From unique signage to fun games, cocktail hour has the potential to really ‘wow’ your guests (as opposed to them anxiously waiting the reception and dinner!). Take a cue from these wedding professionals who know how to kick it up a notch! Serve up signature cocktails, provide plenty of activities, and pay attention to little details like stir sticks and decor. Below, are a few of our favorite ideas for a colorful cocktail hour – not just in hue, but in personality, too!
