Signature Drink... Thoughts?

I'm not entirely sure how it works with an open bar, but to venues typically allow for signature drinks if coordinated with the coordinator and bar tender?

Are signature drinks too cliche? What are people's thoughts?

    Omg that is the cutest thing!! Such a great idea! Our vendors haven’t mentioned anything but if we were to do it, it would be minimal ingredients for sure. Thanks for the suggestion!!

    Typically your venue or caterer will ask if you'd like a signature drink if they're thorough enough. Some will even give you some recommendations as to what tends to be most popular amongst guests and you can tell them your guests preferences (if you know what they like) so they can recommend one based on that.
    Otherwise, I'd choose one with pretty basic ingredients and that's simple to put together so the bartender isn't spending too much time making each one. We chose a whisky and ginger ale with lime and it was a hit with our guests as most are big whisky drinkers. I even ordered this adorable picture so that guests knew what the drink was and named it after our dog, which added some decor to the bar while also being useful.Signature Drink... Thoughts? 1

    As long as the ingredients are what's normally offered at your bar, I don't see why your venue can't whip it up and include it if you have an open bar package. For example, if your signature drink is a Rum and Ginger Ale that you want to call "The Brooke," I can't imagine the venue/bartender saying no to it. If you were making a super concoction with things they have to order in and not part of your bar package, then they may say no or make you pay additional for it.

    It's a great way to show off your personality and you can use the signature drink as the toast during dinner if you don't want to pay for champagne.

    That's the cutest thing I've ever heard! I absolutely love that idea!

    Thanks for the input Michelle! My fiance is an avid mountain biker, so maybe we could name signature drinks after some trails he's ridden down.

    I think most people are going to order what they are used to drinking instead of looking at a menu. But I also think signature drinks are a fun thing for those indecisive or less adventurous guests. I don't think they're cliche but I've also only been to one wedding that had them available.

    We're personally having three signature drinks because we're naming them after our pets, but they're going to be relatively simple drinks that someone would order anyway, but just a way to include our fur babies in our day.
