    You can probably negotiate the time of getting married when you arrive there. $$ talk :)

    Please note that if your guests are staying at different resorts, they will have to purchase a day pass to enter your hotel. That can be anywhere from $70-250pp.

      First off... as the previous posts said... chill -- the meltdown you are having is a result of the disappointment you feel from your family... the destination will be fine.

      Consider Varadero -- lots of flights to and from from both the east and west.

      Adults only resort to consider -- Melia Las Antillas... i have tons of pix... you can see a site visit review in this cuba section.. i'll bump it for you.

      Let us know which resorts you are considering, as many of us have been to cuba multiple times, and will be able to provide you feedback ....

      Have you found a travel agent? if you have and he/she is good, you should feel a lot more comfortable with the whole thing.

      Also, in terms of the time of day... I read somewhere that the cost for a ceremony outside the regular times is $150 CUC... I'll see if I can find that for you...

      Happy planning!

        We were told that the Notary in Cuba have made exceptions and preformed a weekend wedding, but there would be an additional cost of $150.00 CUC. So that might be an option for you if you want to keep your date the same. I can just imagine the stress you must be under right now, but I'm sure it will all work out for you. Best of luck!

          cuba is a stunning place for a wedding and having stayed in Varadero previously I agree that it something for all ages.......
          The Iberostar Varadero is a stunnign resort and I have seen some gorgeous pics on here.
          Good Luck with your planning
