Cheers to Love: Wedding Signature Drinks


When planning a wedding, every detail counts in making your special day unforgettable. One delightful trend that personalizes the experience and impresses guests is the inclusion of wedding signature drinks. These beverages, often customized to reflect the tastes and personalities of the couple, are not just refreshments but a highlight of the celebration. Let’s dive into how you can incorporate these delightful concoctions into your own wedding, complete with common cocktail ideas, tips on designing signature cocktail signs, and creative naming conventions.

Common Cocktail Ideas

Choosing the right base for your wedding signature cocktails involves considering the preferences of you and your guests, as well as the season and theme of your wedding. Here are a few classic options that are always a hit:

  • Old Fashioned: A sophisticated choice that never goes out of style, made with bourbon or rye, a sugar cube, water, bitters, and a twist of citrus rind.
  • Margarita: Ideal for summer or tropical-themed weddings, this tequila-based favorite can be served frozen or on the rocks with a salt or sugar rim.
  • Mule: Be it a Moscow Mule with vodka, a Kentucky Mule with bourbon, or a Mexican Mule with tequila, this refreshing mix of ginger beer and lime is perfect for casual or outdoor receptions.

These cocktails are just a starting point. Feel free to explore variations or completely unique concoctions that might better reflect your personal taste.

Signature Cocktail Signs

To guide your guests to these delightful offerings, signature cocktail signs are a must-have. These signs not only inform guests about the available drink options but also add to the decor and ambiance of your wedding. A beautifully designed sign can complement your wedding theme, featuring elegant calligraphy, whimsical illustrations, or even fun photos of the couple. Ensure the sign includes the name of the drink, the ingredients, and perhaps a brief explanation of the inspiration behind it, adding a personal touch that guests will appreciate.

Wedding Cocktail Names

Naming your wedding signature drinks can be as much fun as creating them. Here are a few themes you might consider:

  • Name After Pets: If you’re an animal lover, naming your drinks after your furry friends can be a cute and personal touch. Imagine sipping on a “Charlie’s Chardonnay” or a “Bella’s Bourbon Bash.”
  • Name After the Couple: Combining your names or using your newly shared last name can create a memorable and unique drink title, like “The Johnson Julep” or “Mandy and Mark’s Mojito.”
  • Punny Names: For couples who love a good laugh, punny names based on drink ingredients or popular phrases can add a light-hearted element. Think “Mint to Be Mojito” or “Berry Happy Together Sangria.”

Choosing to include wedding signature drinks adds a layer of personalization to your celebration that reflects your shared tastes and stories. Whether you opt for classic recipes or innovative new mixes, these beverages can become a memorable part of your wedding day. Don’t forget the power of a good presentation with stylish signs and creative names to really make your drink station a standout feature!
