    Hello Ladies....

    Well, I have less than 3 months til the big day and there is still so much to do!
    I was wondering if anyone knew of a restaurant in Cabo San Lucas that is reasonably priced and easy to work with for our welcome dinner. We are exprecting about 50 people and most of us are staying at the Sheraton Hacienda. So far, Maye told me about Mi Casa and waiting to hear back about prices. Any suggestions and prices would be greatly appreciated!

    You girls are AWESOME!

      I'm not much help with the budget part, but Mi Casa would be an awsome restaurant to have a welcome dinner. The place is huge and I'm pretty sure they have a private room for parties. Also I'm planning mine at the office, which is also another beautiful spot! Good Luck

        Hi Adriana, I'm getting married at the Sheraton a few weeks after you!! I haven't planned my welcome dinner yet. Since I'm also on a budget I am thinking maybe instead of dinner just having a cocktail hour and Hors d'oeuvres...i think it gives everyone more of a chance to mingle, rather than having a sit down dinner....

            The food at Mi Casa is pretty good. If you haven't been there, it's got a very authentic hole-in-the-wall feel (rather than some of the other restaurants that have nicer garden patios). But it's fun and the food and drinks are good. I looked into a rehearsal dinner there. While a normal dinner there is not expensive at all, the banquet menu they offer is not as cheap. With the cheapest menu they offer for a rehearsal dinner, it's still about $100 per person after the tax/gratuity. Depending on the size of your group, they appear to require that you do an open bar to justify you taking up the space in their small restaurant (that's what the manager there told me).

                No, I haven't even started planning that yet since my wedding is still a year away, I just know that I want it there cause it is my favorite restaurant in Cabo!!! Not to mention that it's on the sand and has a beautiful view of Lands End.

                  We had our welcome dinner at Mi Casa. It was around $50 a head for food. We did drinks by consumption which cut our costs. It was an awesome place. Everyone had SO much fun. I'll try to find some pics.

                      Mi Casa is definitely a fun place. But for whatever reason, they said I needed to do a mandatory open bar. It may be because of the size of my group (100+), which they said would require them to close off a large section of their restaurant (although on the Saturday night we were there, that area was not being used anyway).
