Hey everyone! I have a question....
Is anyone doing a rehearsal dinner or welcome reception of sorts, presumably the night before the wedding? We want to do a rehearsal, but will not be necessarily doing it at our wedding location as you have to pay $300 just to reserve the location for a rehearsal since they cannot have a wedding there during the time you are rehearsing. We are just going to wing it and rehearse in the "right spot" if we can and if not, we will just do it elsewhere on the beach.
That being said, we'd still like to host at least some sort of welcome dinner for all of our guests... we have too many people to do a semi-private dinner, which would be ideal, and do not want to spend the full amount to have a private dinner which would basically cost the equivalent of another wedding reception. So, all we have so far is a "welcome cocktail hour", which will be $15 per person to have open bar and appetizers.
There is also the possibility to go offsite and do a dinner in Playa del Carmen.
What is everyone else doing?
