Wedding Day Libations

Top five beverage trends for your big day.


Published:

Signature cocktails are here to stay. The drink newlyweds select to be served at their reception should reflect who they are and why they’re a winning combination, but it also sets the tone for the evening. A cucumber cooler says sit down and relax, while a tiki tipple encourages dancing.

Casual is chic. Serving a signature sip in Mason jars adds a personal, rustic touch to a backyard or a banquet hall wedding, as does a communal punch bowl. Opt for a meal served family style, or cupcakes instead of cake to further set a casually cool tone.

Personalization is priceless. Customized wine glasses featuring hand-painted pictures of the bridal party and groomsmen are popping up at wedding parties. They make for a whimsical wedding favor or work as place cards. Etsy Artisans can create unique designs in your color scheme.

Sustainable sips are stylish. More and more newlyweds are serving drinks with eco-friendly origins, such as TRU Organic’s line of spirits and Benziger Family Winery’s biodynamic or certified organic wines. Rustic recycled glasses complete the scene and are a logical registry item.

Ice-cold treats are red hot. Frozen cocktails are a fun and memorable reception detail, especially in the summer heat. The tantalizing Tequila kick in SnöBar’s Margarita ice-pop is just as powerful as a traditional cocktail, but it’s way cooler.
