Darling Husband 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.

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 Fiance 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 Bridal Party 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.
