Tips and Trends for your Costa Rica Beach Wedding
We are seeing some inspiring trends happening with destination weddings! Here are some of our favorite and most popular:
Friends and Family: There are lots of ways to make your family and friends feel special at your destination wedding; here a few ideas to consider: Welcome them with beach bags filled with sunscreen, bottled water, a map, and brochures of fun things to do while in Guanacaste! Or, how about a native basket with local Costa Rican coffee and candy? You can also arrange a little family-friendly competition with a game of beach volleyball, or organize a yoga class for your bridesmaids! We can help coordinate a variety of fun activities for your guests, or arrange a spa day for the bridesmaids, or have the guys enjoy an evening of slots in the casino!
Personalized Group Reservations Online or Toll Free: We can provide you with a private web page and a toll free reservation number so both your "web savvy" guests and the older generations can conveniently book their room. We can even put you and your fiancé’s picture and other personalized information on the page!
Flowers: Beautiful tropical flowers are abundant and relatively inexpensive in Costa Rica, so be sure to incorporate them into your wedding. Bunched bougainvillea make a lovely bouquet, and our local orchids look lovely tucked in your hair.
Eco Weddings: More and more we see our wedding couples “going green,” and we like to encourage it! What better way to celebrate than to use natural, sustainable materials for your décor! One of the most popular eco-friendly wedding favor ideas for couples is to give something organic like local mango or banana paper pads, or packages of seeds. We are a 4 leaf sustainable resort!

Legal requirements / General information
People think that getting married in Costa Rica is a complicated matter but your legal officiant can perform a wedding with just copies of your passports and the wedding questionnaire. Your legal officiant takes care of the rest.
You do not need to apply for a marriage license from your county or from Costa Rica. According with Costa Rican Laws, women do not change their last name when they get married. On the legal documentation on your marriage certificate your names will appear as they currently appear in your passports. You can start the process in order to change your last name in your country, if this is your desire, when you submit your marriage certificate to your county.
After the ceremony, you will receive a marriage statement sent to the Costa Rican Civil Registry (the governmental institution which records the marriages in Costa Rica) officially translated into English. You will be able to submit this document to your Marriages Record Office and get your marriage filed in your country once you get back home without waiting for the registration process in Costa Rica to be concluded.
The registration process of a Civil Marriage in Costa Rica takes approximately three months after your wedding day. You will be mailed the definitive official marriage certificate issued by the Costa Rican Civil Registry Office and officially translated by your legal officiant.
The marriage in Costa Rica is recognized in the USA and Canada and it is considered legal internationally.
Your legal officiant services include performing of all the legal documentation you will need, the registration of the documents at the Costa Rican Civil Registry Office and the translation and mailing of the final marriage certificate. The fee for their services is $500.00.
Below you will find the necessary information needed to begin planning your Costa Rican wedding. If you have any questions, you can contact us, and we will be glad to help you. We look forward to meeting you and assisting you for such a special occasion!
REQUIREMENTS FOR GETTING MARRIED IN COSTA RICA:
- Current passports for Groom, Bride and Witnesses (obligatory / copies needed beforehand).
- Birth Certificates for Groom and Bride.
- Single or divorce certificates for groom and bride.
- If any one, groom or bride, has been married previously, a photocopy of the final Judgment executing the divorce.
- In case the bride has been divorced from previous marriage during the previous 10 months from the wedding date, certifications issued by two official Costa Rican Physicians stating that she is not currently pregnant.
- Two witnesses at the ceremony. Anyone can serve you as witnesses even your close family or the hotel employees (In case you do not have any witnesses the attorneys office can provide them for you without any additional cost).
- Fill out the wedding information questionnaire (we will provide you with one!)
It is not necessary to stay in Costa Rica for any period of time before getting married. The documents you bring here do not need to be translated into Spanish, and you don't need to bring the originals.
Some required documents are “dispensable” meaning we substitute all the dispensable documents with a sworn declaration by the two of you that IS prepared based on the information you give.
All that we need from the couples to prepare the legal documentation is TO fill out the questionnaire below:
