There are so many great ways to start out your wedding celebration, but we think having a charcuterie platter out for your guests during cocktail hour is our favorite idea! Have a great selection of meats, cheeses, fruits, and crackers on a beautiful platter for your guests to snack on as they wait for the reception to begin.

You can also style one of these beautiful platters from Zola for guests who visit your new home after the wedding. We love the idea of sharing a glass or two of wine over a few types of cheese and artisanal meats with your friends and new spouse. Visit Zola today to start your registry and secure your very own Vietri Platter and cheese knives to prepare for celebrations as a newly married couple! And Once Wed readers get $25 toward their registry if you sign up today!
