I'll let you know how we go.

If you do supply your own booze, be sure the bartender is stocked with only one bottle of each at a time- keep the rest in a back-stock area. Our bartender (or someone) cracked open about 4 large bottles of rum that never got used, so we couldn't even return them to Costco, and we didn't have enough time to drink them :
Like I said, we did a brunch reception, 30 ppl, and including the cake, full service, and a waffle and omelet station it was around $4k. The food was something like $40pp, and soooo good. Contemporary Flavors did an awesome, awesome job... and their cakes are way better than Icing on the Cake, too

Thanks for the heads up about the alcohol. We figured Costco would be easier since we're there for a whole week and have to go there anyway to get food. I'll have to chat to my fiance and wedding coordinator about that one.

Niedertobe, keep in mind that if you go off-site to do your wedding, like to a public beach or park, it doesn't cost much (just a permit fee), but you also don't get to have much of a set-up. Also you will need a wedding coordinator for some private sites, and also to help you w/ everything from flowers to the officiant. The one thing I may have done instead of hiring a caterer was to have the reception at a restaurant. I don't know how the prices would compare, but there are other ways to get your food budget down. Consider having the wedding and reception earlier in the day, or on a monday - thursday. And talk to the wc at the st. regis about all your options. I didn't know they let you reserve a date without putting down the deposit?
