Wedding Cocktails & Signature Drinks

Weddings are wonderful events; the entire experience from the engagement to the honeymoon is a momentous occasion for the bride and groom. Along the journey there are many parties, showers and receptions that call for a few elegant cocktails. At some weddings, drink is the most important factor in making it a success.

One way to incorporate drinks of your choice into the wedding is create a cocktail menu of a few special cocktails and display a list on the bar. This allows your guests to choose when and what they want to drink. You may choose to only serve these special drinks for a couple of hours post ceremony – remember not to feel obligated to provide an open bar for guests for the entire evening. Serve plenty of water and soft drinks at the reception for the hot, the sensible, the under aged guests, and the designated drivers.

The rule of thumb for choosing a signature wedding cocktail is to choose a drink that represents your story as a couple, the season of your wedding, the formality of your event, while keeping it fun.
