Hello, loves! Today we’re tackling the hot topic of whether the cost of an open bar at weddings is worth it. Yesterday we received an email from soon-to-be weds, Ben and Sophie, who are getting married in May. They recently picked their wedding venue and now they’re tackling the high cost of an open bar. They ask,
[su_quote cite=”Ben & Sophie”]Hey, Emmaline! We’re torn on this one: should we have an open bar at our wedding? Or do you think guests are OK with cash bar instead? It’s more of a cost issue than anything and we can’t decide if we should cut our bar budget. What do you think?[/su_quote]
Let’s dive into this one, shall we?
Hello, lovelies! It’s Friday, you’re ready to party, and we’ve found just the thing for your bar! This wedding cocktails sign and napkins are the cutest thing we’ve seen in a long time for reception bars. So cute, in fact, you’ll want to re-use it in your own bar at home. We spotted them over at Laura Hooper Calligraphy, the pro when it comes to calligraphy everything. (P.S. She’ll even teach you how to do calligraphy!) The sign is hand-lettered and measures 8″ x 10″. Take a peek!
Wedding Cocktails Sign + Napkins
Are you planning to have a signature drink or mason jar drinks at your wedding? We talked this week about our obsession with wedding coasters as a favorite bar detail; swizzle sticks are a close second! Swizzle sticks are functional as actual drink stirrers, but more or less they’re used as a fun decoration. To share some swizzle-spiration with you today, we are sharing a new creation from Company Forty Two, where Shelly is once again inspiring us to want a huge bash just because! Her party decor and handmade details are amazing! Come on in and take a look at these swizzle sticks, today’s #HANDMADEADAY wedding find!

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!
Coasters for Weddings
1. Birch wood wedding coasters
These wedding coasters are essential for a rustic wedding bar. By Pixels and Timber.
2. Coasters as your Save the Date
These wedding coasters are so pretty! Send them in the mail as a save the date announcement instead of a traditional card. By Paper Street Press.
3. Eat, Drink and Be Married
These coasters are elegant and feature a fun saying: “Eat, Drink and Be Married”. We love this example which features the couple’s names, wedding date, and website address. Perfect for guests to visit after the wedding if you’re showcasing photos on your wedding website. By Ruffhouse Art.
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.
5. Fondest Memories
These are coasters AND cute memories in one! Have guests write down their favorite good times with the bride and groom. By Starboard Press.
6. Cheers Wedding Coasters
7. Initial Here
8. Thank You to Parents
9. Polka Dotted
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.
12. My Wish for the Newlyweds
Guests can write their names on these chalkboard coasters so they don’t lose sight of which drink is theirs.
14. Photo Save the Date
You can have your engagement photo placed onto a coaster and sent as a unique save the date, well ahead of the big day.
15. Escort Card Coasters
Meet the escort card coaster: it’s an escort card and drink coaster in one! Two birds, one stone.
16. Happily Ever After
Bright and cheery, these happily ever after coasters are a delightful touch.
17. Save the Date Coaster
Last but not least, this save the d-ate coaster is another favorite way to set the tone of your event and tie in your theme, too.

Move over, chalkboard! Well, we still love our beloved chalkboards… but mirror signs are taking center stage at weddings as a chic alternative. A mirror can be hand-lettered with a paint pen (like these, which have a fine point) to add an extra dose of pretty to your ceremony or reception space. We’ve seen them used as welcome signs for guests, we’ve seen a mirror in lieu of a paper program, as a bar menu, and more. Today we’re sharing how to use mirror signs at your wedding with five unique finds. Plus, we found a few other mirror inspired decor we know you’d love. Check it all out below…
Wedding Mirror Signs
1. Use a mirror to welcome guests
A simple mirror and paint will do!
This sign ties in the couple’s travel-inspired theme, too.
2. Use a sign to share your ceremony details.
No need for paper programs!
3. A sign can be used to show guests to their seats.
At the reception, a mirror sign can be used as a seating chart. Here are two examples:
4. Use a sign to draw attention to a special bar.
Having a cigar or scotch bar for the gentlemen? A mirror sign will really make it POP.
5. Or, use a sign to draw attention to special beverages at your bar.
This is especially fitting if you have a signature beverage or cocktail.
A simple ‘cheers’ is a good fit, too!

And, I just couldn’t help but mention these additional finds we spotted. This gold ampersand mirror sign will look fab as part of your decor; mirror coasters are a cute touch for your sweetheart table! From Hop Studio.
I love this monogram mirror cake topper…
… and these mirror table numbers.
