cocktail party...bad or good?

I think you probably just need to think about your guests and what they'd like. If you feel that some of them may be offended, it might not be the right route to go.

I don't think there is anything wrong with it. It's not like you aren't feeding the guests. It's just not a major sit down dinner.
I know some people will say, "Guests are spending a lot to be there so the least you could do is feed them" But I think, these days people understand that finances are tough for everyone. As long as you take care of the guests in other ways, I don't think a cocktail reception is a problem.

Go with the cocktail party, I think the guest will appreciate having the disco private for the wedding party. They are coming to see you get married not to eat. plus, they can eat before or after the cocktail party it is an AI. Good Luck with your planning!!

To be totally honest, I think that I'd be a little put off if I traveled all the way to X Location (I'm not sure where you are getting married) and the bride and groom didn't provide an actual dinner the night of their wedding. I'm not saying it has to be sit down, white glove service ~ and believe me I TOTALLY get the trying to save $$ part, but if you're going to do a "cocktail party" you'll need to have tons of food to fill people up. My fiance and I are also doing the destination wedding because it is going to be so much more affordable than getting married at home, but I think that it is important to keep in mind how much your guests are spending so that you can save money on your wedding. I didn't see, but is your resort an AI? If it is that does change things a bit.
