So does the reception time include the cocktail hour? Im getting married at Breathless resorts and we are allotted 3 hours for reception without incurring extra cost. I am also undecided on DJ or Ipod for music what are the pros and cons of both. Thanks in advance!
My reception does not include the cocktail hour.
I chose a cocktail hour for my guests while we are having pictures taken as our location is remote on the resort and people can't walk to find a drink. Then we will have our reception when the photos are done - dinner, open bar, speeches, cake, dancing, etc. I did extend it because it also only included 3 hours and I wanted a bit more time. So about 530-1100pm total.
I decided to pay for the resort DJ. He is $59 per hour, but the sound system is $42 -- IPOD or not you need a sound system if you plan to have speeches with a microphone so I figured it was worth the extra $17 per hour.
We are having an MC from our guests, if you want the DJ at our resort to do it that costs more money. I like a friend being the MC anyways.
