Everyone Missed Cocktail Hour!
Have you ever been to an event or wedding and it just didn’t flow? Maybe there was some confusion or people just didn’t really know what was going on or where to go. It is all in the execution!
Can you imagine this scenario for an outside wedding?
Wedding invitation start time is 4:00
Guests arrive between 3:30 - 4:00
No one told the guests what to do so they just stood around outside for an hour waiting for the ceremony to begin at 5:00.
The bartender and appetizers were inside, waiting for the guests.
Around 4:45 the groom realizes what is happening and comes out and tells everyone about the food and drinks.
Guests are now juggling food and drinks on their laps, while standing up and sitting down, and during the ceremony.
Half the guests completely missed cocktail hour and half are paying attention to their plate instead of the ceremony.
What about the photos? Those don’t look great with plates and glasses on the ground or people eating during the ceremony.
Yes, this can easily happen if you don't have a coordinator who is responsible for making announcements and providing instructions to the guests.
It is a bit like all of the instruments of the orchestra were in the room, but if the conductor isn’t there … it is just sound and not music.
Pulling it all together really is a full-time job and requires a professional with the experience and knowledge for perfect execution. A planner and coordinator are essential.
With all events and wedding there are a million details and we love handling all of them. Perfect Events by Jan offers professional planning and execution for safe events and weddings filled with happiness and joy.
Happiness and joy,
