    I have officially decided on having a cocktail reception for our wedding! I have gone back and forth with this for months on end and have finally figured it out! We are going to be having a traditional sit down "welcome dinner" this being said I didn't want two sit down dinners in a row!

     

    Now that I have made my decision I would love to talk to others who are also going this route (cocktail reception) Toss ideas back and forth, decoration ideas...  etc!

      We are having a cocktail reception too!  I've found that I don't like being anchored down to my seat for 2 hours during receptions.  We have all young people coming to our wedding and I would like to be able to socialize with all of them as I'm sure they would like to socialize with everyone too, instead of being restricted to those at their table!  We're getting Married at a restaurant in Cabo, off the resort.  We rented out the upstairs of the restaurant which is already set up like a lounge, they offered to clear our the couches and high tables to put in large round tables for the dinner, but after some though, we decided we liked the way it looked and decided against the formal sit down dinner.  For our meal we're having gourmet pizza stations and a pasta bar.  Guest can help themselves to their dinner and sit where every they'd like to eat it.  The first hour there will be passed appetizers and than an hour later the pizza and pasta bar will be set up.  We're having an open bar, and we're setting the patio up as a hooka lounge!

          Steal away!  That's what we're here for!  I'm sure what ever you decide to do will be amazing, and you guests will have a great time!
