Destination weddings in Costa Rica are legal when officiated by a public notary.
Costa Rica Wedding Planners has several legal officiates available for our couples. The couple will want to
consider the officiate's background in weddings, past testimonials, and ceremony delivery. Your choice of Costa
Rica Wedding officiates is another way to reflect your personal style in your Destination Wedding.
Some couples prefer a more laid back ceremony where your guests will hear your entire service spoken in perfect
English. Other couples look for an authentic feel and ask for a lawyer who will perform the actual vow exchange in
Costa Rics's native language: Spanish. If the option is English or Spanish, all officiates want to be sure all
parties involved understand the commitment required to enter into a marriage according to Costa Rica laws.
You will be provided with the ceremony wording well in advance for your review. You may even want to add a
special poem, song, or religious tradition. Our offiviates not only are happy to add this to their standard script,
as they often enjoy learning new traditions from around the world.
Religious Ceremony: Costa Rica Wedding Planners can help you involve almost any religious aspect into your
Destination Wedding Ceremony.
There have been several occasions when a Priest (for example) is present with the Lawyer to engage both a
religious and legal ceremony in Costa Rica. Many options can be considered when couples want to involve a religious
tradition into the vow exchange. Our Wedding Coordinators can determine the extent you would like the church of
your choice involved. We can customize a solution unique to a wide range of religions.
