Monday Funday: Creative Cocktail Hour

Whether you are taking pictures during the break between your ceremony and reception, or being the life of the party with your friends and family, you want to plan a cocktail hour that everyone will enjoy! Check out some creative ideas we have to add a fun twist to your classic cocktail hour. 

First things first, your guests need somewhere to go! Invite them to sit in a lounge area made up of beautiful furniture like this one.

Do a tasting! Invite your guests to a wine or beer tasting, or whatever you and your new spouse love to drink.

Introduce your guests to new food! This is their chance to try something new. Of course, along with your creative options you may want to have something you know people are comfortable with.

Invite friends and family to play some outdoor games if you are having a more casual wedding, it will get everyone involved and having fun.

If it is later in the day, and a fire seems like a good idea, why not roast some marshmallows!
