      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.
          We're married! Jamie

            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

                Hey Christen,

                I am getting married April 17th...not sure if you will still be there! I am so excited! However I havent had many people book...everyone is scared about swine flu and thinks it is expensive! Dreams is so reasonable...I dont get it! But its ok...the only person I need there is my hubby to be :)

                I am also doing the gazebo! It is so pretty! Still on the fence about the reception!

                  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.
