I am so sorry that I never replied to this. I was out of commission for a while there with really bad morning sickness.

We had 52 people and not one person complained about a thing. There was more than enough stuff to do and we were all busy all the time. Good busy though :)

Tell me what you are looking for and I will tell you if they offer it there :) There is a PP group on facebook, if you want to check it out. Just a thought.

We've finally decided on Cuba too!! We've also decided to stay in Varadero as its the only spot that has any night life really. We've been taking salsa lessons the past year and would like to put them to use. smile29.gif

 

Do any of you ladies have a travel agent you could recommend for Cuba? There are questions I need answered about having a religious ceremony etx which a regular TA can't answer.

We got a really good rate from SellOffVacations.com. They guarantee to beat any rate so we shopped around and then went there. We also wanted a lower deposit which they were able to get us as we didn't want our guests having to come up with $300 to get the lowest rate within the 5 days and our guests get $100 off if they book by a certain date.

we just went to the travel show this weekend here in Toronto and a rep. was there from Paradisus Varadero. This resort looks amazing and the rep. was so very helpful. We're booking with them! YAY!

 

Well the rep. was from Sol Melia and we talked abut all their resorts. If you are looking for adults only I would definitely tell you to look at the Paradisus Del Mar in Varadero!!!

My FI and I were originally looking at Huatulco, MX but are now also seriously considering Cuba.

 

I've heard the food is less than awesome? Anyone have an opinion?

 

We're looking for AI, children allowed, pool bar, private reception, and a ceremony are where we can wear shoes (possibly by a pool).

 

Suggestions?

 

p.s. I'm thrilled that someone started this thread!

well Cuba is not known for their food. smile27.gif

 

But it depends on what kind of eater you are. I personally have been to Cuba 4 times and have never had a problem with the food. But I LOVE seafood, which is in almost every dish they serve in one form or another, so if you don't like seafood you may be limited.

 

Overall I would say that if you're not a picky eater back home then you'll be happy with the food in Cuba. It's definitely not gourmet, it doesn't compare to 5 star food in Europe, but its not bad food. The majority of people that I personally have seen unhappy with the Cuban food were also picky eaters back home.

 

I have been dealing with TA Linsday on here and she has been nothing short of amazing! Send her a message and she'll help you find the right resort. With her help and some research of our own FH and I have decided on Paradisus Varadero.

 

P.S go and look on tripadvisor too for reviews of resorts in Cuba.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
