5 Great Ideas for an Original and Unforgettable Cocktail Party
5 August, 2020
Cocktail parties are definitely one of my favorite parts of a wedding. The pre-wedding stress is gone, the beautiful vows were exchanged and the bar is open. It's the perfect moment for you and your guests to mingle and get to know one an other, and of course, make their way to get a photo with the newly weds!
Here are 5 cool ideas for your wedding cocktail party:
1.- HIS AND HER SIGNATURE DRINKS.
It's always fun when the bride and groom add a personal touch. The signature drinks could be the bride and groom's favorite drinks or something special selected by the couple.
2.- NEVER FORGET TO FEED YOUR GUESTS
Appetizers during cocktail hour are a must and something that you should never forget since your guests will probably be a bit hungry after the ceremony and it’s never good to drink on an empty stomach. Besides they will surely need the fuel to party all night long!
3.- LIVE MUSIC IS ALWAYS A GREAT IDEA
Live music for a cocktail party creates a different vibe. From an elegant jazz band to a single guitar player-- your guests will surely enjoy and appreciate the live entertainment.
4.- COMFY wedding setting
Lounges, rugs, cushions! The most important thing here is to make your guests feel comfortable at any time. Select a comfortable set of couches and add your personal touch with nice cushions and decor. Your guests will be thrilled to have a comfy couch to relax their feet for a bit.
5.- MAKE A SEATING CHART
We highly recommend having a visible seating chart. That way your guests will know where and who they are seating with. You can get the party going by adding a tequila shot at the table, or maybe adding wedding favors so everyone gets their gift as they sit down.
