    Hi Julie,

    Do you remember - how far is Playa Pesquero from Guardalavaca?

    I will be shooting 2 wedding in Holguin during the same week in May - one at the Paradisus Rio De Oro (where I shot before) and one at the Playa Pesquero.

    I will be also doing 2 "Trash the Dress" sessions.

    I will be staying at Playa Pesquero, but I want to shoot the "Trash the Dress" session in Guardalavaca for the couple from the Paradisus Rio De Oro.

    Thank you,

      Just so you are aware, a few of my girlfriends were in Cuba ent Castro announced he was stepping down. They had no problems what so ever.

      For those that aren't aware, for us Canadians going to Cuba is not a big deal. Most people go every year without incidents. :)

        Hi Julie...I have visited Holguin twice and both times were amazing. The Brisas Guardalavaca and Playa Costa Verde were both nice resorts. The first one was my favorite out of the two. We are also thinking of Holguin or Cayo Coca for our destination.

          Well I know that this forum has a lot of Americans who are unable to experience the Cuban hospitality but my FI and I have been there twice before and we are not getting married there in February.

          I love it. The hospitality is genuine and the resorts are wonderful. The oceans are beautiful and less crowded like places I have been like Mexico! Very romantic and a lot of history to be seen!

          I suggest it and agree with everything that 'aimee' had to say!

          If you want any other information please feel free to email me or message me as I love to talk CUBA!

          Good Luck!

              Hello girls, I read something and am a little nervous. Is there a problem with having your sister as your MOH in Cuba? Has anybody ever had a problem with this or dealt with something similar? I have already asked her and I would hate to have to tell her different now? Please help

                There's isn't really a problem with having your sister has MOH except for the fact that she won't be able to be your witness for the marriage documents. You can't have blood relatives of either person sign as your witness.

                You can still have her as your MOH, you'll just have to find someone else to sign as witness in her place.

                  I was going to say the same thing. My sister was my MOH, but one of my BM's was a witness because relatives can not be witnesses. So, just ask someone else to sign your wedding certificate for you.

                    There are a lot of Americans in Cuba as well. They usually fly from Mexico or Canada. They just have to ask the customs officers not to stamp their passport :)
