My fiance and I just got engaged and are thinking about having the wedding in Cartagena. If you're planning to do the same, I'd love to hear about the process - it's a bit overwhelming!

Hope to hear from you soon!

Hi guys! I am starting to plan a wedding in Cartagena as well. Do any of you know how much it is to have the reception at Sofitel? We are going to have about 50 people. Also, we will have guests from Colombia (mostly Bogota) and the US. Are there any suggestions on that front!?!? Definite do's or don'ts?

Thanks!
Christina

Congratulations. My best advice is hire a Wedding Planner. My wed is on Mar,2011 and I was so stress out. It was not fun anymore. So one of my girlfriend told me hire a WP. She told me the best in Cartagena was la Chiche http://carmenceciliacayon.com/ See her webpage. She is awesome!!! I met with her, her chofer pick me up, she took me to her house, etc. Everything was so good, nice and she had so many nice ideas. Everytime I have a question, or I think I have a problem she solve it or answer for me.
If you want more details email me at claragil2004@yahoo.com

Hello Margaux,

My fiance and I are planning to get married in Cartagena probably in March 2012. I came across your post and I had a few questions:

1.What exactly was included in the 175 per person. I know you listed this information, but mainly, I was wondering if this included music, decorations, etc.?
2. I got a crazy, high quote of like almost 500 dollars per person and this is WAY over our budget (we are expecting 40-50 people and have a budget of about 10,000 dollars). I wanted to know how was it working with La Chiche? I emailed her a few times but never heard from her again.

3. Did the Sofitel provide decorations, etc, or did you have to get that separately. If so, how much did you spend on decorations and music, if you don't mind me asking.

4. We received a budget of nearly 2200 dollars for photography and video and I noticed yours was about 1300. Who did you guys go with?

Sorry for bombarding you with all these questions, but we're supposed to fly out to Cartagena next month to meet with our wedding planner and I feel very overwhelmed with this prices!

Thanks,

Claudia

P.S. Here's my email if you would like to respond more privately: cmilena0610@gmail.com

Hola,
I am so happy to hear that many couples are getting or did get married in Cartagena!I am from Colombia and my fiance ,who is from here, love "La Ciudad Amurallada de Cartagena." So, we decided that we will get married in Cartagena in May 2012. So, I am wondering how long in advance should we choose & pay for the location of the reception? How much charge$ a wedding planer for his/her services? My sister used to live an hour away from Cartagena, but not anymore. So, we will definitely hire somebody to help us. Thank you!

Hi Mimi
I recommend you book everything as soon as possible, I wanted to get married in the church with air conditioning and went to cartagena 8 months in advance and the church was already booked for my wedding date. I got quotes from la chiche and she carges 10% of your total spend, yourwedding in cartagena.com charges 15%, my Wedding planner was Maria Angelica Cueter, she had a lower fee than the other two. Good Luck with your preparations

Hi, Andrea
We booked Iglesia Santo Domingo, it does not have AC but we love it!! We paid $1million pesos. I recommended you to book your church soon, because when we booked our church (a few weeks ago) it was already full until March 2012. Good Luck!
