  1. So exciting! I have heard that Riu is nice. I had a friend stay there last year and she said they had a great time! I'm not sure about the sand and candle center pieces, but I do know that if you want flowers included in them, it will most likely be extra (you only have 1 centerpiece included). I am doing pretty basic center pieces that only incorporate a couple flowers in each, and ours were extra (but we are only going to have 5 or 6 tables, so since we don't need that many, I was okay with the extra charge). The table runners are included, and I believe any tea candles that you want to have on the table are included. I would still just double check with Lizbeth. I had a million ideas too over the course of our wedding planning process! It really helped me to make a bunch of Pinterest boards to collect my ideas, then when it came time to really start planning, I sifted through them all and made a little PowerPoint presentation of the stuff that I really wanted, and I sent that to our wedding coordinator. I tend to be pretty indecisive though, so I had to figure out a way to try to eliminate myself second guessing all of my decisions...this seemed to help!
  2. We booked Las Caletas in November of 2012. We got the first date we requested, so you shouldn't have a problem. If I remember correctly, it did take a couple of days to hear back. Dennise told me this is their busy season, so that could be what's taking a while for a response. My Fiance and I will be staying at Dreams for a total of 2 weeks (one week before the wedding, one week after). We have 49 people coming, and they are all staying between 3-7 nights. We used a friend of mine in Texas for our travel, but it was through Apple vacations. waiting for 2014 pricing to be released felt like it took FOREVER!! We had to wait for the airlines to release their pricing, which was in July of 2013! Hopefully you hear back soon! Let me know if I can help with any other questions!
  3. Hi There! I live in Milwaukee and am getting married at Las Caletas on 2.8.14! Congratulations on your engagement! Enjoy every second of it!!! We are staying at Dreams Puerto Vallarta and are SO excited! Depending on how many days you plan on having your guests stay, it could definitely be within your budget. The time of year that you get married is also a big factor in the cost of everyone's stay. When we booked, it was cheaper to fly out of Milwaukee, but would you consider flying out of ORD instead? That may end up saving some money as well! I'm pretty much all wrapped up as far as planning goes (minus a few details here and there), so let me know if you have any questions! I'd be glad to help however I can!
  4. Hey Hey! You looked amazing!!! How were the wedges walking down the aisle? I definitely think in going to go the wedges route but want to make sure the ground/aisle is relatively stable enough to do that! I also saw on another post you had written about working out the group rates at the hotel...do you know if we are able to negotiate the rates a all? I haven't landed on which resort we are staying at yet, but would love any tips you can give!!
  5. Hi ladies, quick question...what are you doing for shoes? I am a little over a foot shorter than my fiance and prefer to wear heels at least for the ceremony. Is that possible on the aisle runner? Or do you think heels will still sink?
  6. Hi all! First timer, so I hope I'm posting this in the correct spot!! We are getting married in Las Caletas in 2014...loooong ways off, but I'm too excited to wait to ask questions!!! Has anyone used their 'versatile band' instead of the DJ? My fiancé and I love the idea of having a live band, but were hoping to get an idea of what they are like before making a final decision!!
