4 Reasons to Have Signature Cocktails at Your Wedding

1. Another Way to Show Off Your Palette

Having a signature drink is a creative way to tie in your wedding color palette throughout your cocktail hour, as well the reception. Plus, signature cocktails that match your palette look amazing in photos and are a great idea if you want to get your wedding published.

2. They Can Save You Money

Open bars can be really expensive, but if you limit guests to beer, wine, and 2-3 signature cocktails, you will save money by limiting the variety of hard liquor available. Additionally, if you specify that guests should not have shots, it will not only save you money but also prevent guests from becoming too intoxicated.

3. It’s Easier for Your Guests

By having a signature cocktail menu, you’ll make it easier for your guests to decide what to drink. Your guests won’t have to worry about what they should order. I know I get stuck and just revert back to the same old drink if I have no signature cocktail options to choose from. Cutting out this apprehension over what to order will diminish the length of lines and also give people more time to enjoy the events. Your signature cocktail will also be sure to be a great conversation starter!

4. They Reflect Your Personalities

If you choose to have signature cocktails, have either 2 or 3. Be sure that you and your fiancé have fun naming them, the options are endless! The drinks’ taste and their names will be a very fun reflection of your personalities. Guests will love seeing little hints of yourselves throughout your wedding.
