  1. Thanks girls! Quote: Originally Posted by OchoRioBride82409 Congrats! and thank you for your honesty regarding your wedding.

I have a ton of question I would like to ask you, but I'm new to the site and not sure how to navigate a private message. Please respond if it's okay to send you a personal e-mail. I would be happy to answer any questions you have...you can email me at JLLEWIS119@gmail.com.

  5. Congratulations on your new business, I wish you all the best! I thought you were the sweetest person offering your assistance way back when I was having a crisis over our passport STDs. I ended up skipping the STDs, but I really appreciated you genuinely wanting to help me. Good luck!

Sorry, I don't remember the name, stop by. Keep in mind that any place you decide will be willing to negotiate price. Be ready to walk away. I love Lomas del Volcan for a mid-range. It is quiet and away from the road. Pay in cash and skip taxes. Haggle, haggle. Thanks for all the recommendations...I will definitely check them all out! The Vagabondo Hotel is a great deal! We weren't planning on getting a hotel this cheap in this area, but it will allow us to do a lot more and the hotel itself looks pretty nice. Now we can splurge on luxury in another town. Thanks so much! Here is the link for the Vagabondo Hotel and Pizzeria near Arenal for those budget travelers...Vagabondo - Arenal Volcano Costa Rica Pizza and inexpensive lodging
  7. Ask.CR- Can you suggest the best moderately priced hotels in Monteverde and Arenal? Unfortunately, we have to sacrifice some luxury, in order to enjoy CR longer. Thanks!
  8. Ask.Costarica- I just wanted to thank you for all of the advice, just seeing your answers to other girl's questions has helped a lot with our planning! Your knowledge of every town amazes me, I don't even know my own state that well (Florida), let alone my country!
  9. Ask.CostaRica - I know the green season begins in May. I don't mind short periods of rain as long as it is dry enough to enjoy the outdoors for a good part of the day, so would you advise against going to CR in May or June?? Are there certain areas to avoid during the green season? We would like to rent a car, but I am worried about encountering washed out roads during those months. Thanks!

We absolutely loved it and totally recommend it to anyone! Let me know if you have any other questions. Pura Vida! Sorry to butt in on this thread, but we have been researching CR for a late HM in May. La Mansion Inn looks great! I would love to hear more! We will only have a week there, so we are looking for somewhere that lets us see a couple sides of costa rica without too much traveling...especially wildlife in the forest and the beaches. How was the beach that was in walking distance? Were there places to snorkel in the area? How did you get to and from the airport? Were there a lot options for places to eat in the area? Any info would be great...thanks!
  11. I was in a similiar situation, where my stepdad had been a part of my life forever and I wasn't very close with my dad. Since my dad suprisingly decided to fly to Jamaica no questions asked, I just couldn't leave him out. So, I had my real dad walk me down the hill to the start of the aisle where my stepdad was waiting. My dad kissed my cheek and handed me off, and walk around the back of the seats to sit down. My stepdad walked me down the aisle and gave me away with my mom and dad sitting in the front row. The officiant didn't even ask "who gives this bride"...so that worked out well too (I think it may be a Jamaica thing not to ask..not sure) This worked out perfectly and I think it really made everyone happy. Good Luck!!

I got it from JoAnns, and I believe the color was called wine. I can't remember what the brand was, but they had all different widths. Good luck!

  16. Quote: Originally Posted by nscheatham I like the real touch flowers. Too bad they are not in my color. Who made these? I would love to get some made for my wedding. A close friend of my family made these, she is a florist but doesn't typically work with silks. I will ask her if she wants any more wedding business and post her info if she does.

  19. Yikes, I am sorry for how your friend has treated you. He will realize one day what a jerk he is, but it probably won't be before driving everyone out of his life. Weddings tend to reveal who your true friends are!!! Try not to get hung up on it, enjoy your planning!
  20. I got married in Jamaica off a cruise ship...the ship arrived at 9:30AM, our photographers met our group of 35 at the port at 10AM to catch the shuttles for a 15 minute ride to the beach, our beach ceremony was 11AM (but I think it started earlier), then we did family pictures on the beach and went to a restaurant right near the port at 12:30ish then the shuttles took our guests back to the boat at about 2:45PM and we went with the photogs to a beach near the port for a quick TTD session and were back on the boat by 4PM. You may want to leave a little more time for pics after the ceremony depending on the size of your group. Our day went by sooooo fast!
  21. Hi all, We are planning a late HM and are considering the DR. I have seen some mixed review on the waters in DR and was wondering if anyone had personal experience with snorkeling or diving in the DR? How good is it, and where is the best spot? Thanks, Jamie
