Hey ladies....just an FYI for Cuba Brides....I've hired a company in Cuba to attend at the resort to decorate the ceremony area as well as the reception area...they cover everything from linens, drapery and flowers to match your colours.  The cost is fairly reasonable given what they do.  They are primarily out of Havana but will travel to Varadero for a fee. Here is a link to their website:  http://www.airedefiestacuba.com/en and they are also on Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/airedefiestacuba . I'm very excited!!!  Only 10 days before we board our flight :-)
Lydia how did you contact them? I emailed them and messaged them on Facebook and never heard back from them, because I wanted to look into using them, but after I never heard from them from either email or facebook I was a little put off.

Lydia - that stuff looks great. I can't wait to see what your set up will look like. The countdown is on.......good luck with everything I'm sure it will be beautiful. Travel safe :)

 

Here is some of the stuff I purchased at Creative bag. I have yet to put lace down the middle of my runners (the last picture is an idea of what I'm hoping they will look like) and yet to decorate my centerpieces.

 

I made my starfish caketoppers. The picture does not do them justice but you will get the idea.

 

Can't wait to put it all together. Hopefully that happens soon.

Jolene, I am totally ready...in fact I have most of my packing completed, lol...with taking all our kids, I wanted to ensure that I was super organized so that I didn't suffer from anxiety at the last minute.....I actually am so ready that I just want to go to sleep and wake up next Thursday for my beauty treatments and leave on Friday, lol.    How about you?  Besides all your upcoming beauty treatments, are you ready?

They responded to me via email rather quickly...here is their email address:  comercial@airedefiestacuba.com  I think that Thursday's are their  "office" days...as that is when they respond almost immediately.

hahahaha good memory!  I sure did... the resort didn't offer much for décor for either the ceremony or the reception...I was contemplating on buying more decoration items, drapery etc., taking it all down yada yada  so I tossed back and forth as to whether I wanted less formal or more formal décor and getting stressed about it.... ....I decided on more formal and went with Aire De Fiesta.  I'm really looking forward it and think I made the right choice.  I definitely feel more comfortable about the decor and my stress is gone, lol.

Yes I have to pick up my guest book but other than that I am done, done, done no more! I think that I will pack tonight or tomorrow, it's funny since we have been a week away the calls and texts and Facebook messages that I have been getting everyone is super excited!

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
