Every bride and groom wants to add a personal touch to their wedding day and truly make it their own. A great way to customize your big day is to serve a signature cocktail. These specialized drinks are a fun way to kick off cocktail hour and allow your guests to pick between the bride’s drink and the groom’s drink. The bride and groom should pick their favorite beverage or one that is meaningful to the couple. The presentation of the drink should be special as well! Serving this cocktail with a fun straw, a fancy glass, or a dramatic garnish will get the party started and add pops of color too! Setting up a cute sign at the bar with the drink menu is a great way to let guests know what you are serving. Using koozies, napkins, and coasters can add another personal touch to cocktail hour and double as a favor! Keep in mind, cocktail hour is the pre party for your reception so make sure guests are mingling and sipping a signature cocktail!
A great way to add color and texture to your wedding is through linens. Linens transform your reception space and give you the freedom to make it your own. Some Venues and Caters have standard white linens but if your budget allows, we suggest renting linens to really change the look of your event. At We Tie The Knots, we like to think of it as “dressing” the room and we love hearing your visions for design! Linen companies offer a wide variety of options that will be sure to wow your guests and suit your individual personality. Some of our favorites are bold patterns and fun textures but you can never go wrong with classic styles that stand the test of time. Don’t be scared to consider patterns or bright colors, according to The Knot’s 2014 Trends, bright colors are back! Pairing a bold print or texture with other solid and neutral tones will create a balanced design for your space. Picking linens can be overwhelming, but with the help of the We Tie The Knots team it becomes a fun way to express yourself and create your dream wedding!
