Cocktail hour

I'm sitting here thinking of songs for the cocktail hour. but i'm stuck on what kinda atmostphere is normally created for a cocktail hour. do you do mellow music or dancing type music?

we'll probably do something more mellow. we haven't decided if we'll use the dj for the cocktail hour or use the same musician doing the ceremony music but if we do use the dj we'll probably use the cocktail hour to play some of the songs we really like that aren't appropriate for the dancing later on.

Maybe mellow would work.. was not sure.. coz party type music will get everyone all excited and then they have to come into the reception and sit & listen to speeches & that might just kill the mood? what do u ladies think?

We went the other route.  We had a mariachi trio and everyone loved it.  It really set the party atmosphere!
