Ceremony Cocktails

Traditionally, wedding ceremonies are followed by cocktail hours where guests can order drinks, mingle and enjoy hors d’oeuvres before dinner. But, what if you consider a twist on tradition where guests are greeted with champagne at a ceremony entrance or offered beverages to simply stay cool and hydrated during the vow exchange?


For adults-only weddings, we think this is a fun and unexpected way to welcome guests. If there are children in attendance, try switching it up and offering lemonade or soda to create a fun and more laid back atmosphere.

If your ceremony is held in a church or other place of worship, this may not fall in line with tradition. Even so, guests will always appreciate the thought of providing bottled water or a light refreshment no matter where the ceremony is taking place, just check with your venue and location for rules and availability first.
