I believe that I have finished planning everything for my June 2012 elopement in Costa Rica.
I have our:
– Wedding Venue
– Wedding Dinner
– Wedding Bands
– Honeymoon Suite
– Beach hut
– Transportation in Costa Rica
The only thing left is to get my wedding dress, fiance’s tuxedo, our accessories, and our airplane tickets.
Did you notice anything that I left out?! I’m worried that I forgot something!

@Callque: Looks good to me! Do you have the marriage license application & info?

Looks pretty good. What about music? Processional/recessional songs were two things I almost forgot about.
The marriage license one is good, can’t forget that.

yeah, the license and that stuff is the only other thing I thought of. I know that the marriage certificate takes a little longer – I heard somewhere around 3 months to get because of the pura vida vibe.
Also I know you need 2 witnesses there and they can not be relatives. So keep that in mind.
I am so lime green jello! I lived there for a year and it is absolutely stunning! Have a fantastic time!

- Wedding: December 2010 - Al Cielo / La Laguna
Wow you have done great!! I could only think of a couple things but not super important or anything.
Hair and makeup appointments if you are having someone do them.
Ttems you need for any part of the ceremonies in your wedding – eg sand ceremony, unity candle, etc.
Also any props or special items for pictures like a parasol, etc.

In Costa Rica, besides an officiant, you need to have a lawyer present at the time of the ceremony (he also handles all the paperwork). Oftentimes the officiant are lawyers who do this all the time, but it can be two seperate people. It is good to know ahead of time. Have a blast!
