Wedding Pre-Dinner Drinks

Pre dinner drinks is an important time for your guests to relax and socialise after your wedding ceremony is over. It is also a subtle way to introduce your guests to your wedding reception venue, as it gives them a prelude of what's to come.

Most wedding reception centres will allocate a specific area of their venue for your pre dinner drinks, separate from where your wedding reception will be held.

What are the pre dinner entertainment and music options?

The options for the type of pre dinner entertainment you may choose, will depend largely on the way you would like to prepare your guests for your wedding reception.

It is more common to choose pre dinner music that is more subtle, since your guests will be wanting to talk. Your major pre dinner entertainment options will most likely include classical ensembles, jazz ensembles, and soloists.
The actual pre dinner music and song options you choose are not as critical. For example, there are many classical and jazz pieces that you may never have heard of previously, but are perfectly suited to creating the effect you're looking for.
Remember, you do not need to choose "show stopping" tunes at this point of your wedding reception, since it is highly unlikely that your guests will want (or be ready) to sing or dance along anyway.
The art of integrating music into your wedding reception is done so very subtly, starting the evening with pre dinner drinks (softer slower music), and gradually building to a crescendo, with your Bridal Waltz and hence the opening of the dance floor.
