Las Caletas Couples ~ POST HERE!!! (**All LC Brides...PLEASE READ 1st post, red text)

Recommended Posts

Everything will be great laurin!  And if there are surprises, i'm sure they will be good ones.  I didn't visit LC before booking so I had no idea how it looked in real life and only knew by photos.  It's definitely different than what I imagined but it was amazing.  GOOD LUCK and can't wait to see pics!

Ali,

 

Congrats on your wedding. You look amazing. I was just wondering what the sky laterns are? It looks pretty cool , do you light them up and let them go into the sky with a wish? Did kelley provide these ? And lastly when were they done during the ceremony?

 

I cant believe I am 2 months away , I am in the mist of planning and beginning my talks with kelley. Just hope all goes well.

Thanks!  Best. Day. Ever.  You will soon find out.

Sky Lanterns are becoming more popular these days - they have been in the move Hangover 2 and also on the Bachelorette. We did these right after the father/daughter & mother/son dances as it was dark at LC and that's the best time to do it.  you can find out more information at theskylantern.com but they are AWESOME and I would highly recommend doing them at LC.  I brought 2 packs of 12-colored lanterns with me (they take about 2 or 3 ppl per lantern) and don't forget to bring lighters..  I brought 15 cheap Bic lighters from Walmart.  Kelley loves these and I think you should definitely do them!

 

Here is a link to Amazon, which was the cheapest I found and qualify for free shipping if you buy 2 packs!

A few questions I've randomly come up with:

 

1. What did you girls think of the DJ's actual sound?  Did he sound good?

 

2. Are there drinks on the boat for the guests on the way to Las Caletas and if so, is it a cash bar?

 

3. Everyone is now getting me worried that I should add the extra hour.. I was just worried about those who might want to go back right away.. did anyone have problems with that?

We brought our own DJ and we are very, very picky about the music being played and sound quality.  They have very good JBL speakers and I wouldn't worry about it sounding bad.  We basically had a rave on the beach and it all sounded great.

 

Yes, drinks on the boat for guests coming over.  It's included in the package so no cash exchange is required.  Drinks are also included on the boat ride back to the marina.

 

Highly highly recommend the extra hour.  You are going to get to LC and not want to leave...you'll want to stay all night.  For guests that don't partake in all the dancing, they can hang out on top where everyone eats or chill on the beach in the lounge chairs they set up.  The majority of your guests will want to stay as long as possible including you and your husband! :)

Ladies who had more than 50 guests at their wedding.. do you know if the table next to the buffet is really far away from the other tables?  The seating arrangement Kelly sent me looks like it is. I don't want those guests to feel left out!

For past couples, did you arrange transportation for your guests to/from the Marina? We have guests staying at 3 different resorts, and are wondering if we should hire a charter bus, or just let people try to catch a cab. I've been to the Marina a couple of times it seems like you have to walk up the street to that busy road to try and find a cab, which could be a hassle for our guests at the end of the night. How did everyone else handle transportation to/from the Marina?

Hello everyone
I'm looking for a little advice! I am heading to Puerto Vallarta this Friday and I really want to try and scope out as many things as we can while we're there. We  have made arrangements to visit Las Caletas on Monday. We are staying at Dreams Villamagna and visiting Dream Puerto Vallarta. My concern is that Las Caletas will not live up to the hype. I want to visit some other locations and really make use of my time there. If anyone has any ideas about other places I should be visiting i would be VERY grateful!!!!!! I really like the garden-like scene, grass, and gazebo areas by the water. 

Thank you PV brides! :)

Jmikla - that 1 odd table isn't too far from the other tables.  It's right next to 3 other tables that are close to the buffet as well.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
