    We are planning on getting married next month in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. We are staying at the hotel "Si Como No". Unfortunately, because the date we want to get married falls under what they consider (season or peak) time we can't have the wedding at the hotel.

    I need to hire a wedding planner to find us a location near the hotel, and arrange for all the plans. My tour company recommended we use "Tropical Occasions" as our wedding planner. Has anyone heard of them or used them? Someone else recommended "Oasis Weddings".

    Any help will be appreciated.

      I have a bride who is getting married in Manuel Antonio and she is using Tropical Occasions and works directly with Karen Ogden. Karen and I have emailed back and forth several times and she is very knowledgeable and helpful to me so I am sure with my bride she is just amazing.

      The website is A Beautiful Destination Wedding in Costa Rica ~ Orchestrating Details into Exceptional Events

      Good luck and hope that helps!

          I've heard great things about Tropical occasions. I'm getting married in Manuel Antonio in Feb. but have done the planning by myself. Everyone I've contacted had great things to say about them- so good luck!

            I don't have advice on wedding planner - but I am excited for you getting married in Manuel Antonio - it is sooo beautiful there. We had wanted to get married there, but decided it would be too difficult for our grandparents to handle traveling in CR.
            Good luck with your wedding plans!

              I am in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica planning my own wedding. Could you or anyone else give me some contacts, especially for a cake decorator, photographer, furniture rental place?

                The villa we are staying at recommended Tropical Occasions. We are not using them because we decided to plan the entire wedding ourselves.


                chwevers — I can help you with a few of the vendors. We are having our cake made by Mariposa Pastry, she has been great to deal with. Here is a link to her Facebook page http://www.facebook....130279440355534 and here is her e-mail chelsea.brandau@gmail.com.

                For a photographer, we are using lifetime digital imaging, here is a link to the website, http://www.weddings.co.cr

                And for rentals and flowers we are using Eventos Boadicea, here is a link to their Facebook page http://www.facebook....ea/128504043112. They have some amazing stuff ... we are going with the benches for the ceremony, absolutely love them. Here is a link to their website as well (in Spanish) http://www.eventosboadicea.com


                Good luck and happy planning!!
