Guacamole made to order in front of guests
Appatizers were mussels, calamarie and scallops
Seafood platter on these really cool aluminum boats with fire that had lobster
tails, shrimp, and tuna steaks.
Mexican platters included tamales, enchiladas and pork, chicken, beef.
Trio of desserts: fried icecream, chocolate and cheesecake.
THE ENTERTAINMENT WAS FABULOUS TOO. Very cool location, great service and scenery.
I have an email address for whoever is interested. Just give me a couple of days.

The Welcome Reception and Rehearsal Dinner can be combined. I went to a wedding recently that did this. The only thing is the following to consider:
a. Rehearsal dinners - usually mean sit down meals and such, so if you have a large wedding and you combine the two you are paying for everyone that is attending the wedding to come to the rehearsal dinner. Can get expensive.
b. Welcome Reception is usually hosted on the night majority of your guests arrive, so they can meet and spend the next few days getting to know each other before the wedding. Most welcome receptions are between 2-3 hours long. You can provide drinks and appetizers. Usually this is very inexpensive.
c. If your family and your Fiance's family don't live near each other, having a rehearsal dinner at DW for just the wedding party is a nice way to have just your family and wedding party together. While allowing your other guests a free night to do as they please.
So I think what ever works best for you is the way to go.
My friend who did the rehearsal dinner/welcome reception combo paid just as much for the dinner as she did her wedding reception. Ouch...
We are having a welcome reception the night everyone arrives and providing 2 hours of open bar and passed apps 60 plus guests.
Then we are having a rehearsal brunch with our families and wedding party 33 people, to keep it intimate.
PS I have been pricing rehearsal dinners for my 33 people and they are running anywhere between $800-$1400 w/o drinks.
