Sanjeev and Natalia's Wedding
"It was a real pleasure having Daniela from Caribe Cordial plan our dream wedding in Cartagena. It was an amazing experience and we are very pleased we trusted her. We had an Indian wedding in Cartagena - something unique but from the start Daniela found the concept an exciting challenge and worked with us to bring our ideas to life. We spoke with a few planners at the start of our process when we were deciding on Cartagena as a destination (we live in the UK but my wife Natalia is Colombian). Daniela was great from the start giving us lots of detail in terms of options, different budgets, venue types etc. from the very first email which no other planner gave us. We were also reassured by the fixed fee Caribe Cordial charges compared to other planners that charge based on the total cost of the wedding.....We had a year to plan the wedding including a very productive trip to Cartagena where we visited all the venues she had in mind and met various vendors. The visit was very well organised and a great part of our planning process was done in those few days. The year spent planning was fun and she was always on top of things, always happy to accommodate our ideas as well as contributing her own and very patient when we were deciding or changing our minds about different options. I would also say that we always felt she was on our side and honest in terms of where she felt we could push different vendors for better deals, where we didnt need certain items , were there might be a more practical or economical option etc. and was always understanding of our budget. I think the service we got made the wedding much less stressful than if we had done it ourselves or in the UK but I think other couples also agree as at times she was very busy with other weddings in the run up to ours even though she was always on top of our requests"
diana and juan 's Wedding
"My husband and i couldn't imagine how hard it would have been to organize such an amazing wedding without the unbelievable services of Caribe cordial. everything was perfect, we didnt have to worried about anything, because there were somebody who took care of everything!!! thank you Juan Camilo and Daniela for everything, our dream finally came true! Cartagena it´s possibly the best spot to get married, so romantic, so much things to do and sights to see nothing to complain!"
Natalia and Anthony's Wedding
"Caribe Cordial saved our wedding day after a bad experience with another wedding-planner and for that reason we are incredibly thankful. Everything was perfect, they truly understood what we dreamed and made it a reality. They are honest, collaborative and reliable people, always trying to make you save money with the providers (very hard to find wedding planners not willing to take commissions in addition to their salaries), polite, patients... If we had to pass through all of this wedding planning craziness again, we wouldn’t consider any other option different than Caribe Cordial. We recommend them 100% THANK YOU GUYS!!!"
Ileana and Christian's Wedding
"What can I say??... A Lot. There is no words to describe the amazing work that Daniela, Juan Camilo and the rest of the crew of Caribe Cordial did to make our five days wedding affair unforgettable. We worked together with Daniela and Juan Camilo for almost a year before the wedding. Their organization and professionalism was perfection. At the beginning I was very nervous of how we can pull off a destination wedding in Cartagena living in New York. But without a doubt Caribe Cordial exceed my expectations during the whole process. Juan Camilo was available at all time and very easy to communicate. We discuss every single detail by Skype conference and email. Beside the wedding, Caribe Cordial took care of planning all the extracurricular activities. If you want to have the most fun, magical, unique and amazing wedding, you need to have Caribe Cordial as a coordinator. Thank You Juan Camilo for everything!!!!"
Natalia and George 's Wedding
"Caribe Cordial made my dream a reality. Planning a wedding can be very stressful not to add a destination wedding in 7 months. Daniela and her team made sure that each step to the process was so smooth with no worries. What I had envisioned she made to a reality. She knew exactly what my vision of my dream wedding was by just description. I truly cannot imagine using someone else. With all the events that happened before the wedding day, she made life easier. I did not stress one bit during the day. I never imagined I could be that calm, but knowing that Daniela had everything under control just made the day easier. All the vendors she recommended were better that I could have imagined. The food was fantastic, and the cake was so delicious. I could have not done it with out her and her team. I am so grateful that she was part of the whole wedding planning. Thank you for being there even when life got a bit crazy. Words cannot express how happy I am with you and your team and how much I appreciate everything you did for us."
Michelle and Julien's Wedding
"Dealing with Caribe Cordial in the organization of our wedding was the best decision we made when we strated to plan 1 year before the event. Michelle and I were even more concerned because we had to organyze our wedding from France which makes it harder on all aspects. But thanks to Daniela and her team we could realyze our dreamt wedding in Cartagena. The investment we did in their consulting made us gain a lot of time in finding the best places, the best suppliers and the right prices. On the top of that their professionalism and experience in event management was an amazing added value during the event as we did not have to worry about anything and could enjoy one of the most important day of our life 100%"
Nina and Jairo's Wedding
"I contacted few wedding planners over than a year ago, all them replied but Caribe Cordial was the only one who approached us in a friendly way. Juan Camilo and us chat over Skype and he gave us a brief of what to expect from them and three different packages that for our wedding sort of worked out to be a combination of all. We only have goods things to say about Juan Camilo and his team, he seemed to know what was best for our wedding and really reflect what for us was the best day of our lives. We arrived in Cartagena one week before the wedding and he organised meetings and tastes just so we knew what we will see on our wedding day"
STEFFI and CARLOS's Wedding
"Caribe Cordial as the Wedding Planners are truly the reasons why our wedding was remarkable. Juan Camilo, the coordinator, is a true master at his craft of wedding planning. His expertise and guidance really helped us plan a great wedding. It's difficult to plan a wedding yet alone a destination wedding in Cartagena, Colombia. We live in Miami, FL and the whole time he is easy to communicate and great at responding to emails or phone calls and is very good knowledgable at what makes a great wedding. We would have had a seriously hard time keeping things together without him. Even though he had other weddings to plan and organize we always felt like we had him all to ourselves. He's a really great person and truly cares about making it the best wedding possible. The vendors he recommended were great as well. The staff/servers were both friendly and attentive. They not only made sure the bride and groom were taken care of but were extremely thorough with all of our guests as well. Our wedding was absolutely perfect, we did not have to worry about anything, and I mean anything. I would recommend Caribe Cordial to anyone. We could not have been happier!!! Thank you Juan Camilo and Caribe Cordial."
Margarita and Jason's Wedding
"What can I say? Daniela, thank you, thank you! We had such a great time planning our wedding. We were able to make our dreams reality and have everything as we wanted it that day. Every guest had a blast and that was very important for us"
Angelica and Michael's Wedding
"We chose Caribe Cordial over two other wedding planners in Cartagena and it was the right decision! We started the planning process a year and a half before the wedding. During that time we kept in permanent contact with them through email and Skype and visited them once in Cartagena to meet vendors and arrange most of the details. Daniela was always creative, looking for the best providers and prices and willing to help us with all our requests. She understood our wedding concept and gave us really good suggestions. At the end, Daniela and Juan Camilo felt more like friends than people we contracted to plan our wedding. Although they have weddings almost every weekend, the planners at Caribe Cordial make you feel as though your wedding it is the most important event for them as well. They have great local contacts and although they have been in this business for years, they are always looking for new options. Their staff is well trained and professional and very dedicated. We enjoyed every minute of the wedding and did not worry about anything at all. We recommended Caribe Cordial to friends that were getting married on an island close to Cartagena and they too were impressed by the way that everything turned out. In short, Caribe Cordial provides professional, reliable, and creative wedding planning services. They are the sweetest!"
Jenny and Eduardo's Wedding
"We are a couple formed by a Spanish man and a Colombian woman who has been living for almost ten years out from Colombia. We live in Spain and we have always talked about that if we ever decided to get married, it would be in Colombia. Since we took this decision, the illusion we had was compared to the fear we had to organize a wedding so far, so finding a good organizer was an obligation, we talked with several of them and we surprised by the good reviews of Caribe Cordial, so we decided to call them and from the first minute of conversation we knew they would be good and our fears were gradually disappearing. Ask them to organize your wedding on the moon and they will take care of how to get it. Juan Camilo and Daniela specially, but Vanessa, Quique and all the team of Caribe Cordial made all our dreams come true. Endless Skype talks and months of preparations made by Caribe Cordial, made possible the most incredible, original and spectacular wedding we have ever been , our’s or any other’s, and this was widely recognized by guests with truly sincere enthusiasm. Recommend Caribe Cordial team is a must for anyone who had the wedding we had, everything, absolutely everything we wanted was possible. This team was not just asked to organize our wedding ,but my father`s birthday and a private party for an entire day with complimentary night on a private Caribbean beach where they had to carry everything from Cartagena. It was that kind of days you'd like to live over and over again, and we would still call Caribe Cordial for organize it. If you want to organize a wedding in Cartagena, you will not find other organizers as good as them, the worst decision would be to not choose them, you will find many organizers in Cartagena, sure very good, but Caribe Cordial is simply the best ."
Adriana and Alejandro's Wedding
"We highly recommend Caribe Cordial specially if you want to work with people that really care about your expectations, how you feel and how you want to feel the day of your wedding. I remember we contacted many wedding planners in Cartagena one year before the wedding and we were trying to choose the best one who really tried to accommodate with our budget and many of them said that we could not have a wedding in Cartagena with the budget we had, but Daniela and Juan Camilo were the exception. Living in Canada and preparing your wedding from far away is not something easy, but Caribe Cordial helped us make our dreams come true. They really know well the best vendors in the city and they give you lots of options and help with your ideas to make your special day memorable and unique. I will never forget that they always cared about how we felt every moment. When we arrived to Cartagena 5 days before the wedding we were all stressed and nervous organizing last minute details, and Caribe Cordial were also there to support us emotionally and they acted as our real friends the kind of ones you can really trust. The day of our wedding, the service was exceptional, the whole Caribe Cordial team was extremely helpful, and speaking for myself (the bride) I felt like a real princess in a fairy tale. Thanks to Caribe Cordial, we will never forget our wedding because it was indeed the best day of our lives!!"
Ross and Marcela 's Wedding
"Just got married in Cartagena and cannot recommend the picture perfect city for a wedding venue enough! As both my wife and I were living in Europe during the 12 months leading up to our big day it was imperative that we had competent Wedding Planners. Caribe Cordial really made the effort of planning a wedding from another continent manageable and with hindsight I doubt we would have managed without them. Caribe Cordial ensured that we had a one 'stop shop' managing all the different vendors on our behalf in the lead up to the event and also during the actual wedding day. No request was too big or too small, even after the wedding they have stayed in contact assisting us with our Marriage Certificate. Their friendly manner, years of professional experience, local contacts and genuine interest in making your wedding day special separates them from the local competition. Their work ethic is incredible and through their extensive experience they managed to ensure our wedding ran like clockwork. Our experience was magnificent and neither of us would change a thing on the day; therefore from first hand experience both my wife and I highly recommend Caribe Cordial to any engaged couples looking to get married in Cartagena. We are very grateful to Caribe Cordial for planning & managing the most important day of our lives. Gracias a Juan Camilo, Daniela y Vannesa por todo!"
Andrea and Jonathan's Wedding
"Caribe Cordial helped us immensely! They went above and beyond during our wedding, making sure that everything came out perfectly. They can recommend vendors who are the best Cartagena has to offer. Thank you Caribe Cordial for making our day so special!"
Maria Fernanda and Daniel's Wedding
"Being a bride-to-be represents lots of challenges. You have to think about a budget and then figure out how, when and where. I knew I wanted to get married in Cartagena, but I didn’t have a clue how to do it. At the beginning of my decision making process journey, I read all the reviews for every single wedding planner. I narrowed it down to only three of them. I inquired information for the first one (randomly chosen), and started filling out a spreadsheet with personal and wedding details that they provided. I was really overwhelmed, and I completely stopped for a couple of months. I needed to know the basics and figure out what I wanted first, and I was not ready for that just yet. One day I decided to wrap up the “spreadsheet”, and I sent it out. To my surprise, I received the rudest email ever from that wedding planner. I could not believe my eyes. Her response was: We will not be in Cartagena for that day (my tentative wedding day); therefore, we can’t coordinate your weeding. I was very upset, but at the same time I was glad I did not choose that company. They didn’t value me as a customer... So, I went ahead and sent an e-mail to Caribe Cordial, and it was the best decision ever! Caribe Cordial welcomed me like family. They walked me trough every detail and I felt really good and secure. Sandra helped me with preliminary details, wedding colors and general details. She has a great taste and she is a sweetheart. I changed my wedding date 3 times, and they did not have any problems. I worked with Juan Camilo at the end of the planning process, and he is defiantly a PRO for this business. He is into details and has GREAT ideas. I had a Polaroid picture station with costumes for my guests. He gave me tips and a great variety of choices. He knew the vendors well and was always targeting the best prices based on my budget. They are caring people. The day of my wedding my dress ripped and in a matter of seconds they were sawing it. They are prepared professionals that LOVE what they do. They are a great team and they deserve it. The day of my wedding was the best day of my life, and it was because of them. They made an exceptional work. Caribe Cordial succeeded my expectations. THAK YOU VERY MUCH to the entire team!!!! <3 Daniela, Cristina y Vanessa muchisimas gracias por todo! <3"

You attention to detail and professionalism took our wedding to a whole new level! Everybody was SO impress with the wedding! Thank you so much for giving us the most amazing day of our life! We will be forever grateful!"
Ingrid and Edward's Wedding
"The best, great group of professionals, fresh ideas, personalized service, fast delivery, awesome people!!!!"
Carlos and Lisette's Wedding
"We visited every wedding planner in Cartagena and we were definitely very happy with Caribe Cordial. We appreciate the tremendous amount of help, suggestions and great prices they got for us. We had a fantastic wedding and everything was perfect. We wanted the appropriate cultural balance between Spain, Colombia and USA and we felt that it couldn't have been better. We got that balance on the food, decoration and excellent music. We highly recommend them and we think they offer the BEST value for great service."
Norys and Luis's Wedding
"To hire Caribe Cordial was our best decision. They are very professional in their job, they have great taste, ideas and suggestions and they know very well all the Cartagena’s providers. They gave us the best advice for our wedding. They helped us a lot, not just with the wedding planning but also with our guests program in Cartagena, like “day trip in Rosario’s Island”, Cartagena’s chiva tour (traditional color buses), etc. They are also wonderful people, and all of them stayed with us until the end of the wedding at 6am. We lived in Spain so having a great planner that was helping us along the way with everything was just fantastic!!!"
Angelica and Antonio's Wedding
"We had the best advice from Caribe Coldial, they are the best coordinators! We loved the Santa Clara hotel. We had the BEST TIME and everything was perfect. thanks so much for everything!!"
Cartagena Wedding In September
"They are the best wedding planners in Cartagena. Camilo and Liliana are the best team to prepare your wedding and make the dream wedding."
Joseph and Monica's Wedding
"Kind, patient, organized, professional in every way. We highly recommend them. They helped us with the planning of all 3 events and with the logistics and coordination of the Castillo de San Felipe that are complex since we had many activities and over 170 guests. We were relax and happy and everything went perfect! They did a great job with the vendors to get great value, great quality and great service. They perfectly captured our style and ideas. Excellent job with the guests—they help us with everything!!! They help us distribute the welcome bags, helping them with any questions and any advice. We are very grateful to them for all their work. Certainly recommend them."
Katalina and Sam's Wedding
"Lili and Cami are incredible and work with your from start to finish. Please see my review from them from an earlier post under Caribe Cordial. I was relaxed the whole time during the big day because I knew everything was being taken care of, and they were working hard behind the scenes. I had the best time and just got to celebrate!"
Elkin and Paola's Wedding
"Estoy muy agradecido con Caribe Cordial y en especial con Juan Camilo Rodriguez que fue el encargado de todo el wedding plan de principio a fin. Camilo es supremamente profesional, con muy buenas ideas, y una vasta experiencia haciendo realidad el sueno de miles de parejas. Lo recomiendo 100%. Nuestra boda fue de pelicula. Todo salio a la perfeccion. Y por ello estoy muy agradecido. Camilo hizo de este proceso algo muy simple. Pues todo el plan fue hecho por internet, por correo electronico y por skype. Yo resido en los Estados Unidos y el tener una persona confiable, etica en el exterior es dificil de encontrar."
alejandra and Thierry's Wedding
"We are so grateful to Caribe Cordial! they did an amazing job, very professional, very dedicated. Thanks Lily, Camilo, Tatiana for everything! you are wonderful, very professional and just a fantastic team to work with!"
Andres & Jayson's Wedding
"Bodas Caribe Cordial was our wedding planners. The company is run by Juan Camilo and Daniela. Also, Vanessa is part of their team and helps them with everything they have going on. Both Juan Camilo and Daniela were great. And part of the reason our wedding weekend was so amazing is b/c of all the hard work they put into our wedding. They really do have great ideas and helped with negotiating better deals with vendors, etc. They know the business inside out and really know what they are doing. Both JC and Daniela are very approachable and b/c they are doing what they love to do, they were very passionate about helping plan our perfect day! The only reason why I am giving my wedding planners 4 stars is b/c I feel that I did not get the attention I should have gotten once I got to Cartagena. I did all the planning via online with JC and Daniela... however; once I got to Cartagena is was mainly Vanessa (their assistant) who was the most helpful and was with us the whole time. While I understand that my wedding was "small", and not to sound too "bridezilla" but it should have been the #1 priority of the week. Instead, they also were attending to other couples who were there visiting & planning future weddings. My advice and constructive criticism to Daniela & JC is not to forget that costumer service is beyond important ... and while the did have everything under control... it is a little stressful on the couple getting married to not see them in everything going on. If I had to do it all over again... I will still hire Bodas Caribe Cordial. They did an amazing job and everything was perfect... just don't forget to make sure you give your 150% to the wedding couple during that week... everyone else, can wait! :)"
Cartagena De Indias Wedding In January
"Caribe Cordial is a great team of wedding planners. They helped us to have the wedding of our dreams within our budget. They were always very responsive to ideas and requests. Our wedding was so lovely, much more beautiful that what we were expecting. Caribe cordial made sure every single thing were perfect in our wedding day. Thanks to Daniela, Juan Camilo, Vanesa and all the team."
Suzie and Andres's Wedding
"Cartagena is a beautiful place for a wedding, but it can be hard to break out of the Cartagena Wedding mould. Caribe Cordial were able to create an intimate and relaxed wedding for us and our guests. Their inside knowledge of Cartagena was invaluable, as we live in Bogota, and they found the perfect church and wedding reception venue which we never would have found ourselves. However it was on the day that Caribe Cordial were really at their best. They managed every detail of the day, every vendor, every delivery, even ensuring we all walked down the aisle at the right time and in the right order. It was so wonderful that we were able to relax and enjoy our day, because every little detail was taken care of."
leonel and Helena's Wedding
"We had Caribe Cordial coordinating our event and they did a fantastic job! we had a wonderful time and they gave us great advice on options, vendors, decoration, etc..we certainly recommend them. Please see our video in www.yourtube.com http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dSbZmjCIDQY&feature=related with a clip of our wedding. Some of the things they did are: meeting with us and the vendors during our visits to Cartagena to review every part of the plan, layout and options. They had wonderful ideas and worked really well with the vendors. We started planning a small wedding around 70 people, but we got carried away and got over 120 confirmations! about a month after we gave the deposit for the venue we decided to change it to accommodate more guests. Camilo helped us get the full deposit back in our first venue which is extremely hard to do in Cartagena. We had guests from other countries and they coordinated the logistics and pick up for everyone so they could feel welcome in Cartagena from the start. They were with us the week prior to the wedding to make sure we had anything we wanted and helped us with all the welcome events, lunch on the beach, chiva tour, etc..We had the rehearsal of ceremony and rehearsal with the vendors and we feel very comfortable with the plan. They did a great job with the logistics of the horse carriages that took us to our reception venue. Overall, we just can't tell all the details but we feel that we had a very professional group helping us have a great wedding!"
Tania and Graham's Wedding
"We used them for our pre-wedding activities in Cartagena. They took a while to reply to our messages but overall all the events worked out. There was one restaurant that we did not enjoy but it could have been avoided had we had the time to visit Cartagena previous to our event."
Maria Alexandra and Ricardo Antonio's Wedding
"Stellar service, fresh ideas and good organizational skills. Caribe Cordial is among the top 3 wedding planning companies in Cartagena, highly recommended to anyone interested on having an affordable/trustworthy service."
Anyela and Shane's Wedding
"Caribe Cordial is a GREAT TEAM of Wedding Planners. They help us to have the wedding of our dreams within our budget. They were always very responsive to ideas and requests. Our Wedding was so lovely, much more beautiful that we were expecting! Caribe Cordial made sure every single thing were perfect in our wedding day. Thanks to Daniela, Juan Camilo, Vanesa and all the team!!."
"We chose Caribe Cordial because of the strong recommendations on Wedding Mapper, their competitive rates, and their prompt response to our initial inquiry. Leading up to the wedding, Daniela and their staff were very nice and responsive to our questions and requests. She seemed to be good at negotiating rates with vendors, but wasn't great at helping us live within our budget. We had hoped for a wedding planner who would take care of any minor issues that emerged on the wedding day. However, Daniela and her team approached the bride with all of the problems. Instead of solving these problems, the bride had to come up with solutions. Daniela was our primary point of contact through the process, but on the wedding day it was a junior member of her team who accompanied us along the stops before after the wedding reception. The junior member stressed easily and was ill equipped to answer questions or problem solve. With her experience, we think Daniela would have taken charge of the situation more effectively. Throughout the wedding day, there were many missing pieces, including forgetting to schedule a time to toss the bouquet. The bride had to talk to Daniela about organize this."
Angela and Carlos's Wedding
""We can't say enough about how amazing Daniela and her entire team at Caribe Cordial have been throughout the entire wedding process. We started talking to Daniela about a year before our wedding as she was our main contact. She would always keep in touch with us and provide us with updates on various options we had for the wedding day as well as other pre-wedding events. I was especially grateful because even though my husband speaks spanish, I do not and Daniela made it extremely easy for me to communicate with her. We were planning the wedding from the United States and Caribe Cordial made it seem like we were right next door. We had the advantage of being able to take a trip down to Cartagena for planning purposes before the wedding month. Daniela welcomed us and made sure all our appointments were set and on time. The big day was a huge success - we really couldn't ask for anything more. We can't say thank you enough for all the hard work that Caribe Cordial put into making our wedding so special. We highly recommend them.....They are truly amazing! - Angela & Carlos""
Diana and Aaron 's Wedding
"We would highly recommend Caribe Cordial as a wedding planning company for couples planning their wedding abroad in Cartagena. We live in the US but Diana was Colombian and wanted a wedding in Cartagena. Originally, we tried to plan it from abroad but we had a tight timeframe and needed help. Once we started working with Caribe Cordial, we wish we had worked with them from the beginning. They were able to get better prices on services, hotels, etc. than we were finding and took care of all the details such that we didn't even make a trip to Cartagena prior to the wedding. We worked specifically with Liliana and Juan Camilo. Liliana speaks english so communication was not too much of an issue. On our wedding weekend, they took care of transportation to get our guests to the hotel, made sure we had our paperwork ready, and went over the final details. They guided us through the Catholic wedding ceremony and arranged a classy party at Casa Pombo. They spent a lot of time with us and made sure that things were to our liking. Liliana and Juan Camilo had great taste and had the details in place that made our event a night to remember. We came to trust them and their judgement. The lights, flowers, band, "hora loca", and food was memorable and of high quality. A couple of issues arose through the weekend (as they always do) and Juan Camilo and Liliana came up with quick solutions and were highly professional. It is very difficult to plan a "destination" wedding but Liliana and Juan Camilo made the experience easy, enjoyable and of high quality."
