It’s no secret, cocktails are all everyone can talk about when it comes to wedding drinks. What better way to surprise your guests as they arrive at your reception than with a wedding cocktail. They’re guaranteed crowd-pleasers which has got us thinking… Why do we love cocktails so much when it comes to our wedding receptions?

1. Your big day calls for extra special drink

Why serve plain old bubbly at your wedding reception drinks when you can stand out from the crowd and treat your loved ones to an extra special cocktail. Whether you liven up your fizz with a burst of fruitiness or select something sophisticated like a classic martini, weddings call from something that little bit special.

2. There’s a cocktail to suit every style, whatever the season

Ask anyone what their favourite cocktail is and they’ll have an answer for you. Which is why there is a cocktail to suit every style and taste. What’s even better is that no matter what time of year you’re getting hitched, you’re going to find a cocktail to suit your occasion, from summery mojitos to a warming winter Pimms punch.

3. Creative cocktails to get the conversation flowing

A welcoming arrival drink is just the ticket to get guests chatting at your wedding reception. As the special couple, you’ll be slipping off to have some gorgeous wedding photos taken and what better way to get the conversation flowing among your guests whilst your gone, than with a showstopper cocktail featuring as the ultimate conversation starter!

4. Two words: “Selfie time!”

Weddings are made for taking photos and we think you’ll agree with us when we say cocktails are pretty much the epitome of instagrammable wedding snaps. It’s your wedding after all, so why not show off with brightly coloured Mai Tai’s or beautifully garnished margaritas all round.

5. Get personal with a signature cocktail

When planning your wedding, it’s the perfect opportunity to let your personality shine through, which is why signature cocktails are officially all the rage. Combine your favourite beverages, blended with ice, with a dash of fruit and voila! There you have your one and only, signature cocktail.

6. Just because… who doesn’t love cocktail hour?

You just have to mention cocktail hour to anyone and their eyes light up, so why not bring the fun to your wedding? Who says you have to stop at serving just one type of cocktail either? Drinks are one of the most talked-about topics when it comes to weddings so why not give your guests what they desire… A cocktail hour filled with their number one tipples, from crowd-pleasing cosmos to inspiring gin-infused delights.
