I agree that is crazy! What package are you getting? I think in the packages with the dinner options include three hours of bar..for extra it's $15/person/hour..which does seem crazy..yes. We will be having around 50 as well and are exchanging the cocktail hour for extra dinners...the cocktail hour seems to be too much. I've heard some brides they don't even make it to theirs because of pictures..and why pay for it when there are I think three bars right in that area where your guests could get a drink. It also gives people time to take their pictures of you or themselves..or maybe run to their rooms..etc.
How many hours have past brides done for their reception?? We were thinking four then head over to Desires...??
Maybe some past brides can give us some insight?? I'm guessing we will have waiters assigned to our parties asking what drinks guests want..I'm sure it will be fine!!
