Hello everyone,


After many years together, my fianc© and I have perfected the Art of Marriage. We are best friends, lovers and soul mates. We have grown together to have the same sense of value and common objectives; we have learned to speak words of appreciation; we have learned to compromise and know that being the right person is just as important as being the right partner; we are able to forgive and forget; we never go to sleep angry; we stand together and face the world; we say "I love you" at least once a day; we form a circle of love that gathers all our friends and family and we will never be too old to hold hands. We are getting married knowing that our love will last a lifetime!


Now, time to start planning the wedding.  We decided on a destination wedding as we love to travel.  We’ve been to Belize, Cuba, Dominican, Barbados, Mexico, Jamaica and Cayman Islands and I have to say that Cuba has pretty good beaches.  We also chose Cuba as it is the most cost effective for our guests and has the best nightly entertainment (Costa Rica comes in 2nd).   My future brother-in-law had been to Blau Marina Varadero (formerly Barcelo Marina) and he absolutely loved it!  I checked out the packages and compared with some of the other local resorts and decided to go with Blau Marina as that where we got the most for our money.   After getting quotes from Sunwing, Trans-At and Signature Vacations, we booked with Transat Vacations…. $1032 for regular rooms and $1104 for oceanview rooms and some really impressive incentives.


I paid the $30 so that can start quickly accessing the templates and pictures.  This website has been so very helpful and want to Thank all the brides who contribute to it! 


Looking forward to hearing from people who have been married in Varadero Cuba in particulary would love to hear from you if you were married at the Blau Marina (formerly Barcelo Marina).

17 Years in the Making....and we love each other more now then ever!
