Impress Your Guests: Cocktail Hour!

Cocktail hour is the transition time between the ceremony and reception where guests can mingle and relax, while giving you and your wedding party a chance to have more photos taken (and also relax!). And if you organize beyond snacks and drinks, you've got a real shot at hosting a cocktail hour that your guests won't soon forget! No need to worry, I've compiled a list of my favorite cocktail hour ideas for you. Just get a glass of wine, a notepad and read on. :)

1. Cocktail Hour Lounge Area

With some comfy seating, a few tables, soft music, and perhaps a weather-proof tent; your guests will have the leisure of mingling in a calm, cozy space.

2. Tasty Signature Cocktails

Bring a personal touch to your cocktail hour by serving your guests a special hand-picked drink recipe.

3. Tasting Table

Indulge your guests' appetite for savory and sweet; set up a tasting table where your crowd can sample pairings of wine, cheese, local beers, whiskey, etc.

4. Boozy Popsicle Cocktails

Serve a refreshing combination of fruity popsicles with a chilled cocktail.

5. Cozy Cocktail Hour Fire Pit

Comfort your guests with a romantic outdoor fire. You can even spice it up by providing ingredients to make delectable desserts.

6. Captivate Your Guests with Hired Entertainment

Appoint professional "fun experts" to keep guests amused. For example; belly dancers, caricature artists, a mariachi band, magicians, fire dancers, a live painter, acrobats, the list goes on and on...

7. Get Guests Active with Lawn Games

There's an abundance of options here too, for example; croquet, giant Jenga, Cornhole, Ring Toss, etc...

8. Break the Ice with Table Games

Weather not cooperating? Try some of these indoor games, like Bingo, Tic-Tac-Toe, Mad Libs, Guess Who, etc.
