Haven't decided yet about the cocktail hour -- I was debating b/c technically since MP is all inclusive everyone in the party should be able to drink for "free" anyways at any MP bar....what are your opinions on just heading to one of the bars at the resort after the ceremony instead of paying for a cocktail hour?
We are planning a full reception when we get back home (for about 150-175 family/friends) so we're trying to cut our costs at MP since most people won't be there.
Any help would be great!
We are probably only having about 35 guests as well. But you only need to have 15 room nights booked through a group/wedding contract to qualify for a free private cocktail hour so just with our room and my parents room we already qualify. I don't think it would be any problem and might actually be fun for your whole group to just take over one of the many bar areas.
