Wedding Reception Shot Recipes

I know I have raved about my wedding planner a gazillion times, but she really made our event come together. After meeting us, she had a great suggestion for the reception to keep it… lively! A specialty shot every hour. Hello amazing idea! Our reception was going to be strictly beer & wine (so we wouldn’t need to hire a bartender and all that). It also helped keep costs down. So, a special shot once an hour seemed like a blast.

Since I’m total cheese, I requested that our DJ play LMFAO’s “Shots” when it was time to line up and grab a shot. It was hilarious and one of my favorite parts of the wedding. My wedding planner’s team made the shots as we went along and put them in this icy dispenser. They were just fabulous. It was so fun.

Hit play!
