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.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
