Hello, I was wondering if anyone had any neat ideas for an alternative to having a cocktail hour while we are getting photos done. We will be on a vineyard but cannot afford to send them on a wine tour while we are getting photos done. If anyone has any idea it would be greatly appriciated. Thank you.

Are you SURE you can’t afford to send them on a wine tour? If I went to a wedding at a vineyard I would LOVE to have a bit of a wine tour.
If no wine tour, I am also curious to hear what other people say. How long will you be doing photos for? That would help us think of some ideas knowing how long.
At a friend of mine’s wedding, she had a one-drink-per-guest cocktail hour where we enjoyed the outdoor scenery while they got photos. If you wanted more drinks at that time you paid for them. I had a lovely time (although I did wish that there was some kind of warning on the invitation that this part would be cash bar, as I would have brought more money).

I’m sure I can’t afford it. We are only have 40 people including my fiance and I and our wedding party and we will have four tables of eight for our guests. I’m not sure how long photos would take, the vineyard is located by beautiful water and walkways so I guess it would depend on how many different spots and ideas we an come up with. We are having an open bar and wine served with dinner. The venue is very beautiful and we are also having our ceremony there. So I was hoping I could somehow come up with an alternative but I’m having a difficult time.

Would a coffee bar be out of your price range? Another idea would be a photo scavenger hunt or games where people break into teams. You can adjust balderdash, what’s yours like, dirty minds (only if no kids will be present),who what where, etc. You would need someone to get the good times rolling but I have gone to weddings where this was done and had a blast!

Why have it at a vineyard then? Perhaps you should forgoe a cocktail hour if can’t afford it then, because having a cocktail hour without cocktails at a vineyard seems like an oxymoron. Take all your pictures prior.

I thought that it might be neat to do something a little different.
The games idea sounds really neat. Maybe I will try to do something like that.
