Las Caletas Brides ~ Post HERE! (THREAD CLOSED)

Recommended Posts

Ok, for those that have had their wedding already: Did you were shoes with a high heel? I am concerned that the stairs leading to the ceremony are steep adn slippery and I'd be scared to slip and fall if I wear high heel shoes.....lol.

Hi--IDEAVILA i don't come on here often but i did see your wedding date is may 10th, 2010 and that you were looking for a photographer. We are getting married at Las Caletas on may 5th. We felt the prices that were part of the package at Las Caletas were too expensive as well, so we ended up booking a photographer from Portland. He used to live in Puerto Vallarta and has done about 15-20 weddings at Las Caletas. Nicole at Adventure weddings highly recommends him as well. His name is Nathan Cordova.....his website is license to Still

anyways, to get to the point-- his 7 hour package is only $700 which includes a dvd of 400-600 pictures with about a third being done in black and white. we had to pay for his airfare which was $375 form portland to mexico and then $20 for the 3 days he'll be there as per diem

I had the same concern about heels on the stairs and sand. My hubby is a lot taller than I am and kept telling that heels were a must...he is crazy though.

I ended up getting platform flip flops (similar to this link: Victoria's Secret - Wide strap flip-flop)

I got nervous right at the end to even walk down the stairs in those! so i had nicole set them at the bottom of the stairs (or the ones coming from the bridal casita) for me and I was going to put them on...well I forgot! I actually didn't wear any shoes for about 95% of the reception/ceremony, I ended up being more comfortable without them! Not that I recommend doing that though, I actually do wish I had them on for the ceremony...oh well, just a minor detail!

In this pic you can actually see them sitting at the top of the stairs! haahaha

Andi, that's so funny that you forgot to wear your shoes! BTW, is your Bouquet the one that they comes included in LC wedding package or did you upgrade to another one? It's beautiful!

I know there have been posts about "tipping" but if anyone can give me a quick answer that would be great. i'm just wondering what a reasonable amount is to tip Nicole, and then the minister as well. thanks

as for shoes... i didn't wear any.. at all. i had a pair of flip flops, but i never put them on. all of our guests had their shoes off as well. everyone was running around in the sand, up and down the stairs, it just made sense not to wear shoes

 

also, the stairs are no big deal, at all. they aren't rough or steep or slippery. i ran up and down them all night long, no issues.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
