Hi Lesley,

 

It was probably me or my girlfriends you saw at Dreams with the luggage tag. Most of our guests departed the day after the wedding and we stayed a day extra. Now I wished we could have stayed one day longer, we really needed a day to just relax. I'm sure you are having a blast at Dreams. So cool that you returned to Las Caletas after the wedding, we are planning to do the same this coming November during a cruise stop.

 

Catch up with you when you get back. I'm excited to see your pictures. There's something magical at Las Caletas that in my opinion can't be found anywhere else, all the brides glow and just look extra happy (from what I can see in the pictures for LC weddings).

I would love to go on and on about it and I promise I will write a long long review but I have to get back to my honeymoon :). I just have to say that Kelley is amazing as always, Vallarta Adventures is awesome also (we have already done the Marietas and Outdoor Adventure excursions and everyone that works for the company is excellent, tomorrow we are doing sea lions), our photog, Jared Rey (Hernandez), who I found on this forum, was an absolute lifesaver, so nice, and so much fun. Dreams so far is pretty good and we are enjoying ourselves. We loved staying at the Westin also before the wedding. I might never leave PV, we will see........I will be back next week with more details and pictures, but rest assured these are the most amazing people and the most amazing scenery to have for your wedding so no worries!! By the way Lea I saw maybe you or one of your guests having breakfast at Dreams the other morning (saw their luggage tags) ;)

Hi Ivietti,

 

We started off our planning the same way. We were 3 months into planning a local wedding and a venue near the beach, but cancelled the whole thing and decided to do Las Caletas. Best.Decision.Ever. My family thinks the same way too (even the ones who were not on board in the beginning with our destination wedding).

 

Congrats on booking Las Caletas. Enjoy each step of your planning, it will go by fast.

Hey Lea,

 

Thanks! Yeah we are so excited it's as if Las Caletas was meant to be and I do not regret postponing the other one! Glad to hear the (non supporters) eventually got on board. We have a few of those right now, but we aren't letting it stop us because Las Caletas is just too beautiful! Save the Dates arrive in the mail today! Can't wait to send them out!!! :)

Have a blast!

I have heard you will definitely need a 2-prong surge protector so all your b-maids can get ready and plug in their curling irons, etc.

Hey ladies! I bought my dress today!!!! Just a question...did you guys have a train? My dress has one, I was thinking of not having one, but wasn't sure so I thought I would seek advice from those of you who have gotten married at Las Caletas! Thanks

My wedding gown was not a typical beach wedding dress, and I wore my dress with the long train walking down the aisle and during the ceremony. Right after, my MOH and my girlfriends all helped tie the bustles (about 10 of them) and my dress was fine the rest of the night. After it was all said and done, including the Trash the Dress session, it ripped it 2 places, but it was minor and nothing a simple sewing machine can fix.

 

Here's a picture of me walking down the aisle, you can see the train.

2 prong extension cord, extra towels if you have a lot of girls going with you early in the morning. Keep in mind that the showers in the bridal casita have no stalls, there are 2 showers to share, sort of like locker room style. We only had 4 girls with us and we were able to take showers 1 at a time and we didn't share shower time.

 

 

Have a wonderful wedding. Today is our one week + 1 day anniversary!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
