Cocktail hour

Hi girls,


I think that we have decided to do our wedding at the unbelievable Mark Hopkins hotel in SF...


 


While going over the estimate with our (my and my FIs) parents, we noticed that we can save a significant chunk of money by getting rid of cocktail hour...however, my parents are vehemently against it. I would personally prefer to save money than to have a reason for people to stand and wait aimlessly for the reception to start...


 


What do you think?

I had that same debate with my FI. So we came up with something that won't cost us much money (just about $50 for some cocktail tables with a candle and linens). Since our ceremony will be held outside and we know that the ceremony won't be taking the full hour (more like 30-35 minutes), we are having the venue put some cocktail table in the back of the patio where guess can mingle for 20 minutes or so (to finish the hour designated for the ceremony), then walk right into the ballroom for the reception. We are planning to take very little time taking photos after the ceremony, since we want to enjoy the time with our friend and family. That really is going to save a lot of money and will give us more time to party and have some fun.
