Signature Drinks!

Are you having signature drinks at your wedding? If so which ones? Any recommendations that aren't too pricey but are a bit girly?

My FH doesn't like scotch or anything too strong so we were hoping for something like peach Bellinis but sans the pulp.

    There are some fussy recipes online but really pimms, ginger ale and cucumber is all you need.
    16,000 pimms cups a day are consumed at Wimbledon!
    of course you should do lots of researchSmiley winking

    Yumm! Belinis were originally my first pick, but depending on the place and the kind of peach juice/nectar they use, I'm afraid of having too much pulp or crappy juice alternative. Otherwise 100% this would be the one! FH doesn't like gin and tonic lol!

    We have a bar set up just at the back of the outdoor ceremony space (as it will double as our cocktail hour space). We'll have the below set up with lemonade and water (with lemons floating in the water). I'll also be adding a tall vase with water in it and floating lemons.

    Another great feature is that pimms is only 25% alcohol vs 35-40% for vodka so less drunk people!

    Ohhh such a good choice!
    My friends husband is from England and introduced these to me, and when we went to England last year for their wedding it was one of their signature drinks.

    Definitely perfect for summer!

    That's a great idea! Though we have a mocktail available on arrival, I don't know whether or not we get to pick! I assume we would (I'll just go email my event coordinator lol!)

    I've never heard of this drink before! My fiance and I are on a quest to try everything people recommend, so as our cheat days from the gym and food, we are trying new drinks each time. This will be my next one! Thanks dear!

    We're not doing any signature drinks.. really most our guests know what they prefer and we can just order our favs too. I think it probably helps that I don't really drink, but if I do, I'm a wine girl and my FH usually is a straight sipping whisky kind of guy. Not very fun signature drinks.


    The proper 'signature' drink we're doing is straight up lemonade which will be served as soon as people get to the venue for the ceremony. I have an obsession.

    It was mentioned, at our venue, that we could offer our guests a drink after the ceremony, to kick off the cocktail reception. We haven't put much thought into it just yet, but if we did end up with a signature drink(s) it would be:

    Him: Julian Drink (Rum + Coke) but with Appleton Rum (his fave!)

    Me: French 75
    Champagne, lemon juice, gin and dashes of simple syrup.

    We're going to have a few, based on what we drink. I don't actually know what's in any of these though, as my fiance does all the drink mixing! We will change the names of them but what they are called are Cosmopolitan, Sex on the beach, Tequila Sunrise, Rum and Coke (the only one I actually know all the ingredients!)

    I took inspiration from a drink called "blue zen" and gave it a cute 'wedding' themed name!

    Mmmm! I'm not a big beer drinker, but I'm sure the FH would appreciate it! I do adore cucumber mojitos though, but I don't know if the fam will love this one lol Thank you though! I think we will go with the beer as his drink for sure!

    My husband's drink was some craft beer and mine was a cucumber mojito. Very refreshing!

    Haha fair enough. Moscow mules are nice for summer so refreshing. Look up "the cohiba" from cactus club. Super light and the blackberry makes it a little purple-y , very pretty & simple ingredients . Good Luck! Smiley smile

    I think the venue & season play a factor but I went to a wedding that offered Sangria and another that had margaritas, I loved it!
