    @ Nessa0308, Yes my sister's wedding will be Eva's first LC wedding. She is getting married in Oct. We were nervous because she had not shoot a wedding there before, but we asked Kelley and she said she heard good things about her. Kelley mentioned that one of the best PV photogs actually referes clients to Eva if she is booked. We thought that had to be a good sign lol!!!

        Yes, that is exactly what they are! and yep! I did send her an idea of what I wanted. It didnt turn out EXACTLY like the picture I sent her.. but that is because she had a much better idea! She is VERY good at that. She got me these GREAT cream colored calla lillies with a purple center. SO COOL! I didnt think to add callas before but I am glad I did!!

        Well I dont know if they are cheaper because I never looked into fake flowers. I wanted real ones, and I didnt want the hassel of having MORE stuff to bring.. but I thought that the price was really reasonable.. even with the "upggrade" I got.. and they turned out GREAT! They lasted the WHOLE night.. and I took then back with me and ended wearing one of the flowers in my hair each night.. I loved doing that because I felt like the flowers didnt go to waste that way.. they lasted the rest of the week.

            Kat- the real touch flowers are super expense!!!! I also wanted to be able to keep them but I dont really care anymore. I sent a bunch of the girls pics to kelley that I liked. Im sure she will laugh when she sees that she did them!

            Does anyone know how they do the table set up for 55 people? Are they cirlces of eight?

              We didnt have 55 people.. only 32 actually.. but I will show you how my tables were set up.. I am sure it will be pretty much the same.. only more of them

              Click the image to open in full size.

              I had to look at the pic to remember how many were at what table..

              it looks like me like we had 6 per table. They were at an angle and there were 3 on each side of our sweetheart table. As far as I know you can skip having the sweetheart table and have another table of 6 (or possibly there if you dont like you and your husband not sitting my yourselves.

              she sent me a chart of how many can go at what table and where they are.. let me see if I can find it

                   I started an old post elsewhere, but as I can see ,there's a TON more info here!!  So the wedding is to be sometime early Nov 2011 at LC . It's going to be a small wedding (10-20 pp) still in the early planning. I have lots of questions re: budget, photographers, flowers, and where to stay. I have been to PV once and stayed at the Buenaventura for a week and fell in love with PV. So the first question is. How much are people usually spending on the weddings. my fi and i will be paying for it ourselves... and wel.....l would like to have a number to work with??  Pls help!! Thanks everyone

                    Welcome girls!  Congrats!  You will love Las Caletas!


                    Katherine- search for budgets.  We have many threads with budgets and I know brides have uploading their spreadsheets that itemizes costs.  That should give you a better start to figure out what type of budget you are looking at.  I think my total budget was around $14k- which I included my 2 week honeymoon stay, LC total cost for 20 people, wedding dress, welcome dinner, photography, groom attire, etc.  However, this number is totally subjective because everyone has different priorities.  I think my LC total was $6-7k.  I can't remember.

                    Happily married since 2008

                      What Rachel said is about exactly what I have to say. My wedding for 32 people was close to $8000 and the total spent on everything including our week at Dreams PV, dress, gifts and everything was around $12,000 which also included out wedding bands and all that.
