My experience with the Mil Besos team was seamless. They were so easy to work with. I really just coasted through the entire process without having to worry about making any calls myself or looking for vendors. You would think that getting married in a different country would be difficult and a headache but NOT AT ALL with Mil Besos. I would do it all over again! One of the best days of my life. Special kudos to Connie. She was there from start to finish on the day of my wedding. She made sure everyone and everything was done on time. She even took the time to steam my dress. I’ll never forget this experience. Thank you Mil Besos Team. Pura Vida!

- Zoe + Mark

If you’re thinking about getting married in Costa Rica, immediately hire Mil Besos. We got married at Hacienda Pinilla in December 2023, and hiring Meghan and her team was the best decision we made.

Not only did they recommend incredible vendors (our DJ, photographer, and food were beyond exceptional) but they took care of communicating with our guests about transportation, setting up a catamaran cruise for the entire group of 50 the day before, and coordinated everything with us using project management tools. They were incredible designers who have an eye for beauty, but they’re also amazing planners and coordinators to reduce stress.

The pictures speak for themselves!

"If you are thinking about it… DO IT! BOOK YOUR DESTINATION WEDDING NOW. WORTH ALL THE PRECIOUS MEMORIES. I could go on and on about the love I have for this company. They genuinely cared about us, they listened to us, and they gave us the best memories of our life. Thank you, Josh & Sara."

- Sara Perez

Mil Besos,

If you are thinking about it… DO IT! BOOK YOUR DESTINATION WEDDING NOW. WORTH ALL THE PRECIOUS MEMORIES.
We had our wedding in Tamarindo, CR at Sueno Del Mar in April 2023. Ceremony was at Sueno Del Mar around 5pm and then our reception was next door at the Airbnb. We had 53 guest to attend. Our budget was 25k and I think we were under 32k.

Naturally planning a wedding is a bit overwhelming and time consuming. A hundred decisions need to be made and you have to dedicated a lot of time to this.
But omg, once we arrived to CR our trip was relaxing and so much fun. If you want your guest to have an experience to remember for the rest of their lives, have a destination wedding. The best part is Mil Besos assist your guest with reservations, questions, and activities. This took a lot of stress off a bride while planning.
Mil Besos has a laundry list of vendors they recommended and most of those vendors you can stalk through instagram. Trust Meghan and her crew! The girls that helped our guest- true MVPs!

Cata (with Mil Besos) is the wedding design goodness. She was sweet and attentive. 10 out of 10 for service, professionalism, and being a genuine human.

Our flowers were locally grown and the rentals were handcrafted by Flores de campos. They even made us a surf board stand for the bar idea. I can’t not believe how many beautiful tropical flowers we got for the price. I brag about my flowers all the time.

We are stoked to have spent the extra money to have a live band at our wedding. The musical guru Max and his crew jammed all night long and crushed their performance. They had great hits which kept people on the dance floor. My favorite moment was my brother singing every lyric of ‘ganster in paradise’ during the encore. SERIOUSLY BOOK THEM!!

Sylvia Guardia is the most talented and kind photographer. Every single photo was priceless. She makes you feel comfortable right away and guides you effortlessly through the whole evening. BOOK HER TOO!

I can’t remember the company who we rented the tent from, but they did a fantastic job setting up and breaking down. Very professional.

Sueno Del Mar… where to even start with this gem of a place. The villa is out of this world. Sol, Eduardo, and the crew- thank you for keeping us hydrated, filling our tummy’s up with delicious food, and being there every step of the way.
All the staff for the entire week, the day of the wedding, and the rest of our trip were incredible.
BOOK HERE EVERY YEAR!

Then the icing on the cake… Victoria Victoria Victoria. You are so special. Thank you for making the 45 min drive to Tamarindo. Sitting down with us for a cake tasting which was a core memory. The cake was to die for. I still day dream about how good that cake was. To the staff that left it in our room… <3

I could go on and on about the love I have for this company. They genuinely cared about us, they listened to us, and they gave us the best memories of our life. Thank you, Josh & Sara.

"I can't recommend Mil Besos enough for your Costa Rican wedding. I truly was so impressed and blown away at how incredible this team is. Seriously, BOOK THEM! Thank you, thank you!"

- Cassie + Shawn

Amazing, amazing amazing!!! Mil Besos is the absolute best in the business. My wedding was beyond my wildest dreams and it’s all thanks to Meghan and her team! The team made the whole process so easy for both our guests and us. Every single vendor we used was great and came highly recommended by Mil Besos. They also gave me recommendations on accommodations and venues and gave honest opinions about what they thought would be best for us. I was also so impressed by how easy they made travel and booking things for my guests (thank you Eunice)! The entire process was so personal to us and I felt so taken care of.

Keri with design is absolutely incredible. My vision was all over the place and she helped me bring it to life in such a beautiful way. It felt so us!

Sol and Ilaria were our day of coordinators, and WOW! I love you both so much. They kept us on timeline and kept everyone focused. Both amazing!

Lastly, Mil Besos team (the amazing Arlene) helped me plan and arrange our entire honeymoon. I barely had to lift a finger. Not sure I’ll ever be able to go back to planning trips on my own again after this experience 🙂

I can’t recommend Mil Besos enough for your Costa Rican wedding. I truly was so impressed and blown away at how incredible this team is. Seriously, BOOK THEM! Thank you, thank you!

"My husband and I are so grateful for everything Mil Besos has done to make our dream wedding come to life, and cannot thank them enough for taking our wedding on so last minute. The team at Mil Besos is simply the BEST of the BEST, and I would 10/10 recommend Mil Besos a million times over again."

- Myrlie Luc

Where do I even begin?! The ladies of Mil Besos have far exceeded all expectations that I have ever had for my wedding weekend. My destination wedding was on June 10, 2023 in Costa Rica. I started planning on January 14, 2022 with a different wedding planner. In November of 2022, I had my site visit at the resort, where due to unforseen circumstances, that planner was no longer able to continue with the process, leaving me with 11 months worth of planning to figure out by myself. In a panic, i reached out to Meghan at Mil Besos, who immediately put my mind at ease. Picture it, you’re flown to Costa Rica for your site visit to meet with the planner youve been planning your wedding with for 11 months, and she cancels. I am a woman of faith and truly believe Meghan and her team were God sent. They immediately took charge and took 11 months of UNREALISTIC, and quite frankly, IMPRACTICAL planning and completely turned it around for me. From the moment I reached out to Meghan while I was at the site visit, she sent Connie from her team to meet me at the resort. I am a true believer in the saying “everything happens for a reason”. At that moment, I knew this was meant to be. There aren’t enough words to express how truly thankful I am for the ladies of Mil Besos and everything they have done for me throughout this hectic wedding planning process (although it was no longer hectic when they took my wedding on). From continuously checking in and making sure I felt comfortable throughout the process, to making sure my entire vision came to life. This team is truly the ultimate Dream Team. The knowledge behind the coordination and planning was superb and so professional. They helped me plan an entire destination wedding weekend for 180 guests in 6 months. I’m no expert, but if you ask me, that is unheard of. I am still in awe of how perfect it was.

Wedding Day: I had a 180 guest count wedding in Costa Rica. On site of the resort, I was lucky to be accompanied by Connie, Sol, and Eunice. Now although I know coordination is done before hand as well as during, I am still trying to wrap my head around THREE ladies coordinating such a smooth transition of a ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception of 180 guests including, but not limited to: a bridezilla, a groom, 10 groomsmen, 10 bridesmaids, 2 sets of parents, 3 ring bearers, and 2 flower girls. From the beginning of the day at 8am these ladies were able to bounce around from my husband’s room, to the groomsmen room, to my room, to all 3 venues for our wedding day just to ensure everything was perfect. They made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed, all while making sure all three venues were exactly how we had pictured it. Not once did they complain, and it was all done so effortlessly. The communication was IMPECCABLE. Of course, not everything is going to be sunshine and butterflies, and is going to go as smoothly as you plan. But they made any changes seem like it was part of the original plan. So it was perfect in my eyes. I can vividly remember this one moment when I requested snacks in particular from Sol because I hadn’t eaten, and it was already on its way. Not only did she make sure all of our necessities were met, she also made sure we ate (which most brides forget to do on their wedding day). She went the extra mile and physically fed me bites in between hair and makeup. A literal sweetheart. Whatever you need, these ladies are 10 steps ahead, already thinking about it. If Plan A didn’t follow through(which rarely happened), there was always a Plan B AND C. If you are planning a wedding where all you want to do is explain your vision, sit back, and watch it come to life, Mil Besos is the perfect match for you. I am also a very indecisive person, so design was somewhat difficult for me. Cata was able to offer some of the best advice for design and was even able to give me physical visuals so that I wasn’t completely reliant on mental visuals. The detailing the precision was unremarkable. They made my experience so enjoyable and so undeniably stress free. Not to mention, they also planned both a pool party and rehearsal dinner the evenings leading up to the wedding day that went PHENOMENALLY. The only regret I have in choosing Mil Besos to plan and coordinate my wedding weekend is the fact that I didn’t originally choose them from the beginning.

My husband and I are so grateful for everything Mil Besos has done to make our dream wedding come to life, and cannot thank them enough for taking our wedding on so last minute. The team at Mil Besos is simply the BEST of the BEST, and I would 10/10 recommend Mil Besos a million times over again.

Wedded Bliss in Paradise: Mil Besos Crafts a Dream Come True.

Mil Besos is the destination wedding planner that truly makes dreams come true in Costa Rica. From the first warm interaction, they distinguished themselves with a treasure trove of information and remarkably prompt responses, which are particularly refreshing given the laid-back culture of the region.

What’s exciting about Mil Besos is they are more than just wedding planners; they also excel as travel agents. They skillfully orchestrated luxurious hotels, room blocks, and seamless travel arrangements for our valued guests. They also curated thrilling escapades such as ATVing, ziplining, and jetskiing. The welcome drinks were a harmonious blend, and the rehearsal dinner unfolded as a tastefully crafted, memorable gathering.

One of Mil Besos’ sterling strengths is their synergy with outside vendors. Armed with their insightful recommendations, we collaborated with a constellation of vendors for vibrant flowers, mesmerizing lighting, elegant tables, chairs, linens, tableware, vibrant photography and videography, the most awesome DJ, and delectable cake and desserts. Mil Besos managed these vendors with grace and efficiency, ensuring harmonious coordination.

It can be daunting to plan a wedding remotely, but their sagacious guidance, tailor-made to our tastes and preferences, was like a guiding star. They are true maestros of celebrations! Our friends were awe-struck, exclaiming the night as “otherworldly magical” and an absolute “banger”.

Throughout the planning and design process, their organizational acumen was simply stellar. We were equipped with streamlined spreadsheets for room blocks, and beautifully rendered presentations and mood boards that vividly captured the essence of both the rehearsal dinner and wedding day. Their scrupulous management of our budget was an art form, and remarkably we came in under budget for our dream wedding.

On the wedding day, Mil Besos effortlessly wove our concept of Jungle Luxe into existence. The venue metamorphosed into a sublime oasis, and a magical aura enveloped the air. Every detail was meticulously executed, and it felt like we had stepped into a dreamscape.

Mil Besos deserves the highest accolades and heartful gratitude. Their services are marked by thoroughness, consummate professionalism, and a touch of heartfelt dedication. Our hearts are full of joy for the beautiful experience they crafted. A resounding thank you, Mil Besos, for making our wedding an event that will be treasured for a lifetime.
