We are having 50-60 guests and don't plan to do the cocktail hour...we are using the same approach that you did. Did they swap 1 cocktail hour guest for 1 dinner? Or did they just give you a partial credit for not using the cocktail hour?

We didn't but ended up asking our DJ to move forward before it was served.
