5 Signature Wedding Drink Ideas
Signature Wedding Drink Ideas
Ahh, the fun part of planning a wedding, the signature drink. By now, at least in an ideal world, you have your music booked, venue booked, catering taken care of, photographer booked, and all the other small, yet very important, parts of the wedding figured out. So what about drinks, the pièce de résistance, the “dancing juice”, as Bruno Mars refers to it as. You want something simple, yet, elegant. Something that does the job, but isn’t too harsh. Something that fits the theme and color scheme, and something that tells something about the couple getting married. You can most certainly have an open bar that serves everything, but having a signature drink really brings a unique aspect to the wedding reception.
You can have a lot of fun deciding on what your signature drink will be. You can choose a drink that you ordered on your first date, or even an “experimental” drink that was made at home that became ‘your’ drink. Matching the drink with the theme of the wedding can really have your guests talking about it. A farm wedding, think mason jar. A very formal wedding, think martini or champagne glass. Making the color pop is another tactic to leave your guests in awe. You can choose something very contrasting, or choose a drink that has the same color as your center piece or the same color as the cake.
Having trouble deciding on one? No problem! Try to narrow it down to a couple of drink options and make it a “his and hers” option. This way, you can have best of both worlds and your able to please everyone of your guests. What ever you decide, remember, simplicity is often your best friend!
There are so many great drinks to choose from, and so many options to make your drink menu stand out. In case you were needing some help getting the ball rolling on deciding on a drink, here are 5 signature wedding drink ideas that we’ve seen work wonders in the past.
