Through my personal experience and research, however, I have found that destination wedding coordinators often fall into two categories. The ones belonging to the first of the two categories are located in your home country, which is advantageous in that there are no language barriers for you, they often have the same ideas and follow the same new trends as you, being of your same nationality, and you may even be able to pop in and talk to them over a cup of tea. On the downside, however, they are not in the location where you will be getting married, and therefore can only keep an eye on your wedding organisation from a distance, at least in the planning stage, and may not even know the various suppliers personally. They often also miss out on sourcing and getting to know newcomers to the wedding market sector in that particular location.
The alternative is to find a wedding coordinator in the location you have chosen to get married in, but in that case there may be a language or more markedly a culture barrier, as different nationalities really do have different ideas and customs in any circumstances, and you may have a problem explaining exactly what you are looking for, or even understanding what is available to you, right down to the tiniest detail. I often have to tell people that confetti means two completely different items in Italian and English: the word for those tiny paper petals etc thrown over the couple as they come out of church in the UK is the same word used in Italy for the sugar-coated almonds placed in wedding favours in Italy as a sign of health, wealth and fertility. This may be only a minor factor when organising your event, but it is eloquent in showing how easily wedding customs and traditions can be misunderstood.
