    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...

      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!
