WHEN IS A GOOD SEASON TO GET MARRIED IN OAXACA?

You can have a lovely wedding in Oaxaca any time of year. The most popular time to get married is between October and March. This is when we have the best weather: less chance of rain and the temperature is most comfortable.

DO YOU DO TRAVEL PLANNING FOR THE WEDDING PARTY AND ALL WEDDING GUESTS?

No, but we are happy to help you set up hotel room blocks. Guests are responsible for booking their hotel reservations within the hotel block and arranging their own transportation to and from Oaxaca.

C

ARE YOU BASED IN OAXACA?

Yes. The founders of ODW have lived in Oaxaca City since 2011. All staff are also based here.

DO YOU OFFER PRE-DESIGNED EVENT PACKAGES?

No two weddings are the same, so we do not offer pre-desigend packages. We tailor each wedding planning proposal to reflect the needs of each unique couple.

IF I PLAN MY OWN WEDDING, DO YOU DO “DAY OF” EVENT COORDINATION?

No, we don’t. We believe the secret to a successful wedding happens in the planning and the professional execution—full service from beginning to end!

CAN YOU PROVIDE REFERENCES?

Definitely! We have many couples who are willing to share their experiences with you.

DO YOU WORK ONLY IN OAXACA CITY?

We are most familiar with the venues and vendors the Oaxaca City area. However, we are open to planning weddings in other locations in the state of Oaxaca. Please reach out to us for a consultation.

There are many lovely venues not directly in Oaxaca City itself, for instance a mezcal distillery or ranch. We are happy to work outside of the city limits, but please note that this increases our fees (and the fees of most vendors) to cover extra transportation and labor time.

DO YOU ONLY WORK WITH CERTAIN VENDORS?

Part of what we offer our clients is a long history of working with vendors (mostly local, but also from other parts of the country). We will recommend tried-and-true vendors to you, but are also happy to work with new vendors that you may find through other means. At the end of the day, who you hire is your choice, but please know that with new vendors, we are unable to vouge for their service delivery.

DO YOU TAKE ANY COMISSIONS?

We do not take commissions from vendors. This ensures you get the best deal possible and that we are not biased in our suggestions for the best vendors for your event.

CAN I MAKE MODIFICATIONS TO MY EVENT AFTER I HAVE CONTRACTED THE SERVICES?

Yes, if it’s in a timely manner. With respect to ODW, you may add extra services up to a month before the wedding. With respect to vendors, each one will have a different policy outlined in their contract. Usually most vendors are happy to add additional services, but will not remove services you have already hired them for. The same is the case with number of guests.

IS IT EASY TO TRANSFER MONEY TO MEXICO?

Yes. The best option is to open an account on wise.com. Services like Venmo and Zelle do not work in Mexico.

C
E
IS IT POSSIBLE TO MAKE CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS?

Yes, you can make credit card payments to us (ODW), and to some other vendors, but it must be an in person payment (where the vendor physically swipes the card). The only vendors that can charge a credit card without physically seeing it are some hotels.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO GET MARRIED IN OAXACA CITY?

Cost can vary, but it is very difficult to pull off a wedding in Oaxaca City with less than 30,000 USD (even if your wedding is smaller). If your budget is less than this, we suggest you explore other options.
