      I'd give you points to do that, but I dont have access to the vbPlaza ... dang!

      I haven't been around much, ladies, but I wanted to pop in and say hi. And a special welcome to the "newer" Caletas brides .. I never get tired of hearing about the details and seeing the pictures.

        Hello Ladies!

        Just checking in... it's been a while. I visited the new LC website and love it! I was actually wishing they would update it... and vuala! they did it!

        I hope you all had a great summer!

          Hi ladies,

          I am planning on getting married in PV and was thinking of possibly Las Caletas. Since there are almost 200 pages of this thread, I was hoping those of you who are planning or have already wed there could answer my questions...

          I am already legally married (Justice of the Peace), but we never got a chance to really celebrate, so we're planning on a religious ceremony and a party with friends and family. The guest list might be about 150 people (including children and babies), so I was wondering what the cost of a buffet would be at Las Caletas for this number of people? And what's the average rate for a Fri/Sat/Sun at the end of April?

          Right now, my plan is to get married at the Botanic Gardens. The total cost for 150 people, food & drinks (plus tip), site fee, coordination fee, tip for wait staff, and transportation for the whole group (3 buses) is about $4500 USD. I was wondering how Las Caletas might compare in costs?

          We're also planning on a church ceremony, and from what I've read, it might be $300 USD for that. For those who got married or are getting married at Our Lady of Guadalupe, what was the process to get married there?

          Thanks in advance for any help. :)

            we were seriously considering the botanical gardens as well and when crunching the numbers and comparing them, there really wasn't much of a difference. the initial figure looks a lot larger at LC but when you start thinking about all the extra vendors you need to add on to the botanical garden figures, it all evens out. i was blown away by the per person cost of food and the ridiculously inexpensive site rental & coordination fee of the gardens, but start adding the rest in and it makes sense. BUT - you are saying your total cost for 150 is 4500 USD and when we looked into it and added in entertainment, drinks, etc...for 80 (at the end of april), it was about 8K...

            one thing that made a MAJOR difference in our decision was the boat ride to LC. hands down, decision was made not 10 minutes out of the marina. the ride to the gardens by bus is windy and really not too exciting to look at.

            so i guess what i'm saying is that i feel we are definitely getting more bang for our buck at LC over the gardens, and our guests are, without a doubt, going to appreciate the whole experience, start to finish, beginning with the boat ride much more.

            wow, i feel i must sound so biased! ha - sorry about that...but know that i think the gardens are absolutely incredible and stunning...an excellent choice.

            keep us posted on your decision!

              Has anyone used the photography services provided by Las Caletas? Looks pretty good from their website.... but I would like to get personal reviews/recommendations/advice. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

                I am using them in November and will be happy to give some feedback then...so far, I've been totally thrilled with Kelley and the level of service! I think I've gone through every slideshow they have!!! It all starts to look the same, but the good news is, my guests won't know that!!!

                  Ok - I would not normally do this, but I've seen a lot of people ask and I found this on the LC twitter page...

                  after 2 years of planning, JaimeLynn&Martin have their day! http://www.elizabeth...raphy.com/JM09/... LONG AWAITED SLIDESHOW!!

                  I hope I'm forgiven for linking to someone else's pics, but I love them and they make me look forward to my own!!

                    haha - Erin I didn't even realize that LC had a twitter page but then again I cannot get into twittering for the life of me, i just don't get it!

                    anyway, JaimeLynne won't mind...she actually had a thread on her slideshow already!
