Chris and Vanessa are Married and Back...Las Caletas Bride

Recommended Posts

Thanks Starchild.

 

The new colour is nice but I wish they would have waited to renvate until after April. I guess the colour is more suitable for several weddings.

Hi Brides (to be)

 

I am trying so hard to post some pics. My computer is not working with me. I have so many pics and trying to figure out the best way to show everyone. In the meantime, if you want to send me a private message w/ your email I will send the ofoto/Kodak slides I have right now. Otherwise, give me about a week to figure this out. I have so many pics to show you. But I will say this:

 

There is no need to over due the decor at Las Caletas. We tried and in the end we allowed Nicole and Kelly to do whatever they thought best. This is not like any wedding you've attended before. Everything gets lost in the beauty of the Cove and natural surroundings. It went by much to fast and so many things are a blur. But the guests did enjoy their cigars. A big hit. The sand ceremony was an added plus for all. If you get married during this winter time...please know that your LIGHT will disappear within minutes of the next. Chris and I did NOT get our pretty wedding couple photos because we were trying to get our families pics together after many of the long travels to see our wedding. Soooooo. I really dont know how to handle that except perhaps do the lovely ones of you two FIRST. But I am not kidding the light is GONE..........then it becomes beautiful candlelight but thats not so keen on camera shots. So much to tell you. The spa was great with 13 women. The bridal house is small but very lovely and we were out in the back area w/ whirlpool and hammock. It was very easy to be in there, because we just made room for ourselves throughout the inside and outside of the suite. It is so pretty you will not believe it. The walk to the bridal room from the boat is quite a hike. If you bring someone who has some trouble with that, just know they will take their time and get there in about 10 mins. Slow take pics and enjoy the walk. hahaha Its uphill but not something you cant do just only want to do it once :) hahaha The hill steps going down are much easier because Nicole and Kelly have a shorter way to get down. The guys are right up the first flight over the bar so no problem for them. Our grandparents stayed on the sand and did not go to the first level. That worked out so much better. Even though you are going to see some people in our pics as they took them, it didnt matter to Chris and I because it was all part of the experience. I will have other things to say later. But if you want some pics quickly send those email addy's. I will note the title as wedding pics. Okay have to run to watch the Cowboys win wink.gif BB soon.

I'm sad the wall is no longer pink sad.gif It would have fit perfectly with my pink and orange wedding.

In regards to the new paint job, Kelley said the old pink just wasn't "manly" enough - lol. And since that is the place where the guys get ready they thought they'd make it a little more gender appropriate... wink.gif

i have to admit - i miss the pink! i'm sure it wouldn't take anything away from my wedding - but some of my favorite pics are the ones with the guys by the pink wall. it was so festive, and added some unexpected color to the pics. (see below) oh well - Caletas is still fabulous!

    • 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.
