Help with planning a cocktail party
Posted 08 October 2007 - 12:55 AM
Im really trying to watch the budget, so Im wondering what the best option is for the cocktail party. Our hotel? Will they be cool with 50-60 people just hanging out there?(Not everyone will be staying there) or just pick a bar? Should I reserve a place? Is it expected that we provide drinks or do guests buy as they drink? aagghh!! Any advice?

Check around though and you may find a good deal. I think if you will be inviting people to a cocktail party where you'll be handing out the OOT bags that you should pay for drinks and/or munchies. You can keep it simple & cut costs though by limiting the type or amounts of alcohol you include - like maybe only serve margaritas and beer as opposed to a full open bar.

You could also do it very informally, and have all guests meet out at a bar after the RD?? No formal invite, maybe just word of mouth? That way, it would seem acceptable for everyone to buy their own drinks.
Let us know what you decide!

I don't know how much they would charge if they did, but I've learned here that for weddings some people pay a lot per outside guest at other resorts. It's a fee to enter the grounds and use the facilities basically, in addition to what you pay for the event. Definitely ask in advance )
