Who doesn’t love cocktail hour at a wedding? Drinks are poured, tasty appetizers are passed and guests mix and mingle before a memorable evening ahead! Consider it the pre-party to your reception and you know that what means — good cocktail hour music is a must!
This is a great time to show off your personality as a couple because there is no right or wrong cocktail hour soundtrack. In other words, don’t feel like you have to play Jazz or slower songs that could bring the vibe down. Why not play your favorite Hip Hop hits, just instrumental versions of them? MIND BLOWN! How about turning things up a notch with swing music? Could you imagine a cocktail hour featuring movie and & TV show themes? How unique is that? The only ‘rule’ we suggest: Keep the music volume mellow enough so conversations keep flowing!
