    Smile need some help, please

    Hi All,
    I am putting this in the Wedding section as I know all you brides should be able to help. I am trying to plan a large private party in Aruba and I want to hire an event coordinator, in essence a wedding planner without the wedding!!
    This situation started by calling someone who had been written up on the bb with rave reviews. However, it has come to my attention that this photographer and event planning company is under a lot of scrutiny for improper practices (google name and you will find lots, usually a good practice to do).
    I reached out to photographer Angela Munzenhofer, who was so helpful and nice and also a forum member. She gave me the name of a planner but I am having such a hard time getting her to email or call me back. I know from this bb that many planners are not great at getting back to the customer L but I am a little “gun shy” due to above situation with the person I am not naming.
    SOOOOO, can any of you brides give me some names of wedding planners that you have used successfully. They need to be independent as I am not going to use a hotel/resort for this event.
    Many thanks!
    happiness is going to Aruba with your adult kids because they still want to come with their parents

    I am very happy to report that I just spoke with Arlette Oduber from Letz Aruba and she is going to help me. She sounds like a wonderful person and dedicated to her customers. She was recommended by Angela Munzenhofer and I think I am definitely in the right hands now. I should also say that Angela was most helpful as she doesn't know me but responded to an email and went out of her way to help. Kudos to her too!

    We used Arlette two years ago for our civil ceremony and she did a great job! A true professional! Good luck to you!

    Arlette does a great job. I worked with her through the Marriott for my wedding this June and she really knows what she is doing. She did our civil ceremony and was incharge of all the decorations for our beach ceremony. I couldn't have been happier with her. The ceremony setup was beautiful!
