Downtime Fun

If not planned properly a ‘cocktail hour’ can feel like a ‘cocktail never-ending night’! Help your guests pass the time by keeping them occupied with conversation starting eye candy. Consider featuring a creative guestbook alternative where guests can leave you their well wishes.

Keep the Momentum Going

Never leave your guests unsure of what to do or where to go next. Guide your guests to their dinner seats with a well laid out display. If logistics permit, use a seating chart for its ease of reference.

Send Off

You started things off with a great first impression, now end them off on a high note with a thoughtful gift for guests. Skip the expected boxed chocolate favor and give them something they’ll enjoy long after your day is done.
