Welcome Dinner on a budget!

Recommended Posts

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!cheer2.gif

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).

    • 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.
