    With some of our guests not eating red meat, some not liking chicken, etc. we thought it would be hard to only serve one main dish, so we decided to have the guests order what they want and paid $25pp. Also since Chilis only serves beer & wine, we paid $9pp to have an open bar.

      Gotcha! Maybe I misunderstood Ael. We plan on paying the extra $25 per person, and am hoping that everyone can just order off the menu. I sent her another email just to confirm.

      P.S.- Your pictures are beautiful! :)

        Katie- March 26th is coming right up! When are you heading to Mexico?? Also how many guests are you having; just wondering how far off you were from the under 27 number that they allow to have at the earlier dinner seating.

        We leave for Mexico next Saturday, the 20th! I can't wait! And we actually have around 75 guests...so I was definitely surprised when Ael told me our dinner was at 7pm!

                Yay Lisa, Kimmy and Sammysgirl!!! I'm excited for you all---- it sounds like everything is really coming together.

                I'm a little sad and frustrated about the dinner thing. I thought you ordered off of the menu no matter what? Does this depend on group size? We're not having the private reception- it will be a semi private dinner....I have another question- if you don't mind!! We'll prob have about 45 people. Does this mean that we will have to pay the full amount for the bigger package or do you know if they prorate it pp?

                As a lot of others have said on this thread- it is SO frustrating how much nickeling and diming goes on when it's supposed to be an AI. FI is TOTALLY against having the full bar because of this- and I'm afraid it will be tacky if we don't. He insists that our friends will be cool about it- but I'm not so sure....Sorry for the vent!

                  wow I had no idea about $25 per person charge. I knew about the $9 per persson open bar thingy.

                  I will also have btw 50 - 55 ppl and a lot are vegetarians and a lot aren't and some keeps halal/kosher so no pork products so I guess I will also have to pay this $25 per person too!

                    This $25 charge is def new, b/c the past brides haven't mentioned it. I believe you only have to pay the $25 if you are having your Private reception at Chili's. If you have your private reception at Chili's I believe you can have a buffet and you don't have to pay more. So if you have less than 60 people you will be at Botogo and do not have to pay this.. that's my understanding anyway.

                      I am so glad that you got the 7:00 pm time! I hope that the same happens to me even though I am not thrilled about the $25 extra per person but oh well!
