II love the idea of a signature cocktail to greet guests as they arrive at your wedding reception. Guests can be treated to the ‘Madison Martini’ or the ‘Sam Sangria’ There are so many gorgeous cocktails around nowadays which make this really easy.

It’s a nice touch to tie the cocktail in with the colours of your wedding too – a garden wedding with bridesmaids in green and brown accents might feature a mint cooler and a mocha martini.

You might choose to put your cocktail in a glass decanter surrounded by clear crystal glasses post ceremony. With some cupcakes it will be a sweet surprise for your guests. Otherwise singular bottles of cocktails like Bellinis or piccolos of champagne served from tubs filled with ice with miniature straws will add to the celebratory feel.

Winter brides can cater the cocktails for the cold and serve hot chocolate with liqueur or hot mulled cider. Summer brides may serve strawberry margaritas with crushed ice to make a granita style drink.

Whatever the season- consider a beautiful cocktail to add to your celebration!
