Kicking off your wedding cocktail hour with delicious drinks is a must. After all, you can’t have a cocktail hour without cocktails! An open bar is always a wonderful option, as your guests can order any drink that they please. In addition, you can add some personalization to your drink menu by creating a signature drink. Take a look at our Bar Guide to discover the tasty drinks that we could serve at your wedding.
You will certainly want to ensure that you have some delicious food to pair with your drinks! However, you will want to present light bites, so that you guests don’t get too full before your wedding meal. Hors d’oeuvres are always a wonderful option, such as pecan chicken bites or jerk chicken skewers. Take a look at our array of Wedding Menus to discover some delicious options for your big day.
While dancing most likely won’t be taking place during your wedding cocktail hour, you can still create a warm and welcoming atmosphere with music! A live band or quartet would be ideal. In addition, you can present some unique forms of fun by booking a photo booth or even a caricature artist to keep your guests entertained.
Your wedding cocktail hour should certainly be a success! These are just a few tips to assist you with planning yours.
