Welcome/Rehearsal Dinner

Recommended Posts

I was hoping to get a little insight --- my fiance an I are going to host our rehearsal dinner and were looking for ideas. Initially, we had thought to stay within the Hilton as that is where our wedding is... but I don't want to miss out on a gem.

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I highly recommend La Panga Antigua, which is a restaurant in San Jose del Cabo (maybe a 20 min drive?). It was so yummy, so gorgeous, and even though ours was 2.5 years ago I still hear great things about it.

There are so many great restaurants in Cabo and San Jose! I think there's a thread about it here. But to add a few more, Sunset de Mona Lisa is just a few miles from downtown Cabo. It has great Italian food and you can't beat the view! It's right on the water and it's absolutely gorgeous. Also Mi Casa (they have a few other restaurants they own in Cabo as well and are just as good!). Puerto Vieja is another one and it's right down the road from Sunset de ML. It too has great views and many other ladies on here have had their rehearsal dinners/wedding receptions there. Check out the thread and I think you'll find some great recommendations. Good luck and let us know what you decide!

Congrats!

We are having our Welcome Dinner at Mi Casa which is a sister restaurant to La Panga in San Jose. Mi Casa is in downtown Cabo San Lucas and in my opinion has the most authentic mexican food in Cabo! The decor and ambiance are amazing, and they have trios and mariachis playing through out the restaurant. Good Luck.

Hi! I just got back from Cabo and was searching for a place for our rehearsal dinner too. Since we are inviting all of our guests not just the bridal party we wanted a place that had a great ambiance as well as easy on our pocketbook. Since my family is Italian we decided to go with the italian restaurant on the Marina - Amarone. The looks of the restaurant is gorgeous and with the setting on the marina it is beautiful. The prices are also very reasonable. - $12-16 for most pasta dishes. We are offering an antipasto for the appetizer and a choice of pasta (we are choosing about 5 options). Also, you can bring your own wine with a corkage fee of $200.00pesos which seems worth it if you can got to Costco and get a decent bottle of wine for $10-12 dollars will put each bottle of wine at ~$30-$35 instead of their cheapest bottle of $45.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
