The Benefits of a Cocktail Wedding

Cocktail wedding receptions are continuing to be a popular choice for couples getting married. The traditional sit down wedding in a generic ‘one size fits all’ function room definitely isn’t for everyone, and there are a range of reasons why our catering team continue to work with couples to create a wedding reception with a difference.
If you’re planning your nuptials, and you haven’t considered the cocktail wedding format, we give some serious "food for thought"( excuse the pun) why this could be the style of wedding you’ve been looking for.

ALLOW GUESTS TO MINGLE AND BE SOCIAL

Forget the politics of seating arrangements with a cocktail wedding. A stand up cocktail wedding removes the chance of someone being seated next to who they don’t like and the risk that someone feels offended they’re not placed closer to the bridal table also is removed. A cocktail wedding reception is far more fluid, allowing guests mingle and be social. On the wedding day, the bride and groom will also be able to circulate around the reception area far more freely.

SOPHISTICATED WITHOUT THE PRICE TAG

Many cocktail wedding events are a fraction of the cost of what a traditional wedding costs, but are no less sophisticated. As the extra cost of hiring tables chairs, linen, plates and cutlery etc of a traditional wedding would add $15.00 per person, and that is just for eating dinner.
Unlike function venues, we don’t charge unfair wedding premiums simply because the event is a wedding. Our clients still get sophisticated and seasonal food offerings without the premium price tag others charge, allowing more money to go towards other things.

MORE FOOD CHOICES

Guests are presented with more different flavours and food offerings at cocktail wedding with an exciting range of hot and cold canapes and fork food offerings consistently brought out throughout the evening. This makes the food a talking point and can provide more interest in the food than the traditional alternate option of the chicken or beef, offered as the choices for sit down weddings. It’s also a good idea to have set food stations around the room for guests to grab and go as they feel.

MORE FLEXIBLE AND RELAXED FORMAT AND MORE GUESTS

A cocktail wedding is a far more relaxed and flexible affair, but doesn’t have to be any less stylish. Choose from more indoor and outdoor locations, an create food based around a specific theme and venue that you may have in mind.

THINGS TO REMEMBER WITH COCKTAIL WEDDINGS

Have enough seating – Is important that there are still different seating options including lounge style, bar seats, regular seating and other forms of seating scattered around. We recommend a ratio of seats for around a half the number guests.
Make sure there is enough food – This won’t be a problem when using The Roo Brothers Catering, since the last thing we want is for any guest to go hungry.
Don't forget - to have an arrival cocktail as it is, a cocktail style wedding.
