A surefire way to entertain guests while you take wedding photos is by hosting a cocktail hour. Serve up anything from craft beer to mimosas or, more simply, lemonade and sodas to refresh your guests pre-reception. Here, six ways to get creative with the presentation, from a rustic bar cart to a make-your-own drink station!

A Lemonade Stand

Serve up classic lemonade or add a specialty flavor (give or take the vodka) for a spin on a favorite childhood pastime.

An Ice Bar and Luge

For a luxe wedding, go all-out with a bar made of ice! Or opt for a custom ice luge, which guests will have a blast pouring drinks through.

A Make-Your-Own Mimosa Bar

Let guests pick their favorite juice and fruit garnish for their personalized mimosa. This one is also a great option for your bridal shower, getting ready on the wedding day or the day-after brunch.

Bottled Beer In A Boat

If you’re having a nautical or lakeside wedding, fill a canoe or rowboat with ice and offer guests to bottled brews and sodas.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
