A True Gem!
Let me start off by saying hiring Bliss Weddings was the best thing I ever did! Planning a destination wedding from Virginia and never having been to Costa Rica I don't think this would have been possible at least without completely loosing my mind in the process. From the moment I reached out to her she was super responsive and felt like an instant friend. I had done a lot of research and spoken with other wedding coordinators and none of them made me feel like my wedding was my own. Marianne listened carefully, had amazing input on my ideas, and she kept me up to date on all the details, along with amazing suggestions for vendors. She is a gem to work with! Throughout the entire process all our friends and family kept asking me how I was so calm including the day of and I truly felt I had nothing to worry about, I trusted Marianne and her team would make my vision come to life and and she did exactly that and more! Our day was so perfect!!! Thank you!Sent on 05/12/2019

Responsible and supportive
Marianne and her team were great! Marianne was very responsive and helpful in creating my dream wedding leading up to the big day. I am not a planner nor did I really have any solid ideas but she helped me and keep things simple for me. She also tried to help me cut costs as much as possible but also educated me on what the costs and items would provide for the big day. I was very happy I went with Marianne as my day was perfect and stress free!Sent on 03/02/2019
