Cocktail hour or no?
Posted 12 October 2009 - 01:47 AM
I'm having both my ceremony (on the restaurant deck) and reception at a restaurant in Maui. We're also hosting appetizers prior to dinner. We are considering not having cocktail hour during the appetizer and serve only non alcoholic drinks. However, the event manager at the restaurant is saying that cocktail hour is typically a standard and we should have it, plus having cocktail hour would be an extra $1000 for the restaurant.
Our concern is that most of the guests on my side are not big drinkers and my FI is concerned that his friends will drink it up and up getting drunk.
We are however, serving wine during the dinner.
Is it tacky to not have a cocktails included with the appetizers? Thoughts? Thanks.

My wedding day is set up in a similar way, and it's not open bar during appetizers...at first I was a bit disappointed and thought it might look like we're being cheap or something...but since we're having a champagne toast right after the ceremony, and then open bar with dinner, I think it will be fine...
