You want your guests to have a memorable experience that they’ll discuss for years. You want them to have the finest food, champagne, company, and music. This is a classic moment.
Cocktail hour is the best occasion for guests who infrequently see each other to reacquaint themselves with each other’s lives. More importantly, this is their opportunity to discuss the beauty of your wedding! Because you won’t be there to visit and entertain your guests, it’s important that someone else carries out your vision. Live music enlivens this fantasy. While guests socialize with family and friends, the music can be a soothing background. Guests can also experience the thrill of a live concert setting by coming close and interacting with the artists.
Once you’ve arrived to your dinner, enjoy live music as part of the lively, elegant ambiance of your special day. Let the champagne flow and the music swell!
Consider hiring the same music group for your ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Past the initial hour, rates drop by 40%!
