***Iberostar Laguna Azul Brides***

Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies!

 

I thought I'd start a thread all about the Laguna Azul so that we can help each other out. The delay of the opening of the hotel makes me nervous, but its been posted that it will be 100% fully operational as of September 3, 2009 (yay for my May 2010 wedding LOL)

 

How have you made out with contacting the wedding co-ordinator? How far along are you with your planning!

 

I'll check my wedding information tonight and see what I can post in terms of their wedding package to help other brides if they'd like to choose this resort.

Hey Paulsgirl. My FI and I are torn between this resort and the Melia Varadero. My TA is pushing me away from this resort simply because it is brand new and they may not have all of the kinks of being so new worked out. We are also in May (the 18th) When is your date? If you don't mind me asking, what rates did you guys get? Any info/photos you have on this resort would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, I'm currently booked at Dreams Tulum in Mexico but having serious second thoughts and leaning towards Iberostar Laguna Azul instead. I'd be really interested in any contact information for the hotel/wedding coordinator that you've been able to find!

Thanks :)

I just heard back from the resort and they included the attached rates/information about their "renewal of vows" package. Perhaps they sent me this because I asked for a symbolic ceremony - I'm not sure if there is a second/different wedding package available.

I also sent off a bunch of questions back to the coordinator and will let everyone know the answers as soon as I hear back.

I was finally able to dig up the wedding package that Maydelin at the Laguna Azul sent me :)

 

The email address to reach Maydelin (at least the one she sent me) is comercial.lagunaazul@playaalamedavaradero.co.cu

 

Some other info she told me:

- You can reserve a private a la carte after 8:30pm for a private reception for $150 CUC per hour

- If you'd like an earlier dinner, you can reserve the beach, poolside or a la carte for a private reception for $150.00 CUC per hour (this includes beach/poolside decorations) ***We're Doing a Poolside***

- At the current time, the hotel does not have a pricelist for extra bridesmaid flowers, decorations, etc (this will hopefully be released once the hotel opens September 1st)

- For $18 CUC per person, you can upgrade the dinner meal included in the wedding package to lobster (this is only charged for the guests that want lobster)

Thanks so much Clarisse! I was also not able to open them...gotta get posting too! I am so torn about this hotel...I think it would be amazing to be in a brand new hotel but am weary of all the problems they have been having. My TA only got one quote from Sunwing and said a lot of carriers won't quote this hotel right now. Anyone else going through the same thing?

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • 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!
