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

Recommended Posts

We had one too, I couldn't tell you the price though because videography came as part of the package we won through KLK Photography/Blue Sky Videos.

 

I think before your wedding a lot of brides debate on this topic, I know that I did. The day goes so fast that you miss some of the details so it is good to have it on video to remember those. Especiall the ceremony...I was in my own little world with my hubby up at the altar so it was good to go back and watch the ceremony again.

According to the store I bought the suit,"These lightweight wool suits feature an innovative fabric developed for NASA to keep you feeling cool and comfortable in any climate. With a lining made of Smart Fabric Technology by Outlast, it balances temperature and releases excess heat. In 2-button with center vent. Soft shoulders, fully lined. Pleated trousers are half-lined to the knee. Unfinished bottoms for altering ease. 100% wool. Dry clean. Imported. CLICK ON SWATCHES BELOW TO SEE COLOR CHANGE."

 

So taking that into consideration, I kept my jacket on til nighttime.  I never felt to hot and I enjoyed the ocean breeze.  Don't get me wrong it was in the 80-90 range with no cloud in the sky but I wasn't sweating.  If the gentlemen perspire alot, then they will be sweating a little throughout the ceremony but once night time happens the weather drops to a comfortable 65-75.  Hope this helps and congratulations. 

 

Thanks! My fiance perked up when he heard something about NASA suits...ha

Umm I think from whoever LC used- kinda like their "photographer".  I think Ann used them so she may be able to provide a name.

I just used the guy that Vallarta Adventures set me up with, not sure I ever got a name though it might say on the video I got.  But it was $575 - remember that this was over 3 years ago though!

question:  I was reviewing the "tipping and how much" thread and I saw a lot of folks tipped their photog?  Did everyone else tip photog?  Also, for those of you that used Fernando to do hair/make-up, I'm assuming you tipped him as well?  I've got Kelly & Brad on my "to tip" list, but I hadnt thought of photog......Since Fernando Alejandro Lady Gaga is $220, which I think is a lot, I was going to give him $25 (yikes, am I being cheap)? I'd normally tip 22% for hair, but he's already double what I'd normally pay.  HELP ME LADIES.......

I wasnt extremly impressed with the videos that I saw from the video people that LC uses so I didnt get the video! luckily our friend made a video for us and did a GREAT job! I think that it is totally worth getting a video! I think $575 is exactly what LC video person charges..

Howdy everyone!

 

I have been surfing around on this amazing website for a while now but I thought I better introduce myself on the (new) Las Caletas thread.  I was lucky enough to look through Andi's photo album from her wedding down at Las Caletas and boy I tell ya, I was hooked! (Thanks again Andi for that!) wink.gif  Soooo, my FI and I booked our day for June 11th, 2010!!  June was a little late in the year for my first choice but the "available dates" were becoming unavailable at the drop of a dime so I had to act quick. I have to say, Las Caletas looks like a very popular place to get hitched and with reason.  From all the pictures to all the reviews I have read, it seems unreal how beautiful and amazing it is.

 

Anyways, as far as planning, I have sent out my STD's (those message in a bottles with a personal touch...they were really cute!) and am in the process of finding my formal invites to send out so we can get a more solid idea of who is RSVP-ing.  I think we are going to stay at the Vallarta Palace up in Nuevo Vallarta also but that will be determined here within a week or two.

 

So, that's that.  I will be on here constantly throughout the year buggin' you guys for answers, help and direction.

 

Thanks for everything and look forward to speaking with y'all here soon!

 

Cheers!

    • 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
