    Because Im on a budget, I dont think I can afford to have the welcome dinner, the rehearsal dinner, and the reception all because we have over 100 people. So if we told everyone to meet at a certain restaurant in Dreams and then maybe just had a bonfire and smores on the beach, do you think that's cheaping out?

      I think that's a nice compromise. Holy cow, 100+ people!!!! So in lieu of the welcome and rehearsal dinners you'd have bonfires and smores instead (but you'd still have the reception)? That sounds really nice. What kind of reception were you thinking? Cocktail, full sit down meal etc.

        I honestly don't think it's cheap, you have a very large party to consider. I say go for it!!

          I don't think that it sounds cheap- it actually sounds like a lot of fun!

              That sounds like a great idea. Your guests might like that better, because they can do whatever they want for dinner (considering its a vacation for them too) and then meet for a bonfire/smores. If you did a welcome dinner, rehearsal dinner, and reception 3 days in a row, they might not feel like they can just relax and enjoy the resort.

              Great idea!

                That sounds like fun... smores :) I am doing my welcome dinner at one of the restaurants at my resort. It is too expensive to do everything and that is why your guest are paying for an AI why keep paying extra?

                  I just re-read your post...I misinterpreted it to mean that you would still be having a reception dinner. But like I said its still a great idea! Have fun!

                    I might be confused too! Are you having the bonfire/smores in place of the welcome dinner or a reception? I re-read your post too, but now I am still not sure what I am talking about?

                      I personally wouldn't like a bunch of scheduled dinners when I'm on vacation. so I wouldn't worry about a welcome dinner & just do the bonfire.
