How many Cuban Brides 2 Be left to get married?

Hi all cuban brides (past, present & future)



With Ems2 married in May & NikiP married yesterday, I was wondering how many Cuban Brides 2 Be are left. Congratulations to you both!



I know CubanBride is getting married in August - is she the next cuban bride 2 be getting married? Or is there someone before her. :\?



I am getting married 17th Sept 07 at Playa Pesquero image



Please tell us when & where you are getting married in Cuba so we can see how many of us are left!!! image

  • Hi jobaby,



    Im very excited at the moment...not nervous yet! But I'm sure the nerves will start to kick in a bit nearer the time!!



    I have everything sorted for the wedding...just bits to do for the reception on 8th September back home, but I have 2 and a half weeks to sort it all when I get back!

    hi cb,

    Yeah we left 3 weeks inbetween us getting back and our reception, i think we'll def need that bit of time, plus it gives me time to get my dress cleaned ready to show it of again...

    i got my first fitting of it tomorrow, it shouldn't have arrived until november!

  • Hey Jobaby,



    My sister came back from her wedding abroad and had a party the next day!! She was so tired, she was clock watching and didn't enjoy it half as much as she should've done....I certainly wasn't going to make the same mistake!!



    The dress will as you say probably need cleaning in between anyway!



    I had one fitting a couple of weeks ago but decided to wait to have it taken in until the very last possible date because I am still trying to lose weight.. so my fitting date is on the 9th July!!

    Then after that I have to go back on the 20th July to check it's all fitting correctly, then I will pick it up on Friday the 3rd August...we go to the hotel on the 4th and fly out on the 5th!!



    Hope your fitting went well today?? come back and tell us you are still in love with your dress!!

  • Hey Jo,

    So glad your fitting went well! blimey 1/2" off the hem I needed about 2 feet off mine hee hee!!

    No I didn't buy my dress in a smaller size, I brought it to fit me at the time, Doh! Just incase I didn't lose weight but have lost 37.5 lbs!!



    It needs lots of taking in but the seamstress said it's not a problem at all...she has never let a dress get the better of her yet!



    Have you a pic off your dress?? I have probably looked at it before on a post somewhere but my memory is appaling!

    hi jobaby



    We are getting maried at the iberostar in varadero,

    Just got insurance sorted out with travel agent and talked other half into wearing a suit instead of shorts!! is there many in your party going with you? We have just had a change of heart in a reception for when we get back, we managed to get one sorted for 3 weeks after we get back too, but that was cause of christmas in between i think.!

    Hi everyone,



    I get married in cuba in 36 days and i'm starting to get really excited, does anyone know what currency to take to cuba because I'm very confused because some people say you can't take anything american into Cuba but then it says you can pay for things in dollars, can anyone confirm what is best to take



    thanks
  • jobabyukjobabyuk Posts: 366
    Hi julie,

    i was also told nothing american,

    hope this helps

    Jo x
  • Hi,



    I have been to Cuba before and you definitely can't take american dollars. You actually can't even use american credit cards either so make sure you do have an English one!

    You are best to just take sterling, I think all the hotels have their own currency exchange banks/ places.



    Julie s where do you get married in Cuba? I am getting married in 30 days time in cuba too.....wow, it's so exciting!!



    x cb x



  • burcaffburcaff Posts: 386
    Julie,

    I got married in Cuba in May & as CB stated, its best to take sterling with you....

    no cards will be accepted that are affiliated with American banks i.e. MBNA, American express....
