    It's not tacky at all! Our reception will be at the resort (which is AI), but we still have to pay a price per person. I really don't think the guests will even notice if you have to pay for the reception or not. They're there to support you on your big day and they'll be too busy having a good time to worry about the reception being held at an AI.

They even give you a waiter to take care of your party, and do some simple decorations for your area. Only catch is that they only allow for it if you have 25 guests or less. If your party is larger than that, you have to book for a private reception.

      Anyway, I don't think its in poor taste at all. Especially if you are having an AHR. But either way, I think its fine. They are already in this idyllic setting having the time of their lives..no reason to go to all that extra expense as far as I'm concerned.
      Is 25 the magic number? I couldn't remember if it was 25 or 20. We are a group of 26. Hopefully that 1 person doesn't put us over the top for the restaurant :)

      I've heard they will allow more if you ask when you get there. I feel the same way about the buffet. I don't mind doing it, I just don't want to be walking around in my dress.

        I don't think it's in poor taste. Why pay for food that has already been paid for?

          We had the choice of having a really awesome paid reception or paying for people's flights/rooms to our wedding - I'm pretty sure they appreciate us paying for all or part of their trip more!
