    @unixfairy:  I’m a little confused by the options. Am I reading this right?:
    A. 3 hours apps & all cocktails paid

    B. Restaurant with dinner & 2 drinks paid  

    C. Private party with buffet & 2 drinks paid

    I’d prefer the drop-in cocktail hour to a structured dinner.  If I’m coming to your Vegas wedding from Out of Town, I’m probably making a weekend of it and will want to make my own plans for dinner at restaurants I like or want to try.

    My vote would be for the cocktail hour, but I would suggest appetizers that are very different from whatever you would be serving the following night (assuming you would have appetizers as a part of your reception).

    I would prefer the cocktail hour because:

    -it allows for different travel schedules

    -allows those who want to try something special for dinner to do so

    -allows those who are tired from travelling to leave when they choose

    – allows people ( including the bride and groom) to circulate instead of just talking with only those seated near them.

    My vote is for the cocktail hour as well.  I’ve never been to Las Vegas, and I’d appreciate the welcome option, but I’d also like the chance to explore the areas as well.  I think the cocktail hour would be the best option, especially for Out of Town guests, who may want to spend their free time exploring the city!
