Rachel's Las Caletas Review/ Wedding Recap

Recommended Posts

Rachel, thank you again so much for your review, and may I also join the call to see more pictures please when you get them!

 

I am also so excited to have you shoot our Nathaniel! Now that things have really fallen into place I am relaxing and actually let myself picture the whole thing! As of today we have officially got room blocks for both our American and Canadian guests at the Dream Hotel, so that's one more thing down!

 

Oh yeah, and I'm starting Team-in-Training next week so hopefully my legs will be in solid shape for going up and down the stairs by January!

Awesome review Rachel! I especially liked the part about the wrong music during the cermony - I was laughing out loud! Everything looked so beautiful. Can't wait to see pics of you in your dress!

So, the thing about burning a hole in the dress...you didn't really get into that. How on earth does that happen? Where on the dress was the boo boo? I'm guessing it wasn't THAT bad, but inquiring minds want to know (and see pics).

Oh, there's drinking on the day trip! That is how I did my site visit, and they were bringing us tequila sunrises and stuff the moment we got on the boat!shots.gifshots.gifshots.gif

There wasn't a steamer at the hotel and they could send it out to get steamed but I didn't trust to get it back. As I was ironing all the groom's and best man's outfits I thought "hmm...maybe I should try to steam the dress out with the iron." So I began to steam the dress- worked out ok. I was nearly done and I accidentally touched the lace overlay with the iron and melted/scorched a hole in it. It was one spot about a dime size and another between a nickel or quarter in size. I freaked out- started to panic. Wanted to show Steve the hole, but I also didn't want him to see the dress since I didn't let him see it for nearly a year.

I told him what I did and started to cry. He reassured me a little then called my mom to come look. My mom couldn't believe how stupid I was so she called my sister to share the story. My sister came over and they both made fun of me for a bit. Then they both reassured me it wasn't that bad since it was on the upper butt area and no one would notice. I don't know if they meant no one would notice because it was small or no one would notice because they wouldn't be looking at my butt.blush2.gif

I just decided to get over it and have a gives.gif attitude. It was easier to make jokes about it than to cry about it. Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures of it. I should have, but I didn't. sad.gif Who knows- maybe I will have a lot of pictures of it if it shows up on film. hehe

I've emailed my photog to find out when I get pics back. Haven't heard from her but my contract says 3 weeks. According to my calculations, one more week. cheer2.gif

Ooooh yes, and they make excellent pina coladas too. Make sure you get some of those on the boat if you like them cause they don't have blenders on the island!! shots.gif

Make sure you have the rum punch - not sure if they have this during the day tour (I can't remember it) but on Rythms of the night they have it for sure - it is to die for!!!! We requested to have that specifically as our "drink" for the wedding - so Nicole made sure we had lots of it for the reception - and on the boat!!!! friday.gif

On another note - I am seriously considering organizing a BDW get together/LC trip for next March - would anyone be interested? I'm thinking we could do something similar to what Tammy (host) is doing in Cabo this year - except do it in PV and have everyone go to Las Caletas!!!!!

 

Anyone interested? Maybe I need to create a new thread!

HMMMMMMM

 

(sorry for the hijack! - I tried to find the smiley - couldn't find it!)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
