Signature cocktails, anyone?!

Signature cocktails are a fabulous way to serve alcohol at a wedding without breaking the bank. They are also a great way to add some fun to the decor of the event! Choose a cocktail that goes along with the theme, or color scheme of the wedding. Lots of people give them cute names too. If you do do that, make sure that somewhere the ingredients of the drink are already listed. But I say, go crazy! Have fun with the names, and also have fun with the types of drinks. You can choose anything from a fruity, summery cocktail, to a very classy champagne cocktail. Just keep in mind that your drinks should reflect the personality of the couple getting married instead of tailored to the people attending the wedding.
