Las Caletas Brides ~ Post HERE! (THREAD CLOSED)

Recommended Posts

Pazoop - My guests and I are all arriving on the 16th.. with Nolitours. We looked at sunwing but chose the Nolitour package cause the flight left early in the morning so we could hang out on friday on the beach. And of course they called my this weekend and said that they cancelled that flight and everyone will be leaving on a different flight 13 hours later. I was mad, but I can't do anything. All they could say was "all flights are subject to change". I am just glad the wedding is not on the 17th, then I would be really mad. So I wish that I had gone with sunwing now. Cause we are now arriving in PV at 1230 am... It'll be hard for the young kids. But whatever.

 

We are staying for two weeks, so my guests will be flying home without us and as for the second week.... it's a surprise. So I have no idea.. I was told a different hotel and I was told to pack light. Which just means I will be sending an extra suitcase home after the first week with my mom.

Just an FYI to Sunday brides, the timing can change because they dont do day tours on Sunday. We are having our guests board the boat at 3:30. I also wanted more reception time, so moved things around. They are really flexible.

What do people suggest? Did you go with a filling? Did anyone do chocolate cake? Does it taste like traditional wedding cake?

Thanks!!
We just did a simple cake - here's a picture. I can't remember if it was chocolate or white cake!

I'm filling in the areas on our Web site and am coming up blank on some of the details. The wedding isn't until Nov. 7 of 09 so we haven't really sat down with the details yet.
I posted mine on this site somewhere, let me see if I can find them.

Did all or any of you trash your wedding dress the night of or the next day? (By trash I guess I mean get wet).

 

I want to, but am thinking about bringing it home all wet? Hmmm.... Was it a total hassle. I will be sending it with my mother if I do do it.

I did the next day. However, we had 7 more days in PV before we left so I didn't have to worry about my dress being wet on the way home.

But traveling with a wet dress wouldn't have changed my mind about TTD. It was so much fun and I love the pics so I would have still done it even if we left PV that same day. Would have just thrown the dress in a large plastic bag and then hung it up to dry at home.

I was supposed to, but didn't feel good so we ended up canceling. So bummed! But I hadn't thought about the logistics of it all. How long after before you leave?

Thank you guys so much for all of your stuff girls. It definitely helped. I'm SO excited -I went to Denver this weekend to shop with my mom and sister in law for my dress and found THE ONE after about 40 minutes. It's so funny. I never really believed in that "when you see the right dress you'll know" stuff but it was so true for me.

And the creme brulee and mousse is not included in the price, Nicole is working on a price to have them done for me. But because we are not having a cake which is included she said she would take some money off the price of the individual desserts. I'll let you know.
Yeah I'd love to know the pricing when you get it. THanks! :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
