    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?

    38 people plus bride and groom coming to Cuba!

      Welcome, my advice would to send out STD or an email with estimated prices and booking dead lines. All the best!

                    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!
