      I am having a hard time getting a straight answer to this. If you are having or had a private dinner reception can you choose more than one food option from their list? Or does everyone have to eat the same meal? Can I pick two appetizers, two soups, etc?

        You can choose one salad, one soup or pasta, and 2 main entrees. At least that is what I had the options for at El Cocotal's free dinner.

          Our private dinner was the same. You'll just need to get your counts beforehand. on our RSVP we asked who wanted what dish (pork or salmon) and paid for 13 pork and 17 salmon. Also used this on the place cards to let wait staff know who got what.

            Sorry been out of the loop. Probably going to need ot post lots tonight! What an exciting Friday, huh

            Anyway, we got the small 6 person cake. Remember, we also had all of the desserts of the breakfast buffet to go around.

              Quick question that I must have missed somewhere:
              Do you have to do the free dinner at El Cocotal, or will they let you do it somewhere else and set up all the tables together?

                I probably have the Word documents for the inside of it if anyone really needs it. You can PM me.

                  We didn't get chairs for the photog and asst at the wedding, because they were up the whole time. It turned out that some of our guests preferred to stand anyway, so there were plenty of chairs.

                  Your photog shouldn't be sitting during the wedding anyway, at least not if they kick ass like ours did! I don't think that Elizabeth sat all day!!!

                  We did get chairs for the reception, but again, we wouldn't have needed them.

                    No need for chairs during the cocktail party. People will be up and moving around for the most part. Also, depending on where you have it, there may be chairs...
