I understand what you are saying, but I am holding my cocktail hour on the lobby terrace right outside of the lobby bar. This way people can just go and get their own drinks if they want to at no extra cost to us. If some want to stay with us while we take pictures at the ceremony area they can, but then we plan to migrate around the resort for unique candid shots and at that point they can go up to the lobby terrace. We will have pre-recorded jazz music playing and they can relax or go and freshen up and either way we are ok because we would not have spent a penny : )!

My fear with having a cocktail party is that most of my guest will stay with us at the beach to take pictures and miss the cocktail hour or some may want to freshen up a bit before dinner. I mean is cocktail hour really necessarily if it's an all-inclusive and everyone can just hang out at the bar for a few drinks? I guess I want to be a part of all of the fun lol...
