The ‘cocktail hour’ as they call it over the pond or the ‘drinks reception’ as we may refer to it in the UK is most definitely up there on my list of favourite parts of a wedding day.


So what makes this stage of the day so significant you might ask? Well, everyone has just enjoyed seeing the happy couple get hitched and after all of the emotion of a ceremony it certainly is nice to enjoy a cheeky beverage or two and begin to relax into the celebratory vibe of the day. Of course as the bride and groom you will be just about ready to start letting your hair down and getting your drink on now too, so the cocktail hour always becomes one of the most laid-back and lovely times of the day.
