If it’s to die for, I’d do it.  I’d try to get them to include an optional liquor shot since you have open bar though 🙂

RenoSweeney24:  That price does seem totally absurd. Is any part of your wedding outside? Or, would you be serving the hot chocolate as people arrive or something? If either of these is the case, it might be a nice touch. But if it would just be part of the regular drink package, like with dinner, etc. I don’t think I’d bother. Once everyone is inside and mingling and dancing, I don’t think the novelty would be appreciated enough to make it worth the cost.

Hot chocolate but it won’t be cold? I wouldn’t want hot chocolate if it wasn’t cold outside.

It depends on the hot chocolate, really. If it is a powdered mix/premade syrup, no way!! If it is freshly made with high quality chocolate, sign me up even at that price!

 

keep in mind though, even if it is orgasmically good it isnt everyone’s bag. You could probably get away with two in ten turning it down, at least.

I guess it comes down to how much you really really want it! What would the total cost be?

As a guest, if you are already having an open bar I might not be able to hit up the hot chocolate, even though I’d really want to.

Oh, then go for it! That sounds like a nice touch for the ceremony.

I say let your guest know ahead of time that your wedding will be taking place outside so they can dress accordingly. I think it would be a neat idea to serve hot chocolate during cocktail hour and hold off on the open bar until the reception. This way everyone get to have a cup of hot chocolate if they want it. If you have an open bar people would be more focused on drinking that than the hot chocolate.

RenoSweeney24:  So I stalked your menu post — omg, sounds sooo good! I have to say, as a guest, I would SOOOO much rather have the cheese display during cocktail hour rather than hot chocolate upon arrival, especially if it’s going to be 60-70 degrees. I would seriously MISS the cheese, whereas the hot chocolate would never even occur to me so I wouldn’t miss it at all. I know the cheese is double the price of the hot chocolate, but …. that’s just my opinion. I’d prefer cheese over crepes even, although it sounds like you really have your heart set on the crepes. (Also, in my mind, cheesy savory crepes are no substitute for tiny hunks of plain old cheese. Just gimme the cheese!)

If it going to be that little people I don’t think you really should do hot chocolate at all and just have an open bar and food. If you really want hot chocolate than do that but I honestly don’t think a lot of guest will drink them. Or talk to your guest and see what they think of the idea.
