•   In order to authenticate your marriage, you will require two witnesses to be present at your wedding ceremony in Costa Rica. They cannot be direct relatives. If you are planning an intimate wedding, the wedding coordinator can source the two required witnesses.

•  Two documents require signing.  Firstly, is a legal document to confirm the authenticity of the marriage and the second is a civil marriage contract.

•   Just like at home, you will both need to prove you are free to get married. If you are single, divorced or widowed. This is done by signing a legal document on the day of the wedding.

•  Your Costa Rica wedding planner will request copies of your passports and personal information in order to compose the necessary legal documents for your marriage.
