We are getting married in November, which is end of the wet season/beginning of dry season.
We didn't want to wait too long, and prices tend to go up after November and go back down around April. So we picked November and are hoping to have good weather.
Long before we were engaged but decided on a DW, we had always said Costa RIca because it is a place we both want to go to and has a lot of activities that suit us.
When we finally got engaged (after seven and a half years), CR was out, because my sister, who just got married in April, and her new husband honeymooned there. And my sister and her husband are very much about themselves, especially him, so we didn't want to go there for our wedding and have him make it all about himself.
So it was out of the running.
But then we had a hard time agreeing on any other location. If I picked one he would find a reason to not like it and vice versa.
So finally, one day we were out for a drive and he said, why don't we just go to Costa Rica, it's where we originally wanted to go and let's not let them ruin that.
So Costa Rica was selected.
Then we decided, since they went to Guancaste, we would just go to another area.
We came across escape villas and fell in love withe Casa de las Brisas and after much thought, decided to book it.
I am so excited and can't wait to move forward with our plans.
