After you've said "I do" and your wedding party assembles for photos, your guests need somewhere to gather, mix and mingle! Here are some helpful hints on how to direct the cocktail traffic along with some colorful inspiration from AKD events passed to set the festive mood. Two must haves for this in between hour are comfortable seating and a signature cocktail. We are big fans of the signature cocktail and highly suggest adding this element to your affair. Take a classic cocktail and add a modern twist by incorporating your color scheme to reflect the personality of your event. Here are a few ideas to get the cocktails flowing!
For this Backyard Barn themed wedding we played up the pink with spiked pink lemonade and blueberry fizzes served in mason jars. Rosemary sprig garnishes add flare and flavor!
For this New Year's Eve extravaganza we used the same orchid ingredient from the personal flower designs as a garnish in these decadent cosmos.
For your cocktail hour lounge and decor bring the comforts of indoor lounging outside with fabulous furniture rentals or custom builds. Join us at one of our workshops for rental references and design construction tips! http://www.aliciakdesigns.com/services/design/
There is also the option of keeping it classic and simple with standard size cocktail tables and champagne as your leading motif.
