I am looking at Las Caletas but have a question maybe some of you can help me with... does the Paradise package (the middle package) come with an open bar, or is it just the Premier package that comes with it??

 

Thanks!

rofl.gif just book it and tell him later wink.gif that is what I did!

 

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! popcorn.gif 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!

All the pics from LC are great! Ann's slideshow won me over but then I was always (and still am actually) dying to see every LC bride come back from their wedding and hear all about it and see the pics! Every time I saw anyone's pics I was always day dreaming about our wedding at the same time, I usually end up with tears in my eyes on every slideshow!

 

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! --> girl_werewolf.gif This is me until I see some teaser pics at least!!!!!!!!

awwwww! i got tears in my eyes. you two are too sweet! it really makes me want to go back to Caletas just to experience it again. i hope to take Gwen there someday.


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!)

I am sooo excited and yet the next minute I could cry at any moment! It is so unlike me because I am not one to be emotional- possibly nerves and all the last minute craziness?
That was EXACTLY how I felt!!!! wink.gif

I totally agree! I thought I'd be a ball of nerves but hell no - I was soooo relaxed! Our little boat ride over there (since it was a Sunday we took a different boat than normal) was AWESOME! My MOH kept screaming "Sweet!!! I didn't realize a ride from Six Flags was included!" LOL It was sooooooooooo much FUN!!!!

Oh I love that! :)

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! wink.gif), don't think I'll ever forget those eyes!!!

Promise to write more later!

LC is DEFINITELY the way to go!!!!!!

    • 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.
