I'd like to do a cocktail hour before dinner, but it seems like everything they have on their Banquet Kit is minimum 2-hours. There the International Open Bar to extend the bar after the 4-hour Private Dinner, but I wonder if I could do this beforehand.
They charge you by the type and number of canapes so I don't think that the time really matters. I am doing my cocktail recpetion before the recpetion and only hosting for 1 hour and then doing the reception. All in all, I think that they party part will run 4-5 hours.
I liked the Italian dinner, but I thought to myself "We're going to be in Mexico. What's the point in going to Mexico to have Italian food?" Plus my FI's family is 100% Italian, so they are hard to please Italian food-wise since they make it so well themselves! I really like the Petit Gourmet or BBQ Deluxe, since that is supposed to be great option if you're having your event on the beach (as I think I will) and it has so many choices. I might also just choose from one of the set Group Menus.
That makes sense. The Deluxe BBQ sounds great just sooo expensive. Yeah and I am Italian too but at least I know that my picky Italian family will be comfortable with the food choices
**After your weddings, can you come back and tell me what your cakes were like? What flavors did you get to chose from, which style did you chose, how did it look & taste, did you think a cake was necessary?
I didn't think a cake was necessary either but my mom insists. So cake it is.
Also, where do they have the bar? Did you have dancing, if so, where did you have it & how was it set up and how did it go?
