Signature drinks?

Dh and I want to provide wine and beer at our renewal, so I've been looking into how that is worked. Seems like often what's offered is beer, wine, and a signature drink. What is that? Is anybody offering one?

Re: Signature drinks?

  • We've thought about it, but I think we're just going to go with wine and beer with liquor being cash. A signature drink is basically just a drink that you provide. It can be anything from a rum and coke to something you make up. Some people like to do them in their wedding colors (so maybe a cosmo if their colors include pink) or maybe the bride and groom's favorite drinks. It's a nice way to offer another option for those that don't like wine and beer.

    Yea I think it's usually just a cocktail to give people another option =)

  • I'd love to give people another option, but I can't imagine what. Lord knows, I'd never be able to make up my own!

  • You could work with your bartender to create something, or if you have any friends that are bartenders. Or you could try looking something up here: http://www.drinksmixer.com/

  • We are having 2 signature drinks- one that I like and one that FI likes. The biggest advantage to them is that during the cocktail hour the line at the bar gets long, whereas the signature drink is passed around as if it's an appetizer, thus no waiting in line. Plus you can have fun ones that match your wedding colors or just your favorite drink pre-made for people. Mine is going to be a Blushing Bride cocktail, bc it's pink and yummy :) I've also seen it where at the bar you place a sign that says something like "the bride would have... The groom would have..." which I think is cute

    Neat! I wonder if we can come up with a purple one! I'll have to go look up a Blushing Bride on that website jennipea just posted. Never heard of it! But then, I've never been to a wedding where there was alcohol ...

  • Ours is going to be grape lemonade I think. We dont drink, so its nonalcholic we will have a cash bar for those that wish to drink. I believe a signature drink is any drink that goes along with your wedding theme/ colors.
