Top tips for choosing your Signature Wedding Cocktail
With the huge variety of drink options available, it’s no secret that you are going to need to do a bit of research in the world of cocktails to find “the one” for your wedding. You can have non-alcoholic cocktails popularly known as ‘Mocktails’ however, it is common knowledge that alcohol makes any social gathering a tad bit more lively!
Everyone needs a turn up or two, so why not set the mood for the evening and show your guests a nice time by placing a (your) Signature cocktail in their hands.
We’ve put together some tips that will help you choose the perfect concoction of booze for your big day.
The type of cocktail you choose will depend on the season and time of year your wedding is. For example a spring wedding should have pastel coloured cocktails garnished with fruits or edible flowers.
INCORPORATE YOUR WEDDING COLOURS
What better way to stay within theme than to match your signature cocktail to your wedding colour! It may be difficult to create a cocktail in the exact shade of your wedding colour depending on what it is, but you can pair your drink with a fruit or napkin the same hue as your wedding colour.
REFLECT YOUR STYLE
Let your signature cocktail reflect your personal style. Put a spin on a classic cocktail by adding a few additional ingredients to reflect your love for taking risks, or pick dark coloured mixers to reflect your love of bold colours. If you’re a natural romantic, reflect this in your choice of cocktail by selecting a colour associated with love and romance such as pink or red.
GIVE IT A NAME
What’s better than having your very own wedding cocktail? Giving it a name! No rules here so you can go as cheeky or as subtle as you want – but a cheeky name will surely spice things up a little.
ADD A SPRINKLE OF LOVE
Pick a cocktail that means something to you both. A drink that you had on your first date, or your go-to cocktail on a night out together will ensure that your guests will cheer to everlasting love with a drink in their hands that is meaningful to you and close to your heart.
TWO CAN PLAY THAT GAME
Having a signature cocktail is really cool – but having two wins you a ticket to the “super-cool club”. If you can, why not splurge on His & Hers cocktails? That way you and your significant other can have fun picking your own signature drinks, plus having a choice will definitely be a hit with your guests – hopefully this means you and your guests can have double the fun on your big day.
