First impressions are everything. And weddings are no exception. Start your reception off on the right note by greeting your guests with a well planned Welcome Table for your cocktail hour. Not sure what to incorporate? Follow this simple ‘How-To’ for your foolproof tablescape layout.
Cheers to Good Times
Arguably a cardinal rule for any wedding, a signature drink is the perfect way to set the tone for your wedding reception. Impress your guests by making it subtly fit to your theme and color scheme. Get original with your choice of glassware and accessorize wherever possible.
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.
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.
