    You mention bringing the seating plan, but did you know before hand how the tables were going to be set up? It makes a difference if they are tables of 6, 8, 10, round, one long rectangle, etc.
    We knew that the tables in the steakhouse sat 4 and that they would be pushed together to create bigger tables. We wanted big square tables (4 smaller tables pushed together) but it didn't happen. They had set them up as long rectangular tables, ours varied from 7 to 10 people per tables. Round tables are not an option, at the steakhouse anyway.

      Hi, loved your review. Very informative. How can I see your pics? I m really new at this and I'm not sure where to start? I'am thinking of doing a symbolic ceremony next year in June and will be e-mailing the wedding co-ordinator soon.

        Hi RonNMel, I think I read that you were going to have a symbolic ceremony? Any information on that would be really appreciated. I want the symbolic ceremony to look as authentic as poosible.

          I'd love to help you, but I don't know that much about it. Here is what I do know:

          We will get married here before we leave.

          Over there the symbolic ceremony will be performed by Yahimara, the wedding coordinator.

          She had giving us the option of doing a RENEWAL of VOWS instead, which would have meant that a lawyer would have performed the ceremony. We still would have gotten legally married here. If you want it to be as authentic as possible, that might be a better option. It's only slightly more expensive than symbolic (100cuc more), and requires much less paper than actually getting married there. I think all you need is your wedding certificate.

           

          Hope that helps!

            RonNMel, thank yo so much for your repsonse. Yes, that information is very helpful! I will e-mail Yahimara and see what information she can send me. I'm having a diffcult time locating an e-mail address for her. Do you by any chance have it? Again, thank you. This forum is fantastic! I'm so nervous about this hotel because there are a few reviews on trip advisor that are negative. I'm hoping that this forum with ease my nerves about it. It would be great to see some pics of people who've already gotten married there. Anyone have any suggestions on where I can see some? Thanks!

              Yahimara's email:

               

              asis2comercial@laguna.co.cu  

               

              As for pictures, check the reviews and PM the brides who have already been married there, they might be able to help you.

                    For the reception - was the steakhouse excellent? Or what could you recommend? As far as decorations go - would you suggest bringing your own? Thanks!!!
