Wedding Cocktail Food Must Knows!

I find that lots of venue and vendors like to cut your wedding costs by reducing cocktail hour food. This concerns me as people drink more during cocktail hour and are more likely to do so on an empty stomach. Once you get going the crowd is more likely to get wasted more quickly.

In determining how much food to serve for cocktail hour, you’ll want to consider how long it will last for. Cocktail hours last anywhere from 45 minutes to 1.5 hours.

After watching this short video you will be well prepared, no matter how long your wedding cocktail hour lasts and your guests will be happy and walking straight.
