With less guests you can get a little more crafty with your cocktails! Adding a signature cocktail to your drink menu will create a memorable experience for you and your guests. When choosing your cocktails we recommend choosing based on the season. For the perfect summer or spring drink you could do champagne topped with fresh raspberries and a dash of raspberry liqueur. For a festive fall wedding you can spice up your wedding toast with an apple cider mojito. To warm up during your winter wedding you can serve your guest spiked hot chocolate. Regardless of the season, the options are truly endless for your special cocktail!

Be extra with your table setting

To make your wedding truly standout we recommend going personal. When deciding on table settings go with personalized handwritten menus. Top each place setting with hand-calligraphed place cards. Then splurge with beautiful and extravagant lush flowers for the centerpieces. Add fun textures with linens and candles to create a warm ambience. Instead of multiple tables maybe even consider creating family style seating with a u shape setup or long estate styled table. Your options are endless!
