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!

    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
    • It's really tough when you put your heart and soul into planning your destination wedding and people aren't supportive for whatever reason. I think maybe letting people know how much it will cost for 2 weeks may be an issue -- a lot of people can't take that much time off and I"m guessing because it's such an extended period of time, the price may seem high to her. A good way of presenting a destination wedding celebration is to give rates based on 4 days, 3 nights -- which is typically what resorts will require for a group booking. This way, people will view it more of an extended weekend celebration and the time off as well as the costs becomes much more feasible to people. More likely, you'll have guests who will opt to stay longer and at that point you just let them know how much the extra cost will be. I suggest you talk to your best friend straight up about this and let her know how important it is for her to be there and find out what is holding her back. Communication is key!!
