Paying for a group activity vs. hosting a welcome dinner???

Recommended Posts

We are hosting a rehearsal dinner for everyone at Puerta Vieja for $51 including tax and tip. We are organizing a scuba trip and fishing trip, but those are non-hosted. Our guests have no problem paying for the activities themselves. I honestly don't think (most reasonable) people expect you to pay for their entertainment just because they are coming to Cabo for your wedding. :)

We're planning an a day cruise the wednesday before our friday wedding. I wish we could afford to pay for our guests, but its way too much money and we have too many guests. The Mayan has a fire pit, maybe (depending on costs) we'll have a bonfire and cocktails the tuesday before as a welcome event.

 

Oh, by the way, adding to Maria's suggestions...

 

Loteria LoterÃ*a - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

is a Mexican Bingo type game in which you use cards instead of balls and characters instead of numbers and letters. I am planning on making game cards and using pictures of my guests and things related to PV. As an example, I have an uncle who is always falling asleep and we have great pics of him knocked out with random things in his hands, any ways, I'd place a pic of him and name him "El Dormilon" (the sleepyhead). I'm planning on playing this on the boat.

michelle, i remember that you were thinking of staying at dreams...if this is the case, then you can have a welcome dinner cheaper than most activities..

if not, what about something like cocktails and appetizers...an dinner cruise is gonna end up being $35 and up per person, then you throw in the cost of transportation to get to the marina...if cost is a big concern this is not the most cost efficient way.

I just had an idea for a group activity for us girls on a budget. Instead of a sunset cruise, what about inviting everyone to meetup on the beach about 30minutes before sunset?

 

I will be trying to work with the hotel provided entertainment as much as possible because I can not spend a lot of money on this wedding.

You're right tammy...we are staying at dreams....Yessica quoted me $30 per person for a welcome dinner and $85 for a day pass for those who don't stay there....which is definately going to be cheaper because it's for food and alcohol but I thought I would keep my options open....

I didn't know how much that boat cost and now I know and you're right, it's not the best choice for us! wink.gif
