Your drinks reception can be one of the focal points of your day. It fills the gap between your Guests arrival and the meal being served. If done right, it can entertain your Guests while formal photographs are being taken and be a perfect opportunity for you to mingle with your Guests.
What will your budget allow?
Dependent on your budget, your drinks reception can be as extravagant as money will allow. You can hire in Bartenders to create a wow factor by mixing up personalised cocktails. Or you could keep it simple with a DIY drinks reception from a beer (wheel) barrow to a pimp your Prosecco or gin bar.
One important thing you need to consider for your drinks reception, particularly if there is to feed your guests. There is nothing more uncomfortable at a wedding or event than feeling hungry and wondering how long it is until the food is served. Canapes can come in all forms and guises which are elegant and glamorous. Thankfully, gone are the days when you offered a soggy vol au vent to your Guests.
Entertain your Guests during your Drinks Reception
You may want to consider some entertainment for your Guests during your drinks reception. This can be as simple or as extravagant as you want. Think about your Guests. Are there many children at your wedding or event? Entertainment can be as simple as garden games, or you could hire some musicians or even a magician. Depending on what style of nibbles you are going to offer, why not think about some comedy waiters to serve!
Make your Wedding or Event about you
Remember though, your drinks reception is the perfect time to reflect your personalities and interests into your day – think about this when you are thinking about the food and drink you want to serve. Perhaps you have done a lot of travelling, you could use this to opt for some regional food. Or maybe your event is to celebrate a particular achievement, you could incorporate this theme. Perhaps you have got a love for craft beers, contact a local brewery to develop a personalised beer for your day.
