of my life. I got to become the beach bum I never thought I wanted to be, enjoying the Sayulita lifestyle, wining, dining, strolling the beach and many shops. No responsibility, no deadlines, no quotas, no time tables just fun and sun. The main reasons my life became so easy - KATY, NICHOLE & JUSTIN. (The Playa Bliss Team) They worked their tails off so the rest of us didn't have to lift a finger. Didn't really seem fair, but, I've never had the opportunity to be pampered like that, and for all the work the "Terrific Trio" had to do, they remained as nice and pleasant as you could ever imagine, efficiency without stress, they truly are "super heroes." Today, months later, when I see others that attended my son's Sayulita wedding trip, we go over and over the memories we brought back with us. The smiles and laughs are proof of the wonderful experience we all lived. The enthusiasm and sparkle returns as we relive the best time of our lives. Finally, if you are considering the experience of a lifetime, a memory treasure chest you will carry forever, a "Destination Wedding" in Sayulita, Mexico, let PLAYA BLISS WEDDINGS make your dreams come true.

Playa Bliss Weddings in Sayulita and San Pancho, MexicoBest Decision I ever made!

With the exception of accepting the proposal and choosing Sayulita as our wedding destination, hiring Playa Bliss Weddings was the best decision we ever made! Planning a destination wedding seems impossible at the beginning but Katy, Justin, and Nicole made our dream a reality. We could have NEVER pulled it off without their expert guidance, support, and hard work and I found myself saying out loud "Thank God for Katy and Nicole" throughout the planning process. In the beginning we had endless questions and they had endless patience. They went above and beyond, even spending time to personally speak to any of our guests that had questions or concerns about traveling to Mexico, choosing accommodations, transportation and activities. If you have it in your budget, I would also highly recommend hiring them to design a website for your guests. Justin did an amazing job on the website! We even had a chance to visit Sayulita and meet our vendors prior to the wedding (I highly recommend doing this) and Katy, Justin and Nicole treated us like family during our stay. Every decision was made easier with their help. They have endless resources and a wonderful and accommodating network of vendors to help you plan your unique destination wedding. They helped us pick the perfect villa for our trip and the perfect rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception site. They were readily available by phone during our entire stay, even arranging last minute activities for us. The wedding day was MAGICAL. All of the vendors arrived on time and did an amazing job. We did not have to worry about anything the day of and neither did any of my family or guests. Everything was executed PERFECTLY. I was in awe of how BEAUTIFUL everything looked from the ceremony to the reception. And when I saw the flowers done by FLORA AMOR I was truly overwhelmed. If you choose PLAYA BLISS WEDDINGS you will not only have the most unique, FUN and memorable wedding any of your guests have ever experienced, you will have made friends for life. You will fall in love with Sayulita and find yourself wishing you could pack up your belongings and move to this wonderful place with these wonderful people. We cannot wait to go back and relive this magical paradise. THANK YOU Katy, Justin, and Nicole for this experience. We are forever grateful and can't wait to see you again!

I give Playa Bliss 10 Stars, because 5 just isn't enough! ********** As the MOB from Missouri, I am so GRATEFUL to have found Playa Bliss. I am so impressed with Katy and Nichole, in my opinion they are "worth their weight in gold"! They amazed us with their skillful ability to coordinate a long distance wedding. From our initial contact, all throughout our week-long stay, at the rehearsal dinner and of course, the MOST BEAUTIFUL WEDDING and fantastically fun reception, they were superior! Playa Bliss has state-of-the art technology to communicate with you and everyone else, Skype, email, phone, text. Whatever method you prefer. For me, being able to communicate with ease in a timely manor was monumental. With Katy and Nichole, NO PROBLEMS. (BTW Katy's hubby is a supreme Techy) They are always quick to respond, professional and wholeheartedly involved with every aspect of your wedding. Just a few of the extra things Playa Bliss helped us with to make our trip even better: Recommendation for the ideal villa for the wedding party to stay, it was fabulous. Coordinating taxi service to and from the airport, with a stop for groceries. Calling doctor Moy's office, stuff happens. Providing a short list of creature comfort items that are essential and/or hard to find in Sayulita, very helpful. Showing us the best golf cart rental business in town, after our visit to Dr. Moy, much appreciated. Translating and negotiating the fine details with our vendors. When I think about Playa Bliss/Katy and Nichole and our wonderful wedding, there just aren't enough words of praise for them. But I'll try, knowledgeable, honest, creative, sincere, energetic, buoyant, masters of their craft, thorough, charming, resourceful, first-rate and just all-around good people! If you chose Sayulita for your destination wedding, now you're wondering how to make it happen , PLAYA BLISS!!
