    I just booked River Cafe!!

    We decided to do a Rehersal/Welcome Lunch. I know its different for the normal. But I really don't want to take up to much from my guest vacation. We are doing our rehersal on Nov 26th (thanksgiving) at 11am which only the wedding party will attend (I want to keep the wedding location a surprise to everyone else.) All my other guest will come to the resturant we will probably do the lunch at 1pm. Then that leaves the rest of the day for my guest to do whatever they want.

    I looked into other resturants and emailed many and not many replied. Or were way over my budget and would not go any lower. Michael Boufford from River Cafe was one of the first to reply. He sent me their menu and price. The price was a lot more than I budgeted for. I told him my budget per person and he created a great menu to suit my needs. I have read my reviews on River Cafe from here as well as Trip Advisor and everything was good. My WC from Vallarta Wedd Planners had also eaten there and says the food is great and she commented that he gave me a great deal.

    Our choice of food will be
    Traditional Tortilla Soup or The River Cafe Salad
    and a choice of: Chicken Enchiladas, Beef Burrito or a Vegetarian Sandwich.

    The sandwich was a last minute addition. I wanted one of the choices to not be a Mexican dish.

    I am so excited to check this off the list!!

    Let me know if you have any questions or want contact info

      Hi Mary,
      Can I ask approx price per person?
      Sounds like a great idea! I was thinking the same thing, I didn't want to take up too much of my guests vacation. I was going to put on our website a brunch the morning after the wedding, but decided not to because of this reason....
      I'm still deciding what to do with rehearsal dinner. I'm going to have everyone just meet at one of the bars at Dreams for a welcome cocktail hour, but I keep going back and forth with the rehearsal.....

        Hi Jill
        The original menu was priced between $35-45. Way over what I am budgeted for. He asked what my budget was I told him $10 per person (really not much to work with) He said he would create something for me. Later that day get gave me the menu and the price of $16 per person which includes tax and service. Only thing drinks not included. So I thought $16 was do able.
        Let me know if you have any other questions

          I checked out River Cafe when in PV last month. It's location is really cool- on an island in the river. We didn't eat there but it looked great! Congratulations! I think a welcome lunch sounds like a great idea and from there the guests can walk to the Malecon to enjoy the rest of their day!

                    Hi guys- The planning is coming along slowly but surely. This forum really helps a lot!! Thank you to everyone who posts here! I chose the area because I have lots of family there too- so that is handy! =)

                    I have to be honest though, the ticker you both have counting down to the day gives me total anxiety! =) I can't believe it's coming so soon! Ahhhhh! =)
