Times have changed, but cocktail hour still takes place at 6:00 p.m. Most of us are already too familiar with cocktail hour's cousin: Happy Hour. With these bridesmaid gifts, you don't have to head out to the bar for a good time. These chic bridesmaid gifts make hosting your own cocktail circle a cinch. You'll need a flirty cocktail dress, bottles of your favorite libation, and a few good friends.
