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

Recommended Posts

kya-

Fernando is amazing and is well worth the money.  Kelley sets up everything for you.  Take inspiration photos.  I was so nervous not meeting him beforehand, but I promise you, he's worth it.  He spends about 2 1/2 hours (I have long hair) and I was so pleased with his work.  I think he works exclusively with Las Caletas and owns his own salon in Bucerias.  I havent heard any past brides compain about his hair/make-up.  If you can swing the price, he's worth it.

Thanks Nessa! From everything I have read, I am definitely going to go with Fernando. I also have very long hair, so I expect it will take a long time also. I still have to figure out how I would like it to be done, it's a good thing I have a year :) I don't ever do too much with my hair so I'll have to start searching some sight or mags for ideas.

Has anyone used a DJ outside of Kelley's list?  My fiance and I are really into dance music that is remixed with high energy, and not all DJs have that type of music.  We thought about doing some research on local Puerto Vallarta DJs that play at the local clubs but haven't started yet. 

If anyone has gone with a different DJ that plays more "dance" music, could you direct me to their website or provide info?

Thanks!

Hello,

 

We had the same issue. My soon to be brother in law is a house DJ and producer so we wanted someone that was more our taste. When is your wedding? We are bringing someone with us to do ours. I went out a few times when I was there. I will look up the name of the club we went to..the DJ was great.

choeft201 - my wedding is just under 9 months from today - October 20, 2011.  If you find the name of the DJ that you liked, can you forward his name to me?  That would be tremendously helpful!!  Hopefully he had some samples I can listen to.

 

Lesley - I haven't been to LC (yet) so I can't comment on the DJs Kelley has, but it sounds like they will play whatever music you want, you can even give them a playlist of songs. The songs we like are sometimes hard to find or unique remixes to popular songs that the DJ may not necessarily have or be able to find through his music sources so I'm just doing some research to see what else is out there  :)   I have read great reviews from the people that have hired Kelley's DJs so I wouldn't worry there if that is the route you are taking!

Lesley - I haven't been to LC (yet) so I can't comment on the DJs on Kelley's list, but I know they will play the music you want them to or you can give them a playlist to work from.  The type of music I like is unique and sometimes hard to find remixes to the songs so I don't know if Kelley's DJs have access to this type of music.  I am just doing research to see what else is out there before I get into crunch time. :)  I have heard great reviews of Kelley's DJs though so if that is the route you are taking, I think you are just fine. :)

Another option is to burn the mixes you like to CD or put on your IPOD and give to the DJ to play. I will try to find the name

I was wondering if any LC brides had done "boarding" passes for their guest to board the catamaran... I was thinking about doing that and putting them in the OOT Bags. Any thoughts about that??? Or where one could make something like that or find a template???

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
