We have a small guest list so we are having a welcome dinner (fish taco bar) at our villa on the resort for our guests to mingle. We are going to have 4-5 signature drinks at the bar for our guests to choose from. It will be very laid back and informal. So there will be no speeches . We are looking at spending no more than $2k that evening.
We plan on giving everyone a planner of what we plan on doing and invite everyone to attend, but on their own expense.
