Recommended Posts

Good call Ann! Yep and the boat ride is like another 45 minutes from what i can remember :-)

 

I would go for the extra hour as well. I never wanted our night to end! Totally worth the money.

 

Speaking of pics, I see that Kate's back! Kate we need an LC quick fix LOL

Hi girls!

We went to Las Caletas for "Rythems of the Night." I thought of each and every one of you as I stood on that beach after dinner:) What a special place!

I'll work on pics but they aren't that great in the darksad.gif

She had champagne waiting in our room and a special table at Mar Intimo with flower petals and a candle. It was so nice! We saw Dream PV and didnt like it as well and agree it is a lot further and more difficult to get to the marina. VP is perfect in that respect too: The RIU screwed up my meeting time with them so we didn{t see it and that is fine...looked too big anyways. I think we are def going to book VP if we can get a decent rate. She said if we have around 20 rooms booked we get free private functions as well so we can have a great welcome dinner there. Andi...where did you have your welcome dinner

So happy we did the LC site visit and toured the hotels...couldnt be happier with the decisions we made.

Cant find the apostrophe or question mark on this Mexican keyboard...sorry for the typing!!
glad you are having a good time!!!!! smile159.gif bring back pics!

so we had our welcome dinner on the triton pool terrace...basically right next to and in between the pool and the pool bar. here is a pic of the set up (as viewed from our room)

we also had an AMAZING sunset where our photogs were able to take great pics of everyone too. we didn't have enough rooms booked to get the free private event but even still it was pretty reasonably priced I thought. one thing that sorta sucked was that we had 6 guests who came to the welcome dinner but were not staying at VP. we had a guest pass for those guests but VP security watched them like a hawk and wouldn't let them in the door until 6:00 on the dot. not a big deal, just FYI. let me know if you have more questions about VP and I can try to help!

i was going to say the same exact thing! the things I would NOT skip on are the firedancers and the extra time.

and for sure the party continues on the boat - heck it starts on the boat! we had trouble getting people off the boat both ways rolleyes.gif

Loved it all except the port... they lined us up and put stickers on it. I know, they have to but way too touristy for me! But once we got there it was AMAZING. I thought my night settings on the camera were working but not so much with all of the flickering light. So bummed! I'll post what I can.

I would love to be able to provide you with a timeline. Can you first give me a better idea of how many guests we are working with. The mode of transportation affects the timeline. So, for instance, if you take a Sailboat, you leave the marina at 2:30 pm…. If you take the faster boat, you leave the main marina terminal at 4:00 pm….. Ceremony, initially in both cases is at 5:30 pm – and dinner starts around 6:45pm……



With the mariachis, I would have them start probably a little after the boat arrives, give your guests a moment to use the bathroom if they need to and freshen up, then start them. So they would play before the ceremony, after the ceremony and into dinner. Does this helphuh.gif



Ceremony then usually lasts 15 minutes…..
OK! So I think that I figured out why we have a different time line and why your ceremony starts so much earlier than mine. I was reading up on the different packages and I think that we have just booked different wedding packages and the time line is different because of that.

I booked the Platinum..or "premiere" package. Did you book the same one? Or one of the other packages?

    • 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.
