Brighten up your wedding cocktail hour with some DIY neon coasters and cocktail stirrers.
If you are serving alcohol at your wedding you can expect that your cocktail bar will be a magnet for many of your wedding guests as they drink, talk and have a good time helping you to celebrate your new marriage. So you want the bar to be designed in a way that avoids or at least minimizes big crowds and long lines. You can do that by considering some creative cocktail bar ideas for your wedding and by consulting our definitive guide to serving alcohol at your wedding as well our infographic guide for calculating how much alcohol you will need at your wedding.
And as you plan for the service of drinks and cocktails at your wedding, don’t forget to plan for that all-important pre-wedding cocktail for the bride so that she has a little something to take off the edge before she walks down the aisle!
And for a DIY wedding project, you can brighten up your wedding cocktail hour with these wonderful DIY neon coasters and cocktail stirrers,
It might be a Tuesday morning where we are, but that doesn’t man we can’t keep dreaming of Pina Coladas, Caipirinhas and Cosmopolitans.
When it comes to cocktail hours at weddings, it’s all too easy to serve up bellinis in a flute glass and leave it at that.
But we don’t do things by halves around here. (In case you hadn’t noticed!)
Your cocktail hour is a great point in your wedding to get the party started early with lots of chic style, personal touches and tasty tipples.
Whether your wedding is fun and rustic, or elegant and sophisticated, you can apply some of the style from your day to the drinks. Feature your very favourite cocktails and serve them up in jam jars, milk bottles or cocktail dispensers, and add some edible adornments and seasonal charms.
From elegant twists on cocktail umbrellas, to stripey straws, and flower-infused ice cubes (check out how to create those beauties here) it’s not all about the vessels, or what’s in them, it’s about the optional extras as well.
Be inspired with these beautiful beverages, and wow your guests from their very first sip…

So gorgeous, and such a neat way to add a little quirkiness to a part of the wedding that’s often rather predictable for guests.
