What about something Fri Feb 12 or Mon Feb 15? What about a different weekend? The weather is great until May in PV. You have to specifically ask for certain dates from Rebeca because she won't automatically offer alternative dates. If people are traveling they are probably taking off work/school to go anyways so an extra day on either side of the weekend doesn't make that much of a diff...
IMO: If you decide to go with the Riu chain, go with their Palace resorts. I went with a big group of friends to Riu Santa Fe and it definitely wasn't as nice as the Riu Palace Cabo.
All in all, don't stress too much. You will find the best date and place in time. Just be patient and open minded. Good luck!

Some of our guests want to go home on Saturday so they have one day home to relax before going back to work, so for us, friday actually was better (just a thought...)
You might also have different reasons for wanting a sat though.

She said for the bonfire, mats, marshmellows, it would be $250, which I think is reasonable. My FI doesn't understand that and thinks it's still expensive considering where we live, we can go make a bonfire on the beach for basically free anytime we want.
Okay so Rebeca wrote me back about the rehearsal dinner deal. Apparently in 2010 it will cost $50 more to do the bonfire since she quoted me $300 for the bonfire (LAME) but I guess it is only $50 more. Then she sent me two attachments in regards to food (plated menu options and buffet options), but said when I had a final number of people she would give me an overall quote. So I don't know if that means the price would go up or down depending on the number of guests I have. But she did say that bar service is included. She just didn't say how long the rehearsal dinner would last and if they would maintain the bonfire or if we would have to throw extra wood on to keep it going.
Needless to say I don't know if my FI's parents will be down with the price, I hope they will though. I don't think it would be any cheaper to go into downtown PV.

Has anyone rcvd an updated nightly events list from Rebeca? I think Lauren posted info on her review, but I wasn't sure if it changes. On the website it lists all the activities such as, circus night, casino night etc,
but does anyone have an updated on? or should I just double check with Rebeca?
I'm going to print the list on the welcome booklet I'm making.

But, here is the breakdown for the welcome booklet I copied it from Mandy's Mom (I think that's who it was...?)
Front Cover - cardstock paper from Michaels - really pretty watercolored paper
Inside - includes welcome, itinerary, peso conversion, spanish phrases, wedding puzzle, restuarant guide for the resort w/dress code, and guest's name and relation to bride/groom (that's what I'm thinking so far...)
We are planning on having them small (about 1/4 of a paper) and then punching holes in the upper left corner and then tying rafia through to hold them together. Then people can flip through them almost like flashcards or something.
I might actually have a sample made up soon and then I can post that!
And I should have my welcome bags done soon too (my tags are done and oh so cute, but I'm waiting to post once I get the bag done too)
My mom is making the bag out of fabric from her quilt store. It didn't take much fabric at all and she is just sewing them up and then attaching a ribbon on the back to tie it closed. I'll def post as soon as I have it
