A wedding cocktail hour is the beginning of a night filled with celebrations! Cuisinart is here to help you create the perfect cocktail hour with family and friends! From food to beverages, this is your guide:

For a wedding cocktail hour, it is important to have enough space to comfortably fit all your guests. Make sure there is seating, so guests can sit down and enjoy their food. It is not pleasant to stand while eating and holding drinks. Also, ensure that there is enough space in-between your food stations. When food stations are too close to one another in a small area, it forms a crowd and long lines.

It's all in the Details:
This is YOUR day! Add some pizazz to your cocktail hour with elegant decor and entertainment. Depending on the type of music you like, you can have a live band or DJ play soft, soothing music during the cocktail hour. You can also personalize the food and drinks with mini monogram flags or drink stirrers. Now, let's move on to the drinks and food!

When it comes to serving drinks during a cocktail hour, there are plenty of options. You can even customized cocktail for the night...what's your favorite drink? Also, be sure to have non-alcoholic choices available, this can be a mocktail of your customized drink or sparking water/cider. Quick Tip: at the start of the cocktail hour, have servers pass out your customized drink so your guests do not rush and crowd the bar area.

When it comes to serving food, think about your favorites and create miniature versions of them! Below are our favorite appetizers:

The cocktail hour is the start to a wonderful night filled with love and celebrations! Cuisinart hopes that your journey as a married couple brings you everlasting happiness!
