22 Feb Inspiration for Planning Your Queens Wedding Cocktail Hour
So many events will comprise your big day, such as your wedding cocktail hour. From your walk down the aisle until you bid farewell to your guests, you will be involved in many festivities, all of which should be planned with care.
Have you started planning your wedding cocktail hour yet?
We believe that every element of your big day should be spectacular! That’s why, here at Villa Russo, we have gathered some inspiration to assist you with planning your own wedding cocktail hour. If you are ready to become inspired, be sure to continue reading:
- Delicious Drinks. What would your wedding cocktail hour be without cocktails? Of course, you must serve some delicious drinks to your guests! If you aren’t offering an open bar, it would be best to offer a few options for your guests, such as one or two signature cocktails, wine, and beer. This way, each of your guests can get a drink that pleases their palate.
- Scrumptious Food. Your guests will be looking forward to your wedding meal! However, seeing as your meal won’t be immediately served, you will want to offer them a bite to eat to hold them over. Finger foods are ideal for your wedding cocktail hour, as guests will be walking around and mingling. Consider serving foods such as mini sliders, mini grilled cheese sandwiches paired with tomato soup shooters, or even fried macaroni and cheese balls.
- Entertaining Music. A silent atmosphere can create an awkward and displeasing ambiance. Therefore, you will certainly want music to be present for your wedding cocktail hour. While guests most likely won’t be dancing at this time, you should keep your music warm and welcoming. Artists such as Jack Johnson, John Legend, and Frank Sinatra would be ideal to present.
Your wedding cocktail hour deserves to be greatly enjoyed by you and your guests! These are just a few tips to ensure that yours is planned to perfection.
