Weddings are expensive, and we all know it. So if you’re spending a lot of money on your wedding, you might as well do things right—which means getting the best food and drinks available for your guests!
The latest trend in weddings heading into 2022 is to serve cocktails instead of wine. While traditionalists may disagree, studies have shown that serving cocktails increases the number of guests who get through the line faster, decreasing wait times. Plus, you get to choose from one of many exciting cocktail options.
There’s nothing like ordering a trendy drink on your wedding day. Here are five trends in wedding cocktails that will help set your big day apart!
- Traditional Cocktails
If you know your guests will appreciate a classic cocktail, go for it! These drinks never get old, and they’ll make your wedding feel classy and traditional.
Some favorites include the Moscow Mule, the Old Fashioned, the Mint Julep, or any other drink that’s been around for years but still has that unique “wedding cocktail” quality to it.
- Seasonal Cocktails
Another excellent option for wedding cocktails is to go with a seasonal drink. For example, if your wedding is in the summer, have a strawberry mint julep or a rosemary lemonade as one of your options. On the other hand, if your wedding is during the winter, serve hot buttered rum.
This will give your guests something to look forward to as they walk around and enjoy the festivities of your wedding day—they’ll have a drink that’s perfect for the season.
- Signature Cocktails
The most exciting thing you can do with wedding cocktails is to come up with a signature cocktail or create one together as a couple!
There are only two rules for this kind of cocktail: it should be something that you or your partner likes, and someone should be able to say, “this is a [your name] ’s cocktail” after trying it. Some caterers will even allow you to come up with a personalized recipe!
- Mocktail Options
If some of your guests want to abstain from alcohol, having some non-alcoholic options for them is a great way to keep everyone happy.
Try offering fresh fruit juices, sparkling water with lime slices, or perhaps even coffee drinks.
- Unique Alcohol Options
You don’t have to serve traditional cocktails at your wedding—why not try some unique alcohol options instead?
We all know how delightful it can be to have a drink with an umbrella in it while relaxing on the beach, so why not bring that feeling to your wedding? Serve slushies or a signature vodka flavor!
You’ll find that you keep guests on their toes by going this route, and your wedding will stand out in everyone’s minds!
