Why Do I Have To Have A Cocktail Hour? |Triad Wedding Planner

COCKTAIL HOUR 2The ceremony is now over. You, your new hubby, the wedding party and family have been whisked away to a secret location to take your formal photographs. What will your guest do for that hour? This is why you need a cocktail hour. Your guest can mingle and have some light hor doerves and drinks. Be sure to have light finger foods. Something that the guest can easily pick up and carry even while holding a drink. If you choose to have wedding entertainment, this would be a great time for them to perform.

Be sure to have enough refreshments, you don’t want to  run out. Also, you don’t want to serve anything too heavy right before dinner, but you don’t want your guest hungry waiting for the reception to start. Overall, this is a time for your guest to relax.

Happy Planning!!

That’s Entertainment! |Wedding Entertainment

Local bellydancer: Xena

A fun way to add flaire to your wedding is to bring in some entertainment. Belly dancers, ball room dancers, magicians, specialty bands are just a few examples of what you could choose. Choose your entertainment from your wedding theme, you hobbies or your personality.

Always check with your venue to make sure what you have planned is allowed and ask if you need any permits. If you have an older crowd you may want to include entertainment and exclude dancing. Another time to include entertainment is during dinner or if you schedule is tight. Whatever you choose have fun with it, think outside of the box.
