We are getting married in 5 months and can not wait, but we are having trouble with attending social hour and being introduced at social hour and then how do we announce dinner to start. Does anyone have any ideas or has anyone been to a wedding where the bride and groom were introduced at social hour and how they announced dinner?

DH and I attended most of our cocktail hour. There were no introductions, we just walked in and started mingling. The intros are generally saved for the reception.

so would it be weird to attend social hour and then leave and be introduced at the beginning of dinner?

I don’t think so.. We’ll be doing the same thing!

We skipped the announcements alltogether. The whole concept of being announced just seemed weird to me.

It would depend on how formal your wedding is. But if your folks are casual, you may not feel the need for any announcement for cocktails. However, do something special for your wedding reception entrance as it makes for great pictures.

The only reason i’m even having a cocktail hour is to keep quests occupied while FI and I and family are off taking pictures. We won’t come in till the reception.

@Ms. Jessica B: The way it worked at our wedding was the venue staff announced that the ballroom was ready so all of our guests made their way in there. The BP and parents stayed back in the cocktail hour space and we were introduced from there.
@lovekiss: I kind of wish we would have, too. It was more awkward than anything.
