for those of you in the planning process, i got married at las caletas in early november.
it really is an amazing venue. the day went by so quickly for me to remember, but all of our friends said it was the best wedding ever. we had about 75 people, we stayed at secrets, which is all inclusive, and absolutely fantastic, as well as adults only. i have no complaints about the resort, it was amazing - beautiful grounds, huge rooms, great food and service.
had our welcome dinner at barcelona tapas, that place is amazing. gorgeous views, great food, we called and talked to the owner william carballo. we paid about 50pp, but my side of the family doesn't drink at all. i would highly recommend checking barcelona tapas out!
las caletas was gorgeous. i gave dramamine to the guests before the boat ride over, the ride can sometimes be choppy. getting ready with my girlfriends was great. the bridal casita can be crowded if you have too many people getting ready at the time same time though. the lunch they provided was so good. hair and makeup were gorgeous.
the wedding itself was gorgeous. loved chuy, he kept it short but sweet. wish i had been able to take family pictures before, though. our family pictures didn't turn out well because it was so dark.. def take pictures before the ceremony, we did our bridal party ones before and they were much better. food was amazing, wish i had time to eat more of it. dj was great, had given him a song list beforehand. fire dancers are a must! if you can bring sky lanterns i would highly recommend it, they're cheaper to buy on amazon than to get there.
everyone was pretty rowdy by the time we got on the boat, so the party continued for another hour.
would highly recommend getting married there. one thing to consider - bringing your own photographer. las caletas is so beautiful your pictures will turn out fine. however, we were a little disappointed with our picture. that was the only thing i would change. the video, on the other hand - was amazing. i absolutely loved it, captured everything. would highly recommend getting a wedding video, that was totally worth the extra money.
