Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and you’ll want everything to be perfect – including your cocktail bar. A great way to take your cocktail bar to the next level is to choose glassware that matches your wedding décor and works perfectly with the cocktails you offer. Unique glassware will provide an elevated experience for your guests and can be purchased or rented in all colors, styles, and sizes.
Offering a signature cocktail or two will take your wedding cocktail bar to the next level. This is a fun and meaningful way to express your tastes and styles as a couple. Whether it’s a tropical Mai Tai or a classic old-fashioned, you can create a signature cocktail that guests will love. Choosing signature cocktails that can be made beforehand (or at least the base) also allows your bartenders to serve your guests and keep the bar line flowing quickly. Adding festive straws, umbrellas, and fruit slices is another way to add a personal touch to the beverages you are serving.
Creative Cocktail Names
Coming up with clever names for your wedding cocktails is another way to personalize your day and show off your personality. You can choose names related to the theme of your wedding, your hobbies or interests, your favorite characters, or even a tribute to your pet. You can also use the standard cocktail name and simply add an additional word or something that’s meaningful to the two of you.

Seasonal Fruits & Herbs
Adding seasonal fruits and herbs to your drinks can add flavor and flair to your traditional wedding bar. If you’re having a spring or summer wedding, incorporating berries, such as strawberries and blackberries, into drinks can make them taste even better. Fresh herbs like mint, rosemary, lavender, and basil can add a beautiful aroma and fresh flavor to your drinks. These can also be used to create fun and flavorful syrups that can be used to sweeten drinks and can be pre-made to save time on your wedding day.
Custom Drink Toppers and Napkins
Take your wedding cocktails to the next level by creating custom drink toppers. Printed with edible ink on wafer paper, these toppers can be placed on top of any hot or cold beverage and will provide a memorable experience for your guests. Custom cocktail napkins and stir sticks are another way to personalize the drinks at your bar. Think of customizing with a photo, your wedding logo, names, or initials. Bee Box Design Studio or Etsy is great for ordering these customized items.
