The most expensive part of a wedding is not the wedding – it’s the reception. Serving food, drinks and cake to all of your guests really adds up. One way to save money on the bar tab is by having a Signature Drink.
If you want your guests to dance and keep the party going, you are probably having a bar and in general as a hostess, your guests shouldn’t have to pay for drinks at a cash bar. Really – Miss Manners says so. Your open bar doesn’t have to be a full bar though – just keep it simple with beer, wine, and a signature cocktail.
Having a signature cocktail is a fun way to incorporate your theme, wedding colors, personality, or honeymoon destination. My cousin and her new husband were headed to Antigua, and their signature cocktail was a tropical blue drink called Antigua Breeze.
Since we are headed to a warm-weather locale (to be revealed later), I’m also going for a tropical umbrella drink .
What is your favorite cocktail?
