A Summer Cocktail Hour

Summer time is almost here and many brides want to have their events take place outside. Be very careful with this. Many think since there is no snow and the temperature is warmer, it’s a best to host the cocktail hour outdoors. We recommend bride’s have this indoors, especially if the ceremony is outdoors, to give your guests a break from the sun and heat. Although the summer brings warmer weather, there are other issues to be concerned about. Extreme heat, humidity and rain can make any event unpleasant and put a damper on the festivities. If it is hot, you have to worry about food being affected and possibly spoil if out in the heat too long. Another issue is cocktail hour music and finding the appropriate power source for the musician or dj. If your event begins in the evening, you have to find or provide a light source to keep the outdoor area lit for guests. Men are usually dressed in Suits or Tuxedos…again.. making it even warmer for them. We suggest finding a compromise and host cocktail hour indoors with a view or an option for your guests to go out on a balcony on their own. To be safe and make your guests comfortable we suggest hosting your cocktail hour indoors.

A pandit brings his own personality to a wedding so it is important that the pandit’s personality and the personality of you and your fiancĂ© as a couple align.

It can be difficult to find a gift for your bridesmaids,especially with a destination wedding. We found the perfect accessory, shoes.

TOMS Shoes are simple, comfortable and stylish. You can have everyone wear flats or high wedges that come in a variety of colors and materials, such as sequence,lace, or linen. They even have shoes for the bride, groom, groomsmen, and kids.TOMS Shoes will match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need.

When you are having a large event it may be difficult to determine how many bars to have for your guests. You want to make sure that no one is waiting too long for a drink all while being graciously served. A good rule of thumb is to have 1 bar per 100 guests. So if you have 500 guests then we suggest 5 bars spread throughout your venue or you can do 2 bars in the back of the ballroom with 2 bartenders each and one extra one for overflow of guests. This will allow your guests toget their favorite drink almost any where from your event with ease. We also suggest that you include some cocktail high tables around the bar area as this allows your guests to put their drink down, do this at the cocktail hour and the reception.

When it comes to the cocktail hour!

I had a bride ask me a good question this weekend.. am I allowed to come to the cocktail hour... the answer is YES!!!! The newest trend is to have both the bride and groom come to attend the cocktail hour. We suggest the groom where his tux but the bride where a beautiful cocktail dress and not the reception outfit. We found some long and glamourous cocktail dresses that would be the WOW factor for the guests. It is really a fun way to mingle with your guests.

Just because we love this short dress too!
