Hi!

 

My fiancee and I are in a simlar situation.  We are planning on getting married in October 2015.  As for booking things now, I'm not really sure.  We were going to wait until about a year before our wedding to start booking.  As for hotels, I wouldn't reccommend going below 4 stars for Cuba.  Their standards are very different from Canadian standards.  It all depends on what you like.  We are getting married at the Melia Cayo Santa Maria in Santa Maria Cuba.  It's on an island that's exculsively for tourists so it's very quiet and private.  It's about a 90 minute drive from the airport.  The beach is incredible and so are the accommodations, service, and food. 

 

As for the best prices.  Cuba is much cheaper from May to November because of hurricane season.  The prices are almost slashed in half during hurricane season.  Cuba doesn't usually get hit by hurricanes, but it is humid and rainy during that time.  I think the best month to go to Cuba is in April because it is hot, sunny, and doesn't rain as much, it is also the most popular month for a wedding and a bit pricey. 

 

The best way to determine which hotel you want to get married at is to actually visit the venue to see for yourself.  Booking in the off season or last minute could enable you to get great deals.

 

Happy Planning!

We're not getting married till late 2015 (we're leaning towards November after reading some posts about weather on here), but there's really no information about anything in 2015.  I really want to start planning, but my fiancee wants me to wait till we've saved a bit first.

 

@@Tamra do you have a wedding planner or travel agent helping you out?  I'm surprised nothing is up yet for January 2015.  Calculating for each guest makes me nervous too because the number of people will really impact our budget.  I'm not even in the planning stages yet, but it's nerve wrecking.

Plan away doesn't hurt lol If you can find things great if not then you'll have lots of time still :)

 

We don't have a wedding planner yet the resort will offer one once I confirm, I'm thinking about a travel agent... Wondering if it's worth it. We'd are having a very small private ceremony so just 6 guests and us my son and niece... So I'm not worrying to much about cost because they have to come lol

But to create and save for a budget would be wonderful lol

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
