Cocktail wedding reception styles
A cocktail wedding reception is a classic for a reason.
Elegant, beautiful and relaxed.
If you’re thinking of having a cocktail-themed reception, there are plenty of ways to make it unique.
Have a read below as we take you through all the little things you can add to keep it on theme.
A Signature Cocktail
What is a cocktail wedding reception with some cocktails?
Serve a signature cocktail that represents you as a couple (or maybe it’s just your favourite).
We recommend a water cooling station with flavoured water to keep everyone hydrated.
A GAME STATION
Not everyone is a big dancer
That’s why a game station could be a fantastic idea for your reception.
Set up some giant Jenga, karaoke or even a wedding-themed quiz, to get everyone involved.
Looking for something a bit different?
With a live art set up, a painter is seated at the reception and guests watch them paint the wonderful day.
Not only is this perfect for creating a romantic ambience, but you also get to take a unique memento home!
Polaroids & Photo Booths
Who doesn’t love a photo booth?
Hire a photo booth for your reception or leave an array of Polaroid cameras around for guests to take their own.
Polaroid pictures are also a great idea to use for seating charts.
Sometimes it’s the simple things.
But having custom elements at your reception can be special.
We love the idea of custom napkins, but you can also extend this to the menu, glassware and seating cards.
There are so many options when it comes to a cocktail-themed reception.
