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

Recommended Posts

Hi Vanessa:

 

Thank you for so much detail! It makes me want to go RIGHT NOW!

If you dont mind, I have two questions for you:

1. What about the Westin did you not like?

2. You said the sun went down very fast, about what time would say? I was told that in May the sun doesnt set unil about 8:30pm.

 

Cant wait to see the rest of your pics!

 

Best,

Natalie

HI wink.gif

 

 

* Westin. My Bachlorette Party was held there at 8:45 pm. When we got there, we went to the pool area. There was no one at the front desk. No people in the lobby. It was so quiet. We went to the pool area. Maybe 6 people there. When we left we saw a couple w/ their 2 kids. That was it. It was dark and gloomy feeling. The drinks were expensive and the overall impression for me was not the happy uplifting Mexico I know and love. One of the couples who came to the wedding did stay at the hotel which is why we were there, she gave me the Pre-Party there. They wanted quiet and great rooms. They enjoyed their 2nd type honeymoon there. They read and laid out by the pool. What we were looking for was movement in the hotel we choose, lots going on for the guests who had traveling so far. We stayed at the Riu Jalisco and although there were things I would have loved to change about some issues there, for the most part it had all we looked for. We were there in Jan which is one of the busiest times in Mexico due to their NYears celebrations. All the areas we moved around in were full of things going on around you. At the Westin that wasnt the case. In a get away where you want to have alone time I might consider it as its one of the largest most elegant hotel chains but for what we needed and wanted I was really glad we choose another. So my comment: Quiet, Expensive, Nothing to Brag About

** 2 stars on my scale of 5

 

Please know another bride might have a different opinion but that was view on the Westin. And to be fair to the Westin. I do stay at their locations in the U.S when I travel. Sorry so long in reply. Our photographer was Jason Pardo he does not have a website. He's out of Dallas. Congratulations to all of you coming down the sandy aisle of Las Caletas :)

Vanessa, I just got done looking at your wedding pictures - absolutely beautiful bride, wedding - everything! Thank you so much for sharing. Every picture I can see of LC gets me more excited for my wedding in October. Can never have enough pics of LC!

 

We were in PV in April and had our site visit and couldn't be happier with our choice of location for our wedding. We stayed right down the road from the Westin at the Marriott - where we've stayed several times before when visiting and it's always been busy. As we've noted on this last trip, it's in need of updating but it's well maintained. The one afternoon we sat in the lobby (very breezy spot - perfect for people watching) and watched the floor being thoroughly waxed. Given we were waiting for our taxi to the airport and nothing else to do, but they maintain everything there. Fortunately they'll be doing a renovation starting any day now.

 

Again, thank you for the pics and Congratulations!

Thank you all for your sweet comments on the wedding. A question I was asked was about the bridesmaid dresses. Nordstrom's online. We loved them. They were breezy and all the women looks gorgeous in all sizes. They danced looked gorgeous and partied like rock stars wink.gif

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
