2013 & 2014 Iberostar Laguna Azul, Cuba Brides!

Recommended Posts

I am getting married at the ILA as well. Jan 25 2014. I am bringing decorations. I have also requested the palapas and we are going to have our dance on the beach. I'm going to bring some small stand up lanterns for the tables and some chinese lanterns to hang. I'm planning on hanging those for the dinner set up.  I am also bringing sparklers with little notes attached to them, bubbles and maybe even candy for a small candy bar. There are some other things in the works but just in the beginning stages of planning all of that. I have heard reviews that you don't always get your decorations back so don't bring anything you aren't willing to part with.
Congrats sounds perfect! Couldnt you just put them in your checked bags?? Might be worth checking into!

Hey guys. So my decision to do sparklers was based on previous accounts of people bringing them on a plane. I'm not sure how they got around this but I have checked the TSA website and they are not permitted. Looks like I will keep them for the AHR :( I was really looking forward to having them down there. What can ya do. 

 

CSHO I did my save the dates the same way through vista print. It's a great inexpensive option. Good job!

 

These are the ones we made up

Wish lanterns are so pretty. That's too bad you couldn't bring them. :(

 

I was looking for an alternative to the traditional guest book.....I think I found it today. Let me know what you guys think. I'm so excited about it.

Oh those are super cute!

 

I know a girl who just brought the sparklers in her checked baggage and no one said anything to her. I just would be worried if I got caught with them that I'd get a fine and not allowed on the plane. I really wanted them too but am not sure I want to take the chance on it. In other countries like DR and Mexico you can purchase them there, but unfortunately in Cuba I don't think its an option :(

 

and Jolene -its a regulation in Cuba that won't allow the resorts to do the wish laterns. I can kind of see it as there are a lot of palapas type things on the beaches and resorts and what if something happened and something caught fire.

This is exactly what my FI and I are thinking of doing! We love doing puzzles and thought it would be a great way to have fun and have use an engagement photo! I want to put it together when I get home and then put it in a double sided glass frame!

Your save the dates turned out great Alisha!  Where did you find the puzzle?  I was wanted to do the same sort of thing possible.. a puzzle of the "map" of Varadero, but the one I found was over $100.

I wanted to bring them as well... but I am pretty sure its illegal to bring them on the plane as they are flammable...

Yes I was thinking I could have someone gather them up. Great idea!!!

Hey Kay. How are you doing? 

 

Try Etsy. You can get regular puzzle pieces for a good price. The wood ones are very expensive. There are sites as well where you can take a picture of yourselves and turn it into a puzzle and have everyone sign or leave a msg on the backside that is blank. I also loved the idea of people signing or leaving a msg on a Jenga piece. I might do that instead. It's bad when I have too many options! lol 

 

Hope all is well Kay talk soon xo

    • 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.
