Another random question and I don't know if anyone will know this, but which restroom would our guests use if our reception is on the Terrace? Does it have high general public traffic? I am trying to decide it I am going to provide things in the bathroom like lotion, oil wipes, etc.
yes, there are bathrooms right by the pool. i didn't put anything in there b/c it's still public, plus i was traveling w/ enough!! i think there are 2 stalls (in the women's at least) and a sink.

I think we might end up staying somewhere else and maybe trying to set something up with Rebeca to just pop in and have a little tour. If not, I've seen enough pics and heard enough good things on this forum that I would still get married there without seeing it.

On a side note, have any of the legal requirements changed lately? Do you guys still have to be there 3 days before and get a blood test done? Do you still have to get your birth certs translated? And does Rebeca take care of all this for you? Let us know how it all went once you get back!

Thanks Lauren! Do you remember if there was a little table or shelf space if we were to put stuff out?

 

Not sure about the legal requirements AprilMay - we're doing the legal stuff before we go.

Hey, I am getting married April, 10, 2010. We will probably be there at the same time. I am considering the gazebo now too. What time is your ceremony? I wanted mine to be before sun set so pics can be taken after. Good luck with planning

AprilMay, that's a good question. Let me know if you find anything out about the legal requirements. If we are getting married on Saturday, is Wednesday too late to count as a day? Good luck with planning

AprilMay...I was going to do the legal ceremony at Dreams until I heard all the stories about legally getting married in MX! I heard that some people papers were lost and never filed...it was just a big mess! They had a thread about it on here! So what we are doing is just going to go to the court house when we get back to make it simple and know for sure we are legally married! Just a thought for you!

Also if you end up going let us know I really want to see more pics of the place! I have yet to see any pictures of the ballrooms!

Hey guys, so the story goesssssssss........... we're still doing recon to PV in Nov but are staying at Riu Vallarta :S I ended up finding a sweet-ass deal on funjet and got a free room upgrade as well so am alright with it......... I GUESS. We're going on the 15th for 10 days :) I'll take lots of pics... and then I'll have to figure out how to post them! 6 weeks!!!

 

I've emailed Rebeca and we'll be meeting with her one of the mornings to have a tour and get some info. I'll make sure to ask about the legal shat.

 

Welcome Christin!!! Have fun spending HOURS on this forum! (Make sure you read the whole Dreams thread, it's sooooo full of good info).

 

Bethany: Doing the court thing afterwards is definitely something to keep in mind - some people are sneaking and doing it before the dw but I just thought it would take the "specialness" out of it. But afterwards would be ok I think cause it's really just signing & paperwork....

i think there might be enough room for a narrow basket. if i remember correctly, it was just a sink, rather than a vanity. you could always put a larger basket underneath. i don't remember if i mentioned, but that bathroom is still public, even if your reception is private.

we did legal stuff before we went. didn't take the special anything out of it.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
