A perfect pack list: Essential items for your wedding in Costa Rica


Planning a destination wedding is an exciting adventure, and when it comes to breathtaking locations, Costa Rica offers a stunning backdrop for your special day. From pristine beaches to lush rainforests, this tropical paradise has it all. As you embark on this unforgettable journey, it’s essential to have a well-curated pack list to ensure you have everything you need for your wedding in Costa Rica. In this blog, we will explore the must-have essentials that will make your celebration smooth, stress-free, and unforgettable.

Passport and Travel Documents:

First and foremost, ensure that all your travel documents are in order. Bring your passport (valid for at least 6 more months), driver’s license, and any other identification required for international travel. It’s also a good idea to have copies of your travel itineraries, hotel reservations, and contact information for local vendors.

Wedding attire and accessories:

Pack your wedding attire with care to ensure it arrives in pristine condition. Consider using a garment bag or investing in a protective travel box to safeguard your dress or suit. Don’t forget to pack your wedding shoes, jewelry, and any other accessories that will complete your ensemble.

Venue and ceremony essentials:

Depending on your chosen venue and ceremony type, there are a few items you should consider bringing along. If you plan to have a beach wedding, consider having handheld fans or parasols to keep guests cool, or go with our signature engraved coconuts, a natural cold drink that will be the hit of your ceremony.

Climate-smart clothing:

Costa Rica’s weather is tropical and can vary depending on the region and time of year. Pack lightweight, breathable fabrics suitable for warm weather, such as linen or cotton. Don’t forget to include swimwear, comfortable walking shoes or sandals, sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen to protect yourself and your guests from the sun’s rays.

Cash and essentials:

Before your trip, get some cash on hand for tips, transportation, or any unexpected expenses. Although many places in Costa Rica accept credit cards, having cash is always convenient. Additionally, pack essentials like travel-sized toiletries, insect repellent wipes, and a small sewing kit for any last-minute emergencies.

When it comes to packing for your dream wedding in Costa Rica, careful planning and organization are key. Remember to pack essential travel documents, wedding attire, climate-smart clothing, bug repellent, first aid supplies, and any wedding decorations or favors you desire.
