17 Coasters That Will Look Absolutely Lovely at Weddings

How will you incorporate your personal style into your wedding bar? The first things couples always tackle are drinks and glassware, but what about fun and unexpected details that can make your bar really POP? Besides fun swizzle sticks or straws like these and a signature drink sign, wedding coasters are another detail we love to see at receptions. We have seen coasters given as favors, we have seen coaster save the dates, escort cards, and we have seen them turned into creative guest book alternatives. A unique wedding coaster can act as an element of decor for your theme, as well as offer functionality by keeping tables clean of condensation and acting as a “drink saver” (more on that below). To illustrate how awesome wedding coasters can be, we’ve rounded-up seventeen finds to inspire your unique wedding bar style. Read on to see what we’ve found!

4. With Love from Chicago

Or Detroit. Or Los Angeles. Or NYC. Wherever your love adventure began! By Allie Hasson. Sidebar: it looks like this is the last batch of wedding coasters with “Chicago” and they might not be making more (sadface). Hmmm. I say, ask them anyway and maybe they’ll get a huge response and make them for all cities, since they’re incredibly lovely! I call dibs on Romeo.

10. Wedding Coaster Favors

Wrap up a set of coasters and give them to guests as favors, like these by My Little Chickadee Creations which are custom and handmade.

11. Please Don’t Take My Drink

A wedding coaster can be used as a drink saver, when placed on the rim of a glass. This coaster reads, “Please don’t take my drink, I’m dancing“. I swear, the number of drinks “cleaned up” while people are dancing is incredible! It will save you money, too, as a bonus, since most guests go get a new drink when they discover theirs is gone.
