***Iberostar Laguna Azul Brides***

Recommended Posts

We were originally thinking about getting married at the Iberostar Varadero, but from the moment we saw pictures of the ILA, we KNEW that THIS was truly the place for us. We saw it as the perfect blend of standard Cuban resort bungalow architecture, and North American high rise hotel feel.

 

My fiancee fell in love with the pool (especially the waterfall and jacuzzi atop the middle rock island). And I can't wait to check out the disco. LOL!! What can I say? I love to dance hahaha.

 

We've only been members of this forum for a couple of days, but already it's been quite a bit of help.

 

We can't wait to see pictures of the first wedding there. (Yahimara, the ILA wedding coordinator, has said she'd send some to us.)

 

We also can't wait to start "the talks" with a travel agent, to really get the ball rolling.

I think I may have finally made my decision... lol We had originally planned on a Disney wedding, but couldn't travel in February, and with Disney being crazy in March/April, we decided caribbean instead, and I think this may be the resort for us :) It's gorgeous!

If Disney weddings weren't so darn expensive, we might have done it there. LOVE Disney, the attractions, the atmosphere. Though I think for a wedding week, the more relaxed atmosphere of the beach might be more appropriate. And yes, the Laguna Azul is so gorgeous!!

Disney is gorgeous, and the weddings are absolutely beautiful, but the price is outrageous compared to the caribbean! It's about $5000 for the ceremony, plus about $100 a plate for the reception, and you're limited to 23 guests, and it's only $500 at ILA, that's 10x less! Almost blew my mind when I figured that out last night lol

hello all ILA BRides:)

 

I am so excited that I finally found a forum with brides that are getting married at ILA. Ive changed my mind so many time about the location but FINALLY this is the ONE!!

 

All your responses have been very helpful so far and have answered so many questions for me.

 

I was wondering there are a lot of brides getting married MAY 2010. How early did you speak with WC at the resort? and book a wedding date and time?

 

Im getting married MAY 2011 and not sure if now is to early to email and set a date?

 

congrats to everyone again and thanks

Congrats on picking your resort! I think this is such a beautiful place and can't wait to get married there! We're getting married May 2010, and we booked the date with the WC in August, and booked our flights mid Sept. I think you have some time if you wanted to wait :-)

Congrats!

We just booked the ceremony with the WC and are getting married in July 2010. We are holding off on booking flights until the prices decrease after March. You have plenty of time but it doesn't hurt to secure the date and time. :)

Congratulations!

I too am planning on getting married at ILA in May 2011 (early May). We have already started emailing the WC just to get general information. She is suppose to send us pictures once the first wedding has happened (should be soon, I believe it's end of November).

I know that prices for flights and stuff are not out before April 2010, so can't book that yet. As for booking the actual wedding date with the resort though, I'm not sure if we can do this before or if we need to wait for an official reservation.


Good luck with your planning!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
