Your wedding day is more than just a ceremony; it's an opportunity to infuse every moment with your flare, creativity and joy, turning it into a lasting memory for everyone present. One brilliant way to add a touch of magic to your celebration is by introducing a surprise cocktail hour, making your wedding truly stand out among wedding inspiration and wedding ideas. Imagine the joy on your guests' faces when, as the night progresses, they discover an unexpected treat waiting for them. Here are some tips to make your cocktail hour truly memorable.
Tokens of Appreciation: For a seated meal, consider wedding favours of a token or drink vouchers at each seat, inviting your guests to exchange them for a variety of expertly crafted cocktails. This gesture not only adds an exciting element to your wedding but also makes your guests feel truly appreciated.
OR... Surprise and Delight: Infuse an element of surprise by keeping the cocktail hour a secret until the moment arrives. Picture the room buzzing with excitement as everyone discovers your generous treat, adding a spontaneous touch to your wedding day. From our experience, this unexpected moment is often a key highlight of the evening.
Timing is Everything: Plan your surprise cocktail hour strategically, scheduling it after dinner but before the dancefloor fills up. You want your guests to enjoy their cocktails without worrying about spills, ensuring they're energized and ready to hit the dance floor with enthusiasm.
Crafted to Perfection: Curate a bespoke menu featuring your favourite drinks and shots as a couple, giving each concoction a unique, personalized touch. At Clink & Drink, we love playing with cocktail names to make them special for our couples, like 'Mint-to-be Mojito' and 'Kate's Love Potion'. Incorporate classic favourites such as Espresso Martinis, Mojitos, and Baby Guinness shots, and even mocktails, creating a diverse selection that caters to every taste.
Your wedding day is an opportunity to create cherished moments and unforgettable experiences. A surprise cocktail hour not only expresses gratitude to your guests but also elevates their day, making your celebration truly exceptional. Let this surprise be a highlight, not just for you, but for everyone sharing in your joyous day.
