We are in the final stages of planning and I will tell you that Ana had no problem letting us forego the cocktail hour and applying the credit ($26/per * 20 people) towards our dinner. We will have people meet at the beach bar and drink from there while we take pictures. While we couldn't get credit for the Mexican trio that is part of the package, so they will just set up by the bar and play there.

We're on tight budget and would really like to get rid of cocktail hour for extra dinners (which is what I just emailed about) so we'll see what she says. I've heard of a bunch of brides doing this but recently I know someone on here said her coordinator told her no.
Does anyone know if you can do that? Trade in cocktail hour (have everyone meet at a bar instead) and have 30 dinners instead of 20? An extra 10 dinners instead of cocktail hour is mostly what I've seen on this forum...
Sharon, where did you order your dress from? I haven't gone dress shopping yet but I've been looking online alot. I know its risky but some of the dresses or so much cheaper! That stinks about your dress- I take it there are no refunds? I'm sure you'll find something soon!
Ashlynn, thanks for posting that-I'll have to check out that website for our chair sashes.
