Make the food at your wedding something for your guests to remember.

A cocktail hour will keep guests happy while they mingle and wait for the reception to start. It also gives you time to finish having those all-important photos. To keep guests comfortable during the drinks reception, provide seating, games, soft music and an open bar with non-alcoholic options. Appetisers will go down a treat too. Don’t be afraid to be creative – serve edible spoons, or lemon sorbets as a palate-cleanser before the main meal starts.
