Costa Rica – Tips on The Right Wedding Destination

I ran into an interesting wedding article the other day. While most articles talk about many different locations to go to, their advantages and disadvantages,, this one talked about wedding planning tips to help you with your destination decision – no matter where it was that you decided to go. In reading it, I thought how nicely Costa Rica fit into some of their advice and cautions.

The article starts out:
Here are the top tips for a destination wedding:
1. Pick the perfect spot
The location of your wedding determines not only the mood (rustic, sophisticated, beachy), but also the travel, time and budget required to pull it off. You want your guests to walk away from your wedding weekend saying, “That was so them!” Your wedding elements – not just location, but also activities and overall vibe – should say something about your personal style and your passions. Did he propose on vacation in Paris? Then why not host a swank wedding in the City of Lights? Are you foodies? Think about gathering your crew in a place like Tuscany or California wine country. Or if you love outdoor adventures, consider Costa Rica, where guests can zipline through the treetops before the rehearsal dinner.

It was interesting to me as a wedding coordinator, that out of all the places in the world to get married, Costa Rica was mentioned by the author! I feel the same way.

Would you like your wedding to be a little bit different? I imagine you do, if you are thinking about getting married in Costa Rica, you must be just a little adventurous!

Your wedding can be as classical or as different as you would like to make it. Think about different ways to use decorations that will make your wedding unique. Using local products is also an interesting way to bring some of the local art and culture into your wedding.

A wonderful way to make things a little bit different is with signs. Signs have become quite popular in the last year or so. but what you write on them is unique to you! They also make great photos. Look at this adorable flower girl, using the sign to introduce the bride to her Uncle.
