Rehearsal Dinner in Cabo San Lucas

Recommended Posts

Hi, can anyone share with me your plans for a rehearsal dinner in Cabo? We were originally thinking about a sunset cruise, but haven't completely decided. If you are doing a cruise, I would appreciate to know what company you are using and the associated costs.  Thank you!!

We originally wanted to do a sunset cruise for our rehearsal dinner as well, but it didn't work out since 2 of the groomsmen (one was my fiance's brother) were arriving the day before the wedding and it would have been cutting it close to get them to the rehearsal and on the boat in time.  It seemed like too much of a rush.  So now we are doing our dinner at Baja Brewery which is located on the rooftop of Cabo Villas where most everyone is staying.  There is also a location downtown.   We are doing a taco bar that cost $26/person, not including alcohol.  

 

The dinner cruise I was looking into was the Sun Rider... it would have been about $43/person for about 55 guests, which we thought was great price for food/drinks included.  

 

We will probably still do the dinner cruise the night before the rehearsal, for those that can make it but we are not paying for it.

I too had the timing issue with the cruise and we have 150 people coming so the cost was addingup.  We are doing $26 per person taco bar as well at Baja cantina, right below Baja brewery in front of cabo villas.  It is a great location and on the beach.  I ate at Baja cantina and Baja brewery and you can't go wrong.  both have great food.  To cut costs we are providing 2 hours of margarita pitchers and beers.

 I hope this helps.

We're doing the Cabo Mar Dinner Cruise for our rehearsal dinner. We booked in 2013 so we were able to get 2013 prices but the cost has gone up for 2014. I believe it's now $65/person. And although all wedding guests are welcome to join us, we're only paying for the wedding party and their spouses and my parents. Kind of works out since some people want time to do their own activities while in Cabo. The welcome dinner at the hotel will include everyone. I think we have a nice balance of things planned and people still having their free time.

We are doing ours at a "Romeo y Julieta" restaurant.  It's an Italian restaurant (we thought people might want a break from Mexican food) in downtown.  The restaurant is really cute and the food is really good! They have several packages to choose from.  We chose the cheapest package which included Caesar salad, lasagna, and dessert for $19/person.  We are also going to make sure someone orders a Mexican coffee.  The "show" when they make the drink is really neat! :)

We're also doing a CaboMar dinner cruise.

 

The price they quoted us depends on the number of guests that end up coming.

 

I believe it was $65/person if you have 50 guests or less, $60/person if you have 100 guests or less or $55/person if you have 150 guests or less.  Pricey, but comparable to a nice sit down meal at a restaurant, plus it includes dancing, drinks, food all while seeing some sights!

ooh wow this sounds great. Both locations fit all 150 people? BTW how many people did you invite? I am just wondering because I am trying to get an idea of how many people might actually show up. How long in advance did you give them save the dates?

We are doing our rehearsal/welcome dinner at Los Tres Gallos.  Since we are having our wedding at Flora Farms, we wanted a very authentic Mexican restaurant in Cabo and our coordinator recommended Los Tres Gallos.  They have great reviews online and the manager is very responsive. Their prices are very affordable as well.

I love this idea!  Both places sound amazing!  Thanks for the info!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
