I would absolutely recommend Tatiana Taron. She knows everyone in the business and will sincerely work with your budget. She is hard working and we just loved how she was able to handle all the emergencies.
Her email is lauta72
Our wedding was amazing and all of our guests that came from all over the world were awed!
Good luck,
Margarita

Hi. I highly recommend Itala from mi boda en Cartagena. She is extremely detailed oriented. She works with your budget and makes your dream wedding come true. She also has the best vendors and she gives you many choices. She charged us 15% of the total cost of our wedding. You won't be disappointed! She not only is an AMAZING wedding planner, she is also a wonderful person.

Hi Karen!

I am planning on getting married January 2016. I took my time and contacted a good number of planners from this website. Just so you know... They all work differently.

They either charge you a percentage of your total wedding cost. Typically 10-15%.
Others average $2,500 USD - $4,000 USD flat fee.

I actually just returned from my first Wedding planning trip yesterday. I selected Caribe cordial which works on a Flat fee. Which was more comfortable for me.

I also felt a connection with the Wedding planner the times we spoke before we met which I felt was very important in making my final decision! Feel free to email me with additional questions.

Hi,
I got married May 2012 and we hired Catalina Angulo (Eleganza). We love our wedding! Catalina and her team helped us to plan an amazing wedding in Casa Pombo and the events prior to our wedding including paseo en chiva and a island tour. She charged us a flat fee and worked with our budget! Good luck and have fun :)

Thank you ladies for this helpful information !

@Margarita where was your reception? Can you share some pictures? I will send an email to Tatiana.

@basalde I saw your wedding pictures they are really beautiful. Itala did a great job! Was that hotel expensive? Thank you.

@zlorac Congratulations on your wedding! Thank you so much for that info I will contact you in the upcoming months to see how your planning is coming along. Good luck!

@Mimi Casa Pombo is my favorite house! Can you give an estimate of how much you paid to rent it out?Do you have pictures?

I think the cost of hiring wedding planners is quite high. But they provide awesome services. After hiring a planner you don’t need to be stressed out for the wedding party arrangements. They arrange everything on their own so that you can enjoy all your wedding rituals. You know my planner helped me to book one of the finest San Diego Wedding venues at https://eventup.com/venues/san-diego-ca/. All thanks to him!!

Hi,

I recommend going with someone that charges a flat fee. Do not go with the ones that charge a percentage. It all makes sense- they are going to want to make it as expensive as possible so they get paid a better fee. I am getting married in two months and I've been working with Team Bride. I love them and they have been so helpful. We have a built a great relationship and they are willing to negotiate and work with your budget.

@MIMI I am getting married in Casa Pombo in December 2015. I would appreciate if you can share some pictures with us. I am a little worried about the space and how can organize the tables and music. I have 80 guests , so I don't know if I should change the place. I agree with Karen the house is so beautiful.

Karen I paid 17.800.000 Colombian pesos last month which is now 6654.20 dollars. The dollar is so strong now, as you now.
