Thanks so much for the quick response. Takes a lot of the pressure off trying to decide on what to do. I am starting to get even more excited. Come on July!!
1hr hors d'ouevres reception question

Wow, Tenny & Chris... you guys are making me seriously reconsider the sit down dinner on the day of the wedding! I never looked at the fact that we would have 2 sitdown dinners back to back. Hmmm, decisions decisions...
Chris can you give me the optios for the cocktail hour? Am I assuming that the cocktail portion can be seated Tenny, as you mentioned having 8 tables? How did your guests feel? Were they happy with cocktail and afterparty instead of a formal reception? I truly appreciate your feedback.

Diva, they give you a list to choose from, I know we had cocktail patties, shrimp, jerk chicken....I don't remember what else they had, there was a bar just for a us. I don't even think anyone knew that it wasn't a full reception except for John and I. It wasn't missed, people were dancing and mingling. It was a great time...I wouldn't have changed anything!

I was curious of the menu myself so I asked my TA! You will find below the options my TA said the resort offered. Hope this helps. My plan as of now is to extend the one hour cocktail hour to two hours an extra $12 per person and add a beef craving station. And since I have more than 10 rooms booked I will get the $15 dollar credit per guest to toward my reception. I also plan to do the dj for two hours. This will be half of what I would have to pay for a seat down meal!! I will bring table runners and a few thing to put on the table and call it day. Later that night all the young folks are going to meet up and party like there is no tomorrow. Lol! Thanks again Tenny for all the information!!Some example of hot - hors d' oeuvres are shrimp, chicken skewers, sausage, for cold hors d' oeuvres - salmon, brie cheese, crab meat, all bite size.

Thank you Ladies for the info. My FI are discussing this option now! With a Welcome dinner the night before, it does seem redundant to have another formal meal. Keeping you guys posted. Chrs, how is the planning going? Tenny, you looked stunning on your day! Did you mention Kompa..Vous Ãªtes Haitienne? :-))))))
