Champagne is the most versatile signature drink, and there are many creative ways to serve it. Pour it over cotton candy or popsicles for a fun treat, or simply rim it with edible glitter.


Playful Presentation

Mix things up by presenting your drinks in coconuts, Mason jars, miniature liquor bottles, or vintage cups. If you choose something quirky that reflects your personality, guests will remember it for years to come.

Are your completely different tastes making it hard to decide what to serve? Offer more variety with his and hers signature cocktails, catered to what the bride and groom each prefer. Whatever the combination, two drinks are better than one!


‘Tis the Season

For seasonally-minded celebrations, choose a drink that ties in with the time of year. Drinks like spiced eggnog are perfect for winter weddings and fresh mint mojitos are great for summer weddings.

Finish off your cocktails with sweet garnishes like fruit, sprigs of lavender, or fun food touches such as rock candy. Other drinks will look adorable in combination with cookies or miniature appetizers.


Personalize It

Lastly, make sure to personalize. Brand your drinks with a custom stirrer, crazy straws, quote flags, or printed napkins with your monogram, initials or names – not that anyone would forget that it’s your wedding, of course.
