I have been to Cuba twice and loved both holidays however, the hotels are not up to the standard of AS and are very dated. The beaches are beautiful and people are friendly. I just couldn't picture my wedding with old fashioned decor and furniture. Maybe that is not an issue for you?
Money is a missive issue however and it kills me to think of the money it is costing for the so called "cheaper option". We have helped this issue slightly by not having a private reception, only going for white decor of the location and sticking to standard things like flowers etc.
Let me know if you see any hotels elsewhere that you love. I would be interested to look myself!
I am sure it will all work out fine for you Katie.
Also, to add to the stress, i have just found out that the shop i have bought my dress from has gone into liquidation! I have lost the money I have paid for the dress but luckily, the designer is still on track to make it as I was having made to measure anyway. i just need to find the money again!!!
AS would let us downgrade our package, that's not a problem. our problem is that the packages are soooo expensive for what is actually included - we thought we'd get more for our money and now can't afford the package and all the extras.
we're still looking around, but atm our fav is Ocean Coral by H10 (look on the first Choice website). i think you'd like it - modern looking and new...rooms look good too. have a look and let me know what you think!
good luck with your dress! at least you should get it cheaper now if you're buying it direct and cutting out the middle man!
