      I love both! All that matters is what you feel best in.  Everyone will see how happy you are and love it too.

        I think they both look really nice!  Your second dress is definitely more fun and unique.  I agree that it just come down to which dress you feel is "the one."  My dress is actually a satin mermaid.  I originally purchased a more beach-appropriate dress made out of chiffon, but I later realized that I liked photos of  brides with fancy gowns on the beach.... something about it not fitting the venue looked cool to me, lol.

          I was really worried about being to hot in it and also about being able to move around well....lots of stairs as I found out from my site inspection. I'm alot more comfortable in the 2nd dress

            Ok, I just returned from my Las Caletas wedding.  Amazing.   Few pointers.  Fernando is WELL worth the money.  He does amazing work on make-up and hair.  I was worried because I typically go "natural" and didnt want to look like a painted picture of make-up.  He's truly worth every single penny.

             

            For anyone considering a photographer, I went with Eva Sica w/ photoshootsvallarta and she did fabulous work.  I was a little nervous because everyone that I wanted was already booked.  She's new to the area and had only shot one other wedding @ Las Caletas before mine.  I got my pictures yesterday and was MORE than happy with her work.  Oh, and she's SUPER reasonable.   Once I get a little more time, I'll share the photos.

             

            Just thought I'd throw in some quick comments.

                    My wedding was on November 3, 2010.  The weather was FABULOUS.  There was a slight breeze the entire day.  The wedding reception, everyone was comfortable and loved having "pashmina's" to wrap up in.  I would say that November is a great month for a wedding ceremony.  Nobody was complaining about being hot or uncomfortable.  I didnt need chair fans for anyone (thankfully I opted out of them). 

                     

                    I was really happy with Eva's work (photog).  She's super sweet, tries to get new/unusual shots while still capturing the most important shots that every bride wants.  She's worth looking into. 
                     

                    The only complaint out of anyone was the stairs heading up to the casita.  It's a short little hike and someone with bad knees might have a problem (as my aunt did).  Some said that they didnt want to go up and down to go for activities b/c it was too exhausting.

                     

                    Tips for the casita: if you plan on taking a shower, make sure you bring your own products, there wasnt anything there and Fernando wished that he start with clean/washed hair.  He will blow dry.  There isnt a lot of room or outlets, bring an extra extension cord and or outlets if you have several gals getting ready.   If you want to use the hot tub, make sure to tell Kelley to have it ready....we had to fill it up ourselves which took a little bit of time to do.

                      Congratulations!!! I can't wait to see your pictures!  And thanks for the advice on Fernando- I was debating, but everything I have seen and heard from him is wonderful!
