    I just got this email from my WC. The price for our actual wedding just went up from 350 CUC to 500 CUC AFTER we have been booked for months! Here is the email. What should we do? Is it worth fighting or is it a lost cause? I was also wondering if any other Cuba brides had a similar situation as according to her email it is the new "law" in Cuba.

    Hello:



    I received a communication from the Notary office just a few minutes ago, they received a new regulation and the price of the weddings has changed, according to that we are force to change the price of our wedding package, please check the attachment in order to know it, I will need you let us know if you are agree to pay this new price or if you want to cancel your wedding reservation, we will be waiting for your news. We are really sorry about it but the is a new law about this service and we can not do anything about it, it will be applicable for all the wedding to be celebrate since today it does not matter when it was booked.

    Please let me know as soon as possible.



    I will be waiting fro your news.



    Have a nice day!!

        We didn't pay anything for our notary because we had a certain amount of guests so the hotel absorbed the price. Did you WC tell you that the hotel offered a free package like that? If you have 44 guests I would assume you more than qualify as we only had 17 total!!

        Most resorts have special packages - and if yours doesn't and you're not completely set on that particular resort, you might want to look into other resorts that WILL absorb the cost of your wedding and the notary because that's a steep price, even in CUC!!

        Good luck! xo

          Thanks for the information. We are already paying quite a big amount for our wedding package, so hopefully they'll absorb the cost.

            how frusterating! I would try to see if there is anything they can do to help cover even some of the cost considering you have been booked for months. Keep us posted on how it turns out and good luck

              It is frustration! Especially since we have been booked for so long with such a large group! We might just switch to a symbolic ceremony. My FI's uncle is coming and he is a minister so we are going to ask him to marry us there and we will just sign the papers in Canada, or however he tells us we have to do it. I wonder what the hotel will charge for a symbolic ceremony. I don't want to ask the WC until we know his uncle is willing to do it.

                    I would be tempted to do the symbolic ceremony and get actually legally married just before you go. As for the notary changing the price, they will not do anything should you complain. If the change affects everyone getting married from here on, they will probably say there is nothing they can do!

                      Yeah, there is nothing that can be done. We have a relative who is coming and he is a minister so he is going to marry us in Cuba and we will just sin the paperwork in Canada to make it legal. We should have thought of that before, as it makes it more special for us anyway to have him marry us. So I guess problem solved!
