A Refreshing Approach to the Signature Drink
While the "signature drink" has long been a staple at weddings and events, why not offer guests a bevvy of fun signature drinks at stations to sample while celebrating your nuptials?
From an espresso and tea cart to a scotch bar, a wine tasting station, a brew lounge, and a martini bar, you will give all of your guests something they'll enjoy and talk about for years to come! Wanting tropical flair? Why not offer pina coladas or mint juleps for a hot afternoon soiree? What a great chance to allow the bride and groom, their wedding party, and families, to all make fun suggestions based on their favorite drinks as well!
Think about keeping the costs (and in most cases much less than a standard bar) down by offering one or two types of scotch, rather than an assortment; and don't offer a complete bar with rum, vodka, gin, etc. The key is to offer what you know your guests like. Don't offer liquor that isn't generally popular with your crowd; that's where funds can get wasted quickly. Be sure to offer non-alcoholic beverages at your celebration - whether it's a homemade rosemary lemonade or sparkling water accented with cucumber slices or lemon, offer something that's out of the ordinary. We're still keeping it simple but kicking it up a notch and creating another thoughtful detail for your guests to enjoy.
