Hi there!

 

Thank you to all the brides who have posted their insight and reviews on Las Caletas. It is always a little harder to plan a destination wedding and your information really helps me visualize how the day would go and what to expect. And all of your photos...WOW! So many stunning brides! I'm very excited and am in the process of booking our wedding with Kelley for 2011!

 

Just wondering, for the brides who left for Las Caletas early in the morning, with the bridal party...did you pay extra or arrange an additional spa excursion to be at Las Caletas all day (for massages, swimming, etc)? I am getting the premier/platinum package, and Kelley describes the day with me riding the catamaran out to Las Caletas with our guests. I'd much rather go earlier and relax in the morning.

 

Also, based on the reviews it sounds like insects were not a problem, but I want to ask anyways. Did anyone have issues with mosquitoes or other insects coming out at dusk? Should I plan ahead for that?

 

Thanks again!

Melissa

That is the package I got.. and I went out early in the day with my mom and 2 bridesmaids! It is totally worth it.. you should ask her about that!

 

Kelley is AWESOME! You will love working with her! She makes everything so easy and fun!

 

As for bugs.. yes.. I got bit a few times out there. So I would suggest some bug spray. You are around a lot of trees and whatnot.. but I didnt have much of a problem at all.

We also got the premier package, but we didn't have a bridal party. DH and I headed out to LC at noon. Once there, we got massages, relaxed in the jacuzzi and then started to get ready. It was really nice to be able to head out early and just relax before the big event. Kelley made sure we stayed on track so we wouldnt run late....you kinda lose track of time there! As for mosquitos, no one had mosquito bites. We took bug spray but didnt end up using it at all.

Thanks Ideavila, it puts my mind at ease that I can bring bug spray as back up but will not have to worry too much about the insects.

Congratulations! Your dress is amazing!

Okay, good to know. It sounds like a little bug spray as back up won't hurt but that overall they are not an issue. And I am thinking I <i>definitely</i> want to arrange to go there early for some massages and relaxation!

It was GREAT to be out there early. My mom and friends and I just relaxed and talked all day! The day flies by so it is nice to get away from all of the hustle of the wedding and just relax for awhile. The lunch they serve you is great and you get to snorkel or kayak even if you want to. Totally worth it!

    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
