Las Caletas Brides ~ Post HERE! (THREAD CLOSED)

Recommended Posts

We had fans too...ours were actually program fans but yes - people used them! In some of our pics you can see people on the dance floor fanning themselves as they dance. It was warm (in June) even after sunset.

We had program fans as well, but I don't think we really needed them, it wasn't overly warm in February - especially after sunset! They made for a good picture anyway!

Me too. I really do love the idea of LC, just not the boat ride to and from. I'm concerned that I will be full of nerves and the boat ride just might send me over the edge if ya know what I mean. However, we figure at the very least it is definitely worth checking out and would be a fun group tour to do. Nicole just sent over the proposal for 40 people and I am very pleasantly surprised at the cost!!! It definitely sounds like a great option.

QUESTION: How many of you received hesitation from your guests about the boat ride?? That is my main concern right now.

My mom gets super sick from motion sickness. She did the Rhythms of the Night tour last time she was in PV and loved it. She didn't get sick at all. She didn't even take anything for it, so I don't know if that was a fluke thing.

 

I'm concerned about getting sick, but I'm going over on the morning boat so I will have quite a bit of time to recover. So far my grandmother has been the only one to express concern, besides me. haha

 

I thought I was going to be ok until I watched Linday's video. It was rough! But if you do a day trip there, you will see what it's like.

 

Most guests have completely overlooked the boat journey and concentrated on the 7 hours of open bar. :)

ditto! Paul's mom got a little queasy on the way over (not sure if she got sick or not) but never complained at all. Nobody expressed concern to us - I think they were more focused on the fun, positive aspects of the evening. It just wasn't a huge deal to our group - or at least nobody made me aware of it!

No hesitation really, everyone thought the idea was so freakin awesome that they were going whether they got sick or not.

MOH was only on a boat once before and got sick so she was on edge for our boat. She was nervous the whole cab ride to the marina. She took the dramamine, but still got sick. Later we found out she snuck 2 more so she took 3 pills for the 1 hr boat ride!! She basically overdosed and I think that's why she threw up....she also was falling asleep. Duh smile105.gif

So tell your guests to take drugs according to the label....except the whole avoiding alcohol thing, you gotta drink! LOL Our other sick people refused dramamine. BUT, the good thing about seasickness - if it happens - is you feel better as soon as you step on terra firma.....hopefully yours will be a smooth ride!

I usually get boat sick so I stayed on the main level of the boat. It worked for me and I didn't get queezey(sp) on the way there or back.

 

Jamie i think you will fall inlove with L.C in person too.... I sure did

Well when we showed the pics to my Grandparents yesterday they both expressed quite a bit of concern on going over on the boat. My Grandma said "We come from a family full of motion sick people". She said she will support whatever we decide but I still feel like they really don't want us to have it there. They keep coming up with things like "What if ppl get sick? What if they need to come back early?, What if they get hurt? What if the weather is bad?"

 

I love my Grandparents to death (they helped raise me growing up so they're like a second set of parents) but my Grandma really made me upset yesterday! It was really hard to move past that and focus on enjoying the rest of Christmas. We haven't told Martin's parents about it yet. Honestly I'm also afraid of all the older or sickly people (FI's aunt just had brain surgery and they want to come) walking around the island in the dark. And now if someone does get seasick or whatever I'll feel really guilty. I honestly haven't made my decision but I almost want to have it there just to spite my Grandparents now - isn't that horrible?! Martin is really pushing for LC but I do still want to discuss other options (Terra Noble, Mayan Palace) and I feel like he is somewhat close minded on the issue. I know I can't please everyone but a BIG thing to us both is that the majority of our immediate family comes and I'm afraid that some that were for sure coming might not come if they know there's a boat ride involved...

Shoot....I know how much it sucks when others aren't as excited as you are and kind of shoot you down. They mean well, of course, but this whole DW thing is new to a lot of people...especially of your grandparents' generation.

 

Will it help if you share the experiences of people here, and how most did not get sick?

 

Also, once at LC if there is an emergency of sorts where someone must leave, they can arrange that. If it rains, there are covered areas on the boat as well as covered areas at LC that the ceremony/reception can be held. If you end up at LC I'm sure they will change their tune once they see it.

Why not leave out small details about the boat trip, so that people don't freak out. Or just inform them that there is no reason to worry because Dramamine or other motion sickness stuff is available. Also, try showing pictures of LC. My family was a bit concerned, but when they saw the pictures of the area they completely forgot about the ride over.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
