"This team goes above and beyond to make your day perfect."

- Danielle + Marcus

Choosing the Mil Besos team to plan our wedding was the best decision we made! Meghan helped us choose the location, the villa, and every detail of how our wedding day would go.

For wedding design, we worked with Cata. She was so personable and responsive. She made choosing furniture, flowers, and other decorations easy. On the wedding day everything was incredibly well done.

This team goes above and beyond to make your day perfect. One special memory I have is how happy I was when I saw the lighting over the dinning table. When discussing lighting options, what I wanted was out of our budget and seemed too difficult to execute. But to my surprise, the lights were way better than we what had originally settled on. It was beautiful.

When my husband and I created our wedding budget, a videographer was not in the plan. Lucky for us, a videographer messaged Meghan looking for a Costa Rica wedding shoot for their portfolio. Getting a wedding video at no cost was an absolute treat and we are so grateful.

Sol was the coordinator for the wedding day. With her leading the charge, I knew I wouldn’t have to worry about a thing. She was so organized and brought such positive energy to the day. I’d highly recommend her for day of execution.

In addition to coordinating the wedding day, Meghan also helped us book a caterer for other dinners, a yoga class at the villa, and recommended other awesome vendors we could book with.

I can’t say enough good things about Mil Besos. If you are planning your destination wedding in Costa Rica, choosing them in a no-brainer!

"Meghan and her team are truly a joy to work with, one of the best in the world!"

- Anna + Mateo

Meghan and her team are truly a joy to work with, one of the best in the world! I contacted Meghan to help me host a retreat for photographers in Costa Rica, and she went above and beyond to ensure the event was a success. From venue selections, to accommodations, to timelines and shoot design, Meghan’s team took care of all of the details perfectly! I am so impressed with their organizational abilities and how connected they are with local businesses in Costa Rica as well as the Costa Rican culture. It was so helpful to have someone who understood the region on our team to offer us important insights! I would hire her for another event in a heartbeat! I also have worked with Mil Besos as the photographer/videographer for a wedding they planned, and I was similarly impressed. All of the vendors were on the same page, and despite a very busy schedule, the day was seamless. Meghan even sought out medication for one of the children who attended and had an allergic reaction to the sand– above and beyond! You can’t do any better than Mil Besos.

"The number 1 star on her team that I can't gush enough about is her designer, Catalina! LOVE LOVE Catalina!"

- Michelle + David

Couldn’t have done it without Meghan and her team! I tried to plan the wedding on my own for the first few months but quickly realized it was almost close to impossible considering I live in a different country nor do I speak the language. Spoke to several wedding planners over the phone before hiring Mil Besos. I chose Meghan because we clicked over the phone very easily and knew we would get along great. She made the process very easy to follow with her phone app (we pretty much planned the whole wedding using the app and texting.)

The number 1 star on her team that I can’t gush enough about is her designer, Catalina! LOVE LOVE Catalina! She was awesome, easy to work with, answered all my questions/texts with quick responses anytime during the day. Catalina also served as my “therapist” at one point with guests drama as the wedding date got closer haha. I would say Catalina was definitely an integral part of the planning, I kept in touch with her the most. There was communication issues with the hotel venue (Villa Caletas) but Cat and Meghan were on them to make sure things were getting done and always kept me in the loop.

Kristina was my day of coordinator, she is awesome! Very direct and straight to the point with any decisions on the day of which I appreciated so I didn’t have to really think or decide anything last minute. Took the stress off of me.

After the wedding was over, at least half the guests mentioned how it was one of the most beautiful, most put-together weddings they have attended. Even my photographer and videographers thought it was one of the smoothest weddings they have worked. Overall, I couldn’t have picked a better team to help plan out my big day!

"Meghan quickly became attune to my personality and style and adapted to it with professionalism and thoughtfulness."

- Kait + Matt

Meghan and her team are absolutely amazing. Meghan quickly became attune to my personality and style and adapted to it with professionalism and thoughtfulness. All of her suggestions took into consideration the many conversations we had. If I needed additional options for vendors, layout, etc., she would always return promptly with several well researched suggestions.

Having Meghan behind the wheel was invaluable. I honestly could not imagine having gone through the process without her. Between her experience, vendor connections, and insights the day went off without a hitch.

Also – Catalina, our wedding designer, was a dream. She made the process SO fun. Her creativity, eye for design, and dedication to our day made it feel as though it was as important to her as it was to us. I cannot say enough good things about her.

To hire the Mil Besos team is to guarantee success. Cheers and good luck!

"I felt like she was my guardian angel sent to help take all of the stressors away that planning the biggest day of your life can bring upon you."

- Brooke + Shahin

We decided we wanted to do a destination wedding and get married in Costa Rica, one of our favorite places. At first, I tried to start planning on my own, and was able to get a decent amount done (venue booked, dress found, photographer and videographer) on my own. I soon came to realize that there is A LOT that goes into planning a wedding, especially when you live in another Country (we live in Texas) and your Spanish is sub-par to say the least.

I found Meghan and the Mil Besos Team after doing tons of research on planners. I loved how they had experience both here in the States as well as in Costa Rica. The Team was wonderful from the moment I first interacted with them! I remember wanting to hug Meghan the first time I spoke with her. I felt like she was my guardian angel sent to help take all of the stressors away that planning the biggest day of your life can bring upon you.

They thought of EVERYTHING! So many things I would never have even thought of. All I had to do was outline my vision, and they went to work making it happen. We did floral trials, food tastings, shipped fake flowers in from China, made our own napkin rings, and so many other small details that one would think a planner would never help with. They truly love what they do and take pride in making this day your most special and memorable day.

The planning is one thing, but the execution is another. The day of the wedding the team made sure every step of the way was covered. Everyone in my Wedding Party knew where to go, when to be there and what to do. It was like they were a team of Wedding Ninjas just knocking things out left and right. I had the most stress free wedding experience I can imagine and it really is all thanks to the Mil Besos Team.

It isn’t just one person that you work with. You work with a designer, a florist expert, a planning expert, etc. They use an application to make communications easy and are always available, no matter what time of day or night. Do yourself a favor and hire this Team. You will not regret it. It was the best decision I made throughout my whole planning process.

Thank you Mil Besos! You truly are amazing at what you do and we cannot thank you enough for making our day one we will never forget. 🙂

"They made the experience stress free and enjoyable."

- Cheyenne + Jake

Our destination dream wedding came true thanks to Meghan and everyone at Mil Besos. I cannot thank them enough!

When my husband and I first decided on our Costa Rican destination wedding, we really did not no where to start. We started looking at venues online by random searches. We quickly found out we were over our heads. As a new bride Instagram and Pinterest were my new favorite apps. I wanted to see pictures of wedding in Costa Rica and various tagged locations. I was blessed by accidentally coming across a beautiful wedding picture on Mil Besos’s Instagram page. I then looked up their website and saw all the wonderful reviews, awards, and various mentions they have received in bridal magazines.

I contacted the company and they were quick to respond with all of my many questions. The rest is history! Meghan was there every step of the way and made the whole wedding process a breeze. All of my guests were so impressed at the quick responses from the company when booking their stay, excursions, and flights.

Also, a huge thanks to Catalina for helping me create our beautiful wedding. She made making the big or small decisions about the wedding decor so easy and fun!

I could not recommend this company enough for helping you plan your dream destination wedding. They made the experience stress free and enjoyable. Thanks again Mil Besos!

"... anything we were thinking of, they were there to help."

- Via + George

We were overwhelmed with planning a destination wedding. We initially contacted some hotels but their wedding packages weren’t quite what we were looking for, they were a little too impersonal with little flexibility. So we started looking for wedding planners.

We contacted a few wedding planners but Meghan/Mil Besos was the only one that responded quickly and thoughtfully. She addressed everything I asked in our email from budget to multiple venue options.. and that was just from the first email! The app for planning was easy to follow and gave us a good timeline of when things should get done.

Our wedding day was stress free. Sol was our coordinator and she made sure we were happy and organized the entire day. The flowers and rentals were straight from my Pinterest board, everything was executed exactly how we envisioned. The food vendors they suggested were FANTASTIC, my guests still tell me how great the food was. Oh! She also helped us plan our mini honeymoon in Costa Rica… anything we were thinking of, they were there to help.

Overall, We are so happy that we chose Meghan and the Mil Besos team! Thanks again!!

"You can tell they love what they do, and I’m so so happy Meghan/Mil Besos was recommended to me by our friends."

- Sami + Garret

Our wedding was amazing and we have Meghan/Mil Besos to thank!

We were married at a private villa that belongs to a friend of our family, so for about 5 minutes, I thought about planning it myself. The logistics of bringing everything in prompted me to look for a planner. That was the best decision I could have made, everything exceeded my expectations!

The flowers, the food… I am a bit of a worrier and a destination wedding comes with so many unknowns. Throughout planning Meghan was there to help me and the planning system she uses kept me comfortable knowing where I was in planning and what was coming next.

Everyone that works with her had such a positive sunny vibe and they were so relaxed!!! I arrived several days ahead thinking I would have loose ends to tie up but there wasn’t anything for me to do, it was all finished, so I got to lay on the beach and fall off a LOT of surfboards in my attempts at surfing – but I did it!! You can tell they love what they do, and I’m so so happy Meghan/Mil Besos was recommended to me by our friends. Absolutely 10000% recommend Meghan and her team!!

"THANK YOU Mil Besos for your everlasting impact on our life!"

- Sharon + Jake

There are not enough words available to express the appreciation we have for Mil Besos and Meghan!

Meghan crafted our absolute dream wedding. Every detail down to the napkin color was thought out for both my husband and I AND all of our guests. The best thing about using a company like Mil Besos for a destination wedding is that they act as your travel agent AND your wedding planner!

She ALSO planned a dream honeymoon for us! Meghan’s level of professionalism is second to none! She was right on the ball with everything from the moment we got engaged until the last minute of our honeymoon. HIGHLY recommend Mil Besos, can’t say enough positive things about their entire team!

Also – highly recommend taking them up on their vendor recommendations (florist, video, photo, DJ…etc.) as Meghan ONLY works with the best in the industry! THANK YOU Mil Besos for your everlasting impact on our life!

"They cared and took my wedding as seriously (If not more so!) as I did!"

- Cassie + Jay

If you are thinking of a wedding in Costa Rica, Mil Besos is where you need to start! I have a hard time saying ‘NO’ sometimes and they always sensed when I was hesitant and coached me into figuring out what I REALLY wanted. They knew the places I visited so well, best practices, and even the locals we were working with. They pushed to meet deadlines without it feeling like they were pushing at all! They were very open to my crazy ideas, and always responsive! Even when I would email them in the middle of the night with weird thoughts or ideas. They talked to my guests for me when they had questions before we left and it felt like we all knew them before we even got there! It was like we were friends, but we hadn’t even met yet! Everything just went SO smoothly, and even when I messed up timelines or one of my guests lost something they would just be there to help out! Even when I don’t think it was their job, they were going out of their way to help and make sure nothing went wrong the whole 8 days we were there. They cared and took my wedding as seriously (If not more so!) as I did! If you want to do this wedding planning as smoothly and easily as possible, these guys are hands down the only way to go!
