    Thanks Sarah, I just did the same. I never thought of doing it in the welcome letter. That's a great idea though b/c in the event the WC doesn't respond to me any time soon I can just send out the invites without the info on the welcome dinner and leave that for when we're down there. Are you doing anything special at the welcome dinner - like anything beyond making the reservation? I have absolutely no idea what, I'm just wondering if I should be doing anything other than planning a meal together. I'm still up in the air on OOT bags (the costs keep going up) but if I do then the welcome dinner would probably be a good time to give them to everyone. I was thinking of doing it the night of our first whole day at the resort - what about you?

      Alright yet ANOTHER question (I never seem to run out) does anyone know anything about the dress codes in the Riu's restaurants? Online I've only found long pants for men, but I know other resorts require closed toe shoes for example

      Alright, after this I'll try to cut back on the questions

        Hey Shelly, most of the restaurants at Riu Los Cabos require long pants, no t-shirts and no sandles. As for the welcome dinner, no I am not really doing anything beyond making the reservation. I figure good food, drinks and compant is enough. I really dont want to spend any $ on this!
        Hope this helps!

          Thanks Sarah, it does help - Both with the dress code and reassuring me i don't have to do anything beyond this!

            I just got an email back from my the WC and she said she would reserve seats for us on the date and time I requested. I just want to clarify that there is no charge for this!

              lol I hope not b/c I got confirmation yesterday for my welcome dinner. They were actually really quick in responding! I contacted the WC via e-mail, within a couple hours she gave me the person's e-mail i needed to make the reservation at the resort (since I guess it's not really a wedding thing). I got confirmation from that person later in the day yesterday. Great improvement in response time!

              I assume if there was a fee they would have let us know then right? Let's assume no extras!

                      I cannot wait to see them! You must be so psyched. I'm already having difficulty concentrating at work and I have 3 months, not 3 weeks like you, to go! How many guests are joining you guys?
