      I think they just section off a part of the bar for you for the "cocktail party". I want to do this, but I just have to talk my dad into the extra $500 for appetizers.

            I'm so torn. I remember reading that Jamie was going to have a cocktail hour with drinks and was thinking of having her BM's run to the different snack bars and bringing food over. I like that idea because I hate that we have to pay additional for food at an all inclusive place! Plus I think I want a mariachi band, in which case would be expensive (especially for 2 hours). However, I don't want it to look cheap or unorganized, so I think I'd do the 12 or 14 dollar package if I chose to go with appetizers.

            Do you think you'll be a part of the cocktail hour, or no? Since my ceremony is at 3 I am wondering what to do after the pics are done. It would probably be weird to be at the cocktail hour though....and then do you get "introduced" at the reception like a traditional wedding?

            I cant remember if I've asked this before but are you girls planning to get "introduced" and come running in our whatever?

              Yeah, I am with you on the all inclusive paying for extra food thing, but I will probably just pay it if I decide to even do it.

              I don't think that we are being introduced. We are having the semi-private reception dinner.

                you're doing semi-private and still have to wait until 2nd seating....that is unfair! maybe they will make it private and no additional cost :) I saw that happened to 1 girl on here!

                  I don't mind paying for the food, people are spending lots of $$ to come down to celebrate our wedding with us so I want to make them feel special. We will still save $$ by having our DW instead of an at home wedding.

                  So you ladies are not attending your cocktail parties? It had never occured to me that it might be strange for my FH and I to go but now it does.
                  We are having a private reception but maybe the introduction of us as a newly married couple could be done at the cocktail party, would that be weird? We are still having speeches and everything at the dinner though.

                  Just out of curiosity, how many guests is everyone expecting?

                    We'll have probably somewhere between 35-50 guests. I'm estimating in the 40's at this point. I have NO idea whether to come to the cocktail party or not? I know at traditional weddings you don't, but what does that mean for DW? I like the idea of being announced for the cocktail hour, because I don't know what I'll do at an AI resort for the 4 hours in-between. I'd have to avoid everyone!!! LOL
