***Melia Las Dunas Brides***

Recommended Posts

Hey all! Just wanted to let you all know I have posted photos from TTD and the wedding day (link under siggy) My photog was actually from the resort -- as many of you probably know there aren't any available for private hire in the region. His name was Alfredo, and he was AWESOME!

I am back, and married!

 

I will have my pro pics in three weeks, I'll post some at this moment and I will write a full detailed review of the wedding and the resort probably around the same time. If you have any questions in between, feel free to ask!

We have finalized our date (September 29) , our guests have booked (40) , and the t-shirts are being printed!!

 

Can anyone tell me what is included with the free wedding once we're down there? And what extra's or upgrades they did or reccomend.

 

We are flying Air Canada....anyone have issues with bringing the wedding dress/ tux's as carry ons?

 

THANX!!!

We are trying to plan a wedding for this resort in Spring 2010. We are between two dates at this time... April 18th and May 9th. I have been to the DR in may and it was very rainy,... anyone been to Cuba that late in May? We are taking a photography with us as I have heard so so reviews using resort photgrapher. What are the additional costs to the free wedding or things people should upgrade on? Thanks for your help. We are very excited and are looking forward to Spring :)

Thanks

I recommend upgrading to the Cuban Trio for some portion of the ceremony. They were AMAZING! Also, the private reception was wonderful!

Agreed! The Cuban trio was amazing! Our guests loved them. They are supposed to stay for one hour, but with the tips we gave, they stayed for the whole reception. I asked them to play songs I love and they did. They also dedicated a song for DH's parents, who celebrated their wedding anniversary two days before.

And yes, indeed, the private reception (in the snack bar near the pool) is wonderful!

    • 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.
