    You will be very happy with Paradisus, good ting is that they have backup plans in case of rain. The only back up plan I have seen at OccGP is a balcony near the reception (not too private). Paradisus has a Gazebo, an events center or even tent equipment.
    We know the coordinator very well, I am writing an email telling to look out for your name (Dawn) and to get back to you.

      Hi Dawnster, thanks! I guess hearing it right from a TA does make it sound pretty good. I sent a message to the resort planner myself and did get a really quick response, so that was great. However, I think it may be out of my guest's budget.... We were looking to go for under about $1700/person and this included flights (from Canada).....maybe we are being unrealistic about it, but I hope not!! I find it hard to ask a couple to spend $4000 to come to our wedding....even though I know it will be great!

          Hi. $4000 does sound steep but do the math to make sure they won't end up staying at a less expensive place and making it more expensive in food & booze. Typically breakfast is $15 -20pp or maybe included, lunch $25 - 30 and dinner $35 -40 + booze. It may end up making the bill steeper (per day: $90 accommo + $50 lunch + 80 din din + $40 booze/drinks) than paying a set price for food & booze. There are some condos that come with chef included (this may be a good option) and then you just market for booze, etc.

          Let us know if may be of more help.

            Ask.CostaRica -
            I just received an e-mail from Paradisus to set-up some of the details and they are reccommending you as a photographer. Can you please send me some info on wedding photo packages that you guys offer. The wedding date is 11/5/10 at 10am (but I'm hoping to change it to a little bit later time). My e-mail is dawn_b323@yahoo.com.

            Thanks in advance.
