Thank you. My wedding dress was a monique lhuillier - spent way too much money on it but it was the only dress I felt good in. And I'm so glad I chose lace overlay b/c it was so hot and i was sweating so badly:) I'm glad I read Ann and "starchild's" thread before my wedding b/c they suggested I bring another dress to change into and I think that one was a Max Studio dress.

Your pictures are great - like Jamy said, I just never tired of looking at photos from LC.

the smiles on your faces are sooo genuine - you can just see how happy you were!
Ann thanks for all your threads and advice on Las Caletas. It really helped hearing others experience of Las Caletas - especially when planning a wedding site unseen. On another note - congratulations - are you having a baby?

awww - you're welcome! i'm just glad i can help other brides and grooms the way this forum helped me to plan as well. it's both exciting and a little nerve racking getting married somewhere you've never seen, other than in photos! but i knew you wouldn't be let down ... glad i (we!) was right!

and YES - we're having a baby! we're due in July 2008 ... and so excited! so much for the anniversary trip to Caletas, but we'll make it back - i swear!

i now picture bringing our kids there on a family vaction, doing the day trip or something, and saying "this is where mommy and daddy were married" - how cool would that be?

Love your pictures! The photog did an amazing job. It's crazy that every wedding you see LC in a different way. I love the way it's able to still look unique after all the weddings we have viewed!

 

Congrats. You looked beautiful and it looks like your people had a fabulous time! Why were a couple of them wet? haha

Heather - what a beautiful wedding! We just had a site visit there on Tuesday and it was wonderful!!! One question - did you have any trouble getting down the stairs on your "grand entrance"?? There are so many! That was pretty much my only concern. It is such a beautiful location - love it!!!! :)

I love your slideshow!!

 

I have a couple of questions...

 

How much was your photographer?

 

Who did your hair? Did your boat them over from PV?

The stairs weren't too bad. I was a little nervous about the stairs too when I saw them. I had wedge shoes and I'm pretty good at walking in high heels so I just went slow. You can always leave your shoes close to the bottom of the stairs if you want. I also changed into flip flop style shoes immediately after the ceremony. I would recommend that you not spend money on the shoes and just be comfortable.

My photographer was a little expensive but I wanted to make sure that my pictures were great - especially since I'm not very photogenic. He's out of California so you have to pay for is air fare and a couple night hotel stay. He was awesome though. He is really cool and down to earth. And he took so many pictures. In the cost he also did a half day engagement session the day before the wedding at different spots around PV. I think he's # is on the slide show to get his current rates.
As far as my hair - Nicole booked it with a stylist from a local salon. I did a trial run a couple of days before the wedding which is highly recommended!! B/c unless you speak spanish you may need a translator. Thank goodness my step mom speaks spanish so she was able to translate what I really wanted the day of - for instance not so much hairspray!! They love the hairspray! Nicole arranged for the stylists to come over on a seperate boat around 2:30 before everyone else showed up. Ask Nicole for pricing.

    • 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.
