  • Easy Mingling. Your guests will spend their time walking around and mingling with one another during your wedding cocktail hour. In addition to great conversation, they will indulge in the scrumptious food that you will be presenting. It is important that they experience ease when eating! So, presenting the right foods is of importance. Foods that are easy to handle and consume would be best, such as mini grilled cheese sandwiches paired with tomato soup shooters. Or, fried macaroni and cheese balls.

  • A Dash of Personalization. What would your wedding cocktail hour be if delicious cocktails weren’t presented? For your special event, an open bar is always ideal, so that your guests have the opportunity to drink anything that they please. However, know that you can add to the menu by creating signature cocktails exclusive to your wedding. Choose to create one for the bride and one for the groom, to provide your guests with some scrumptious options.

  • The Perfect Atmosphere. The ambiance that you create for your wedding cocktail hour is of importance! Therefore, music should be presented, as to set just the right appeal. After all, a silent atmosphere is never ideal, and can cause an awkward appeal. A live band is best, as they can showcase warm and welcoming music that will have your guests at ease and excited to move forward to your reception.

Your wedding cocktail hour should be enjoyed by all of your guests! These are just a few tips to assist you with planning yours. Are you ready to book your Ridgeland, Mississippi wedding planner?
