THE COCKTAIL HOUR
This is where I have performed at a weddings the most. If you are having alcohol at your wedding this is usually where most people will be having their first drink. The wedding party traditionally disappear for photos, so you want to keep your guests entertained.
Musically a few things to think about are:
Location - Is it outside, inside, spread through different rooms.
Length - If you have a midday wedding and you’re not sitting down for food until 5pm you have about 3 and a half hours where you are going to be wanting to think about music.
Type - Live musicians, DJ or background music.
Again, think about your vibe and how you envision your day. This should help you figure out what you want musically here
