"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!

"I will never forget my beautiful wedding day."

- Alysa + Manuel

My now husband and I first visited Costa Rica after 2 years of dating and made a promise to come back and get married which we did on our 7 year anniversary and they made my Dream Wedding come true and even helped with the Catholic church process which is so very hard to get done. I can never thank them enough for helping keep us calm, even when things popped up I never knew it happen until someone else mentioned it. I will never forget my beautiful wedding day.

"Meghan and her team made our wedding day an absolute dream come true!!"

- Meghan + Michael

My husband and I used Mil Besos to plan our destination wedding. Meghan and her team made our wedding day an absolute dream come true!!. Meghan and Cata are amazing and so easy to work with. We had a vision and they both went above and beyond to execute it. From the ceremony arch, to the flowers, to the reception venue and every detail in between, everything came together better than we could have ever imagined, we were blown away! They were both accessible whenever I had a question or wanted to run an idea by them. I always felt like I was a priority. Meghan plans for everything. We had a plan for the ceremony and reception and also a backup in case of rain which ended up coming in handy because we had to go with plan b for the ceremony. Sol was our day of coordinator, just as amazing as the rest of the team, and took care of everything. She made the appropriate changes quickly and seamlessly, always with a positive attitude and smile on her face. I did not have to worry about a thing. Not only were my husband and I taken care of, the guests were as well. Meghan worked with everyone to plan their getaway as well as book any transportation or excursions they may have wanted to do. We cannot praise this company enough! We highly recommend Mil Besos for your destination wedding. Contact Meghan immediately, you will not regret it!! Pura Vida

"Honestly hiring a wedding coordinator took so much stress and worry away from us."

- Tamara + Dave

Meghan and her team were amazing throughout the whole process and especially the day of the wedding …special thanks to Kristina and Carolla 🙂 Honestly hiring a wedding coordinator took so much stress and worry away from us. We had a destination wedding in Tamarindo, Costa Rica at the Pangas Beach Club and it was truly magical…..the service was beyond amazing and we had an awesome party! The decor and flowers exceeded my expectations…….Cata the designer outdid herself, and was so great to work with 🙂 I would highly recommend Mil Besos as a wedding/travel coordinator.

"I honestly don’t know where to begin with how perfect Mil Besos made our entire wedding experience."

- Courtney + Chris

I honestly don’t know where to begin with how perfect Mil Besos made our entire wedding experience. Meghan is so attentive and prompt responding to emails and helped with everything from choosing vendors, to suggesting Honeymoon locations, to every little detail about our day. She was so thorough, and our day could not have gone smoother! Her team is incredible, and her connections in the wedding community in Costa Rica are invaluable. She was there with us every step of the way and I highly recommend her. I even told some of my wedding planner friends at home about her and they were even impressed when I told them how helpful and amazing she was! She’s the best and I would hire her again in a second!

"It was truly a joy and pleasure to work with the whole Mil Besos team on our wedding, and we'll treasure these memories forever!"

- Rebecca + Michael

We can’t believe it’s nearing six months since our beautiful wedding trip, and we would be remiss if we didn’t thank Meghan and her wonderful team for making it all happen in a truly breathtaking fashion. Mil Besos helped us plan a 5 day trip for 45 guests to Tamarindo Diria Beach Resort in Playa Tamarindo, with our wedding ceremony taking place at Pangas Beach Club. Meghan and team coordinated our guest’s accommodations, travel to and from the airport, excursions, and the wedding day, of course. My husband and I have a crazy work and personal schedule, so the thought of coordinating a wedding in another country was daunting, but Meghan made it all seem effortless! I live in the U.S., so we corresponded through email and used a project management app, which made it super easy to plan and talk with her during the work day or send a quick note through my phone when I was out and about. Meghan understood the wedding details that were most important to us and helped us choose (and successfully book) the vendors that made our vision materialize (and within our price points too!). She was extremely responsive throughout the planning process, always responding to questions or comments within a day or two, if that.

When our group arrived in Costa Rica, the Mil Besos team helped our guests with any questions and travel/excursion adjustments they wanted to make along the way. That was a MAJOR win for my husband and me; we were able to just enjoy the trip, rather than play the role of trip coordinators. On the day of the wedding, Meghan, Sol, and Artflower were a force to be reckoned with! They made sure our guests and bridal party were where they were supposed to be when they were supposed to be there and the venue was all ready to go.

It was truly a joy and pleasure to work with the whole Mil Besos team on our wedding, and we’ll treasure these memories forever!

"I would recommend them 10 out of 10 times and then over and over again."

- Kristen + Casey

My husband and I used Mil Besos to plan our small wedding and honeymoon. We changed our plans drastically at least three times (from a larger wedding to an elopement and then back to a small wedding with only a month to spare). And although I know that it was so much extra work for Meghan at times, she made things seamless and perfect. My husband and I had never even been to Costa Rica before so rest assured we had questions about absolutely everything. Meghan was absolutely wonderful.

Catalina, the designer that worked with Meghan during the planning process, was also wonderful. She had a great eye. Together, they really went above and beyond to execute what we had imagined. The driftwood arch we had imagined, for example, turned out to be exactly what we had described wanting, even though we didn’t have a real picture to go off of. The ceremony in Tamarindo was absolutely beautiful and was exactly what we had imagined. The details were perfect and even though a thunderstorm erupted right before the ceremony and everything had to be moved, they all handled it with such grace and patience. They made me feel so calm and like I honestly had to do nothing at all.

I would recommend them 10 out of 10 times and then over and over again.

"I never thought I would’ve gotten practically everything I wanted and dreamed for in a destination wedding, but wow did Meghan deliver!"

- Nicole + Jad

My husband and I got engaged while visiting Costa Rica and quickly decided we wanted to get married there as well the following year which is where Meghan from Our Costa Rica Wedding/Mil Besos comes in. From my original contact with Meghan, to the very last detail and wrap up, I felt as if I was her #1 client and of upmost importance to her (which every bride wants to feel, right!?). She and her staff are incredibly professional and insightful. I could never have dreamed of having such a delightful wedding planning experience especially in another country. We actually had fun getting to know one another via emails each step of the way. As a wedding planner, it is obvious Meghan has a love for her job and has all the right contacts for putting together a picture perfect event. She and her staff easily guided me through every detail pointing out the multiple options and giving opinions when I needed them (which was often). She helped me pick out the best vendors to meet my every need and I’m truly glad I followed her guidance. One thing I valued most about her services was the trip planning for each guest so that I would have to answer as view questions as possible. She booked activities, transportation, and rooms for each person taking a large amount of stress off me.

As for the wedding day itself, I kept saying and want to emphasize “I never thought I would’ve gotten practically everything I wanted and dreamed for in a destination wedding, but wow did Meghan deliver!” It was amazing, stunning, organized, and picturesque!!! Not at all like the cookie cutter weddings you get at a typical resort in the Caribbean.

"I highly recommend you contact Meghan immediately."

- Lynne + Daniel

To be honest, the thought of a destination wedding worried me at first. I’m a bit of a control freak. I thought… Would our friends and family travel? Could we afford it? Could I effectively convey my vision via internet and phone? How would the planning come together if I’m not there to oversee it? All of these questions and any other worries I had were quickly washed away with Meghan’s confidence and encouragement! She walked us through the entire process… and made it easy and fun.

We married in Playa Hermosa on the beach at sunset, birds chirping, waves crashing, monkeys playing in the trees above. It was magical and breath-taking! Meghan helped us pick the perfect venue, caterer, DJ, musician, officiator, etc. Catalina, her designer, helped us bring together all of the details such as flowers, table arrangements, lighting, etc. Both of these women are lovely, grounded, creative and kind. By the time we were finished planning, I felt like they could finish my sentences. It felt like they were childhood friends, and frankly, I fell in love with both of them!

I simply could not say enough good things about Mil Besos and our experience. I highly recommend you contact Meghan immediately. If you are the least bit curious… go for it! Just contact her and see if it’s a good fit for you. You will be so grateful and happy that you did. Your love and union deserves to be celebrated!! Let Mil Besos bring your intentions and vision to life. They will help you create (not only) the wedding of your creams, they will help you create a vacation/honeymoon/experience of a life-time.

In the words of our friends and family that attended our celebration…. Best wedding ever!!

"Everything from the beginning to the end was seamless and an absolute blast."

- Peggy + Jason

My fiance and I got engaged in March of 2018 and decided shortly thereafter we wanted to do a destination wedding in Costa Rica. I reached out to a ton of wedding planners in Costa Rica and as soon as I received a response from Meghan I wanted to hire her! She was immediately so helpful, so knowledgeable and made the daunting task of planning a wedding abroad seem easy. We set up a Skype call and she helped us narrow down 3-4 venues to look at. Fast forward later and we booked Pangas Beach Club as our venue for December 2019.

Meghan put is in contact with all of the best vendors. Meghan’s team is also amazing to work with! I worked with Cata on the florals and design aspects. Cata was always available by email, phone, text, etc. She really understood the vision I had for the wedding and made my design dreams a reality.

My guests worked with Arlene to book their hotels, airport transportation, etc. Arlene was super responsive and my guests all had wonderful things to say about how helpful she was in booking their plans.

Kristina was my day-of coordinator and she was so cool to work with. She really put me at ease and made me feel relaxed on my wedding day. She was super on top of things and such a boss.

Meghan is so knowledgeable about weddings in general, not to mention her specialized knowledge of all things Costa Rica. There wasn’t a single question I had that Meghan couldn’t answer for me. Her team was simply amazing. The wedding day went EXACTLY as planned with about 90 guests attending.

Everything from the beginning to the end was seamless and an absolute blast. If you are considering a destination wedding, do not hesitate and book Meghan as your planner! Meghan and her team truly made my destination wedding dreams come true. Thank you Mil Besos Costa Rica!!!
