Additional Wedding Imagery

At Dreams Las Mareas, we feel each wedding should be as unique and special as you are! The wedding
coordinators are able to customize your wedding specifically to your tastes. We strongly encourage to
share your vision with your wedding coordinator by giving them pictures of your dream set up and they
will work to make it a reality. From flowers, ceremony chairs, finishing touches and more, your day can be
just how you imagined it to be! To see images of wedding locations and previous set ups the resort has
                     beautifully executed, please view our Pinterest board for the resort at:

In order to get legally married in Dreams Las Mareas Costa Rica, there are a few requirements you need. Even though by law the wedding couple only needs

requirements.

Requirments:

     a previous marriage), please provide a brief explanation.

     Kindly avoid the following terms as they are vague: company director, project control officer, public official, service technician, assistant, assistant
     manager, strategy consultant, manager, operations manager, coordinator, etc.
•    Current home address (No P.O. Box).
•    Passport number and Citizenship. Please make sure each passport is signed by the bearer. Scan them together and email (Scans: send the scan in JPG or
     PDF format and size around 500k)

     and his/her citizenship, no initials, please. No need to send the actual divorce papers. If you’ve been divorced more than once, please send the
