      Hey! This is awesome! We are not yet sure where we will be staying but Dreams is definitely one of the contenders.  I have researched like crazy, and would really like to stay at Secrets Vallarta, but it all really depends on the pricing.  We will probably look at that this November.  You never know, we may run into each other down there! :)

        We are moving over to Secrets after the wedding for our honeymoon!  We've stayed at Secrets (in Puerto Morelos) before and LOVED it!  I love that it's brand new, too.  It's beautiful but a little too pricey for our guests.  We're doing a site visit in November and are staying at Dreams. I'll let you know how it goes!  :)

          Yes please do!  We may decide to do the same thing, and stay at a different hotel for the honeymoon.  We thought about going to the Mayan side for our honeymoon, but was told we would have to fly back to Vancouver, then over to the Mayan side.  Seems a little silly, if we are already in Mexico.  So many possibilities.  Im glad I narrowed down the wedding to LC!

            Hi everyone! 

            I discovered this wonderful forum after we decided to have a destination wedding! We just confirmed our wedding date for 7/6/2013 at Las Caletas!!!! We are both very very excited! We love all the pictures from all the wedding we found this forum and that led us to book our wedding at Las Caletas!!!

             

            I've tried to read as much as I can on here, especially this thread. There is just so MUCH! Since our wedding date is almost a year away, we are having a hard time getting any answer from Dennise. I have tons of questions that I hope I can get some help here from prior Las Caletas brides.

            Here are some of my questions…

            1.    How much stuff you brought with you to Las Caletas? Do they charge extra fees for putting up the decorations?

            We are trying to be on a budget so if we can bring as much as we can, hopefully that can save us some money. But I’m afraid I’m wanting too much and won’t be able to bring them down there. Mainly, I am thinking about the decorations, like chair bows, centerpieces, table numbers, paper lanterns, sky lanterns, paper pom poms…

            2.    Has anyone brought your own sky lanterns?  Is it worth it?

            3.    Has anyone brought your own paper lanterns? Is there electricity to power them up? Or do I need to bring battery run lights?

            4.    How many people per table do they normally sit?

             

            I apologize for asking so many questions…and I am sure I might have more in the process.

                  Winniehyw,

                   

                  Congrats!! How exciting!!!

                   

                  I can help with some questions..

                   

                  1.  I didn't bring a ton of stuff down with me because i was trying to keep it simple, but i brought flower petal cones and petals (which Annie and her team put together for me and stuffed) and fans that they layed on the ceremony chairs.  They didn't charge extra for doing that.  They are there to help you and have a team of people, so whatever you have, they will take and set up.

                   

                  2. I brought my own sky lanterns and it was worth it!! I believe they charge $9 a person for those, so if you are going to do it, bring your own biodegradable lanterns.  Much cheaper on Amazon! (Buy extra too because some don't work right or they burn.. like both of ours did haha)

                   

                  3. For the paper lanterns, your best bet might to just do the battery operated lights.  Much less of a hassle, plus the whole place is lit up with candles, so not sure where and if there are plugs in the area.

                   

                  4. Tables seat 8 or 10, or you could do one long one (i've seen it in pictures).  If you PM me, I can send you the table layout that she sent me.

                    Krs398, Thanks so much! Your answers are very helpful! I'll PM you later. And yes I've seen long tables in pictures but just not sure the number of people per table if it's not a long table.
