Perfect Cocktail Hour Music

Congrats! You’re officially a newlywed! Cocktail hour on your wedding day is a perfect break between your ceremony and reception dinner where guests can mingle and get into party mode. Your cocktail hour would not be complete without a feel-good playlist or some live entertainment to add to the vibes of your special day!

Music will play an important role in every part of your wedding, but your cocktail hour shouldn’t be too high-energy (we have to save that for the reception party!) but instead, a solo acoustic guitarist or string quartet would be perfect. The goal for us is to keep the tunes happy and uplifting while giving your guests a chance to mingle. We have also created a playlist for you that includes forever classics like Etta James’s “At Last” and contemporary hits like The Lumineers’ “Stubborn Love.” We are sure these tunes will have everyone humming along and getting in the mood to celebrate!
