Should You Consider Providing Pre-Ceremony Refreshments?

Offering refreshing snacks or drinks before your wedding ceremony can give you a way to extend a friendly greeting to your guests. The right beverage can be a great way to acknowledge the season of your special day. A refreshing cocktail before a warmer wedding can be welcomed by guests. If you plan to host a winter wedding, cups of hot cocoa can be warmly received by people upon arrival. Offering snacks can be appreciated when you have a reception later in the evening, as guests may arrive hungry. If you are encouraging people to bring their kids to your wedding, or if you have guests who do not drink, make sure your pre-ceremony refreshments include non-alcoholic beverages.

Making Sure People Are Comfortable And Warmly Received Before Your Ceremony

Pre-ceremony refreshments can help people shake off the effects of the elements, and put them in a happy mood before your event officially begins. If you have a ceremony taking place later in the evening, snacks can keep guests comfortable until your reception dinner. For many couples, offering pre-ceremony treats serves as a great way to show appreciation to arriving guests, as they are not available to greet them in person.

Providing Non-Alcoholic Beverages As Part Of Your Refreshments

If you expect children to arrive at your wedding, or if you have friends or family members who do not drink, make sure there are non-alcoholic options with your refreshments. If it is warmer out, lemonade and sparkling water can offer plenty of refreshment. If your wedding takes place in colder months, you can greet people with cocoa.
