Wedding In Jaco, Costa Rica June 2018

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone, 

 

Any advice from anyone with Costa Rica Advice would be greatly appreciated!

 

Getting Married June 2018 in Jaco, Costa Rica. 

It's frustrating and difficult to book/reserve vendors that I do not actually know (and just putting the trust into the hotel) all the way from Florida. I have seen some interesting and helpful posts from past brides but the posts date back to 2007... etc and a lot of the links are no longer able to be seen. 

 

The hotel has vendors they suggest, however, if I do not use their vendors they will charge me $100 for each new vendor I bring from the outside...

 

Hair and makeup- they are charging me $100 for each service! I know that this is expensive because I was just in 2 weddings last year here and they were not nearly as expensive... They aren't willing to give me a group discount for my party either- everyone pays $100 for each service....I've seen the pictures of her work also, its "okay"... not overly impressed ....

 

 

Officiant.... We don't necessarily need an official one as we are getting legally married first in Florida but, we'd like someone to hold the ceremony and they want to charge us over $600 for it...

 

Violin and piano.... music

They are charging me $1,100 for 2 hours.... I also need a DJ for the last hours but this price makes it difficult to do anything else... 

 

Flowers and Decor.... 

For tall floral centerpieces they are charging $350... what do you think? 

 

Favors...

Does anyone have a suggestion of what they gave their guests seeing as though its a destination wedding and you don't want to fill their luggage with something unnecessary... 

 

 

Can anyone recommend a vendor they know, trust and like?! Also, if you've been married in Costa Rica, how do the above prices and features sound to you? I always thought the prices in Costa Rica should be a little better than in the states- I don't want to feel like I'm getting taken advantage of... 

Any input and advice is very appreciated! 

 

THANK YOU!

The same thing was happening to me, I ended up hiring a planner and received many more vendor options for each service (and better quality), at the vendors real prices rather than Hotel marked up prices. The savings on receiving the regular vendor prices made up for a good amount of the planning fee. And the rest of the fee was well worth it for how much less stressful it was. Good luck!

    • So long story short I want to have my wedding in Jamaica in December. However, it's booked up. So next option is Cancun. I am going to be doing a Tamil Sri Lankan South Asian wedding. I want a 5 star hotel.  I was set on Royalton as that is where I always go and love it. However, it seems really pricy for the wedding. I am looking to have 30-40 people.  I want to spend the least amount of money ... Doesn't everyone!  I want to know what 5 star chain or resort provides the best deals for weddings? I would love to know about Moon Palace( I can't get a hold of anyone!)  If there are any other ones please let me know!  
    • I want to testify to the glory of Lord Masuka, the spell caster that helped me restored my marriage. It all started when my husband came back home acting weird for no reason, I tried to find out what was going on but he refused talking to me for days, he woke up one morning and say to me that he needs a break and he left without any clue where he's going, I was so shocked and devastated because I have done nothing wrong to him other than being a supporting wife, I cried all day, one fateful evening I saw series of comments on how Lord Masuka had restored collapsed marriages, so I decided to give him a try. He assured me that all hope are not lost yet, I followed the instructions he gave me and to my greatest surprise my husband who had left me for  months without a call came to my work place and begged for forgiveness, now we are happy family because of Lord Masuka.

    • You are definitely not alone in this I am sure!  As much as you want all of your friends and family there, DWs can be tough for a lot of people to make.  Some for financial reasons and others because they have a weird chip on their shoulder about you having one.  It sucks initially but you aren't getting married for them!  And for all of the people who make it, you will create an even stronger bond.  I hope it gets better and please keep us posted!
