My daughter is getting married at Azul Beach in May and we are trying to decide between a Welcome Dinner on the beach or a Welcome Cocktail Party, also on the beach. The Welcome Dinner includes 4 hours open bar while the Welcome Cocktail includes 2 hours open bar. There are also 7 people staying off the resort that would be able to come for the 4 hour dinner but not the 2 hour cocktail. Which have you had and why did you choose it? Thanks!
Welcome Dinner on Beach or Welcome Cocktail?

How many days before the wedding would the event be held? If you're also having a rehearsal dinner in addition to welcome drinks, then I think drinks alone would be fine. If this event is meant to take the place of a rehearsal dinner, then I would recommend the fuller welcome dinner.
If you go w/ a cocktail party, I would still recommend serving food (if only light appetizers). It will be eaten, guaranteed! I would also plan to have the event carry over at the hotel bar - it's likely many guests will want to continue the party even if the drinks aren't free. You will only be able to enjoy your guests for a limited time, so make the most of it!
