Hoping for Costa Rican wedding in the fall...any tips?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Just got engaged a week ago and now trying to pull off a destination wedding some time in Nov this year. We are focusing on Costa Rica but are open to other possibilities.

I'm def looking for info from others who have/are going to have their wedding in Costa Rica-- who to trust and what's the best option for a 20-30 guest ceremony.

Hi! I guess it depends on your budget and what type of wedding youre looking for. I know a few girls around here are planning wedding in Costa Rica. My fiance and I vacationed there last August so I can't really give you a wedding review but I can tell you about the specific resort we stayed at (only one in CR I've been to). It's called Paradisus Playa Conchal and is an AMAZING resort in the north west. If you want a really nice beach and lots of ocean life - probably not the best spot. I heard the East cost is much better for that.The resort however was beautiful, couldn't complain about the food or service. With that said, it was a bit pricey which is the ONLY reason we're not getting married there - because I didn't want to ask our guests to pay that much. For a week, including flights it cost us right at $5,000. It IS all inclusive so food and drinks were included in that price. There's lots of activities to do too. We did the kayak/snorkel trip (free) and the sunset cruise (free but book the day you get there! it fills up fast) and there were many other things we did not do. Anyway, here are some pictures if you're interested (including ones of the Liberian airport) Costa Rica - August 2008 pictures by Katie_T85 - Photobucket
Most of the staff spoke decent English, the housekeeping staff- not so much but they try really hard to be pleasant and speak slow spanish if you indicate you know a few phrases. I never felt unsafe or saw anything bad while we were there. This is getting long but feel free to message me if it's something you might be interested in and have any questions!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
