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!

I will give my review with photos when I am home!!

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.

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
