If I'm correct she said yes to fondant due to their new equipment. :) In 2 wks she said they'd be getting that equipment.

 

"The cake will be fine, they are getting some new decorating tools in the next 2 weeks and they say they can do anything." Quote from the bakers to Nicole. wink.gif"

 

Send her an email and make sure thats correct wink.gif but it appears they can now do many things. I'm telling you girls )brides...Las Caletas is going to be a big deal w/ brides very soon in terms of matching up head to head w/ the hotels in PV. I'm glad we are coming in on the beginning of the progress.smile29.gif

No kidding! Especially since rates have gone up since I booked. I'm sure they will continue to rise. Lucky us! At least I got a deal on ONE thing for this wedding. :)

funny, my initial reaction to this was almost disappointment! one of the things i loved about Caletas was the "back to the basics" feeling, and the intimacy that lead to (why do I have this weird feeling Jamy will agree with me, lol). sillly, nostalgic me! blah.gif

Here I am, agreeing with Ann as predicted...hahaha I do think it's cool that they are getting the new stuff for people with fancier taste, but I loved my simple cake and it sure was tasty. Shoot, I thought it was fancy that they picked flowers to put on it, lol.

ditto! that was one of the things i ended up loving about Caletas. the candles for light, the gorgeous, but "natural" surroundings, etc. if it turned into a commercial place that was just like any other resort i'd be disappointed, to be honest.

sorry! offtopic2.gif

I think the greatest thing about Las Caletas is that a bride can have her dream wedding in whatever vision she and the staff can accommodate. Las Caletas will always be the natural setting due to its protection enviromentally but for some brides those extra things mean a lot. The fact that Las Caletas is such a beautiful place will eventually bring more couples to enjoy their moments there. I think its a wonderful opportunity for anyone to have what appears to be their own private island for 5 or so hours. As I've gone through hundreds of photos and sites looking at each brides choices...I found them unique and beautiful in their own way. I'm so happy Chris and I get to experience Las Caletas in our way. John Huston's Paradise is about to be shared with many others who will also interpret their vision...and that's a good thing. msnwink.gif and its in part due to many of us who will share it with our family and friends. That's how we found LC through a friend and now we go to share it with ours. Its inevitable that Las Caletas become a popular wedding venue, for all the reasons we fell in love with it. But fret not ladies the cove is protected and will always remain that natural cove, simple and God given.

Did anyone else just not have a cake? When I read about the dessert buffet, my thought was "who needs cakehuh.gif" msnparty.gif

 

Now I'm questioning my decision... I'd love to know more about the dessert buffet. Honestly, I think Roberto and I would be fine having a ceremonial brownie cutting. Ha! rofl.gif But I want to know from some of the folks who were there... was the dessert buffet enough?

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
