Plan a beautiful cocktail hour with these tips:
Having a cocktail hour has become more and more customary among brides and grooms – and honestly, it’s a really great idea. It will give you enough time to shoot amazing photos and it will keep your guests entertained while you do this too.
How to plan a beautiful cocktail hour, though? Here are some tips to inspire you:
Create an atmosphere. Simply providing your guests with drinks is not enough – you have to set the mood for the party too. Offer them comfortable seating, have a band or a DJ play some lounge, jazz or classical music and make sure the décor surrounding your guests really goes with everything around it.
Having a signature cocktail is a “must”. Talk to a bartender and see what you can create together. Depending on your wedding theme and preferences, there may be a lot of variations to try out, so you’ll surely find something to suit you. Even more, you don’t even to stop at just one signature cocktail – you can have more than one created and you can name them according to special moments in your life as a couple, according to the wedding party members, and so on.
Appetizers are also very important. Don’t keep your guests hungry! Serve them some passed appetizers to “train” their taste buds for the meal to come. You don’t have to invest a lot of money in these snacks – but do use your creativity when picking them and think “outside of the box” to come up with something your guests will really love.
