There are many different elements of a wedding. The cocktail hour is one that is frequently overlooked when it comes to entertainment. It’s a time when guests are handed drinks and maybe a few appetizers and are expected just to wait around for the bridal party to arrive. Here are a few suggestions for entertaining your guests during this break in the action:

  • DJ – If you’re paying a wedding DJ anyway, put him or her to good use and have some music played in the background during the cocktail hour.
  • Band – The same thing holds true for your wedding band. You can usually save some money by blocking your artist for the entire day rather than having separate entertainment for different parts of the evening.
  • Pianist – A piano player can add a nice mood to the cocktail hour, while still allowing your guests to mingle and enjoy quiet conversations. Plus, many guests like the opportunity to be able to request a song from the piano player.
  • Strings – From a violin soloist to a mix of violins and cello, stringed instruments offer an elegant entry to the venue, and a romantic start to the reception festivities.
