Custom Cocktails

We all want to go to a wedding where there’s an open bar, but if you want to really make your bar stand out, have a bartender design custom cocktails for your big day! Work with them to create a drink that symbolizes you and your partner individually, use your favorite liquors and mixers, and come up with a unique name that’ll stand out from the typical wine and beers. You can also just have a limited selection of drinks available, making those drinks the ones you and your partner drink most often. This puts a fun and personalized spin on one of everyone’s favorite parts of the reception.

Decadent Desserts

Who says a wedding needs to have cake?! There are so many other delicious desserts that are just as good to be served at a wedding! In recent years, it’s becoming more and more popular to do different kinds of desserts and skip the cake altogether. It started off by having a large number of cupcakes that were set out to form what looked like a cake, and now it’s gone as far as donut bars and create your own sundae bars! If you want to take a tasty stand to separate from the norm, this would be a cost friendly and fun way to do so!

Dancing is always fun during a reception, but there can always be more to entertain the guests! Throw together some customized entertainment for your guests, and your wedding is sure to stand out as one of the more fun times!
