How to Plan a Coffee Themed Wedding

Francisco & Rebecca tied the knot in a small, intimate wedding ceremony in a coffee shop where they shared one of their first dates. (Awwwwww.) What a perfect way to tie a sweet memory and your love for coffee! These images were taken by the lovely Hyer Images based in Madison, Wisconsin.

Getting married in your favorite spot, the place you met or your first date is a terrific way to share a chapter of your love story with your guests. And, can we just add how adorable this couple is? Cheers, you two!

How to Plan a Coffee Bar

If you’ll be tying the knot with a coffee themed wedding – or, you’re blessed with a sweetest little coffee shop around the corner that doesn’t mind a few guests in attendance, make a great first impression with plenty of coffee drinks. In lieu of alcohol (or in addition to) opt for yummy coffee instead. Buy plenty of flavored creamers, offer sugar and swizzle sticks, personalized coffee cups and plenty of delicious donuts for dunking.

Signature drinks for the bride and groom…

The picture of the silver coffee beans – These are NOT spray painted, these are metal -www.joulies.com/ – these are actually little metal beans for keeping your coffee hot – just a warning, don’t try to spray paint coffee beans silver, they don’t look like this and it ends up a huge mess! ;)

the “spray painted coffee beans” are infact “cofee joulies” they cool off and keep coffee at the proper drinking temperature for a long time.
