Creative Decor Ideas for the Wedding Cocktail Hour

The cocktail hour at weddings is always memorable (good or bad), but these party ideas will ensure a seamless and fun transition from ceremony to reception for your guests. It’s a tough call – your guests want to get to the reception and get fed, and you want to get those stunning sunset pictures. The key to keeping party-goers patient is an enjoyable cocktail hour with plenty of activities, drinks, and small bites to tide people over. We rounded up some of the best ideas for cocktail receptions including unique drink displays, bar setups, and pretty decor!
