    Hey guys I need a bit of help. My fiance and I have finally set a date for our wedding (FINALLY), but now I am abit worried if we CAN get married on the date we want. We want to get married on October 10th, 2010 (10.10.10) but it's a Sunday. I know when we had looked into afew different destinations that was a problem because you couldn't get married on a Sunday. I have looked all over the place and I can't find any info regarding this so I am HOPING there are no laws in Cuba saying you can't get married on a Sunday, but I want to make sure. I thought here would be the BEST place to find out..If anyone could help me out with this that would be great!

      Are you getting married in Jamaica or Cuba? You post says Cuba, but your profile says JA... I am pretty sure you can't in JA, but dont' know about Cuba. Your best bet is to contact your resort.

        You will definitely find your answers here! I know the company I am using will do Sunday weddings in Jamaica (legal and symbolic)...but if you search this forum, you will be sure to find more details. Good luck getting your date!!

          Hi, sorry I know my details say Jamaica but that was our first choice, but since then have changed to Cuba to make it more afordable for some family members who WERENT able to make it to Jamaica. I guess I should probably change that eh? hahaha Sorry for the confusion!!

              Hey, I am not 100% sure - but I don't think our resort would do legal weddings on Sunday, perhaps you could do a symbolic ceremony though and do the legal stuff at home. Also, most of the trips are a week long and will be arriving on Sat or Sunday...you're supposed to be there for 3 days before you get married (legally, I have heard of some brides doing it in less time but it could be really hard to arrange). I think that's a pretty sweet wedding date...but are you 100% that it must be that day? If so, you might be able to make it work, some of the tour providers leave on Mondays...might be able to swing it! Good luck :), have you decided on a location in Cuba yet?

                Being there for afew days before the wedding isn't a concern for me..I plan on being there for awhile...just that date is really important to my fiance. Like its so important that if we can't legally get married on that date while in Cuba, then he wants to do a symbolic ceremony or vow renewal on that date and get married before we leave or something. We haven't finalized on a resort yet but I was just wondering about the laws for Cuba itself because I know when we looked into Jamaica, legally you couldn't get married on a sunday.

                  Don't quote me on this - but I THINK that legal weddings are only done from Monday to Friday.

                  Double check with your resort, or check what it says on the Cuban Embassy website. Contact the Cuban consulate, they will know.

                    We were told that the notary in Cuba perform weddings from Monday-Friday, but you can request to have them work on the weekends for an additional fee of $150. There is no guarantee that they'll accept your request, but its an option. Contact melissa@solmeliacuba.ca she'll know all the details. She's the girl who books all the weddings at the Melia/Paradisus resorts in Cuba. Good luck!
