Cocktail Hour Trending for Wedding Receptions

Mini Foods for Wedding ReceptionAre you looking for a way to include an opportunity for fun and socialization for your wedding? Consider a cocktail hour!

An increasing number of caterers, including Fresh and Quick Catering, are offering more than just traditional wedding fare; they’re offering cocktail hour fare for their wedding reception clients. Many couples opt to host a cocktail hour in addition to a traditional wedding reception meal, so it’s an opportunity for your catering company to provide a more complete, comprehensive service.

A wedding cocktail hour provides guests with an enjoyable opportunity to socialize with friends and family who have gathered for the nuptials. It’s also a great way to catch up with any guests who may need to leave prior to the reception.

A cocktail hour, hosted before the reception or even prior to the rehearsal dinner, serves as the perfect opportunity for mingling with friends and family who’ve come from far and wide to attend your nuptials. A wedding cocktail hour is also ideal for couples who are inviting lots of guests who don’t know each other! Many find it less intimidating to approach others who are standing and chatting in small groups (versus approaching and sitting at a table full of strangers), so it can make for a more engaging and less-awkward experience for your guests!

A cocktail hour includes light fare and drinks, so it’s also a great way to take the edge off your hunger if you’re hosting the sit-down reception meal a bit later during the reception (and it keeps the guests entertained while the photographer is taking post-ceremony wedding pictures).
