Here is a Location Challenge for All of you ladies.....!

Recommended Posts

Okay, so in trying to figure out what type of DW/location I want, I realized that I LOVE LOVE the Las Caletas concept....going to a private island via a Party Boat :) Kind of traditional wedding mixed with a non-traditional location....the bonfire reception, all the candles and tiki torches....anyway.... I LOVE it...BUT (there's always a BUT!)....my FI has nixed Mexico and Jamaica as our location...whyhuh.gif Well, I'm not sure, and either is he but those are two places he does NOT want to get married. Plus, because all of our guests are on the East Coast, this destination would be more expensive than, say, Dominican Republic, which is why we were leaning that way. ANYWAY.....the challenge is....Does anyone know of a set up similar to Las Caletas BUT in the Caribbean...or one of the islands closer the east side than west.....whew....sorry for the long post!

I don't know anything about the Caribbean but the first thing that popped into my mind was the Bahamas too...just because there are so many little islands right? Someone here probably knows something....

not a private island but we honeymooned in eleuthera, bahamas. heres a funny entry in my blog about it, history, etc... Leigh Miller Photography. we would go back in a minute and the owner of the house we rented wanted me to come back and shoot her wedding in may but i was already booked. she had her wedding on the beach at the house.

 

heres a really cool location in eleuthera - capricorn house | Eleuthera Bahamas Vacation Rental Home on the Beach

 

heres a little private island just off eleuthera and harbour island - CARIBE CAY -www.myownprivateisland.com - the cool thing about this place is how close it is to the other two islands where guests could stay.

 

here are two great places to stay in harbour island - Rock House Harbour Island Bahamas

The Landing : A Boutique Hotel on Harbour Island, The Bahamas

 

and a few cool places in eleuthera -

Jen I am sure there are tons of places that you can hold a private ceremony on. I am just curious, why doesn't your FI want to do it in Mexico if you love las Caletas so much. Ann is getting married there and it seems like such a gorgeous place. Is there a specific reason why he is so against it. Also, if you are looking for a photog I would highly recommend Leigh, she is so nice and her work is stunning.

Yeah, that's the million dollar question! I have no idea why not, and he has no idea why not, those are just two places he thinks "everyone gets married"....ummmmm.....apparently we are a celebrity couple and need to do things differently.....and NO ONE gets married in DR or the caribbean in general....hahahaha!!!!
I'm working on him :)

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
