Hi.. Not sure where you are going to get married in town, but the ruins of the Merced are sometimes rented out for parties. It is a magical location. There are several clubs that do weddings, 15th birthdays or anniversaries.
Edgar Liquidano is starting a reception club. His e-mail is above.
I heard he had an outstanding 15th birthday celebration for some 300 people last summer.. He does speak english.
Hope this helps... Bill
I was just in Antigua checking our places for our weddings... i checked out the following places:
Hotel Antigua--has a nice area for reception..great looking hotel. Right next door to an old church/ruins.
Hotel Villa Antigua--- great hotel.. nice conference rooms... but doesnt have the atmosphere of being in Antigua...
We decided to go with Santo Domingo because its an amazing place..the chapel is there..the garden..the ruins and the conference center is just a step above everything else we saw.
Let me know if you have any questions...as we are in the stages of planning our wedding there in Antigua....
So.... that's where you've been eholbik. Well.. congratulations on your upcoming wedding. You've chosen the right place.
I got married in Antigua at Posada de los Leones, it might be a little small though, but give them a call, we hired the whole place, it is fantastic there.
Hi! I am actually planning my wedding at SAnto Domingo as we speak! Any tips or advise you have for me while I plan? Did you have a catholic ceremony and did you have your reception ouside or inside?? Help!
It is a beautiful ruin within Antigua that they rent out for events, including weddings. Although Casa Santo Domingo in my estimation is a bargain for a high-end wedding, San Jose El Viejo should prove more economical because you can select your own caterer. It is almost as stunning as Casa Santo Domingo when illuminated at night with candles. Its advantage is that you and your guests will have the venue entirely to yourself.
I have actually seen that place a few times from the outside all lit up and it does look amazing!! I didn't even think of that place! Thanks
Just noticed your post that you're getting married at the Casa Santo Domingo. I'm a wedding photographer (I do about 30-40 a year and I do weddings all over the world)... I have to tell you that this hotel/wedding venue is the BEST wedding I've ever photographed in my whole life. The staff is amazing, the food is amazing, the scenery is amazing, the ruins are amazing.

I now tell anyone who will listen that this is the best place on earth to get married. I can't rave enough about it.
