Holguin wedding!!

Recommended Posts

Hi all, my wedding plans fell through (was planning to do something at Marea del Portillo but sunwing has proven to be a nightmare to deal with and I refuse to deal with them any further).  I'm wanting to have a wedding at one of the Holguin resorts that have wedding packages (Playa Pesquero or Playa Costa Verde).  The problem is that a number of our guests will not be able to afford the few hundred dollars extra to stay at these resorts.  So I have two questions for those who have had wedding experience with either of these resorts:


1. how does pricing work if you don't meet the 16-20 person minimum for the wedding packages?

2. how does pricing work for those coming from other resorts? 


If it helps, we're hoping for an April 18, 2011 wedding.  I also have a few more general questions about either resorts:


1. how is their vegetarian food?

2. do you get to choose the menu for the reception?

3. do they allow you to bring your own photographer? 


thanks for any advice!

I'm getting married on April 16, 2011 at Sol Rio De Luna Y Mares in Guardalavaca (not too far from Holguin),  I'm bringing my own photographer, if you end up booking your wedding for April 18th we can share a photographer if you interested (will save u money).  I cannot answer all your questions but you should talk to your travel agent, they should get you all that info.

Hi , I see that your wedding has passed ( hope it was amazing!) but if any future brides are wondering about this, I traveled to Sol Rio de Luna y Mares in January 2011 and I eat no red meat ( only chicken and fish) but I found there to be much selection even if you were a complete vegetarian. I`m not fussy about food but there was a wide selection of vegetables, fruits, pastas and other meals that a vegetarian could eat and be satisfied. I `ve been to Varadero in the past and had a hard time finding food, but in Holguin it was never a problem. Hope this helps someone!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
