    Christa - That a good idea about maybe adding a line to the RSVP card too. I was even thinking about having some of the free business cards from VistaPrint printed to match the invitation (which I haven't chose yet). and just say to go to our website to RSVP for the events and see details of the RD.

    I think that could work... this is where I could also put in a space to write in everyone's RSVP code...

    I should email Maye now that I've made a decision to line up BC!

    Has anyone eaten there before?

      Yes, check the Baja Cantina thread, someone just posted about having eaten there recently(can't remember who?).

        I really like the idea of the business card as an insert. That way you don't clutter the actual invite with too much info. Also, you should still try our P Vieja for a dinner treat while you are in Cabo and ask for the private balcony. they will treat you like a king and queen! There are vouchers available at loscabosguide

        you do not play for money BUT if you planned ahead, you could have prizes for people. we played blackjack, poker, and roulette...it was fun...not super fancy but it helped everyone get to know each other

              I love when I find a thread I am looking for. I thought I would give this a bump as this is the big question I am facing this week.

              I just got my invites....we are sending out 85 invites to the wedding. We know about only 45 of those 85 families/couples/singles will be showing up to the wedding in cabo. The invites direct guests to rsvp online so there is no seperate rsvp card included.

              I am debtating if I need to 1) send out seperate invitations to the welcome dinner to the definates and maybes, 2) if I can include the invitations in the welcome bag to deliver to guests when they arrive, OR 3) if I should add an insert into the invitation.

              Even after reading this thread I just can't decide...anyone else have some ideas?

                I'm doing departure gift bag instead of OOT bags. In the gift bag i'm going to put a Welcome Packet that has tips, facts about my location, etc. I'm also going to include an iternary which i'll put the Welcome Dinner on there and Wedding Day itinerary.

                Maybe you could send out a newsletter about a month before the wedding and just include the welcome dinner info there.

                  A departure bag? Sounds like a good idea... are you going to be giving it to guests before they leave?

                    Yes we are going to hand them out before we leave. I'm hoping to be able to get everyone's travel itinerary and tickets from my TA and hand them out with the gift bags. They are basically OOT bags but just handing them out so we don't have to carry anymore stuff down to DR with us.
