Brides in Bloom

Little Maidens

It’s been a busy season for weddings at Hotel Sugar Beach – our favorite kind of celebration. Whether it’s an intimate gathering of immediate family, or a party replete with flower girls and second cousins, a destination wedding allows everyone a chance to relax and soak up the occasion.

While wedding day jitters are not unheard of in Costa Rica, nature does conspire to lull brides, grooms, parents and maids of honor into a state of calm.  The soothing sound of warm Pacific waves. The balmy breeze.  A brilliant sunset crowning a tropical day. These are the enchantments of Guanacaste, and by all accounts they work like a dream.

We have also noticed over the years that our secluded cove provides both families a unique opportunity to get to know one another. For one thing, bathing suits are usually involved, which is a fairly quick way to drop a pretense or two. But more than that, it’s the nature of our location, a peaceful environment that promotes closeness and connection.

Most weddings take place over the course of a long weekend, with plenty of sun soaked hours for shy strangers to become lifelong relations.  When you’re here, it’s easy to think of Sugar Beach as “yours,” and to feel as if you and your party are in some special corner of Paradise that was carved out especially for you. There’s no other place quite like it.  It will become part of your story, and in that way, Sugar Beach will be yours to keep.
