How many Costa Rica brides are out there?

Recommended Posts

Did anyone getting married in Costa Rica purchase wedding insurance?  I can't seem to find an insurance company that will cover weddings in Costa Rica.  Thanks!

Hola lovely Costa Rican brides! I am getting married in Playa Grande, just north across the estuary from Tamarindo, at the Rip Jack Inn on December 3, 2011. We rented a few houses nearby for friends and family, and we are staying for a week before the wedding in Playa Grande.

 

I was wondering if anyone who was married in the Tamarindo area has any band recommendations for the ceremony and reception? I would love to book a local reggae band, bur really any band that will be fun for both our friends and older family members would be great!

 

Thanks so much, and happy planning. :)

 

Lindsay.

    Hi there, a Canadian national, Donnie Walsh, lives in that area. He has a blues band that plays out in that area fairly often. I know you could get a band from San Jose to make the drive, but you would have to put them up for the night. Kingo Lovers are a good roots reggae band, they have opened for Alpha Blondie, Steel Pulse, and others. I know, because I produced the shows. Un Rojo are also good. Good luck.....

I'm very interested in planning a similar wedding in Costa Rica. I'm just worried that it will cost a ton. How much would you say you spent?

 

Thanks so much!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
