Wedding Music: The Cocktail Hour

Have you been to a wedding lately? Chances are, you have! If you weren't the bride, groom, or part of the wedding party, you probably experienced the lull between the time you arrived at the reception and the time the wedding party arrived. This isn't always the most comfortable time for guests at a wedding reception, and there's something you can do about it! 

We love playing during the cocktail hour at wedding receptions, and there are certain benefits for guests when we play. Here is how the experience plays out: 

After the wedding, your guests enter the reception venue greeted by live guitar and vocal music from Heather & Marty. Instantly they know this is not your standard wedding reception. The inviting softness of the music sets the tone for what is to come. 

As the guests make their way to the refreshment area and later their tables, the music keeps the energy up and the mood festive. The conversation flows as they listen to a mix of jazz, pop and country standards spanning nearly the entire 20th century. Time seems to rush by as they wait for the bride and groom to finish wedding pictures and make their grand entrance.

With dinner the music tempo is slower, the room quieter and the food even more delicious!

As the guests gradually finish dinner and the conversation slows, the music becomes a pleasant distraction with guests discussing favorite songs. The tempo increases as the anticipation builds until finally the wedding party signals they are ready to pay tribute to the bride and groom. The party has started!
