Cute Short Wedding Dresses. Exactly what should the bride wear for any cocktail reception? A very fashionable dress, of course! This would be an ideal occasion to choose a knees length or tea period wedding dress over a full size gown with a train. A quick white lace dress used with pearl chandelier ear-rings would be stunning. Another adorable idea is a 1950s influenced party dress with a installed bodice and a full dress which falls slightly under the knee. Pearl chandelier jewelry are a nice update to some classic pearl strand diamond necklace, and of course, you will want a truly fantastic pair of wedding shoes once the gown is not to the ground.
Last but not least, there is the matter of drinks. When you are offering appetizers as an alternative to dinner, be sure to order these in larger quantities you would for a cocktail hours followed by a seated dinner. While people will consume dinner before your wedding, they are going to still come to your office reception planning to nosh, and the final thing any host wants would be to run out of food. A complete open bar would be a wise decision for a cocktail reception, maybe with a couple of classic drinks as the signature drinks (think martinis, Manhattans, and sloe gin fizz). Your guests is going to be sure to enjoy the ambiance and also experience of your hip beverage party wedding reception!
