When deciding to get married in Costa Rica one of the first decisions you will want to make is which wedding planner to work with. Your Costa Rica wedding planner will be one of the key factors in making sure that your special day is perfect, stress free, and just what you dreamed it would be. Costa Rica has many great wedding planners for you to choose from and finding one that is right for you won’t be hard. It will simply depend on the type of wedding you want to have and the location of your wedding in Costa Rica.
Many of the top locations for destination weddings in Costa Rica, such as Las Catalinas, Andaz Resort, Cala Luna, or the Hotel Diria Tamarindo, have their own in-house wedding planners, whom you can work with to plan your entire wedding if you choose to have your wedding at one of the major venues in Costa Rica. When you work with an in-house wedding planner at one of these major resorts or hotels you will usually end up using all of the in-house services and vendors for your wedding ceremony and reception, and for many people that is fine and works out well. Some couples may choose to have more freedom when it comes to planning their wedding though and for those couples it may make more sense to use a third party, private wedding planner that doesn’t work directly with a major hotel, resort, or venue.
Private wedding planners, such as Tropical Events by Jamie, still work with all the major resorts, venues, and hotels, but also work with smaller venues and more vendors, allowing couples the opportunity to truly personalize their special day and make their wedding something all their own. You can still have your wedding at The Four Seasons Papagayo or the Flamingo Beach Resort without using one of their wedding packages or their wedding planner, it simply means you will use the venue, and in some cases some of the services and vendors while still having the freedom to have your special day go exactly as you see fit.
Working with a Costa Rica wedding planner for your destination wedding is the easiest way to make sure that your wedding works out the way you’ve always dreamed it would. Wedding planners have relationships with many vendors throughout Costa Rica, ensuring that you will get the best services for the best prices. While getting married in Costa Rica is a rather easy process, some obstacles can get in the way for those couples who try to plan their own wedding. One of the main issues that can come up is the simply the language barrier. Unless you are fluent in Spanish, already living in Costa Rica and have a great knowledge of the area in which you are planning your wedding, your best bet is to work with a wedding planner to help you put your day together. Whether you want a grand affair at one of the main resorts such as the Langosta Beach Club, or a quiet gathering on shores of the Pacific, a wedding planner will help make all your dreams come true.
