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

Recommended Posts


I think they both look really nice!  Your second dress is definitely more fun and unique.  I agree that it just come down to which dress you feel is "the one."  My dress is actually a satin mermaid.  I originally purchased a more beach-appropriate dress made out of chiffon, but I later realized that I liked photos of  brides with fancy gowns on the beach.... something about it not fitting the venue looked cool to me, lol.

I was really worried about being to hot in it and also about being able to move around well....lots of stairs as I found out from my site inspection. I'm alot more comfortable in the 2nd dress

Ok, I just returned from my Las Caletas wedding.  Amazing.   Few pointers.  Fernando is WELL worth the money.  He does amazing work on make-up and hair.  I was worried because I typically go "natural" and didnt want to look like a painted picture of make-up.  He's truly worth every single penny.

 

For anyone considering a photographer, I went with Eva Sica w/ photoshootsvallarta and she did fabulous work.  I was a little nervous because everyone that I wanted was already booked.  She's new to the area and had only shot one other wedding @ Las Caletas before mine.  I got my pictures yesterday and was MORE than happy with her work.  Oh, and she's SUPER reasonable.   Once I get a little more time, I'll share the photos.

 

Just thought I'd throw in some quick comments.

My wedding was on November 3, 2010.  The weather was FABULOUS.  There was a slight breeze the entire day.  The wedding reception, everyone was comfortable and loved having "pashmina's" to wrap up in.  I would say that November is a great month for a wedding ceremony.  Nobody was complaining about being hot or uncomfortable.  I didnt need chair fans for anyone (thankfully I opted out of them). 

 

I was really happy with Eva's work (photog).  She's super sweet, tries to get new/unusual shots while still capturing the most important shots that every bride wants.  She's worth looking into. 
 

The only complaint out of anyone was the stairs heading up to the casita.  It's a short little hike and someone with bad knees might have a problem (as my aunt did).  Some said that they didnt want to go up and down to go for activities b/c it was too exhausting.

 

Tips for the casita: if you plan on taking a shower, make sure you bring your own products, there wasnt anything there and Fernando wished that he start with clean/washed hair.  He will blow dry.  There isnt a lot of room or outlets, bring an extra extension cord and or outlets if you have several gals getting ready.   If you want to use the hot tub, make sure to tell Kelley to have it ready....we had to fill it up ourselves which took a little bit of time to do.

    • 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
