    I agree with Rachel and Kat.  With everything included - Villa for week and 1/2, airfare, LC wedding, transportation, extras at LC (hair/make-up/flowers/cake) and photog......We are at $14K.   My fiance and I are paying for it ourselves too.  The good thing about LC is they have a lot of different packages to choose from depending on your budget. 

     

    It all depends on what you're willing to pay for and what you want your guests to pay for.  We took on a big expense by paying for everyones rooms, but our wedding is small  12-15 ppl. 

     

    Eva with www.photoshootsvallarta.com is really reasonable in prices.  Best I found. 

     

    I would estimate the actual wedding at LC to cost approx $4500-$4800.  That's not including Kelly's tip or the fee for Brad (guy who perfoms ceremony).

      I think that there are a few factors! And the biggest have to do with the package you pick and how many guests.. that seems like common sense, but it really is the biggest factor

       

      We picked the "best" package and there was a base price of (I THINK!!) $5200 and then $50 pp.. so that adds up quick and made a big difference on what we paid. The rest of the stuff (like adding on more flowers and whatnot) really wasnt the bulk of what we paid.

            Kelly has been wonderful to work with.  I think you'll really enjoy sharing this with her.   She's funny and responds quickly to all your "overly asked questions".....well, in my case any way.

             

            I'm ready for her to be back from vacation.........

             

            I got the Paradise Package and not the Premium Package.  My guests probably wouldnt have danced, so a "reception" wasnt important to me.  Plus, I thought everything else we were getting was going to make up for not having a reception.  There is a place to have a first dance. 

             

            I think after having the cake and sucking down some drinks, we are all going to watch the show.  I think most folks that did premium packages did not see the show.    Hey, even if we all visit and talk; I'm ok with not watching the show

              We didnt see the show, I think that it was going on on the other side of the island the night we got married.. but I am not sure. We didnt hear a THING! I love that about Las Caletas! I didnt even know there WAS another side!!

                We had a few people walk down the beach from the show and ended up at our wedding. I remember looking at them so confused like "where did you come from?"  I saw the excursion boat go by at one point, but totally forgot they were there because it is really quiet...surprisingly.

                  My wife and I got married on May 25th, 2010 at Las Caletas.  We had the time of lives and suggest the location to anyone looking for a spectacular destination for a wedding.  We wanted to share our wedding slide-show because we gained so much knowledge from the forum but we rarely posted because we were too busy lurking.  We hope everyone enjoys, and if you have any questions feel free to ask.  If I get a chance I will post a review of our destination wedding.  Thank you.
