We have not decided yet, we will find out this Saturday, Thank goodness!. I am super excited to just pick a place already. Finding a place seems to be the most stressful! Only because the last travel agents we have seen keep coming back with prices $1,500 and up not including taxes and I really wanted to keep it around $1,200 with tax.

Ohh so exciting! Which resorts are you looking at if you don't mind me asking! You should definitely be able to find one in Cuba for under 1300$. We got ours for under 1200$ including taxes! and we are going to Iberostar Laguna Azul in May!

I went to the Iberostar Laguna Azule last August, beautiful hotel!

 

At this point I am fairly easy going as long as it's a hotel that is kept up well/not  run down and I would really like a 5 star hotel as hotels are a little differnt in Cuba but I really like the the Melia Las Dunas hotel my parents went there and loved it! and I think its beautiful but its a little far for any kind of day trips and my FI loves RIU hotels (right next to yours)

Yeah I looked at the Melia Las Dunas... They seem to do an amazing job with weddings and I would have liked to have it there, but we decided its just too far removed from anything else. A lot of our guests haven't been to Cuba before so I wanted to be close to Havana. The Playa Pesquero in Holguin is also a great resort for weddings! We were there two years ago and just loved it! Were thinking of going there, but eventually decided Varadero was where we wanted to go... My FI hasn't been to Varadero and we wanted to Havana. I am sure which ever one you choose will be amazing! We have a Cuba thread.. it says its for Iberostar Laguna Azul brides but we really have all brides from Cuba lol cause there aren't many of us if you're looking for a Cuba thread!

    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah
