Your wedding day will truly be a wondrous event, even more than you have
dreamed of, when this day happens in the graced, natural sanctuary of Costa
Rica. Costa Rica is an easily accessible country, just a few hours from many North America destinations,
and only a few hours more from many European destinations.
This central country is poised to receive you and able to accommodate
your every need and desire. Your appreciative family and friends will
be happy to come here will and thank you for choosing such an interesting
and beautiful place for your joyous event.
Costa Rica is rapidly becoming a popular wedding venue for several reasons.
Firstly, there are excellent inns and luxurious four and five star hotels along
with countless pristine venues awaiting your consideration for this special
gathering. For example, envision all or part of this special day in an old
growth rainforest with majestic cathedral-like trees, compelling you to lift
your eyes upward while sheltering you in a world of an ancient existence, or
envision yourself on a sweeping beach, or an exotic national park, where unique,
brilliantly-colored birds can sing for you.
Are you considering many menu options? No problem! You can choose from the
typical fair of Costa Rica, with delights that will probably be new to you and
your guests. Costa Rica has attracted many chefs from around the world, including Europe and North America, who have
chosen to live in this country because of its many riches. As a result, you
will easily be able to call upon one of these chefs to create many national and
ethnic menus. You will be able to find chefs who prepare feasts that will make you
believe you are in Paris or Rome, for example. If you would like, sometimes the chefs will add just
a bit of a twist to the traditional recipes just to fascinate the taste buds of
you and your honored guests. Ah! And you will be able to enjoy such foods
amidst the gently waving palm tress of Costa Rica.
Another point, indeed not a small point, is that a wedding here can be produced at a fraction of the cost compared to North America and Europe. Because of the excellent exchange rate between the Colone and the dollar of the United States and Canada or the Euro, a significantly lower price tag can include all the necessary wedding professionals, including, for example, the wedding planner, who will very competently be your personal consultant, creating with you the reality from your vision. Their attention to your vision and more importantly, their knowledge of the local possibilities will have all your plans come out excellently. The exotic flowers that you might have seen in books and magazines are grown right here in Costa Rica. As a result, you will be able to touch, and then select these beauties first hand. Because they are grown locally, the flowers will be very fresh, perhaps cut that very morning. The flower budget is one of the many examples of something that is a large expense elsewhere but a fraction of the cost here in Costa Rica.
And after the great day? Well, the honeymoon is the next event of course. No
need to leave your reverie by getting on a plane and traveling afar for the
post-wedding events. You will be able to just continue your magical moment by
stepping outside your room, perhaps having the sand between your toes and the
gentle sea breezes blowing in your face.
Your guests can have their own vacation before and/or after the
wedding day. If they come early, they will be rested and relaxed, more ready to
celebrate, making your day even more of a delight. And Discover Costa Rica can
help you get in touch with all the right people, just ask us!
