We have seen very often lately a trend to a more relaxed gathering after the Ceremony, the “Cocktail Wedding Reception”. It comes instead of the classic cocktail hour followed by a 4 to 5 hours sit-down dinner/buffet reception.
The Cocktail Style Wedding Reception can have the traditional passing hot & cold hors d’ oeuvres, displays of raw bars with assorted seafood, crudités and dippings, cheese and fruits, and/or carving and pasta stations. Desserts can mean more than a Wedding Cake or Cupcakes, adding mini desserts and the coffee/tea station…
We’ve got the feeling it brings a more informal atmosphere, encourages mingling along the guests, they typically tend to move around and socialize a little more than with the traditional full service dinner receptions…It could also be a budget friendly alternative for Brides & Grooms, though not necessarily… Why not, this is a nice option if it’s held at the right venue, well organized, accommodating guests with enough tables and sits.
