For brides and grooms seeking luxurious accommodations, you can suggest one of the three upscale Paradisus Resorts in Cuba, where the Free Wedding package is offered for groups with as little as 12 paying guests, including the bride and groom.
Paradisus Varadero is the family resort in Cuba and the most popular choice. Divided into three distinct sections, the hotel can surely meet the expectations of any couple seeking high-end accommodations between the Royal Service adults-only section with butler service or the brand new and modern 284-room Family Concierge area.
The Free Wedding option at Paradisus Resorts is the most comprehensive package available in the Caribbean and includes not only the notary fees and the legalization of the marriage certificate but also a special room for the bride and groom, musicians during the ceremony, the rehearsal and wedding dinners, a private cocktail, a bouquet and a boutonniere for the bride and groom respectively, a late check-out and much more.
All three Paradisus Resorts can accommodate larger groups and offer options for special group dinners and private cocktails.
For mid-range budgets:
If your clients choose a Meliá Hotel for their wedding, which is the brand’s most famous brand for weddings, the Free Wedding package will be available with as few as 17 paying guests and will include many items over and above what others can offer.
Ten Meliá resorts are selected as “top choices” each year by hundreds of brides and grooms worldwide. The two most popular properties for weddings are the Meliá Las Dunas and the Meliá Jardines del Rey. They both have a large choice of decorations and options for weddings. In addition, they can accommodate larger groups and have a wealth of experience doing so.
Meliá Varadero is another great option for groups as the hotel perfectly caters to ethnic groups and special requests such as with Indian weddings.
For smaller budgets:
If the wedding takes place at a Sol Hotel, the Free Wedding package will be available for groups of 25 paying guests and more.
Sol Cayo Guillermo is the most affordable wedding property and can be a great option for smaller budgets, without compromise on quality.
