Las Caletas Brides ~ Post HERE! (THREAD CLOSED)

Recommended Posts

Hey gals. I am also getting married at Las Caletas. My father-in-law to be gets really seasick. We did a site visit, he took dramamine and was fine as well. He is not looking forward to the boat ride, but I think that you really need to do what you want and everyone will be fine once they see the location and realize the ride isn't bad.

 

Quick question for the married ones... my fiance and I took dance lessons and have a salsa dance to perform for our first dance. i bought shoes to wear on the dance floor, only for that dance so I can spin and everything. What material is the dance floor? Will I be able to spin? Thanks

You'll be able to spin...it is some kind of wood I think? Ours was covered with an astro-turf type material, and I know Ann's dancefloor had some mats on top of that which may not be the best for spinning in heels (like the mats we're on in my siggy pic). Ask your WC what your options are.

 

I think it's great that you're doing salsa!

I think our oldest guest was 68. She has bad knees and just took her time. The LC staff also brought a solid chair down to the beach for her to sit around the bonfire because there was no way she was getting in and out of those low beach chairs.

Do you guys know there is an orchid garden up in the hills at LC? We meant to get some pics there but after the group and family shots, the highest up we made it was to the bed...the garden is even higher than that but we wanted to go join the party so we said screw it. Maybe everyone does that and that's why there are never pics there? LOL

 

Maybe someone else will discover it one of these days....

First off, what is this bed y'all are talking about? Are you talking about the one in the casita?? Also, I knew about the Orchid Gardens but we never made it up there on our site visit either... We spent so much time with Kelley that we only had 30 minutes towards the end of the tour to relax on the beach with a cocktail. We even missed out on the monkeys which I was really looking forward to! sad.gif I really want to go back. Since we paid for this site visit I think we will use our free one before the wedding to go check out these spots...

I haven't seen in personally, but I know Jamy had some pics taken there- and even had it in her siggy at one point. It's different from the one in the casita.

I missed the monkeys too :o( Anyone check out the little John Huston museum? It had cool pics of Liz Taylor in PV and his personal stuff. My mom and I checked it out on our site visit, it was interesting.

 

So the bed, it is up one of the jungle paths. I only found it because we're explorers and on our site visit went looking for places to take pics at our wedding (2 days later). We layed on the bed and nobody passed by the whole time (trust me *wink*). I don't think it's on the map and the tour groups mainly stay by the water so they don't venture that direction.

 

My photog shoots at LC all the time and said he never knew it was there...lol The view kicks ass during the day especially, when the water is emerald...ahhhhhh We took most of our pics there because it was so comfy and cool...here are a few:

    • 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.
    • 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?
