The cocktail hour is one of the best part of the wedding. Get lovely appetizers such as shrimp cocktail shooters, soft pretzels or French fries for your guests.
Go Simple but Elegant
Plan out some simple snacks to entertain the guests before the main dish. Most guests would be famished by the time they arrive at the reception. This will satisfy them before the main dish.
Have a Sumptuous Meal
Hire a good caterer who make delicious meals on your wedding day. There are wedding receptions that have the catering services all planned out. If that is the case, then get familiar with the competence of the caterer. No one wants disappointment at the last minute, especially on one’s wedding day.
However, if you cannot afford hiring a caterer, then a family-made meal can also make a perfect refreshment depending on the number of guests to grace the event.
Hire a Good Bartender to Make Drinks and Beverages
A good bartender can also make the guests lively while they wait in long lines to get something to drink.
Have Sufficient Water
Make sure that water is readily available on tables and in the bar. This will help to offset the effect of alcohol consumption.
Determine the Number of Guests Attending Your Wedding Reception
The number of expected guests determines the amount of foods and drinks to be served. Get an approximate amount of expected guests to avoid shortage.
Have Surplus of Foods and Drinks
It’s much better to have surplus rather than being short of foods and drinks. Take note of people not in your guests list such as the photographer or DJ.
Also note that some guests may have double of what is being served.
Know that there will be some people with dietary restrictions. Be prepared to provide for vegetarians and other variants.
Consider the Method of Food Service
You could plan of having that of English, Russian, Queridon service or even a buffet.
