      We haven't started to book yet, just have rooms and seats set aside. We have about 130 on our list but not sure how many will come, we figure half forsure maybe more. Personally, we aren't doing OOT bags because we wont be able to afford it with so many guests (hopefully) so we are doing just koozies as a wedding favor for everyone, easy to transport and not too expensive. I haven't started to think about meeting up yet...Im going to give a time line of the wedding day in our invites though so they know for that day. 


      We are going to Sandos Playacar Beach Resort and Spa.

        I had close to 160 people attend our wedding at CdM!!!  It was TIRING!!  I am completely lagging in compiling my list of insights/suggestions but by far the hardest thing was juggling time intensive tasks (like putting welcome bags together) when we had so many guests having fun at the hotel!  I really wish I had shipped more stuff in advance rather than spend that time running around to save $.

              We have 128 booked so far and are expecting 150ish at Cabo Azul in San Jose del Cabo. As far as meeting up goes, we are having a meet and greet on Thursday night (our wedding is on Saturday).  All of our guests are staying at the hotel, so I'm sure everyone will be together at the pool and bar during the day. 


              We are thinking of putting a six pack of Coronas tied with ribbon, custom koozies, and a welcome letter in each room instead of OOT bags.  Our favors probably will be a little pail filled with margarita jelly bellies and a drink umbrella (this will also be how people find their table) or

              We are not including everyone in the rehearsal dinner on Friday -- it's just too expensive.  We're just having family members and the wedding party attend (that's 60 people!).


              Thanks for creating this thread!  I was beginning to think that we were the only ones having a big DW!
