    Hi we just booked our wedding for feb/10 @ Melia Las Dunas. Does anyone have any advise for us on where to have the wedding (beach,etc), where to have the reception (15-20 people), photographers...

    Any tips on things i should look out for or talk to the wedding coordinatoe about would be greatly appreciated!

    We are very excited. The resort looks fabulous!!

      Congrats Erin! MLD is an AMAZING resort, and they are fantastic at hosting amazing weddings.

      Make sure to poke into the MLD Brides Thread, as all of the MLD associated links are on there-- also there is a great Facebook group called "Melia LAs Dunas Brides" and it has lots of great reviews, etc.

      There are also PLENTLY of us on here, so if you have any questions... just let us know.

        Hi ErinS!

        Does the MLD seem fully booked for Feb-March 2010 ?
        We are not decided yet on a date and resort but MLD is one of the option

        Thanks!

          I don't think it's fully booked but it's probably better to book late feb or early march b/c the planes looked pretty full mid feb....but it's best to ask the travel agent I think.

          Good luck!

            Thanks, but my question refers to wedding celebration....do they accept to celebrate a maximum of wedding per day? (probably)

              Your first step is going to be filling out a wedding request form-- You can find this at solemeliacuba.com under the wedding tab. It is located on the right hand side under "forms."

              Your best bet for getting answers and reserving your preferred date would be to contact Melissa (the Melia rep for Canada) her e-mail address is melissa@solmeliacuba.com. She is great at answering most questions you have, and acts as a sort of second WC-- she will be who you talk to until you arrive and meet Maria Elena (the WC at MLD)

              Typically they allow 3-4 ceremonies per day-- on average they do 18/week (as they don't normally do weekends due to constraints with the notary)

              With that in mind, DH and I wanted to get married on Jue 30th (our 5 year anniversary) but were told that they already had booked up all their spots for that day. I asked them if there was anything that we could do, as it was important to us. Initially we made back-up plans for July 1st, but Melissa contacted me and mentioned that they would make an exception for us and allow the ceremony to occur at 6pm. :)

              Ask and-- 99% of the time-- thou shalt receive.

              Talk with Melissa-- she will be your go-to girl, and should be able to settle your mind.
