I’m hoping that mingling would be enough for me.  I’m also doing a champagne pass and tray pass of a few appetizers. 

I think the slideshow idea is great!

I don’t think I have ever been to a wedding a found the cocktail hour to be too long. Between the food, drinks, music, and just going around and talking to guests maybe even other family members they haven’t seen in a while is usually plenty. I wouldn’t worry too much about filling this time.

I think mingling is enough. But if you did want something more, I’ve been to weddings that have photo booths or someone making silhouettes during the cocktail hour for entertainment.

I feel like the cocktail hour is really the only time during the wedding day that people can really be chatty. They can’t talk during the ceremony, and they’re usually eating and dancing during the reception, and it’s usually too loud to talk anyway. In the words of Michael Scott: “KISS: Keep it simple stupid!”. Just let them mingle.

I agree. How about a homemade photo booth.
