I was like, I don't get it - why should I recognize this dress?! lol DUH! not sure what i was looking at, but i didn't see the TTD pics. NOW I see the dress! lol It looks great on you, much better than it did on me.

            Hey Tara - I love the pics!! I was super excited to hear that you loved Fernando's work and that he "made the hair pretty" :)! I'm in the process of booking him too, so that helps in making my decision. Congrats!!

              Hi Everyone,

              These pics look amazing. I am getting married at Las Caletas 2/28/2009 it is coming up so fast! It is so nice to see everyone's pics it makes me feel a lot better. I am new to this so I still am unsure of how to do things on here.

              My coordinator is Kelley and she has been great. I am just now starting to hammer out all the details and I am having such a hard time with colors and things like that. But seeing everyones pics helps!

                  It fit great and I loved it (THANK YOU, ANN), but once it got wet at the TTD, it became VERY see-through. The other guests at the pool got an eye full (I wasn't even wearing panties).

                    Hey guys! I need some help...or something...
                    I searched for a related thread but had trouble finding one so I'm posting on the trusty LC thread.
                    My fiance and I are putting the deposit down today for our Nov. 7-09 wedding at Las Caletas (if we can get in touch with Nicole...she's a busy girl). After getting off the phone with my mom today I discovered that she's really, really upset that we're planning a wedding in Mexico. With the economy as horrendously ugly as it is right now she doesn't think that anyone will be able to show up and that we will end up being heartbroken over paying a lot of money for less than 10 guests. So..because she's my mother..she has put serious doubts in my mind. How many people showed up for you? What price do people consider acceptable for travel and airfare packages? Ugh. This is so frustrating. We haven't been able to get travel details hammered out yet because agents are telling us that airlines don't release flights until 11 months prior to the travel date.
                    I know that the main focus shouldn't be about the wedding (blahblah) but the marriage but I am really stressed out. Go figure, a stressed out bride to be.
                    Any suggestions?

                      Hey There,

                      I know she is your mom, BUT I think it is important to plan your wedding as you and your FI want to. If you are truly set on a DW wedding in Mexico then that is what you should do. If you are ok with the possibility of less than 10 guests attending then go for it! Remember in the end it is your day (you and your FI).

                      I know it can be frustrating in the beginning...a year out is a long time to plan ahead. I too booked LC about a year out and airfare and hotel prices were not yet available. In the beginning for us I think my parents were very hesitant about having the wedding in Mexico but the more I talked to them about how sure I was of what I wanted they came around and are pretty excited now. Just to "show" them that everything will be just fine when we get down to Mexico, I invited my parents to go with me next month on our site visit...that way their minds will be more at ease come wedding time in April.
