  1. To all of the Laguna Azul Brides; Did anyone have guests coming to the hotel for the wedding on a day pass? If they did or maybe Yahimara has given others this information; how late were those guests able to stay at the resort? I want to make sure they are able to stay late at night for dancing and celebrations, and don't want to pay $50 a person for a day pass and they will have to leave right after dinner. Has anyone had any experience with this?
  2. Has anyone heard from Yahimara lately? I'm assuming she's very busy since there are many weddings going on right now and I'm used to e-mails taking forever to come from Cuba but it has been 3 weeks and I have not heard a response.

I believe if you are doing a symbolic ceremony some hotels may do it, but it would depend on the wedding coordinator. I could be wrong but I believe the issue you are going to have is that to have a legal civil ceremony you will need the notary to perform the ceremony and in Varadero there are two and they work Mon-Fri.
  4. Wow! Doesn't that just bring a tear to your eye, that has got to be the most romantic thing you've ever heard! (Note Sarcasm) Has anyone asked Yahimara how she would feel about providing a script of wedding vows to say to make the ceremony a little less "legal"and like you're reading about traffic tickets and a little more romantic?
  5. If you are wanting a Father Daughter dance in Spanish you could be very traditional and go with Julio Iglasias De Niña A Mujer YouTube - Julio Iglesias - De Niña A Mujer The next one is a Marc Anthony song (God I love him) it is not specifically in Spanish but is also an idea "My Baby You" YouTube - Marc Anthony - My Baby You with lyrics Hope those help.
  6. There is a spanish version of "A Song For Mama" by Boyz 2 Men YouTube - B2M song for mama-spanish version
  7. I'm torn between two songs; I Need You by Marc Anthony YouTube - I need you, I love you - Marc Anthony With Lyrics Or By You Side by Sade YouTube - Sade By your side I love them both although By Your Side would be from the Bride's perspective and I Need You from the groom's perspective I suppose.
  8. I found the name of the store in Chinatown Toronto; it is called B & J Trading and the address is 378 Spadina. They had some a couple of weeks ago, I'm hoping for your sake they still have them. If it is close to your work it will be worthwhile looking.
  9. I can not remember the exact name of the shop (something trading of course like several shops in Chinatown). It is on Spadina, west side, north of Dundas I just can't remember if it was one or two blocks north. On my way to work tomorrow I will keep my eye open and double check.
  10. I notice you live in Ontario, do you live in the GTA? I was in Chinatown the other day looking for fans and there was a shop close to Kesington market that had some, and I've noticed that sometimes Michael's has them.
  11. I have also ordered chair sashes and bows in aqua, I found a deal on another website that ships to Canada and the sashes work out to 0.75 each. I don't think I could have even gotten the fabric for them that cheap. I am taking down a lot of my decorations and leaving them there (many will be dollar store purchases, and Michael's using their 40% off coupons). Here is the website I used for my organza chair bows; tablecloths Table Linens Chair Covers Sashes I ordered 35, I was thinking after the ceremony mybe they could be brought into the restaurant and used there as well.
  12. I am also a ILA Varadero bride. I have found myself in a splurge/save situation. I am having a late ceremony (6:30pm) and am paying an extra $150 for it since it is outside the notary hours, the trade off is that I will have a later seating for dinner (8:30pm) which is free (where you would have to pay a fee for dinner during prime time). The benefit of the later seating is that by the time dinner is finished the disco should be open so we do not have to pay for a private reception............ therefore after this long winded explanation I will pay for lobster for my guests who choose to have it. Maybe you can find a way to save money somewhere else to splurge on your guests for lobster dinner?

  14. That is a beautiful ring. I would love to find something similar for my FI.
  15. Thank you so much for the threads, I did a search but I guess I didn't have the right keywords. This helps.
