I just got a quote on the Paradise package and it does come with an Open Bar (Includes: Tequila, Vodka, Rum, Mixed Drinks, Soft Drinks, Juices, Bottled Water, etc)

actually no...in all honesty I never knew such a cool place even existed until I came across the BDW...and I looked at Ann's slideshow one night...OMG! after I watched it a couple times with tears in my eyes I knew I had to convince my (then) FI that it was a place for us!
Seriously...now I can't imagine our wedding being anywhere else. Before I found Caletas we were going to have our wedding at the Vallarta Palace (where our group ended up staying) now don't get me wrong...the Palace is nice...but wow...there are no words to describe an LC wedding!
One thing that we ended up LOVING but didn't really think about when booking was the fact that Caletas is totally private! I knew I wanted a destination wedding but I didn't want all the other tourists at the resort to watch our ceremony KWIM? my DH later told me that alone was worth it! we actually watched a couple weddings at the palace when we were there...well not watched but saw them occuring...when I saw those weddings as beautiful as they were on the beach....I had no doubts in my mind about the location of ours
Nicole (and Kelly too ) are AMAZING you can't go wrong with them...so helpful...
I look back now too on my actual day...how many other brides can say they started out their wedding day on a boat with a life jacket! my wedding day was AWESOME...it was so cool to spend the day at Caletas with my mom and aunts (I didn't have a wedding party) we drank margaritas and kayaked... I always heard about brides being so stressed on their day...not me...I was cool as cucumber and it was the best day of my life!
I am still waiting for my pro pics...when I get them I will be sure to share!
ok, so i could go on and on about why you should choose LC...but go with what is going to be best for you guys...after all it is your day and you only do it once!

I gotta say though, the boat ride was the one thing I was very hesitant at first about. I didn't want anyone to totally hate being on a boat for an hour so we did think long and hard about that and if it was worth it. well it was! We didn't think when we started planning early on that our grandmas would be able to come to the wedding (they are older and NEVER travel) well both my DH's grandma and my grandma came (also my great aunt who too is older). but the staff had wheelchairs for them and it was just so special to have my grandma there....apparently too the boat ride was very choppy on the way over for the wedding...thank goodness though nobody got sick!
I could talk all day about Las Caletas and how much I love it! Jaime and I would get together (online of course) and chat about our upcoming weddings and every aspect of it! so if you ever need help I am here still!
Speaking of Jaime...
Jaime...hurry up and get back from that honeymoon of yours already would you?! I am DYING TO SEE SOME OF YOUR PICS! --> This is me until I see some teaser pics at least!!!!!!!!

Oh, funny story. i was at a friend's baby's birthday party last weekend (Paul, Gwen, and I) and this girl approached me. she was a little hesitant at first, but then kind of asked me if I had pictures of Gwen online or something, that she looked familiar. and asked if we got married in Mexico, etc.
turns out she was researching places for her sister to get married, came across this forum and my posts on Caletas. i was kind of embarassed, because 1) paul likes to give me a hard time about still being on here and 2) he's right - it's been almost 2 YEARS since my wedding! but i just can't leave! lol
anyway, i told her that without a doubt, it was an amazing experience. so, Rebecca, if you're reading this ... i hope your sister decides to go with Caletas!!!! (and I also hope that I am invited - HA!)

Thanks Andi your such a sweetie, I am dying for Jaime too get back too! i cant wait for the teaser pics! I will definitely be enlisting your help and Jaime's tooo! gah so exciting.
K ladies - I just have to say for now that it was AMAZING! I only had one tiny bridezilla moment (BIL decided to move himself to another table when we'd gone over and over the seating chart trying to separate and mingle certain ppl if ya know what I mean...and for some reason it just totally irked me! I think I was also just reallllly tired and cranky by that point, lol). But it was just so cool... I keep remembering more little bits and parts and I'll totally tear up... and I remember Brad's eyes, I just stared into his amazing blue eyes almost the whole time (though Andi I did take a moment to stare out at the ocean and take a deep breath like you said! ), don't think I'll ever forget those eyes!!!
Promise to write more later!
LC is DEFINITELY the way to go!!!!!!
