Signature Drinks are a fun and easy way to personalize the menu for your wedding or special event.  It’s another chance to incorporate your personality by including your favorite cocktail, and can also be used to add to your theme and color choices.  I love that there are so many great choices for drinks, I recently was playing around on The Knot’s Signature Cocktail finder, you can use this to search by type of drink, season or event color. 

Whether you are planning your best friend’s bridal shower or even if you plan to DIY and purchase all of the the beverages for your wedding, consider adding a Signature Drink.  Anything goes and you can even think about creating your own.
