    OK so this is starting to get really annoying. The WC at the resort said that it had to be 3 business days because the notary didn't work on weekends. (The Wednesday is already taken so I would have to have the Thursday.) I emailed the Canadian Cuban consulate and asked if it was 3 days in Cuba or 3 business days, they wrote back saying that I had to be in Cuba 72 hours before getting married. That's it. What should I do? The WC seems so sure it has to be business days and said she couldn't make an exception because those were the rules. I told her I'd take the Thursday. It's not terrible, but that leaves us only Friday after the wedding because we leave on Sat.

      <3 sheesh.. i think u should express that u have spoken to the consolate and said that u only had to be there 72 hrs before... just say that u would like more time after the wedding in cuba and to reconsider... maybe she will change it for you?

        I really don't think you should tell your WC about talking to the consulate. Seriously you do not want to piss her off, your whole wedding is in her hands, you want to be nothing but nice to her. I say just get married on the Thursday and it will be perfect and you still have a whole day after the wedding before you leave, it sounds great to me.

        This is just my opinion, but your WC can either make or break your day, so why would you want to chance making her mad?

          Our wedding was on the 18th and our flight home was on the 20th, so we only had one day after our wedding as well to be newlyweds at the resort. My DH is a teacher so we were limited to one week on his spring break to get married. It's not ideal, but it still worked out just fine...try not to stress about it!!

            Thanks everyone, I confirmed for the Thursday, it is not ideal, but I really don't want to make a fuss about it. You are right, the WC has the whole day in her hands so I don't want to piss her off! I am sure it will be wonderful either way...and I guess getting married earlier in the week has its downsides too. With all our friends & family there we wouldn't get much privacy after the wedding anyway! So I guess that means we will have to go on a honeymoon afterwards!

              That was my thinking too...we are hoping to go to Europe next summer for our honeymoon...although it's awhile after our wedding, it gives us (mostly me LOL) something to plan and look forward to...

              Everything will be great - don't worry!!

                  Jax - Only 5 days!!!!! :) I'll be thinking of you, and can't wait to hear all about it! :)

                  Thanks everyone for the advice - I am feeling better about it, I know it will work out fine.

                  I am also considering myself VERY lucky with everything that those poor Mexico brides are dealing with now! My heart goes out to them.
