Antigua Guatemala As Wedding Destination

Antigua Guatemala as Wedding Destination

Almost a year ago I said that La Antigua Guatemala is the Wedding Capital of Guatemala. The term Wedding Destination Capital describes better La Antigua Guatemala, a top destination for couples, locals and foreigners, getting married in one of the churches.

This is what I said last year on November 24th:

La Antigua Guatemala is the most often used backdrop in Guatemala for… you name it. Anything from films, concerts, paintings, photos, festivals, religious rituals, and why not, weddings too. Actually, La Antigua Guatemala is used often as the backdrop for weddings not only of Guatemalans, but for many foreigners as well.

    Thank you for posting this. Antigua is a spectacular place to be married. My husband and I married here in April of 2008 and I just planned a friend’s wedding here last week, including an excursion to the lake, cooking classes and a fantastic fishing trip. If you would like help planning a destination wedding here, please feel free to reach out to me.

      Hello,
      I live in Austin, Tx. and my daughter is a teacher in Honduras. She is getting married this nov. and has chosen Antigua, Guatemala as her location. Any info. that you can provide would be so appreciated. I seem to be having trouble getting info. Right now, I have talked to panza verde and Hotel Posada del Angel. There we need to come up with florist, caterer, photographer etc. We expect 40-50 people. Thank You!

      • Hi Kathy and hi Karen!
        I would be happy to help you with planning but it seems like it would make sense to take the conversation to email. To your question, Kathy, I have excellent florists, caterers and photographers that I have worked with. And, to your question, Karen, the fishing was on the Pacific coast of Guatemala, about 1 hour from Antigua. My name, listed above, should link to my email address, or you can email me directly at laura.manies@gmail.com.

      Hi, Laura! I read your post and I’m now requesting your help. My sister in-law wants to get married in Antigua. We’re all trying to help but are not really sure how, or where to start. Can you give us any suggestions pls?

  • Karen

    I am planning a destination wedding to antigua for November 2010. Any recommendations for great day trips besides the volcano and coffee tours? Was the fishing on the lake in Panajachel?

    • Hi Karen,

      I would be happy to help you with planning and it would probably be easiest to correspond via email. Karen, the fishing was on the Pacific coast of Guatemala, about 1 hour from Antigua. My name, listed above, should link to my email address, or you can email me directly at laura.manies@gmail.com.

    • Laura

      Karen,
      There are a number of great day trips you could do from Antigua. Lake Atitlan is probably one of the best, however Mixco Viejo (a ruin) is very interesting and less visited.

      There are a couple different volcanoes you can climb. Pacaya is the easier but you can also climb Acatenango in a day.

      The fishing trip was on the Pacific Coast, not at the lake.
