ILA Brides, what do you have planned so far for your big day?

Recommended Posts

Maybe it is 15CUC/person and if you want lobster it is an additional 18CUC/person on top of the 15CUC if you dine at 6:30. And If you dine at 8:30 it is only 15CUC for those eating off the proposed menu, and only 18CUC for lobster...could that be right?

I'm confused! Does anyone have the clear answers to this? I've emailed Yahimara so many times with this, I think we are confusing each other.

 

Also Yahimara told me that the cake cannot be served after the ceremony. There is a list of hor dourves to choose from and it is 10CUC/person if you want to serve something with the champagne.

Ok so I emailed Yahimara and questioned her about the private dinner at 8:30 since her email yesterday stated that there was a charge but one of her previous emails she sent when I first contacted her stated that it was free. She is now saying that it is free depending on how many guests, so now I'm waiting to confirm with her what is meant by that. Nothing seems to be clear and if I didn't bring up the previous email, she wouldn't have said anything. Check and re-check all of your email correspondence, pricing seems to change depending on the day.

 

Another thing that bothers me is that when I confirmed with her that the wedding package is 700CUC, she responded that the prices will be going up and she doesn't have them right now but it is no longer 700 CUC and I should expect to pay more. I emailed her back and stated that I booked my ceremony before this price increase so I shouldn't have to pay more and she then said that it was ok and I would get it for 700CUC. Ladies make sure you follow up with her, like I said before you don't want to get to Cuba and be presented with a bill that has all these extra charges!

Barrierunner it looks like we are going through the same thing. In our early emails from Sept Yahimara stated the 8:30 private dinner was free, and in the email I got yesterday she is now saying there is a charge. I sent her a copy of the earlier email where she said it was free and now I am waiting to hear back from her.

 

In the early emails I was also quoted 700CUC for the ceremony so this is something else I am going to have to clarify with her. Like you said, the last thing any of us want is to get down there and be bombarded with all these 'extra' fees.

 

It's not okay to keep adding hidden costs to things, so we all need to make sure we bring all copies of any correspondance we have with the resort.

Hi, I finally heard back and the dinner is free at 8:30. We only have to pay 18CUC/person for the lobster. Thank goodness that is finally clear! ;-)

How is everyone else doing with their planning?

Wow, all this price confusion would drive me crazy! Ladies, you're so patient!! This kind of thing is normal though...I used to live in the Dominican Republic and the same kind of thing happened there. It's great advice to hang onto all your emails and even print them off and bring them in a binder with you to the resort so that you have a leg to stand on in case there are any discrepencies in the prices!

Does anyone know how many people can be seated at the tables for dinner? We're going through a trial seating plan and we weren't sure of the numbers at each table, and if they are round or rectangle.

 

Also, has anyone heard what colours they have available for chair sashes etc?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
