ROMANTIC WEDDING IN CUBA
Cuba is a romantic tropical paradise and an incredibly exciting place in which to get married and enjoy a honeymoon with its rich scents and stunning scenery, incredible beaches, wonderful food and friendliest of atmospheres.
Cuba is a large Caribbean island that is caught in a 1950s' time warp. Wonderful old American cars including classic models cruise the highways to a backdrop of Spanish and American-built colonial buildings.
The country though has an attraction that is intoxicating and its period splendor and natural beauty offer the perfect location for the most romantic of weddings. In Old Havana there are stunning former colonial churches that provide the perfect mix of religion and romance complemented by hotels that are the dream location for any honeymoon. Set by white, palm-fringed beaches, within tropical gardens, the hotels are the ideal start to a long and happy marriage.
If neither the bride nor groom has been married before, all that is needed to marry in Cuba is a valid passport and a tourist card which is available from the Cuban consulate or via most travel agents. If the bride or groom has been married before, then she or he should also bring a birth certificate and the certificate of divorce. If the person is a widow or a widower, then she or he should bring a birth certificate and the death certificate. It is important that the certificates are translated into Spanish and stamped by the Cuban consul. Other documents that must be sent in advance are full details about the couple getting married including:
education and the full names of all four parents whether alive or dead.
A photocopy of the passport should also be attached to these details which should be sent in advance to the hotel. All the original documents must be brought with the couple.
It is essential that the details on the passports are accurate as they will form the basis for the Marriage Certificate following the wedding ceremony. It is possible to get married on the beach in Cuba and full details can be obtained from one of the registrar offices on the island.
Cuba is a wonderful location for getting married and for a honeymoon and a great place to start a happy marriage!
