    We were not at our cocktail hour.  We were getting our photos taken, half the hour with our bridal party, half the hour just us.  We had a staff member set aside hors d’oeuvres for us and the bridal party.

    Looking back, I wish we had set aside some time between the ceremony and reception to be alone, just the two of us.  No pictures, no family members, no bridal party… just my hubby and I.

    We will not be attending our cocktail hour. We only have a 1 hour gap between ceremony and reception and that time will be used for photos.
