Gone are the days of cookie cutter weddings where you pick from a set menu of pre-packaged items! In today’s world, the wedding is a direct reflection on the unique personalities of the bride and groom, and couples are looking for ways to convey that to their guests. This year, one hot trend we’ve seen popping up is the signature drink–a special cocktail that is either a custom-created item for the couple or even something as simple as sharing the favorite drink of the bride or groom (or both)! Having a signature drink at your cocktail hour or wedding reception is sure to delight guests who are looking for a drink beyond a simple glass of wine or alcohol with a mixer.
When considering a signature drink for your wedding, try to bring in your personal favorites! One couple created a drink and gave it their moniker, a combination of their names. The drink was a combination of their favorite flavors–tequila for him, and watermelon for her. The result was a delicious tropical cocktail that perfectly complimented their names, wedding location (Mexico),and desire to have the best party their guests had ever seen!
Another couple worked with their planner A Good Affair to create cotton candy colored hues throughout their wedding at Pelican Hill. Their signature cocktail? A martini garnished with real cotton candy, of course!
Be as creative as you desire to dream up a cocktail as perfect as the two of you are for one another!
Luxe Tip: Consider hiring a bartender specifically for a signature drink station, possibly even creating craft cocktails on demand! The more unique the items the better to give your guests a taste of the cocktails you love that might become their new favorite drink!
