Newbie getting married in Cuba!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

My name is Emily and my FH and I are getting married in Cuba in October, 2009.

 

I thought I had my heart seat on getting married at the Paradisus Rio de Oro, but now I'm thinking of getting married at the Melia Las Dunas. I am still waiting for some quotes to get back to me, but at this point I think we'll be basing our decision on price.

 

My biggest concern right now is getting the information out to people. I have started a website, but there's not much on it right now as we haven't yet booked our trip. FH and I can only afford to put deposits down for 10 people, we honestly didn't think we'd get anymore than that, but it looks like lots more people want to come.

 

I don't know if I should send invites/STD out now, before we have trip information, or if I should wait until we have pricing? AS I understand it, they can only hold the price for 7 days and after that it might go up. I'm concerned that people won't have enough time to put a deposit down? Any advice?

Welcome to the Forum! I would send out an email as soon as you get your booking information - a STD might take too long. If you send them an email and direct them to your website, that might be a good way to do it. Plus it will save you the cost of doing paper STD's!

I think that's what I will do. I will send out an evite and direct them to our website and tell them to stay posted for travel details. Once I have the travel information I will post it on the website for everyone.

 

Thanks everyone!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
