  1. I got married in April in Reserva Conchal; it's the condos that are linked to the Paradisus. We stayed at Reserva Conchal for 1/2 of the trip and Paradisus for the other 1/2. The food and service at teh Paradisus is not even worth it. It was almost as though we were on a different planet and I felt like they were not accomodating. One of the couples that attended our wedding did enjoy their stay at the Paradisus but that's only b/c they had all access VIP cards. We purchased a suite from them and b/c we didn't have a VIP pass they didn't feel like it was necessary to be nice to us. We as

  3. Sorry for the late reply. My husband did a write up on the wedding and it was featured on several sites. http://akilbennett.net/blog/2010/09/our-wedding-in-costa-rica.html
  4. I am back from my wedding-moon in Costa Rica and have a lot to say! I cannot tell you how thankful I am to have experienced such a beautiful wedding. It was more than I could have asked for. Wedding Planner: Aimee Monihan of Tropical Occasions was instrumental in helping me for almost 10 months plan my wedding. I am a person that had a million ideas that I wanted to incorporate and she was helpful in helping me narrow down my options. She made suggestions to help keep in budget and she didn't say no too many times; when she did, she offered an alternate option. In December

I ordered these and use them to send out with my invitations. They are actually very tiny. Imagine getting maracas that are small enough for a baby to hold. They're not going to make much noise or anything. In fact, it's been suggested to use them as a kids craft project. If you want them for a tiny something, use them. Otherwise, I would recommend ordering the other ones that were mentoined. Hope
  7. Thanks everyone for the kind words. You guys are hilarious! Regarding the registry..... People normally purchase gifts on the day of the event or the day before. What will likely happen is b/c the registery takes 24 hours to update, you will end up w/ a lot of the same popular gift. Or if you did a Target, often times the things that are online are no longer in the store, which is annoying. I remember going to a wedding last year and I went to Macy's to look for the gift that I wanted to purchase. I went to 4 diff Macy locations and no one had the gift. I couldn't find it so I gave u
  8. You guys are going to laugh at this. Well not really. It's not funny but I can't do anything but laugh when my wedding is exactly 44 days away. I love that my wedding planner is calling to check in on me. I am thankful that we decided to spend the money on a wedding planner. She reminds me that I need to be firm and keep up with my to do list. Here's the story: I sent out a mass email to EVERYONE we invited that's 44 familis to Costa Rica. This email was sent out at the 100 day mark for the wedding. Everyone rec'd their invitations in the mail in September. People knew about the wedding

  11. I'm getting married in April at Reserve Conchal. My guests are complaining about the fee for the transport to and from the airport. $90/PP each way. If anyone has been to this resort or is getting married in the area, how are your guests getting to and from the airport and what is the cost. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Michele- I'm so happy your MIL booked! Any other key players that need to book but haven't yet? I'm having my BD shoot tomorrow after work I can't wait. I bought all these things (well..not that much) and t

Do a search of the threads here... I know there are a couple really useful spreadsheet checklists that you might be able to use. It might at least save you the trouble of having to type it all out yourself! I think sometimes people assume that since they've booked their tickets and mentioned it to someone, you will know they are coming. I directly asked all of my guests to email a copy of their itinerary to me with
