Hello, hello! Happy Friday! Today we’re talking about how to personalize your wedding drinks + bar. Anyone can serve beer, wine, mixed drinks, and iced tea, but we’re showing you how to take your wedding drink one step beyond. We’ve rounded up seven of our favorite wedding drink accessories to inspire your bar and you’re going to love what we’ve found. Oh, and since it just wouldn’t feel right to dazzle you with these clever finds, we’re also giving one of these away to one lucky reader. Which one is it? Read the article below and scroll to the bottom to find out!
7 Clever Wedding Drink Accessories
1. A Signature Drink + Pretty Sign
First, I can’t emphasize the signature drink enough. A signature cocktail – with alcohol or sans – is an essential way to personalize your bar. Guests love to see the bride’s and the groom’s drink(s) of choice and it gets them to try something new. This chalkboard sign (custom designed!) ties it altogether!
2. Personalized Wine Glasses
Your lovely ladies will adore these personalized wine glasses, hand-painted with their dresses on the front (and name on the reverse). Makes a great gift!
3. Wine Tags for Guests
I envision this idea as an escort card setup. Guests find their escort card (to tell them where to be seated); the escort card is attached to one of these personalized wine tags. Guests go to the bar, fill up a wine glass (or champagne), and tie one on.
4. Add a (Colorful) Splash of Sugar
Ooh! A colorful sugar rim at your bar is sure to get guests talking. This one, in particular, is flavored to taste like wedding cake. Yum!
5. Drink Tags with Striped Straws
People love stirrers AND straws (no lipstick smudges here!) Combine the two with a sweet personalized heart, like these bright + cheery ones we found.
6. Personalized Drink Napkins
“Time to drink champagne and dance on the table.” Enough said!
7. ‘To Have, Hold & Keep Your Beer Cold’ Koozies
And, last but not least, let us not forget the personalized beer (or soda pop) koozies. This one reads, “To Have, To Hold, and to Keep Your Beer Cold”. Makes a great favor (particularly for outdoor weddings).
