Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies!

 

I got "The Email" from Dennise a couple weeks ago to start the planning process! Time to start finalizing all the details! I will try and be better about posting on here as the process continues and keep you all informed in case you have questions!

Just got the confirmation that my wedding date is booked for Nov.12, 2014 at Las Caletas! Could not be any more excited. Just want to thank everyone for their input on this site, it's what made me choose this location.

Congrats and welcome!  November is perfect in PV (we are getting married this November, on the 16th at Las Caletas :) ) Be sure to let us know if you have any questions along the way - I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say we are more than happy to help! 

 

Happy planning!!

 

Lauren

I'm also having a hard time finding a photographer... Not sure if I want to use the one offered at las Caletas. I looked into photoshoots Vallarta & License to still... And not really sold on either one. Has anybody used another dw photographer or a local photographer to PV?

Has any bride who stayed at the Barcelo hotel resort used their hair/makeup services for their bridal party? Since Las Caletas only allows 5 girls max (including bride) to go early I have about an additional 6 girls that will need to get ready at the hotel? Any advice? :)

We are using Photoshoots Vallarta.  We met and worked with Eva and Pierre last November for our engagement shoot (which was included in our package for free).  They are extremely nice and professional.  We LOVE our pictures and can't imagine having anyone other than Eva capture our wedding day.  Their prices are super reasonable as well.  Keep in mind that there is an additional $300 fee for using an outside photographer.  I've attached a few of our favorite engagement photos. :)

I agree with LaLa. Photoshoots Vallarta was amazing!!!! We had them the entire wedding day and trash the dress photoshoot. I would 100% recommend Photoshoots Vallarta.

Photoshoots Vallarta 100%!  Eva and Pierre took care of us all day and Eva was also very helpful in translating for the hair dressers.  

 

Here are a couple of pics from our day...also they adjusted the price for us because we didn't want the engagement/trash the dress session.  And we received all of our pics within a week!!!

We stayed at the Barcelo PV and my husband's cousin got her hair done at the salon there before the wedding, however, she said that she would have rather not paid to get her hair done because the boat ride was pretty windy. Her hair still looked nice and she was happy with it after the salon, but she wasn't happy with it after the windy boat ride. Just something to keep in mind! Also, the salon was apparently very busy when we were there (early December), so if you are going to arrange appointments for the day of your wedding, I would try to set an appointment before you go and then confirm it when you get there.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
