Wedding Details!

What details should a bride keep in mind, when having a wedding at “our little slice of paradise” (Hilton Papagayo)?

“At Hilton Papagayo we do not only specialize in weddings, but also provide ample advice for those in need….GROOMS! I always tell the groom …if she asks for your opinion regarding wedding details, get involved (because you care)…but not too involved. Remember, it’s her day and that is all that matters!” Andre – Catering and Event Manager
