    Hi everyone. So I am still trying to plan something to do with my guests Wednesday night when they all arrive. As you know, throughout the wedding planning process everything seems to be a couple hundred dollars....and soon my budget is thrown out the window. What group welcome activities is everyone planning? And not to be tacky (but I am) ..how much did it approximately cost? I want to plan something fun (and most likely revolving around drinking..haha). Any ideas?

      I just had "optional" meet-ups at different bars in the resort on the nights leading up to the wedding. That way, there was no additional charge, no pressure to attend, and it gave everyone a chance to mingle and meet.

      Our rehearsal dinner was just a big reservation at a restaurant (our WC set it up ahead of time) with a pre-set menu and it didn't cost extra either.

      There are plenty of options out there that won't cost you anything additional, luckily!!! :-)

          we are meeting at the lobby bar at 8 and then going into town for ever wants to go. On the day before the wedding we chartered a boat for a snorkel/dive trip it was $25 for snorkeling and $95 for the divers. Includes snacks and drinks. From 12-4.

              We wanted to give ppl as much flexibility to do their own thing too! We are having a welcome dinner the night that everyone arrives (90% come in on Sunday) - the boys are organizing a golf afternoon for anyone who's interested and the girls will be doing a night out/stagette - other than that everyone is on their own - I am sure we will all meet up for dinners, drink etc.

                      We are sending a little information page out with out OOT bags that includes what we have organized. We didn't want anyone to feel obligated to attend anything either so we kept it pretty casual. The night we get there we suggested anyone who wanted to participate in a meet and greet to meet in the lobby bar at 7:00pm. The only other things we planned was a Jungle Booze Cruise that we paid for that includes snacks and drinks for everyone and then we planned a night out in downtown as a stag / stagette type of thing.
                      I attached our bag stuffer sheet for you to see.
