It's not like not all of the guests can drink if the bar is open during cocktail hour (even if you don't pay for the extras), right? I was under the impression that its just an open bar
Sorry for the delayed response...here's all the things I got charged extra for the reception:
Dinner for guests over the 25 included: about $67 per person
Extra champagne for over 25: about $5 pp
Extra wedding cake for over 25: about $6.25 pp
Hor douvres for cocktail hour over 25: about $19 pp
Extra centerpieces: divine cost $95 each
DJ: $390 each extra hour
Even though my reception is 4 hours, there was nothing on my quote that charged extra for cocktails. There was a line item for it, but Pilar had it marked as $0.
I'm also getting just a single flower for each of my bridesmaids and extra photography. All the prices include tax and a service charge. Since the prices are a little crazy I think we're going to skip the champagne toast and the extra cake (bc theres dessert included in the divine package) and then just take the hor douvres (sorry if my spelling is wrong) that are included in the package and not pay extra for over the 25 people. Also, I have been debating over what to do about the centerpieces because they seem really expensive to me. So I may just take the 2 or 3 that are included and bring down tealight candles and flower petals for the other tables.
Hope this helps!
Since it's standard prices, I'm happy to actually send you the quote she gave me, if you want.
