How long do you have to be in Cuba before your wedding?

Recommended Posts

I have been getting mixed information. Some places tell me you need to be in Cuba for 72 hours before your wedding, and other sources are telling me it needs to be 3 business days so if you arrive on a weekend it doesn't count.

 

Can anyone clarify?

 

I am arriving on a Sat. and we want to get married as early in the week as possible and were hoping for a Tuesday Wedding.

 

Thanks!

I was told by my WC at the resort that we did not have to be there any specific amount of time, it just had to be a day that the notary was there. We got there on Saturday at 1 AM and I got married on Wednesday at 4:00 (I chose Wednesday as my day) and my WC told me I could get married any day. She would know. Ask the WC at your resort, that is the best way to get the correct answer. I got married in Holguin, but I am pretty sure the rules would be the same in all of Cuba.

Thanks, the info I found online said 72 hours, and the WC said 3 business days, so that's why I was confused. I emailed her back to ask her to look into it to be sure. Why would some resorts have different rules?

Hey Jackobelle,

Our resort stipulates that you need to be in the country 3 days before the wedding, they did not mention anything about business days - I think it does depend on the resort, when I was looking into other resorts (ie in DR) some had the 3 business day requirement as well but I found out this was not a legal requirement there...I think you should be fine with 3 days before - maybe ask other brides from your resort what their experience has been.

I say go with whatever you WC says. You don't want to piss her off, avoid that at all costs, and just go with what she says. Are you wanting to get married before the 3 days? or are you just curious?

Really they say 72 hours (3 business days), but, most resorts want to have as many weddings as possible. And since most flights arrive saturday or sunday, most resorts don't mind if you get married right away on the Monday or Tuesday ( example we land Sunday, are getting married on Tuesday) -especially if you are staying a full week, or 2.

 

But defintely check with the WC. And if she says 3 working days, ask for a special arrangement!!

Thanks for all the advice. I did email her back and ask for special arrangements, and if she was sure it had to be 3 business days. She wrote back (she is actually excellent at quick replies!!) and said that it was the rule for 3 business days after arrival, which means 5 days, really for me, due to the Sat. arrival. My FI and I were really hoping to get married earlier on in the week, but I guess that is not possible. sad.gif

hmmm interesting!! I was told it was 3 days and that they were NOT required to be business days. At our resort, the notary does not work weekends. So we arrived on the 13th, got legally married on the 17th and had our symbolic ceremony on the 18th.

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
