We did this too.  We had originally planned to have a rehearsal dinner with just the wedding party... then add spouses and my parents.... then we just said what the heck, invite everyone!  So we showed up that night and they pulled together seating for about 25 people on the spot.  And the service was fantastic!

Thanks Oryx

Thats good to know. I would perfer to do my welcome dinner at one of the restaurants rather than buffet if I am not charged an additional fee. You would think you could use your dinner reservation for up to 60 any time you are there, not necessarily the wedding date only. Bummer. I guess we will just call ahead or show up. If anyone has any other suggestions or ideas, please post. :)

The rehearsal dinner was at the steakhouse restaurant, but we did in fact have our welcome dinner at the buffet.  Not all of our guests arrived on the first night, but we really wanted to unload some of our loot bags and see everyone and exchange room numbers, etc.  The buffet seemed like a good option because people were tired and just getting their bearings and it was easy to find.  There were 17 of us and it was not a problem to get seating for us.  Everyone was excited and mingling and the buffet provided a nice, casual atmosphere for us to chat and for people to get to know eachother. 

 

Our server at the buffet was Alfredo and he was awesome!  Someone mentioned that we were getting married and he pulled the band over to play for us and dance and sing... it was great!   There was this short little waiter guy shakin' what his mama gave him... it was a riot.
